    I live in a medium sized apartment with 2 bathrooms one of which we do not use. I'm wondering if this unused bathroom would be a good growing room? There is a under the sink cabinet that is 78.74 cm wide and 60.96 cm tall that I thought would be good to start the plants in. Once they begin to grow, I was thinking of putting them in the shower with mylar all around to reflect the light. I have been reading all of the newbie growing threads and instructions and I haven't seen anyone else who has used a shower as a grow room...I was just wondering if it's a bad idea.

    Bad idea?! Surely not! I like your style actually... mother/clones under the sink, vegging / flowering girls in the bathtub. Why not?!

    Ive thought about it and seen it. It works great.

    Good luck broseph!

    Quite a few people have/do grow in their spare bathrooms.

    With them growing in the shower you have sufficient drainage and watering them won't be a problem.
    Make sure you can set up a decent form of odour control too.

    I'd vote against the mylar.

    Go with panda film as it's washable and would work excellent in that environment. i.e. water splashes won't cause slight smudging on the panda film, like it tends to with mylar.

    What you could do is panda film the entire shower, leave the door open and use one of those long sandwich bag style zipper things so you can gain entrance to it. I can't for the life of me remember what they are called. As long as your room is airtight with a decent intake/out take you'll be good to go.

    Hope this makes sense/helps.

    I have an air purifier which works really well for cigarette smoke, would this be sufficient for odor control? I would also keep the bathroom door closed at all times. I'm planning on planting 1 plant at first, then up to 6 after I get the hang of it.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Sounds like a great idea man how big is the bath room any pics?? you have water and a drain in there already plus electric just need clean and i would not use mylar it sucks compared to this stuff called panda pad hahaha somthing like that does the same thing just alot easier to use check into that.....normaly the bathrooms have a vent fan with light or somthing does the bath have one good for venting your room......might want to build another cabinet for clones and mother then have the other cabient for fresh cut clones in a dome and able to germ seeds in there i dont know just trying to think of everything for ya

    I was going to buy feminized seeds for my first round.

    Thanks for the advice, I never thought of using the built in exaust fan for ventilation. When should I clone my plants? How many times can I harvest one plant?

    harvest i believe you should only harvest once from one plant once its in flowering ...... but you can have a mother and take clones from her then put them into flowering after they get big enough and have roots......you should look into medical card then look in your area for clones that would move you along quicker...were you from?.....just heard of a place in LA that gives you a free clone for your first visit now thats bad ass ;-)

    MarriageUwanna,

    buy feminized seeds .. Grow two for your first time .. It will be good for your learning experience.

    Veg both of them until they get a certain height. Which ever one is taller, lankiest, and not as pretty, flower it.

    Keep the other plant for veg and keep vegging it. At this point you can take cuttings from the mother plant and make clones. Then you can get rid of the amount of time it takes for seeds and you have clones already ready for veg..

    Catch my drift? Just a thought.

    Excellent, thanks for the tip!

    I live in a state where medicinal marijuana is legal but there are no dispensaries and no information on how to find a doctor to prescribe it for you. It's completely retarded. I've always had terrible anxiety and panic attacks and weed is the only thing that's ever helped me (and I've been on LOTS of meds in my lifetime).

    i am over in cali ..... here is a web site look up your state and location then it will give you a list of the doctors around you that you can go to and get your card....once you get that you can skip the germing the seeds and veg the clones for couple weeks to a month then flower for 60 - 90 days and bam nugs if every thing goes good......but bterz was right its a learning experiance if you have never done it before..... you can do that this grow and have the card to help you get medication ;-) and then clones for your next grow......once you get your card i can throw you some web sites of were the clinics are at......but man gotta get some pics of this bath room pics makes every one feel like there building the room with you.
