How to begin.
    #335767 - 12/24/09 03:14 AM (6 years, 11 months ago)

Admittedly, I can not grow mold, but I have recently decided that I wanted to try to grow some smoke.


I started looking around here, kinda just checking to see what was going on and so forth.

Now I am a bit intimidated by the idea that the idea that there is so much involved in it. I want to try and grow a male plant first, just because they are so pretty, and I love the way that they smell. I want to see if I can do about three plants up like bamboo and twine them all up.

I think that would be cool. I wonder if it can be done.

I guess we shall see.

If you grow males, you aren't growing smoke, you're growing ornamental plants.  Only females produce quality, smokable, bud.

Also, you can't choose a male plant.  If you grow from seed, it will be either male or female, and you won't know which until a month or so in when it starts showing preflowers.

You could, of course, twine three plants together, but if you do so, you'll have that display for about 3 months before they die because cannabis is an annual.  You could keep it alive longer, but it won't really smell 1) because females have a stronger odor, 2) if you don't want it to die you have to keep it in veg indefinitely, so it won't have any flowers.  This is silly, because basically you're risking your freedom with an illegal plant, and not getting any of the benefits of growing an illegal plant.

If you want a house plant...grow a chefflera, or some bamboo.  You won't go to jail for those.

I feel your pain i have been in front of my computer for about 48 hours now and i haven't really left these boards. I found some of the best info in the Doctors Diagnosis section so far. but these folks really have things layed out nice just go to topic you have a question in and start with the stickies.

Oh and this thread is just what you should do first i guess http://www.growery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/309193

In reality, I dont know if I can find any of the things listed on here, and think I may try the old fashioned way, germinate in some light soil, transplant to a 5 gallon bucket and go.

I mean, I know heat and humidity, and I get the fan and all that, but when it comes down to the chemicals...its just way over my head and honestly, I feel kind of stupid trying to figure it all out.

But thats why Im here, right?

Ive killed countless plants, and had one that grew in a closet, in a bathroom, surrounded by foil in miracle grow.

Probably the most ghetto set up ever, right?  But I got a bad ass plant that was about 5 feet tall and had some thumb to first finger sized buds on it.

I loved that guy. All 3 ounces of it.

I think it would be cool to just see how big I can get them and what they would look like.

I admit, I kind of got discouraged reading guy's post up there.

I mean, I'll tell any one, I am an epic noob at this. The one plant I got to bud was a fluke according to everything I have read here.

Morning: in talkin to folks here over the last week as i give myself a crash course i have realized one thing. its a damn weed it will grow if it has enough light water and nutes. and it will grow with really low amounts of all that. seems that most all the problems i have read over in the doctors section have been over watering or over feeding.

And as for the soil mixes there is great stuff out there but again it will grow in any decent dirt you just wont get the best possible yield.

Don't get discouraged just make sure you are taking the risk for the right reasons

And that's where you're wrong!  While it might not be as convenient as buying stuff from a hydro shop, you can find everything you need at your local home depot, lowes, wal mart, and garden stores.  If you don't mind modifying things that is :wink:  The hardware stores are where you can find your lighting, ventilation, odor control, fans, etc.  Wal mart will help you with things like plant containers, Ph testing kits, small fans etc.  Finally, if you can't buy bottled nutrients, you can amend good soil with things found at your local garden store.  Things like bone and fish meal, good soil (steer clear of miracle gro and the like, not a good way to go), perlite, vermiculite, P + K soil additives.  By doing some research and learning how to mix in the amendments, you can build a soil that only needs water to grow and still produces some nice buds.

So, don't think that because you don't have access to a hydro store, or can't shop online, that you're forced use less then optimal equipment.  If you do some research on this site, and ask some questions, you can find lots of information on DIY projects and modifying common household items for your grow.
