Basic Kits to Use in Growing Marijuana Indoors

9bAside from the fact that it is easier to conceal marijuana plants inside, knowing how to grow weed offers several advantages because you can control the environmental conditions so weed plants can grow in an ideal environmental that is away from the stress and pressures brought by the weather outside. The use of soil as grow medium is the most traditional way of cultivating marijuana plants but researchers have found that weed plants are taking in their nutrients as inorganic ions which means that the plants can only fully absorb the nutrients dissolved in water.

Several kits are not necessary for your how to grow weed adventure. However there are things that you should not forget in your list like grow lights, etc. The lamp used is considered as one of the most important aspects for cultivating pot plants that grow fast and produce quality and potent buds.

If you want to make sure that you have all the kits needed, then getting yourself a growing marijuana ebook would be a good idea.

Basic Kit for Growing Weed Indoors in NFT Tanks:

1. High pressure sodium lamps or HID lights– emit the red light spectrum and is best to use during the flowering stage. Use 400 watts for an indoor garden with smaller space and 600 watts for bigger space.

2. Oscillating fan- if possible, let it run for the whole day to provide good ventilation.

3. Timer– use this with a high power switch to control light periods.

4. NFT tank– it comes with a spreader mat and a pump.

5. Rockwool cubes– made from the melting basaltic rock spinning into thin strands which are formed into cubes when cooled.

6. pH tester– to test the acidity or alkalinity of the nutrient feed solution and water.

7. Nutrients– to maintain vigor and healthy growth of the weed plants.

8. Phosphoric acid– a pH adjuster to adjust the pH of water and nutrient feed solution to make it stable at around 5.2 to 6.

9. White plastic/white paint– wall covering for the indoor pot garden.

  8. Nutrients- for optimal growth.

Cultivating marijuana in pots and NFT tanks also make use of big syringe, measuring jug, measuring bucket and pea netting or string to serve as support for heavy cannabis plants. TDS meter or Total Dissolved Solids meter is quite pricey but it is also best to have so you can regularly check the level of nutrients present in the feeding solutions. Open the space or use extractor fans to make sure of providing proper ventilation because in growing weed indoors, there is tendency that the indoor room becomes humid.
