Ok I know how everyone here likes pics... so im going to include a few in this post I was set on growing outside but i can control the variables alot better inside my house I am setting up a stealth grow in an entertainment center in my room. I live with my parents (I am legal...... second year of college this semester...) and this entertainment center is never used. they know I like to trash my room, and they haven't seen inside that cabinet in years. Here come the questions.... Can i completely grow my plants to full size in that small of a space? its probably about (2.5 X 3 X 2.5) ft Using some sort of method of making the plants grow small? or something? next question... What would be the best way to control smell? I have some vent filters that i planned on putting around the plants to try and help..... but we all know the scent of marijuana is strong and unmistakable... I'd love a great idea to smell proof that enclosure. next..... Do these plants like red light? Self explainable, I heard that somewhere and just need to verify It would be possible for me to transplant outside, after they grow to big for the enclosure.... but i'd really like to keep this inside. another note.... my mom smokes weed but would kill me if she found out i was growing. so smell is probably my biggest worry right now... What I am doing is is starting off six bag seeds from some great mids I had... already got them to sprout roots in a cup of water and just put them into the planter. My plan is to take the strongest two plants after a few weeks and dispose of the others... focus on those two until I HOPEFULLY get a female. If not then I will just have to start the process over. Any tips/comments/help is appreciated one more question.... when im ready for harvest... all i need to do is cut it at the root and hang it upside down for a week? Do i pick off the buds before or after it completely dries? and here is the "noob" question of the year... Is the bud all that we smoke? Ive never grown and ive smoked a lot of different looking weed. Is all I am trying to harvest the buds? and throw out all the other parts of the plant? Thanks in advance for all your help. Keep your eyes on this thread for some pics... uploading them now.
