Hey DGC, I started a budget grow in my closet about a month ago. I bought a Dakason 1500 “150w” (it only pulls about 128 watts from the wall at 100%) off of Amazon for $60. I’m growing in a mix of coco that I found at Walmart of all places ($6/8qt.) perlite also from Walmart ($7/8qt.) mushroom compost I found at Lowes ($4/40lb) and worm castings (also from Walmart $9/8qt). I mixed the coco, perlite and compost at 30/30/30 and one cup of castings. From there I added some RECHARGE and Grow Dots. My seed was of unknown origin that had been sitting in my rolling box for anywhere from 5-10 years. I could not be more happy with the results. I flipped to flower pretty quickly do to space constraints but the photos show the start of week 2 of flower.
