Here are some tips to help you understand how to grow marijuana indoors.
Avoid using clones; grow from seeds
One of the drawbacks of starting with clones is that it can inconvenience the entire growing process.
Clones will transmit all the pests, diseases, and genetic weaknesses of the mother plant into your crop. In addition, clones are often shipped by mail and often arrive in a state of shock. This may add two to three weeks to your growing process in case they survive the mailing rigors.
Be sure to plant feminized seeds
Many growers start growing cannabis with the best of preparation and planning only to realize, much later, that they had planted crops of male plants because they were not certain about the seeds they had planted.
Have adequate space with enough lighting and ventilation
If you plan to undertake indoor growing of weed, take some time to prepare the space you will use to grow your cannabis.
Make sure your grow space is properly sealed to prevent light and odor from escaping.
Avoid using fertilizers and boosters
Feeding your weed on excessive amounts of fertilizers and boosters may lead to root burn. Too much fertilizers and boosters may lead damaged leaves and weak plants that cannot process light properly. This is one of the main reasons why experienced growers take the time to prepare their soil in advance.
Grow on good soil
Grow your cannabis on good quality organic soil to supply your plants with all the nutrients they need to grow healthy.
Well-prepared soil requires minimal irrigation and amendments.
However, you may need to do a few amendments towards the end of your crops’ growth cycles.
Control your grow environment
For growing the best weed, always give your cannabis an easy start during the germination stage of their growth cycles. This involves starting your marijuana seeds in a controlled environment. Make sure each seed is planted in a small seed-starter pot to allow you to start as many seeds as possible in a small space and maintain control of the environment of your baby crop. In addition, make sure the pots can maintain even warmth and moisture to encourage your crops to sprout.
Maintain proper pH levels
Make sure the water and soil in your grow room have the required pH levels. The best weed does well in moderately acidic conditions with pH levels of between 5.5 and 6.5. Make sure that the pH levels of the water you intend to use on the plants is about 6.0. Monitor the pH levels of your soil and water regularly because pH levels will change as your plants metabolize nutrients.
Prepare your grow area on time
It is advisable to start preparing your soil in fall before intended season of growth because winter rain and snow will help with soil metabolism and make it easy for amendments to be properly incorporated into the soil. Retest the pH levels of your soil to determine if it requires additional amendments.
Time your harvest accurately
It is important to harvest your plants at the right time. One of the most notable signs of mature cannabis is the transformation of the hair-like pistils from white to rust-red or brown. Consider harvesting a few buds as your crops mature through their various stages to determine their most favorable outcome. White pistils will give you more of a “head high” with the effects becoming more “stony” as THC levels in the buds increase.
Master the basics of curing and drying
Make sure your buds are properly dried and cured. Curing cannabis helps to change the sugar and chlorophyll content of the buds to bring out a more mellow taste.
Learning how to grow the best weed will help you get the really good stuff; the kind of stuff that will knock your socks off. It will help you get quality buds that your friends will brag about or warn their friends about.
