Howdy folks hope you're all stoned out your nut I'm interested in growing my own for medicinal purposes. I'm greener than the gear you're probably toking rn. 

My budget is piss poor employment support allowance & it's been cut 3 times already this year. Tories are c*nts. 

Okay that's the political shit out the way let's get talking. I heard tomato tents are the best option. They come with all the extras required for success. Thing is they're expensive on a tight budget. So I'm now saving the pennies and thought I'd take the opportunity to get as much info as I can muster in the meantime. Obviously information is paramount as it's clearly become a PhD with honours degree subject to learn and I'm thick as shit. 

Anyways thanks for listening and any information that will help is greatly appreciated. 

Cheers

Thank you for the welcome. My main query about this is what is the best soil and nutrients. How often do you feed them. How do I know if I've got a dud seed that I'm trying to grow.

well you will only know after you plant it lol. But most seeds are good mate.

Soil is the cheapest way to grow, a bag from B n Q, fill a pot plant a seed, and water it a couple of times a week. Transplant as it get bigger, and you wont need food until its in flower.

So it's no that difficult as I thought ? I'm guessing getting the correct environment for growing i.e. a tomato tent or similar is clearly the main benefits between success or failure. Thanks bro I'm optimistic about my chances now.

Just my 2 cents here but even a white cupboard could house a small set up. U just need air flow and some light. If they cant breathe they cant grow. If they dont have light....they also wont grow. 

 Stay tuned here....there's some good advice here for sure and it's super friendly man....love this place. It's really easy....and easy to overthink....remember this.....they are weeds....they will live....but to live with Grade AAAA flowers....is a bit harder. 

Let it groooowwww...let it GROOOOWWW!!!

Not really between success & failure...more like compared to a plant with a yield of 50grams & one of 250grams...Cannabis is a member of the Nettle family and will grow anywhere but to get the best out of it i.e massive buds...you have to get the environment right & the feeds right, this is where the skill comes in...

Light , fresh air & water is all they really require to grow Smile

Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.
