Top 9 Grow Cabinets And Grow Boxes

Take a look at my top picks for the best grow boxes, and see which cabinet works the best for you.

My #1 Rated

This could be the grow box for people who are looking to grow a sativa—the taller of the cannabis strains—since this box is 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide.

As its name suggests, this grow box is more like a grow closet. Disguised as a normal piece of furniture, the SuperFlower is one heavy-duty machine.

It’s lockable and fireproof construction reminds me of a bank vault that can fit 16 plants.

This features both a top drip and deep water hydration systems, and its base is lower to the ground, allowing you to grow taller plants.

It uses KIND K3 L450 LED lights on an adjustable hanging system to give the plants the closest tan.

Also, all the components, except for seeds, come with the cabinet, which the manufacturer claims is ready to use in under 90 minutes of setup.

Pros
  • Large size allows you to grow more.
  • Comes with all seedling starters, nutrients and grow rocks.
  • Activated carbon filter for scent.
Cons
  • Scent is generally contained with a closed the cabinet but tends to linger after opening.

My #2 Rated

This sturdy model comes in two sizes. The 27”x16”x11” grow box accommodates up to six small plants (clones) and the 34″x16.5″x11″ grow box is big enough for two plants.

It’s great for beginners, as it features a user manual that anybody can understand.

Comes fully assembled too, so there’s no need to waste time trying to set everything up.

It features improved LED lights, better luminosity to help with your plant yield, and more space for your plants inside.

The box is made out of high-quality wood, so it’s reliably built. And after testing, the people at Cash Crop saw a huge improvement over the 5.0 in the quality of their yield.

Pros
  • No assembly required.
  • High-quality box.
  • Improved growing environment.
  • Carbon filter system to eliminate odors.
Cons

  • Some users reported quality not as expected.

My #3 Rated

This beautiful machine looks like it’s from the future, and it grows like it, too. A programmable box, such as this one, is of benefit to any grower.

I’d suggest that the Grobo premium grow box is the right one for someone who who has a brown thumb. 

Its most notable feature is the programmable grow ‘recipes.’ 

Humidity, airflow, light and heat are controlled, allowing you to track through an app-based controller. 

Dual duty fans allow you to grow, harvest, and dry all in one grow cabinet.

Also, kids and pets are kept away with a heavy-duty steel lock. 

Pros
  • Scent-reducing carbon filter.
  • Steel lock.
  • App control.
  • Double dual fan.
  • Sleek and futuristic aesthetic design.
Cons
  • Higher prices can deter some people from investing.
  • Light will be seen by visitors.

My #4 Rated

The Deluxe is the last on my list, but definitely the last in style. 

This is another monster closet-sized grow cabinet, with room for 16 plants. Now I would do a lot less than that so I could let them get bushy, but that’s me. 

It features 12 band “Perfect Spectrum” LED lights, which are amazing for heat reduction. 

It also includes some plant supplements that will make have enough nutrients to grow big and flower.

Unfortunately, it is on the pricey side, but you do get what you pay for.

Aside from being a bit of a looker, it comes with a ton of features, including a 12 spectrum proprietary timed light, a digital temperature, humidity, and moisture meter, and powerful air circulation fans.

It’s small and super light (25×25″ and 54″ tall) and has enough space for smaller yields. It would be perfect if it wasn’t for the premium price and the fact that it doesn’t come ready-assembled.

Pros
  • Beautifully designed.

As this grow box is bigger, it has multiple LEDs to keep marijuana happy and healthy. The reflective white interior will help to reflect the light and maximize its reach.

This smart grow box is the most expensive on the market, but it is a fancy piece of kit. It can be used with an app on your phone, so you can automate and control the growing process from the comfort of your armchair!

It’s one of the biggest on the market too, being almost human-sized, so space shouldn’t be an issue.

At a decent size of 62” x 27” x 25” it’s not as compact as some, though it can easily be fitted into a closet if privacy is an issue for you.

The unit comes with everything needed for optimal growing conditions, including LED lighting, water sensing, an air control/ nutrient system, alongside a carbon filter, HD camera, and toolbox.

The Hellogrower comes in 40″ and 30″ specifications with LED lights that vary between 150 and 300 watts depending on the model you buy.

It’s certainly sturdy enough as this bad boy has a strong steel construction, and it’s lockable too.

