if you grow say 1 or 2 plants, what's the average rate of return you can expect to get from them?

If you know what you're doing, slightly less than an ounce for a 4 ft tall plant.
If you have no experience, around a quarter.
These are averages and actual plant weight can vary wildly.

if you really, really know what you're doing then you can squeeze a whole bunch of ounces out of a 4-footer

It really comes down to genetics. Cannabis can range from 50cm to 5m, dense or fluffy buds, fast growing or slow growing etc. + growing conditions.

Im growing automatics atm which will get around 60cm tall. I can expect at the very least 15g per plant, 30g if everyone goes perfectly just 2.5 months after germinating the seeds (each seed costs about 5$). Thats PLENTY for me

There is always some secluded place in the bushes my friend. Now is the month to plant outdoors.
Just buy a hardy strain (F.e. Dutch Passion if you live in Europe or some small automatic if stealth/Small size is an absolute priority) and put it in the ground.

You'll be suprised how little care esp. the automatics need.

The four elements of growing plants: Earth, water, sunlight (fire) and clean (AKA no pests/bugs) air.

Seriously though insects are useless assholes. I've come to appreciate spiders a lot more.

Anyone ever have a tri-leaf seedling? Got my first ever. Really hoping it makes it to adulthood. Want to try breeding it, then going to work on its kids and trying to make a stable tri-leaf strain.

I stumbled on someone else's guerrilla patch a couple weeks ago with about 30 seedlings coming up and one of them was one of those 3 leaf ones. If I didn't know how sketched out it makes a guy when his guerrilla patch get fucked with I'd have took that one. it was neat-o as fuck.

I grow with led, two plans at a time. I usually harvest 3-4 oz per plant, so it is enough to keep me smoking around an oz a week.

I don't have the 500 bucks to get a decent setup right now, and I don't want to spend that 500 just to possibly get the setup taken away from me. Maybe later in the year

I still have an old Gorilla grow tent packed up, and a proper LED growlight. But that shit's loud, I was thinking of getting a transparent grow tent (normally for tomatoes etc.) and just use the sunny weather we have right now. Bit risky considering the weather here sucks dicks but light-wise I should be fine.

It's pretty cool since i vape i use no more then 80-100g a year (i guess didn't keep track of it) So one small plant keeps me going long. I'm growing a bit of a surplus now so i can give it to people for free and i'm that cewl guy that gives weed

Glad you asked me.

Obviously you want an inline fan, carbon scrubber, ducting, a grow tent, fan and a bubbleponics setup. Probably.

Carbon Filter - 30$
Inline Fan - 20$
Growtent (f.e. Secret Jardin) 40cmx40cmx140cm - 40$
fan - 20$ (If you dont already have one laying around)
Bubbleponics - 10$ (Cant post links, look on 'banggood' for air pump) + netting pots + free bucket + rockwool or similar
Ducting - ?

>Thats 120$ without lights

I bought these and glued them to a scavenged heatsink (CPU heatsink, GPU Heatsinks, or a solid piece of metal with some ventilation (you can blow your fan around this) will do great
1x 100W Warm White LED + Driver (Cant post links, look on 'banggood') 12$
1x 100W White LED + Driver (Cant post links, look on 'banggood')12$
2x 100W Plant Spectrum LED + Driver (Cant post links, look on 'banggood') 25$

>Thats another 50$ for lighting, but you can grow with 200W total too (25$).

You'll also need nutrients. My local stores has a fertilizer solution with every trace element + a desireable npk for just 2$ (Germany only, Aldis "Gardenline Flüssigdünger")


Let me know if I helped you take that next step

haha damn - another correction, and a ph+ec meter (20$ total) (because bubbleponics)
But I wouldnt fault you if you grew in a coco coir + soil mix (5$) on your first grow where you dont need to pay attention to PH and EC much

Just a regular 100W Cob LED on some random heatsink.
You can buy brand stuff, but I found that banggoods LEDs are of very high quality nowadays

Soldering is fucking easy. You could do it with 10$ resources and 10 patient minutes. Wikihow is your friend

And the mains (240v or 120v) you connect to a cut off computer cable f.e. uskng proper connectors (1$)
Dont solder the mains and make sure to connect ground to your heatsink should the driver overheat or something.
