My wife and I love a good toke, but times are getting hard and we really can't afford to keep spending money on pot... We have a bunch of seeds we've collected over the last 2-3 years of smoking. I don't know whether they are indica, sativa or a hybrid. I've been reading a lot on here and I recently sold some of my toys to try and finance our own little grow.
My wife uses herb medicinally for her back. The prospect of not having any is extremely tough on her. I really want to make this work because it looks like a ton of fun. I don't plan on growing more than 2 at a time right now, but that could change in the future if this does well. We went to the local hydroponics shop today and the guy there was amazingly helpful. He recommended Flora Duo to us and loaned us one of the books he had for sale to get us started (Gardening indoors with soil & hydroponics). He didn't try and make a huge sale with us which I really appreciated. Between the Nutes and the B/W poly we walked out with a good bit of free stuff to help get us started.
I'm pretty much shamelessly ripping off Beeze's set up. I really enjoyed his entire journal and it made me feel like I might stand more than a snowball's chance in hell of actually getting something smokeable.
Our little tent is 3'w x 3'l x 6'h, the SCROG is 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5. I'm currently using four 23 watt CFL's for my seeding phase. I've ordered a pro source 90 watt LED UFO ($200 on Amazon! ) and it should be here next week hopefully. I'm into the entire set up for a little bit less than $360 so far. The pots are set up with 1/2 potting soil 1/4 perlite and 1/4 vermiculite. Right now we have a watering can and a small mister, nothing really complex.
Right now I have:
Grow tent - 3'w x 3'l x 6'h
SCROG is 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5
four 23 watt CFL's on a timer running 18/6
2 seeds put in the pots today (9/11...)

I don't know what I need to do as far as ventilation or CO2 generation so any suggestions would be fantastic. I'm really looking forward to this whole experience.
