Hi all, was after some much needed advice. Been growing outside for the last 6 years, but the kids are growing up so I have decided to have a crack at hydro for stealth reasons. Was wondering if individuals experienced in hydro would be willing to suggest me a set up. My criteria is as follows:

 

1. Would like to keep the whole set up, nutrients, pots, growing medium, tent, lights etc. under $500

2. Happy just to grow 1 at a time (I'm a weekend warrior)

3. Grow space I have is about 1m x 1m x 1.6m

4. Want the set up and ongoing use to be as simple as possible (Was thinking hand watering with a run to waste set up).

 

 

A mate has suggested the following:

 

1. Tent

(Was thinking the 80 x 80 x 160, could squeeze in the 1.2 x 1.2 x 2 if needed)

 

2. Light

3. Ventilation, odor etc.

4. Smart pots, coco and Australian Advanced Nutes. Not sure if I need specific nutes for coco or the standard ones will be fine.

 

Any suggestions/feedback would be much appreciated.

Go to mars hydro or viparspectra for an led
Light on the cheap
Don't buy unbranded shit off eBay
They are around the same price as mars and if it fucks up its under warranty

Thanks for the replys. So is a 300W sufficient for a 80 x 80 x 160 or should I be looking at a 450 or 600.

They tell you the specifics on the site but around 50w per square foot will do. The mars 300w are actually using like 100w maybe a bit more so they're only good for 2 square feet

I dont mind the vipars, decent bang for ya buck, not the strongest in flower but if you only indulge on the weekend it will do the job nicely, my first buds were nice as under it, just not a big yield.

That is poor advice.

Avoid that cheap rubbish..
