Growing indoors is very popular. The benefits of growing marijuana indoors is that you have 100% full control of the environment that you simply cannot regulate outdoors – that means you are guaranteed to get a good quality plant virtually every time and will be able to keep your plants safe during their delicate growth cycles. Growing indoors can make way for some seriously wicked bud. Indoor growing means you have complete control over the grow elements: humidity, optimal temperature, nutrients, lighting, and so many other crucial factors that are essential for the plants thriving growth. In addition you also have full control over when and how to flower your plants by illuminating them, as you do not when growing outdoors.
Certain key chemical processes undergo change when exposed to lighting, and that can radically alter your buds production & timing, an element impossible to regulate when growing in sunshine. Another key benefit is the avoiding of various pests & diseases. Setting up an isolated, sterile growth environment means your plants can spend less time fighting off mould spores and insects, and more time producing heavy sparkling rich buds. It is also much safer to grow indoors and nearly impossible to get caught by those who do not understand your art form.
It is of the opinion of many established growers in the ganja community today that the quality of marijuana grown indoors is far superior to marijuana grown outdoors, which is essential if you are going to be selling to picky clientele.
But, others disagree. They take a more spiritual standpoint and argue that the sun contains living energy that nourishes, heals, and supplies life to the planet and the plant. Many feel that scientists are at their infancy in determining the chemical-biological processes undergoing from plant photosynthesis and light acquisition.
That is why, there are of course disadvantages to growing marijuana indoors. Natural sunlight is the best source of lighting for any Earthly crop. Indoor lighting is powerful, but nothing comes close to the solar orb. Also, ventilation issues are often a big concern for indoor growers. An enclosed area often generates heat and lacks sufficient fresh air. Both of these problems can be easily remedied with a proper ventilation system though (discussed in detail later). Failure to ventilate and regulate humidity & temperature in your grow room is failure to grow satisfying buds. Also before deciding, keep in mind growing indoors, depending on the space you choose, will generally tend to produce smaller crops. This is actually desirable for many indoor cultivars. Depending on the space you decide to grow in, the crops usually will not reach the height they normally would outdoors.
