And for this you have two options: either do it manually with tarps and tables or buy it. That depends on your pocket or your skills when put to work building your own cabinet interior.
Whatever your decision, once you have your cabinet there are several aspects that need to take into account, and it does not matter if your closet is manual or purchased. We speak of lighting, ventilation and temperature and humidity thereof.
Aspects which will vary depending on the amount of marijuana you want to plant , and the time of cultivation and / or growth of the plant of marijuana. Then we will detail all aspects mentioned so far.

In any case, you take the decision you take, before buying the closet or get to build it, which must have very clear is the number of plants you want to plant, as the size will vary, as is logical, depending on the number of plants. As a rough example of the cabinet could be 120x120x200, if you are a habitual marijuana smoker and you smokes two to three grams per day.
And a little more would explain about closets, unless if it is purchased normally usually come with a reflective inner white or silver. The most recommended is this latter due to the degree of reflectivity featuring plants and with all the benefits that entails.

Conversely, if the lamps are sodium, but 400 watts must be put closer to about 35/40 cm. In any case and whatever the type of lamp power by which you decide, as plants get older, also need to up the lamp, so that the distance remains the same, ie 35 / 40 cm or 50/60 cm of plants.
Another recommendation of lighting is recommended to start with a low consumption lamps and when the plant is in growth phase, ie flowering, lighting should be more powerful. Of course you can also use LED lamps which consume far less and lasts longer, although initial investment is greater than if we bought sodium lamps.
There are growers who do not pay attention, but much of the success of the quality of marijuana, is because the plants have good ventilation. In fact, thanks to good ventilation, not only the quality of the air inside the cabinet is improved, but also allows to control the temperature, humidity and odor inside the cabinet, so that it is not very strong.
A good ventilation system should be composed by an intractor and extractor. The former is responsible for bringing fresh air into the cabinet and the second will remove the hot and stale air. In any case, the latter should always be more powerful than the first, so that the air quality inside the cabinet is optimal.
The ideal temperature for growing marijuana in a closet indoor culture should be between 20 and 28, depending on the time of growth in which the plant is located. In any case, the limits between 17 and 31, from there your crop may be jeopardized.
As the humidity level is concerned, it is recommended that always between 40 and 60%, although at some point in time, could have pulled up 90%, but this can only be a peak point, otherwise, the plant sick.
