First time any tips

All my supplies came in today waiting for the seeds. Any tips would be welcome I am going with LED lights a 4x4 and a 4x8 tent. How should I set it up the tents for a perpetual grow? Help with watering and how and when to feed overview would be awesome. Last but not least I am going with Big Bud.

Since you’re just starting out, can you give us the detailed laundry list of supplies you’re using?


Welcome to the community!

Have you ordered your lights yet? Some are constrained by budget. If you are not, then most of us would recommend HPS, MH, or quality LED lights such as those sold by Horticulture Lighting Group. The majority of the lights advertised for cannabis on Amazon (known as burples) don’t really produce full, dense buds with dank smoke.

I have a 5x5 and a 4x4. I veg my plants in the smaller tent and flower them in the larger tent to keep a perpetual grow going with a harvest every ~10 weeks.

Watering isn’t cut and dried. It depends on the medium you will be growing in. Will you be in soil or coco? Cannabis like wet and dry cycles. I am in soil and I water to runoff every 4 days after the soil has dried out almost completely. I can’t comment on coco.

Underfeeding is better than overfeeding in general. If you are in a quality soil such as Fox Farm, you won’t have to feed nutrients (nutes) until at least 4 weeks from your most recent transplant.

Welcome to the forum. There is a world of information available on this site at:

Apparently Chilled Logic is getting to be very competitive with HLG so that might be another one to look at.
