    So I'm going to be growing a few plants in a small closet, about 3x3 and like 8 feet tall. I'm looking to spend a little under 100 bucks for a setup here, if anyone has any ideas or setups/plans they can share I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    I would just buy a quarter bag, and save up another 100 bucks and buy another quarter bag.. :) Hardware store 6500k cfl's 2700k cfl's a lot of em. some decent soil, good air movement, and an even better exhaust. if your looking to cover smell and keep shit stealth, it's gonna take more than a 100.. but if you don't have to worry about shit, then just make sure u have good intake air coming in, and exhausting somewhere other than the closet. but it's gonna be tough under 100.. hope u can make it work..:leaf:

    Well my budget can be around 200, but I'm not sure about what I can do about the ventilation exhaust, it's an enclosed closet, just a door and a small space and a window/electricity outlet nearby. (outside of the door)

    This one was in a 2x3x4' closet with CFLs costing under $100. Great results. Might be helpful - This is the link.

    Yeah I'd be able to cut a hole, but the way the doors open, I'm having trouble thinking of what I can do for the exhaust.

    Thanks for the input, look's like a pretty decent setup and fairly cheap also, but I still don't know what I can do about the ventilation..

    What are ambient temperatures now? I didn't have any ventilation and it was a small enclosure running in the middle of summer (90+ ambient temps). If you just need air flow get a rotating tower fan. For air exchange a $20 inline duct booster fan - these don't push through ducting very well but you really only need to vent to the immediate room.

    sorry dont have pics but what i did was opened the closet doors taped them opened. then wrapped it in panda film from closet door to closet door making sure no light was going to get in this also adds an extra foot to your room. i threw a zipper on it for a door and i have a window right next to my closet with a cheap window fan in it i ran some cheap ducting to the panda film which i cut a hole in (make sure you seal everything) and thats intake and exhaust.

    panda film $25
    fan $20
    duct tape $5
    ducting $10
    thumb tacks $1
    zipper $12
