Hi all, im setting up for my first grow. Seeds popped (pinapple express auto) and setting up grow space. Keeping everything small and covert im in a 2x2 for one small auto in a 2 gallon fabric pot and coco. I got a 6" ac infinity s6 and have a migro 100+cob as lighting. Now trying to fit a 6" filter, fan and cob as well as a circulation fan in a 2x2 and having space for a plant seems impossible!!

So i had read you can push your air through a carbon filter on the output side of the fan. Doing this i just need to put in a small length of 6" duct into one port hole in the top of my tent to draw air out of the tent, then conect to input side of fan and the connect output side of fan to carbon filter all hidden on the outside of the tent. Question is will it work just as well pushing air out of it versus drawing air into it??

I upscaled the fan for two reasons, first i can run it on setting 1 or 2 and thats fine for the 2x2 while keeping noise to near zero and secondly if this works i can upscale for a bigger or second tent linked via a y join and draw both yhrough the one filter.

Any advice or people tried it??

I run my fans/filter like this and have done for a couple of years without issue...I have an 8" RVK straight into the top of a massive CF...my 1.5m flower tent & 900mm drying tent linked up via y adapter...

I have the fan on 1/3 speed and still maintain negative pressure on both tents...so easily enough capacity to link up my 1.2m veg tent too...just cant be arsed 😀

Hey fellow grower , allways used a fan ( in /out ) with filter  allways use rule of thumb friend.  You want bigger fan pulling air out , an better  using a filter because it’s hides the pungent fresh weed smell , need that filter on haha
