Rough estimate for starting a small grow?
    #612241 - 03/10/12 12:42 AM (4 years, 8 months ago)

I just want to get a rough idea of how much it might cost for me to start. I was thinking 4 plants, I could start with even less than that if necessary. What kind of budget should I have to get a good little indoor grow going? Thanks in advance :thumbup:

Mmm, I dunno. I could do it for less.

If you want HPS lighting (you do), thats gonna be one of your biggest things.

If you have a room you can use, thats gonna save you too.

If you have a lot of the stuff you need, I'd say $200 is realistic. If you wanna use CFL, you could get by with $150.

If you wanna go balls out and do it right the first time, Miscusi is more correct.

Why should that mean it isn't real?

Yeah, this is a very vague question.  It all depends on what you want.  If you have money to spend get an HID system and a vented hood and go with soil.  That will be a great start.

600 watt will do great for 4 plants.


This is a complicated question and without more info from you VERY hard to narrow down a price.

My set up goes around 1000 bucks.
That's lights, fans, other equipment needed, and nutrients.

Alright, I'll get a little more specific, I have a room for it, a closet or a shed if I need the space. I'd like to start right, and get what I need to do that, even if it means starting with less if I have to. I'm not sure if I want to go soil or hydro just yet. $300-400 for 4 plants? Maybe start with 2. I was thinking I'd start with 2 clones, and then get 2 seeds later on when I expand it.

Would it be realistic to grow in my closet and prevent the smell from getting out too much? Would making the door airtight do the trick?

My bad, I have a lot of questions, I just want to do everything right from the start.

inline fan and carbon filter will take care of the smell.
You want the room to have no light leaks, but have an intake no fan needed here, but the fan is needed to exhaust the heat and exchange air with in the grow space.

OK.

Soil/Coir - $25
250w HPS - $120 ($70 for 150w, $140 for 400w)
OR ^ CFL/Tube fluoro w/ fixtures - $25
Nutrients - ~$50 (much fluctuation)

Thats the absolute bare minimum, and you're at anywhere from $100 to $200+. Thats not including timers and other stuff I'm sure I'm forgetting. You'll want to 1ook into fans, I just ordered a 6 inch exhaust for $25...but you can get by with small fans or just shit you have in your house if you're just experimenting anyway.

My suggestion is to maybe start with the CFL if you don't want to make a huge jump into a big investment. It'll allow you to get a feel for how the plants grow and it won't break the bank. You'll still get some nice smoke if you do everything right. Once you get that down, invest in a 400w HPS. Then you can still use the CFLs you bought for vegging and its not a  wasted purchase.

Hmm.. I wanted to have indoor to try to get the best possible results, but I think it's worth reconsidering. I have a cannabis card and I live in California so I could easily grow outside, and that will do until I can get a better budget together. What's a good budget for a 4 plant outdoor grow?

$50 for nutrients, $25 for soil.
