What Are The Expenses When Growing Marijuana Indoor And Outdoor

There are several reasons why someone decides to grow marijuana. It may be for personal reasons, or maybe you are unsatisfied with the type of weed you are buying, it could even be that you want to make some extra money.

It is not hard at all to grow marijuana so long as you are willing to give the time and energy it takes to do this. It really only takes a few hours a week to get a great harvest. You really don’t need to grow a ton of cannabis plants to get enough weed. If you keep it small, there is no reason growing marijuana should be expensive. Even when growing with lamps indoors, a single marijuana plant can yield a whole pound of weed with the proper growing techniques. Clearly, less is the most cost-effective option!

Now, you must keep in mind that the results you get can be different based on where you live.

It doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of money growing marijuana if you are only doing it for personal use. The simplest way to grow is outdoors since everything required is already provided by Mother Nature. The soil is packed with plenty of nutrients, every day the sun will rise and the plants will receive water when it rains. So, to get started you just need marijuana seeds and you will also want to buy things like fertilizer and pots to enhance the growing experience.

Indoor growing does not have to be expensive either, as long as you know what you are doing. Using CFL lights will ensure a good yield and save you from having a high electric bill. If you don’t have many plants, then you will not need both a fan and carbon filter to cut down the odor. You just need seeds, CFL lights, a little fan, and pots, for as little as $80 or less.


When you grow your own cannabis you are the one who gets to be in control. You feed your plants the nutrients you want, you choose whether to grow hydroponically, whether to go organic, you name it. The choice is yours. If you get good enough maybe you can cultivate your own strain.

There are various cost-cutting measures you can undertake to lower the cost of growing marijuana. For instance, you can purchase a marijuana indoor growing kit to cut on the cost of acquiring soil, pots, watering can etc. Also, you can use LED lights instead of Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL) which are energy intensive. LED can save you money used to pay hefty electricity bills.
