We call it “weed” for a reason—because it grows easily and anywhere, like a weed. That being said, there is one central aspect of growing a pot plant that everyone needs to understand, and that is that cannabis is a flowering plant, meaning that in nature it bears its fruits only once a year, during the fall season when the daylight hours grow shorter. When Marijuana seeds have fully sprouted after germinating special care should be taken. The weed seeds can be bought online from legal shops where weed seeds are for sale. Here are the things to take care of while growing marijuana –
- The right amount of light –
This is important for the people who grow the marijuana indoor because the light period of the plant must is controlled. The pot of plant must is placed in sunlight for more than 12 hours every day to keep the plant from flowering. You should not let the plant flowers immediately because if immature plant flowers too early there will not be much harvest to add. The young seeding must be grown for 4 to 6 weeks to keep it healthy and should get sunlight of up to 16 hrs.
- Horticultural Lighting –
The less intense the light, the less the plant will develop for this reason a lamp is used to give artificial light for faster and healthy growth of the plant. A 250-watt HID (high-intensity discharge) bulb—either an HPS (high-pressure sodium) or MH (metal halide) can be used for this purpose. Alternatively, if you do have a window with very good light and the power of the sun for a good portion of the day, you can also use fluorescent bulbs to supplement the sunlight after sunset.
- Triggering The Flower Cycle –
Now when you feel the plant has developed much and can produce enough flower for decent harvest, it is time to bring her light cycle to 12 hr of light and 12 hr of dark each day. You will have to keep using the lamp too during this period. At the dark period, special care should be taken that no light enters the enclosed space where the pot is placed. This will disrupt the plant flowering and cause stress or confuse the plant resulting in unproductive yield.
- Other Tips –
Other considerations for growing include the type of pots to be used. The best pot to be used is that of fabric. Other considerations include drainage holes in the pot. Special care should also be taken so that your plants do not sit in stagnant water for a very long time as the pH will change and eventually be redrawn by the medium and the plant. Siting water also attracts bugs.
Other than this, remember that this will take a long time to grow your perfect pot plant, but you should enjoy the process. This will also keep you connected to nature. To obtain a good quality of cannabis proper tips should be taken as this is a very delicate plant.
