hey peeps, I am a first time grower and in process of purchasing everything I need to grow. with ur guys help ive decided on the equipment im going to use. the mrs isn't happy after seeing the bank statement but its all goodπŸ˜†Β  . im really confused with what medium I should use soil/coco and what nutrient if any and when. my understanding on measuring PH is limited and anything I know ive just learnt recently from YouTube. (very little) if anyone knows of any links to guides which may help me gain a better understanding about the above topics will be very helpful .Β 

I will be usingΒ  auto flower seeds, I have a 4x4 tent and plan to grow 4-6 plants in 5 gallon fabric pot. (please let me know how many plants I should grow on my first attempt) the light I will be using is the spider farmer 4000

It would be greatly apricated if some one could kindly suggest the medium and nutrients I should use as a beginner and how much of it should purchaseΒ  , im not to fussed if its organic or not.Β  im in the uk, my local hydro shop has mainly canna products however I mainly shop on ebay and amazon.Β 

sorry for all the question I feel like a the new guy at work lmfao.Β 

thank yuΒ

Ask as many as you need mate, this is what we are here for Smile Better to ask now, and be sure, then come asking how to fix a sick plant πŸ˜‰Β 

My personal opinion is coco is the best medium for beginners. You needΒ  good ph pen, and ec pen, and some decent nuits.Β 

Coco takes watering very day though, and you need to feed from the start of the grow, as coco has no nutrients in it. The plus side of that is you know what available to your plants, so its easier to fix problems if you have any.

Uk grower too, so I wold suggest, Canna A n B, with some rhizotonic to start with, use canna professional coco for the medium. That will get you off to a good start Smile
