Whether or not you have a green thumb, growing marijuana can be a challenge. If you want to grow your own indoor marijuana plant, you might encounter some trouble. These tips can help you have a successful grow, regardless of the color of your thumb.
- Do your research
Before you can even consider growing marijuana, do some research. First, you should find out if it’s legal to grow it in your state. If it’s not, you may also want to research the consequences of getting caught with a marijuana plant.
You should also research growing practices. There are some great resources out there. Check out plantsily.com/ for detailed steps on how to successfully grow indoors. Learn everything about growing it; there’s a lot to learn. By educating yourself, you can save yourself the stress of many unsuccessful attempts.
- Be clean
Marijuana plants are susceptible to disease. You want to do everything you can to prevent the spread of diseases. And that means being clean. You should wash your hands before you handle any plants. Be sure to keep all your tools and the surrounding environment clean as well. The cleaner the area, the less likely it is that bugs and diseases can take over.
- Use good soil and seeds
Without the right soil and the right seeds, your plants won’t grow well. Or, the results might be disappointing. When you’re shopping for soil, don’t skimp. Look for a high-quality soil that has a pH balance in the 6.5 range.
The seeds matter too. Bad seeds might not grow, or they might result in low quality cannabis. Don’t buy the cheapest seeds you can find. Instead, do your research and buy from a reputable source. Quality seeds make for some quality cannabis.
- Don’t overdo it
We get it. You’re excited about growing your very own marijuana plant. But don’t let your enthusiasm get the best of you. Many novices use too much water and too much fertilizer. This can destroy your plant. Everything should be done in moderation. Only water your plant if there’s no moisture about three inches under the surface of the soil. And when you do water it, don’t drown the plant.
As far as fertilizer goes, the same is true. You don’t want to overdo it. If your soil contains the nutrients your plant needs, don’t add more to the water. And you should be aware of what nutrients your plants need throughout the growth cycle. The flowering stage uses up different nutrients than the vegetative stage.
- Consistency is key
Marijuana plants thrive in a consistent environment. Do what you need to in order to keep the humidity, temperature and air circulation stable. Try to keep your own attention to the plants on a schedule as well. Care for them at the same time every day.
These aren’t the only things you need to do to have a successful grow. But it’s a good start. If you’re thorough, attentive, and smart about growing, you can have great success. And the results are well worth the effort.
