Starting your first grow or even adding an additional room for a different growth stage can be an expensive venture.

The grow tent is the grow room and the most important part of this guide. If you are simply growing for yourself and not on a commercial scale, grow tents offer numerous advantages. The biggest advantage to a grow tent is that you don't have to take on any construction or make structural changes to your living space. Also at any time, you can choose to move your grow room in a matter of 30-40 minutes rather than a trying to tear down and rebuild a full grow room construction. View the Best 4x4 Grow Tents.

Ventilation & Filtration
It is essential to keep air moving throughout your grow room. Filtration is a big factor when growing weed indoors. Depending on where you live it may still be illegal so masking smell is very important. Also, having everything smell like fresh growing weed is just not a great thing, even if we all love it, we may not want others to know.
The right nutrient balance for feeding your developing plants is as important, if not most important than any other piece of the puzzle. We have been growing indoors and out for 15 years and know for a 100% fact that simpler is better and also results in less problems in the future. This kit contains nutrients both macro and micro that are formulated to work together. For best results, always use slightly less than recommended mix. Always check your pH before and after feeding to get an understanding of how your feeding is affecting your reservoir. This will also help you better understand your plants nutrient uptake and depending on the health of the plant whether it prefers heavy feedings or light feedings.
