Here are my questions. I want to grow enough ONLY for personal use. Let's say I use an ounce of weed a month, how many plants and what method would be good for a continuous supply? I don't mind being dry of weed until the first harvest, but after that I want a continuous supply of an ounce a month. A little less is OK, and a little more is OK but not too much, because I am paranoid and I suffer from anxiety disorders and depression, and a number of other mental illnesses which Pot seems to help me cope with, without the side effects of Zoloft. How many plants should I go? For this number of plants, what's the cheapest light setup I can use without sacrificing quality? (I will shell the extra cash and use HID, but how many watts and etc?) Would SOG be better in my case? For this number of plants, how much space do I need? and should I worry about the smell? I think the thing that scares most people from starting a grow is because they think it's too hard. They open up a grow guide and are bombared with new terms and all this talk about HID lights, lumens and etc.. I think it's a big turn off for most people. After I learn how to grow properly, I will attempt to write a simple guide, unless there's one I missed. Another thing is that the guides never tell you how much the average yield is, or how many plants to grow. I know it depends on many factors, but some examples would be nice.
