Setting up an indoor grow room is a great way of nurturing plants otherwise unable to survive in your region's natural climate. While temperature and lighting are obvious concerns for an indoor grow room, so too is the sound level. Sound waves have a detrimental effect on the growth of certain indoor plants. Implementing some of the steps listed below is certainly advisable, but whether you choose to implement all of them depends on your budget and level of concern about sound waves in your grow room.

Things you need
- Fan silencer
- Double glazing
- Mass-loaded vinyl
- Thick carpet
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.
Double glaze any windows in your grow room. This has the dual benefit of blocking external sound, as well as increasing the humidity.
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.
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.
