Not only am I broke, I'm cheap. (Stupid too, but those are stories for another day.) So when I got fed up paying much coin for ditchweed I decided to take the bull by the tail and face the situation. I did research into indoor growing because I'm paralyzed from an accident. My problem is that I have quasi-official visitors from various agencies to "monitor" my care. (These people treat the physically handicapped like we're children, which is beaucoup annoying .) Whenever they come over, I feel like I'm running a garage sale because they look around as if they're shopping. Ipso facto - maybe even post hoc ergo propter hoc - only place it was practical for me to grow was in a closet, and since I own a house built in the 1930s when people didn't have as much crap as today the closet is tiny. I mean just that. It's 5' high, 3' deep and 2' across. I found the ideal system. It's a deep-water culture setup in a 5-gallon bucket. I dropped a yard and change on the equipment. It included the bucket, two CF lights with reflectors, a net pot, aquarium stones, rock wool, nutrients, air pump and air stone. The D-I-Y cost would have been lower, but since I'm a complete beginner I wanted to get everything at once. Skip to the present: I have a flowering female as my first test grow which should be ready to harvest soon. I got another rig and some lowryder fems from Attitude which will start as soon as I harvest so I'll have two plants going at once. I'm not that worried about a big harvest because this is strictly a head stash. I figure un-pollinated, properly harvested dried and cured weed will be a huge step up from the lousy crap I usually get. The last quarter I got had 54 seeds. The guy said it must have gotten pollinated by accident; I told him 54 seeds meant the plant didn't just get pollinated once, it was a whore. All of this is happening without a huge layout of cash or a sophisticated setup. I do use distilled water to give me a good baseline without any of the pollutants from the city system, even though our tap water comes from Skaneateles Lake in Upstate New York. So my point is that it doesn't require an insane investment or military precision to grow. My system is ideal for my situation. I'll just be happy with enough, which is as good as a feast, right?
