Best Place to Grow Cannabis in the House?
Let’s look at your options. What places do you have available in your home to grow? This tutorial will help you figure out the best place to grow your cannabis plants indoors. Taking a little time to plan your grow now can make things a lot easier for you down the road!
Here are some the most common places growers put their plants:
- Bedroom (in a grow tent)
- Spare Room
- Spare Bathroom (easy access to water and a drain)
- Cellar or Basement
Now that you’re thinking about the possibilities, let’s look into important factors to help you narrow it down.
1.) Security & Concealment
Even if growing cannabis is legal where you live, security and concealment are still something to consider. If you can help it, you don’t want to attract potential thieves, gain the attention of overzealous law enforcement, or annoy your neighbors. Keeping your grow private is a good idea even though you’re not doing anything wrong.
- Is this location easy to hide?
- Will guests be able to wander in or notice something fishy?
- If light spills out, will it look suspicious?
Total security failure!
2.) Heat & Ventilation
Most grow lights get at least a little hot. Therefore, unless you have a relatively small light or your grow space is naturally cold, you likely will want to find a way to vent out heat.
- Is there a window to vent heat?
- Is there another place I could vent hot humid air safely?
- If I vent directly in the room, would it matter if the temperature went up several degrees while lights are on?
A private window is often the best place to vent heat, but sometimes that’s not an option. I live in a condo with very public windows, so right now I actually vent the heat from my grow lights directly into the room. This raises the temperature by several degrees when the room is closed up, though has much less of an effect on the temperature when the window or door is open. It’s possible to vent heat directly out a window without anyone outside being able to tell, but it takes a bit of DIY (Do It Yourself) creativity.
A window fan pointing out can make a big difference if your grow lights raise the temperature of a room by a few degrees
Think about the places in the house with enough space for plants. Extra space is always nice! I recommend first-time growers start with a 2’x4’x6′ grow tent if possible. That gives you easy access to all your plants and plenty of height. Think about the places in the house that would accommodate that size tent. I have a tent that size in my bedroom, and it sort of looks like a clothes wardrobe at first glance.

- Micro Grows, Stealth Boxes, and Mini Tents (smaller than 2’x4′ or 3’x3′) – yields up to several ounces
- Small Tents and Cabinets (around 2’x4′ or 3’x3′) – yields up to about a pound
- Large Tent – (larger than 3’x3’, but no larger than a 5’x5’) – yields up to about a max of 3 lbs
- Rooms or Extra Large Tents – (larger than 5′ x 5′) – can yield many pounds at a time
As far as height…
- 3-4 feet of height – suitable for a mini grow (and that’s pushing it); can yield up to several ounces in a 2’x2′ space
- 4-5 feet of height – for a small grow, could yield several ounces, possibly up to about a pound with expert care in a 2’x4′ or 3’x3′ space
- 5-7+ feet of height (recommended for beginners) – having 5 or even better 6+ feet of height will make things much easier on you. This is because you usually won’t have to worry as much about your plants getting too tall. You don’t necessarily need all this height, but it’s nice!
If you’re not sure, I highly recommend a 2’x4’x6′ grow tent for beginners. It’s small enough that you have easy access to all your plants but big enough that you don’t need to worry about height and can harvest up to a pound of buds (or even more) if you use it correctly.Best Place to Grow Cannabis in the House?
