    Even if you haven't had any prior experience with growing plants in you home, you can have a successful crop of marijuana by following the simple directions in this series. Growing a marijuana plant involves four basic steps:

    1. Get the seeds. If you don't already have some, you can ask your friends to save you seeds out of any good grass they may come across. You'll find that lots of people already have a seed collection of some sort and are willing to part with a few prime seeds in exchange for some of the finished product.

    2. Germinate the seeds. You can simply drop a seed into moist soil, but by germinating the seeds first you can be sure that the seed will indeed produce a plant. To germinate seeds, place a group of them between about six moist paper towels, or in the pores of a moist sponge. Leave the towels or sponge moist but not soaking wet. Some seeds will germinate in 24 hours while others may take several days or even a week.

    3, as soon as the seeds begin to crack open and sprout, place it on some moist soil and sprinkle a little soil over the top of it.

    The soil is the next best thing after good quality seeds. It should be

    a, sterilised soil (to avoid parasites)
    b, have a ph level of 6.5 and 7.5
    c, contain humus for retaining moisture and nutrients

    4, Light, Flourescent work best. Hang the lights within two inches of the soil and as the plants grow, within two inches of the plants

    Good directions. I'm pretty new at this (which is why I'm here). When you germinate the seeds, do you want to place it on a big paper towel? Also when you say 6, do you mean 3 on top, 3 on bottom, with the seeds in the middle?

    Use a regular papertowel that you can buy anywhere, set the seeds ontop of all 6 of the papertowels. Make sure they are moist then fold them over like an envelope, All your doing is letting the moiture break the outershell of the seed so they can germinate.

    Another method is just to throw them in a cup of water (coffee mug works best) put a plate on top of the mug and stick the mug on one of your heater vents.

    Good luck

    Sounds good. Now for the coffee mug technique, should I fully submerse the seeds inside of the cup?

    If they float, it more than likely they won't germinate anyway. Viable seeds should sink in the water.

    Don't be tempted to try and sample the finished product before its ready. I know I did the first time and it was just a waste. Wait until it is completely ready and then harvest it :)

    Can you discuss watering schedule for soil grows indoors. How about when to start feeding and how much to feed. Using a TDS tester?
