Hey fellow growers I really would like to have a discussion on how to prevent fires from starting in your grow area. I built a 4X8 grow area without even thinking about the materials that I used could catch on fire. Here about 1 month ago I had a bulb explode on me and I would have never thought that the damage of what one bulb could really do. When I went into my grow space the hot glass left burnt marks all over my floor and melted some of my plastic, I used for walls to save money. I ended up buying a sheet of drywall and tin which I covered my floor but still need to redo my sides this is what I made for a grow space but now I have to rethink on how to make it much safer. My lights are turned off because I am waiting for warmer weather, so I do not have to run a heater. If the more experienced growers can throw in and tell some of the newer growers how to make a DIY grow room safe, I think everyone would appreciate the help. I know that people have lost almost everything because of this if you read some of the other forums. I read on another forum that a very experienced grower had a basement that he had a grow in, and a bulb blew out and he almost lost his house. I will show my Cheap DIY grow room as it was at first. But as far as safety I would not do this now that I have seen what could happen. Doing this cheaper can cost you much more in the long run. I will use my cheap grow area as an example on what not to do as far as safety. I do keep a smoke detector next to it and a full-size fire extinguisher in the garage. I built this trying to keep it light so I could open the garage door in summer and roll it outside. I did not even think about the safety aspect which is my bad.
