    hey AFN! first time poster here and i was hoping to get some help/suggestions with my grow set up before buying the equipments. just want to make sure that i have everything i need to start my 1st grow and get my hands dirty.

    1) TENT: 24x24x55
    64" is my max head room and 55" tent is the tallest i can find with 2x2 layout so i hope this works..


    2) 4" FAN & FILTER COMBO:
    i dont really see much of a difference between the two besides the 190vs203cfm.. any inputs? are they a COMPLETE set or am i missing something else?

    - IPOWER 190cfm https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07D8TZ2KV/ref=sspa_mw_detail_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    or

    - VIVOSUN 203cfm https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06XFRNPR8/ref=sspa_mw_detail_6?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    3) AUTOCOB 3500k by @BigSm0
    ive been seeing/reading very good things about the lights and it sounds perfect for a 2x2 space!

    4)SOIL & NUTES:
    ill be taking the KISS method approach here so just the basics.

    - PRO MIX HP
    is there any difference between the
    white&orange
    https://m.lowes.com/pd/PRO-MIX-Growing-Medium-2-2-cu-ft-Peat-Moss-Moisture-Control/3745337

    and

    white&blue bag?
    https://www.greenerhydroponics.com/...MInrq236qa4QIVXSCtBh0O8gGCEAkYAyABEgKWJPD_BwE


    - GH FLORA TRIO GROW / BLOOM / MICRO
    - CAL MAG
    - PH UP/DOWN
    *TAP WATER*

    5)SEEDS: going to go for a high yielding strain for my 1st grow so i was thinking of picking up some DP AUTO ULTIMATE.

    do i have everything covered regarding the equipments? any suggestions?

    Hello dude and Welcome :welcome:....I have looked through your stuff and the tent and lights are good, I don't use Cobshop lights but their reputation on here alone is fantastic......with the medium I would go with orange, blue is for low-light, high humidity it says....eerrrr both the fan kits look ok...I would go for more fresh air in the tent so the 203 for me.......Nutes are good Flora trio....and Dutch Passion is a great choice too......good to go dude....happy growing :smiley1:

    Everything looks good to me I am pretty familiar with most of the items on your setup and nothing looks bad. I just cant speak on the medium because I have never used pro-mix, but plenty of people swear by it. I currently do not use nutes but when I did I would sometimes have issues with our tap water here (it is garbage) so I used filtered water. You can adjust for it just have to watch how your plants respond. Part of becoming a better grower is always observe. :pass:

    Set up looks good, may want to opt for 2 cobs if you plan to yield big. 1 cob is good but 60w will only take you so far.

    thank you for the input! medium came down to either FFOF or PROMIX. im looking forward to this upcoming journey.. just hoping i dont mess it up too much lol


    thanks for the input @Free Flow.

    how much of yield difference are we looking at with 2 cobs? i read 2x2 = 1 cob.. but i would be willing to take it up to 2 in the future for better yield results.
