1) Co2 tank. 3 kg ones is enough for you. Can last months to a year.
2) Electric Solenoid.
3) Timer to start/stop your item 2)
4) bubble counter..to regulate the co2 input.
5) tubings.
6) Co2 ceramic diffuser. To be placed inside the tank to diffuse the co2 into many tiny bubbles.

and wala....you are ready to start pumping.
Get from NA...good value for money.

yeap like what the_r0ck said, read up and you will understand. im also new to planted but just keep reading. basically solenoid is a device to allow and control the amount of co2 into your tank, come in electric and manual. i got my whole set with electric solenoid from c328 at 200+.
