Where to Grow?
If you’re planning to grow outdoors it’s wise to check your provincial & local laws. Some areas have tighter regulations when it comes to growing at home, you don’t need those problems (but check with your landlord or lease if you are renting).
In my opinion, picking a location for your grow outside is mostly based on 3 things:
a) The amount of time the area has sunlight throughout the day.
c) Last but not least, how secure is my garden. you don’t want uninvited guests coming to ruin your hard work. mostly people but animals can cause some damage as well.
You need very little when purchasing supplies for growing outdoors.
Choosing a seed bank & genetics – there’s a ton of options for seedbanks & genetics, everyone has their own opinion & experience. My best advice is to invest some time, do your research… seriously read reviews, ask Reddit!
2.GROWING MEDIUM (Soil, Hydroponics, etc.)
Choosing a growing medium comes down to personal preference as well. The only thing I will suggest is using a soil that is not chemically enhanced.
3. Pots / Buckets
I started with 5Gal buckets & drilled holes in the bottom for drainage. it really doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive just make sure it’s clean.
A note on nutrients:
Remember growing cannabis at home doesn’t have to be rocket science! Keep it simple, fun & to make things easier on yourself keep notes!
