    Default Complete Grow Tent Kit

    Hi

    I am planning to start my first indoor grow, can you recommend a good complete grow kit for a newbie like me? Going to start autoflowers, maybe a few pots using soil and develop from there.

    Thanks

    Any complete grow kits have made compromises to keep the price competitive Buy separates

    Is there a thread on recommended separate products?

    Yeh mate, ask around a lot before you buy or you'll be re-buying shit and wasting money like I did. Figure out what tent/fan/light etc are best for you and your situation before you splash the cash.

    It's not always as simple as that. Usually you start with dimensions for your tent & work from there

    The only thing I still use from my kit is the bloody ducting all the rest if it was shit. Buy seperate mate sometimes can work out cheaper too.

    I'll second that Kurdt I did the same, I'm looking at a second tent and definitely going for separates this time. Buy the best you can afford, research all of items you require look at independent reviews, decide soil or hydro and go for it. Keep Researching.

    hi guys, i've measured the growing area and these are my measurements:

    THE MAXIMUM DIMENSIONS ARE:
    Length: 140cm
    Width: 140cm
    Height: 160cm

    THE MINIMUM DIMENSIONS ARE:
    Length: 120cm
    Width: 120cm
    Height: 160cm

    Is it true that the bigger the tent, the stronger the light?

    Yeah. More space requires more light. 120 to 140 is not much of a difference though. I think that 1, 600 watt hps or around 300 actual watt LED would work for either size. Any thoughts on what light you want?

    How is your budget?

    You need a tent, light, ducting, filter and blower to start.

    That will be difficult. Decent filters are expensive and cheap filters dont work well.

    Will a 4" Extractor Fan Carbon Filter be suitable for a 120cm x 120cm x 200cm grow tent?

    I've got a 4in rvk for extraction in a 1x1x1.8 m tent so don't see why not, I have a variac fan controller and on 1 you can see the tent sucking in so I'd say yeh but better wait for someone who can give you a posi answer

    I know that the whole purpose of a carbon filter is for the smell.

    The grow will be in an attic and there’s a sky line window literally right next to the tent.

    My question is…does it have to be a 6” carbon filter fan? Can I just get away with a 4” considering the fact it’s located in an attic and there is a window there that can be opened and closed for ventilation to escape the smell? Surely the smell will rise up and not into the next door if it was downstairs.

    Ah right I see, well given that I've got 4 in and theres only 20 cm extra all round on your tent I can't see why you'd need 6 in not 4 in, especially if you're not fitting filter

    You'd be surprised mate how strong the smell can get and how it can permeate all over the house. My fan got switched off once and I was out the house for about an hour, when I came back, the house was absolutely reeking!
