Growing marijuana plants indoors

Choosing a variety is of major importance.
Yields and quality of plants grown under artificial lights mostly depend on:

1. the seed variety,
2. whether the plants are grown from seeds or clones,
3. after how many days of growing the plants are put into flowering, and
4. the optimization of the climatic conditions of the grow-room.

Apart from "true breeding" varieties, our seed collection consists of different F-1 hybrids. Crossing two "true breeding" strains (hybridizing) gives F-1 hybrids that possess the so-called "Hybrid Vigor". This means that the F-1 generation is a lot more potent than either parent. F-1 generations also consist of uniform plants.

Growing cannabis indoors has seen a dramatic rise in popularity in recent years. When done properly it produces excellent quality stash which is usually much better than that sold on the streets. Growing cannabis indoors relies on the use of powerful artificial lights to replicate the effect of the sun. These lights typically take hundreds of Watts of electrical power to run and are commonly HPS (High Pressure Sodium) but fluorescent lights, metal halide, LED light and other kinds have all been used successfully.

Cannabis loves light and the successful indoor grower tries to deliver as much light as possible. Consider 250 watts/m² only as a minimum starting point and realistically aim for 2-3 times that level if possible. More light will mean bigger, denser buds and superior yields. As well as delivering high light levels the successful indoor grower keeps the plants as near the light as possible to maximise the light intensity reaching the leaves and buds. Often the personal medical or recreational grower will have a growing area of 1-2 m² designed below a single 400W or 600W high pressure sodium (HPS) lamp.

The indoor cannabis grower has to be careful that the plant doesn’t grow too near to the hot light and damage itself. If the light feels cool to the back of the hand it will be cool for the plant also. For a 400W lamp, growers may not want to allow plants to grow within 40-50cm of the bulb. Cannabis plants can be bent over and tied if they get too tall, some indoor growers deliberately train their plants this way to get as much of the plant as possible close (but not too close) to the high intensity light.

Certain strains respond well to having the growing tip of the plant pinched out (known as ‘topping’, ‘FIM’ or pinching) after the 4th or 5th leaf pair. The resulting plants are often smaller and bushy without the dominant main growth stem (or ‘cola’) and are preferred for some smaller growrooms.

Some indoor growers train the plants underneath a metal chickenwire-style screen allowing only the buds to grow vertically while the stem and growing part of the plant grow horizontally. This SCROG (screen of green) technique allows the indoor grower to keep as much of the bud growth as possible equidistant to the lamp, maximising the efficiency and yield.


Pot grow rooms the new remodel for Oakland homes

Medical marijuana patients currently are allowed a maximum of 72 plants indoors in a 36-square-foot growing area, as well as 20 outdoor plants. That might yield one pound every four months, according to Richard Lee, founder of Oaksterdam University and a staunch supporter of pro-cannabis legalization. The result: $12,000 annually at the going purchase price of $3,000 per pound among pot dispensaries. But most people would quadruple that figure.
An experienced grower can coax a higher yield and medical pot prescription holders are allowed to grow on behalf of three other patients

Landlord fingers tenants for growing marijuana in home.
By Amy Yarbrough, STAFF WRITER
DALY CITY-- Two men were arrested this week after their out-of-town landlord dropped by and discovered their $900,000 cache of pot plants, authorities said.
Monday's find, inside a home in the 100 block of Westline Drive, was the biggest indoor marijuana-growing operation seized by the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force so far this year, authorities said.
The home's owner had come in from the East Coast to have the home appraised, and called Daly City police upon finding the marijuana, according to task force spokeswoman Lt
