On a Quest for the Ganja Queen.
    #598747 - 11/27/11 07:49 PM (5 years, 10 days ago)

I know that I am rather new to the growery, but I am an active member of the shroomery. Now I have made a decision to breed an old friend of mine.... MARY JANE. I am totally unaware about how to grow marijuana plants and would like assistance. I know I can learn how to grow by exploring online or reading a book. But I have other intentions. In my opinion, I would rather come to the growery for help and learn from those who are experienced and know what there talking about. Im trying to cut the bullshit. I have an indoor grow space and I am willing to put time, money, and effort into doing this if someone helps open the doors for me. Im trying to grow a pretty nice exotic plant, no reggie for me man. If theres anyone out there who could personally respond and help weather it be in this thread or a private message it would be much appreciated. Im generally just looking for a simple list of supplies, and instructions on what to do. thanks cuhzoo.

Supplies:

Grow medium (suggest soil for a first timer)
Lighting (a lot to consider here)
Seeds (buy feminized seeds online to get a guarantee)
Nutrients (also a lot of choices)
Ventilation (fans and what have you)

Those are the bare bones minimum. You might also want to invest in a ph tester (with ph up and down) and I'm sure I'm forgetting some other things. I suggest starting with Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil. That is a pretty accepted standard for prebagged soil, and not all that much more expensive than the alternatives. I also suggest the Fox Farms trio of grow nutrients...easy for a beginner, relatively cheap, and is very good at what it does.

Lighting, you'll want to shoot for about 150 watts of light per (large) plant. There are ways around this (training your plants, short veg time, etc), but I wouldn't stick more than 4 plants under a 150w personally. You can achieve sufficient lighting with CFL (compact fluorescent lighting) but many people prefer to switch over to HPS lighting during flower (high pressure sodium). Flowering is when your buds will be stacking and building, so its what people tend to invest more in.

Seeds...ugh, seeds. There are too many choices. I highly suggest Chronic by Serious Seeds. Its newbie friendly, easy to grow and produced one of my favorite smokes. I've heard bad reviews from others (here and elsewhere) but it really did good by me.

You will want to keep a constant circulation of air through your grow room...be it a large fan placed inside, or a few fans blowing exhaust and intake.

As for the growing, I'll try to give you the simplest most direct instructions I possibly can.

You're going to want to start out your seeds in the soil. You can soak them over night in a shotglass with a little water to soften them up, or just pop them directly in the soil. Dampen the soil but don't drench it. The soil should be moist. Plant it 1 inch deep (first joint in your finger). Place it under the lights (4 inches away for CFL, more for HID lighting) for at least 18 hours of light per day. Its very possible to just use 24/7, but you're going to need a timer for flowering anyway.

Within a few days, the seeds should be popping out of the soil. Don't over water - this is where many new growers fuck up. I'm not even sure how to tell you how to water.

After a week or so you'll want to give the plants a light feeding. Follow the nutrient schedule available to you online (just search your nutrient lines schedule). Follow that for a few weeks...

Then you switch the lights over to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark. Keep in mind that the dark needs to be DARK. No light leaks. The plant will stretch to almost double its height during flower. At this point, you start feeding the plant flowering nutrients (again, according to your schedule).

You'll want to look at your seeds estimated grow time (and generally add 2 weeks to it or so) and keep it growing.

Eventually you chop down the plant, trim off the leafs, dry the buds slowly over a week or two, put them in a glass jar and smoke smoke smoke.

That is the very basics...and I'm sure you'll have questions as you go. Just post and we'll do our best to answer.

One more post... apologies if that isn't very coherent. I'm fairly baked (7/10) and getting distracted by Always Sunny as I type lol.

Great advice Rasjeph;  :2cents: paper towel method.

In order to grow good weed you need to be part carpenter, electrician, plumber, biologist, geneticist, chemist, and very willing to get dirty.

I've been working with power tools since I was 8, my dad is an electrical engineer who owned a 280 gal fish tank, and I studied biology with a specialty in genetics. Getting dirty comes naturally. I think my parents inadvertently trained me to be a weed grower.

See what you think on my first try.
