Many growers prefer to grow their Cannabis indoors. You can turn your basement or any other room in your house into a growing room. The first thing to do is to prepare your room. First, install a lock on the door and secure the windows. .This is to avoid unauthorized personnel from gaining access to your grow room. After that you may now start on working on the room itself. Air is an important factor in growing cannabis. Plants need proper ventilation to be healthy. Install a ventilation system, make sure that the exhaust is located in a high place. Warm, used air is lighter than cool air. Placing the exhaust in a high place ensures that the air removed would be the warm air. The air inlet should be placed in a low area, preferably at the opposite end of the room. Make sure that the air inlet is two times bigger than the exhaust, so that the room will have an abundant supply of fresh air.

Remember to check the pH of the soil, Cannabis prefer a soil pH of 6.0-7.5. for expert growers, they can easily tell if the soil has high acidity but for newbies, there is a need to get a meter ph tester.
Water is another essential element, Cannabis do not need to be watered on a daily basis. Inspect the top soil. If the soil has dried out, this indicates that your plants need to be watered.
