diy pc grow box

Front view with the intake fan.

Back view without being really covered up yet.

Well that’s it for now folks, ill be working on this beast more today and will upload pic’s when I’m done (hopefully). Feel free to ask any questions you might have and thanks again for stopping by. Hopefully this will be a winner!
I’ve done one other grow with bagseed, 2 plants both turned out male (bad luck huh :rolleyes3) The previous grow box was a DIY rubbermaid tub that really didn’t have enough time and effort put into it. I’m hoping this grow WILL be different as I’ve put over 3 weeks into building this PC grow box.
Well let’s see some pictures of the progress shall we, keep in mind I’m still not completely finished but will be very soon!
Just a basic side view of the PC with the 2 exaust fans on top.
Exaust fans on (no way to really turn off the LED’s without turning off the fan, believe me I tried ) but after asking around most everyone said that those LED’s have very little power and shouldn’t affect light’s out period.

I started off by buying a full tower off ebay for 60 bucks and it all started from there. I can already hear you asking, “why would you want to grow in such a small space?” The answer to that question is personal choice, straight up. I probably do have room for a bigger space to grow but this is only for personal use plus the thought of a PC being turned into a grow box intrigued me.

Hello all! And welcome to my first grow journal. Since I have never done one of these before (only read them:439:) please bear with me through this, I know…

Diy pc grow box

“1st time grower. Plants are 1 month old, and 12″ tall now. Set up for less than $250. Used cab.w/4 bulb, 24″ T5’s, 4″ elec exhaust, Thanx for great info.”

Important: The opening for your intake hole should be about twice the size of your exhaust hole.

Then reality set in: I have a small space, in a small house, in a crowded neighborhood.
The day I got a recommendation for medicinal Cannabis was a relief. This was followed by the knowledge and urgency that I needed to get some plants in the ground immediately.
Next to the fan room is space for other more technical things. Here we find the ballast and command switching station.
Also, I installed a “Kill-a-Watt” device to monitor my electrical usage so I can easily calculate the total extra cost to my electricity bill each month.
The first thing to deal with was the Intake and exhaust – a clean environment and fresh air for my plants.

The final bounty boasted nine ounces of dried and cured cannabis flowers.
