Intro: So for the past four years I have pretty much dedicated my entire free time into not only learning how to grow, but searching every dark depth of the internet for the best deals and cheapest ways. I have noticed this to be quite the talent when it comes to my friends and I have gotten really good at building on a budget and I have a lot of fun doing it. It's almost like a personal challenge. My Story: I doubt anyone still active is aware of me but when I first started growing I was supposed to get my taxes and the IRS kept postponing it and shrinking my return amount so I was forced to spend more time researching and learning while still being able to hit fairly decent yields for fairly low prices. I then noticed I got really good at this and began to help my friends setup cheap starter grows. Purpose of thread: You are more than welcome to come here with tips and advice for other beginners or sweet deals you found online. The reason why I am here is because I am pretty bored on the internet and want to help fellow people start up. I am willing to take on one project a day. Odds are I will pick it up before work, then let my brain start plucking away the details until I find a mix for everything. What I need from you is pretty straight forward if you want my help. Money you are comfortable spend. Max money you can spend. What size of the garden. How much stealth. Number of plants. Yield. As many details as you can come up with and specific things will help more. If you want me to help you find soil I will need to know what city you live in just because it's ALWAYS cheaper to go local. Just be warned that this is A LOT of DIY. No man ever got a cheap garden without putting in work.
