Here's how to get rich from growing marijuana:

Build 3 chamber's out of plywood, one 8'x 10'x 7' high, one 4'x 6'x 6' high and 1 4'x 4'x 6'.
Put six 600 watt HPS in the large chamber, two 600 watt HPS in the medium chamber, and wall-to-wall flo's in the smallest one.

You'll also need a table top approx 3'x 4', hang four 40-watt flo tubes above the tabletop.

The smallest chamber holds approx. 6 donor ('mother') plants, in 5-gal. containers of soil.

The tabletop is where you root the clones you take off the donor plants.
The medium chamber is where the rooted clones veg for 3 weeks.
And the largest chamber is where the plants veg for 2 months.

Take 80 clones off the donor plants and root them in Oasis cubes.
Once rooted, put them in the medium chamber in two 2' x 4' ebb and flood trays.
After 3 weeks veg, they are ready to go into the flowering chamber. They should be approx. 15" tall by that time.

Choose the 64 best-looking plants and put them in the largest chamber, in four 4'x 4' ebb and flood trays, 2 on either side of a 2' wide aisle in the middle. At week 3 of 12/12, take more clones off the donor plants for the next crop. When the first 84 are done 5 weeks later, you'll have 64 more plants ready to go into flowering.

Every 2 months you'll harvest 80 oz.
That's 30 lbs/yr. At $3,500/lb. (wholesale price for quality ganja), that's over $100,000.00/yr. after overhead (elec. and nutrients). Do this for 10 years and you'll make a million bucks.

Notes:
-growing marijuana is currently illegal.
-Sales of marijuana is a serious offense.
-Selling that much marijuana (5 lbs. every 2 months) means you may have to deal with organized crime, and selling pot is WAY different than growing it.
-I'm not advocating you doing this. This post is for entertainment purposes ONLY.

Sure this thread isnt how to get attention and busted By the DEA?
anyone caught growing over 99 plants is subject to heavy penalties and mandatory federal sentances..
Watch your numbers if you follow this formula, Id say keep it under 40 clones per cycle.
We should not stop plant improvement programs and the use of hybrid strains. However, we should provide a reserve of genetic material in case it is required in the future. Breeders can only combat future problems by relying on primitive gene pools

alcohol is a modern invention, in comparison to mj. BUT alcohol, like the plethora of "over the counter" drugs are socially accepted.

Your absolutly right G.O.D. you dont see many people getting stoned going out in the car having a wreck & killing someone like drink-drivers do every day. The most dangerous a stoner gets is going to the store & buying the last of the milk & cookies.

Yes please legalize it so I can plant thousands of seeds at once.
So much easier to breed that way from what i hear. I dont have much experience growing 1,000 + fields- But im willing to learn If I have to teach myself.
Legaize it to free the breeders if nothing else.Save the enviroment- make paper and clothing from it. It all just makes way too much sense to me.
Where's the milk and cookies man?

Yes, growing it is only 1/3 of the process.
2nd is selling it, and I agree, an entirely different deal. That's conducting a criminal enterprize, and when you're dealing multiple lbs. you'll get involved with big-time crooks. 2 years ago a local grower got jacked for something like 6 lbs, the ppl. took the pot and sped off without paying, the grower and his friend chased after them in his truck. He started ramming the thieve's car from behind, lost control himself and ran into a ditch. The thieves stopped, came back while the grower & friend were trying to get their truck out of the ditch, and shot both of them, killing the grower and severly wounding his friend.

And the 3rd part of the equasion is laundering/hiding the $$$.
The gov't make get suspicious and do a little digging and ask you why is it that you have 2 new SUV's in the driveway and a house full of electronics yet don't have a job, or show any income from a legit source.
Income tax fraud baby, and they take away everything you have and send your ass off to a federal lock-up where you'll be cleaning toilets for 6 cents an hour for years.

Thats it ranger- we finally agreed on something.. Personally i think your O.K., just a little brash at times.....
Your alright by me though, for the record. Whether we agree or not....Ya know.

