    I'm going to be starting my first real grow very soon. I'm going to try and start it in a homemade stash box dimensions 3wx3dx4h. I have the lights and everything already, I just want to know what would be better for me to try and start for having dense plants.

    I've had gardens my whole life, not ever marijuana, but just regular vegetable bearing plants. I know soil, very well. I understand drainage, and airation. I understand the ph levels on it, and I'm very good at making, perfect soil, with normal mixes. For example, worm castings, perlite, bat gueno, and other normal mixes. The thing is I've seen huge, dense buds come from hydro, I've never done it. It looks simple, but I don't know which is better, or how complicated it could become.

    I'd hate to start a crop, and because of something simple lose it. So help please, in the enviroment I'm trying, what is best?:confused:
  2. Soil is alot less maitnence, with hydro you need a ph/pmm meter you have to b uy the special nutes for hydro, ph swings and too high of nute pmm can kill your plants pretty darn fast with hydro, dense buds are dependent on how strong your lights are and what strain, indica's tend to have denser buds and growth.
