Let me start off this post by referring to "Swim." "Swim" was wondering how easy growing really is for the average human being. "Swim" has always had a fantasy of this secret grow room. "Swim" has done his research."Swim" is currently using a secured vpn on a third party computer so no-one is tracking swim, nor is it possible from this post. With that said, "Swim" is an Entrepreneur at heart. He's a business man, owning a business. He works with plants on a daily basis, doing landscaping, planting, turf management and so on. Swim has extensive knowledge in soil biology, adjusting nutrient or npk levels, testing soil pH, and let's just say advanced skills in gardening by the book. On the side from Swim's business, swim has been selling medical doses to a handful of patients for over 5 years. While selling on the side is lucrative, it's not as lucrative as if swim were growing. Swim doesn't like making sells and dealing with lots of people because of traffic and law enforcement. In other words, swim thinks he would make more money by building a secret grow room where no-one knows where. Meaning swim self supplies his self, and deals with many less people. Swim has common and advanced street knowledge, that goes really deep. Swim understands electricity or power usage, low-key, tell no-body rules. Swim would like to know if anyone has found it worthwhile or more lucrative to make the transition to planting seedings. Swim would also like to know from someone who started with scratch knowledge, is it as simple as germinating a seed and watching it grow as a newbie? Swim thinks he would be a master, considering his advanced background in plants and soil biology. Swim really just wants reassurance that it can be done for a beginner, and can be done safely. Swim is considering starting small, possibly (4) 750 watt Gavitas, an 18,000 btu window unit, in a discreet building with no neighbors or surrounding people. Is it really as simple as its made out to be? Swim really wants to know.
