    Smile New house and space to grow - Scotland

    Hi

    Was on here introducing myself about a year ago but been busy with new baby and new house.

    Now want to get hydroponics system set up in attic or in hut outside?

    Can anyone recommend good hydroponics supplier in Scotland?

    Moved away from Edinburgh and all my friends who used to grow, now need to get my finger out and get learning and getting on with it.

    Thanks

    It's funny how life gets in the way of other plans

    We have a few Scottish growers here, I'm sure one will be able to advise

    Sorry dude can't reccomend anyone local to Scotland but eBay is always really good and cheap too! Kitbag is a good supplier or I think they're called hydroponics4less?

    Thanks had a look at hydroponics4less and they have complete kit options.

    Would like to be able to buy everything required in one go but not sure about quality?

    I can understand the attraction to buy it all in one go. However I think that you will get a more tailor made setup specifically for your needs if you shop around and work out what it is you want before you buy anything.

    I think it is best to start with a clear idea of what it is you wish to achieve. So in my case it was to grow one plant for my our own consumption. That mean any grow that produced an ounce minimal was enough. So once I had that sorted it was a little less complicated to work out what I needed to achieve that target.

    The next step for me was to decide where the grow was going to happen. This was key because the where will determine the requirements of the how. No point in buying a tent that is 2.2m high if all you have is 1.6m headroom. Physical space will determine to some extent the lights that you can use as well as the tent size.

    Once all that is sorted then it becomes real easy. Extractor system and lights.

    The other stuff found in the kits are real easy to buy online and are very discreetly packaged for delivery. Heck you could get everything from Amazon I guess.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes that helps a lot.

    I only need for personal use but space is not a problem in attic.

    If this is just for myself for cooking with and vaping then how many plants do I need to grow in year?

    I would probably need 10oz per year minimum.

    If it is only for myself do I need to go down hydroponics route if I am only needing to grow enough for myself?


    Like the idea of organic growing.



    Was thinking this tent as a starting point and build from there.

    LAB100 1M GROW TENT (100X100X200CM) from HYDROLAB

    This is the Medium Value small Grow Kit from Greens Hydrponic and all equipment seems of a very high standard and this supplier is recommended.

    What’s in the kit?

    The kit has some good stuff for sure. The extractor and carbon filter are top notch and you will be happy with the lights too. Tent is good, I went with the Hydrolab one but Green Cube was my second option.

    In all honesty I would not buy a kit. What I can do in a little while is list for you what I got and then compare total cost v kits. Yield is more to do with which kind of plant your grow rather than your kit. Sure the kit will play a part but the strain of plant is key.

    Thanks for info.

    I am enjoying the research and reading.

    Not even started looking at yields and plant variations.

    Been waiting to do this for years.

    Good the journey is as valuable as the destination I have found. Think about the kinds of week you like and then find those strains that match your preferences. Each of those plants will have a growing profile, search and see if anyone here has a grow diary for those plants (Strain or brand name) and read the diary. So to use an example, I am simply going to grow a very easy auto plant for now. Using soil and not complicating anything. BUT I want to grow a version of Durban Poison ultimately. So that means my kit and groom needs to be suitable for that strain. See what I mean?

    Thanks Viz

    I am going to start ordering over next few days.

    Better start doing some research into different strains of auto flowering.

    Yeah that is what I did for my first grow too. Auto just seemed the best way for a first grow. Cheek out the sponsors here on THCtalk some awesome deals. I ordered three seeds and was sent 5 single seeds of different strains. Well impressed with that.

    There are a couple of adds on the site from different sponsors who give prizes and support the site too.

    I clicked a few of those links till I found the seeds I wanted and the price was very good too.

    Love THC talk.

    Seriously feel like I am a teenager again with saved up cash for my 1st car.

    Still just trying to find my way around site as you do not want to be asking questions that have already been answered repeatedly.

    If you are struggling with the site search engine, use the google site search. But I found the guys were very gentle and simply answered my questions. None of the flaming that I have seen on other sites

    So this is what I do.
