    I was looking into these CMH lights and they do look decent and have read some good reviews tbh so maybe one for the future along with the LEDS and everything else I want to try lol as for now I’m thinking of starting up with the mh/hps route and going from there because wow your not wrong there’s so many ways and different methods to this shit it’s unreal and I’m intrigued to try my hand at them all so I’m going to start slowly building my set up now with the help and advice I’m getting from all you guys and then get shit going.

    It’s the best way mate, start small, and upgrade after each crop. I estimate the value of my weed, at street value. Minus prices of leccy and food n shit, figure out how much I’ve saved, and put about twenty percent back into the grow setup. Other wise I feel like I’m robbing my partner in crime or something it’s a partnership, the grow deserves a treat for its hard work too!

Run the 80cm para in it, again off flea bay for £40. Omega digi ballast. I've used omega bulbs, sunmaster and power plant. And they all do the same job. Carbon filter for me either rhino pro or red Scorpion. And extraction fan for me is the 5" rvk A1.
    Nutes for me are vitalink but that's just with how hard my water is. 0.8 background on good days. Up 1.0 ec winter time so a 1 part grow and 1 part bloom in hard water are a must. Tried Canna AnB and the plants didn't like it at all.
    👍🏻👍🏻
    Top man thanks for the info & taking the time to write it👍I’m thinking of going with a Greenqube 1.2x1.2 and currently still looking at parabolics and diff brands etc.
    As for the filters/fans I’m guessing the rhino carbon filters are the best seem to hear most have them and they seem to work fine for them and okay cool I hear a lot have the RVK extractors too and these are proven to work well what about noise though?are these still decent noise wise? I’m guessing you can get silencers etc for fans anyway if they turn out to be too loud right? Also what about inlet?? Any recommendations??Am I right in guessing that the carbon filter goes in the ducting in which your extraction can will be at the end off? will also need to get a decent thermostat etc too for heat humidity won’t I lol can’t wait to start piecing it all together im excited already😝👍

    Looks like rvk it is then are these purely for extraction or would I need an rvk for inlet too?? Sorry for being such a noob guys🤦🏻*♂️ give me 12 months once I get my set up and I’ve learnt the basics and done a couple grows learnt a couple tips and tricks & I’ll be on my way to at least a semi pro!!
    I will with the amount of help on here anyway plus I’m a fast learner especially when it comes to something I’m interested in.
    Thanks for the help guys it is greatly appreciated !✌️💚BM

    We were all noobs, lol.

    Yeah you could have say 5" outtake then 4" intake. Or 6" out 5" in

    As long as your extraction is greater power than you intake for the negative pressure.

    Rhino carbon filters are the way to go. Make sure the filter is rhino pro and not rhino hobby

    I would go for the 6" RVK L1 extract if funds allow, plenty of suction, can be turned down and should your grow expand (as im sure it will) you wont have to buy another one, also 5" A1 for intake

    Okay cool! Thanks for your advice AND!
    Might have to go with the 6”then if it can be turned down etc either that if the 5” im guessing the bigger supposed to be better then?Also how will this be noise wise??
    And what is this L1/A1 model thing all about?whats the difference?
    Many thanks

    A1 =330 m3 per hour
    L1 =720 m3 per hour

    This is from my head though, actual figures might be slightly different

    Niose is about the same full whack but turned down its less than the 5"

    And It Begins....

    I have managed to get my self a Parabolic Shade!! I was going to go for the 800 but I’ve ended up getting myself a SunKing 1000 as it was an offer I just couldn’t resist and I do love a bargain! £20!! Been used but in pretty good condition tbh just given it a wipe down and tightened up any loose screws and it’s sweet! I looked these up online before buying and the cheapest sunking shade alone cost £40 of fleebay but when I actually looked online at a couple of local grow suppliers they only supplied it as a light kit along with a standard ballast and 600w bulb for I think it was around £110 so think for my 1st purchase I’ve not done too bad just going to have to get the lumii ballast ordered and bulbs and she will be ready to go! Thanks again for all your advice given everyone 👍👊

    Sweet thanks for the info man! If noise does ever become a problem I can get stuff for sound reduction to attach to the fans right??
