Lighting

  • The Sun: You need to make sure that your plants are getting at least 8+ hour of direct sunlight each day for the best results.
  • Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs): Beginners often start small indoor grows with CFL bulbs, since they’re cheap and easy to get a hold of
  • Other Fluorescent Lighting (T5 / T8): These lights are traditionally made for plants that need lower light intensity than cannabis. If you do get other fluorescent lighting, I recommend sticking with a High-Output T5 lights.
  • LED grow lights: LEDs are more powerful than CFLs and other fluorescent lighting, but they are also much more expensive.
  • Metal Halide (MH): Also known as “HID” lights, MH/HPS grow lights are the “golden standard” for growing cannabis indoors.
  • High Pressure Sodium (HPS):  Smaller MH/HPS grow lights are actually really well suited to a small grow and don’t produce nearly as much heat as their bigger cousins.

Growing Medium

  • Soil – grow in organic composted super soil for the easiest growing experience, or start with the popular Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil mix (FFOF already contains enough nutrients to last the first month of your young plant’s life)
  • Soilless Mix – anything besides soil including coco coir, perlite, vermiculite, etc (all soilless mixes are technically considered hydroponic growing since there’s no soil)
  • Lots of bubbles make cannabis roots happy in hydroponicsDirectly in Water / Hydroponics – Get some of the fastest growth and biggest yields possible, especially when combined with HID grow lights – these days I personally grow using a top-fed DWC system
  • Less Common Types of Hydro – Some people grow with plant roots suspended in misted air (aeroponics) or in a tank with fish (aquaponics), but these are relative less common for cannabis growers.

Plant Nutrients

  • Soil growers – unless you’ve growing with composted super soil, you will need to get cannabis nutrients made for soil to make sure your plants produce at their best. Even if you started with an amended soil like FFOF, you will still need to start adding nutrients once you reach the flowering/budding stage as cannabis plants are heavy feeders and your plants will have already used up most of the nutrients in the soil by the time budding begins.
  • Soilless & Hydroponic growers – If you are growing in any medium besides soil, like a soilless mix or directly in water, you will want to get cannabis nutrients specifically made for hydroponics. Some nutrients are even more specific, like Canna Coco is formulated to work best growing weed in Coco Coir. For hydronic grows, I highly recommend the General Hydroponics Nutrient Trio – here’s the cannabis-friendly GH trio nutrient schedule I use with my cannabis plants.
