All I meant by that was for new growers not to try and get too cute with their first grow @Moma
Everyone wants to have large yeilds, from beautiful plants, that produce great smoke. I think that the more simple you keep your first couple of grows, the more successful they will be. You can learn a lot from Internet research, but no amount of research will take the place of completing a hands on grow.
So rather than trying to implement the latest and greatest techniques, keep your first grow simple. Don’t plan on vegging long and creating a monster plant. Don’t implement every method of training you read about. Don’t feed it $300 worth of nutes and supplements. And definitely keep an open mind!
The people here are great, and will try to answer all questions as well as help you through an problems you run into. If you haven’t already, start a grow journal. I’m sure several members will drop by.
