    Default Starting a Personal Grow-Op

    So...

    with all this contaminated stuff around and the scarcity and price of decent cannabis the only logical thing to do is to treat it like the plant it is and GROW IT!

    So i've comfortably reached this conclusion and i have a bunch of questions regarding starting a grow-op. I spoke to a guy at the cannabis college in amsterdam and he reccomended one of the all inclusive grow tent kits, is this the way to go?

    Is there any way that I can grow it without it stinking my house out? i share with some uncool people. Does it require a lot of electricity? how much a week for one tent w/600w lamp for example? Does anyone have any good sites that sell these and/or any free online rescources on growing your own? what kind of yeilds and timeframes can i expect?

    Im starting out and need a point in the right direction, it seems theres lots of ways of doing it.

    Thanx

    grow tents are good. you will get a carbon filter with it aswel so most of the stink would be taken out that way. you would need an XL size tho for a 600w light because of the heat it will give off.

    or a cool tube setup

    depends i would start in soil (unless you were a white coat then hydro way forward) then pick your strain

    if leccy is a concern i would personly get a 400w hps

    decide how many you want to grow then get a tent to suit your needs (wouldnt go smaller than 80x80x160)

    carbon filter is a must if smell an issue escaping

    and for pointing in right direction have a look at peoples grow diarys you soon no what you want loads of bud porn in that section

    for a starter shopping list it would look like this:

    1 tent
    light source
    seeds
    good compost with perlite added
    some pots get 3 diff sizes start in small then work up
    temp humidty guage
    good extraction or a cooltube setup
    and how could i forget the forum all the help you could need

    stir it all up and you will end up with some proper nice bud
    My mostly D.N.A grow with a few others
    12/12
    400w hps
    1.2x1.2x2m tent
    5" rvk with odorsok

    free online rescources on growing your own....... Your right here man
    You don't need an xl size for a 600watt. You can grow in what ever space you have xl to me is like



    Its as big as a small room 2.2m by 2m

    As long as you have ways of keeping things cool your fine

    If you live with uncool people then maybe a stealth grow is the way forward. But that depends on how much you smoke....

    Thanks, that's some good information!

    I've also found something that seems pretty helpful. It's a series of DVDs by Jorge Cervantes, endorsed by high times and I've only watched the first hour but it seems really good. Step by step grow-op instructions!

    Covers a lot of the discussed including carbon filter smell reduction etc. He also uses a few humidity and temperature gauges at different spots in the tent for example air intake to stop cold air being blown onto the plants.

    Thanks for the help. My plan is to go for one of the smaller grow tent kits from greenshorticulture.co.uk.

    Glad to find a home amongst tokers and I'll keep posting.

    Peace.
