    First timer grow questions

    Hey all, Best Free Adult Websites Award Nominees
    I'm kind of lost with all the options and information out there. Hoping I can get some answers and just get started.
    My plan is to get a 4x4 tent (vivosun 48"x48")
    And Vipar spectra 1200 lights.
    What other equipment do I need to get started?
    For seeds I'm also not sure where to begin. Just for ease I think I'd go with auto flowering. I use medical cannabis for pain so a strong strain is necessary. Any suggestions?
    Anything else I need to make sure I have to begin?
    Thanks so much!

    Have you read anything at all on the main site? All of the basic grow info you need can be found there and much much more and it's laid out in a very easy to follow format. Once you've digested that then you can come back for clarification if you're still not clear on something. We're all home growers here not professionals or instructors but we are happy to advise if you've done your homework. Welcome to GWE and Happy Pharming!

    My filtered tap water runs over 7.5 pH but the soil microbes
    make pH correction unnecessary

      Yup, tons of know-how and stuff on that main page. Where you at? Might be a part of the seed purchase decision
      Learned a lot this year. pH and whiteflies are issues that need controlling. Maybe an auto over January.....hmmmm...


        Autos, you wont read me recommending autos for a first grow. Why, when (not if) you have an issue there is 0 time to fix it, the clock is running. However with photos one can fix an issue and move on to a good harvest.

        Bruce Banner 3 for spinal pain here, then others for flavors etc.
