Hey guys, my state just made it legal for me to grow and was looking for some advice. Primarily looking at this kit to start and plan on getting it this coming Friday https://myhigrow.com/product/myhigrow-4x8-grow-tent-complete-kit-with-roof-grow-tent-4x8-960-watt/
Is this adequate for 12 plants?
Plan on going with autos and have made good use of royal queen seeds holiday sale and have a good mixture of Northern lights, North thunderfuck, blue cheese, fat banana, white widow, watermelon, and triple g on the way.
Lastly has anyone used Coast of Maine soil? Looks like a pretty solid set up and should only need nutrients during the flowering process? Thanks in advance
Late on the draw here but:
4x8 is good for 8-18 plants, depending on how you like to grow. Your might see some problems with height restrictions with a 6' tent. I would suggest 12-18 smaller plants to avoid height issues.
Eg.10x20 Gorillas with extensions putting them @ just under 8' ceilings is our standard tented room. These grows would be manageable at 7ft for some strains.
Autos are a hard way to enter into cultivation. Growing photo period allows a better understanding and control.
Pre-charged soils are usually well balanced but always require monitoring, and occasionally supplemental feeding.
On the other hand some soils are too hot for younger plants.
Charged soils are great for low-attention grows;
so running a more inert medium and learning about your plants needs will give you a better footing and a more interactive grow.
Coast of Maine has a long line of products, and look like a good company to support.
As for feeding; watching your plants carefully as well as referring to feed schedules, while taking into account any pre-charges is a standard method of gardening. As previously mentioned: some pre-charged soils will be hot enough to kill a seedling while others might only have enough nutrients to support a seedling.
