Any way you say you have a closet grow wright ?
Well that 1000 watt light of yours is a bit much for a closet grow. I hope you can turn that baby down a little … lol
Is there any way that you can vent your closet for heat and smell.
you’ll need a small fan for sure.
And I’m sure there will be others that will jump in here to help us out.


Welcome to the forum! I echo what @garrigan62 said.

If your going to use the plastic buckets make sure you put a bunch of holes in them for the water to drain. You do not want the roots to sit in water it will lead to root rot.

Off the top of my head items that you should have.
Temperature/hygrometer gage
Ph up/ph down solution
Ph meter (my recommendation spend a little extra here)
TDS meter
A method to hang your light to allow it to me raised and lowered as needed
If odor is an issue a carbon filter hooked to an exhaust fan

Depending on your environment you may need heating, cooling, humidifier or a dehumidifier. If you are growing photo period plants make sure that you have the closet sealed from all light.

You are setting up your own world. You can go as crazy as you want. I’m sure that I’m missing something but someone else’s will be along to help out too.

Most importantly bring patients, curiosity and a good attitude. These will help a great deal.


How big is your space? How many plants are you planning on growing? Looking at the specifications, you may need more lighting.

lots of knowledge,
read all the grow books and forum guides u can find,
then watch a chit ton of u-tube videos,
then… re-read all the books and guides,
at that point u should be ready to gather equipment and plant seed.!!!

soaking seed then seeking knowledge is bass-ackwards.!
i would toss them first seeds out and start learning about the task at hand.!!
