Hello all. I'm new to the forum and an amateur indoor grower I live in a temperate state that has legalized medicinal marijuana. I've recently obtained my certificate and I plan to grow my own stuff legally. I've grown up with an outdoor vegetable garden all my life. I've ran a couple of successful stealth CFL grows where I grew about a half ounce at max, but this will be my first HID grow with purpose made equipment. My goal is high quality with a modest budget. Ideally I would like to grow a pound, but I will settle for 12 ounces of cured product. Complying with the terms of my certificate, this means 6 plants in flower. If I can get 2.7 ounces per plant I can achieve my pound goal. If I get 2 oz per plant, I make my minimum. Either way, this will be an excellent learning experience as I dip my toes into some serious indoor gardening. I'm learning from a few good friends and merging their styles with my own. Plus the aid of the internet. I'll be keeping this post going as a record for me to look back on and to maybe help others looking to graduate to a larger grow, but I'll definitely take some advice too.
