Places You Might Consider Growing Weed In


For most people, a spare closet is the most obvious choice to use as a grow room. Closets are built to inherently conceal whatever may be inside them, although additional security measures will need to be taken. Closets are also self-contained, which makes it easier to control the atmosphere, including getting air in and out. Weed grinders are rarely better value than on herbgrinders.

Closets do have their drawbacks though. Heat build-up can easily become a problem without proper ventilation. Electrical cords will most likely need to be fed into the closet and light can leak in and out through the door cracks. Also remember that you need room to work in your garden, so if the space is small or cramped with closet junk, it could be difficult to work in. Despite these drawbacks, a closet may be your only option. If it's a large or walk-in closet, it may be your best option.


Bedrooms offer good opportunities, but temperature can be a bit of a problem. On the other hand, most of the time it's simple to adjust the room to your plants' needs because walls and ceiling are flat and straight cornered. However, there may still be some constructing to do to create false walls to partition part of the room for growing.

One challenge could be the windows that have to be sealed off so that no

light can get in or out. Simply nailing them shut with plywood could attract unwanted attention, so at least hang up a nice curtain before nailing a board up. Windows could be used to get fresh air into the room, but you wouldn't want to use them to get stale air out because you don't know who might be outside smelling the sweet bouquet of your marijuana plants. Also, strong winds might blow the air in, consequently impeding your ventilation from working properly.


Most of the time, basements will have a constant temperature and humidity, which makes controlling the atmosphere very easy. Getting enough air in and out, as well as getting rid of water, could be a problem. If you have a chimney or something similar to get rid of the exhaust-air, a basement would be near perfect.


The main problem with attics is the temperature. In the summer it may get too hot and in winter your plants may get too cold. Reversing the light cycle so that the light turns on at night and

turns off during the day sometimes alleviates this problem. Another problem with some attics is that they are just not large enough to hang lamps properly and can be too cramped to work in. Attics come in many shapes and sizes, so it's up to you to determine what you can and can't do in your space.
