Ok, so i’ve made the beautiful decision to start cultivating my own herb. I am completely new, have done a lot of research and bought a lot of shit, but would like confirmation that i’ve got everything I need, or for someone with more experience to help me out.
So far I have purchased…
Tent set (60 x 60 x 140) which comes with in/out fan, timer, shitty standard light which i’ve replaced
MarsHydro 300w Light
Carbon filter system
2 x 3.8L pots
2 x 8L pots
Nutrient trio set (flora)
Dehumidifier (no humidifier as my house is normally at around 70%, which i think is fine for germination and everything else has to be lower, correct me if i’m wrong)
Canna Terra professional plus soil
(don’t think i’ve missed anything)
One question i did have… If i’m using nutrient rich soil, how much do i need to apply the extra nutes? Do i wait until my soils not giving the plant what it needs then start adding?
I’m also curious as to how many/what pot size people would try to grow if using the tent i’m using. I was thinking of doing 2 auto’s, starting in a 3.8L and moving up to an 8L
PS sorry for my noobiness, if i had more space for a bigger tent i’d buy 10 haha.
Thanks in advance for any help, i’ve tried to get as clued up as i can before coming on the forum so as to not ask a generic “pls help me grow weed” question.
3.8L container will do fine for each auto. They don’t live that long. If you can start them in this, they won’t have suffer transplant shock later.
You’ll need one more mars hydro for proper flowering footprint when they’re more mature.
A pesticide sprayer for watering is helpful but not needed. I use one to water all 7 of mine. It applies water/nutrients at just the right amount that it all gets absorbed without pooling and running off the side of the container.
Otherwise I think you did awesome with your list. Welcome to ILGM.
Ok… makes more sense now. That light will work for your space then. Get a grow under it and then see how your buds are. If you wanna push the envelope in the future with lights, tag @dbrn32 when you’re ready. Best of luck getting started! Welcome to the forum
