7 Steps Weed Grow Guide Easily Grow Quality Cannabis
Step 1: Selecting the location of your growFirst step to that is going to be deciding are we doing an indoor grow or an outdoor grow. Now if you do decide to go outdoor, I really recommend going with the greenhouse because that’s going to be the best way to prevent any issues such as pest or mold from getting on the plant and messing up your yields. Now you’ll also want to have a place that is going to have a lot of direct sunlight for that grow. Because in a greenhouse, obviously you can have supplemental lighting hanging up in there by having grow lights in the tent, but you want to mainly be using that sun. So be sure to pick an area that is outside indirect sunlight for most of the day. If you don’t have that, then I would highly suggest and recommend growing indoors. Now the other reason I really like indoors is I feel that you can get better quality results, and here’s actually a current grow I’m doing right now, a photoperiod grow. But I find it’s a lot easier to maintain actually your plants because you don’t have to counteract the weather and make sure that the conditions are always on point inside the greenhouse. With an indoor tent that isn’t affected, because you’re inside the house. So the temperature is pretty constant. So you can pretty much just automate and set up everything, and really a hassle free way of growing. Outdoor is a really great way to grow, and it is very environmentally friendly. It’s just a little more challenging to get that top quality product. So that is step one on the guide, deciding whether you want to grow indoors or outdoors. Again, my recommendation is indoor because it is going to be easier. And a lot of people think, oh, outdoor in a greenhouse will be cheaper. And it is if you’re just going 100% natural. You know, no supplemental lighting or anything like that. But if you’re somewhere where you’re going to need fans or maybe a heater inside, it could get pretty costly trying to maintain ideal temperatures and conditions in that greenhouse. So that is the first thing to think about.
Step 2: How to be stealth for those of you who have to be secretive and hidden about itIt could be done outside in greenhouse if you could hide it along the side of your house or if you have a large property. But at night, especially if you’re using supplemental lighting, it’s going to be pretty obvious. So this is the stealth grow. There are a few components to being stealth with the grow. First off, having your grow hidden in a location that is low traffic and isn’t going to have a lot of people coming in and out. You don’t want to have it out in the open, obviously. So that’s why I suggest a closet or some sort of furniture that you can put it inside of. Obviously it’s going to have to be a larger piece for that. But one of the biggest components of being stealth is about who you tell. So if you tell a bunch of your friends, family, stuff like that, it’s going to be a little more easy for people to find out about it. Whereas if you just keep it a secret to yourself, it’ll be a lot easier to keep that a secret.
- So first step, finding that location you can hide it in.
- Second step, keeping the smell under control as well as the noise. So you’re going to want to use appliances that are low wattage and aren’t super loud or powerful so that you can’t hear them once the closet is all closed up.
- And then you’re also going to want to make sure that you have a carbon filter system set up in here so that you can keep that smell down.
- So that’s going to be the biggest thing or biggest indicator giving you away is if you have that smell of nice bud just billowing out of your tent, it’s going to be pretty obvious what’s going on. So step two of the official GreenBox Grown grow guide is how to keep your setup stealth if need be.
