led grow box with carbon filter

by:Booguan     2020-09-06
This is a very simple growth box measurement (HxWxL)4ft. x2ft. x2ft. .
There is a simple 180 watt LED light in the box, but there is plenty of room for larger, more powerful lights.
The air inlet on the side of the box captures any light, completely darkening the interior of the growing box.
The carbon filter at the top of the growth box, filter out any smell and cycle the constant fresh air for your plants.
Assuming you buy everything new, the maximum estimated cost of this growth box is $300. 00 (
Including light).
Why would I build this? LED)Grow Box?
I need something to grow my plants, but I don\'t want to spend my money on cheap planting tents;
One is made in China and may be toxic to my plants.
So I did the next best thing and built my own planter box.
Buying a new, good growth tent of roughly the same size with a carbon filter will cost roughly the same amount as the growth box here.
It\'s not the most beautiful or smooth growing box, but it\'s definitely done the job!

8 \"inline fan, 8\" tent flange, 1.
5 \"rubber casters wheels, 180 w led lights, eye bolts, Lg.
Volume Gorilla Tape, 1.
5 \"screws for all purposes, painting, screen screening, silicone adhesive, wire Brad nail, wood glue, 5 gal.
Bucket with lid, weather stripping, heavy (3x outlet)
Extension cord of activated carbon, 22 oz-40 oz ,(Panel)
Air filter, 2ft x 4ft plywood, 2 \'x4\' medium fiber board, 2x2x8 rivets, 1x4x8 board, 2ft x 4ft plywood panel tool once you have all the materials and tools you will need to measure and cut the blocks of wood needed to build the frame of the box (See Pictures).
Once you cut all the material and pieces of the box to a certain length, continue to build the wooden frame of your box.
You can use the video as an overview in this step, and use the marked picture to guide you through the steps to build the Grow box frame.
On one side of the growth box, you will install an air inlet.
This inlet vent can also capture any ambient light so that the inside of the growth box remains completely dark when the light goes out.
However, fresh air can flow through the growth box without hindrance as long as the exhaust fan runs.
After you have built the inlet vent/lamp trap, make sure that the vent is comfortably installed in the frame of the production box.
Next, use two custom fitting panels to surround the finished air intake with the growth box frame.
One panel covers the outside of the vent and the other covers the inside.
At the top of the box you will cut a round hole of 8 diameter.
This is the 8-inch tent flange suitable area for carbon filters.
Follow the video that guides you how to prepare the carbon filter section first.
Next is the assembly of carbon filters.
Install eyes is the best
Install the bolts in front of the panel. The eye-
Bolts give you an anchor to fix the light or fan.
Connect the remaining side panels to your growth box.
The remaining space will effectively act as your front door/opening upon completion.
You need a way to power the LED lights and the fans in the box.
To do this, a heavy extension string is attached and sealed on the back plate.
Don\'t forget to make sure the inside of the panel is painted white for optimized reflection.
WheelsI simply sealed my growth box with a heavy-duty tape.
I started with a long strip of tape, first laying the tape to cover the tiny space between the edges of the panel.
After that, I used a wider tape to seal and cover the first one.
I think this might provide a stronger seal.
One advantage of using tape to seal the edge of the box is that if for any reason you want to break the box, you have that ability.
Sealing the box with calk is an option, though your box is hard to break apart.
Weather stripping can be placed at the edge of your front opening.
You can try to leave a 1 instead of stripping the weather flush with the edge of your opening.
Peel off your lips 5mm above the edge of your door.
Except for the inside edge of the floor of the box, do so anywhere you place the peel.
If you put the peel here, it is not flush with your edge line, and when you try to close the box, it is possible that you wrap the peel with the bottom edge of your door.
It seems that if you are doing this correctly, you may not need to add heavy adhesive tape to the door to cover any light/air leakage, thus sealing your box.
To seal the box, I had to pile up a few layers of tape and add a layer of covered tape to the edge.
The video explains how I did it.
The last door is by no means polished, but it does work as needed.
Hinges would be another option for better doors, but as a sound non-wood worker/cabinet maker I tried using hinges a few times and the door ended up being worse.
Add your finishing touches and spray the rest in a growth box that you haven\'t turned white yet.
Connect the LED light and plug it into the internal power outlet of the box.
Connect the bottom of the finished carbon filter to the top of the growth box.
Then fill it with activated carbon.
The activated carbon should be evenly dispersed inside and covered with any penetrating light.
Connect the top of the carbon filter with the fan.
Plug the power plug of the fan into the external extension string socket on the back of the box. Your Done!
Now you can put a plant in the box and start growing. . . .
