New to iglm. Not to growing

Is it on a 40 amp breaker?
I believe you only need #8 copper for 40 amp service.
Perhaps just do a clean #8 run from the main panel.

Welcome.
In terms of having a good smooth grow and really nice bud can’t go wrong with ILGM Northern LIghts. AK-47 put out some really nice buds and was trouble free. Currently have Purple Kush and Purple Haze going. Fantastic plants and I hope the buds follow suit.
This is a purple kush 4 weeks 12/12


Speaking of needing an electrician. I need to have service pulled to my new grow space from the panel that is 10’ away.

No they are regular 2x4s. The prices are nuts. $12 for and 8 footer. It is good it is a relatively small space. Still burn through them pretty fast. I post updates on my grow journal Let’s Grow some Purple Kush

Could you tag me there? I would love to follow

Sorry I didn’t get back to I got newb locked way the mods checked my pockets for spam.

Nice pics. How many amps you plan on using?

Is that a boat?

Been getting things together to start growing the canna again. I will be starting out very casual and spend no more then 500 dollar, with half of that being genetics. I already have lights and fans that I have collected over the years being a electrician.

I have ordered seeds and bought a bale of pro mix bx. Ordering my nutes today along with a ppm and ph meter.

I will also be setting up 2 other people and spending their money. With a least 5 more behind them.

Moving amps water and air is what I do for a living. I don’t think enjoy is the right word for me. More of get it done and get that $$. I will enjoy what comes after.

Well, my plans seem to have changed. I went to check on a couple potential growers and that led to a service change for 1 and some out side sercurity lights for another. That will be around a grand for 3 days work within the next week or so. So the budget for my startup grow just went to 1500.00. Not including genetics and the 200 I already spent. I’m checking on 2 more potential growers this evening.
