Setting up an indoor grow room is a great way of nurturing plants otherwise unable to survive in your region's natural climate.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Buy sheets of mass-loaded vinyl and lay them over the floor of your grow room. Lay thick carpet on top. This will prevent sound coming up through the floorboards.

  2. 2

    Double glaze any windows in your grow room. This has the dual benefit of blocking external sound, as well as increasing the humidity.

  3. 3

    Cover any windows with soundproofing foam, such as Auralex. Again, this prevents any external noise entering your grow room and also minimises the light entering.

  4. 4

    Buy a silencer for your fan. These fan attachments come in various sizes (typically 6-, 8-, 10- and 12.5-inch sizes), so you are likely to find one suitable for your make of fan.
