Hello, folks. I’m a new member and someone that is new to marijuana in general. I never even used it in high school or college but now find myself disabled with medical marijuana proving to be the best way to manage chronic pain. The dispensary in my state is pricey and, since I live on a fixed income, I decided to buy the ILGM Beginner Autoflower White Widow kit to save some money over time.
I need to buy the lights and other growing necessities but can probably only afford to do a little at a time. Since I’m growing indoors, I’ve got to start planning my space and determine how many plants to grow at once. I’ve done a lot of reading on the subject but I’m still unsure what I need.
On to my questions. If I get the BESTVA 1000W LED Grow Light Full Spectrum Dual-Chip Growing Lamp from Amazon, how many plants would it support? The light says it’s for Hydroponics but will it work if I use soil?
I hope that I can get light on them to start them out, using the nutrients and such that came with the kit and grow them in my basement, so it sounds like I need a grow tent. What’s a good size for growing about 5 at a time? And what size buckets? If I go without a grow tent, just how badly will the plants smell…will the odor permeate the whole house?
Sorry for all of the questions but I naively thought that I was just growing regular plants. Even after reading the ILGM book, I thought it had to be easier than it seemed. Heck, even people in college dorms seemed to be able to grow it! Now I find myself worrying about the whole process and want to get it right while spending as little as possible.
Any and all help would be appreciated.
