Hello im Ayzo.

Firstly i would like to take this chance to say thank you to everyone here at 420magazine. Without your journals I probably wouldnt have been confident enough to start growing my own meds.

I have been dreaming about growing my crop for a while now, like I said I didnt know much about growing (STILL DONT) but i have decided to give it a go since there is such a great community here at 420mag.
I havent got any seeds yet as i am still setting up my indoor cabinet and that is why i have started this journal so i can ask for help.
Here are stats


What strain is it?
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? Northen lights is one of my first choices but please feel free to give me orther choices.and why they would suit.me as I have never grown before.

Is it in Veg or Flower stage? Germinating
Indoor
space size: 45x45x60cm bought a small bedside drawer set from a charity shop ripped out the drawers and attached a door on some henges. (will post pics)
Coco + perlite
3 x 3 galon pots
Size of light? Im thinking 2x35w equal 151w 2285lumin 2700k each cfl 3x15w equal 75w 970lumin
Is it aircooled? 4" fan. need a recommendation for an extractor with filter for odour.:peace:
Temp of Room/cab? Dont know yet.
I will try to post as many pictures as possible also considering installing a cam inside cabinet.

Things im missing off my checklist : 4" FAN, SEEDS, EXTRACTOR FAN, COCO A+B NUTES.
Things I need to do in the grow room: make vent holes(top and bottom on opposite sides) fit a hanger or some sort to have better flexebility with lights.

Question, it might be a dumb one but I wont know if I dint ask, can I use ------------ or mist hydro systeme with canna coco +perlite.
Next question is; if I start with rockwool and then plant the cube in a 2lt pot with coco, can I keep them in a 2lt till harvest, and other way round, one I potted in a 2lt can I repot it into say a 4lt pot?

Thanks for taking the time and reading.
Holla Soon.
Peeeaaacee!:thanks:

Got my coco coir proffessional 50L and 10L perlite. would post pictures but i got up late and have work. took some pictures with basil plant inside to roughly see how much space it takes up.. i gotta say im happy with the way its going so far.

I got advice from a friend and he said i dont need perlite unless i was using big pots

As promised here are some pictures with my box in action, I put my basil herb plan in there for about 6 hours just to see how hot it gets how close I can keep the light to the plant, basicly just to get a feel of how im goin to go ahead and start once I get some seeds.
How it looks like from outside with lights on.

Basil plant about 30cm tall from bottom of the pot

Usb pc fans arrived, very happy with the product I still havent fitted it yet. The little ladies are looking good at 3 days under constant light, although I thought id let them be in the dark for 3 hours. I only used nutes what I could get from my local store and its 4-4-4 with seaweed extract. I will take pics now and will post them in a bit after I have a smoke.
Thanks for stoppin by. :Namaste:
