[Sticky] Growing Cannabis, Without Getting Caught, 3 Simple Rules
Growing cannabis without getting caught, is not impossible, you just have to follow a few rules. These 3 simple rules will keep you and your crop safe. There is a lot to learn when you first start to learn how to grow cannabis. But nothing is as important as these rules.
If you live in a country where cannabis is illegal, there is a lot of risk, and these rules are made even more important. Follow them at all costs, and never break them.
I have known many weed growers in the past, from all over the world. All growing in their own different ways, with different kinds of setups, and different strains.
They have all been able to provide themselves with their own personal supply of cannabis, and they have never had any trouble with authorities. This is because they just follow the 3 rules!
Don't ever forget, cannabis is a valuable plant! Even if you live in a country where cultivation is legalised, you should still take care to keep the grow concealed! Security is number one priority!
Growing Cannabis, Without Getting Caught
There are just three rules you must follow, if you want to grow cannabis without getting caught!
If you break any of these rules you put yourself, your property, and your freedom at risk! You must do your part to stay safe.
We also do not want to fund the black market. We only support growers who grow for personal use. You do not have to become a criminal, just because you grow weed.
3 Simple Rules
1: Don’t Tell!
The only person, who should ever know about your “Percy Grow”, is you (and spouse if you have one).
Do not tell, ANYONE!! You have to stay safe. I know you may have a friend or two who you can trust, but it’s just not worth the risk. One friend can easily tell another in secrecy, who will then tell another friend in secrecy. Before you know it, the wrong person will find out about your grow.
If you would like to talk about your new hobby, we offer a safe place for you to do so in our Cannabis Growers Forum. You can get help with your grow, share your knowledge, and enjoy growing with like minded people. Sign up
2. Don’t sell
This is a site for Percy Growers only. We do not support cannabis sales of any kind. you are here to learn to grow your own supply of marijuana, please do not become part of the problem, by becoming the part of the unregulated!
There is one of the major causes of a grower being caught, and that is by becoming a drug dealer! Growing cannabis without being caught is possible, but selling it is much harder!
For a start, you have customers, and each and everyone one of them can be caught with cannabis, and give your name up! Also, it's not just authorities you have to worry about, but also other criminals too.
3. Cover The Smell
Some cannabis users do not grow their own, because they are concerned about the smell.
When a cannabis plant is heavily into flower, the aroma is thick, and pungent. The scent will spread further than you think! It will make your house smell, and your close by neighbours will notice it.
You need to respect the fact that some people do not like the smell of weed. Just like you have the right to grow and smoke a personal amount of cannabis, your neighbours also have the right to live without a smell they dislike.
If you break rule number one, and two, you’re asking for trouble. It is crucial that you follow these rules!
You can grow your own cannabis without getting caught, but even if you do get caught, you have only been growing for personal use. If you're are selling your weed, then you can not use that as an argument in your favour!
Most growers like you, just want to have a personal supply of cannabis, so they don't have to go into the unregulated market to get it. The black market is a dangerous place. We are trying to reduce the damage done by the black market, don't become part of it.
There are many ways you can cover the scent of your cannabis grow.
It's not just a case of hiding the smell from authorities. It's also a case of being respectful to those who live around you.
Be sure to be friendly and respectful to your neighbours. Then, even if they do get an idea that you're growing, they are less inclined to call the authorities.
Be Safe when Growing Cannabis!
Pay for your equipment legally. Pay your electricity bills on time. There is no need to become a criminal, just because you are growing your own marijuana.
Think about how much cannabis you use in a week. Your grow will take around 16 weeks to finish. So, take how much weed you use in a week, multiply it by 16. That is what you are aiming for, for your final yield.
Now you have an idea of what size grow tent you will need for this amount of cannabis, see our guide on grow tents
Only grow the amount of cannabis you need. Follow these rules and don’t break them. As a result, you will never have any trouble growing your own weed at home.
Is Growing Cannabis Easy?
Yes, much easier than you think. with prior planning, and good advice on setting up, you can grow your own weed at home easily. Not only will you have your own supply, but it is an amazing hobby you will enjoy.
How Much Does it Cost to Start Growing Weed?
You can start growing cannabis for free! It is easy to win seeds in our competitions. You can get setup, for less than the price of one ounce of cannabis from the unregulated market, or dispensary.
How do You Cover The Smell?
Carbon filters are the home growers best friend! They are linked up to your extraction, and as air passes through it, it is “scrubbed”, and the smell is removed. BEWARE OF CHEAP FILTERS!!
Will I get Caught Growing Cannabis?
If you don’t follow the 3 rules, then yes, you may be caught. Keep your grow small enough to supply yourself, and do not ever tell anyone, don’t ever sell your product, and always cover the smell of your grow.
How Many Cannabis Plants Should I Grow?
Four is a great amount for one average cannabis user to grow. With help of the experienced growers in the forum, you can get 4 Oz per plant, and have enough of your own weed to get you through to the end of the next grow
Don't get Greedy!
One more thing before we move on, don't get greedy!! It can be tempting to always grow more plants if you have room for them. But the more plants you have, the more risk you take.

Yeah, meant to comment on this last night but ya know, weed.
This is very good advice. Even here in Canada with legalization, we are still seeing/hearing about people having their gardens robbed, houses broken into, dogs threatened, etc. Best to just avoid all of this and keep it to yourself.

Who me? I’m not growing anything 😉
in all seriousness, the best way to stay safe by far. The part about growing more than you need is the most difficult IMO. I’d love another half dozen ladies in the dorm but we really don’t need them. Been looking at larger tents lately, maybe this is a good reminder that I don’t need to do that.
why do we as so many questions but listen to so few answers?
As long as you got enough to supply yourself till next harvest, its not worth going bigger IMO. 1.2 x 1.2m tent is a perfect size, with a veg tent on the side, you'll never buy weed again
