I’ve spent my time on this forum reading through other people’s grow journals and WOW I am impressed with all the posts. I have decided to journal my grow as I do want to become a good indoor grower. Ha, I want the glory of saying I can grow my own tasty buds.
For my grow, I will be using a 3rd bedroom that is considered my space in the house. The plan is to buy everything around the beginning of February 2018. I live in New England to give everyone an idea of the outdoor temperatures I will be experiencing during my indoor soil grow.
I will start with the items I plan on buying after looking at some grow tent lists from other grow journals. On my first go, I will try 4 plants most likely autoflowers(i can really use advice on what seeds to buy for my space). Will take any advice on my purchase list below. I will most likely buy another light in the future. I am paying a little more for items I feel have more value but will take advice if i’m wasting loot on things.

Total a little under $1800, I am hoping to find some better deals and maybe advice on things that might not be right for my intended grow. Not sure if the pots are too large for autoflower. I will probably will need to add a heater, ac unit and humidifier. I was thinking about seeing what the conditions are in the tent prior to buying those items.
Anyhoo, that is my setup after doing my reading and watching of videos. I have about a week before purchase if anyone sees me heading towards a clift.
Now, I want seeds that will be good for my space and type of light. I will be actively reading any posts and asking questions, so don’t hesitate to comment.
