For whatever reason, the general opinion is that growing pot is expensive and complicated. We are here to change that notion. The truth is, it’s called weed for a reason and we want every gardener to grow it as though it were another garden variety. It is an amazing plant to share space with. It may have even been humanity's first companion plant. Not many plants grow as vigorously, express such a variety of smells, display so many different shades of the rainbow, or heal the body while calming the brain.
What You Need to Grow Weed Indoors and On a Budget
Those are the bare bones of growing weed cheap! There are several other accessories you can use to help produce the best yield possible and aid with clean-up, including a watering can, fabric grow pot, saucer, and natural leaf shine. This can be an expensive toolkit to put together on your own. To save money, you can check out our Complete Grow Kits at A Pot for Pot. They have everything you need to grow and you won’t have to take care of shipping costs from multiple websites.
But let’s talk about the most important elements - light and soil, and how nutrients can further enhance your soil.
The Importance of Grow Lights for Cannabis Cultivation
The more light you have the bigger your yield is going to be. Think of it as the engine, the bigger it is the faster you can go. While lighting for cannabis is a highly debated subject, our team at A Pot for Pot believes that the best form of light for your plants is the sun. First and foremost, it is a giant fireball in the sky that is free! Not to mention it is a true full spectrum light source that the plant evolved to grow under.
A sunny window with 4 hours of direct sun will grow a couple baggies. With full sun all day, you will send your yields through the roof. But having too much pot has never been a problem. If you live in a house that gets very little direct sunlight, you can always supplement with a natural spectrum COB LED grow light. These lights are affordable to buy, have low energy costs, and emit a natural spectrum of light that can proudly sit over your cannabis plant in the corner of your living room.

Ensure You're Working With Good Cannabis Soil
The better the soil and the more light you have, the better your plants will grow. We tailored a Pot for Pot to include everything you need to go from seed to harvesting your own organic flowers, at a price that won’t leave you stressing over the thing that’s supposed to relax you. To make it easy, we blend over 18 different ingredients into our Superb Soil so that it provides all the nutrients needed to go from a seed or clone into a beautiful budding plant.
Thanks to Plant Success Organics, we are also able to include their Great White Mycorrhizae and Mycos Chum Nutrients. Their premium beneficial bacteria & trichoderma work in symbiosis with your plant's roots to break the soil down and maximize your plant's nutrient uptake. Over 10 years, I have grown in everything, and at the end of the day, nothing beats the smell and taste of naturally soil grown cannabis.
All you need is a head on your shoulders and a dash of motivation. What you don’t need is a grow room, a grow light, or even a green thumb. With just a bit of sun you can enjoy the journey of harvesting your own home grown. The truth is, if you are one of those people who kill plants, that’s just because you never had a plant worth caring about. By using our kit combined with auto-flowering cannabis seeds, all you need to do is add water, sunshine, and a little love.
Growing Marijuana Without Nutrients
It’s possible to grow marijuana without nutrients, but it’s definitely not advisable. Growing cannabis requires very specific environmental conditions, and it’s highly unlikely that your backyard soil or any soil that you buy from the store meets these conditions as is. They’re not your typical houseplant, and a traditional N-P-K fertilizer is not enough. The leaves will start to yellow, and your yields will be very low.
That’s why our all-in-one Complete Pot Grow Kit comes with Superb Soil, Beneficial Bacteria , Aeration Top Soil Mix, Coco Brick, and Rooting Booster. The Aeration Top Soil Mix helps to regulate both air and moisture. Meanwhile, the rooting booster makes sure all those nutrients get to the roots to make them healthy and strong.
Cheapest Indoor Grow Setup
The cheapest indoor grow setup can be as simple as this - an LED grow light hanging above your cannabis in a fabric pot, allowing your plant to breathe and preventing overwatering. The fabric pot sits in a saucer to collect runoff water. You don’t have to create a special room or space for your cannabis plant, since these materials fit easily in any living space and the light can be hung from the ceiling. A little bit of natural sunlight can enhance the effects of your LED grow light.
We also recommend protecting your cannabis plant from pests and mites. To do this, you can use diatomaceous earth for your soil and natural leaf shine for your leaves.
So what’s the cheapest way to get all this? Our Complete Pot Grow Kit. Once you have this, your grow lights and your cannabis seeds, you’re ready to go. Our kit has everything you need to set up your grow space and keep your soil enriched, plus scissors, a smartphone camera magnifier, and a watering can to aid the cultivation and harvesting process. It even includes a $40 coupon to help you save on seeds!
