    Hello and welcome to 420 Magazine. How many plants do you intend on growing and what strains?

    Do you have any supplies yet? Lights etc?

    unless you wanty to grow 100 plants with 6 1k lights, you will want to wall off a grow area depending on the amount you want to grow/ lighting ability.

    If it's your first grow I would go with soil. Learn the plants and then after a harvest or two try hydro. Soil is more forgiving to beginners and the mistakes they make. With hydro if your not on top of things 100% they can go bad really quickly.
    A 10W x 10L room is still huge. Remember this...any light that hits the wall or floor is wasted light. Reflection material on the walls can help but plants don't use light to underside of the leaves so reflection material on the floor would be a waste of money.

    If you get to build it out from scratch...

    Tables... Bring your work up to you!

    Another good reason to raise everything...

    Drainage... whether hydro or soil your gonna be playing with water. It would be nice to have some way to flush soil or drain and clean reservoirs, without having to move the plant, especially if you wanna grow that big... Plumb some drainage in there... and plumb a supply near by too.

    Get a reverse osmosis system.
