After doing some simple math, you’ve reached a value of 3000W and now you know that, for example, if your light fixture consumes 400W and your exhaust fan 150W, it comes down to a total of 550W and the max wattage for that circuit is 3000W so everything should run smoothly.

After you have all the poles and connectors ready, you need to cut the plastic sheet.

Proper ventilation also helps you maintain humidity levels on point because it is super important, especially during the flowering stage so by having a good ventilation system you can get rid of the excess moisture caused by the water the substrate retains and the moisture your plants release through transpiration.

Voltage x Amperage = Max Wattage

Some lights are heavier than others or maybe you’ll need to use more than one light fixture. So remember to test the structure you’ve made with the exhaust fan, carbon filter, and light fixtures (and maybe add more support) so you don’t risk killing your plants if the equipment falls on them.

You can build a good stealth grow tent as big as you want, with everything you need to, from the appropriate structure for the light fixtures to the exhaust fan and filter, and as long as you can accomplish the main requirements, you will have a fully functioning grow tent.

Grow “box”

A grow box is easier to build, although you cannot disassemble it effectively and the plywood can rot after a while because of the humidity and eventual water spills. To make a grow box out of plywood and wood beams, you’ll need a structure similar to the structure of a grow tent.

The size of the poles obviously depends on the height and size of the grow tent you want to build, but here’s an example to build a 1x1x2 grow tent.

Momentarily discouraged, I quickly scrapped the idea of a dedicated room filled to the brim. I began with getting clear about my intentions; I wanted to inconspicuously and autonomously produce my medicine. This was a much more respectable and realistic goal, and one that I could embrace.

Then reality set in: I have a small space, in a small house, in a crowded neighborhood.
