How to Start Growing

Safety concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic and a wave of new legalization have many people interested in growing their own cannabis from the comfort and security of their homes. There are very few activities quite like cultivating cannabis indoors, which can make the process look daunting to the beginner grower. But never fear, PotGuide is here. 

The majority of the items needed for your cannabis grow can be purchased at any local gardening center (and many places even have a local hydroponics shop).  So let’s discuss your options, and what equipment you can expect to use.Ad

Selecting Your Grow Space

Consider first how many plants you want to grow, and how big you’d like them to be. Account for the lights above, containers below, air circulation systems (either fans or more advanced setups), and space for you to move around all these things in your measurements. Try to avoid carpet or other areas difficult to sanitize.A homemade grow roomFinding an adequate grow space is the first step to begin growing. photo credit

You’ll also want complete control of the lighting, so blackout any windows. Even leaks through cracked doors, seams, or shutters can disrupt your plant’s development. Airflow is another critical factor. Ideally, you’ll want a space where you can install exhaust fans, but at the very least you will need to be able to circulate the air in the grow space.

    Here are some tips from me. Marijuana don’t like wet feet, Don’t over water them. Water them less and more often instead of a lot to flood them and not let them get light in buckets. Make sure you have holes in the bottom of the container for drainage. Too much nitrogen will attract aphids, and budworms are the only nemisis that require chemistry or a financial outlay. Good luck!

    My gf used to grow outdoors, but we now live in the big city and want to setup an indoor grow in the garage. The main thing I am worried about is temperature control… It’s pretty hot right now in California.
