Step 1. Find a suitable setup space (spare room, garage, etc)

You should never use unfiltered rain water - you never know what you're feeding plants. The best water you can use is pure, filtered water. Read more on the importance of water here. Will Noise Be An Issue? Lights, pumps and your fan can make some noise. Bear this in mind with your setup. What’s The Flooring Like? Don't grow straight onto carpeted floors.
