How To Grow Weed Indoors For Legal Medical Marijuana Patients

This Article is About Legal Medical Marijuana:

If you want to know how to grow weed indoors for legal marijuana medicine then you must know that light is the most crucial factor next to selecting your strain that you have to consider. There are two main approaches to light your plants inside -Natural light and man made light. Both ways possess advantages and disadvantages.

First thing you should know about how to grow weed indors is that artificial lights produce greater flowers (more bud) as compared with natural window light. Therefore you get more THC with electric lights than you might with natural sunlight inside. Even in places that have a lot of sunshine for 6 months in a year you are still going to find it hard to get big buds indoors underneath that kind of light. Some people have cultivated plants under an attic window that they open through the dry days. This will grow your bud but nearly not as much as you could get using an man-made light system. The other side of the coin is always that natural light is no cost, electricity cost money plus grow lights can be expensive to buy.

When using a window grow try to place your plant around a window that gets the most sunlight. Sun comes in the east and leaves in the west. It travels more north or south dependent upon which side of the earth you are on. Give thought to it for awhile. Always remember that you have the seasons to take into account. If you plan on using a window grow try to be able to establish when you need your plant to receive almost all of its light. You want your plant to be getting most light during budding. If July will be the best month for sunlight then you should definitely consider planting the seedling back in July or May or even late March. Coordinate this considering the flowering times based on the breed and it will be possible to foresee your pick time.

Also remember my fellow growers, can neighbors look up and see your plant when they are sitting near the window? Also remember that in case you have a Sativa plant chances are they'll get big. Take all these factors into consideration if you are growing your plants with natural sunlight indoors. Not the best but still a workable way if you are trying to figure out how to grow weed indoors.

In case this has helped you know how to grow weed indoors then you will need a room or place that you would like to use such as the attic, closet, basement, bathroom or wherever. These locations nearly constantly need artificial light. You can even decide to build the cabinet yourself. There are numerous ways to set-up a strong indoor grow room, grow boxes, cabinets, the AeroGarden (check out my thoughts on the AeroGarden) which can grow you excellent medical buds or any other set up. We will go over that in an upcoming article in the How to Grow Weed Indoors for Legal Medical Marijuana Medicine Series.
