x2:nicethread:start a cover garden other wise miss nosy neighbor will wonder what you are doing with dirt bags the ones you carry in to the house not your puke wearing drunk buddies falling off the porch at 3 am loudly.... put out some visible flower pots[veggies/pansysetc] do not show anyone your grow
gotta say i agree with phatblunt this will be my first grow and after 2 months of back and forth what i will do i found that the most cost effective with a closet grow would be a dwc(deep water culture) with air stones )setup very cheap and very easy to build not consuing at all look at the results. hydro nutes and pretty cheap if research is done. on discount hydropontics they have a switch 400w hps and refelctor included at $159 and if upgrade was desired the new model by next gen is only 210 with everything timmers are cheap depending on where you live sometimes second hand stores will have cheap things that are ok to buy there like air pump also a petstore very cheap, anyways i think the dwc setup will be very cheap and easy for you to do and comprehend just remember keep a close eye on your babies take care of her and she will do the same.look at journals..
read up and see what you like and meets your likings
and go from there... theres some great growers on these forums!
