Grow tents

Do grow tents come with all the necessary items? or do you have to buy them seperate? Or do they at least come with their own carbon filter?

grow tents come with the tent, and poles to put the tent up.

you have to buy your own reflector, ballast, filter and fan.

I don't know if I would go with a straight sativa for your first venture. Maybe a sativa dominant cross would be cool. Sativas are more finicky and take longer to flower than others. Plus they take up a lot of room if you don't know too much about training and techniques like that.
Grow whatever you want to grow, but always read the flowering times, indoor/outdoor, and pay attention to whether it is a small, medium, or tall plant in terms of height relative to your tent that you end up choosing.

Good luck brother! you came to the right place for friendly advice and expert knowledge. These dudes know their shit!

:baaaam:

EDIT: I forgot to add, I know about the sativas cause my first flowering plant right now is a sativa dominant and damn I wish I would have flowered her a lot sooner. Plus its tricky getting the nutes just right on a sativa. Hawk has told me with nutes that "less is more", always remember that because you could end up killing a beautiful plant just by trying to feed it.

The same brand (Ipower) of switchable digital ballasts are available on ebay brand new from seller "hpsgrowlightstore" for 131.99 shipping included.  For 11 dollars more you can get both the MH and HPS bulb included with the light kit.

I am going to be picking up one of these 600 watt digital light kits with in a week or two to see what they are all about.  Just got an Ipower brand 6 inch, 430 CFM inline fan and I'm pretty happy with it.  Have you ever researched with those Ipower brand ballasts and bulb kits yet?

Couple guys in my area had problems with I power ballasts.  Said they were junk.  I stayed clear when I ordered my lights.

But I personally have not used any of there products.:shrug:

I ordered my 1k watters and hoods on ebay.  No name digital ballast.  Took the chance knowing I would be screwed with warrenty by not purchasing at local grow store but I saved a couple hundred on two lights ballast hoods and bulbs!  Got two harvests out of them so they payed for themselves. If I ever have an issue now ill go to the local store and purchase a decent ballast with a warrenty.  Just my 2 cents.  Good luck!

These Ipower ballasts from ebay seller "hpsgrowlights" are actually covered by a 1 year warranty.  Buyer has to pay reshipping though. 

No disrespect intended, but I am not sure how much stalk I can take into "a couple of guys" who by rumor alone state these ballasts are junk.

How well do you know the people who said that they thought these ballasts were junk, and what did they said they didn't like about them??

I asked a fellow grower this morning, he said he bought an I power and it hummed a lot ran hotter than his other ones and it quit after a month and a half.  Like a said before, this is coming from someone elses mouth not mine.

I will say ive purchased hundreds of items on ebay and never had any "good luck" with warrenty on ebay.  Sometimes its ok just turn around time and shipping costs will kill you if your ahy distance from shipper.

Also like said before... I took the chance a few months ago and mine are still pumping out the dank bud!

And the shipping on a ballast will be super expensive.

Hey man.  Thanks for going out of your way and talking to your friend about those ballasts.  I appreciate that!  Those ballasts running hot and or humming too loud are two of my major concerns. 

I'v made about a hundred or so purchases on ebay as well and have been fortunate enough to not have to make use of a warranty.  It would only cost me about 20$ to return a ballast back to them from where I am at if need be.  I hardly feel like 20$ for return shipping is going to "kill" me.
