Hi everyone as some of you know my dad has inoperable lung cancer (both lungs) he has had it for up to 2 years with no symptoms. It's now within the localised lymph nodes and he started chemo yesterday. He's a fit and healthy (runner) 53 year old.

My dad was diagnosed on my birthday a few weeks ago, it has devastated the whole family. We are very positive about the cannabis oil and looking forward to our grow.

I am looking to buy a grow kit (not too big) for 3-4 plants what do you think of this? I am using the CBD stunt haze but there are no soecs on whether this plant will be too tall?

Or should I buy separately?

tents ok, lights/reflectors crap and fans are rubbish. BUY SEPERATELY from different sites If i was you, those basic grow kits are never much cop as its either the lights, reflector, or "Air" which suffers for the Price of cheapness. Believe me, you do not want to buy shit only to upgrade and spend more later becuase you cant get temps right or light isnt sufficient for your space

i would get a tent, choose your fans and get a 600watter not a 400 for that tent.

I would also use something like an Icarus box for your light and have you outake running through your light to reduce temps.

I would go 6 inch RVK L1 for out and a 4 inch RVK L1 for intake....all dependent on when/where you grow of course.

3-4 plants should be fine, but you could grow more dependent on médium etc.

Gl and best wishes to your Father.

Hey you are right we decided to buy separate a good rhino carbon filter, trying to get LED lighting from a friend (worth a try) :)

Do I need an office fan for air too?

One thing I am worried about is height space became I have the skunk haze it only says on the specifications that it's a tall plant but no numbers my grow tent will be 100 x 100 x 1000 cm

I'm hoping all will go well too!

forget about LED lighting mate, waste of time. They may get better but for flowering they are NOT as good as HPS, nowwhere near. HPS is best for growth and tight flowers.......

You may want to re read the tent dimensions.

HPS not LED.

as hiphop said i'd have a look at those dimensions again as a 10metre tall tent sounds a tad on the tall size...

if your talking about LED's and rhinos i guess your willing to spend a reasonable amount to get a good spec setup

so heres what i suggest:

- go for a dr120 II (if you've got the space) - £139.99 - http://www.greenshorticulture.co.uk/categories/Grow-Tents/Secret-Jardin-Grow-Tents/Dark-Street-DS120-II/

measures 120cm x 120cm x 200cm, or you can get a 180cm tall version

- get a 600w hps parabolic - £129.99 - http://www.greenshorticulture.co.uk/categories/Grow-Lights/Grow-Light-Systems/Parabolic-Grow-Light/

(you can get a better reflector if you like, however this is perfectly adequate and a lot of good growers use them)

- a 6'' RUCK Fan & Rhino Pro Filter for extraction - (£214) cheaper alternatives available

http://www.greenshorticulture.co.uk/categories/Growroom-Products/Fan-&-Filter-Deals/RUCK-Fan-&-Rhino-Pro-Filter-Packages/

- id get a 5 inch RUCK Fan for the intake as its the same price as a 4inch - £68.99 - http://www.greenshorticulture.co.uk/categories/Growroom-Products/Growroom-Fans/RUCK-Fans/

4 plants, 11litre pots in a Scrog :yinyang:

p.s do i have to break the links to a sponsored site?

good advice here mate, listen and save yourself some time, hassle and moe expenditure because you didnt buy right first time. I know. When i first bought my set up, money no object, I then had to ugrade fans, ducting, air cooled hoods etc cost me another good few hundred and more hassle.

Blankets reccomendations are spot on.

Only thing different I would do is have larger fans, but thats because I suffer heat problems with 1200w lights and a suntrap conservatory where my tent is so ambient is hot.

Thanks guys!

Only problem I have is ventilation will a fan be enough or do I need fresh air? I'll be growing in a spare room.

Regarding plant numbers, to get the most out of your light you must fill your tent. If you go for 3 plants then you will have to veg those 3 plants for quite a while before you flower to fill your tent. If you decided to increase your numbers to say 9 then you wouldn't need to veg your plants as long. Unfortunatly if the worst was to happen the police could be harder on you because they use plant numbers to decide how big the grow operation is.

Because you are growing regular seeds you might only get a few females so this may determin how many plants you flower, if it was me I'd flower all the female plants I got to speed things up.

ventilation is one of the most important things, smells, temperature, co2

you need to extract the old air and input fresh air, is there any way you could vent out of a window? as theres stealthy way you can do it...

My seeds are females, we have decided to grow in our garage it will be easier to modify than inside my house.

I believe I'll be able to plant all 5 inside the grow tent, had to get a smaller one due to the height and space within - 90 x 90 x 180cm the top of my garage is 185cm. Also I wouldn't be able to use the opening at the top for the carbon filter but I could always use the side opening? Was going to drill out a hole at the side of the garage to filter air in and out that way

Would this timer be ok?

yeah using the side opening is fine, no different to the top...

and the timer does what it says on the tin i guess, switches up to 600w so yeah would be fine,

what light are you going for?

I was given a 600w HPS light with ballast, timer. Just need my rhino carbon filter kit with fan, ducting etc.

Getting a Ph tester for my soil too.

Grow tent should be here soon.

Would a 100mm filter be ok??

Do not concern yourself with ph as you are growing in mud. Mud buffers the ph so no adjustment is needed.
