We got you Chad, welcome to the forum mate Smile good to have you here Smile

most growers will start in a 1m x 1m x 2m grow tent, do you have enough room for that?

You need it to be hidden, basement is the best plan imo, What space do you have down there?

Is it legal to grow where you are?

Hi! Congrats on starting your grow. I think the basement would be better. Colder is better than hot. And easier to fix. The lights will generate heat. You may need a small heater....the environment is most important part. Flowering cannabis likes 72-75 degrees F. If your flowers get too hot it could cause all kinds of problems....mold, hermies, pests. Not to mention growth slows or halts when it’s too hot...so loss of yield and potency. Terpenes are volatile compounds....loss of flavor. 

What medium do you plan on using? Soil? Coco? What lights? You need fresh air intake and stale air outtake. Oscillating fan(s). Dehumidifier and/or humidifier. Temp and humidity gauges. Ph meter. If you can get a laser thermometer, do it. You use it to check the temp of your flowers....which will be different from the room settings. You need pots, soil, perlite, nutrients, drip trays. 

Are you growing photo’s or auto’s? DO NOT TOP AUTO’S. Leave them alone. If you’re doing photo’s, you need a light-tight area. NO LIGHT LEAKS. It needs to be completely dark....so dark you crap yourself when the lights go out....but seriously, get in there with lights-off and check for leaks. 

Have your environment running for at least a day before you put plants in there. Make sure it’s good. Monitor it like a hawk. 

Are you doing organic or chems?

different rules. Not gonna get into it until I know your answer. 

 

Did I forget anything???

Grow tent is the best way to go mate you want get much for that amount though, maybe a 60cm grow tent, to grow a couple of plants in, will that be neighbors,ants for you? How much do you smoke?

A 1.2 m x1.2m tent I'd go for then mate, you think you have room for that? Four plants in there, get your around 16-20 Oz, that will cover the time to get another crop finished.

As for investment, $400 should get you a starter setup that size, and some nutrients. You'll need a PH and EC pen that cost around $100 for both. I think $500 should cover everything.
