Beginner’s Setup Guide for Growing Indoors

Growing indoors provides several advantages over outdoor growing. It allows you to have more control over your crop in terms of lighting, temperature, humidity, etc., as well as gives you greater predictability in your yield. Indoor growing also allows for year round growing which means more harvests.

When setting up your grow space there are several factors that you need to take into consideration. You will need to dedicate a space and create a controlled environment for your cannabis plants complete with proper grow lights and ventilation. In addition, you will need pots or trays for your plants to grow in as well as nutrients and soil. Many growers choose to purchase equipment for when it comes time to harvest such as bud trimmers. There are a number of additional accessories that are available to growers as well. For example timers and controls to monitor your system can be very beneficial and allow you more freedom.

In this guide we will take a closer look at what exactly is needed to create your cannabis growing setup. We will go through step by step and delve into more detail about what it takes to successfully grow cannabis indoors. Included are several lists of recommended products for each step as well.

Grow Space

Indoor growers typically grow in one of three places, depending on the scale of the operation. Large scale growers can often dedicate a whole warehouse sized space to their cannabis plants. Smaller scale growers usually have either a small room or a grow tent.

There is no right or wrong sized space when it comes to growing cannabis. However the size of your grow space will play a significant role in how many plants you are able to house. Regardless of the size of your grow space, it will still need to be a controlled environment.

The equipment you purchase will vary slightly depending on the size of your grow space as well. Take grow lights for example. Lights with higher wattage are typically able to cover more square feet of grow space. So if you have a large warehouse you will need several higher watt lights in order to cover your cannabis plants. On the other hand, if you only have a small grow tent you should be able to get by with only one or two lower watt lights.

The same goes for ventilation. There are several companies who specialize in industrial sized fans made to circulate air in large spaces. There are also models that are more suited for small rooms.

These are just some of the things to keep in mind when determining the size of your grow space. If you have any plans of growing your operations in the near future, it may be wise to invest in a larger space to begin with. That way you’ll already have the space and equipment needed when your crop is larger.

If you are only planning to have a small number of cannabis plants, perhaps you’re only growing for personal consumption, it will probably be in your best interest to purchase a grow tent. Grow tents are handy little contraptions that create a controlled environment that can be placed virtually anywhere. They are typically made of a heavy duty, tear proof, lightproof and waterproof material such as vinyl or oxford cloth. Good grow tents also have a reflective inner lining, usually made of mylar. Most have built in mesh vents and openings for grow lights, power cords and fans. They come in a variety of sizes, suitable for any small scale grower.
