What You’ll Need:
Because your costs will be minimal, don’t skimp on quality soil. Do your research and talk to grow supply stores in your region to find a product that will help keep your plants growing strong. Alternatively, you can “build” low-cost soil by adding amendments, which can save you money while letting you customize a blend for your garden specifically.
Selecting Quality Cannabis Genetics
Finally, if your climate isn’t ideal for cannabis, you can still successfully grow outdoors. Building a simple hoop house allows you to increase the temperature, reduce the climate impacts, control the length of the season, and still produce quality buds for a low cost. Hoop houses are the cheapest form of greenhouses, and they’re generally built with 2x4s, PVC, and plastic tarp, allowing you to customize the shape and size to fit your needs. Just be attentive to the temperature in your hoop house by “burping” (i.e. opening up the sides) it as needed and by installing high-velocity fans to keep fresh air moving through the enclosed space.
A Low-Cost Indoor Cannabis Garden
You’ll also need to provide an adequate water supply to keep your plants happy. The cheapest way to water your plants is by hose, while a more expensive method involves installing a drip system.
A sunny window with 4 hours of direct sun will grow a couple baggies . With full sun all day, you will send your yields through the roof. But having too much pot has never been a problem. If you live in a house that gets very little direct sunlight, you can always supplement with a natural spectrum COB LED grow light . These lights are affordable to buy, have low energy costs, and emit a natural spectrum of light that can proudly sit over your cannabis plant in the corner of your living room.
But let’s talk about the most important elements – light and soil, and how nutrients can further enhance your soil.
For whatever reason, the general opinion is that growing pot is expensive and complicated. We are here to change that notion. Th e truth is, it’s called weed for a reason and we want every gardener to grow it as though it were another garden variety. It is an amazing plant to share space with. It may have even been humanity’s first companion plant. Not many plants grow as vigorously, express such a variety of smells, display so many different shades of the rainbow, or heal the body while calming the brain.
The Importance of Grow Lights for Cannabis Cultivation
The more light you have the bigger your yield is going to be. Think of it as the engine, the bigger it is the faster you can go. While lighting for cannabis is a highly debated subject, our team at a Pot for Pot believes that the best form of light for your plants is the sun. First and foremost, it is a giant fireball in the sky that is free! Not to mention it is a true full spectrum light source that the plant evolved to grow under.
The better the soil and the more light you have, the better your plants will grow. We tailored a Pot for Pot to include everything you need to go from seed to harvesting your own organic flowers, at a price that won’t leave you stressing over the thing that’s supposed to relax you. To make it easy, we blend over 18 different ingredients into our Superb Soil so that it provides all the nutrients needed to go from a seed or clone into a beautiful budding plant.
What You Need to Grow Weed Indoors and On a Budget
Those are the bare bones of growing weed cheap! There are several other accessories you can use to help produce the best yield possible and aid with clean-up, including a watering can, fabric grow pot, saucer, and natural pest repellent. This can be an expensive toolkit to put together on your own. To save money, you can check out our Complete Grow Kits at a Pot for Pot. They have everything you need to grow and you won’t have to take care of shipping costs from multiple websites.
Thanks to Plant Success Organics , we are also able to include their Great White Mycorrhizae and Mycos Chum Nutrients. Their premium beneficial bacteria & trichoderma work in symbiosis with your plant’s roots to break the soil down and maximize your plant’s nutrient uptake. Over 10 years, I have grown in everything, and at the end of the day, nothing beats the smell and taste of naturally soil grown cannabis.
