Hi cheeya and welcome to :420: :welcome:

Looks like a pretty complete setup you have going there. What exactly did you need to know about ventilation?

FYI Grow Room and FAQs are both great places to post grow related questions and you may find someone else has already asked/answered them.

All I can tell you about ventilation is that I'm not in a stealth situation but do have hepa filter, carbon scrubber, etc and you can still smell it when you walk into my house which is OK by me but probably not for someone in your situation. That being said, I don't know what you need to do to mask the smell for stealth but it's probably going to entail quite a bit of effort. Hopefully some other stealth folks can provide input. I have heard of people using the little can air fresheners from WM and ONA Gel (Careful not to use anywhere in or near grow room or grow room intake!!!!!) but don't have personal experience with them other than to say the little cans work great for my car :) :peace:

I just need to know how to set up the ventilation system... where and how exactly do I put the fan (inside or outside), the ducting and the charcoal filter? Do I pressurize? I will check out the grow room and FAQ areas Many thanks!
