Getting Started


A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks.

“I am interested in getting a breakdown for my first grow. I would liked to get a small tent, led lighting,exuast fan { to eliminate order } start with soil and small this is for medicinal purposes and to cut down my cost. I will purchase feminized white widow. If you could advise me on what to purchase and cost, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.”


The tent size will depend on how many plants your want to grow
I grow 4 plants per tent 4x4x7 tents
Any more it just to crowded
A quick rule of thumb is 50watts of light per square foot
Leds you can go from 35-50 watts and use actual watts drawn not the equivalent watts that they light mfg says fir instance most 300 watt led fixtures will actually draw 130-50 watts
Filter and exhaust fan will also be sized for tent size
My tents are just over 100 cubic feet and I run 100 cfm exhaust fans with carbon filter
That means my Air is exchanged every min
I also run a intake fan at about half the speed of my exhaust and I can turn it up a little if needed
I keep my grow room at 68-70degrees and my tents run at 78 with lights on
I run 800 watts actual in one tent and 650 actual watts in second tent
