The easiest and the fastest way to start growing weed at home is to get yourself a decent grow tent. They’re cheap, made to grow inside of and can be put up and taken down quickly by one person. The best starter size would be 4’x 4’ which holds 4 plants easily as per health Canada legal cannabis growing regulations.
Then, you’ll need a growlight. Here you have a few options: HID (High-Intensity Discharge) lighting, HPS (High-Pressure Sodium) or MH (Metal Halide) systems with ballasts, bulbs and reflectors. If heat from these lights will be an issue, there are also LED (Light-Emitting Diode) and CFL (Compact Fluorescent) systems you can employ. Be sure to get a light that covers your tent’s footprint and invest in a decent timer to control when your light turns on and off.
You’ll also need an exhaust fan and activated carbon filter to reduce heat and eliminate odors. Be sure to get one that’s rated for your tent’s size with the proper ducting size. A clip-on circulating fan will keep air moving and stop it from being stagnant. A thermometer/hygrometer is also a must for keeping track of temperature and humidity.
And finally, the last step in preparations is to get a simple loose and airy soil mix in 3-5 gallon buckets are great for beginners and much more forgiving than any hydroponic system. Be sure to cut holes in the bottom of the buckets (if yours don’t have holes) and use saucers under them to catch any overflow. You’ll need to purchase nutrients to feed to your plants as they grow and a watering can as well.
