Leoni,

You can get all the info you need on the net, spend some time and study some helpful site such as this Sensi site also another site that I recommend is www.quicktrading.com it is from the grow expert Ed Rosenthal. Check it out.

After gather up all the basic info such as grwon in Hydro or soil, seeds, light ,water, nutrient,life cycle , sexing , harvest  etc.. then you will need to get the basics.

Find a source for some seeds, get a good light.

good luck!

Yes you need to make your own findings and mistakes...

Some will tell you things can only be done a certain way but if you `feel your way` as you grow then you can develop your own technique to suit your own time constraints, etc.

Blue spec is for veg, red spec for flowering. If you're only buying one, go for the red spec as indoor cannabis spends more time in flower than veg.
 
Running the two at the same time will give the plants the perfect light spectrum at all times and you should end up with twice as much bud because you're using twice as much light.
 
However, if you have the choice, buy a 250w HPS light instead of a CFL. HPS is much more efficient for growing plants and you will end up with more smoke on harvest day.

hello everybody!

i decided to start growing my own as i'm fed up with the unreliable sources :)

so. after i spent some time researching the subject on google i found the homebox which seems to be ideal for a beginner like me.
after examining the types of the homebox, i decided to get this kit: http://www.head-nature.com/04165-400W
for the seeds, i'm planning to get feminized super skunk.
what i really don't have any clue about is:
-how many plants could fit in that homebox? (just for the record, my guess is 5 :))
-what type of soil should i use?
-what fertilizers and nutrients should i get, and how much?

and of course i would be grateful for any advices or links to good faqs, as i'm really a beginner, the only plants i have right now are cactuses :)

regards and thanks,

undertow

1. You could grow one big plant or up to nine small ones (3x3) in that homebox.
 
2. You should use good quality potting soil. Add 20% perlite or vermiculite to improve drainage.
 
3. You can buy nutrients designed for the growth and flowering stages of cannabis. If you can't get these, use food designed for tomatoes.

thanks for the quick answer mick.

1. i guess i will go for more small ones, that should give more yield.

2. so any good qual soil works? does the pH matter? i had a quick glance on one the bigger gardening shops' webpage in our country, they have soils with pH 6.5-7, 6-7, 5-6, ph neutral...
as i understand skunk does not like acidic soil so i guess it should be either the 6-7 or the 6.5-7 one?

3. could we go in more details about this? :)
for example. does this: http://www.head-nature.com/04086?id=8PD5rP8D&mv_pc=285
contain what i need or that's not enough?
what about this: http://www.head-nature.com/04662?id=8PD5rP8D&mv_pc=293
or this: http://www.head-nature.com/04658?id=8PD5rP8D&mv_pc=321
?

i don't want to buy things i won't need but i also don't want to end up missing something important.

cheers,
undertow
