First, like WH said, you really do need to do some reading to familiarize yourself with what it takes to set up a grow space. You will also need to do a whole bunch of reading about how to raise and care for the plant. It is not like growing tomatoes. Plants take about 4 months and there is a heck of a learning curve. There will be a lot of decisions for you to make.

I would check Amazon. You can get a good 600W system for under $200 with an air coolable hood....however that is most likely not going to grow 5-8 plants. And there is a lot to buy in addition to the light--you need to set up a space, get fans, a filter, medium, pots, nutrients, and good genetics. So, maybe you should tell us what your budget is for this hobby and we can advise you to what is best within your budget. Just to give you an idea though, setting up a space for 5-8 plants is probably going to run at least $500-600 and maybe more.

Im talking from firsthand experience here.....I would wait until you have the $$ to do it right. Otherwise you will end up spending 3x the $ to fix what you do have the $ for.

I am currently going through this myself and I WISH I waited.

But yes, everyone is right.....reading is free.....do tons of it.
