Hello, I have been searching for answers and I have found few. I am looking to start an outdoor crop with 2-4 medium to large plants. Biggest and only problem is I am 15m away from 4 different neighbors (track homes) but backyards do have a 6ft brick privacy wall. I am in a legal state but I dont want to bother my neighbors and rippers of course. I have a brand new 6x8x6ft greenhouse. My plan is to dig the greenhouse down 18-24" with a concrete slab so that it only sits about 4ft tall. I plan on adding a 6-8inch ultra silent carbon scrubber and inline fan with muffler and silencers and all that, with a small ozone generator running in the exhaust duct. I was going to seal the roof panels to ensure all air being extracted was odiferous air from plants as well as ensure a proper negative pressure, it would only be used for 1 photo run and 1 auto run a year. I would use fruity/low odor strains, our humidity is almost nothing so mold and rot would not likely be issues i hope. I am trying to find possible issues. Could this setup keep 2-3 low odor monsters a secret? Any tips or suggestions is so appreciated. Thank you!

Aint nobody know shit around here
Dannydiesel you are looking at a few things you are going to have to provide for your greenhouse.
Consider a slab and retaining walls going up to 6" above the ground, going to be a lot of DIY work or about 5 to 10k if you have a contractor do it. Secondly, not such a good idea in the rain. Going to also need a sump and a automatic sump pump. Considering the cost of these 2 components of your idea you might need to consider another option. Growing 2 -4 plants in this set up is not going to product enough to offset the cost in a timely fashion.

I of course would do all this work. It only rains maybe 30 days a year here. And maybe 15 minutes at a time. Pouring a small slab and adding a sump isn't a 10k job. More like $700 at the most. Everything including fans and ozone is less than $1750. And how is my loss not recuperated after the first half of the first harvest? Do you think this setup would eliminate 90% or more of odor?

How am I supposed to shoot someone from work? Use your head dude ffs, some of us ain't on welfare we ain't got time to watch the plants grow all day
You sure speak like you’re on welfare. If you’re asking for input why have rebuttals for everything?! Good luck brotha. Happy grows.

I can't think of any reason why enough filters won't do the trick. Just make sure the greenhouse is slightly lower than the top of the dirt. Maybe 3-4 inches. And have strong enough exhaust fans to make a vacuum so the only air getting OUT is filtered air.

Off the main subject tho The concrete in my opinion isn't a good idea. It sounds like a solid idea but it could be a waste of money. If it's dry out there then compact the dirt footing instead. Bugs will burrow and hide all over the concrete. It'll take forever to dry down in a hole. And it's going to be impossible to keep the dirt out of the wet concrete when you're pouring it and skreeding it flat, could cause it to crack.

low odour variety is a good start.

maybe could grow other fragrant plants in that greenhouse - helps with camoflauge as well.

If you are worried about smell and neighbors why the must to run it outside? Specially when only talking about 2-4 plants. You basically listed all the reasons to not grow in a greenhouse at your spot.

Thank you brother. You are pretty much the only person to give any decent advice. These forums are fill of people who want to leave a single comment about "well you need this" no shit bro. Thank you again

The problem with carbon filters effectiveness and greenhouses is humidity spikes. Your location and the enviro is going to have a lot to do with it even being a viable option. There isn't a 1 size fits all answer to this. If you have the right temp ranges you can make it work. If you have lots of rain or big temp swings your greenhouse is going to end up stinking no matter what filters you run within reason unless you can get away with not having to move a lot of air. Have you grown anything in a greenhouse in the past or in that climate? If not local advice is going to be the best advice. If you are in a legal state most likely there are quite a few people running greenhouses on small and large scales. Someones advice from Texas is going to be on a different spectrum then someone say in Washington.

It's the same thing people deal with in hot and humid climates when they put carbon filters up in attics.

If you change your tune you might actually get more help in the future if you actually want it.

I really think dropping your greenhouse down is a waste of time.

Can't you use some sort of distorted plastic/glass or what ever to help hide what your growing?

I knew a few people who would hang red Christmas ornaments on their plants to make it look like tomatoes from afar.
