This book is the indispensable guide for all 'budding' cannabis growers. Pitched very much at the inexperienced indoor grower, the book sets out to explain cannabis cultivation as if it were conventional gardening. Fully illustrated with step by step pictures and clear and concise captions, the tone of the text is light and delivered in plain language, without technical jargon. After explaining a little about the properties of the marijuana plant, section one addresses the basics of getting started (including finding the right space and the myriad of supplies needed - lights, heater, PH tester, fertilizer etc). Then, it is time to start the garden groundwork deciding on seedlings or clones, organic or hydroponics and choosing containers. Subsequent chapters explain the levels of watering and fertilizer application needed and general care during growth; pruning and staking; harvesting; curing and drying and lastly cleaning up and restarting for the next harvest. Each section has a short refresher piece at the end to enable the grower to double-check work done before proceeding to the next stage, while a troubleshooting page at the rear of the book explores some common problems and how to find solutions.
