Good for you man. I' not hear for attitude so like I was saying I usually go elsewhere. There are many opinions on grow styles. Just as there are many factors. Without knowing what your options are i would start with soil with a metal halide, high pressure sodium light. Lights are cheap. soil is, well, soil. A large bag of Fox Farm is $15 at the high end. You will need nutrients. The General Hydro trio is a perennial favorite, and cheap.
