Hello OG. So I have been asked many times about grow kits and cheaper lights. It bothers me that I can only guess about them or go off what others say so I decided to prove one way or another if they will do the job. I have gotten a Mars Hydro TS1000 complete grow kit. This comes with a 2x2 tent so I am going to set it up, drop 2 auto’s in there and we shall see what we got. All I want to prove is if these complete kits are good enough to get someone new started. In this case it is Mars as it was readily available but there are many others to choose from. Well here we go. I started this on another site but thought I would share it and update here as well. It would be nice to show that you don’t have to break the bank to do a small grow.
This is like Christmas morning unwrapping your present that you really wanted.

Hey brother, good to see you. Thanks.
Hey all, so the tent is up, the equipment is set and the seeds are soaking. We got a Cheese and a Wedding Cheesecake going in, both Autos.
Well not much to report as of yet but sure, baby pics for you. The poor slow Cheese plant seems to have lost one of it’s Cotyledons. I figured this would happen as it was stuck in the seed membrane and one of the Cotyledons ended up all deformed. Both plans have roots hitting bottom so I am expecting some growth to start happening soon.
Still rooting up. So the first thing missing from this kit is a fan. It has an extraction fan but no clip fan. Added a fan to get some more air flowing on the babies. Also going to pull out the humidifier to lower the RH. The kit is pretty complete but these two pieces of equipment will have to be added. This would be day 7 since first serrated leaves came out on the faster one. The runt is still the runt. Roots are looking fuller now so expect a growth spurt to start soon.
Well folks 2 weeks since we broke ground and the little ladies seem to be hungry. Not surprising as they are in coco. Not much growth but they rooted up fine. Will be mixing some nutes to add tonight and am expecting some growth to start right quick.
Didn’t even know this was a thing. Congratulations Doug! You are more than deserving of the title.
Thanks very much, I didn’t know either. It’s pretty cool and was a great surprise to wake up to.
