Hi guys I’m living in a country where cannabis is not legal and that’s why we get horrible quality stuff here. So that’s why I have decided to grow on a budget and in secret. I’ve been watching alot of YouTube videos and learning but I still have many doubts. I’d like to post about the way I’ve decided to grow and just need an approval from you guys if it’ll work.
Alright so as I said I’m on a budget so I thought of growing in a cardboard box which is 60cm long and 30cm wide. I’ll cover the whole box with foil to act as reflectors. I’ll grow in a 1gallon pot and add soil in it. For ventilation I’ll keep the box a little open and run a fan through it. (I don’t have an exhaust fan just the normal blowing fan). I thought of using a 20W led bulb. And I’m planning on growing an autoflower strain (any suggestions would be great). The humidity where I live is very high at 90% and to reduce it I’m planning on using a moisture absorber box (will this work to control the humidity?). The weather is 78C which I assume will be controlled by the light.
So this how I’ve been thinking of doing it. Do you think it will work ? Please correct me if I’ve done any mistake. And I have a few more questions I’d like to ask below.
1.) How much distance do I keep between the plant and the light (bulb)?
2.) Can somebody please tell me about the nutrients I should be using and how to use it with soil ? Or should I even be using any?
3.) I’m planning on ordering only 1 seed. Do you think it’ll sprout or should I go with 3 seeds to be safe?
4.) I’ve thought about ordering from greenparotseeds, dinafem, seedsupreme or weedseedshop. Which one these sites are most reliable? Any other suggestions would be great as well.
5.) Which strain should I grow for a beginner? I’d prefer one with alot of yield and an amazing high.
6.) Can somebody explain to me about the pH levels in water and soil and what they should be for best growth and how do I control the pH levels?
7.) Is one plant going to smell alot in my room because I can’t afford a carbon filter. Any suggestions on how to mask the smell would be great.
8.) How many times a day do I water the plants?
9.) When do I start the flush?
So this is it. Do y’all think it’s going to work? Any reply would really be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
