Why Do I Need to Start Growing?
issuing time ：2019-09-26
Here at virexchina.com, we know that the most difficult part of getting into growing is just knowing where to start. To help new growers, we have compiled a complete list of things you will need to consider purchasing before you begin:
1. Grow Area
One of the few things we can't offer you is a safe, secure space to grow. Before you do anything, make sure the space you want to turn into your grow room is clean, has windows for venting and is temperature controlled.
2. Grow Tent
Grow tents are a necessary tool, but they have premade exhaust vents, wall to wall reflective mylar, and a grow light hanging bars that save you from having to drill holes into the ceiling. You just need a space in your house and you can be growing in no time.
3. Grow Light
Plants need plenty of light, such as double ended grow light, 315W CMH grow light.
Double ended HPS/ MH grow light try to replicate the energy created by the sun in a much truer way, and therefore offer plants a more natural, full-spectrum simulated sunlight, whereas LED lights try to digitally deliver parts of that light spectrum.
4. Air Flow
It's very important to have an idea where you will exhaust your heat and stale air out, and how you plan to pump fresh air in. This steady flow of air will strengthen your plant's branches, enhance growth, and assist with temperature and humidity control. A good air exchange system will include vents at the bottom to bring in fresh air, two oscillating fans pointed at the bottom of your grow room, a carbon filter, and inline ducting fan, a fan speed controller, and ducting to vent the stale air to the outside of your grow room. Please ensure that you are not pumping stale air into the same space that you are venting fresh air from.
5. Grow Syste
Choosing whether to grow in soil, or in a hydroponic system using clay pebbles, coco, or another grow medium is a tought choice for new growers.

6. Harvest Tools
Once your plants mature, you still have a few steps to go. In addition to regular prunning, you will also need to cut, dry and trim buds. Drying racks are a good solution to help air dry your bud. Trimming can be done by hand, but you can also invest in a hand-crank leaf trimmer to help remove unwanted leaves and stems from your buds.
