So, after two years of outdoor growing with mediocre results, I’ve decided to start an indoor grow. I’ve bought a Gorilla 2 x 4 tent and HLG 260W XL QB V2 Rspec LED Kit so far. That’s all I have and I know I need a lot of peripherals. Looking for suggestions for a complete setup. Budget isn’t much of an issue.
ph meter, ec pen Blue lab or Apera
Exhaust fan set up ac infinity 6"
Small fans for circulation
Jacks 321 nutes
Ph up and down
Garden ties if doing LST
Fabric pot 5 gal
Risers for pots
Wood moisture meter
Chair and music to sit and stare at the girls
You may not need all this, or you may need more. but I was just looking around my room. Lol
It seems like @beachglass has you covered. Id just like to add knee pads or a kneely which is a better kneepad essentially because sometimes its better to kneel than sit or if im down in my tent long i switch off between sitting and kneeling
If budget is no issue, Autopots, with coco-coir and perlite.
You will thank me later. Just watch some youtube on them if you are not familiar with them.
They are the ultimate grow tent cheat code
If you are going to buy your ventilation fan and oscillating fans off amazon buy ac infinity products. They have 10% amazon coupons already and the coupon code “mr grow it 15” will stack on top of that. Plus they all tie into their controllers that come with the ventilation fan. The one with controller 69 has ports to control 3 additional fans. I highly recommend this setup for the ease of automation of your ventilation and air circulation. Plus they are super quiet!
I didn’t see power/outlet strips mentioned yet, timers either. I have 2 wifi power strips, one in each tent, one is the KASA brand and the other is BN Link. These are a god send because you can have a different on/off schedule for each outlet (multiple schedules allowed for each). Lights on a 18/6 schedule? no problem. Fans? Don’t wanna wear them out prematurely so schedule one to run for a couple of hours and shut off and another starts up and wash, rinse, repeat! It does away with needing an individual timer for each item.
They are pretty simple to set up too, so if you aren’t the most technically savvy person it’s not even gonna be an issue.
The exhaust fan that comes with the controller 69 will allow you to automate your exhaust and circulation if you buy ac infinity products. It allows you to set points for temperature and humidity and it idles your fans up and down automatically as needed. It however does not control the light timer unless you have ac infinity lights. I’m waiting on them to release controllable outlets so I can have my non ac infinity products controlled by the controller. I still have to have a separate inkbird humidistat to control my humidifier/dehumidifier.
I have a tiny 2x2 tent, I have a small el cheapo amazon humidifier and my vent fan idles up to handle excess humidity. I also use a cheap timer. As long as it has ground prong on the plugs any cheap timer will work for lights.here’s how I started off
How do you fertilize with the Autopots? I see some liquid fertilizers online, but it looks like you just use the same mix throughout the growth cycle. That seems odd, since Fox Farms for instance changes ratios every week.
