    Dude you are in LA hydro stores are all over. If you don't want to drive then buy from a store in LA and UPS ground is still next day shipping.

    Better grow hydro just opened a new store in LA. I think the URL is BGHYDRO.com

    Cheep is dirt growing, to grow hydro you need to monitor & control Ph. Have proper nutrients and maintain temperature control. Even with a cheep hydro setup like a DWC bucket. That is about as cheep as it gets to start hydro. But you must have a good way to monitor the Ph and measure the mixture PPM so you know what you feed them at the proper time in the plants life cycle. Mistakes are quick to kill plants if you don't monitor the plants closly.

    You can build a 4 site DWC (deep water culture) hydroponic setup for about $75 very easily. There are many plans for this, but a quick list is

    20 gallon rubbermaid tub (dark so there is no light entering)
    4 output airpump (or 1 dual output and 1 single output)
    4-5 airstones
    4 6" netpots with around 4 litres of hydroton (clay balls)
    General Hydroponics Flora Nova Grow and Bloom (1 part systems, good results, very simple) nutrients

    And wahla. With a 400 watt light, you can produce 4 ounces in less then 3 months (including curing) if you start from clone. Ive been using this system and I flowered when the plants were about 2 weeks old (10" tall?). They are now 3.5 feet tall and still growing. You can also make the 20 gallon tub a 2 plant site instead of 4, which I prefer. A pH pen ($100) and a TDS/EC pen ($80) is a great upgrade, because it enables you to fully take advantage of the hydroponic situation, getting the exact PPM and pH you need for plants to flourish.
