The next big decision you need to make is whether you will grow in soil or soil-less.
Each section will have general information and end with a recommendation box, where I recommend specific products, in case you are not sure which ones are any good.

If you’re planning on using a grow tent, there’s no need to worry as they’re fully sealed so that no light can get in. If you’re growing in a wardrobe or in a room, you will need to cover every inch of the walls in reflective sheeting for grow rooms, making sure that absolutely no light can get in.

1.2×1.2×2 = 2.88 x 60 = 172.8m 3 . This is the strength that your extraction fan will have to reach to be as effective as possible.
