All good advice. Mind you, like politics, all pests are local. Very different pest profile in Melbourne than say Darwin!
And of course you will have a very different set of problems growing indoors compared with outside no matter what the climate.
On fungi, high humidity and low temperatures at night are ideal germinating conditions for rusts - in a Sydney tent, rust has been a problem for me until I started using a dehumidifier. You can use a potassium organic spray - we use it on young tomato plants, but it's very very acidic - at normal strength, any droplets that sit long enough on your growing tips will kill them - been there, done that. Nasty. Half strength and make sure you shake the plants down every time.
For bugs I use a natural chemical called Pyrethrum. It comes from dandelions
On the pyrethrum: One source, Tanacetum cinerariifolium is a chrysanthemum although it looks like a daisy - dandelions are good for fresh tea or roasted and ground (coffee substitute during the war!) - like Caro.
