Greetings and +Karma to you all -

I'm new here, and as for growing I'm almost a complete noob. Well, I am really, the last weed I grew was in 1987 and things have changed a bit I'm sure. I've been studying a lot and have decided to go ahead with my first grow.

I'm planning a setup in an unused bedroom closet, which measures 5X5 although I'm only going to use a portion to grow about 4 plants at a time (in soil). The walls are white, so I don't know if I need reflective material or not?

If you see any potential problems with my idea of a setup, or have suggestions I'd very much appreciate your input!!

Here is my equipment list - some I have, some on the way, some I haven't bought yet:

G8LED 450 Watt LED Grow Light
3 Gal Smart Pots - I plan to use FFOF/Light Warrior 2:1 ratio
Seeds: Auto Candy Kush and Fruit Punch Fems (chosen for their purported high)
FoxFarm nutes - there's a retail supplier here I can get them from

I have a spare bedroom with a closet wall that adjoins the grow closet - I'm thinking of venting into the spare room through this wall via a charcoal filter/fan setup.

I'm sure I'll have tons of questions...thanks!! :Namaste:

:welcome: to :420: ScurvyKnave. I find that flat white paint is good. I think that you should be good to go. Air circulation and heat build up are a couple of things to be watchful for. Look around and have fun. I hope that your weekend is going well. :thumb:

Many thanks and greetings to you all - got my grow room 50% done, waiting on vent fan and filter. Going to do the ventilation out hole in the upper left - this will vent into a closet in an (empty) adjoining room. I'm putting a passive vent hole in the bottom where the water bottle is in my picture.
