We suggest basing the number of plants you’ll be growing on the size of the closet you’ll be growing them in, as you definitely don’t want to overload the area. You also want to be sure that you have enough room to accommodate your equipment, including grow lights and ventilation.
When you’re growing weed in a closet, grow medium options are the same as they would be when growing anywhere else. A small-scale hydroponic system is one option, which offers easy to maintain irrigation and provides better control; plus, plants tend to grow faster with hydroponic systems.
How do you turn a closet into a weed “farm”?
Last but certainly not least, you’re going to need to get yourself some seeds of plants. If you opt for seeds, you’ll likely save some money, but it may be more time-consuming and challenging to get them started. Instead, you could opt for plants that have already sprouted, which will be easier to maintain, but it might be harder to find them and may be more costly.
Q:How would a home grower comply with the rule that limits them to three plants in flower?
A: There’s a 1,200-page book that is beyond most other books and pretty much says everything you need to know about marijuana growing: “Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower’s Bible,” by Jorge Cervantes (Van Patten Publishing, 2006). Our guys still keep it on hand, and they’ve been growing for 15 years.
A: When a plant is fully mature, some people cut it off at the base, then cut off the fan leaves and hang it upside down. After it’s dried, they’ll trim off all the outer “sugar” leaves (the single leaves close to the bud).
Q:Isn’t hemp a type of marijuana? Can that be grown in a house?
A: You shouldn’t have any issue with handling the plant, but the scent is very pronounced, so you may smell like marijuana.
