I have maybe 5 years of experience growing in soil. I didn't grow anything for the next 5 years and now I'd like to get back into it. 90% of all my previous growing experience was: 1 or 2 600w hps Ocean forest soil Fox farm nutes I've grown plants in pots ranging from one gallon to 7 gallon pots from sog to scrog Vegged plants under a 4ft florescent light. I'm assuming times have changed a tiny bit in over 5 years. I'm contemplating going the hydro route but I have zero experience and I'm not sure how to do it with any success or if it's worth it. What are the major differences between soil and hydro? I'm on limited space with lighted light (one 600w hpd for sure. Not sure I'll be using the other one trying to keep my electric bill in line) Are LEDs still ridiculously priced and inferior? I'm growing semi discreet. Not lugging dirt seems like it'll help my cause (bringing it in, then getting rid of it after harvest) Please chime in. Your opinion is valued.
