Keep reading if you’re ready to flex your green thumb and get started as a first-time grower.
1. Pick the Right Room to Grow
The first step is picking a 420-friendly space that can provide the climate the cannabis needs.
This space doesn’t have to be your typical grow room, it can be a closet or a corner in your basement.
It just needs to be able to accommodate both the plants and equipment needed to grow.
Also, as you pick a place, keep temperature and humidity concerns in mind.
It’s best to choose a cool, dry area to start off with.
If you pick a very humid or warm space, you may end up dealing with growth issues.
2. Start Small
As a first-time grower, it’s best to start out small.
The last thing you want to do is invest a ton of time and money in your plant growth only to fail, especially when first-time growers are more likely to run into setbacks.
So, start with a few smaller plants, as they’re less expensive.
It’ll also be a lot easier to monitor your plants to make sure they’re growing properly.
Worst case scenario if you accidentally kill your plants?
You can always head to the nearest dispensary to re-up.
3. Plan Big
While it’s good to start small, you need to be prepared for growth.
That’s because cannabis plants can grow and even triple in size.
So, make sure you’re ready to accommodate that growth and have all the tools and equipment you need for that.
However, remember there are local and state laws that limit the amount of cannabis you can grow for personal consumption.
Make sure you stay within the legal confines of how much you can actively grow and posses during the process.
4. Set Time Aside
As a first-time grower, it’s important to have time set aside to properly monitor your plants.
These plants need to be monitored daily, and you may want to check in on them every couple hours.
So, put your plants in an easily accessible space, and ask friends and family to help monitor them if you have to go away.
5. Pick the Right Grow Lights
Light quality is one of the most important factors in overall cannabis yield.
The industry standard is high-intensity discharge light.
These lights are great during vegetative growth and for support during the flowering stage.
There are also fluorescent grow lights and LED grow lights, which have pros and cons as well.
So, before you buy think about your budget, how many plants you have, and what you’ll need to set your plants up for success.
Also, remember to keep your lights on a proper natural grow cycle as to mimic the sun.
That’s another huge factor in determining the success and yield of your cannabis crop.
6. Make Sure to Feed Your Cannabis Plants Proper Nutrients
If you want to grow high-quality cannabis, you need to make sure they’re getting all the macronutrients they need like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
A great way to ensure this is by using a pre-fertilized organic soil mix.
If you don’t have that, you’ll need to feed your plants once a week with the proper nutrient solution.
