HOW TO BUILD A IKEA EKET CONNECTED GROW BOX

Welcome to the website guide of the Eket V2 build video guide.
With two separate chambers this build can do continuous supply in a very small package.

This guide is done with a small and a big eket, but you could do it with two large ones to allow longer vegging, in this case you can do the second eket for vegging with just 2 panels instead of 4.

The normal power usage for this build is below 50w total, which means less than $5/month for veg (4) and $3/month in bloom (3).

The new cardboard compression chamber of the blower allows for a quieter build and makes the carbon filter setup much simpler.

(The attachements below are also downloadable throughout the guide)

Now is the time to put a brain in the box!
First purpose of the controller is to setup lighting schedules to simulate sunrise and sunset at the right time, and control your plants' phase.

Because keeping an eye on temperature and humidity is important for optimal growth, the controller sends all the info to the app for on-the-go monitoring.

Initial set up

Done

A good initial setup is: 15% power for the lower panels and 30% at the top.

Then fine tune according to how the plant reacts, if it overstretches add 5-10% more power.

HOW TO INSTALL VENTILATION UNIT IN SMALL EKET

Because plants in veg don't have that characteristic smell yet and more like a green grassy smell; the filter is optional/ can be added later on.

There is only one LED panel in the small eket veg box, which produces very little heat - for colder climates setting the fan at the lowest speed and providing some extra heat will be appreciated by your plant.
