It’s often said that there’s more than one way to skin a cat – something that rings true in a big way when it comes to weed cultivation. There are lots of ways of going about growing weed at home, of which every single one has the potential to produce seriously decent results. But at the same time, choice can sometimes be a curse in its own right – especially if you’re a newcomer with no real idea where to start.

On the plus side, there are really only two main approaches to growing you’ll need to decide between – hydroponics and soil. Suffice to say, soil growing doesn’t need much of an introduction – it’s basically just the usual method of growing plants in containers. And it’s the tried and tested approach favoured by millions, but hydroponics have also been gaining some serious traction over recent years all over the world.
