  • Should have a PSA tag, Subby
  • God damn that sounds complicated. $1000 in equipment and special feeding schedules.  And CO2? What the fark man?
  • That article made me wish I still liked to smoke pot. Enjoyed the hell out of it when I was young, then just lost interest one day.
  • The Denver Post wants everyone to think it's hard to grow their own weed.
  • Ambivalence: God damn that sounds complicated. $1000 in equipment and special feeding schedules.  And CO2? What the fark man?


    You can do almost as good with a closet, a couple of buckets, and a few lights. It's actually quite easy unless you demand nothing but the best two-toke-smoke. Even growing from seed isn't that difficult. But now there is an entire industry built around growing weed so of course they are going to want you to buy their products. It's just another business.
  • oh god i didn't think about the stoner equivalent of a foodie criticizing and babbling endlessly about the best way to grow pot.  that's going to be obnoxious... well it already is/was but now it's going to be much more often.
  • I'm farking moving to CO ASAP.

    No, you can't.  Those lights are going to make that closet too hot for the plants and the lights have to be on almost 24 hours a day at first (24 the first week, 23 the next, 22 the following) until you are down to about 14 hours of light a day at which time vegetative growing ends and blooming begins.  The CO2 helps enormously during the budding.  Also, just one male plant (and they are very easy to spot) will seed the whole group and lessen their potency.
    Take it from me--you need cooling, some kind of odor removal as growing weed has a distinctive smell and good fertilizer.  A lot of work.

    Meh, that's only if you're worried about getting the absolute most out of it. Think of it like having a pet fish. You can keep a goldfish in a bowl by itself and feed it once a day, it'll be there until you're sick of it. A $1000 extoic saltwater fish is going to need all kinds of shiat just to keep it alive. Somewhere in between you get a freshwater community that only needs a regular cleaning, some PH balance for the hard water, and food once a night.

    Please, tell us more.
  • I've got a buddy moving out there this summer to start growing/selling.  Seems to think he can do really well with his knowledge.
  • LewDux: PSA


    damn, that took me back.

    Jesus you do not need high power lighting for growing. We used to do it all the time in college. Like i said if you want the most potent weed then yes you need an actual grow room. But for regular smoke that will work fine for most people you do not.
  • A friend with weed is a friend indeed.

    /damn it would be good to get on the ground floor of a legal grow operation
  • Anyone else listen to "Free Weed from Danny Danko" podcast from High Times Magazine?  http://www.hightimes.com/freeweed

    Agreed.

    I'm from BC.

    If people think food snobs, wine snobs, beer snobs and the like are bad they just haven't met a bud snob yet.

    The problem now is that budding (pardon the pun) entrepreneurs can't get a loan to start a business growing because no bank is going to lend money to someone for an operation the Feds deem illegal.
  • You can just plant in your yard - it requires less care than growing tomatoes.

    Of course someone might sneak in and steal it which becomes much less of a problem if everybody in the suburbs have it growing in their yards.

    Its easy to grow but pretty complicated to grow well. I know some people that drop 5-10k on setups every time they move. Don't understand how renters do it, but hey, its a livin'. I guess.
  • nburghmatt: LewDux: PSA

    damn, that took me back.


    Me and all. TY for link.

    /Peace to Pete Rock.
  • Sounds like the people in CO are doing better with their legalization than us in WA. I'm still reading of pot and paraphernalia arrests in the local paper.

    Modern grow LCD lights are cool and energy efficient. You dont need CO2 unless you are maximizing the space. If its just a couple plants for personal then you will never see the gains from the CO2. The lights dont need to be on 24 hours at the start and you dont need to gradually reduce the hours. You can have the lights on 18 hours a day and then when you cut the hours down to force flower you want 12 hours of light - not 14.

    The point about odor is well taken and you do want a  little fan to keep air moving. Your biggest worries are powdery mildew, spider mites, and your neighbor's brother who figured out you have pot that he wants.
