Looking at starting to cultivate over the summer for personal use/gifting to a few family members. Quantity is less important than quality and I plan on running approx. 4 autoflowers at a time. Plan on initially starting with soil, and if I enjoy the hobby, investing further in hydro if I feel the returns/quality warrant the investment. Seeking advice/feedback on planned first set-up. Will be growing in relatively cool, large basement. Looking at:
4x4 Gorilla tent
2x HLG 350R LED (prefer to buy HLG based on reviews and the 350R based on reduced heat compared to RSpec models, other suggestions are welcome)
AC infinity inline fans/carbon filters
3 or 5 gal fabric pots
FF Ocean Forest Soil (open to other recommendations)
FF nutes (open to suggestions)
ILGM Sweet Mix seed pack
Will also purchase other equipment such as PH pen, humidifier/dehumidifier (based on need in grow space once I set up) timers, temp/humidity readers etc.
I’ve read enough to know that any successful grow has more to do with experience than the quality of the equipment, but I want to at least do what I can to put my inexperienced ass in the drivers seat of my first grow. Any suggestions on other items/replacements for what I have suggested are welcome.
Cheers and thanks for the feedback!
