Hi m0dr0b3s,


Your question is one with many answers.

There are several "types" of basic setup, some more complex than others.


Lighting is easy to answer, for a cupboard grow, go with a 400w HPS light. The 400 watters are easier to keep cool than any of the large lights. If you can, get a "Son-T-Argo" bulb and a "Super"-ballast, that will provide you with a better light spectrum for your plants.


Now, onto the main question: What system are you going to grow with?


The easiest system for newbie growers is to use something simple like CoCo or Soil, if you really want you can use a reticulated setup with a "neutral" medium such as Clayballs or Perlite.


Have a read of the following threads and come back once you've made your decisions and have some-more detailed questions for us to answer:


- Pipeman's first grow.


- Instink's first grow.


- Allhail's questions about his setup.


- Luke's thread on a Retic Hydro setup.


Hope this helps!
