  1. Im looking to start growing my own cannabis for personal use. Ive been looking online and was thinking about buying a Hydroponic grow box for around $500 for 2 plants. Im wondering are there any other ways to do it discreetly? Ill be putting the setup in my closet which has no circulation and im in an apartment complex, am i screwed? Id also like the smell to be kept to a minimum. any advice id appreciate thanks
  2. hello mate, if your gonna start growing do baby steps mate, don't do the same mistake i did, i started with aero and fcked up 2 grows, that's 20 bagseeds (200$).

    My advice is just start with light soil mix see how u're doing and then try thinking abt hydro
  3. so just a soil light and fan grow? get my feet wet. any books or dvds you'd recommend im trying to educate myself before i do this i dont wanna grow ass
  4. no air and the plant wont grow you will need some sort of fresh air also for minimizing the smell you will need a good exhaust system with a carbon filter and a fan.
  5. how much $ is a good exhaust fan? How much $ will i need to get started i have a budget of around 600-700
  6. that would be plenty!!!! you can make a decent grow are with that amount of cash
  7. im really worried about the smell i want to be as discreet as possible
  8. just make sure you invest in a good carbon filter which is usually about 50-200 depending on your size of grow. the fans are usually a little more expensive than the filter. here is what my list w/ prices looks like..

    filter 175$
    exhaust fan 195$
    5x5x7 tent 270$
    1000w hps 300$
    then still need buckets, soil, ferts, ro water filter, ph tester, thermometer w/ humidity measurement.

    so my cost is going to be about 1500 for everything, to upgrade from what i have. 700 would be a good budget for a smaller grow though, just depends on what your looking for.
