How to build a PC Grow Box
First thing is first you need to get a empty PC to grow in. The one I got is 20″ tall 9″ wide and 20″ depth works pretty good for me. Then if you dont want to go out and buy Mylar and all that kinda shit I used a car windshield reflector in my case, very cheap at walmart and can easily be cut up. As for lights I glued a power strip on the top of the case and plugged the 4 CFL lights into it. Now your done!
This is all the quipment I used with prices.
PC Case (Online, link below) – $43
Hot Glue Gun (Walmart) – $8
Glue Sticks (Walmart) – $3
Car Windshield Reflector (Walmart) – $10
PC Fan’s (Online, link below) – $15
4 CFL Lights (Walmart) – $20
Power Strip (Walmart) – $5
Remote Control Socket (Online, link below) – 15.99
Once you strip it down to nothing it should look like this.
Now its time to start putting reflective material inside. These are the tools I used. (glue gun, car reflect, glue sticks)
After you cut the car reflect up and glue it onto all sides of the case you need to mount the lights. Here 2 pictures showing you where you should put them.
Once you have the lights up you need to get those fans on there. I had to get some metal cutters to make space for mine to fit, but here is where I placed mine.
Hope this guide helped some of you out to build a simple PC Grow Box.
