Females can weigh twice as much as males when they are fully mature. The cool thing about cultivating cannabis outdoors is that you save tons of money on lighting – natural sunlight is available year round and is free! And outdoor plants do not require ventilation systems. Outdoor growing can be…

    Marijuana Hydroponically Growing Guide

    Growing marijuana hydroponically is method of growing cannabis plants without soil. The plants get fed by soluble fertilizers that are dissolved in water. Hydroponic gardening can be more productive than soil growing, but it is not nearly as forgiving. Soil works as a buffer for nutrients and holds on to them longer than a hydroponic grow medium does. Hydroponic grow mediums contain no nutrients – all the nutrients are supplied via a nutrient solution. Contrary to popular belief, hydroponic gardens often require more care than soil gardens. Because the plants grow faster, there are more things to check and way more things that can go wrong. How it basically works…

    Marijuana Introduction to Cloning 2019 Guide

    Cannabis can be reproduced asexually or sexually. Asexual propagation is what is known as “taking cuttings” or “cloning”. Many growers take advantage of this awesome process known as cloning. Simply stated, the cloning process is when growth shoots or branches are removed from chosen donor plants and induced to form roots in a separate grow medium. By taking cuttings from a mother, every single clone will be a guaranteed female plant. A garden can be perpetuated indefinitely by taking cuttings before plants begin to flower. Cloning offers growers many benefits. For one it allows them to have a constant supply of female plants – by using clones, a grower has…

Next, seed leaves emerge out from within the shell as they search upward in search of light. Soon after a seedling is formed. Regular mineralized spring water contains all the nutrients a seed needs in order to germinate properly. Once the seeds sprout fertilizer is then added 2-4…

    Marijuana plants love light, and LOTS of it. Lighting is one of, if not the most essential ingredient needed for a quick, highyielding crop. Your lights may very well be your single greatest expense, but very well worth the investment. Maximizing light distribution to your plants will enhance photosynthesis tremendously.
