Ultimate guide to growing Marijuana indoors
Whether you’re new to gardening or you’ve been flexing that green thumb your entire life, there are plenty of reasons to consider growing marijuana indoors.
Not only will you be able to reap all the physical and psychological benefits of gardening, but you’ll also have the opportunity to create your own cash crop – which you can keep for yourself or give to others.
If you’re new to the hobby, you should consider this ultimate guide to growing marijuana indoors.
Create Your Set-Up
When it comes to growing marijuana, you’ll need a few basic tools. Assuming you’re growing indoors (this will allow you the greatest level of control over your plants’ growth) you will need a grow room or box, some lights, a timer, a fan, a carbon filter, a hygrometer, and a thermometer.
Buy Your Seeds
Next, you’ll need to purchase some seeds. Deciding which kind of seed is right for you can be tricky, but think about the strains of marijuana you’ve enjoyed in the past. You can also consider the different properties of both indica and sativa strains.
While indica tends to produce a calm and relaxing high, sativa is known for being more energizing. Hybrid options are also available. Then, you can choose from auto-flowering or high-yield strains, depending on your desired level of performance and control of your light schedule.
Sprout Some Seeds
Now it’s time to plant your seeds! Do this on a set of damp paper towels, as you can see in this infographic. Once the seedlings emerge (it will take a few days or weeks) you can move them to your growing medium. This can be soil, coco coir, or a hydroponics set-up.
Finalize The Growth
Once your seeds are planted, it’s a waiting game as your plants move through the vegetative and flowering stages. You’ll need to do things like supply water, light, and nutrients, but otherwise, growing marijuana will be a mostly hands-off affair.
And the best part?
Once your leaves are heavy with frosty-looking buds, it’s time to harvest – and enjoy the rewards of all of your hard work!
