Hi all, I’m completely new to this indoor growing and need some advice. I should mention up front that money is an issue so I’m having to do this with what I can afford. If I give too much or unnecessary info here forgive as I don’t know what’s important.
I have no need of controlling odor so that’s not needed. I have a large storage room attached to my house to set up in. What I have in hand is a King Plus 1500W Double Chips LED Grow Light Full Spectrum with hardware to hang it I picked up on the cheap recently and plenty of 2mil Mylar that reflects 97% of the light according to the labeling. I have various options for fans to circulate air.
I’ll be building a wood cabinet (have all the lumber I need in hand so no need to buy a tent). Any advice on things I need to consider for the cabinet build would be greatly appreciated.
Mainly today I’m considering which auto flowering strain to go with so I can order the seeds from here. The strain I like the best I’ve tried before was Northern Lights in 1998. The man who grew it said he obtained the seed from the person who created the strain Alaska growers were growing at that time. No idea if that was true or not, but it was just like the old Humboldt County Green Bud in days past (I’m an old fart). Pine tree taste and smell, easy on the throat and gave a happy, happy, happy high and the buds were huge.
I’ve tried the Northern Lights from the pro growers here in Anchorage, but it’s not at all the same and not anywhere near as good. To say I’m disappointed in an understatement. They seem to have bred out all the qualities that made Northern Lights so good. I’m leery of Northern Lights seeds on the market for that reason.
From reading I’m thinking White Widow auto flowering. I’d like to grow four plants in that space. A little weed last me a long time, so probably once a year I’d hope. An ounce of good weed lasts me 4 to 6 months and then of course friends. If I could get say 6 ounces a grow I’d be happy. Are there others I should be considering? I like a mix of body and head high.
I’ve deciding autoflowering is what I need since I want small plants and a modest yield.
I do have what I need to monitor PH and a set of soil test kits in hand.
ETA: Jack Herer maybe?
