Newbee here! First grow!

Post by slayking0113 » Wed Apr 03, 2019 9:36 am

Good morning, mates!
I am new here, and seeking for some help / advice!

I got some seeds from my friend this week, it is an auto flower, still not sure what's actual strain it is, lol. Now it will be my first grow! Quite excited and a little confused.
Currently I got a 4x4 feet tent, several 5 gallon fabric pots, seeds, several bottles of the nutrients from my friend. I will post a photo of what exactly i got over here.

For the lighting, I am looking for a LED grow light which can suit a 4x4 area well. Currently quite confused about which LED grow light to choose.
I will post some lights I have checked online before over here, and it will be great if you can recommend me some good lights. My budget is around 600usd for the light.

Btw, I have already get some small accessories like the hanger, clipped fan, timer, ph meter, temp & humidity meter.

I don't have an exhaust fan with a carbon filter, but that's not a big problem. I will by one online and that will be arranged very soon.

Well, that's all my situation, I hope everything can be settle down by this weekend. And it will be a great honor for me to share my dairy over here with you guys!

Here I post the nutrients i got, I swear to god this is not an advertise.
Just to let you know what I got. And I am still looking for the lights for my tent.

And to be honest, i have never touch such things like this and it was given for free. So I will be appreciate if someone can tell me when to use those things.

Welcome aboard, mate.

I am guessing you're in Canada or UK.
If you're in the UK, check out our sponsor... invisible-sun-led-68/
They do great lights. I've tried two others, and these ones are the best I've used. They are also silent, which is a great bonus if noise is an issue for you.

I've not used the nutes you've got, but some others on here may have and will be able to help.

Hello buddy and welcome to the forum.
As said above invisivle sun do pretty cool lights so checkt them out.
Extraction you will need 6" L1 fan ideally for that tent with a filter to match. I am pretty happy with Viper Carbon filters ao if you can check them out.
Nutrients. What you got there looks like root stimulator, amino acids and some flower boosters. You will need some base nutrients. I take it you will be growing in coco if you bought ph and ec meters. We use canna nutrients mostly but plenty others out there like advanced nutrients and etc.

If you got any questions just ask mate. And if you are to buy thinge I'd suggest you ask before buying them :)

Appreciate your reply!
I will go check the light first!
And for the nutes, I think I got the answers, and still need to check when I use them.
It’s Thursday already I do need to speed it up!

Yes I will take a look. I also received some recommendation for the DIY lights. Will check both.
And thanks for the advise on nutes. I will check when I start to use them.

slayking0113 Welcome to the forum as bulls said you just have additives and no base nutes. House and garden do a grow guide that could aid when to use them. I would not recommend using the base nutrients or boosters recommended amounts in the guide as it is often over the top. best to start off low and work up to the amounts in the guide and see how the plants go.

As for lights invisiblesun led have seen some decent grows using these. Also i have seen some good ones using the Ceramic metal halide lamps.
Might be worth looking at both options. Hps is the standard but summer is nearly here so heat will be a issue then.

I also checked DIY lights, the PCB panel with Meanwell drivers. It’s the most simple light I have seen so far. At least from the design it is quite simple and easy.

It's quiet an expensive light buddy.
Looks decent though. Are you in the US? I am sure you can grab a few decent lights from Invisible sun for that price .

Good evening mates! :) It's been a while.

It's quite busy last week and thanks for all your recommendation.
I have reviewed several brands and finally chose one from the brand Marshydro. I ordered 2 piece model SP-250. They were shipped from China. 600 USD including shipping cost. Extra 15 Euro for the duty.

Good luck with them lights mate. I've used them Mars leds a few years ago and they were good lights. Only problem was the customer service with them. I know a few including mine went in the bin. Hopefully they gave improved over the years :Stoned:

Seems like I choose the right brand. And that's a pity for the bad customer service! If I have the light problem in future. I will surely find them.
