Welcome!

 

You will need a growing space, either a tent or grow room.

Light

Heaters

Exhaust fan with carbon filter for smell

Circulating fan

Medium - soil / Coco etc

Nutrients

 

There's loads of info online so I'd start doing some research. Have a look at some grow diary's on here to see what others are doing.

 

What is your budget? Bear in mind the cost for electric over the grow.

Then make sure you have a safe place to grow.  Don't tell ANYONE what you're up to.  Get some seeds online (there are countless suppliers), do a bit of research or pop down to your local hydro shop for advice, and of course, ask the online community.  You'll need to consider:

  • grow space/grow tent
  • lighting
  • extraction
  • humidity
  • soil/coco etc
  • nutrients
  • water/water management
  • pots/containers
  • odour control
  • air circulation/fresh air supply
  • temperature

It's a bit much to cover in one answer, perhaps others can chime in.  Do some research and community members will be inclined to answer some more specific questions.  Good luck

Hi bud and welcome,

 

Whatever your budget is, double it and add some...

 

Setting up a grow operation is not cheap if you want to do it right, avoid the authorities, rippers and have quality smoke at the end...

 

Environment is the most important part, you need a good extractor fan and carbon filter, preferably on a controller, this will help to control temps and humidity.

 

Start with good quality compost, pots and nutrients designed to grow cannabis, (you can get away with tomato food to start with if money is tight)

 

Decide how much space you have available to grow and how many plants you need to become dealer free.

 

Have a look at the diaries on here (as already mentioned) find a space similar to yours and see what they are using, this space will determine which light you need.

 

There are other bits as you progress but this lot should get you started...keep everything simple and your gob firmly shut... do not tell, sell or create smell...

 

Lastly but not leastly get all your advice and guidance on here, nowhere else...especially from people who work in growshops,

 

they cannot legally discuss things with you and invariably talk a load of bollox as they remove the contents of your wallet...

 

If you subscribe to this site you will recieve some of the best seeds to be had...free... otherwise there are several seed sponsers on here...

 

Good luck bud

Hello and welcome!

 

Im using a pretty budget setup for my first grow. I got virtually all the bits of fleabay the only thing I bought offline was compost. The whole lot cost around £350. Pretty sure that's as cheap as it comes without going DIY.

This is normal in my experience.  The smell comes back during the curing process.

Just keep burping those jars until you're sure they're dry enough to be sealed up for longer periods.  I lost a whole mason jar of prime bud to mould once.  I believe I cried.  After about 2 weeks you'll start to notice that sweet scent coming back.
