    I'm working on a Master list of all the common questions asked by people when they either start a grow or experience problems during a grow.

    I'd like to use this thread to expand on the list and refine it. Then, we can all use the same questions to ask and we'll all get familiar with the information given.

    After each improvement, I can work on it until the last post in the thread will have a whole **** load of questions that can be asked as groups.

    I'll arrange it so all of the "Dirt" questions are in a block, etc. Then if someone does post without enough information, we can help them out with a common list of questions.

    Here's what there is so far:

    THE UNIVERSIAL QUESTION LIST

    This is a standard question list that you can use to help all of us, help you.

    Please answer each question that could apply to your grow. Put the answers below each question please.


    Please copy and paste this list into a saved file and use it to refer to when asking the group a question.


    Please post only the questions and answers that apply to your grow. This will make answering your question much easier.

    WHEN ANSWERING, PLEASE POST THE ENTIRE QUESTION AND ANSWER FOR EASE OF READING.
