General

Why should I choose BC Northern Lights grow boxes over other options?

Where do we begin? For starters, we’re the OGs – Original Growers. We’ve been building grow boxes for nearly two decades and have designed and engineered our grow systems to make growing, easier. We also give you unparalleled access to real growers who are there to support you and ensure your success.

Where are your grow boxes manufactured?

All of our grow boxes are manufactured in British Columbia, Canada.

What are your grow boxes made out of? Why does it matter?

All of our grow boxes are made from powder coated medical grade aluminium. Using powder coated aluminum allows us to manufacture a lightweight and durable grow system that’s easier to clean and maneuver than larger steel systems.

Are your grow boxes easy to use?

Yes! We’ve designed these boxes from the ground up to make your life simple. Plus, we offer personalized support from Grow Specialists 7 days a week.

How safe are your grow boxes?

Very. We’ve been building these boxes for almost two decades and never had any electrical issues or fires. All of our units are CSA Certified.

How many plants can I grow?

Our grow boxes can grow 4 to 18 plants at a time, while our grow room combinations can grow over 1,000. Call us and we’ll customize a grow setup that fits your needs.

What sort of yields can I expect?

Our grow boxes can yield anywhere from 0.5 to 2 lb. per cycle, while our grow room combinations can produce 7.5 to over 300 lb. per year.

Will my grow box smell?

No. Our grow boxes are tight when it comes to scent control because they’ve got built-in carbon filtration.

Do your grow boxes come with locks?

Yes. All of our grow boxes come with industrial strength locks to secure your crops.

How much power do your grow boxes use?

This depends on your location and provider but in general our grow boxes aren’t going to leave you with massive electrical bills. Total kilowatt hours (kWh) per month generally range from 182.9 kWh to 352.8 kWh per month.

Do your grow boxes require any external plumbing?

No. There’s no need for a water line or drain line with our grow boxes.

Do I need a backup generator for my grow box?

No. There’s no need for a backup generator – unless you happen to live in an area that experiences frequent power outages.

Do grow boxes produce a lot of heat?

Our grow boxes produce heat that is then vented back into the room. You can also choose to vent this heat elsewhere. Our grow box interiors run 3 to 4 degrees warmer than the room they’re set up in. With our LED lighting upgrade, you can reduce this heat by about half.

Should I be concerned about mould or water damage? 

No. By using medical grade power coated aluminum, our grow boxes allow for maximum reflectivity and easy cleaning. Systems that have reflective material glued on often have troubles with mould, humidity and pathogens stuck in behind the reflective materials.


Orders & returns

How much will my grow box cost?

Pricing can vary widely depending on your specific grow setup. Our grow boxes start at $1995, while commercial grow room combinations can range from $6,250 to over $150,000. Call us and we’ll customize a grow setup that fits your needs and budget.

Do I need all of the upgrades?

No, you can get amazing results with our basic grow box packages. That being said, if you have the extra funds our upgrades can help you maximize your returns.

Do I need to buy nutrients?

All of our grow systems come with nutrients for at least 3 harvests. You can upgrade your nutrients or purchase more from us when you need them.

When will my grow system arrive once I order it?

We ship out orders every 2 weeks. Once shipped, it typically takes 5 to 7 business days for your grow system to arrive.

What happens if something breaks?

Most of our grow box components are plug and play, so if anything breaks we simply send you the required part and show you how to change it out.

What’s your return policy?

We accept returns on unused products. These are subject to a 20% restocking fee once shipped. Please take a look at our Refund and Return Policy.
