I'm ready to grow Cannabis. How do I begin?
First things first. In order to grow your own cannabis, you'll need a source for either Clones or Seeds. The choice is yours but unless you know a person who will give you a clone straight from their own garden, I recommend growing from seed. Read about Cannabis Clones and Seeds to understand why seeds are better than clones and see my suggestions for buying seeds. Afterwards, go on over to the How to Make Your Own Organic Soil page so I can get you set up for growing organically without the need for expensive and confusing nutrients.
My seeds or clones have arrived and my organic soil is ready. What now?
You'll need to plant your cannabis seed or transplant your clone into the soil. Check out the How to Plant a Cannabis Seed page for a step-by-step guide. It's very simple but there's a couple key points you'll need to remember.
My Cannabis seeds have sprouted and my plants are going bananas in that organic soil. What next?
Head on over to the Cannabis Vegetative Growth section. You'll be on cruise control for awhile, but you'll still need to regularly inspect and spray your plants for bugs per the Cannabis Pest Control section, and soon you'll need to verify the sex of your marijuana plants to make sure they're girls.
My Cannabis has been growing for a couple months and now they have little hairs coming out of the tops. Help!
Congratulations, sir or ma'am, you are seeing the preflowers of your cannabis plant! Now the fun begins as your cannabis changes gears from making leaves to making buds. Go to the Cannabis Flowering section for directions. You'll really need to be on the lookout for bugs now, so read up on Cannabis Pest Control if you haven't already.
I think my Cannabis plants are ready to harvest. How do I harvest cannabis?
Take a breath and pat yourself on the back for all your hard work. Now read my Harvesting Cannabis section so I can show you what you need to do to transform your cannabis plants into dried and cured cannabis that's ready for smoking. Organic cannabis, grown by your own hand...there's nothing like it in the world. Believe me when I tell you that you're going to be very popular at parties.
My Cannabis is dried and cured. Now what?
Smoke that legal marijuana, or vape it in the Silver Surfer like I do. Laugh with your wifey, play with the dog, put on some music and enjoy life. That's why we're here, right?
Growing my own Cannabis has been so much fun. I don't want to leave.
Isn't it though? You can now do something that other people can't: Grow Your Own Legal Backyard Cannabis. And with more experience you'll just get better and better at it. Send me some photos or drop me a message, I'd love to hear about your success!
