Episode 2 introduces the steps of successful germination, breaking down the materials you’ll need to turn your seeds into cannabis sprouts. You’ll need a medium for the seeds, a pH testing kit, a TDS pen, a water basin, a seedling tray, a humidity dome, and a seedling heat mat. With your materials assembled, you’ll then learn how to alter the pH in your water supply to achieve stability, how to inspect your seeds and weed out the bad ones prior to planting, and how to ensure that your environment is actively encouraging seedling growth. In a few days, you’ll check back on the seeds to see how you’ve done.
In Episode 1, you’ll learn the difference between closed loop growing systems and high CFM growing systems, figure out how to choose the right lighting for any given system or space, and understand the differences between hydroponic and soil growing. You’ll also learn about each of the individual elements that your growing space requires: adequate lighting, reflective walls, suitable water supply, cleanable surfaces, an organizational area for tools, ample growing space, consistent air circulation, and a device to monitor temperature and humidity. Intimidated? Don’t be – let Rory walk you through how to set up a grow.
For a plant that’s so widely cultivated and consumed, cannabis can be a tricky to coax into full bloom, especially when growing at home. Myriad factors influence the final product: lighting, temperature, air circulation, nutrients, growing methods, and many more among them. This can be intimidating for beginner growers who want to get started but aren’t quite sure how. If tools and terms like TDS pens, NPK value, pH stability, and “nutrient burn” make you want to wilt, don’t worry – for one thing, you’re not alone, and for another, you can still grow cannabis indoors like a pro.
In the interest of providing a gateway for aspiring growers to plant their first cannabis crops, SuperCloset, which offers a variety of customizable and award-winning grow cabinets, hydroponic systems, and grow rooms to suit DIY growers’ needs, has developed a comprehensive series of instructional videos covering everything you need to know to grow. In these episodes of the Grow Like a SuperPro series, Rory will cover everything you need to know in order to set up your own indoor cannabis garden and make the most of your space as you get your seedlings started.

Last but not least, it’s also good to think of an “emergency” plan or what you are going to do if somebody spills the beans to someone like your parents. Would you be able to discard your closet swiftly, or can you mask the closet so that it still looks like you are keeping clothes inside it? When you are done contemplating your grow strategy, follow the next five steps to fulfill your closet grow mission.

#4: Controlling your plants
Converting Your Closet Into a Grow Room
Setting up the lights is a very important step. The grow lights you install in your closet are going to be the only source of light your plants are going to receive, so it’s really important that you do this part right. It’s not going to work if you keep your green pal in the dark.
You’ll have a much easier time establishing and maintaining the ideal conditions in a closet, and of course, when your weed grows in the ideal environment, naturally, your buds are going to be a whole lot better.
Choose a Closet
You can also use soil, of course. If you’re going to opt for soil, using an organic option, such as super soil, is your best bet, as you won’t have to worry about your plants being contaminated with chemicals and other pollutants, and they’ll receive the nutrients that are needed to support optimal growth.
Perhaps it’s because you don’t want to deal with finding a reliable source, you’re tired of paying exorbitant prices, or you’re interested in becoming a supplier for others; no matter the reason, growing your own weed can be quite rewarding, but it isn’t without it’s challenges.
3. Total control and better results.
Your first closet grow can be a little intimidating; however, with the right supplies, set-up, and patience, you should be able to successfully cultivate your very own ganja under the radar of prying eyes (and noses).
First, let’s explore some of the benefits of growing ganja in a closet. Here’s a look at some great reasons why transforming a closet into your designated weed cultivation spot.
