Cheap Home Grow is pleased to have on the show this week Marc Emmelmann of Green Carpet Growing. Marc was kind enough to tell the audience about how a new grower should approach growing cannabis for the first time. Marc talked about the cost and what’s needed for your first grow. He stressed several times during the podcast to not always purchase the cheapest products because you’ll often be disappointed by your grows performance.

Marc also discussed his start-up company Green Carpet Growing. Green Carpet Growing wants to create a culture where anyone who’s interested can become knowledgeable about cultivating quality medical cannabis, not necessarily for themselves, but for their families and friends.
