There's a lot of useful info about growing in coco at Coco for Cannabis. He's all-in on using timers, automatic irrigation, and drain-to-waste with lots of runoff 100% of the time. It works really well, but it can be a bit tricky to get dialed in, and dealing with runoff can be a pain (especially if you care about disposing of it in an environmentally responsible way). I'd take his "you need to always water to 20% runoff" advice with a grain of salt; just try to water often enough that salts don't build up too much, and maybe err on the side of feeding with lower EC. Last grow I used automatic irrigation, but aimed for just barely having any runoff, and then hand-watered extra to get runoff once a week, when I felt like dealing with it. Definitely note his advice about
preparing and re-using coco, though. One of the best parts about coco is that you should be able to reuse it for a while.

There are other approaches, such as hempy buckets or bottom-feeding that may be simpler, particularly if you're doing a really small personal grow like I am. There's also an approach that combines them, with zero runoff. I haven't tried that one yet, but plant to try my next full size (not 1L SOG) run that way.

For nutrients, I don't know if it's available where you are, but I've been using Dyna-Gro: Foliage-Pro in veg, Bloom in flower. The only other thing I'd add is Pro-Tekt, a silica supplement that also works well as a pH Up. They're pretty inexpensive, simple to use, buffer pH nicely, great all-in-one option. People have also recommended MaxiBloom and Mega-Crop as other simple all-in-one fertilizers (both powdered). I can't personally speak to those, but worth looking into.

I use this EC/ppm meter and these pH test drops. I haven't tried using a pH meter, because the periodic calibration sounds like more trouble than it's worth. The EC meter and the test drops have worked fine for me, and in coco you'll probably only need to check pH of nutrient mixes, then compare EC going in (feed) and coming out (runoff). For that, the drops and that EC meter work great. (That EC meter probably isn't anything special, most cheap ones are probably fine.)

People will probably also recommend Grow Weed Easy, but some of their info about coco (particularly watering recommendations) is pretty dodgy. If you haven't done a full grow before, they have helpful info about harvesting and curing, though.

Strain recommendations will depend on a ton on personal taste, but I particularly like Mephisto's Fugue State. :) Good luck!

If you're open to alibaba, you can get much more for your money by buying a quantum board there. Should be able to get 200w+ of QB from alibaba... look around here because they're posted all over. They keep changing so I don't bookmark them but they are cheaper than HLG and the same technology.


OR you could easily grab two 65w QBs off Amazon for $200 and have 130w QB lighting in there which is a bit less than most people recommend, but so would two viparspectras be.


2x4 should be 400 TRUE WATTS (not advertised numbers) of blurple, or 200-240w of QB by most people's calculations.


Those two viparspectras are likely not even close to 400w of true blurple lighting. They may say "600w" or "1000w" each but that's a lie. Read further down on the item description and it will tell you the true draw, which is likely closer to 100w each than anything else. So your two viparspectras would probably be like HALF the lighting you need, while your two QBs would be more than that, and way better lighting overall with better penetration for faster growth.


My little 65w QB beats the brakes off a 135w blurple I used to use for reference.


u/beefiftyone · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Thanks for the insightful replies everyone! I've been looking at some of those COB lights also on amazon (one in particular - )

It seems the little boost of extra wattage from this Roleadro would make it better than the mars 300w to ensure adequate coverage for just 1 auto at any given time I hope?

Thanks again for the replies everyone!

u/comelon94 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Thanks! Im going to get some today.
The light im using is a Marshydro 600W LED (275W true output). I got it for $140 from the Marshydro store on ebay!

I really like the light because I feel it has good penetration, it does not produce a lot of heat, and it is easy of my electric bill haha. I have not experienced a single problem with it!

u/tarponator · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

I have that $10 phone clip on microscope that you see a lot of on amazon. It actually works well. Shows amber. have a nice phone screen is so much better than a loupe - just need to steady your hand. its not really a digital microscope. Its just a 60x lens that you put in front of your phone cam lens and you use your phone to zoom in. it gives me the best view of trichomes out of all the devices I have, including an old lab grade ziess microscope. and the LED light does not mask out amber.

This is the one that causes me issues. going to send it back. And it has built in zoom and is a true digital scope.

u/Stillwindows95 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Yeah I just said to another guy about how I’ve been meticulously checking each product I’ve chosen and they all seem to cover the nutrients that base nutes use, except instead of adding some A nute and then some B nute (I found A LOT of a/b ones) I’ll be adding a few extra things per gallon, but I’m convinced now that I do need base nutes too. So I’ve found either advanced nutrients ph perfect sensi A/B or this

I’ve been hearing good things about biobizz I’m even going to use their soil next time instead of canna (too much wood chip in canna soil

u/donks_ · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

Thanks, this is my first ever grow, I love gardening and didn't want to spend a massive amount of money for my first attempt (all the gear, no idea type of thing).

