Although growing outdoors has many advantages, climate has a large impact on the results. Our grow calendars remove the guesswork and give you the tools to plan out your outdoor grow properly.

Autoflowering cannabis plants are great for new growers and experts alike. Instead of flowering when days become shorter, they flower automatically after just a few weeks.

About ILGM

Hello! I’m Robert Bergman. I’m a marijuana growing enthusiast and the founder of ILGM. I’ve spent the last 25 years learning everything there is to know about growing marijuana. When I started growing I was in a home-based setup where 5-plants were all I had space to grow!

I’ve grown a lot since then (pun intended). I’ve run industrial-sized plantations and labs where we bred newer,

better, and more reliable strains. Then, after years of large-scale growing, I had an idea. I wanted to share my knowledge of growing weed-and I had a lot (nearly two decades worth). In that time I’ve dealt with every issue imaginable. Now it’s time to share everything I’ve learned through my Weed Grow Bible and I Love Growing Marijuana!
