Yet I see many growers trying to construct their own special grow box. If you’re doing it because it’s fun and you love building things, or need a custom setup, that’s great. But I see a lot of growers make their own grow box in an attempt to save money.
A 150W HPS grow light (pictured here) uses the same amount of electricity as my 40″ TV and doesn’t produce a whole lot of heat. Keep it 10″ away from your plants and let them grow. It easily yields 3 ounces even on a questionable first grow.
To make things tougher, a seedling does not always produce similar buds (or grow like) the mother plant it came from.
7.) More nutrients does not equal more buds
I know it seems old-fashioned, but I believe many new growers would be happy with a small MH/HPS grow light when first starting growing cannabis indoors. These HID (High Intensity Discharge) grow lights have a reputation for being hot and needing lots of electricity, but most people don’t realize they come in all sizes, even as small as a 150W.
Once you grow in a tent, it’s hard to go back to anything else.
3.) Be aware of timelines
I know a lot of these problems from first-hand experience because I didn’t vent my first few grows
