First Grow Setup Advice

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I've been a lurker here for a while, and I've finally decided to take the plunge now that I'm legal.

    My biggest problem is that I live in a place that even though I'm legal, they want the smell and noise to be minimum. I also have limited space to work with, and can't modify the place (yes, an apartment, yes they are ok as long as I'm legal and nobody complains about smell).

    I've looked into the different prefab grow boxes, the bcnl boxes look really cool, but they are pretty expensive for the size, so I've been researching tents.

    I'd like to have one tent for veg, and one tent for flower, and based on everything I've read, people like the Secret Jardin the best (mostly).

    I'd like to be able to grow my maximum of 12 plants, so I was thinking of either of these tents for the veg.

    Question 1: Do you think the smaller of those would be big enough for the veg tent?

    The one I'm looking at for the flowering tent is

    Question 2: Is that tent big enough for 12 plants, or should I go one size up to 8' x 8' x 6.5'

    Question 3: Once the best size of the tents is determined, I'd like to find out which lights (brands, size, etc etc) that you guys would recommend for each of them.

    Question 4: What all (besides lights and carbon filters) would I need to get one of these ready to go? (I'd like to buy it all at the same time so it gets here at roughly the same time.)

    I really appreciate any help you guys can give, I know I'm new at this, but I want to learn, and I've been reading as much as possible to try to avoid making costly mistakes.


    I'll likely be starting off doing soil, since everything I've read said its easier to start there
