Introduction - New Here

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

 

After just browsing this site a lot, I thought I'd best create an account. I'm completely fresh to the growing scene, with no practical knowledge. I've spent plenty of hours reading various forum posts, video guides and e-books but feel that I've only scratched the surface. Please be kind! 

 

So... I've just gone ahead and bought a load of equipment. Perhaps I've been a little over ambitious in my purchasing... :rolleyes: I've bought a 2.4m x 1.2m x 2m grow tent with the intention of partitioning it off to a 1.2m x 1.2m 900W (450W true draw) LED tent for vegging and a 1.2m x 1.2m 600w HPS for a flowering. The idea of it is to have a constant supply in regular intervals. But more on that perhaps on another thread. 

 

Anyway, look forward to contributing and also look forward to reading your feedback in the months to come.

Welcome Wourgh :thumsup:

 

 

JamJar - Thank you. Have you posted anything about it? It'd be great to see what you've got going on. I want to be LED all the way but couldn't afford 2 x MarsHydro II 900s when purchasing the entire set up. I'll have to wait till next month. What LEDs do you run? 

 

stoned_ape - Thanks dude! It's been a long time coming. :bong:

@JamJar Thanks mate, I'll have a look! With regards to lighting I've already dumped £350 odd on this 900w equivalent. I hope it's worth it...

 

@Slugums Thanks for the welcome! 

 

@Whambud I'll bear that in mind. After creating a thread on Design and Locations, it has been mentioned that ventilation might be an issue. It's been recommended to me that instead of 4" out, I should go 6" in and 8" out using an "RVK" fan as opposed to a TT style fan? (Unsure of what that means yet). I'll be sure to link you in my diary once I get things set up and look forward to your input! 

 

@vortex A friend of mine has already planted and got to the seedling stage with a Super Lemon Haze of some description. Going to give that a go and see what happens. If it lives, cool, if it doesn't, oh well. I'm not going in with high hopes on this one as I'm sure I'll make a couple of mistakes whilst learning.

@Wourgh for ur size tent even with LEDs id say 6" ruckfan at the minimum really. With decent Carbon filter ofc 

 

That led light u got there will do the job just fine mate and dont let anyone tell u different. Proven to work. It will take a while to learn all the basics of growing and learning the traits of ur Lights. You should have it all dialed in pretty soon :)
