Will this set up work?

  1. Hey guys I am a first time grower, and I think i have figured out my set up. I will be growing two plants for now. I am looking to verify if these parts will work fine, or if you guys have similarly priced alternatives. I am on a total budget of $250 USD. I will list the items of. I will be ordering mostly from amazon.

    Your lights will work better for flowering than vegging. For vegging you need 6500 Kelvin lights. You don't say how big your growing space is. You need at least 50 watts of light per square foot of growing space. You're going to need fans to control the heat.
     
  3. use metal halide and hps for 50x better results. you will thank your stars later. and if your reply is but my budget blah blah blah, make it enough. if your gonna do something, do it right man. best of luck :D
     
  4. Guys this is gona be a small scale operation, literally im only going to grow two plants in a closet.... I can not afford anything beyond that limit. 
     
  5. i grow 5-8 plants in a grow box thats 4 1/2 by 2 1/2 feet, very small space but ya gotta learn to utilize. even tho the closet may be small that shouldn't determine the quality of your grow supplies even if it is just two plants, don't you want those 2 plants to be the best they can be rather than skimming by with bad quality and bad yields? do it right man you won't regret it :D if it takes a bit more time it takes a bit more time. patience is key in the garden but prep work is just as vital
     
     
  6. I understand what you are saying, but I think my supplies will work just fine for what im trying lol 
     
  7. Dude, if you cant graciously accept constructive criticism, DON'T ASK FOR IT.
     
    But really handle those lights and get fans for cooling. A humidifier will also be ideal. i keep my box floating around 60% humidity. You're on a budget as well so, you should buy a few of those Mylar car visors(shiny silver bubble wrap looking ones) and line the walls of your space, here you can get them at the dollar store, no joke. will help optimize the relatively low usable output of those cheap CFLs(which i also use. lol) i like mylar over flat white paint. DONT use those nutes for a few weeks. when you do, use about 1/4 of what it says to. you also have nothing listed on there for stealth. I personally dont need it for my setup, but if you have legal issues with growing where you are you're gonna want a carbon filter for the exhaust.


    am i missing anything for him guys?
     
  8. thanks for the advice
     
  9. Anytime man, keep me posted!
     
  10. Also sorry, a carbon filter? 
     
  11. Yeah. To clean to exiting air of dank smell. Unless you don't need to hide that you're growing, then you don't need it
     
  12. Like can you link me an example of one, so I know what to search for. Because just searching carbon filters is a bit unintuitive. 
     
  13. I'm telling you with your set up you will not need a carbon filter. even when your plants flower the odour won't be very powerful. if your allowed to smoke bud within your home with no problems then these plants shouldn't be an issue. I'm guessing you won't be pushing plants past a foot or so I'm assuming...using cfl's anyway. not hating on it just not on the same page as it haha. some intake and outtake fans will do just fine.

    Even 1 plant can stink up the place depending on the strain
