The question just asked is, “is there a best way to grow cannabis?”
GroSkool’s freshman class focused on growing in soil. Our second class [GroSkool 2.0] began by looking at growing in a medium other than soil. This is called “hydroponic” growing. We looked at several styles of hydro including ebb-and-flow, deep water culture and aeroponics. There are other types of hydro-grows we did not examine — the wick system, the drip system, and the nutrient film technique. Which is the best way to grow — soil or hydro?
For most of the world, growing cannabis is [presently] something to be done quietly. That will change, but for the moment discretion is the watchword. The best way to grow is the way that does not attract attention. If you live in a high-rise tower you may not want to drag large bags of dirt onto the elevator. Deep water culture might be more appropriate. Where you grow informs the choice of style. If you want organic you grow in soil, though hydro people are doing their version of organic.
If this is your first grow, which style of growing appeals to you? Whatever you choose there will be lots of things that can go wrong, so don’t worry about that. Lots of other things will go right. Select a path that appeals to you, get to it, and start living the dream.
Don’t let initial setbacks make you give up. Persevere and in a reasonable time you will be smoking, or eating, or concentrating your own home sweet homegrown. Once you get reasonably proficient branch out and try a different growing style. You may like it better or discover your first choice was the way to go after all. Add to what you know — keep your brain alive.
Growers experience a different relationship with the plant than just-consumers know. Come to love cannabis the way most growers do and discover a new obsession. The best cannabis you will ever know is the cannabis you grow for yourself. As Ed Rosenthal says, “It would be easier to stop smoking cannabis than it would be to stop growing it.”
