Trivia

Most of the Marijuana Plants inside the house are fake. They came in large boxes, all completely disassembled. The crew did not have enough time to put them all together, so one of the crew members took the pieces to a retirement home where the seniors happily spent the time putting together the plants.

Growing Up in a Grow Op - Fun, Funny, Touching, Endearing
6 September 2009 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Growing Op" is about a teenager named Quinn struggling with growing up, dealing with his parents, meeting girls and trying to fit-in in high school - and this is on top of living in a marijuana grow house, being home-schooled by his mother and not actually knowing any kids his age. (As Dad said to Quinn: "You can use the internet, its perfect for social exiles like yourself").

The cast was fantastic and Quinn was the perfect lead character. You really believe in him and you want him to succeed. It was funny, fun, and the perfect coming-of-age story. I recommend it to everyone. Whether you enjoy teenage growing up stories or not, you will enjoy Quinn's.
