Welcome to the Growers Guide
Growing your own cannabis is simple, once you know how. Our step by step guide to how to grow cannabis is aimed at all levels of experience, from the newbie just starting out, to the more knowledgeable marijuana grower who wants to find new tips or read about new technologies.
We want to help any new grower realize how easy and fulfilling it is to grow your own cannabis at home, whether you are planning an indoor grow room or to grow marijuana outside. The Grow Guide answers questions as basic as:
- What do I need to grow weed indoors?
- Do I need to have ventilation in my grow room?
- Grow room design and set up
- What are the best grow lights? Do CFLs and LEDs actually work?
- How much will it cost to grow cannabis indoors?
And because growing cannabis is our passion and our lifestyle, we hope always to keep this info up to date and up to spec. The aim is to help you grow weed well, produce the biggest and best buds and enjoy a mellow smoke and toke. We think that experience in growing marijuana should be shared with all cannabis growers in order that all can use this knowledge. We don’t believe the hype and think that every new innovation should be proven before purchased! And because we can’t stop trying new methods of growing we test run as many new methods as space allows to help you get the info you need to make a buying decision.
You should remember that growing cannabis is illegal in some countries and check your local laws.

OK so we may be being optimistic, but the arrival of March has seen 3 consecutive sunny days with no wind so I am declaring that Spring is definitely here! Days like these (we’ve hit 80`F) make us think of the new outdoor growing season and all the choices that are available to us, but its worth remembering that nights can still be cold so start young cannabis seedlings indoors and only move outside when the risk of frost and gale has passed. Those of you not lucky enough to get our southern spanish summers, need to read our guide to cold climate cannabis!
Our indoor crop is fairly restricted at the moment to the ubiquitous Amnesia Haze but outdoors we love to grow a wide selection of strains. We’re going to try and keep offering a MultiPack Special Auto Deal as often as we can, and hope to augment this with a Pick & Mix selection box in the near future: you choose the size of box, and the mix of strains that go in it!
Talking of the MultiPack, here’s a picture sent in by one happy customer of his Blueberry Bliss at 6 1/2 weeks –
We’d really like to see pics of seeds bought from us / Kannaponica grown out – so please everyone send them in!
With the start of a new outdoor growing season comes a new look to the Growers Guide. We’ve tried to make it as similar to the old-style blog as possible, but hopefully its fresher and easier to use than before. The truth is, the old theme was outdated and we found ourselves spending more time replacing missing pictures and fixing broken links rather than writing the pieces we wanted to write about cannabis cultivation.
Here are some of the topics we intend covering this year:
- Roadside drug testing: can you smoke and drive? And if you do, how do you beat roadside tests?
- A report on our biggest grow off yet, with IWS watering system put against a NFT hydroponics system, and HID vs LED grow lights
- The definitive guide to Vaping
- Product Review: The Ultimate Plant Cage
- Bud Buddies’ “Project Storm” film
- Product Review: why we think the Homebox Evolution range make the best grow tents of 2015.
Coming Soon …

Getting the best from your cannabis seeds
So much joy/relief/relaxation all starts with a tiny seed. But how do you know which is the best cannabis strain to grow, where is the safest place to buy marijuana seeds online, and what method of germination gets the best results?

- The 20 Best Strains every cannabis grower should try at least once

Like owning your own pub!
Kannaponica, the grower’s guide’s own little grow shop has been open for just over a year now. Its great fun although convincing the local Spanish outdoor growers of the benefits of indoor weed with limited Spanish is a tough thing to do. Still the proof is in the pudding as they say and converts are fast being made. So much so that we have recently moved premises over the quiet winter season – photos to follow!
