Growing cannabis doesn’t need to be complicated.
When I first started growing weed (over 7 years ago now) I didn’t follow any guides.
I borrowed a used HPD grow light from one of my friends, bought some seeds, a fabric pot, and started growing my first plant in the spare room of my tiny flat.
I’d heard that weed was a tough plant and would grow in almost any environment.
That’s why it’s called “weed” right?
How did it go? well, OK actually…
I followed the instructions on the seed pack, my plant grew, flowered and I harvested it.
I was pretty happy with myself.
However, it wasn’t until I showed my friend my harvest that I realized just how many mistakes I made.
My harvest was pathetic. Skinny buds with lots of air holes. And barely any visible crystals at all.
Here are just a few of the mistakes that led to my hay like buds:
- My plant didn’t get enough light (I hung my light too high)
- I’d drowned my plant by overwatering it
- I harvested way too early
- I didn’t use any nutrients at all
- I didn’t use a grow tent
Why Cannabis Grow Guides Are Important
Grow guides are the difference between a poor yield and a great yield.
When you start growing cannabis, you will quickly realise that seemingly small things can greatly affect your final yield.
In my case, I made lots of small mistakes, and it led to a really poor yield. If I had followed a good marijuana grow guide, and learned more about each step, I could have easily doubled my yield. My buds would have been a lot stronger too, covered in nice glistening crystals.
If you’re serious about growing cannabis and want to get the best return on your investment, find a good grow guide and follow it closely.
Don’t make the same mistakes I did 🙂
Why Use Our Guides?
One of the things I found most frustrating about the guides I read, was that they were full of complicated jargon and acronyms.
I’d be told to track PPM, NPK, pH, and to stick to an 18/6 cycle, without the author telling me what the fuck these things actually were.
I’m the kind of person that needs to read IKEA instructions 6 times before I understand how to build a simple coffee stand, so I need to use grow guides that walk me step by step through the process in a clear and easy-to-understand way.
Our grow guides are aimed for people like me, and are therefore perfect for people who are just starting out growing, and are feeling a bit overwhelmed by the overly technical language used in the cannabis community.
How To Use Our Grow Guides
On this page, you’ll find lots of guides that answer the most common questions people have when they start growing weed.
These guides will show you where to buy seeds, how to germinate (sprout) your seeds, which soil to use, when to harvest, simple steps to increase yield and potency, and much much more.
If you’re just starting out, then I would recommend reading my how to grow weed indoors guide, which explains all the steps you need to take to achieve a good first yield.