Why Should I Get A Grow Cabinet For Growing Cannabis?

If you’re like me and have gone through several grow setups you already know how easily grow cabinets bring attention to themselves.

  • Avoid light leakage, that can make it look like it’s Christmas in your basement or garage at 2 AM.
  • Mute grow tent fan noise, that create constant and annoying sounds.
  • Keep flowering odors to a minimum, as these can easily flood your house or get into neighbors backyards.
  • Let’s not forget the these grow boxes are very stealthy if you don’t have special room to hide it in.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Grow Cabinets?

Modern-day features make this boxes much more sophisticated than when I tried to line the closet with tin foil in my parents’ house. And whether you’re a seasoned grower or a new timer, everyone can enjoy the technology of a stealth grow box.

Grow Safely

Stealth grow box brands aim to keep you safe—the equipment need to be tough as they run lots of electricity.

You want a good machine available to keep electrical shorts and shocks from happening.

But what about a different kind of safety? What about door locks?

Door locks are great on stealth grow boxes for a couple of reasons:

Stopping Children From Finding Or Messing With Your Grow

There’s no doubt small children are curious by default, and you can bet they will eventually want to see what’s inside the box. This means they could get hurt by the heat of the bulbs or mess with your plants and cause serious damage.

A Grow Cabinet Keeps Pets Away

You also wouldn’t want pets to get inside. Cats and dogs are known for eating cannabis leaves[1], and if they happen to knock over one or more of your plants there could result in growth complications.

Growing Privately

This grow boxes come with features in case there are any issues with those who you don’t know want to know you’re growing. Your neighbors won’t notice anything at all, and if your mother in-law comes by she will never suspect what’s inside.

A Grow Box Offers Limited But Optimized Space

Most grow boxes are pretty small, as they come pre-assembled with the most optimized use of space.

Grow cabinets are perfect if you have limited space as you’ll still be able to get an impressive yield out of it. There are also very small grow tents for a more affordable price.

Best Boxes Hide Lights And The Smell of Marijuana

If this is your first grow, you can’t imagine how much bud stink when it’s flowering. If you don’t do something about it, the smell will permeate.

The best stealth grow box will have carbon filters for the fan and often have insulating.

Besides odor control, the more airtight a box is, the better you can control humidity and light leak.

Heat And Noise Insulation

With your crop needing warm temperatures, and fans making constant noise, it can be a huge give away.

This is why grow cabinets are specially created and insulated to output as low heat and noise as possible.

While also keeping your plants in a comfortable climate. You don’t want to burn your babies!

Some grow cabinets even have air-conditioning system as well as control the emission of CO2.

What To Look For In The Best Grow Box?

While the best grow box is a personal call, you need to think about what features most important for you. Here’s what you should consider:

Price

Look, I get it. Deciding to grow your own bud can be a big financial investment. Buying a ready-made cabinet seems like a huge step up over a cheap grow box made with tinfoil in your closet.

You may balk at the price tag of some of them but think about the extras. Many cabinets include everything you need to get started—or at least a large percentage of it. Pots, fertilizer, and even soil can come with your planter.

Size Of The Grow Box

Think about your growing space. Do you have a whole room to dedicate to your new crop or a countertop?

Luckily, there’s a myriad of options available. If you’ve got a ton of space, many models on this list are between 5 and 6 feet tall. Cannabis grows up, up and up if you let it—so a tall cabinet can give your more yield per plant.

Lights: LED, HID and Fluorescent

The lighting system allows for control of light cycles inside your cabinet to replace the natural light of the sun.

There’s various light options.

  • LED are more expensive to buy but will keep your bills low. Also will get you a better yield.
  • Fluorescent, CFL and T5 lights, are cheap and will also keep bills down.
  • HID and metal halide lights will give great crops but are not budget friendly in the long term.

I recommend LED but that’s a personal preference. Make sure your grow box comes with the ones you prefer.

Utility Bills

Generally, the more expensive the growing equipment the higher quality it is. Higher quality is usually more efficient, which means lower electricity bills.

Final Thoughts

If you’re setting up your private stash, it’s important to get the best grow cabinet for sale. So look no further than the Cash Crop 6.0 LED Hydroponic Grow Box.

Ol’ Memaw can fit four plants in the grow box, and since it’s not too tall and rather plain, it can disguise anywhere you want to put it.
