Hey /b/ I live in Colorado and want to grow my own marijuana. Maybe 2 or 3 plants. Only problem is I don't know everything I need to go. I just need a list of everything i need to buy in order to start growing pot in soil or hydroponics, which ever is easier. Also I don't know what size grow tent I should buy, can you guys help please?
Depends what size light you use, I would recommend a 3x3 or greater tent with a 400w Hortilux lamp. House it in a glass enclosed reflector and cool it with a Fantech 100 cfm fan. Hydro is actually very easy and you'll get a larger yield in my experience, look at deep water culture (dwc) setups on youtube. Germinate seeds in soil/perlite and then transfer the seedlings to hydro after a week or so.
The other advice I have is keep the plants as close to the light as possible (that's why air-cooling the light is important) and buy a secondary fan (a cheap desk clip-on fan is fine) to recirculate air around the tent. The main fan will cool the light and also exhaust air out of the tent.
I take it back, it's 5 feet tall.
Definitely check out the sidebar of that subreddit. You could even get a smaller tent as well, get a mother plant and just keep taking clones of it and growing perpetually.