Buy old volkswagons and fix em up kids, dont get caught with the SUV in the driveway man.

your pricing is way off
if your growing that much weed you wouldnt sell a lb for 2500
I personally would sell a lb for around 1000 if I was growing that much

Prices vary by potency (and to a lesser extent flavor, aroma and appearance).
My pricing is NOT off, I'm telling you what lbs. of good Emerald Triangle pot currently go for, when selling 5 or so lbs. at a time.
Single lbs go for $4,000--$5,000.
Maybe you don't have any experience with primo organically grown well-cured N. California ganja.

Shit I remeber getting them in SD for 1,800, then 1,850, then they went up to 1,950
pretty soon a single pound was at 2250, jake 07 that was before camp helicopters, and the very early 80's... Come on inflation over the next 20 years or so.
2500 is a damn good price, 5 lot or not.

Not so magic mushroom.
People used to think so, because, to us humans, MH appears to resemble spring/summer sunlight.
But according to Ed Rosenthal, and a increasing # of growers, HPS equals or surpasses anything than MH can do, in ALL stages of a plants growth.

Once again I disagree as most will ,indoor horticultural studies have concluded the opposite of Ranger says or what Rosenthal says. MH's are better for veg.MH's have a balanced color spectrum with a higher % of blue /violet light rays then hps.Mh's are proven to keep plants shorter,stockier,and with more vegitation then will a hps in veg ever will.Stockier plants are stronger,better able to resist disease,and more productive then a plant using hps in veg.Hps are strong in the red/orange spectrum which is proven to promote flower production and stem elogation with stem elongation being a negitive to the indoor grower and therefore inferior to mh in veg,but the best for flower.If one does not have the $ for both lights then HPS is the best for both phases as hps has more to offer in veg then a MH does in flower.

Ed Rosental probably knows more about indoor marijuana cultivation than anyone who has ever lived.
Given adequate ventilation, HPS equals or outperforms MH.
The BEST single bulb to buy imo is a full-spectrum bulb (they make them for both MH & HPS ballasts).

I agree with ya on Rosenthal being one of the most experiened in the field and I agree with ya that full spectrum lighting is best with a combo of MH/HPS,but nowhere does he state hps is better then mh in veg.He does state if ya have one light a hps is the best all around. Given the resources a mh is better for veg regardless of what anyone says as blues are the primary spectrum needed for vegging plants which hps has little of.Show me the proof where ed says HPS is better in veg then MH,I have read all his books???Put your money where your mouth is; as by saying this conflicts with all scientific studies ever done on plant light spectrum needs.

OK, if you don't want to take my word for it, call another expert.

It was about 2 or 3 years ago after Ed R. did side-by-side comparisons (which I did about 10 years ago) and found out HPS out-performs MH, even for veg, as long as there is good ventilation (which all grow spaces should have).

P.S. I've been growing marijuana for a long time. Everything I post here is a result of personal experience--trial and error initially, later in a quest for knowledge. If I don't KNOW something from personal experience I'll state so in my posts.

Myths die hard. Take for example the post in another section of this forum where people claim they get high from smoking banana peels (nope). Or that hanging plants upside-down causes THC to migrate to the buds (nope), or that setting a jug of water/sugar/yeast in a grow room results in bigger buds (nope).
I was lucky enough back int the 90's to have multiple grow chambers. This allowed me to experiment with different techniques.
One of the first I tried was MH vs HPS lighting. When I first started growing indoors in the late 80's, I was told by and experienced knowledgable growers that HPS was better for veg than MH. But everything I read said no, MH for veg, HPS for flowering. So I did it that way.
I set up 3 indentical chambers. Same system (ebb and flood), same nutrients, clones from the same donor, but 1 with MH, 1 with HPS and 1 with full-spectrum. I checked several times/day.
I discovered that HPS out-performs MH, and is slightly better than a full-spectrum bulb (HPS produces more lumens per watt consumed).
The weed wasn't any better, but I got a faster growth rate with HPS.

This reminds me of an old thread. http://www.hipforums...93&page=1&pp=10 It turned into an arguing match. But anyway, I agree with ranger on everything except the light factor.
