Stuff i have
-Area 3x3x3 area where i can pull a shelf and its 3 feet taller

-2 Tupperware containers that can hold about 4 pots

-a halogen light holder but no light

-6 great looking seeds that are already starting sprout in some napkin and water and dark area

-A few soil pots in the shed maybe... for sure a few milk jugs or 3 litter bottles..




Stuff im not sure about

-what type of soil i should get thats cheap and good for a small 2-3 plant setup

-what bulb i should get for the foot and half light

- and just a few links to stuff i can look at to help me through my process

i don't mean to be a negative nancy but there is no way to grow weed indoors for under $20.  your soil alone will cost $10+.  do you have any florescent lights lying around?  Halogen bulbs do not produce light in the proper spectrum to grow plants.

Bro, if you try to grow those seeds on a $20 budget, I'm afraid you're going to end up completely wasting them.

My advice would be to start saving your money, and buy the right equipment, one peice at a time...

At the least, get a decent sized CFL from Wal-Mart, a fan, and a bag of some decent soil (I got a bag of Fox Farm's from Beaver Bark for $20). You MIGHT be able to get away with not buying the fan JUST yet, but you'll probably want one within a week. Oh, and DO NOT buy Miracle-Gro soil!!! It will give your plants a funky taste, and will probably end up burning them, too...

My roommate just bought the last 6 of the 200 watt equiv. CFL's that they had at our walmart for like 12.50 each...  One might do to start, I suppose, but you'll want more than one very shortly; I'd say four or five at least.


Honestly man, I wish you hadn't already started those seeds... It'll be a true test to see if you can get anything decent off of these. But, since the deed is done, there's no bemoaning spilt milk! Let's see if we can get you on the right track with this.

Here's a couple of grow logs that might be helpful to read: Critik's CFL grow and Revman's low-budget grow

Can you post pics of the grow area you have? I'd like to see exactly what you're working with, if possible...

My best run so far

Welcome to the Growery :thumbup:



Now that aside the 20 dollar thing isn't gonna happen. :shrug:



Unless that space is located in full sunlight and you used cheap soil from a hardware store and pray they have enough food to make it. (They won't) :facepalm:
