Marijuana Planting

Cannabis Plant or Weed Plant has been accompanied by humanity for many millennia. Evidence of cannabis cultivation has already existed since the dawn of civilisation.

Hemp Cultivation In 7 Simple Steps

STEP 1: CHOOSE CANNABIS SEEDS

The choice available is extraordinary. Sativa, indica, ruderalis, every type of hybrid, all available in a simple click. You will already know what you like about your personal experience. Which varieties have been best suited to your mood and needs in the past? Which varieties provided adequate relief for your physical ailments? This is probably the right place to start. Keeping your taste in mind, start thinking about your growing conditions. Do you want to grow in a small closet where small and fast-ripening plants such as auto-flowering varieties or indica will be more suitable for confined space? Or do you have a beautiful garden where you can grow one or more large varieties directly in the ground or large pots?

STEP 2: BASIC NOTIONS ON CANNABIS

To cultivate the best and get the juiciest buds, you need to know that your beloved cannabis needs some key elements. LIGHT: For healthy vegetative growth, marijuana needs over twelve hours of light over a twenty-four hour period. CULTIVATION SOIL: Organic growers will use a specific type of terrain from time to time, indoors or outdoors. AIR: For a vigorous and adequate gas exchange, cannabis needs fresh air circulation. Outdoors this is not a problem, your plants will be exposed to breezes and storms. WATER: Like all living things, cannabis needs water to grow, prosper, and perform its biological functions. TEMPERATURE: Cannabis is a very resistant plant and can survive in hot and cold climates. Just like you and me, though, it can get stressed and not work correctly under extreme conditions. NUTRITIONAL SUBSTANCES: Like all living things, cannabis also needs nourishment to grow. HUMIDITY: Outdoors, you won't have control of this element, and you will be at the mercy of the climate.

STEP 3: LIGHTS FOR CANNABIS INDOOR CULTIVATION

Thanks to legalisation, there was a boom in the choice of lights and cultivation rooms to grow indoor cannabis. CULTIVATION CUPBOARDS: Developed thanks to decades of direct experience, cultivation cabinets are available that are fully adapted to cannabis cultivation and ready to use. LIGHTS FOR EVERY BUDGET: In contrast, you can get an initial set of compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL) or small LED panels (Light Emitting Diode), for less than three hundred euros. Other compact fluorescent lights like T5 linear lights are available in various power ranges for vegetative and flowering and are also suitable for tight spaces.

STEP 4: GERMINATION AND PLANS OF MARIJUANA

At the beginning of your adventure in cannabis cultivation, there is seed germination. Each seed contains all the information necessary to form the plant variety you have chosen. It only needs the right environmental conditions, and it will begin its life cycle. The seeds will not sprout until three specific goals have been achieved. Water, correct temperature (heat), and proper positioning. Cultivating cannabis is a natural process, without strict rules. It is not a linear system that simply needs to be learned, but an art to master with experience. There are various methods, all equally effective, for sprouting cannabis. Over time you will discover the method that is best for you.

STEP 5: THE CANNABIS VEGETATIVE PHASE

When the green leaves meet the light, real photosynthesis begins. The plant starts its metabolism, and the vegetative phase begins. INDOORS: The lights must be set to a regime of eighteen hours of light, and six hours of darkness. This is not necessarily coordinated with real day and night hours, and you can set the light / dark cycle as you prefer. OUTDOOR: Cannabis grows rapidly when daylight hours start to increase, in spring and summer. Unlimited space for roots and quality genetics will allow the plant to reach three or four meters in height during the vegetative phase.

STEP 6: THE FLOWERING STAGE IN A PLANT OF MARIJUANA SANA

Flowering is the last phase of growth of the marijuana plant. This will be an exciting time, full of aromas that begin to form. Interesting floral arrangements also begin to emerge, based on the variety being cultivated. The flowering phase has characteristic stages common to all cannabis plants and begins when the vegetative phase is finished. Outdoors, the first stage of flowering can be noticed when the summer heat comes to an end, and autumn is approaching. Indoors, you can control the start of the flowering phase by changing the lighting time, setting a photoperiod of twelve hours of light and twelve hours of darkness. Depending on the species, cannabis can flower in response to three possible characteristics. Depending on the species, cannabis reacts to hormonal changes, continuing in the vegetative phase or starting flowering.

STEP 7: COLLECTION, DRYING & TREATMENT FOR QUALITY GEMS

During the last few weeks, the nutrients are ignored, and your plant must be watered with pure water. This will guarantee a genuine taste of the buds, free of salty aftertaste or nutrients. When is cannabis ripe? Covered with abundant trichomes, the pistils begin to dry and change colour. Dark orange, mauve, brown or scarlet shades may emerge depending on the species. The swollen bags of resin begin to change colour on the whole plant. First, they pass from transparent to milky, and then they become amber. The groups of flowers are so swollen that they seem overturned. This signal indicates that it is time to collect the results of your hard work.
