Do You Know Any Cannabis Know-it-alls?

Ok, so I work with a couple guys who've grown in the past. One grew outdoors for personal use and the other grew large-scale indoors for, let's say, other than personal use. One is completely convinced that if I don't follow his word to the letter, I'm doomed to failure (and he swears up and down that it's impossible to produce feminized seeds and that there's no such thing as C. ruderalis), and the other is trying to convince me that my way (small micro-grow in a kitchen alcove) is way too small and I have to go at it on a larger scale. When I try to explain what I'm doing I get cut off in mid-sentence and have to listen to stuff that don't make any logical sense (I've studied biology in university) or stuff that is over my head as far as growing goes.

As I'm a new grower I'm content to start small and learn from my mistakes. Anybody else know people like that? I guess I should have kept my trap shut.

I'm also a first time grower but it sounds to me like there's definitely more than one way to skin a cat, so to speak, when it comes to growing weed. Honestly, I started with growweedeasy.com, read over all their material, then went to forums and started learning what I could. I say I'm a first time grower but I did actually successfully harvest a female plant in my back yard last summer. I didn't really tend to it as I didn't want to draw attention to what I was doing, but I ended up with about a half oz with absolutely zero effort and no additional watering.. we had a draught last summer, too.

With regards to the small micro-grow - you and I are in a similar boat. You actually have more space than I do (I'm at 20"x17"x45" interior dimensions) but I'm doing hydro and only one or two plants, max. As long as you have light and nutrients, you should get a yield. I went with a dimmable 300w LED setup so I can adjust the intensity once the plants are at full growth. I'm hoping my LST keeps them short enough but very full.

I'm not sure what to expect with regards to a yield, but my goal is between 4oz and 8oz. Next grow will be from clone of the WW so things should move along a little more quickly. Do you have any idea what you were expecting, as far as a yield?

I have never run into people like that on this topic, but on just about every topic in life. Some people are close minded and egotistical. You could grow in a shoebox, if that what pleases you. It doesn't matter. Work with what you have.
