If you’re looking to hide your hobby from the nosy neighbors, we can help. With proper pressure and ventilation, you can have a stealth smell proof grow that even hides the most pungent strains during flowering.
Let’s start with the Best Grow Tent Pressure
Every grow tent should have negative pressure. This basically means your tent should have more air going out than coming in, creating a vacuum of sorts. A properly pressured and ventilated tent will have the fabric and doors etc suck in slightly, and be responsive to the touch. You don’t want an insane amount of airflow venting out your main fan, we found on our 6 inch Ipower carbon filter with fan and adjustable knob we set regularly at only 1/3 of the power. Setting as low as possible setting on your carbon filter and main fan will not only save your electricity but also likely life of the fan and filter.
The Carbon filter itself is the main component of smell-proofing your cannabis grow tent. They actually use 1050+ IAV Australia Virgin Charcoal to absorb the pollens, terpenes, and molecules that cause the distinctive scent of bud.
Next Let’s Cover the Grow Tent Airflow
Getting the best grow tent airflow requires a nice setup of fans and vents. Not only do your need a good “scrubber”, a.k.a. carbon filter (like the one mentioned above or others you can easily find on Amazon) with a fan that matches the ducting size (and size of the upper ducting hole of your tent), but you also need airflow via venting towards the bottom of your grow tent. This bottom network of fans and ventilation ducts works best with clip fans on your grow tent poles that circulate air coming in from one of your lower tent ducting outlets.
Extra Precautions to Remove the Smell of Growing Cannabis
We’ve known some extra paranoid or extra cautious growers who use extraordinary precautions with their grow tent smell. First off, we’ve all heard of putting in a circulating odor removing air filter house fan in the tent itself, and/or in the room outside the tent. Also, you may have heard of people using Ona odor removers, which we’ve tried with mixed results.
