Growing weed at home can be a rewarding and enjoyable hobby, but it’s important to prepare the space for your home grow properly in order to ensure the health and success of the plants. In this article, we will go over some key considerations for preparing space for your home grow.

There have been many advances in home grow and there are several steps you can take to prepare the space where you will be growing weed at home. Some things to consider include:

Choose a location that gets plenty of sunlight.

Cannabis plants need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day to grow properly. Finding a location with plentiful sunlight may sound ideal, but artificial lighting is almost always preferred to give your plants the required amount of light.

Consider the size of the plants you will be growing.

Make sure you have enough space for the plants to grow to their full size. Different strains grow different sizes.  Find the best strains to grow here.

Consider the temperature and humidity of the grow space.

Cannabis plants prefer a temperature range of 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit and a humidity range of 40-60%. A climate control system will help maintain these conditions.

Good airflow is important for the health of the plants. Ventilation brings in fresh air and CO2 to give plants what they need for photosynthesis. It also removes old air that could have an imbalance of CO2 and oxygen, slowly suffocating plants.

Consider the type of growing medium you will use.

Some options include soil, coconut coir, or hydroponics.  All of these options are available for purchase on
