    This time around I decided to do an all auto grow, as there's a bunch of people overcharging (min $25/g,) and like last time, I'm SICK of paying premium prices for sub-par product. Unfortunately I do not have any pics to show atm, as I have yet to even order a single item on my grow list, but to give you an idea, here's some links:

    This is the system I plan on using. It's a bit pricey, but I'd rather not have to construct a system myself this time around, so that I can focus more attention towards the plants. Stupid, I know, but it seemed like last time there was more maintenance involved than I cared to deal with. I won't list every link, but I will also be ordering General Hydroponics' FloraNova grow & bloom.

    Since this will be a very small setup, with plants that are meant to stay short & begin flowering almost immediately, I decided to use a 150W HPS from Sun System.

    150W HPS

    Basically what I want to know is will this light be sufficient for 6 autos? I plan on either purchasing or building a grow tent, as to restrict the amount of space, as well as control temperature & humidity more efficiently. As for beans, well, I will be ordering from m-s.nl, as I've had nothing but amazingly fast shipping, incredible results, and awesome prices from them. Here's what will be going in on the first go around:

    Auto Lemon Haze (fem) x2
    Auto AK47 (fem) x2
    Pineapple Kush (fem) x2

    If everything goes as planned, I'll be set up & growing in about 2-3 weeks, depending on shipping times from amazon. I know once I order the seeds they'll be here in about 8 days so no worries there lol...

    So if anyone has any advice on nutes, lighting, strain choices, or anything else, your input would be much appreciated. This is your chance to influence someone's grow before it begins, so fire away everybody!

    increase your light to a 600 watter, it will pay itself off and shouldn't set you back much more than the 150w

    cost me about $50 for my RDWC setup, used an old aquarium pump I found around the house, you can go cheapo if you want
