VA just legalized growing up to 4 plants. I had a grow operation before, but needless to say, I was young, broke, and trying to hide things. Now I can do a grow without the extra hassle, I’m pricing things and wondering is it really going to matter?
I already got my HLG 600 R spec light… Too late to hear that speech now lol… I’m growing non autos, 24, then 12/12 cycle.
Next up is the tent… Do I really need to spend $350 on a Gorilla 4x4 when Spider and Argo have them for $200… Or Amazon has them for $99… Am I going to see 150-200 dollars of improvement?
My main issue is the pots. “Do the Air-Pots” they said… “With the coco coir peat”… Well the extra large Air Pots are $80 for TWO… 10 gallons (they say use double what you’d use in soil)… Is $400-500 in pots and soil REALLY going to make a difference vs. some cheap fabric bags and $20 bag of regular soil?
The same could be said for all of it… fans, carbon filter, ducting… There’s always a cheap version, a bunch of mid range, and a high class version. What parts of the grow do you save money on… And which parts would you NEVER save money on?
