It is important to learn about the amount of cannabis that you intend to plant. This will help you understand the resources you will need to accumulate. It is also very important to learn on the kind of weed you are growing. There are two kinds of plant systems. There is the passive and there is the active. The passive setup is the easiest to start and maintain. However, it will take more time than that of the active grower. The passive growing system will require standard material such as glass boxes, wick-systems or even simple pots. This is however commonly used by beginners or those that do it for small scale. However, for the active growers, you will need advanced growers which are quite expensive but it will really pay off after a while. You can also decide to use soil or use organic mixes.

One of the quick and easy way to grow cannabis is to have a grow tent, which delivers optimum environment such as full spectrum grow lights and ventilation. The reflective inner surface helps trap the lights inside the tent, and thus optimize the efficiency of the grow lights.

2’ x 2’ grow tents are ideal for the beginner grower or growers with limited space. It can accommodate 4 small plants or 2 medium plants from veg to flower and is perfect for use as a seedling and clone tent. Growing plants in a grow tent will allow you to completely control your growing environment, will help keep your garden free of pests and contaminants, and contains any potential mess created from the growing process. This size indoor grow tent is also commonly used as a “mother tent”. Mother tents are used to keep your favorite strains in the veg stage long term so you can take cuttings as you need them so you always have clones ready to grow.

Since you are growing indoors, you’ll have to select a grow light to replace the sun. There are several different types of grow lights and unfortunately, there is no ‘best’. Choosing a grow light comes down to the dimensions of your space, your budget, your growing goals, and your power limitations. The good news is, lighting technology has improved over recent years and nearly all lights — HPS, CMH, LED, and DE will work.

ECO farm LED grow light simulate sunlight. We use the new professional full spectrum (380–800nm) to ensure your ladies great yields. This sunlike full spectrum has been proven and used by plant factory and our grow lab. It contains every kind of light that plants needed. And it provides plants Veg and Bloom two stages with everything they desire in the natural sunlight, protects eyes more, plants clear more.

SMD LED GROW LIGHT: SMD LEDs mount on the surface of electronic boards directly but do not physically go through the boards like other types of LEDs. Another important feature of SMD is miniaturization. Reducing the size of the LED means it can dissipate heat better, reduce working temperature, increase product life. Miniaturization also makes it possible to place more LEDs in one board but do not worry about burn out. More powerful than other types of grow light at the same price.

PPFD MONSTER: High PAR grow light with 120pcs SMD led beads.This 450W LED grow light can replace traditional 450W HPS/MH while consuming only 120 watts! PAR value 608μmol/m2·s when it’s on 12’’ high. 2.5’x2.5’ effective vegetative coverage at 18” and 2×2’ effective flowering coverage at 12”.

  • 315w Ceramic Discharge Metal Halide grow light kit delivers a light spectrum that’s much closer to natural sunlight than typical high intensity discharge (HID) systems. A higher temperature creating light much closer to the sun’s. Being able to operate more efficiently at higher temperatures means a boost in performance, Coverage area is 4ft*4ft,that means bigger harvest and less cost
  • Size:18″ Long x 9.5″ Wide x 10″ High,Input 16AWG/3C SJTW 105℃ 300V Cord, 110V, 5–15P Plug , L=16FT
  • The lamp is optimized for the bloom phase with enhanced reds, but, because it’s full-spectrum, it will produce the goods in both vegetable and flower — expect to see increased growth rates, tighter internodes, an improvement in overall vigor and an increase in final weight.
  • Degradation time: Standard MH bulbs have a lifetime of around 10,000 Hours. Which is less than 50% of the 24,000 Hours that CMH are rated for

An extraction fan is essential for keeping temps down and supplying the plants with the fresh air (C02) they need to thrive. Note that you do not necessarily need an extraction fan if you are running a sealed room — but you will need an A/C and CO2 generator, which is a significantly more expensive alternative. I’ve written a more in-depth article that explains why you might choose a sealed room over a vented room.

As the plants enter the flowering phase, they start to give off that pungent odor we all know and love — unless you’re the neighbors. Carbon filters are the answer to that terpene-rich, skunky weed smell. You definitely don’t want to get a cheap carbon filter — make sure you stick to reputable brands when it comes to this essential piece of equipment!

Although not glamorous, ducting is a crucial item in your garden’s ventilation system. For smaller grows, I recommend flexible, insulated ducting — the insulation helps keep the heat (caused by the hot air) from radiating into your growing area. I recommend using 6 inch ducting at a minimum; larger grows will benefit from larger diameter ducting.

Rotating / Oscilating Fan

Rotating fans provide constant air circulation inside your tent, preventing mold growth, and helping to strengthen your cannabis plant’s stems and branches.

Choose an oscillating fan like the one above that can be mounted on the frame of your grow tent. This keeps it out of the way.

To ensure an optimum yield, you will need to make sure your room or tents are at the correct temperature and at the optimum humidity. A combination of thermometer and hygrometer will allow you to do just that, and they are cheap at less than $10. So, buy one!

Small Pots (One to Two Gallons):

To prevent over watering, you’ll use small pots for weed clones and also marijuana seedlings. Every plant should have its own pot.

Large Pots (Five To Seven Liters) :

Large pots are where you want to transfer your plants when they get bigger and begin flowering.

This should have actually been the first point. This is because the quality of your cannabis will be determined by the see you grow. There can be cross-breed and there is the generic cannabis. There is a high need to determine this so as to determine the kind of treatment to give to each of these plants. The seeds will actually determine the conditions and even the input to be used on the plant in terms of insecticides, nutrients and planting methods favorable for each of them. This is simply why you will find that expert cannabis growers clearly label each of their plants. Become an expert cannabis grower as soon.

Peat Pellets Assist Germination

Peat pellets are one of the best ways to germinating your seeds. They are very affordable and also very reliable. They are also very easy to use. The peat pellets are usually round brownish sort of pills. They are soaked in water to soften them up then you defuse your seed into them and this will provide the required care and nutrients your seed will need to germinate. This is almost a sure bet on the healthy germination of your seed.

A PH meter measures the PH levels of your water and soil.

Maintaining a good PH level is vital when growing cannabis.

If your PH levels are too high or too low, your plant will not be getting the correct nutrients required to flourish.

Ideal soil pH is between 6.0 and 7.0, while hydroponics ideal PH is between 5.5 and 6.5.

PH meters are easy to use, you just stick them in your soil or the water you’re about to pour on your plants and they will give you a reading.

When growing indoors you will want to, as best as you can, mimic the outdoors. So, as the sun doesn’t shine 24 hours a day, you’ll need to turn your lights on and off during the day. Granted, if you don’t have a timer, you can turn your lights off and on manually. But, without a light timer, to assure a good harvest you’ll need to stay home and manually turn your lights on and off. Basically, a timer is essential equipment if you want to have a social life.

The final piece to the puzzle is ensuring you have access to clean, filtered water. The sad fact is that most city water is less than ideal for growing cannabis — its full of contaminants, chlorine, chloramine, fluoride — the list goes on. You don’t need an expensive filter, and if you can’t afford one, you still have two other options — go to the grocery store and fill a 5-gallon jug with RO water for 25 cents per gallon, or get some air stones and bubble the water for a minimum of 24 hours.
