Right,

I'll be trying my hand at hydroponic. Will update with progress. Share you stories and progress here. It's legal now, so no need to hide any more :)

You have a strain in mind to start with?
Buying your seeds online locally or importing?

I planted a few on the plot a couple of months ago but it never came up. I still have a few, no idea what they are got it from a friend. Will start with those to dial in the Hydroponics and then get a really nice strain. I like the Uppers, not the sleepy crap. So will need to look into that strain.

Sounds like you're after Sativa. I saw seeds locally online a while back but they were crazy expensive - like R200 a seed or something. I'd love to get hold of some Purple Haze.

I know jack about growing but gonna do it anyway.
You can get seeds from the Netherlands: https://www.nirvanashop.com/
Or locally: https://www.cannabisseeds.co.za/

Get feminised or else you will throw away half of them when they mature (the males are of no use).
If growing outdoor out of season (season being from the spring equinox to autum) get autoflower seeds.
If out of season but indoors then you need lighting and timers to simulate summer.

Thanks.
I'm curious to know what peoples experience is buying seeds abroad - they get here ok?
Only did it once and it got here fine. Comes in a discreet envelope. Saturnz indicated that other people have lost shipments. So maybe better to get locally even though it costs double.
