Hey, I’ll be moving into a new house in a month or two and looking to start a grow, I grew once back in uni about 10 years ago, but have been diligently researching for a while and think I’ve gotten my head around most of it. Have I missed anything out or has anyone got any advice / tips, or better suggestions for me? In the UK and will be an indoor grow. 

Light - mars hyrdo ts1000, or an HLG 100 or 135, although these seem slightly harder to source and some assembly required? 

Tent - unsure on exact tent, as I need to move in to get exact measurements. But it will be going into a built-in cupboard, so will be going for maybe  60x60, or a 120x60. Not sure if it’s worth going for a mars hydro, budbox, or a cheap brandless one on eBay / Amazon? 

Fan - AC infinity s4, wanted to get a cheaper one but have heard bad things about a lot of fans, ac infinity is almost universally praised. 

Carbon filter - rhino pro 4” - is this a good choice? 

Medium - soil, biobizz light mix

Nutes - biobizz range, grow, bloom, and top max. Was last going to pickup some root juice and calmag, both from biobizz

Then of course all the other bits and pieces, ducting, hygrometer, clip-on fans, timers, ph up / down and ph drops. I’m thinking of getting a cheap oil heater too and having it either inside or just next to the tent, and I’m unsure what the humidity will be like, don’t know if I’ll need a dehumidifier or humidifier, or both or neither 😂. Also I’m thinking 15 - 20L pots, is this size ok for a 60x60 cupboard grow? 

anything I’ve missed or overlooked? Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers! 

also I love the podcast, been chain listening to it at work been really useful 😊👍

As twisted said 👍

Not sure if it’s worth going for a mars hydro, budbox, or a cheap brandless one on eBay / Amazon? ”

if it was me I’d avoid a brandless one. 
I have a lumatek 200w for veg & £300w one for flowering and there really good. Mars I hear lots of good things not herd a sad story yet regarding them.

a nameless one doesn’t have anything to live upto could set your house on fire at worst and at best do 1/2 the job a good one would I would think 🤔 

As we say buy cheep buy twice.

good luck and I hope you put your grow on here so we can drool while waiting for our next harvest 😆

Cheers guys! Yeah will keep updated once I get it all setup, can’t wait to drop the beans, but I have a while to wait and just keep overthinking and second guessing myself. 

Oh yeah, for brandless one I was talking about a grow tent, the light I think I’ve narrowed down to HLG or mars hydro

Hi bro, welcome back to growing ! Smile /p>

All looks pretty much a good list ...  

i would urge u to consider how much u intend to produce (how much u need for personal consumption) then add a bit extra for the unforeseen and work back from there... you may want a bigger light imo or one that best fits youre space .. a 2x4 you'll a rectangular light footprint and around 200-300 watts for that space. A 100w will do a 2x2 area for both veg and flower, not more without compromise..

And I'd urge you to go on the bigger side if unsure... many people end up buying more kit / 2nd tents etc but a 2x4 / 3x3 can produce 10oz give or take (obs depending on many factors like strains etc) in soil without too much knowledge or experience necessary, especially here at percys!

Good luck and have fun with it .. and get any help u need here Smile /p>

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@jonnymango Welcome, bro!  This is a good place. Just ask if you need anything.

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, And Eternity in an hour.

@jonnymango AC infinity has amazing tents.  I have their 60x60 in my closet and it's the nicest tent I own and less than $100.
