First Grow, Need Advice

Recommended Posts

I'm planning my first grow after researching the subject fairly intensely and here's what I've come up with so far. The goal is to grow enough for personal consumption which would equate to ~1oz/month with some spare for friends etc. I'm thinking 2-3 plants in a 2x2 tent, which I'll train with some topping, LST and a scrog.

Setup: Secret Jardin Darkroom II Pro DR60 24"x24"x64": http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004NGBX1C?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_2&smid=A1T46V3DHID5FV

4 x 100w (240w true power) cob LEDs as per LEDwizard guide here:https://www.reddit.com/r/Head2HeadMG/comments/2lvnul/guide_ledwizards_1000_true_watt_led_light_part_1/

I also plan on supplementing the flowering stage with 4 x 28w CFL bulbs, about halfway up the tent walls to help with light penentration. I've decided to grow in coco coir with Canna Coco A+B as well as Cannazym, Rhizotonic and PK 13/14. I may need CalMag, depending on the water quality here. I wanted a straightforward nute schedule with nutes that were readily available in my area and this seems to fit the bill perfectly. I've ordered some Strain Hunters Money Maker and Green House Super Lemon Haze Feminised Seeds to try to start with(1 indica and 1 sativa dominant).

As far as ventilation goes, I'm thinking I'll need a carbon filter with a 150mm inline fan for exhaust, though I'm not sure if I'll need a fan on the inlet. I plan to put a small fan inside the tent to help with circulation.

Obviously I'll need a PH kit and a PPM meter. Is there anything else I'm missing or should do differently? I'd love to hear people's thoughts and I'm super excited to get started :)
