They don't call the stuff weed for nothing, it requires no great horticultural skills or equipment investment to grow. I've heard of college kids growing out a few Mexican seeds under a few CFLs and getting servicble product..

the stuff grows from the equator to the artic circle so the notion that it has to have 24 hours of light or a specific kind of light, or a specific temperature is pure crap..

If you are trying some kind marketable, high end dispensary grade ultra potent strain, then yah. Some folks are fine making a drinkable ale without thinking they are going to put the,local craft brewery out of business.

Tellingthem: Ambivalence: God damn that sounds complicated. $1000 in equipment and special feeding schedules.  And CO2? What the fark man?

You can do almost as good with a closet, a couple of buckets, and a few lights. It's actually quite easy unless you demand nothing but the best two-toke-smoke. Even growing from seed isn't that difficult. But now there is an entire industry built around growing weed so of course they are going to want you to buy their products. It's just another business.


No, you can't.  Those lights are going to make that closet too hot for the plants and the lights have to be on almost 24 hours a day at first (24 the first week, 23 the next, 22 the following) until you are down to about 14 hours of light a day at which time vegetative growing ends and blooming begins.  The CO2 helps enormously during the budding.  Also, just one male plant (and they are very easy to spot) will seed the whole group and lessen their potency.
Take it from me--you need cooling, some kind of odor removal as growing weed has a distinctive smell and good fertilizer.  A lot of work.

Girion47: You realize anyone can read this website right? And we do have active law enforcement as members.


You realize many of us live in states where it's legal to grow right?

fusillade762: findthefish: A friend with weed is a friend indeed.

/damn it would be good to get on the ground floor of a legal grow operation

The problem now is that budding (pardon the pun) entrepreneurs can't get a loan to start a business growing because no bank is going to lend money to someone for an operation the Feds deem illegal.


Banks aren't loaning money to anyone. To get in on the ground floor of a legal grow operation just start small and build your business over time like everyone else.

Growing pot is a lot like brewing whole grain beer. Lots of people try it but get tired of the boring difficult parts and are then happy to go back to buying it from someone else. If you have never gardened or farmed it may not be for you. If you really want to be a successful pot grower then start by planting a vegetable garden. It's a lot cheaper and less stressful to make dumb mistakes on zucchini and tomatoes.

Modern grow LCD lights are cool and energy efficient. You dont need CO2 unless you are maximizing the space. If its just a couple plants for personal then you will never see the gains from the CO2. The lights dont need to be on 24 hours at the start and you dont need to gradually reduce the hours. You can have the lights on 18 hours a day and then when you cut the hours down to force flower you want 12 hours of light - not 14.

The point about odor is well taken and you do want a  little fan to keep air moving. Your biggest worries are powdery mildew, spider mites, and your neighbor's brother who figured out you have pot that he wants.

Its easy to grow but pretty complicated to grow well. I know some people that drop 5-10k on setups every time they move. Don't understand how renters do it, but hey, its a livin'. I guess.
