Step 1: Choose a Cannabis Grow Space and Lights
The first step will be to find a good growing space this can be a room, a closet, tent, cabinet or just a corner in your basement. Once you choose this space you just need to take in mind that you will need to tailor your equipment to fit the space. When you grow cannabis plants for the first time, by starting small you will minimize your costs and get acquainted with the growing processes and monitoring. Keep in mind to clean the space clean and sanitized.
Another important matter to take in mind is the lights you will use to grow your marijuana plants indoors. You can choose from HID grow lights, fluorescent grow lights, LED grow lights or induction grow lights.
Step 2: Provide Your Plants with Ventilation
Your plants will need fresh air and carbon dioxide to successfully achieve the process of photosynthesis. Therefore, it is important that you have a steady stream of air that flows through your grow room. The temperatures in the room should remain at a comfortable range for your plants, which is usually around 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit (21-29 degrees Celsius) with lights on and between 50-70 degrees Fahrenheit (10-21 degrees Celsius) with the lights off.
Step 3: Control and Monitor
An important part of the process is controlling and monitoring the growth of your plants. The best way you can do this is to automate your lights and climate control equipment. Especially since you will have your lights on for 16-20 hours per day period during the vegetative growth and 12 hours per day once they are in the bloom.
Besides this control system, it is also handy to have a pH meter or test kit in the space as you will need to monitor your water, nutrient solution or soil. Ideally, cannabis has a pH between 6 and 7 in soil and 5.5 and 6.5 in hydroponic media.
Step 4: Growing your Cannabis Plants
When growing your cannabis plants indoor you can opt to grow them in the old-fashioned way which is in pots of soil or a rockwool slab in a hydroponic tray. Each of the methods you can choose from has its own advantages and disadvantages. But an important thing to take in mind as a grower when choosing between these methods is that each of them looks at a different time period needed for the growth of the yields.
