Like any plant, the growth and cultivation of weed is affected by the conditions in which the environment is. Regardless of whether it is planted indoors or outdoors, the guidelines to follow to plant cannabis are dictated by Mother Nature; that is to say that to carry out any process related to its evolution, all the external factors that surround it must be analyzed and, in this way, the necessary information to know how to cultivate weed correctly will be obtained.
The first step is to inform yourself. Before carrying out this work, it is important to know what we are facing and what we are working with; for this, there are several books and webpages on the internet to explain how to grow marijuana in the best way. It is equally significant to know the steps to follow and discover tips that are useful for the process we want to perform based on the materials we have and the conditions of the environment in which we operate.
To cultivate cannabis, one of the main factors to consider is its good genetics. It means that you must choose with intelligence from where to start. Many people opt for a seed bank but not all of them are within reach of one, the latter prefer to take a part of the stem of an existing plant to grow their own, for this reason and to obtain a good harvest, you must take advantage of one that already gave good weed.
Lighting is another determining point. When being under roof and not receiving contact of the rays of the sun, electrical boxes of illumination that allow the plant to exert their processes of evolution, feeding and natural growth must be installed. It is known that marijuana plants require about 600 W of HPS light per square meter to flower properly, so it is recommended to install specially designed spotlights to follow these measures.
You should also choose a good fertilizer. For novices, it is advisable to use organic fertilizers since these are softer and reduce the risk of overfertilizing the crop. In addition to this, it is very important to adjust the PH levels of the soil since a mismatch in the levels of acidity can have a negative impact on the development of its properties. It is advisable to use PH regulators to maintain their values between 5.8 and 6.3.
The amount of water must be exact. Watering with too much water can be harmful to the plant, and doing so with little water can also dry it. To know how marijuana should be watered, it is important to know its size as well as the climatic conditions in which it is growing, for example, a larger plant in a hot place will need more water than a small plant in a humid place.
It is strictly necessary to ventilate the cultivation space since the plants need continuous fresh air to flower. This is intimately linked to carbon dioxide, which is a fundamental element in photosynthesis and runs out if the air is not constantly renewed. In addition, this point directly influences the temperature, which is advisable to keep close to 25 degrees to favor the good evolution of the harvest.
Finally, it should be remembered that, as in any crop, it is necessary to follow specific maintenance guidelines such as pest and cut control. Thus, in this way, a successful planting within the home can be achieved.
