The First Time Grower. Growing weed indoors…. easily


Growing weed indoors is not at all difficult these days.  There are lots of strains which are bred to give great results.  And there are lots of options for grow methods and lights.  If you have never grown weed indoors before you will be faced with a confusing number of options.  In this week’s blog we will aim to focus on a few simple recommendations which will allow you to make a successful first grow indoors.  You will be amazed how easy it is to grow top quality marijuana!

Step 1.  Where to grow?  One of the easiest ways to start is with one of the purpose built indoor grow tents available from proven vendors such as Hydro Lab and Secret Jardin.  These tents are strong and can be assembled in a few minutes, they are light proof and come with all the necessary holes for cables and air extraction.  These tents cost around €100 for a basic model.

Step 2.  Growing in soil or hydro?  Cannabis can grow in a massive number of different ways.  Perhaps the simplest way is in soil.  But it will grow well in coco fibre, clay pebbles, rockwool and any number of different hydroponic systems where there is no soil.  So long as the roots get nutrients and oxygen cannabis will grow.  It is called weed for a good reason !

In this week’s blog we will look only at growing in soil to keep things simple.  Growing in hydroponic systems does give great results but the additional technicalities involving pH, electrical conductivity etc may be a bit confusing for some first-time growers.  We will start by looking just at growing in soil.

Step 3.  Soil quality.  The simplest way to start growing is to buy a prepared specialist soil from companies like BioBizz, Canna or Plagron.  This isn’t the cheapest way of getting started, but it is the simplest as everything is done for you, and you know the soil will give solid results. If you visit their websites you will see that they have soil for seedlings and soil to use when ‘potting up’ plants into their final containers.  They also have additional soil additives which you may want to consider to maximise yields, such as extra nutrients for flowering.  If you buy compost from the local garden centre then add at least 30% perlite in the soil to allow root aeration. If you can, add some worm castings or other light soil enrichers such as bat guano.  There are lots of good books and growing websites which will allow you to get a little bit more information in your own language.  But the easiest way to start is to get a specialist, ready-mixed soil and large plant containers.

If you use large containers, say 15-20 litres with a prepared soil mix you will have a very simple way of growing.  You won’t need to worry about pH or nutrient deficiencies.  The only thing you will need to do is water them lightly a couple of times a week and perhaps add a little liquid feed towards the end of flowering when the soil nutrients are getting depleted.  The most common mistakes made by new growers are over-watering and over-feeding, both of these slow plant growth and limit your end-result.   

Step 4.  The growroom.  Keep the temperature around 25°C.  If it gets too hot (over 30°C) or too cold (under 20°C) you may start seeing slow growth and other issues.  If you are growing in a tent you will need to extract the air from the tent.  Air is removed by a fan which sucks the air through tubes (usually 100mm+ diameter).  The air should be sent through a carbon filter to remove all traces of the characteristic cannabis smell.  Finally the extracted air is vented normally outside or into a well ventilated loft.  Pro growers will use ozone generators to remove the tiniest remaining canna smells.  Growers that don’t take steps to deal with canna smells often wish they had.  If you are growing indoors then you really must use carbon filters.  Cannabis plants need a constant supply of fresh air to stay healthy and grow.

Step 5.  The seeds.  You have 2 choices.  You can grow AutoFem seeds or traditional ‘photoperiod‘ strains.  AutoFem’s take 70 days from sprouting the seed to harvest under a lighting regime of 20 hours on, 4 hours off. 

Traditional strains are grown initially under 18 hours lights on/6 hours lights off.  This is called vegetative growth; the plant grows leaves, roots and branches but no bud. Usually after 4 or 5 weeks the plants is switched to 12 hours lights on/12 hours lights off.  This causes the cannabis plant to go into flowering and produce the buds we all love.  Normally the flowering process takes around 9 weeks.  The finished plant is cut down, the buds trimmed and dried for a few days.  Normally people cure (or mature) the buds in glass jars for a month or two to get the best flavours and a great high.

Cannabis plants can be male or female, but only the female plant has the buds that you want.  For that reason you are better off with feminized seed which will give rise to 95%+ female plants.  Dutch Passion were the first to offer feminized seed back in the 1990’s and today feminized seed accounts for 97% of our seed sales.  If you are new to growing, we would recommend a robust, forgiving variety such as feminized Skunk #11 for your first attempt.  Skunk #11 gives great yields, a great smoke and is easy to grow.  At €27 for 5 seeds it is the most affordable of our most highly-rated strains.  This was our first strain to sell over 1 million seeds for good reasons.

Step 6.  The light.  Most indoor growers use HPS lights.  These are a low cost and effective way of growing.  LED lights have been improving dramatically in the last 2 years, but at around €1000 for a 300W system they are still a little too expensive for many people.  But the results we have seen with them show that technically they are now really delivering excellent performance.  If you buy a grow tent you will normally get a manufacturers recommendation about the size of lamp and size of extraction fan.  The most common HPS lamps are 250W, 400W and 600W.  The more power they have, the more light (and heat) they produce.

And that is it.  There are countless ways to grow cannabis, but growing in premixed soil, in a purpose built indoor tent with an HPS light is one of the easiest ways to start.  More advanced growers will tell you that hydroponic systems such as NFT and especially DWC (deep water culture) gives even better results than soil.  If you are growing for the first time this year we wish you success !

