Hey y’all! I’ve never grown before but I’m interested. I’m retired now so I’ve got lots of time for it. I wanna figure out all I’ll need for 2-3 plants. I was also wondering about how much electricity a grow like that might cost. Thanks for having me.

Hey Button, welcome aboard! Texas too! Very cool. In terms of your query, I'd have a read through the grow guides first and foremost to kind of get some general ideas.

2-3 plants should be pretty easy and relatively inexpensive to get going. 2'x4' tent, 4"exhaust, carbon filter, nutes/medium, and BAM.

For electric costs, that all depends on what gear you end up using. Some lights use a lot more power than other types, with pros/cons for both. Being that you are in Texas and don't likely have to deal with cooler weather, some nice LEDs would probably be the best bet for you. Something like Invisible Sun, MIGRO, or maybe Mars.. probably looking ar around 300-400W-ish draw when all is said and done. Not sure how much power costs there but yeah. A 3.5 month grow here where I am usually costs me about $150-$170 CAD when all is said and done.

@button I’m in the southern USA as well brother. I run 2 plants each in 2 different tents, four plants total, under led lights in an air conditioned space and my bill went up $15.00 per month .... that’s all it cost me. To get this low of a cost I was careful to buy highly efficient equipment which is a little more of a startup cost but well worth the extra funds. Depending on your setup and the size of the grow the cost isn’t that big unless you get way big and the yield can be completely off the chain mang. Definitely saves a ton of money over buying on the unregulated illicit market.

Not really mate, they can have cheap items in them that are no good. better to buy each thing separately IMO. Unless you're on a tight budget. Then just get what you can for now and upgrade later.
