Soil is the most traditional medium for growing marijuana indoors, as well as the most forgiving, making it a good choice for first-time growers. Any high-quality potting soil will work, as long as it doesn’t contain artificial extended release fertilizer—like Miracle Gro—which is unsuitable for growing good cannabis.

Inevitably, there will be fluctuations of temperature and humidity in your cannabis garden. These fluctuations can occur both throughout a grow space as well as within pockets inside a given room. They can also occur at different points within a given day or throughout a season as conditions change in the environment outside your grow space.
Finding the right soil for cannabis
As much fun as growing marijuana indoors is, having a home that perpetually smells like fresh weed can be a serious inconvenience, if not to you than possibly your neighbors. Although weed odor from a small indoor grow in a closet is much easier to manage than a large grow with several flowering plants, both can produce pesky odors that will permeate an entire home if left unattended.
Because the amount of light a plant receives is so important, you’ll need to make your indoor grow space light-tight. Light leaks during dark periods will confuse your plants and can cause them to produce male flowers or revert to a different stage.
Fans should be positioned to provide direct, even airflow throughout the garden. This typically involves using multiple fans that work together or fans that have oscillation capabilities.
What type of container you use will depend on the grow medium, the system, and the size of your plants.
Garages usually aren’t as well insulated as the rest of the house. Be sure to cover up any gaps and drafts that might spread the smell of your crop down the street. If you’re not using a grow tent, black out any windows—the sight of bright pink and blue LEDs will surely arouse suspicion if not covered up.
Don’t worry if you don’t have an attic, garage, or basement available. You can still achieve great yields in surprisingly small spaces. Use the principle of micro-growing to grow compact plants suitable for small converted cupboards, boxes, and buckets.