Yes you can buy a 300W LED with 3 watt chips for around 250 euro, but there ar so many variables one must take into account. Lens angle, wave lengths, dimmable, warranty, chip maker. A top of the line LED will easily produce 25% more product. So bare minimum is 25% less production over a 5 year period worth buying direct from China worth it? And what if you have a problem, how long is going to take to ship it to China, have it repaired and returned. I am not going to plug the LED I bought here. I will say I am glad I bought a proven LED and didn't try and cut corners. My LED ROCKS!

hi Bigbudsrob. Most home growers tend to give traditional varieties around 3-4 weeks vegetive growth under 18 (or 24) hours of daily light. Then they switch the lighting to 12 hours of daily light for around 9 weeks to allow the plants to finish flowering AutoFem plants spend their entire 10 week life under a system of 20 hours of daily light

If anyone is looking for a more energy efficient alternative to lighting options a full or natural spectrum (natural better then just full but harder to find) is minimum 100w equivalent CFL bulbs. you can get higher wattage equivalents but just depends on size of room/tent/box whichever you are growing in. these bulbs run off much less power and produce very great results.

Few time grower here and here is what I have learned, energy efficient CFL lights work well just use daylight bulbs for veg cos the blue and soft white for flower as they have a more red tint. Its okay to mix them and they seem to like them mixed. The more the better. Your light bill only goes up a few dollars. Soil is the most important make sure you use a good soil. Never use miracle grow. The bigger the flowerpot the bigger the plant the more buds you get. The best nutrients I have found is nectar of the gods. Its AMAZING! And half the price of some of the commercial brands like fox farm. If you follow the feeeding chart its simple and they will send you one when you order or you can get online. When its time to switch to 12/12 for budding make sure your 12 hours of dark is very DARK! Or it will switch back to veg. Always use superthrive no matter what nutes. Take your time and make sure its ready to harvest, if you harvest too early you lose some thc and its not as good. Take it slow and enjoy. Every grow makes it easier. Its called a weed for a reason. Its not hard good luck!

Hey I'm a first time dwc grower and I've been learning as I'm going (made my share of mistakes) but here's the question that might make or break my whole grow. I have a over grown plant that's been in bloom for about 4 weeks and the top bud is about a foot from the 400watt hps and the top of the tent. I had to turn the ballast down to 50% power to keep from burning the top bud and many more if it kept growing at the rate it was, it has seem to work so far but how much is it affecting the budding process and also according to my nutrient schedule I still have 5 more week before harvest, oh by the way, I have no idea what kind of strain it is. It's my first dummy plant, but it grew really nice and has nice buds.id hate to screw it up now, will 50% ballast be ok? I know now that I have to start my bloom way earlier, I waited way too long for my 7 ft tent,one of my many lessons lol Thanks

Hey Bob 21. There are two alternatives to expensive HID lights. I combine one 250 watt convertible HID with two fluorescent grow systems. I grew recently with this system and was never monitored by the local electrical service. The other option is LED lights; these really are the answer to expensive hot HIDs. Once I grew two plants in the bathroom of my former rv using two ordinary light bulbs tinted blue, 60 watts each, and the smoke was great, but very low yield. I also think it's a good idea to take long breaks and just not grow. Also, it's a good idea to grow a small indoor garden in the late spring or early summer, since your extra electrical use will coincide with the annual increase in electricity usage from air conditioning throughout the land, so a little bit more than usual is not enough to notice. If you grow in the winter be careful, because while everyone else's electric bill goes down, your's remains high, attracting attention. Once I knew I was being monitored by the local electic company, so I disassembled my whole grow system, sold 24 mature plants, and put my lights in boxes wrapped with garbage bags. One day I come home and one of those boxes was turned upside down and someone had torn a hand sized hole in it to see what was in the bag. They left it like that and whoever came into my place found no trace of THC or cannabis anywhere. I outfoxed them by keeping my radar up.

Hello, I'm a bit confused as if I need a tent and a smell filter. The reason is this: I live in a Czech Republic apartment that has a storage room and this storage room has 2 windows, it even allows a lot of natural light but the plants wouldnt be visible and the only close neighbors are the flat upstairs but the rooms are tall about 3.5 meters. However I do have people coming over to my flat for meditation in the next room and they are not intimate friends. Also this storage room is just a door but not hermetically sealed or anything like that. Do I need a tent and filter or I can just open the window? Would it stink my room with marijuana smell? I read somewhere that the filter and the fan use like 100watt, that's a lot, but are they constantly working on that speed?

Hey my name is Jess, and I'm here to ask a few questions about growing. First I'd like to ask is (since this is my first) does a female naturally get that bushy full of bud or do I have to change something that I'm doing? Another question I can't seem to find the answer to is, how stinky does one single female get? Should I invest in a carbon filter or is it useless for one plant? (But I do in fact plan on planting maybe another one after this harvest) my plant started stinking at 1-2 months, or at least had some scent of weed in it.

On 18 -11-2015 at 10:39 u Eddy - Dutch Passion wrote:
Jess, (18/11/2015). Carbon filters are regarded as mandatory by indoor growers, any hydro store can advise more. Plants (traditional photoperiod) will grow the buds when light hours are reduced to 12/12. Auto varieties will start to flower at 3-4 weeks old irrespective of light cycle.

Does putting cannabis in the dark increase or save the terpenes and terpenoids ?

On 10 -01-2017 at 12:08 u Eddy wrote:
McRuderalis, 9th Jan 2017. Keeping cannabis in the dark can allow terpenes to increases in the cooler darkness, which is less conducive to plant transpiration. However, without lights the plant energy source is switched off and this prevents photosynthesis. So light has a dual effect
