    beginner needs advice with setup


    0 Not allowed!
    hey guys, I am gathering all tools required to start growing but I want to double check with you guys to make sure I am getting the right equipement for the job.

    so far this is the stuff I have bought:

    1- 2x P900 LED lights from platinum LED
    2- a 6 inch hyperfan (315 CFM) intake fan with a carbon filter
    3- 8 inch hyperfan (710 CFM) exhaust fan with a carbon filter
    4- a basic standing oscillating fan I got for cheap from kijiji
    5- hygrometer/thermometer
    6- aluminum duct tape
    7- zip ties and hanging pullies for lights/filters
    8- gardening tools
    9- seeds (feminized photoperiod sativa dominant strains)

    The stuff I am planning to buy:
    1- 6' x 6' x 6'11" tent
    2- timer for lights
    3- soil mix and fabric pots
    4- ph meter for soil
    5- netting for SCROG

    does this stuff sound right? is the tent size good for the lights? is the ventilation enough?

    Thanks

    EDIT: I'm terribly sorry looks like I have posted this in the wrong section. can admin please put it in "grow room setup and design"

    ...yeah, i can't speak to the lights bro but what i can tell you is that you definitely don't need a carbon scrubber for the intake and you probably don't need the intake fan either, i've been growing for 12 years and i have never used an intake fan.

    ...do you have any idea what you're looking to reap from your grow? ...is this for personal consumption, for commercial gain or a bit of both?

    ...i ask because knowing what you expect will help determine what you buy for equipment.

    ...like i said i've been at this for a dozen years and for me it's always been mostly about feeding my head but i do grow more than i need, i average about 12 to 15 ounces per cycle in my 4x4 and my goal is to do this as simply as possible, i like easy and drama free.

    ...anyway if you're interested you can check out my random thread linked in my signature.

    peace, SOG

    Wow! awesome plants dude!

    yeah I want to grow 4 plants at a time for use by myself and my girlfriend. I took the smaller intake fan and filter because we have a lot of house plants and I didn't want mites and bugs to get in the tent.
    I did a lot of research on lights and I got the understanding that the lights are equivalent of 1000W HID each. I just have to be careful I don't bleach buds and burn plant with it.

    You can buy a prefilter or bug screen for the intake hyperfan. No carbon filter necessary. There is a small Velcro attached one too, great item.

    Proven to catch all bugs, mold and mildew while being mildew and UV resistant. It easy slips on and off in-line fans with minimal air restriction. Used for Carbon Filters as well.

    If you bought the Hyperfan climate control with your hyper fans, you will appreciate being able to control both them fans from that single device. Pretty sweet option.

    I, truthfully, always prefer a carbon filter very well all the smell that plants produce.

    Yes, but if it’s not necessary, the BUG screen works very well.
    It actually also has a carbon filter inside.

    It’s a common product, very handy and inexpensive.

    Glad to hear it. That was an expensive if unnecessarily costly investment.

    You only need to worry about Odor escaping the tent. But it’s nice to have uncontaminated cleaned intake air, especially during budding. I spray my plants a couple of times a day with purrified ice water. They love it. All dust or mostly all air born contaminants get rinsed off.
