Has anyone used the CCi book? Is it worth $225

I read a small section of the CCi book for free and I was amazed by direct details, exact amounts of nutrients, what soils or dwc or coco and how to process them broken down into very easy steps. So, I went to purchase the book, I went to the site and happy to see a %10 discount! Woohoo. And then I saw the price… $221 AFTER DISCOUNT, for a paper back book that they want you to download and not even receive, I’m not positive but I think for physical copy it’s full price.
Has anyone followed this book? Is this outrageous price actually worth it?
The selling points for me 1. A step by step guide from 1 person that breaks down every single step including trouble shooting 2. Educating myself further on a subject I take interest in and have invest alot of money into 3. Learning new and better ways to care for my plants, increase yields, stop wasting material or buying stuff that’s not needed

I just don’t know if it would be worth the investment for a small timer like myself. It doesn’t say if the advice given is for home growers or commercial type or both. The small sections I have been able to read for free were jam packed with great information on clones, how to set them up and get going etc. That’s why I am reaching out to anyone who has read the book, in their opinion was it worth so much $$$

We live in the age of information. It’s free and widely available across the internet.

220$ seems like a get rich quick scheme to me.

The absolute best way to obtain information is by doing and failing. No book can provide that. It has all the answers. The real learning is in failure.

I second this…

Also gotta agree with @peachfuzz on this. Learn to use the site and all the info you could ever need is right here. If you really want a good book there’s plenty out there for cheaper. My library has a bunch of solid growing books (both regular gardening and cannabis) so you could always check out your local library. Also the ilgm guide is pretty solid for general info.

But this forum will give you all the info you need. Good luck growing!!!

It sounds good but there are free books available from ILGM and live experience from growers who have learned from personal experience and I think that knowledge can’t have a price put on it. Good luck on your decision…

This forum definitely has a mass of Information. I try to take all the advice and apply it as best as I can. Sometimes it works brilliantly and sometimes it doesn’t. I was having a leaf issue and a gentleman recommended an inline filter for outdoor hose, man let me tell you… That filter saved my plants. I added the filter and a bubbler and they took off. They were getting to much chlorine from tap, so successful grows definitely come by reading more and learning as I go

It’s definitely worth getting your hands dirty. Even commercial level, super scientific growers hit their speed bumps.

Not sure everything in there would apply to what your experience might be…. If I may, I would suggest leveraging the community here to strengthen your grow.

I would start by asking folks about your set up, then your medium, then your feeding plan. From there if issues pop up, you could ask for help.

Its free and everyone shares your interest, so you find a lot of folks keen to help…bonus is you can spend the 225 on extra stuff to help you grow rather than paper for your composting after round one. :grin:
