I am a bare amature grower.
My biggest obstacle besides lack of experience seems to be lack of privacy.
I want to go out and buy the equipment I'd need for a purely indoor setup but before I spend all that money, I want to be able to PRACTICE growing something with hydroponics, hopefully something with growth behavior and requirements as close to cannabis as possible.
Is there a 100% legal herb or vegetable that would be good PRACTICE to grow hydroponically before I went and spend good money on feminized seeds? I'm afraid that me buying all that equipment will trip all kinds of red flags with local law enforcement, I want to pretty much get the setup together and do practice crops in case cops or nosey meter readers get in my face my very first time.
Sorry for the rambling post but you get the idea.
