I didn't go huge for my first grow. Heres what I have:
140$ - a brand new 400w HPS/Ballast/Reflective Hood set
10$ - soil (used cheap soil, next time I'll get a better medium)
0$ - some room fans I had laying around,
20$ - electrical (power surger,digita lightl timer,thermometer,water gage,etc)

Thats only $170 and although only 1 plant made it (other was a male) i've got a decent little plant going with this minimal setup

if a buddy was starting a grow i'd tell them to go digital ballast either/or halioe and hi press sodium fan cooled hood ventilation and soil first time through
then after a grow or two switch to hydro or aeroponics....

well they're going to be using the halide or hps fan cooled hood ventilation and all that even in hydro or aeroponics :eek:


but yeah, it's generally a good idea to go soil, then hydro.
