Hi everyone. I’m a very new beginner. I don’t have any personal experience at growing cannabis. My only knowledge is from all the websites and forums I been reading and videos I been watching. I even subscribe to a couple of podcasts for my drive to work so I could always be learning. I came a cross this community through a podcast called Cheap Home Grow where Macky was talking about DWC vs Organic grows. 

I want to start a 2x4 ebb and flow system in a 4x4 by 6,5 feet tall grow tent. I hope I’m not in over my head. I choose this system because I like the automated way to feed the plants and how fast it is to go from seed to harvest. I also planing to grow 4-6 plants.  Still deciding on the kind of seeds but most likely will be autoflower seed and see how that goes. 

I have lots of questions but I’m first going to check the website for answers.

thank u

You're were in way over your head mate, but now you're a member here, you'll smash it 😉 

if you're going with a 4ft x 4ft tent, I'd recommend only going for four plants mate. They grow big and fast, they will fill that space, more than four and the tent will be too cramped. 

You got equipment yet? Or just starting out? 

Much love Percy Growers, Happy Growing!

Welcome to the Grow Room mate! Glad you liked the podcast 🙂 

Is your mind set on full hydro? Growing in coco is the best way for new growers, and the yield won't be far off what ebb and flow can bring you. 

Less equipment, so less chance of shit going wrong. You can also set up a drip feeder to auto feed in coco. 

If full hydro is your weapon of choice, that's cool, just making sure you've explored other options, and choosing what's right for you 🙂

Light, tent, something for a res, and airstones? You're not far off mate, you gotta make a decision on strain......

I do like the hydro concept. I seen many other ways to grow cannabis I thought this way was a great way to feed my plants while I’m at work. The only thing that worrying me about it is if any thing goes wrong with the timers or water pump I might lose everything. I work long hours and by the time I get home it might be to late

Could you get to the Grow at least once a day at around the same time? Or are you away from home?

See, growing in soil, you might yield a little less, but the quality will be better, and you don't need pumps and all that. Just hand water every two to three days.
