The era of ‘love thy neighbor’ and ‘neighborhood watch’ is sadly over in many towns and cities. These days, people tend to watch you rather than watching out for you. As a result, you have to be careful about who and what comes into your house or grow area. This is especially the case if they are in the same location.
The idea of having a cannabis garden where you grow the plant sounds extremely alluring and exciting. If you have done your research, you’ll know that growing weed isn’t an easy process. It requires specialist knowledge and a lot of patience. You should also know that secrecy is of the utmost importance.
Rule #4 – Thou Shalt Be Wary of Nosy Neighbors
Growing marijuana isn’t a dangerous pastime when you follow basic safety rules. However, it becomes a problem for idiots. Don’t be an idiot! There are plenty of examples where foolish growers have destroyed their crop, and their home, in an electrical fire. The most obvious tip here is to purchase high-quality equipment because cheap electrics are a recipe for disaster.
Even if you live in a state where it is legal to grow marijuana, it is always best not to attract attention.
Rule #1 – Thou Shall STFU!
Ensure all water and other liquids are at a level below waist-height and that all electrical equipment is above waist-height. Clean up any spilled liquids immediately and invest in a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. A GFCI interrupts the power when it senses a problem with your electrical flow.
I actually had some now-now, before writing this. Hi!
Whether you’re growing indoors or outdoors, light is very important. Make sure your children are getting eight hours of sunlight a day. Don’t worry about getting fancy lights or anything like that – then you’re getting too deep for a beginner.
Ready? Here we go.
Anyone who has grown anything in their life will know that it’s a pretty basic exercise. The three components are water, light, and soil. The more of those three things, the better. Quality is important, too. Go to the nursery and chat to one of the gardening pros. Ask for a quality, finer soil, best for germination and seedlings. Tell them what it’s for – don’t be shy.
