    Hey RIU micro growers!

    I've got a new box about 99% completed, seeds should be here this week but I'm in a bit of a quandary about one thing..

    I don't have circulation fans that fit well in this space. It's 2' x 2' x 4' and even the smallest fan looks huge in there. I feel like my only options are computer fans and I have those and, if you can believe this, fan speed controllers to go with them lol.

    I've included pics to help you see what I'm dealing with. Any suggestions are, as always, much appreciated. How to install them is what I'm mostly interested in. Hang or wall mount some way...I don't know. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks!

    What is the better placement of circulation fans in a grow box like this? Could I put them on the bottom angled up toward the plant?

    I just ordered a 4 inch ipower fan/filter combo off of amazon for my armiore. Few more days i should have mine hung in there and can show you how it looks in my box....are you needing stealth?

    I run 2 fans over the canopy and 1 blowing from the base placed near my intake vent.

    I've got a fan filter combo installed. The fan is housed outside the box in it's own box suspended by rubber tarp tie downs. I'm testing that for noise today. Circulation fans is really all I need. I've heard good things about those iPower filters. They have come down in price a lot. I think the phresh filter I have was something like $80 when I bought it. Worth every penny though.. :weed:

    I've got one of those and a king air clip on that are just too big. I'm trying to keep it somewhat clean in there. My last box was a bloody mess inside so I vowed to try and keep it clean. :wall: lol

    Oh ok, i gotcha. I saw a build somewhere that had fan housed in a rubbermaid container on top if the box. Looked pretty cool

    So here's what I came up with. Keeps the fans out of the way, allows me to vary the level of the airflow and adjust them horizontally if I need to. What do you think? :shock:

    Cool idea man. That maneuverability will be helpful as the plants reach that height and to prevent damaging the plant.

    Does that fan produce decent airflow?

    They do even on a lower setting. I have a speed controller connected to them both.
