    you don't need to give it anything but light and water. the more you do in regards to reflection the faster it will grow. tinfoil works but just painting the inside of the grow room white works better otherwise you can get mylar. I found solar shields for your car at the 99 cents store which would work if you use aluminum use the dull side. There's an infinite amount of things you can do just keep reading and experementing if you need help ask and soon you'll be giving us new ideas

    I used to work at a hardware store and I never cared what people bought. The only thing they're trained to check is that a person buying spray paint is over 18. you could be buying flood lights for anything.

    Re: cheapest way to grow indoor

    Depending on how large the plant is and how much soil you have, the frequency of watering will change. I tend to water when my soil has dried out a considerable amount. Usually when the first 2-3 inches of soil are dry. If you can get a feel for how heavy the pot is after watering and then when it is needing water that is another way to easily check without getting dirty.

    Just don't over-water and you will be fine.

    Start with cool floros, high in blue light and can almost touch the plant no harm. I use a shop light set up with 2 4' 40w cool white floros total $12 or cheaper(bulbs incl) on sale. Get some styro cups, i use 32oz that i can veg until they sex (3-4 weeks). Poke holes with a toothpick in bottom for drainage and fold 12" piece of aluminum foil in quarters to cup around bottom of cup for runoff capture. Soil can be an expense, but well worth the expense to start and grow those plants correctly. So, bite the bullet and get proper soil such as FFOF and no it won't burn the seedling. DON'T fert for at least 2+ weeks from germination. Then fert at 1/3 prescribed (mine like to start with alaska fish fert 5-1-1).

    ffof and miracle grow moisture control ...really as long as ure nutes are in check and u do an nice 30 to 50% mix down with large grain peralite there is no difference, in a smaller area if u have doe for it and want to go ahead on the ffof or what ever medium, just sayin as long as the enviroment is good they will flourish no matter what, medium is just an additive, and a moisture meter for testing the soil is awesome so u dont over water and u can figure out the perfect time to water(if they dont tell u by sayin "feed me daddy") that way u dont have any over watering issues and humidity problems due to over watering.
