Figure 1. What we call a marijuana bud actually consists of multiple densely-packed female flowers. The long white "strings" are styles sticking out of individual flowers.

"INTRODUCTION                         So you’re a brand-new grower with your medical card in hand, tons of enthusiasm and energy, but at a complete loss where to begin.  We’re here to help. This guide is meant to be a beginner’s manual for legally growing medical marijuana. It does not claim encyclopedic knowledge of all the ins and outs of growing bud, but shares one grower’s experience in maximizing the quality and yield from a small number of legally-allowed plants.
 
This grower averages between one and two pounds of organically grown bud from each of his plants on an annual basis. He has worked out his issues of pest control, fertilization, and chemical-free watering with the aid and advice of “old growers” and over years of personal experimentation. Although the potency of marijuana is dependent upon the genetic make-up of a plant, the smoothness, flavor and “taste” of the bud—the overall quality—is directly affected by how a plant is grown. This grower is locally known for the yield, flavor and overall excellence of his crop.

Although your options as a medical marijuana grower include growing from seed or from clones, growing with soil or hydroponically, and growing indoors or outdoors, this guide focuses on outdoor growing of clones. The advantage to starting your garden from clones acquired from a dispensary is that you are assuring the genetic quality of your plants from the outset. You save yourself the trial and error of growing from seeds—from weaning out the frail plants to watching for hermaphrodites, males, or even reversions under stress of female to male plants (possible when growing with feminized seeds)—to name just a few issues.  Of course, the marijuana connoisseur who lives for the joy of learning every aspect of bud cultivation will grow from seed regardless—and we bless your enthusiasm and efforts with hearty well wishes—Godspeed on your quest.

For the rest of you though, we have some words of advice: Take the time to plan your garden—you’ll save time, money, and heartache by a thoughtful approach as opposed to rushing headlong and unprepared into growing. The results will be your reward for patience! Let’s begin…"
