Well, that depends on your circumstances... This perpetual debate between Soil Vs. Hydroponics, or ‘Dro’ for the truly lazy - is a debate that is generally determined by the size and location of your potential grow space. There are many that ride the fence on this topic – and it safe to say that either technique will get you where you need to go. The next ‘Hot Topic’ on the relatively long list for most aficionados is whether naturally sun grown (outdoor) measures up to the dank indoor chronic. Good luck!
