Which Indoor Marijuana Growing Kit Should You Buy?

Which Indoor Marijuana Growing Kit Should you Buy

We live in a beautiful era. No longer are we dependent on weather or climate to grow whatever kinds of herbs we desire whenever we desire. No more finding hidden patches of dirt to cultivate cannabis on the sly. 

Now you can quickly bring home – or have delivered to your door – all the tools you need for an indoor garden. It’s called an indoor marijuana growing kit, and it includes all the supplies necessary to start what’s known as a grow box.



What Is An Indoor Marijuana Growing Kit?

You may have heard about hydroponics, which is one of the two methods a grow box can employ. The other is soil. A grow box allows you to have perfect growing conditions year round because you control it! It’s an entirely self-contained growing environment. You control the amount of light it receives. You control how much water it consumes.

An indoor marijuana growing kit, naturally, provides all the elements you need to set up, maintain and cultivate a healthy indoor garden where the cannabis can grow like the weed it is, free of suspicious characters discovering it or mother nature wreaking her havoc upon it. 

After we discuss the pros and cons of indoor marijuana growing kits, I will tell you what you can expect to find in the kit, as well as what to look for when selecting your kit.

What Are The Benefits Of Getting An Indoor Marijuana Growing Kit

The choice is yours, of course, between indoor and outdoor marijuana growing. Here, rather than spend time on outdoor, we will concentrate only on the pros and cons of indoor growing.



Control Over Your Grow

The #1 biggest pro is control. Control over the environment. There are many options for indoor growing, hydroponic being the most well-known. You can set temperatures, light cycles, humidity levels, and CO2 production. Grow kits have all the tools you need to maximize control of these elements. Indoor growing produces pleasing plants, visually striking and high in potency. You can live anywhere on earth you like and never worry about weather conditions.

No natural elements like snow or hurricanes to destroy an entire yield. Even a beginner grower can yield up to half a pound every two months. You can get up to four harvests a year indoor instead of just the one. There is far more control over the size of your plants as well. With a grow kit you don’t need a tent – although you can get a grow tent kit – and you can set up your grow box almost anywhere.

Security

Then there’s the safety and security. No nosy neighbors are going to snitch on you if your grow operation is hidden indoors. Not only are you protected from climates, but you are also protected from being discovered by unwanted authorities or greedy thieves.

Although indoors greatly aid the “out of sight, out of mind” factor, it can be detected by other senses, such as smell. Proper ventilation is very important, and without it, the neighbors may pick up on your “hobby”. Also consider that the lighting and fans may create bothersome noise. So these are things you will have to think about beyond what is included in the kit. There will be additional expenses.

What Are The Cons Of Getting An Indoor Marijuana Growing Kit

Those are the pros. Let’s take a minute to consider the cons.

Less Space

The initial set up can be expensive, and it may take a few harvests to make up the difference. There’s the tent, the lights and so much more. And the learning curve, of course. Also, you can be limited by the amount of space you have. Outdoor grows, although less frequent, can have higher yields simply because they grow bigger because they have more space. The energy bills can also get expensive for all the lights, and you may have to seek conservation methods.



Can Get Expensive

Another thing that can get expensive is the flip side of nature. Without naturally occurring predators like bees and other insects outdoors, the pests that they usually consume can become a problem leading to expensive fertilizers and pesticides, which can then force you to adjust other variables, like ph levels, or add nutrients for counterbalance. Getting a grow kit will help you at least make a more affordable package in the beginning so you won’t break your bank buying accessories and maintenance.

Pros Of Indoor Marijuana Growing Kits

    • Control
    • Speed
    • Security
    • Protection from nature’s elements
    • Higher potency
    • Higher yield frequency

Cons Of Indoor Marijuana Growing Kits

    • Expensive setup
    • Expensive utility bills
    • Noisy
    • Smelly
    • Limited space
    • Smaller yields

What To Look For In An Indoor Marijuana Growing Kit

There are lots of choices you have to make for yourself before selecting a grow kit, such as what kind of lighting you want to use, what kind of system, which nutrients you intend to use, what type of seed, tent size should you use one. But a basic complete grow kit will include a tent, some kind of lighting system, and some type of fan or ventilation.

Beyond these foundation elements, you will need to be specific and personal about whether you need a drip system or soil, what kind of pot -not the cannabis, the container – and which nutrients you will want have on hand. Then you can follow that by choosing things such as power strips, timers and ducting.

Make sure the kit is streamlined and compatible and compare prices to make sure you are getting the best value on everything included, or whether it is more efficient to add some elements on as accessories. We’ll discuss accessories before the end of this article, but first here is a sampling of what we think are some of the best kits for the best value out there, waiting for you to take them home and put them to work.

Useful Indoor Growing Accessories

So you have, hopefully, by now, settled on a method of growing, and your space, and which kit is appropriate for all your needs from space to equipment to budget. Now you know what accessories are not included. There also may be some accessories you didn’t even think about, or may make your job easier.

Indoor Cannabis Growing Electronic Supplies

All the kits we covered include a tent, lighting, and ventilation of some kind. Others even include some nutrients, or soil, or containers. But that’s not all you need. You will want a timer for automatic feeding and watering, and even lighting , you may want a ballast. Very few kits include a ballast too. Not all have a thermometer or hygrometer, which are essential tools.

Our suggestion is when you’re budgeting, make a separate list of the accessories you will want and do the math on those first, so you can select a kit that leaves you with a budget for accessories.

Utilities

Some useful accessories you might not have thought about include a watering can, a spray bottle for leaves, some clip or desk fans. Bamboo sticks can help support vertical growth of your plants. T5 Fluorescent Tube Lights for the vegetative state will aid in the production of resin. You can get temperature and humidity sensor systems. Pruners are helpful for trimming instead of common household scissors. Plant labels for different strains can give your garden an organized touch.

What Are You Waiting For?

Well, we hope you have learned a thing or five here from our guide. Many of these terms and functions may be new to you. Look them up, get familiar, figure out how it all works together and what works best for you.

We do our best to educate and inform you, but be aware that we suggest you follow your own map and research what these components are, how they function, what suits your circumstances most comfortably, what your goals are, and other pertinent information before you purchase your indoor marijuana growing kit.

That will ultimately be the deciding factor in making your garden work for you. We wish you the best of luck on your journey, and we hope we can one day sample the fruits of your labor!
