Hey Everyone,

As i'm new to growing and have a million and one questions, but one has me kind of stumped. this companion planting thing, is it really beneficial to the plants or is it just complete bollix? and a waste of good feed?

Iv seen it abit aswell, but i think it seems kinda weird to do indoors, i dont really see how the plants would benefit the cannabis plant, or the medium really, as we already manage those and having more plants too manage just seems abit unecessary for me. but outdoors i quess i could see it benefit the plant as it will bring insects and stuff to enrich the zone but, but i dont really grow outdoors so i dont know alot about that

@qqnpk

ah i see its for mainly outdoors, i was thinking that it would make a tent extremely tight and with having to have epic sized pots you might only get one plant per 4ft tent, and not very efficient

companion planting is a good practice for outdoor growing.  Attracting beneficial insects, replenishing your soil etc.. a few people are trying to use organic "living soil" indoors which can benefit from nitrogen fixing companion crops.

Yeah, Phil is bang on. Beneficial insects, replenishing the soil, warding off bad ones (Marigolds, for example - I plant em in my outdoor garden every year as attract good bugs, and they are purported to excrete compounds from their roots that repel harmful nematodes that can mess with your plants).  The indoor versions are more for people who want to re-use their soil in a future grow, usually very soon if not immediately after the current one. Nitrogen-fixing species are most commonly used - legumes, clover (like @mossbeardmitch has in his Jack grow), alfalfa, but I've also seen herbs like basil, thyme, and oregano used as well. You could have a pretty sweet little herb garden for sure.

I run 'supersoil', but I don't generally practice it for the reason that I don't re-use my soil (at least not for cannabis), and I like to be able to see the soil surface to aerate/add amendments (if necessary)/etc., and to basically just have less to deal with.