I spent about 2 month researching strains for cooler environments, and these seeds seemed to be just what I was looking for (though we have had amazing weather this year so far so I could have probably got away with something that likes warmer environments).

at the moment they are 9 weeks from seed and have been in big pots since week 2 I think the pots are fairly big I would guess minimum 7 gallon possibly bigger. They were lST'ed from week 3 and have been fed using a biobizz trail pack

Soil is canna professional

So including seeds my total cost has been about £45

Medium: Hydroton

Lights: Roleadro LED Grow Light, Galaxyhydro Series 1000W Indoor Plant Grow Lights Full Spectrum with UV&IR for Veg and Flower-1000w

Environment Details: Homemade grow box (height- 6 feet, width- 2 feet, depth- 18 inches). This was built specifically for an available space in my condo.

Strain: Blue Dream Auto

Age: 4 weeks from transplanting into dwc

Pot size: 5 gallon Lowe's dwc- Papi Chulo Edition

Nutrient line and schedule: Maxibloom, Lucas method. 3 gallons of water with 3 tsp of nutrients

Watering Volume: Once it drops below the spot I marked off on the bucket ::shrug::

First things first, this is my first time ever trying to grow anything, other than children and our recipe collection. I'm looking at this as a new hobby and looking for some guidance. I'm pretty sure based on the pics alone, I'm going to be flamed. Since I do not know what I'm doing, I called myself trying to LST it and broke 2 branches, but I think I have the concept

I know there's some sort of deficiency based on the leaves, however, me being a first time grower, I'm proud of all the other fresh green. My PH has been going up within the last 2 weeks and I have to keep adding oh down. The good thing is the ppm changes based on the plant absorbing the nutrients.

u/KnockturnalEmissons · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

ph testing fluid to calibrate ur ph meter, ph meter storage solution, ph up & ph down,(i suggest this kit cause it has both and ph test drops, good to have a low tech 2nd option JIC). A TDS ppm meter would be nice too. Dont forget a notebook to keep track of everything, I regret not recording a lot of stuff, or set up something in google docs on ur fone and take lots of pics. Most importantly, love.

u/876watts · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

It's pretty awesome. I was on the fence until I actually tried it out. So much easier than a jewelers loupe.

plugable microscope

u/DOROTHYADAMS · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

I have read that full spectrum wastes energy bc the plants can only utilize certain spectrums. Is that true? Here is another I was looking at that uses the more red spectrum. Is this one any good?

u/St0f89 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

What heat output??? they run very, very cool. When I went from HPS to led, I went from active cooling to passive cooling. Seriously, they're the best.

4x4 will be a little more pricey, but not by much.

Something like this, or use 2 units and spread them out (that's what I'd do)

u/Henry_Haberdasher · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Ok, if you want LED and wallet is no problem check out these. I've not used them myself (obviously) but i've seen grow diaries of them and they are amazing.

If you want more bottom end of the scale then you want something like this. This will grow you one, maybe 2 plants very nicely.

u/ufgrow · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

From Amazon:

This picture was taken with the 30x magnification lens on the loupe with a Pixel 3. More importantly, my OtterBox Commuter case was still on, which provides a small gap between the lens and the loupe, which takes clearer pictures.

So Pixel 3 in the case, and the lens held directly to the case, if that makes sense. Hope this helps!

u/editfate · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

I like Silica Blast on Amazon. I've used it for multiple grows now and it's only helped. Makes the leaves stand up really straight I find which is always good when you're trying to maximize how much light gets to all the leaves.

u/RaphiB · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Thanks for the info, I'm not sure on the version,
whatever that one is?

I thought aiming for around 50 watts per sq ft was best to aim for. Have you any idea how much difference there could be to the plants in the two different spaces (~71W per sq ft in the 2x2 to ~31W in the 3x3)?

u/Majestic_unicorn31 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Performs great I couldn't be happier with it. They'd been running pretty much constantly for 4 months and not any problems. VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series 600W LED
I'm planning on getting another one or there 1200w model eventually.

u/XdefeatsY · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Thanks! I am using 2 different LED lights in my tent (Apollo 4'x4'). I started out with just this light for the first 3 weeks because I was short on cash and thought I'd try my luck at skimping on coverage with a cheap, Chinese light from Amazon. By week 3 or so, I had serious doubt about its ability to cover 4'x4' in flower. I bought this light to run in addition.

u/Enviros007 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

The viparspectra's have a pretty good name as an alternative, for 600 you could get this or this
More bang for your dollar. You could definately do 4 plants with either of those I suspect. Others may chime in with suggestions as well if you're not in a hurry.

Carson MicroBrite Plus 60x-120x LED Lighted Pocket Microscope

Check this cheap and works super well usually snip a little sugar leaf

u/DonFazool · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

I went with one of these :

Thanks for the tips. I think this will be much easier for me

u/OutOfTheLoop0990 · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

I have that one and the roldero cob also. I would spend the extra bit and go for that. It wasn't much more but way better. The plant under the led stretched to the cob

u/ValorousVagabond · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

He's referring to something like this.

