What do I ACTUALLY need?

Just joined to the forum, its my first post.

I'm messed up in the head in some way that I have zero tolerance for things I don't need. Its not about money, Its not about space, I just don't like having more than enough things.

So I want to know what equipment and items do I "actually" need to grow picture perfect healthy plants in small scale indoor cabinet grow. Never tried coco, and I want to give it a shot.

Whats the essentials?

K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) ) And this acronyms been a working philosophy for many people years untold. I have no patience for excess myself and I practice moderation within all.

So with that said I would highly recommend that you invest in led lighting, or just good old florescent lights. Heats going to be a factor, and the more heat, the more complicated it can become. Regardless of the lighting, your gonna need ventilation and a plan that works with the ambient temperature fluctuations you're going to most likely experience. And once lighting and ventilation are set aside, your gonna need to invest in meters, one for Ph and the other for tds or e.c. and the rest will be determined by how simple you want it. Your gonna find a world of products curtailed around the coco-ponics and it is a diverse world when it comes to the many products on the market. But I and many others utilizing the K.I.S.S. method often only use the minimum by following the Lucas formula. You can find plenty of information here and elsewhere online about growing in coco.

Well, I hope I summed it up for you and that this helps. I don't do the cannabis forums thing to much anymore, but I like to drop by now and then to help others out when I can.. Best of growing to you...

Define your budget.


Assuming you have a cabinet, lights, and correct airflow management, timer for lights, exhaust fan, air scrubber.

Aquire medium, nutes and containers to measure/mix the nutes,
and to prep your medium.

Pots to hold the media, drainage set up.

An EC meter.

pH meter/strips.

Pest control mangement.

Jars to cure your product, and hygrometers to
monitor the cure.

That's it in a nutshell.

The absolute minimalist set of tools is a container full of dirt, a sunny window, and water.

If you want to grow it in a closet then you need to add a light and exhaust fan to the list.

If you want to try soilless/hydroponic growing techniques like coco that's when you need to buy ec and ph measuring tools, calibration solutions for those meters, special fertilizers and ph adjusting products.

You can grow great weed with just dirt and water though. The quality you get in organic soil is typically higher than hydroponics. I'm sure you can find tons of soil recipes on here.

Have fun

do you have experience growing in other mediums? Or is this your first ever grow?

Lucas formula for sure.
Coco yields great but a good bagged soil needs nothing for the first 3-4 weeks. then I have used Dry maxi bloom, Ph down, Cal/Mag all from General Hydroponics and RO water,

Required? Seed. Light. Water. Nutrients. Medium. Airflow. The devil is in the details though. Soil combines nutrients + medium. Hydro means you must supply all the nutrients. I'd also throw on a PH meter, they are too handy not to have.
