You’ve decided to stop buying from your dispensary, or “around the way” weed guy, and are now starting a cannabis grow room in your crib-congrats! But what are the best places to grow cannabis in the house? Let’s take a look at the various options to give you the pros and cons of each location.
First Things First
Cannabis plants do best when they get regular sunlight, a regular breeze and proper watering. If you can provide those things, you’ll be able to grow healthy plants. You will need the following supplies to grow weed in your home:
- A clean water source
- Access to sunlight or grow lamps
- A fan
- Concealment and privacy
The room you choose should give you easy access to those things.
Keep Your Cannabis Grow Room Setup Private
Even if cannabis legal where you live, you don’t want to let potential thieves or nosy neighbors know about your indoor garden plot. If your plants are near a window, put up blinds or a curtain. If they’re in a spare room, make sure it’s one you can vent easily.
What Are the Best Places to Grow Cannabis In the House?
Here are some of the most common spots for indoor grows.
Many people grow plants in their bathroom. Why not a weed plant?
Pros: You’ll have access to a water source and a vent.
Cons: Those plants could get in your way every time you use the bathroom. It will be hard to hide them from visitors.
2. Your Garage
In a garage, you’ll have room to spread out.
Pros: You can set aside a corner of the garage for your plants or take over the whole thing. You can store lights, potting soil and garden equipment right there with you.
Cons: You must have a good electrical source in your garage. You may have to find another place to park your car.
3. A Closet
A closet provides instant privacy.
Pros: It’s easy to close the closet door when you need to hide your plants.
Cons: A closet is typically a small space that’s hard to move around in. You won’t have a window that you can vent the heat or smells out of.
4. An Outdoor Shed
An outdoor shed gives you space, privacy and a dedicated area for your plants.
Pros: You can store your growing supplies in a concealed space without attracting any undue attention.
Cons: You’ll have to take extra security measures. You should put a lock on the door and cover any windows.
5. The Basement
This allows you to keep your plants nearby but hidden.
Pros: You have room, privacy, and concealment.
Cons: If your basement gets cold or damp, you’ll need good grow lights. You also need a way to control the smell.
6. A Bedroom
If you choose to grow plants in your bedroom, you should probably use a grow tent. Some grow tents come with carbon filters that hide the smell of the plants.
Pros: When people are at your house, you can simply close the door to give your growing operation some privacy.
Cons: You may not want to live with the heat, smell, and dirt of a growing operation in your bedroom.
Every room in your house has advantages and disadvantages when it comes to growing plants. Choose the setup that works for you depending on your location and the number of plants you’re growing.
