I’m a Beginner, Where Do I Start?

Posted by

So you’ve never had your own indoor garden, and you aren’t sure where to start. I was in the same boat as you not too long ago and needed someone to point me in the right direction. Good thing I knew where to get some answers!

I came into this industry due to my skills in a different field, but over time I’ve learned some of the basic needs for a successful indoor garden, which have helped me get up and running. More importantly though, I learned where to get the information I’d need.

Where Do I Begin?

Many of you may be newcomers to the indoor gardening field and most of you have little to no knowledge of where to get started. If you want my advice, start by hitting up your local Indoor Garden Supply store. For me, it was easy, since I already worked there.

The people who work at Urban Garden Supply truly are masters of their craft. Simply asking them “How do I get started?”, led me down a path of instructions, measurements and comparisons that I never would have expected.

I was able to learn first-hand, from those who know it best. I suggest you do the same.

Then What Do I Do?

Asking the guys at your local grow shop is a great place to start, but once you get the basics, you should focus on 

getting started. Getting down and dirty is really the best way to expand your education.

Many people will tell you that the only real way you can learn to do something, is to do it. After all, you can read about how to ride a bike, but actually getting on the bike is a whole different story. This holds true for indoor gardening as well.

Now don’t go reinventing the wheel. Take the knowledge you gained from your grow shop buddies, or online if you’ve chosen to research there, and put it into action.

As you get further along in your growing cycle, you’re sure to have questions and concerns when things don’t quite go as planned. This is where the real education starts.

Your leaves are yellow, you see a bug and you don’t know what it is, or you just didn’t get the quality you thought you would. What do you do next?

Things Aren’t Going As Planned!

It’s safe to assume that your first couple of grows will have some hiccups along the way. Don’t worry, it happens to all of us. But it’s time to figure out how to keep the same issues from happening next time.

This is where an online resource might be helpful. The Urban Garden Supply Blog is constantly being updated with new articles and techniques, usually inspired by questions from our customers. Take a look there to see if your issue has already been solved.

If you still need some help, or don’t have much time for reading, head back to Urban Garden Supply to speak with one of the experts there. Chances are pretty good that they’ve helped someone through it before.
