Hey, First of all, I'm not growing to sell. I'm growing so that me and a few friends (6-7) can get stoned every Friday and Saturday night and have a good time without spending the whole day trying to find weed. This will be more convenient and less expensive. Ya know? =) 1) How many plants will I need? We usually only burn an 1/8 every weekend. Good stuff is expensive around here. I'm guessing 1 or 2. I know this depends on what strain I choose, and what yield it has. So, I'd like some recomendations on what seeds you guys think I should grow. I'm just starting out. These basic questions I've found around the internet, so you guys can better understand my needs: Q: Are you growing indoors or outdoors? A: Indoors. Outdoor site preparation seems like too much work for my living situation right now. Q: What climate zone do you live in? A: Northeast. Q: Sativa or indica? A: Indica. If I need 2 plants, I'd like one of each. Q: Soil or hydro? A: Soil. Q: Do you prefer an up high or a couch stone? A: Couch. Gotta be chilled out and relaxed. Q: Are your priorities yield and finishing time or quality and aroma? A: Stealth (damn parents) > Quality > Yield > Finishing Time > Taste. If I had to choose the smelliest, but best smoke, or a pretty bad smoke, but least smell, I would be forced to choose the one with the least smell, sadly enough. Damn parents. Q: What is your price range? How much are you willing to pay for seeds or clones? A: I thought they were all pretty cheap. I have no idea... Q: How long do you want to wait to harvest? Some are 6 week cash-croppers, some will take up to 14 weeks to flower. Many strains take 7-8 weeks. A: No plant (heh, almost) is worth 14 weeks to me. 6 sounds like dirt bud. 7-8, maybe 10 sounds reasonable. As for the actual growing part, it would be great if you guys can point me in the direction of a F.A.Q. or something that will show someone how to grow a couple plants in a closet with a budget light or two. What lights should I get? By now, you should have a feeling of my requirements. Budget is a top concern. If I think of anything else, I'll post. Thanks alot!
