Was wondering if I could build something that would fit in my room for wintering a plant indoors or possibly even getting peppers year round. I'm a novice at growing terrestrial plants so I wanted some feedback before I did anything.


I'll be growing a pot of thai chillies and maybe some herbs in the future.

Materials will be 1 inch pvc pipe, emergency blankets, and an HLG 65. Model is to scale. Might cover up another wall so I don't blind myself. Will oscillating fan be necessary for ventilation if I leave the tent open on one side + top?

Maybe this will give you ideas for the ventilation:

Not tall enough, IMO. You'll run into some height problems pretty quickly.

It does seem a little on the short side. I would still recommend a fan whether it's open or not to avoid fungal gnats, mold or any other nasties. Something as simple as a fan can avoid a lot of problems
