    Take it your not looking to spend much? Before you grow really should consider the smell that will occur.. to save any detection u will need invest in carbon filter with an extraction. This can destroy most first time growers hopes. But nevertheless an amazing investment

    Should be okay then! From what I learnt ya best bet to invest in a good light, ideally ya want a hps for ya flowering phase with this in mind ya will need a ballast to use it, which cost around £80 including the bulb, but this also allow you to get the MH bulb (vegetation stage) version if you get a good ballast! U can have dimmable options so you can control your temperature better!

    That’s a more productive path when focusing on your lights how ever you could get a dual spectrum cfl light which more reasonable for budget, doesn’t require a ballast, just need a reflector to fit the light in, roughly £40 for light bulb £15 for reflector

    But then again the extra £40 allows you to have more control tempture in your grow room. Which worth every penny.. and Evidently more effective in yield

    Wait home made? The aluminium foil u find in kitchen will create hot spot and not recommended to use at all, Mylar is good

    Very true. Best to use the dull side of the foil if you have no option
