Learn How To Grow Weed

Growing Weed Indoors for Beginners

Growing hydro medical marijuana is the best way to grow marijuana plants indoors for medicine. Freshest, largest harvests are grown in hydroponics or soil indoors or outdoors. Whether cultivated indoors or out, marijuana has the same requirements for growth. Plants need light, air, water, nutrients, a growing medium and heat to manufacture food and grow. If you are missing any of these you will not succeed. Indoors, you need to make sure you are using the proper lights in order to replicate what the sun does outdoors; air must be of the proper mix of humidity, warmth, carbon dioxide; water must be abundant but not excessive, and the growing medium must contain the proper levels of nutrients. Marijuana is typically grown as an annual plant, completing its lifecycle in 1 year. If you plant a seed outdoors, it will grow weed through the summer and flower in the fall.
