    Piracy was that bad for the other books? I like both types but understand why some people don't release digital.

    I can understand how one might want to protect their hard work, but yeah I would certainly have a digital copy too if there was one available

    from what I understand the book is pretty beautiful to look at too, all my old grow books (before going digital) got wet or dirty over the times or whatever so I haven't invested in the encyclopedia yet as it will undoubtedly suffer the same fate LOL shit gets messy around here eh, shame I won't be getting a digital copy any time soon by the sound of it either

    no worries

    Your response made me smile. Probably a little too much.

    Ummm...I'm not growing this year, I actually dont want to grow till it's legal to do so but I figured in the mean time I can learn things to help limit some of the beginner mistakes.

    I just ordered a couple books but found this site when I googled if I could get this book on my kindle. Then I started reading the comments and here I am.

    I'm taking notes so far all I have is "research flowering times by regions". I know, it's a slow start lol.

    Cheers

    There is a ton of things to consider. And it shows how careful you want to approach this. Very wise. No matter what you do or how much you read you will make mistakes your first grow. Thats all there is to it. This is my...4th outdoors grow and...probably 5-10 runs indoors and out to make seeds. Gets a little foggy...probably was high ...anyways i find myself still making stupid mistakes. Some things to consider...i live in California and jt is illegal to grow outdoors in my town. Just saying...even when it goes legal you may STILL be waiting. But things for you to research. Since it sounds like you have your "research rat" hat on.
    1) Indoors or out? Greatly determined by if you have a yard or not and your latitude. (Weather)
    2) Indoors? Soil type or soilless. Coco coir is best for plants and nutrient uptake. Peat moss is next. (Peat has a low pH) Or hydro, which has another set of things.
    *indoors comes with a ton of other things to consider. Some of which are
    A) type of light. HPS or LED?
    B) air movement/cooling
    C) carbon filter to hide smell
    D) grow in a tent, cabinet or entire room
    3) both indoors and outdoors require nutrients.
    A) organics - needs time to break down.
    B) chemical ferts - readily available for plant to uptake.
    Also easy to over feed.
    *if you go the chemical fert (bottle nutes) there are a ton of them out there and tons of reviews as well.

    Those are just a few points to start to consider when planning your first grow. Even those wont cover everything. Like with the hydro set up. Its beyond me. I grow organics outdoors and run little 3 gal pots indoors with bottle nutes in the winter. But again welcome and we are glad to have you here.

    You need a book rest, pal. Buy one. You bought an encyclopedia, not a pocket book.
