Whether you want to grow indoors, or outdoors, there are simple tips you can follow to grow marijuana cheap. How? Keep reading for our ultimate guide to growing weed cheap 101.

Choose a cost-effective medium

Of course, it’s a no-brainer that harnessing the natural power of the sun and outdoor environments is far cheaper than indoor set-ups. But, when growing weed outdoors you don’t always have the luxury of year-round or perpetual harvests. Plus, you have far less control over the environment to nurture the highest quality growth, like you would indoors. Regardless, for growers seeking to grow weed cheap – cultivating outdoors can be the way to go. Just keep these tips in mind to maximize success and cost-saving measures.

But keep in mind – one area we can’t advise on cutting costs is ventilation or environmental controls. Keeping optimal conditions when it comes to humidity and temperature is key when it comes to producing quality weed. Especially without molds, pests, or issues. So if you choose to invest in any high-cost items for your grow room or space, do consider a humidifier, dehumidifier, air exhaust system, etc.

Always buy from a trusted seed retailer

With this system, cool air will enter through the bottom of the tent, and warm air will be scrubbed as it leaves the top of the tent. The 6” clip-on fan should be placed just above canopy level on the back-left pole to help circulate air evenly as the plants mature.

The micro cannabis grow setup: $500

With the 315w CMH (ceramic metal halide) lights, enough heat is generated to recommend this build for an open space to allow for the best possible air circulation through the tent. The included 3100k bulb allows you to use the tent for both vegetative and flowering cycles.
