    Default Equipment List Help

    Hey,
    I’m in the process of planning a small grow, in terms of setup I have a 1.5m 1.7m x 2.4m space available and around £600-£750 to spend on equipment.

    First of all, I have a bit of confusion with lighting. I have been doing research myself but am torn between getting a HID setup or a led setup, what do you guys think would be best for my budget?

    In terms of grow tents I have found 2.
    Budbox pro – 1.5m x 1.5m x 2.2m £190
    Budbox pro - 120cm x 120cm x 220cm - £150
    Would I want silver or white lining?

    For ventilation I was looking at a RVK Fan & Rhino Filter Extraction Kit
    6" (150mm) 428m3/hr (RVK A1) with 150mm/300mm Rhino Pro Filter

    hope you guys can help me out.

    None of the actual grow but some of the setup can be seen here http://www.thctalk.com/cannabis-foru...lent-Ruck-200L

    I was routinely pulling 55~58 in an outbuilding with my mate 2 x 1000w 4 plants under each lamp....Exodus cheese should give between 7 and 8oz per plant on a 5 week veg depending on growing skills and if you have your environment properly dialed in...Loads of documentation in the links in my sig..

    Thanks for the reply Bud,

    So for a tent roughly 1.5 x 1.5 x 2.0 you think a 1000w would be better over a 600W? and 6 plants would be better over having 4?

    If you have the room and the budget the 1.5 x 1.5 and 1000w is a great setup....600w in 1.2 x 1.2 with 4 plants should see 25oz so the bigger setup is more economical in the long run...

    my budget at this point is £750, would that be sufficient for a 1000w grow? Ideally i want quality equipment, especially with the lighting, tent and ventalation system.

    Hydro is a no 100%, I think for my first grow I will use soil, is using coco much harder/different?

    Coco is a halfway house between soil & hydro

    Hey dude! The sticky at the top of this section is well worth a read. You probably already have http://www.thctalk.com/cannabis-foru...-And-Nutrients . Then if you have a look at some of the grow diaries they are really useful to see the problems others faced (or questions they ask!). I got pointed to this one due to the high EC of the water out of my tap. Have a read, Ironman does a good job of summing up how to measure up nutrients etc that answered some of the questions in my mind. http://www.thctalk.com/cannabis-foru...C-is-driving!/

    I also found this useful (once I had read the others as some of the terms I wasn't aware of!). I can't help much more but a quick search of the forum will find lots of these bits and pieces
