Weed set up for under $500

One thing that scares people away from growing weed is the startup costs, well I'm going to go through and show you that you can too can have an affordable grow setup!!  I am a amazon fan, so I always look for my supplies on amazon first.  One of the first things you will need is a place to grow, be it a closet, spare bedroom, basement, attic, bedroom, etc.  I personally have a spare room in my workshop to grow, I used a panda plastic to line the walls and floor for optimum lighting.

So first things first you need a good place to grow, I recommend this grow tent by amazon, if I hadnt of gone with the panda plastic this is what I was going to purchase.



or you can get panda plastic like I did if you can dedicate a whole room to growing.



Next major purchase you need is lights, now I prefer to use LED grow lights, I have one 300 watt light and a 600 watt light and it handles what I grow, and my electricty bill only went up about 10 dollars more a month.  I am a fan of these grow lights, they stay cool, have built in fans, come with the hanging apparatis, and have the switch for bloom and veg.



These lights are 300 watts, you would have room to hang four if you want, at that price you wold have 1200 watts of light for under 200 dollars!



Next on the list is your nutrients for you ladies, I recommend getting nutrients from the ILGM store, if your a first time grower I recommend the starter kit of nutrients and a mix of seeds or get just auto-flowering seeds.

Increased yield with Flower Power

Soil is just as important as your nutrients and seed genetics, I recommend fox farms ocean forest.  that has all you need to start your seedlings.

So now lets get our totals:
grow tent: 139.99
lights: 200.00
nutrients (starter kit): 40.00
seeds:80.00
dirt: 40.00 estimate
under 500.00

aquaponoic growing

Aquaponics is the art of combining aquaculture (growing fish in tanks) with hydroponics (growing plants in water). It's sort of like organic hydroponics! 

In an aquaponic growing system, fish are raised in a tank and the nutrients they produce (contained in their poop and produced by their gills) gets converted by bacteria into nutrients for the plants. The plant roots help clean the water before it is re-circulated back to the fish tank, completing the cycle. Aquaponics creates a tiny ecosystem - fish make nutrients for cannabis while cannabis cleans the water for the fish! Although fish are the most common species used for aquaponics, other aquatic creatures like shrimp, crayfish or prawns can also be used. Both edible fish and ornamental fish can be used successfully in an aquaponic system. Generally you want to pick a species that is hardy and can tolerate crowding. Tilapia is an edible fish that adapt very well to aquaponics, and koi or goldfish are great choices f…
