How to grow marijuana indoors: Getting started



The first requirement of one wanting to grow cannabis indoors is to find a spot. Meaning a spot that dosn't arouse any attention at all. Attics, basements, spare bedrooms and wardrobes are the most common unless you are on a warehouse level of growing weed.

Secondly as soon as one person knows, the whole world knows and your pretty much screwed.

Right, now that we are serious about growing lets set a set up budget, i will let you do your own research on the prices and space sizes but you will need:

For compost pot grow

1. A 400-600 watt grow lamp depending on the space size.
2. A mixture of 50% compost 50% pearlite and pots for the plants.
3. An oscillating fan.
4. A 24 hour timer with a contactor (high power switch).
5. A pH tester.
6. Nutrients for cultivation of cannabis.
7. White paint for reflective walls in the grow space.
8. Ventilation system depending on the size of your grow.
9. An air ionizer to cover the smell or a carbon filter (they stink of weed surprisingly)

For hydroponics grow

1. A 400-600 watt grow lamp depending on the space size.
2. NFT tank with pump and spreader matt.
3. Rockwool cubes
4. An oscillating fan.
5. A 24 hour timer with a contactor (high power switch).
6. A pH tester.
7. Nutrients for cultivation of cannabis.
8. White paint for reflective walls in the grow space.
9. Ventilation system depending on the size of your grow.
10. An air ionizer to cover the smell or a carbon filter (they stink of weed surprisingly)

When buying the gear, do not buy it all from one place as it may look suspicious and do not use a credit card as your personal information can lead back to your address.

Finally seeds. Unless you have been collecting them out of your dealers baggies then go ahead and invest in some nice femenized seeds i suggest Amsterdammarijuanaseeds as they are the leaders in the marijuana seed game, ship internationally and give you free seeds!
It's a tricky business if you have collected seeds as you will have to separate the males from the females as early as possible which is a pain because the males could ruin your whole grow which i will delve into later.

Once you have the seeds it's time to germinate them. Try not to touch them with bare hands as this may taint them. To germinate the seeds all you need to do is place them in a damp tissue or some cotton wool and leave them in a dark warm place (near a radiator) for a couple of days until they are sprouting, now it's time to plant your weed seeds.
