What are the Biggest headaches to watch out for?

  1. Hello. I am considering a first time self grow and was curious what other growers found to be the biggest pains in the ass/insightful learning moments during the process. I'm also curious what part of the grow or process growers wish was more convenient or easier to manage. Thank you for your input!
  2. Most people seem to get their head too wrapped around nutrients. Which brands, which types, what kind of strength, when, and how much.

    I'm so glad I went to growing organic, just water when dry, such a hassle free way to grow.

    trimming you may find redundant but everything else is fun and therapeutic. If you want to really have fun and grow some quality meds, make sure you practice pest, mildew, and mold prevention. Notice I didn’t say management or control, prevention is key.

  5. Organic like how?
  6. in the following order
    1: Cops
    2: Robbers
    3: & Mold

    I could add 'over nuteing', but new growers soon learn to stop over doing it

    my own preference is 'Trimming'

    good luck

  7. Organic as in growing your plants in something that is full of life for the plant to feed off. Instead of feeding bottled nutrients in with the water, feeding the roots directly, you create a nice environment in the soil for the roots to grow. You feed the soil, not the plant. So the plant is able to take and use all the nutrients it wants, without taking up too much.
  8. Don't compare your grow with others. It's a lesson in futility. Environments are so different from one grower to the next, that you can end up quite frustrated.
  9. Outdoor or indoor? Different challenges entirely. Every outdoor grower I'm sure has battled pests and budrot. Im about as diligent as I can be with preventative maintenance for pests and mold, but I can't seem to get it under control. Tossed probably 10 oz due to caterpillars, even with weekly neem treatments and BT. Very few issues indoors. Trimming is my favorite part for sure, but really every aspect of cultivation is enjoyable, including solving problems. Just keep it simple to start...good lights, soil, nutrients, temp and humidity. Getting those right will make every bit of it enjoyable.
