Another avid toker just saying hello :)

Hello all! 

 

Been a massive enthusiast for the herb, for about 10 years (on a consumer level anyway) 

currently looking into growing my own in the near future on a personal level. If I’m being honest I can’t believe it’s taken me 10 years to come to the conclusion I really should be doing this myself!

so for everyone reading this with any experience, you can expect lots of questions you’ve probably been asked over a thousand times as well as some probably really daft ones from me.

 

Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the welcome mate! 

 

Thats 100% the reason behind it! I can’t justify handing over £200 for an Oz of what’s essentially plant matter anymore. That and there’s strains I’d like that I currently can’t get. I’m still trying to work out the cons of doing it before I do it but I’m struggling to find any that outweigh the pros!

It does seem like a really welcoming and knowledgable place! 

28 years?! Wow, and I thought I was being patient! Haha 

would you say it’s one of the best decisions youve made?

Thanks mate! 

I have a feeling that part of it is going to be harder than the actual process haha but I am in complete agreement with your advice all the same. I will have to behave like walls have ears lol

I haven’t even thought of an excuse if ever I was questioned. I think I’d probably use something along them same lines though lol 

definitely using them 3 things as my mantra from now on haha 

thank you mate! Likewise!

Welcome, you'll love it here, don't worry about trying to learn everything all at once, there's just too much info. Try and be a sponge and suck it all up.

 

Bit of practical advice; if your forward planning your grow its good to be mindful of what you need and when you need it; it can be very expensive buying everything all at once.

 

Firstly you will need a tent and a light and a fan for intake/outtake, eventually you will need a carbon filter, this isn't necessary for the first two months whilst looking after seedings and the first few weeks in veg but will be absolutely essential later on. 

It's up to you if you want to invest in any propagation materials, some just plant seeds straight into their growing medium, whack a light on n go.

 

Good luck whichever route you take
