    Growing weed can seem so complicated, but it's probably just because you don't have the right information. Growing weed is actually pretty easy and anyone with a few extra minutes a day and a spare closet can grow weed. You see, even for those who can legally grow marijuana, there aren't many simple resources that explain from start to finish what you need to do to grow cannabis successfully, especially if you're on a budget or only have a small space to work with.​

    Cannabis is a weed in the wild and can actually be really easy to grow, but it can seem impossible to get started if you don't know what to do. Cannabis plants are weeds with simple needs. In order to thrive and grow, your weed needs:
    1. Light (this has the biggest effect on yields)
    2. Air (well-ventilated with a slight breeze is best)
    3. A Grow Medium (place to grow, soil isn't your only choice)
    4. The right Temperature (room temperature or a little warmer is perfect during the day, cannot stand freezing at night)
    5. Nutrients (usually half as much as what's recommended on the package)
    6. Water (maintain pH for best results, 6.0-7.0 for soil and 5.5-6.5 for hydroponics)
    When growing marijuana plants indoors or outdoors, you will need to ensure that it gets the proper amount of all six of these resources. One of the most common mistakes made by new weed growers is to conduct spur-of-the-moment experiments and kill their plants. You should always at least do a quick Google search before you try any new technique. You don't want to lose your entire crop to something that has already been tried before and proven not to work, so make sure you do a little research and experiment with caution and moderation.

    Another common problem new growers have is the tendency to skip crucial steps like maintaining a proper pH or getting the right kind of nutrients. While you can get lucky and succeed at growing weed without taking these steps, you are a lot more likely to end up plants that die or just never produce any buds. It can actually be really easy to grow marijuana, so start by reading this simple grow guide and you will have all the knowledge you need to start producing your own potent buds today!

    There are many considerations to take into account when deciding whether to grow your plant indoors or outdoors. These are two major ways to grow. Some people will use a mixture of the two and grow their plants indoors during the vegetative stage when they need constant light, then transport them outdoors when they are ready to start flowering and only need 12 hours of light a day.

    Choose your growing medium is what you will grow your plants in. You can successfully grow marijuana plants in soil and other sorts of non-soil (soil-less) mediums, or you could grow your plants directly in water or even in moist air! Each growing medium that you use will have different care and watering requirements. You may want to research the different options and choose something that's right for your grow area and experience level.

    If it's your first grow, I personally recommend learning how to grow weed with something easy like coco coir, and then feeding your plants according to a regular hydroponic feeding schedule (at half-strength to start). You will get great results without having to invest much money or time.

    You left out humidity control. Even with ventilation, many grow rooms will get too humid, leading to moldy buds and a lot of wasted effort.
