The decision to start growing marijuana comes with a lot of responsibilities. First, you must find out if growing marijuana is legal in your area. If it is, you have to be able to prove that you need medical marijuana for your treatment. You will then be issued a medical marijuana license that you can present every time you buy marijuana. If not, maybe you have to move to another place where it is legal so you will not violate any laws and be executed if you get caught. 

Marijuana can be grown both indoors and outdoors. Search for a grow store near you where you can acquire the materials for the garden. Make a list of what you need and go to various stores to purchase them. 

Below are some of the basic materials that you must have to be able to grow marijuana: 

Soil is an important factor in growing marijuana. If possible, it should be organic and has sufficient amounts of different types of nutrients that are needed for the proper growth of the plants. What growers usually do is to start with a first batch of containers with the soil where the seeds are planted. After 30 days, the plants are transferred to bigger containers with soil that is less medium and has to be mixed with more types of nutrients. 

In order to stay alive and healthy, plants need proper nutrients all throughout their life cycle. You can find out what these nutrients are by doing some research for the most appropriate nutrients in the different stages of marijuana development. Start with the budding stage, followed by the vegetative stage and the flowering stage. 

The marijuana plants will be transplanted to containers of different sizes thrice. You will have to begin with small cups that can handle the seeds until they start growing roots. Next, one-gallon pots are needed where the plants will thrive in the next 20 or so days. Once the root structure reaches its maximum size, the plants need to be contained in 5-20 gallon pots until harvest time. 

If you choose to grow indoors, you will need HID lights to serve as an alternative to natural sunlight. These lights will help the plants proceed with the photosynthesis process until the end of their cycle. Additionally, you will need electric fans to keep the space ventilated and the fresh air circulating. These will also prevent the room from getting too warm at times. 

To keep track of the humidity and temperature in the room, purchase a temperature and humidity gauge. This instrument will help tell you when you should add more fans in the room or if you need to adjust the humidity level. 

There are other tools that you may need to grow marijuana so make sure to do some more research and consult a marijuana growing expert for tips and advice.
