Simple Difficulties of Growing Cannabis Indoor
Growing cannabis indoors is not as easy as one thinks. Sure it’s just a weed, and all you need to do is add water. But you must make sure 50 other concerns get met along with a proper plan.
After 26 years of indoor growing and training more than 12,396 students online, I’ve figured out the most crucial part of growing cannabis indoors is the planning process.
Before meeting so many of my students, many bought equipment before understanding or learning anything about growing cannabis indoor. They researched on youtube, Facebook, or any other social site and figured you just need a light, seeds, and a tent, and bam, you have weed.
I call this the ready, fire aim approach when the poop hits the fan and youre let either quitting or spending more money to make up for the lost product.
This article will cover a few tips you should do before even buying gear or even studying. Seneca’s old saying reads, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
This also is true when it comes to growing indoor. People have told me I was so lucky for what I do, and I find that disrespectful due to all of the preparation before seeing success.
So before you bust a move and buy gear from your favorite youtube influencer, who, for the most part, needs you to buy their affiliate products and could care less if you fail or succeed, you should step back and put a plan together.
This is what you want to ask yourself:
- What are the laws in my country or state? This is a great place to start so you understand your plant count and how far you can take your craft or new business. Websites like https://norml.org/laws/ will give you an entire rundown of states in the U.S. that prohibit cannabis growing and the conditions that allow you to grow along with how much you can grow.
- Why do you want to grow? This question is essential because you can always go back to the why when times get rough and build your confidence to get back up and keep going. If your why is weak, let say make money, you will be working off urgency, and when times get rough, you will abandon the ship to find more money, and your investment went down the drain. So be sure to answer why you want to grow. Save more money, medical purposes, etc.
How much do you need to accomplish the goal you have set? Do you want to grow for personal use and save money? If so, you need to know how much you want to see come from your garden. Again, checking with your local laws, you may be permitted to possess 4 ounces or flower four plants. Knowing how much you want to flower will help determine what gear you will need to accomplish the mission and how much you will need to invest in making it happen.
Now, many other factors go into the next step, but before you go on any longer, I would map out and answer these questions even if you have the equipment. I bet you will make many changes after writing out your three questions.
To give you a real-life example, my good friend El spend 60k on equipment after speaking with the local grow shop. Be careful! By the way, do not go into your local grow shop without a plan, you will get sold on everything they own and will act like you’ll be a pro, and it’s plug and play.
So El spent 60k, and after we meet and he starts my classes, his entire setup did not fit what he was trying to do and had to spend another 25k to get it one the correct way, leaving my buddy with so much gear sitting around at which he had to sell so it would all make sense.
Now, El is a massive success in his state and almost lost everything he invested 2x before meeting me.
Don’t make the same mistake. If you plan to get started, make sure to answer the three questions to the fullest and then reach out to me and our network to take on your mission.
