Okay, I  don't like talking about money (lack of, lol) and the need to do everything cheap as possible...but I know there's no judgement on here, so here it is :
A 60 x 60 grow set up will cost approx £275- £300 to start. I know that isn't a lot of money but it is when you ain't got it! 😆 
I got £150 together right now and will take me a few months to get the rest.
Main reason for wanting to grow is medicinal for my (adult) daughter. As we have no dealer right now, she's feeling the impact of it which has put too much pressure on me to get it right quickly.

If anybody thinks it might be possible to grow 1 good plant for £150 with any kind of "non typical set up", please let me know.
If there isn't, then please also let me know that,too, so I know the score.
I'm still gonna enjoy Percy's, build my knowledge etc.. until I can grow.
Thanks in advance for any advice
Ali

1 good plant for £150

no - But you may start one and plan the end in 4 month if you have the res in the next 2 month.

Plants are like children - always surprising you.

@alij68 and im sure if you buy a tent and light youll be able to save up some money over the 8 weeks veg to buy a cheap 4inch extraction kit for about £50 you can buy the mars ts1000 for £116 with postage i used the discount code BWARD and you could possibly get a small 60×60×120 for around £45 im sure you have a fan lying around that would do for a while until you can save for the extraction

@alij68 You have spoken to the experts and done your research so let’s forget talking money and look at some other possibilities. Do you have any skills with your hands. Can you handle small diy projects. What about tools, do you have any and if so are you any good with them. Just asking what else besides money that we have to work with. Let’s see if we can brainstorm some grow kit.

its possible to do it really cheap if you want to as the boys said . i once grew in a kitchen press when i was in college wasnt a great result but i was using a shitty light . have you a waredrobe like josh said, one you dont use in a spare room, line it with mylar, cheap extractor ''you might have a 4inch bathroom one lying around'' and carbon filter important thing is a light then. a mars or the ish100 would be perfect as they dont mess your environment to much. you dont have to be to secretive if its an open topic of adults in the house, just keep strangers out of that room. how many ounces would you buy in say 4 months. use that as a guide as to how many plants you need to grow.  @monkeydo is a legend when it comes to work arounds Thumbs Up

@monkeydo You always have great advice Monkey- thank you. This would definitely have been the way to go and I appreciate it. No tools,not very handy with diy (apart from decorating) but I have had a great offer of a second hand set up within my budget, so will be getting that once my money comes through next week! 😍 I'm over the moon right now...genuinely can't believe it, but it will sink in and then I have to get my head together and gen up as much as I can.
Which leaves me with- what's best type of seeds to get for when I'm ready? Auto or Feminised?

No matter if you choose you are going to want feminized seed. Photo period vs Autoflower would be the question. I feel you probably knew this just typed it incorrectly. I would think the right auto would be the easiest start. Exactly which one depends on what medicine your daughter needs.

You will need to go with a Feminised or regular - Those will not start to flower until you switch the light to 12/12.

JUST WANNA GIVE BIG THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO ARE SUPPORTING ME, IT REALLY IS AWESOME.
After over a year of searching, I am finally in the right place to start my grow and help my daughter get her life back. She's 25 but like an old woman, can barely move. The Flower takes all the pain away and she's a different person. That's why I'm so emotional about it....but let's just keep blaming Menopause! Ha.
I'm off to enjoy a walk in the rain.....one of life's many free pleasures.
Catch you all later.
Happy Hugs
