So, i'll confess it, i haven't taken the first tep yet and started growing my first plant, why?

Guys, to be honest I don't want to mess up. I have little resources and can't afford making avoidable mistakes ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ I would appreciate if you could tell me those problems you never considered were going to be problems until you were already there... The most i can prevent, the most grateful i'll be with you!

@smokeyeye Hi welcome to Percys, the best advice I can give you is just start growing and worry about problems later, I sat worrying about things like that and thinking it looked too difficult.... and a few years later I still hadnt started growing.

Get some seeds and start growing, the guys here will help you with any problems along the way.

I only started growing last november and I didnt have a clue what I was doing, but its not really all that difficult, The most difficult part is actually getting round to planting your first seed, once you get that done you will have a plant before you know it Smile ย

The only thing I would worry about, is having enough time daily to be and hang with my girls, learning to see them, listen to them, observe them, talk to them. In hindsight, time is the only thing I should have paid more attention to from the beginning. Anything else, like Stootie said, just start growing and you'll learn by dealing with things

Smokeyeye...its a myth that this plant is hard to grow...take it easy, breathe slowly and enjoy and most of all 'less is more' ๐Ÿ˜‰

You're in the right place...we wont let you fail

@smokeyeye ย we all have been in your position. My best advice is to ask questions before you buy stuff, especially expensive stuff. We all have wasted money on junk and because we did, you donโ€™t have to make the same mistakes. We have found it better to buy the right equipment first and avoid the cheap piece of crap that you will replace in 6 months. Ask as many questions as you feel you need to, we really donโ€™t mind. Lots of us read all the posts and helping new growers is what Percyโ€™s is all about.ย 

Random acts of kindness make the world a better place

I agree with this 100% I stressed so hard when I first started growing (I still for sure do from time to time) I bought things with little to no research on it. All I can say is ask questions and donโ€™t just go throw a ton of money at something unless you truly need it. Just have fun with it, donโ€™t stress too much and enjoy the ride. Growing cannabis is a lot of fun, you got thisย

Ya it's a learn as you go thing but I can tell you something. I have fucked up more things than I can write down lmao. But this is learning. As your on a budget don't cheap out on the light. This is the most important part. Get a nice light like a mars hydro or spider farmer or ISH and they will grow nicely. As for everything else you can get very cheaply. Here are some pointers that will help you stay on track:

1. Always come to Percy's for your help....we got you.ย 

2. Don't over water if your in soil, a plant will recover in hours from underwater but over water can take days or weeks and DRASTICALLY reduce yield or kill them all together.ย 

3. Don't be scared of fucking up....you will. These plants are weeds. We treat them like babies because we love them but they are tough man....don't worry.

4. NEVER use full strength nutes until you've got enough time under your belt to know how the plants are responding to feeding. A lot of the bottled nutes only need maximum half the strength they suggest on the bottle. So use caution.ย 

5. ALWAYS PH YOUR WATER! Different styles of grows need slightly different pH levels. Know what your growing in and do some research, ask us some questions. Someone here has grown what your growing or how your growing I should say so don't be shy....we can help.ย 

These main tips will help you out but it's really trial and error man. I have fucked up some weed plants so bad I thought they were gonna die but they were great smoke in the end. Good luck man! ๐Ÿ™‚

Do better, feel better.

Learn what VPD is and how you can adjust your conditions to suit your plant's needs, you might get lucky and need less equipment off the get-go.

Ensure that you have a place to dry your cannabis without rushing it

Grow slower at first and learn to accept the mistakes and do your best to correct them the next time around.

Don't be afraid to try new things, a thousand questions and no attempts tend to rabbit hole fears.

Share your experiences as they are happening, no one can help if they can't see what's wrong.

Rejoice you've found the greatest place on Earth!

Love is all that matter, with it you can achieve anything.

I agree!

Once you plant that first seed, no matter what happens, a new skill that will be with you forever is started.
