Startup and general questions
    #813911 - 05/22/16 04:08 PM (1 year, 2 months ago)

Hi all,

I just have a couple of general questions that I hope you can help me with.

Thankfully I live in a medical state and am interested in growing for medicinal
reasons.

My questions are the following:

I want to grow at least ~400 grams a year.
In your opinion, what is the best method to do so? (TEKS, Lighting type, strain, soil VS. hydro,
etc.)
How much would it cost me to get started?
How do I cut down on the utility costs? LED light source?

If someone could give me a general idea of my preceding concerns, that'd be great.

Personally I like the sea of green concept. This method works best with indica strains. Ideally you want to yeild a ounce or more per plant.

This is mags pic.



If you grow 20 plants under a 1000 water with Dixie's like mag you should be good.

Note this method doesn't work so well with seeds only clones.

Thanks for the input but 20 individual plants sounds like a lot to deal with.

Also, I will be starting from seed. I'm too paranoid to drive around with cuttings.

Is there a way to grow 3 to 5 full sized plants that will yield around a pound?
I'm thinking that growing a strain such as big bud and picking the colas might
work? Thoughts?

Read up on SCROG method.
You can fill a room with just one plant if you please.
Don't go with solo cups, you'll be watering and feeding multiple times a day.
It can become a real pain in the ass honestly.
Not to mention using only 20 under a 1000 watts would be much wased space, you'd want more like 64 of them. 4 per square foot when doing SOG.

This can be done every harvest fairly easily with 600 watt or greater.
I recommend the 1000 watter myself
Averages about lb or greater per harvest.

Best method SCROG.
light 1000 HPS
Strain pretty much any easy skunk for beginners.
Soil or hydro is a personal choice pick one and study up on it.

Every out the door roughly 1500 and up.

Watts are watts so adding some solar panwls is my best answer.

Awesome advice, man. Thanks!

I just watched some SCROG videos and it looks wild.

I'm going to go with this, but on a smaller scale for my first grow.
I figure I can get a good idea of what I'm doing and not lose too much
if I screw up somehow.

Stoneth, do you cure your bud a certain way or do you just hang it up?
I'd like to get the best taste and smell possible, so this is something
you'd have to do, correct? There's a 'pif' or 'kush' taste that I'm aiming
for, if that makes any sense at all. It isn't necessarily derived from a kush strain,
but is simply a strong, sharp taste with a striking aroma.

I cure for no less than sixty days.

That's about the best write up I've seen.
And fairly easy to follow.
