Hey all this seems like a really cool place, the website and the forum, I’ve noticed a lot of guides, and I will read some of them and try to educate myself in the matter. but for the meantime, I just want to get started, I’m pretty excited to see some plants growing
So what I did is, I got 10 grandaddy purp seeds from here, I plan to start off with these indicas.
I had a friend with vegetable garden experience guide me through shopping for some things, help me a little… he’s told me about the types of lights used for indoor growing. The lights being T5, CFL, or HPS… HPS is apparently too hot, CFL and T5 might be ok, but… he found LED lights and suggested me to try them, cause they use low watts (even though the one i’m looking at says 1200w apparently), generate enough light, and aren’t too hot which is a good thing according to him. So… I may be ordering my selected light tomorrow, and I already have one in mind.
Here’s some of the equipment I ordered…
This is for the seeds, i’ll wait until they bloom a little… also using these two fertilizer and warm mat…
and after it sprouts, I’ll take it and,… I don’t know if I should get smaller pots, but I already ordered these and thought i’d put them straight into the 15 gallons, I heard these are recommended for pot growing.
And I’ll also use this watering can to water them when they’re in their little cubes and when they’re in the 15 gallon pots, couldn’t find a better one
So, that’s all I’ve ordered… tomorrow, I’m gonna maybe order this… two of these actually, since they’re 3x3 each, and I’m gonna be growing 10 plants I suppose, less when I get rid of the males since they don’t grow bud apparently I’ve heard (correct me if i’m wrong) … so here’s the LED lights I plan to use
So yeah… my plan is to grow 10 seeds I ordered here with this equipment… Is there anything missing? I don’t need a tent with this type of light, do I? Or a fan? anything else? I don’t know what many of these other equipments are that I see for growing… I’ve never grown anything, only 1 flower that didn’t bloom completely during a kindergarten project lol, and here I am about to do something kind of big and slightly overwhelming… I only don’t want to screw it up and make it not grow, I don’t care if the quality is not as great just because I didn’t use a certain thing for its temperature/humidity/etc…
any tips/advice would be great also, I would love to know if getting these lights is a good idea, before I order them in 12-15 hours or so. Any links to any other equipments would be great.
The room itself is one entire bedroom, so space is plentiful, I prefer to spend 200 or less (after the lights) for this equipment but will spend a little more if mandatory.
Also I’m probably going to get the soil for all those pots at walmart since i’ve heard they have plenty good soil there, I assume this is ok lol. Thanks in advance for any feedback I might post my growing progress in this topic over the weeks/months, unless I find a better place in the forum to post that.
