Growing at home is amazing! If you already love your houseplants or garden it is a bit of a learning curve but so rewarding! Most people can accomplish it and you can use the flowers and trim to cook with and there are so many benefits. Juice leaves is a hot new trend but I have been doing it for ages! It is important to remember that not everyone is legally allow to grow marijuana in NY. Only medical certificate holders and caregivers are allow to grow mmj at home. I really love the other article about growing Blueberry strain. It is such a short growth height it makes for growing in side very convenient.
