Many times we are forced to grow marijuana in crop cabinets to avoid talk and not be the object of all eyes. Working indoors requires a series of knowledge so that the result is as expected.
First of all, we should know that the size of the crop cabinets of marijuana indoor will depend on the amount of grass we want to produce. In addition, we must take into account the space we have to install the closet.
Calculating consumption is quite easy. Everyone smokes what they need. The average consumption of a person is between one or two grams of cannabis per day. This is about 30-60 grams per month.
Cultivate in crop cabinets It will provide us with crops every three months. Therefore, if we want about 60 grams of grass each month, we will need 120 grams of crops.
If we do not make mistakes when cultivating, we can obtain a production of up to 200 grams in a 1 square meter cabinet with a 400 watt high pressure partner lamp.
Bulb power for indoor growing
Depending on the light and space, we will obtain larger or smaller crops:
- With a high pressure sodium lamp (HPS) of 250 w, we will have an average production of 150 grams.
- With a 400w HPS lamp, we can get about 300 grams.
- If we use a 600w HPS bulb we will have crops of up to 500 grams.
Types of indoor growing cabinets
Once the type of bulb is chosen, the next step is to know what closet type we need:
- The 250w lamp is perfect for culture cabinets of 1m x 0.5mx 2m.
- The 400w bulb will be used in cabinets of 1m x 1m x 2.5m.
- The 600w bulb will be used for spaces of 1,2m x 1.2mx 2m.
When growing indoors, we must pay attention to humidity, temperature and ventilation. Any mistake in one of these factors can mean the loss of all our work.
It is important that plants do not get sick. To do this, we will keep the air fresh inside the closet. How do we do it? Well, installing a good system of ventilation.
Cultivation cabinets must have a circulation fan that moves the air and two extractors, one inlet and one outlet.

Once we have all this ready, it is time to germinate.
It is very important to know what variety to choose. If you do not have much practice in cultivation, our advice is to opt for easy-to-grow varieties, such as Critical + or Skunk 1 from Sensi Seeds.
Normally about nine floors fit for every square meter of the closet. Everything will depend on the variety we choose and how robust the plant can be.
In short, these are the steps you must follow to install the crop cabinets in conditions and that your harvest is profitable.
