Hey fellow stoners, I’m looking at building an new grow space and just wanted to see what thought and advice people have on it. 

im currently half way through my first ever grow which is a space bucket set up using a 300w viparspectra light, 4inch pc fans and carbon filter growing in soil, my original plan was to build 2/3 space buckets once this one is complete but I’ve since realised this was a stupid idea and would not be cost effective.

So what I’m looking at doing is building a cupboard that is 65cm x 100cm x 140cm. I need to get about 4 ounces per grow to be self sufficient (is this possible in that space)? 
 
To begin with I need to stick with my current light but once the space bucket grow is harvested I was hoping the money I save getting high on home grown I would upgrade the light to a mars hydro TS600 (would this be Sufficient for the space) or would I be better off with the TS1000? 

I plan on using 2 4inch pc fans for intake an exhaust and another in the cupboard for circulation. i’m thinking about putting  tube heaters in the cupboard to keep temps up. 

im just wondering what people’s thoughts are on this and looking for any advice.

65cm x 100cm x140cm is the space I have and I need to get 4 ounces per harvest can this be done with the set up I’m thinking. 

thanks for any input

The TS1000 is good for 60x70cm if you use your old Lamp for vegging you can get 6 crops a year.

I made 158g with 1 plant vegging 9 weeks it filled my 60x60cm space totally.

Plants are like children - always surprising you.

2 plants in that space would work, I get approx. 4oz per plant so 4 between 2 is easily doable...TS600 is only good enough for 2ft2 so the TS1000 would be a better option (dont forget percys discount 😉 )

Also I would get a better extract fan, then you wont need one on the intake as it will run passive...you need to exchange the full amount of air at least once every 3 minutes so your space is roughly 70sq feet so a fan with minumun 30 ft2 per minute flow rate is needed...a PC fan will not do this

Its better to go over spec IMO so I would be looking for 40-50ft2 per minute and a speed/temp controller

Your goal is easily doable but you will have a learning curve to deal with. My tents are .9 x .5 meters and 4 ounces is very easy to accomplish in this space. Most of the time I exceed double that yield but this has come with experience. Even if you don’t reach that goal on the first try it is within your reach.
