Help a bigginer out ๐Ÿ˜… GG

Questions for the pros
Im a beginner & Iโ€™m gonna start growing my first plant soon but Iโ€™m not as educated as most people here lol Im open to all information for the best possible outcome

I purchased a heavy hitters pack and I want to start with just the gorilla glue . I have a room I decided to use and I want to purchase a tent


Ofc Imma empty the room out first .
I want to know everything I need to start if anyone can take the time
I also donโ€™t know what lights I should start with . So I guess my first few questions are about the setup .

Welcome to the community. You actually donโ€™t need a tent if you plan on using that whole closet. You will need a few small fans to circulate air. I say a 6" exhaust. The light will depend on the size of the room. If you can give us that we have people that will guide you in thenright direction

listen to these pros on here. I started with wrong lights, no meters for ppm and ph, too many plants in a 4 x 4 tentโ€ฆthe list goes on. I have right equipment now, but spents a lot of money on wrong stuff. I think they say the right lighting is most important. Happy growing

I was planning to get the tent because thatโ€™s what I saw most people using . I thought it was the best way to go lol
The room is as high as any regular apartment . About 70 inches and about 50 inches from the door to the wall

No your room is perfect man its white high ceiling and you have a door. You will have 2 get something 2 block the light going inside the closet. So lets say you have a 2x4x7

You can get some stuff for the floor because it will get wet. Like a weather proff mat or something. Im guesing theres no outlets in the closet. You will need a 20amp min extension cord 2 set up your light,fan and exhaust

Welcome to the forum. Iโ€™m a newbie my, on first grow now. I wish I knew now what I knew 6 months ago would have saved a lot of cash. I think most people would agree. First thing u need to decide how much space you have to use, that will let u know how many plants u can have.
You will need all this stuff plus much more , NOT SAYING TO BUY THIS but this is the way I went.

If you using your grow closet you can do 5 plants with no tents just need a good light and vent. You can do 3 5 or 7 gallons fabric cloth pots

This is a bad pic, but Iโ€™m new and I bought the 27,27,63 inch kit. Thatโ€™s only enough room for 1 plant so u want to do 4 or 5 at 1 time u donโ€™t have the space, maybe a 4x2 can fit in there then maybe u could to 2 if they stay small.
Example look how my 3, 5 gallons pots take up almost all the space in my tent, and u need to plant in at least 3 or 5 gallons pots thatโ€™s what Iโ€™ve read
