I needed somewhere to rant/get some advice, and I thought this might be the right place. So in my intro post I said I was going to be busting out my 4x4 and hunting through seeds proper. Well the universe, in its infinite wisdom, has thrown a bit of a curve ball. I live in a 2 bed with my gf and we recently decided to let our friend who is in a shitty situation move in. It hasn't happened yet but she will be moving in the start of April. She's a huge stoner so there's no worry about smells, though I still won't tell her what's going on. My issue is that now our guest room/my garden space is no longer going to be available. Initially I wanted to set up the 4x4 along with small tent I bought off of Amazon years ago. Seedling start/veg in small tent, flower in large tent, but now that's null. We have a large room and theoretically I can set up my tent still but I have two (wonderful) cat children and they are very curious. I don't really want to be constantly awoken every night to them jacking around trying to get into my tent, neither do I want the tents plastered in their hair. So the only alternative is to setup in our decently sized closet attached to our room. It's not big enough for the 4x4 so I'm stuck trying to figure out what to do. I don't know the exact dimensions of the small tent but its not big enough to fit my 4 inch fan or filter. I just bought the 4x4 not long ago and I dont really want to drop more money on ANOTHER tent simply to fill this specific space. Shit, I might have to. We will have all the clothes in the closet still and if I leave plants outside of a tent everything is going to reek.

The other side of this is that now im looking at popping my fems only. There's nothing wrong with that as I have collected some interesting fems that I want to run and look at (cannalope haze, ihg original slurricane, blotto ogk, legend og, etc.) but man does that throw a wrench in things. I don't want to pop 3 seeds, 3 different females, I want to pop packs worth, look through, smoke the phenos, pop another pack, wash rinse repeat. I'm not pissed at the universe, maybe its working in conjunction with the plant trying to save my ass saying "hey dude take it easy for a second just pop a few but it will be okay" or something. There's minimums in this state but in the words of the great Mrbobhemphill, "Can't stop, won't stop. It's what the fuck I do."

Anyway, thanks for reading along. Please give me some ideas on what to do with my closet space haha.

Well that's where the saying "No good deed goes unpunished" come from I guess.
I know it'd mean buying another tent or two, but the ones I want are 2'x3'x6'. Two of them for dedicated chucking only. Lol.
Only found a few places that make em.
Back to back it'd be 4x3, or side by side a 2x6, and still let you run a decent amount.
There were also some nice 2x4s with a 2x3 flower area, and a separate 1x2 veg spot. 6 ft tall.

I read this as it doesn't fit inside the tent. You could put it on the outside of the tent. (barring you have room in your closet.) Just stand the filter next to the tent, place the fan on top of your carbon filter, directly into it, and then run the ducting to the exhaust port of your tent. The fan pulls, creating negative pressure in your tent.

Solution: Walk new roomie into your bedroom...point @ "decent sized closet" and say...."Welcome to your new home". :ROFLMAO:

Or......just tell her what's up/what yer plans >were<.....and then see if she's cool sleeping with a new tent in her room...

That's what I have thought too. Just chaps me that I just dropped nearly $400 on my gorilla tent. I could do some searching around and see if I can find two tents for a decent price. 🤷‍♂️

Correct, it does not. But that's an excellent idea. Thank you for putting that in my mind. There's so much running around in my head that I forget to think logically.

Hahaha that's true. Just let her know that I can provide the smoke if she can provide the apathy!

My gf and I have been talking and she said she's okay with me setting up the 4x4 in our room next to our bed. Talk about love. I guess I have to figure out if I want to do that or the closet. :unsure:

Heehee....I exaggerated a bit there.......but the new roomie should (hopefully) shoulder a bit of the burden given she's walking into >your< world and will definitely be impacting it in a big way. If she smokes and can be trusted.....and face it...if she lives there she will know you are growing unless she's as dumb as a rock....yer just gonna have to let her in on it....AND make sure she realizes it's no game/everybody gonna be screwed if the loose lips are about.

good luck. i'm sure you will figure something out.

If she is going to let you setup the 4x4 in the bedroom, get a small tent that fits the closet or just use the closet for seed starts/clones and early veg. Flower in the larger tent.

Nah, that's 100% real. I sure as shit don't want anyone else in my world knowing about what's going on but since the guest room is next to ours it's going to be very difficult trying to act like nothing is going on. I'm still wondering about it and whether or not we should have a serious sit down talk.

That's where my mind is going. I can have my smaller tent in the closet with my cob light for seedling/veg and move over to the 4x4 for flower in the bedroom. Now I'm just figuring out the lighting situation in the bedroom (light leak). I also just really don't want my kitties fucking with anything.

Do you plan to run hydro? If so I suggest putting the tent in a "pond" in case of leaks and whatnot. We have a 5x5 right next to our bed but it's all contained in a wood frame we built with a pond liner. It has saved our ass so many times, cheap insurance.

That's genius. Unfortunately I am a soil hound. Love me dirt and compost teas.

My take on the roommate thing, is fuck no. I would never show them or even admit it to be true and keep them out of my room. If you mind your p's and q's its not that hard to keep a small grow under cover.

I thought about the light leaks too, that will be a bit of a challenge, but I am sure you can come up with something that will work. Room dividers, curtains, towels, etc.. it definitely needs to be addressed though.

Also, try diverting kitty attention by rubbing catnip on other areas like a cat post. Shit grow some of your own catnip like @Uncle Rom does. I'm somewhat considering running some catnip in a mini F&D lol
Not a shabby idea. The only draw back being two crazy hyper kids running around in the middle of the night after they get a whiff of the good good haha. Definitely an idea. I grow them cat grass and they go crazy for it. I've thought about getting some cat nip going as well. Hmmm there's also a natural spray we have used to deter them from clawing furniture, I could spray the corners of the tents. Usually only lasts a few weeks though. My only other kitty concern is them jumping on top of it. There won't be anyway for them to get in, but still don't like the idea of them messing around up there.

That's my gut feeling dude. I really really dont want to say anything but what am i going to do when I need to defoliate in flower, or when i'm harvesting in between drying? Those little moments of the tent being open are what get me. I plan on upgrading my window blinds as well as a thicker blackout curtain.

I feel you man. Tough spot, but like you, I'd find a way. Probably have to work around their schedule some to do those things while they are not around. Hopefully the roommate thing is temporary and wont last long anyway. I'd still never admit it or show them. Fwiw, I dry in the same space that I flower in, because of the smell. And used panda film to cover the window. ✌

Haha so many variables. She's cool so I am very hopeful that I am overthinking everything (as I tend to do) and it will all be gravy. I love the film idea, however, our bedroom window faces the street so it might look just a little sketchy for the window to be too covered up. Reminds me though, we were looking for a home to buy not long ago and were walking through one and when we got upstairs one of the rooms had a giant plank of wood drilled into the wall completely covering the window lmao. My gf and I looked at each other like, "either they were getting down in there or they were holding people captive..." couldn't figure out which it was... :ROFLMAO:

I am following along reading this post @Budwulf but the part that i do not understand is the light leaks from the new 4x4 tent. Is the GG4x4 tent not that light tight? I am not that familiar with tents so i am just wondering.
