      To answer your questions in order:     That really is fairly small, suitable for 1 plant only. Tall is good, after you install carbon filter and light hangings it's amazing how little vertical space your left with. Taller the better imo. Could get two plants in there possibly but I'd personally plump for growing one well than two badly.     Not bad thing if your a beginner. Personally prefer photo periods. Just remember after the starter cup you'll need to transplant into the end game pot rather than potting up.     If you need advice on what nutrients / soil to buy you'll need to elaborate a little on your plans. But nothing fancy is needed, I've grown successfully with basic soil purchased from Wilkos.      This will suffice for a tent that size. Air extraction is primarily to replenish CO2 used by the plant. Providing your fan has the capability to extract the total tent volume in under 5 minutes this is adequate. I've just adopted a second tent which has a 4" inline extraction far bigger than yours. Additional benefits of air extraction are to remove excess heat / moisture but I'd suggest a good quality 4" fan would easily cope with the tent size you've mentioned. There are too many bullshit calculations online regards removing 10% air flow rate for every twist, 15% for every corner. The only thing that may impede air flow is the carbon filter. Don't fuss over this, 4" inline fan is fine.     So many to choose from. Just don't bother with oscillating fans. Not required. If you're going for a 6" fan likely you'll only need one for a tent that size.     Find this hard to believe. Acts like a 800w HPS ? I've seen similar cheap lights, if the current draw is only 100w it's pulling under half an amp. Sure it'll be fine for a tent that size but don't kid yourself it'd replace a 800w unit. Need to elaborate here really on the lighting for me to comment further.     Ideal but ideal for what. Seedling stage / Veg stage / Flowering stage all have different requirements regarding humidity and temperature.  Temperature is a bit on the warm side but I'd rather have it slightly too warm than too cold.   Quite hard to answer specifically any of your questions as you've provided very limited information and no pictures. May I suggest starting a grow diary, anything you want advice on show pictures and give as much information as you can. I suspect your just starting out so I understand your pain. But a pictorial diary is the very best way to get the most from these forums as it holds other growers interests.   Kind regards,   Poisonata

      If you top the photo several times it will slow down veg and yield more in the end.

      Best thing to do is read or watch some videos on growing basics, once you start understanding what is required you’ll realise that you just need to take your time and gather the right info otherwise you’ll be making expensive mistakes.
