    Default help me out please folks ........

    hi there talkers , ive allways done outdoor growing guerilla stylee, but i have decided to bite the bullit, and at least try an indoor grow ....i have a family member with cancer and another with bad fibromyalgia so i need it to help them ........ HERES THE THING....
    i have no idea if i have the right gear ... ive invested in a little tent 60x60x140 and decided to try autos to start to see how i get on ... exipment i have is as follows ....

    tent 60x60x140
    4 inch carbon filter
    4 inch in line fan
    9 inch swivel ocilating fan
    1 x 350w led pannel
    1 x 150w led pannel

    HERES THE QUESTIONS......
    is this set up enough for the size of the tent?
    would 4 plants be too many in that size?
    is that enough light?

    also would it prevent smells? as i have teenage kids and CANNOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES have any smells at all...
    how would i cover the smell when the door of the tent is open to water them etc?

    is it best to vent back into the tent, or into the loft?

    sorry for all the questions as im sure all you pro growers think theyre daft, but its all new to me and i cant afford to fek it up by the kids smelling ANYTHING AT ALL ... they learn about it in school and know the smell of it ...
    many many thanks for any help you an give

    I use a 4x4x8 ft tent I flower 3 plants at a time but there is plenty of room for 4. I cant help you with the led issue because I run 2 315 watt CMH. I have teenagers at home as well and I vent outside with a 6 inch carbon filter and 6 inch fan. I do get odors when I open the tent to take care of my ladies. The further into flower the worse the odor gets. Good luck!

    My tent's 90cm wide and 60 deep. I have to train em low so they get bushy. No way I could fit more than 2 in there. I reckon 50cm square footprint per plant would be ideal.

    I'd exhaust into the loft. Maybe get acoustic or phonictrap ducting. You can keep the fan in the attic too, maybe build a isolation box and hang it on hungers to reduce vibration.

    No idea about the lights but I expect they'll need a ft min between em and the canopy.

    My biggest noise issues come from my filter/exhaust openings. Fans and dehumidifiers also.

    Good luck dude

    I had a 60x60x140 tent with all same specks. I used to have 2 auto flowering and am then start an other 2 half way. Re odor I used to buy the odor neutralizer tubs and I used to put on by the door and one on top of the tent and I used a subtle air freshener or incense if your into that.

    I have had the same one for five grows. I just bought a backup. I cant smell anything when I go outside where it vents so I figure I'm good

    depends on the quality and the rH%

    if ur in veg and running a high humidity above 70% it won't last as long,
    my rhino pro will last 2 years+ if treated correctly

    i often see people vegging and using humidifiers, would be lucky to last 1 year before needing replaced,
    the smell just gets stronger and stronger especially if ur in flower,

    i vent into the attic so id smell it outside if it was going bad, is another reason i prefer a separate veg/flowering tents

    I have an ipower 4" filter and 1.5x1.5x2m tent with some stinky buds. No smells at all.

    Why don't you set up some hippie aroma therapy crap in the house too?

    if you go cheap on the cF it might bite you in the ass tbh,
    Mountain Air are real professional filters, with a matching price tag

    my RhinoPro has been going for 16months and no smell problems
    i do run a dehumidifier to make sure it stays under 70% rH though