Pay attention to the amount of power it draws from the wall, not the "600w" figure they posted which is going to be quite wrong. I did the math on the ones available on Amazon, and the Viparspectras seem to give you the best W/$ ratio.

u/cockonmydick · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Do you suggest a DWC system that I can buy? I noticed the picture you linked and I was looking at this but I'm a little concerned about the (very) few complaints on the air pump and stone.
I just want to grow 2 plants so all of the multiple plant setups aren't for me, but two of these would be great. With that being said, I plan to buy the MarsHydro 300w since it's all anyone ever talks about, but is one enough? Should I get one for each? I plan on growing these in my unused second bathroom, right in the shower. No tent and wide open (though I may switch to a 3x3 tent eventually). Since most posts I've been reading seem to all be in tents I'm not sure how growing them in a more open space might affect the lighting set up.
Can't wait to get started, just waiting on Mephisto to get back to me!

u/TeethAreOutsideBones · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

This would put you a little over budget but may be your best bet. Canadian Amazon has a horrible selection.

Roleadro LED Grow Light, Galaxyhydro Series 300W Indoor Plant Grow Lights Full Spectrum with UV&IR for Veg and Flower

So far it’s been working pretty good so far w my white widow autoflower. Recently battled gnats and over fertilized so they’ve got a little Nitrogen stress at the moment.. but the lights seem to work fine

u/G3nerous · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

I’m doing soil, was planning on 8 plants (I’m allowed 12), possibly 10. I know a heater/humidifier will be in the room-doesn’t need to be in the tent. Would the lights I have be good for 8 plants?

Would 2 of these fill the tent if with the lights I have if I wanted to do 10?

Idt you’re being a dick I appreciate the response

u/PM_ME_UR_SKETCH · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

-put links in the body of your post not title.

-You were also the guy who was asking about the miricle grow thingy right?


Why dont you want to build a system? It takes about 30 minutes and a trip to home depot.


If you really don't want to do that get something like this:

u/MonsterShitStorm · 3 pointsr/Autoflowers

Do yourself a favor and return that and get 2 of these Horticulture Lighting Group HLG 100 V2 3000K Quantum Boards.

u/Pork_Taco · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

Gonna keep it and supplement with 2 of these as well HLG 65 V2 4000K Horticulture Lighting Group Quantum Board LED Grow Light Veg & Bloom 4000K | Version 2 High-Efficiency Upgraded LM301B LED's

u/HighLightCloset · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

You can get the full set on amazon for 39.99 plus shipping (not a prime item). But the pump it comes with is underpowered so plan on upgrading that.


u/deangegrowvickers · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

In that size of a tent I would 100% just do one at a time and focus on getting as much as you can from it. I've gotten 200g+ from my mephistos. I would get this light

u/spamzzz · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

I just bought this one today that a fellow redditor from this sub recommended me

u/connordddm · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Phlizon 600W LED Plant Grow Light,with Thermometer Humidity Monitor,with Adjustable Rope,Full Spectrum Double Switch Plant Light for Indoor Plants Veg and Flower- 600W(10W LEDs 60Pcs)

u/ProfessorPihkal · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

These pull around 200w from the wall and are probably what I'll be upgrading to in the near future.

VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series 300W LED Grow Light Full Spectrum for Indoor Plants Veg and Flower

u/Nikusha123 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Will this VIPARSPECTRA light + my current LED be enough for 4-5 plants?

u/t1me4change · 2 pointsr/Autoflowers

This light would be much better:

Horticulture Lighting Group HLG 100 V2 3000K Quantum Board LED Grow Light Veg & Bloom | Version 2 High-Efficiency Upgraded LM301B LED's

If you can possibly grow inside instead of the garage, I would. High humidity is bad once you're fully into flowering and can cause mold.

u/MellyTheSmelly · 0 pointsr/Autoflowers

The red spectrum LEDs can do a lot of damage to seedlings and young plants in veg if they are too close, I found that out the hard way and now have an LED that allows blue, red or blue and red together for flowering mode. The young plants seemed healthier and seemed to grow much better in both height and density with the blue at 24".

u/19cent · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

This one? My ambient temp is going to be in the low 60s-40s and maybe lower so the light choice shouldn't matter up to a point, I just want to minimize heat just as a preventative measure since my tent is in a smallish closet and I'm only gonna run one plant at a time. I already have a free bulb so I was gonna buy two more but the final price equals the price of the board. However, I will humor you. Given the lack of reviews, can you justify your claim ?

u/Mrblooms2019 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers and the other light I got with the kit says it’s 600w but not sure of actual power it pulls from the wall. My dimensions are in meters sorry.

u/Pureness304 · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

There are plenty of options on amazon. Lots of small LED set ups. The cheap Chinese lights really aren’t too bad either. A 300W will definitely do the job of you have room. Biggest concern with keeping things stealthy is the smell. You’ll need a carbon filter. During flowering things start to really reek!

This is the light I use currently.

VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series...

It works well. Definitely not the best on the market but it does the job!

u/TheNomadicHermit · 3 pointsr/Autoflowers

Spend $13 to get some proper magnification. Without a clear image of the trichomes, all the bud shots in the world are worthless for predicting harvest window.
