If you follow the instructions, you can have your first couple ounces of delicious home-grown Marijuana 4 months from today.
You may be worried that this is complicated …. but let me take this fear away from you.
Cannabis is an ‘easy’ plant. Even if you make a few mistakes, you’ll still get a harvest.
On this website, you will find I made a series of 5 short videos. If you watch them and follow the instructions, you’ll end up with a grow tent.
You may wonder if a Cannabis Grow will be smelly in your House
I live in a small apartment, in the middle of the city.
I have neighbours all around me. Above, underneath, left and right.
But I can still grow weed without anyone smelling anything.
I am using carbon air filters to scrub the air clean and reduce the smell.
Is a Cannabis Grow Box loud?
I have a workshop where I built electronics.
And one of my tools is a ‘sound-meter’. It measures sound volume.
When I measured how loud a grow tent is, I found that its about the same as a running fridge.
By speed controlling my fan, I can keep it as quiet as possible
Does a Marijuana Grow Box cost a lot of Electricity?
When I got started home growing, this hobby about tripled my electricity bill.
I had to tell my landlord a crazy story … (I told him that I bought a computer server that eats all the electricity).
The problem was caused by the large lamp I was using.
But today, we are using LED Grow Lights.
They use much less electricity.
You need $30 – $60 monthly for electricity.
You may be worried that a Grow tent is very expensive.
When I build my first grow tent, it took about 3.5 months to get my first harvest.
That first harvest was worth more than I had spent building the grow tent.
Getting a grow tent is not really a cost, it is an investment.
You may be worried that you don’t have enough space
I live in a small 2 bedromm apartment.
So I’m using a small grow tent.
They come in all sizes.
You may be worried about water damage to your house
One day I read about a Cannabis grow who got busted.
He used a ‘hydroponic’ system … meaning lots of water. And it leaked into his house … the neighbours complained and … that was it.
But we are not using that much water. It is not enough to remotely cause any damage to your house.
You may be worried about your gardening skills.
I did many terrible mistakes on my Cannabis Plant.
Wrong light, wrong nutrients … the lot.
But eventually, I still got about 15grams of weed.
And from then on I got better and better.
I wrote a guide on how to do the first grow and succeed.
It’s also on this website and it will help you.
You may be worried about the fire danger
My first real job was to be an apprentice to become an electrician.
And one thing I learned is that only sloppy work creates a fire hazard.
A well planend setup with good components will be safe.
You may be worried that it’s too warm or too cold to grow Cannabis where you live.
Cannabis grows in the cold mountains of the Himalaya to the warm tropical forrest of Jamaica.
It can adapt to most temperatures.
If you live in a very hot spot or very cold spot, you may need to do some extra ‘tricks’ that I will show you on this websites.
You may be worried about what your friend/neighbors/family thinks about you growing weed.
I have a grow tent running in my bedroom…hidden in the wardrobe.
When I have visitors, they rarely check my wardrobe.
I’m also using air filters to remove the smell.
My name is Volker. I made this website to show how easy it is to grow your own Cannabis.
I did my first Indoor Cannabis Grow in 2003.
Even though it was highly illegal in Germany. Luckily I never got caught. And now I live in an area where this all legal.
I feel for every one who is not allowed to grow this plant. But the world is changing to the better in many areas.
Before I grew my own Weed, I was always waiting for the dealer. He was a nice person, but so unreliable that it at times made me angry.
I remember one time I paid for 15 grams of hash. But when I’d put it on the scale it was only 13g.
Until one day when I walked through a news agency, looking at the magazines.
There was one magazine cover with photos of happy people, some of them had long beards.
They were posing with their (illegal) Cannabis plants.
These guys were growing their own weed in their backyards.
That was really exciting ….
…. I also wanted to grow my own weed.
Here are some of my first plants ever … in dad’s garden:
We lived in Germany, and sometimes there was not enough sun for Cannabis (it needs lots).
I was also constantly worried about someone calling the police on my plants.
So I made the plan to grow indoors.
I built my first grow box and started my first ever indoor grow.
Even though I was a newbie and my first indoor plants turned kinda yellow, I still harvested my own delicious marijuana.
From then on, I did not have to buy green anymore. Now I can supply others with Weed.
Depending on where you live, growing Cannabis may be legal or not. But the techniques used to grow it are the same.
