Here are some tips to get your weed garden ready.
Selecting the strain of marijuana that will be grown can be complicated, as there are hundreds of different strains, each with their own pros and cons. The key is to select a strain that is appealing according to length of time to maturity, potency, and ease of growth. Some strains are finicky, so they should not be used as a first crop.
Proper Grow Areas are Vital
Selecting a growing area can be tough to do but the first step is to choose a clean area to start a crop. Find a spot with low amounts of dust, as the particles carry pests. For indoor growing, both the plant and the lamp used for lighting will require vertical space, so there will need to be about 6 feet of clearance. The lamp must be kept a certain distance from the top of the plant to prevent the lamp from burning the tips of the plants.
Plants Need Space
Marijuana requires a large footprint to grow in. Each plant requires 4 square feet (2 feet x 2 feet) of growing space. If the plants are placed closer than this, the limbs of each plant will block the light of the other plants, leading to an unhealthy crop.
There Are Different Ways to Grow
There are many different techniques to grow marijuana hydroponically. However, there is much to consider before choosing one and many growers may do best to experiment to see which of the following works best with their skillset. Below are a few examples of cultivating options.
Ebb and Flood – This method consists of taking a plastic container and filling it with pea gravel. Next, flood the pea gravel with nutrient solution until the reservoir is full. Drain the nutrient solution out of the reservoir. The nutrient solution left over between the pea gravel will nourish the roots. Do this several times a day.
Nutrient Solution Makes a Difference
Finding one nutrient solution that covers all the plants’ nutritional needs is a tall task. The norm is to find a nutrient solution that covers as many of the essential chemicals required by the plant and adding a secondary nutrient source tailored to the three basic growth cycles marijuana grows through to become a mature plant.
Understanding pH & PPM is Important
The pH of the nutrient solution refers to how acidic or how alkaline the nutrient solution is. Knowing how to understand and measure pH is an important skill that will improve the health of a crop? Marijuana likes a pH of about 5.5, which is slightly acidic. PPM (Parts Per Million) refers to the potency of the nutrient solution. The required PPM of the nutrient solution depends on the nutrient type that will be used. Find the recommended PPM for fast growing leafy plants on the container the raw nutrient comes in.
It Takes Lots of Power
The few power outlets found around the house are not going to cut it, as a 1000-watt lamp is the standard for a grow operation. Most residential circuits will blow the power breaker if you plug in two 1000-watt lamps into the same outlet, as the limit for most residential power outlets is 1500 watts. Trying to pull 2000 watts out of this circuit just will not work. Even if only one 1000-watt lamp is being used, the other electronics you will need for the grow ops such as fans and pumps will still overwhelm one circuit.
Marijuana has an extraordinarily strong odour to it, especially in the budding stage. This odour can fill whatever building it is being grown in. Combat this with a hepa filter on a fan vented to the out of doors drawn directly from the growing area.
With all these tips for growing now you are ready to start your own cannabis garden.
