OK - heading to Dad's soon to start this ball rolling. We're not going to deviate from previous grow equipment, but let me list what is going to be used. (Manufacturer/model name given where possible).
Seeds: Female Seeds Chem OG (OG Kush x Chemdawg)
Tent: 48" wide x 24" deep x 60" high. GYO series.
Light: Mars 300 led
Light: Vivosun 300 led
Air pump: Hydrofarm AAPA15L 6-Watt 15-LPM Active Aqua Air Pump with 4 Outlets. Dual 4" airstone per rez.
Nutrients: Advanced Nutrients pH Perfect Nutrients, Fertilizer. Bloom, Micro and Grow 1-Liter.
Grow medium: Hydroton
Starter medium: Peat pellets
Net pot: 4"
Reservoir: Rubbermaid 11 litre
Carbon filter: 4"
Exhaust fan: 135 cfm
Each plant will have it's own 300w led - due to restricted space we're running these 2 at a time. 2 x 300w in a 8 sq ft area (actual about 270w). I'm curious to see if 1 outperforms the other in a side by side, but that's not the focus.
Also, we're running this as a 12/12 from seed - here's my mini rationale for this. Allows for least expensive electric rates 7 days a week. 7pm to 7am. Fixed amount, easy to calculate. 18/6 or 20/4 requires paying multiple prices for electricity, sometimes the peak rate is nearly double. No matter when I start an 18/6 or 20/4 schedule, I run into variable costs (always higher). Even if my grow time is same length as regular photoperiod, my costs are lower. I'm thinking that the yield per sq ft / electricity cost is gonna be pretty decent. We'll see.
