How much SHOULD be spent on a med grow setup for 1 patient?
Just curious on what everybody's idea is $$ wise for an initial grow setup for 1 patient? I see a lot of people posting how expensive it is but if you're only growing for yourself (or caregiving for 1 patient), I don't see why it can't be done for under $600-$700, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Granted you're not going to have environmental controllers and co2 regulation etc.. but mother nature has none of that shit and she grows weed just fine so I consider those things unnecessary luxuries (that I would love to have if the price were 0).
I've seen some amazing shit come out of homemade 150w stealth grow cabs produced for under $200...
Let's hear the opinions fellas.
It can be really cheap! If your not going for perfection like I "try" to do. All you need is some fans a good light ($250) buckets ($2.75) and your medium of choice. use a area in the basement or a bathroom that is not used. If you want to go expensive check my grow journal my room cost about $3000

Digital 1000w light package- $400
Rope ratchets - $15
8in. Inline - $150
Soil/coco/rocks - $70
Pots - $60
nutrients - $160
oscillating fan - $30
Exhale co2 bag - $35
room or tent - $100-$225
8 bulb t5 for veg - $240
Do it right or don't do it at all.
Best advice I can say is do not skimp on lighting. As far as everything else goes, you can spend as much as you want to. The sky is the limit!
"Should" is a very subjective term. I've seen grows consisting of CFLs and coffee cans for pots. If I had a friend that wanted to start growing for as cheap as possible, my grocery list would include a 150w Hps light, a timer, a fan, two 3 gallon pots, two clones, a bag of dirt, 1 quart of grow nutes and 1 quart of bloom nutes. I think this list would cost around $200.
Subjective indeed. I guess everyone's situation will have different needs. I myself will be in a tent and I have no problem waiting until I can invest in the best of the best when it comes to light, hood, ventilation, and carbon filter. I clocked myself somewhere about $1000 if I got everything I have window shopped around for. Definitely gonna be an organic dirt grow. I've been told by the best to keep it simple and go from there. And this shitty hard michigan water requires an indefinite investment in a reverse osmosis setup so add on another $150 for that.

This is where people piss away the most money needlessly, imo. You can pick up a good all purpose, complete fertilizer for a fraction of that.
