Some varieties of marijuana
strains) prefer the lower side of the
variety, while others are more tolerant of greater
temperature levels. The size of your exhaust fan will
depend upon the size of your grow area and
amount of heat generated by your lighting
system. HID systems put out a lots of heat, especially if they
aren't installed in air-cooled hoods.

It's a good idea to set up
your lights, turn them on for a while, and then
identify how much airflow you'll require to maintain a comfortable temperature level for your plants. This will
permit you to choose an exhaust fan
ideal for your needs. If the
odor of marijuana plants in flower
will cause you problems, add a charcoal
filter to your exhaust fan.
Lastly, it's a good concept to
have a consistent light breeze in your grow
space as this reinforces your plants'
stems and creates a less congenial
environment for mold and flying bugs. A wall-mounted
flowing fan works well for this
purpose-- just do not point it
straight at your plants, since that can
While there are sophisticated (and pricey)
units offered that control
lights, temperature level, humidity, and CO2 levels, the
novice will usually
need an easy 24 hour timer for the
light and an adjustable thermostat switch for the exhaust fan. The
timing of the light/dark cycle is really
crucial when growing cannabis;
normally you will have your lights on for
16-20 hours per 24 hr duration while the plants remain in vegetative development, then switch to
12 hours of light per 24 when you want them to flower.
You can use a timer for your exhaust fan also,
however investing a few
extra dollars on a thermostat switch is a much better choice. With one of the most fundamental models,
you simply set the thermostat on the device to
the optimum wanted
temperature level for your space and plug your
exhaust fan into it.
This conserves energy and maintains a stable temperature
level. Since you're
most likely not investing most of your time in your grow area, a combination
hygrometer/thermostat with high/low memory feature can be
really handy in keeping
tabs on conditions in your space. These small,
inexpensive devices not

Marijuana chooses a pH in between 6 and 7
in soil, and between 5.5 and 6.5 in hydroponic media.
Letting the pH leave this variety can result in nutrition lockout,
meaning your plants are not
able to soak up the nutrients they require, so
make sure to evaluate your water and
soil frequently and ensure the nutrient mix you are feeding your plants falls within the
Here we'll take a look at the two most popular
methods and the media they employ.
Soil is the most traditional medium for growing
marijuana indoors, as well as the most forgiving, making it an excellent option for
newbie growers. Any high quality potting soil will
work, as long as it doesn't consist of
synthetic extended release fertilizer (like
Wonder Gro), which disagrees
for growing excellent cannabis.

This can be made yourself by combining worm castings, bat
guano, and other parts with an
excellent soil and letting it sit for a couple of weeks, or it
can be acquired pre-made from a few
different suppliers. Just like all organic
growing, this method relies on a healthy population of mycorrhizae and soil
bacteria to help with the conversion of
raw material into nutrients that are useable
to the plant.
Indoor growers are increasingly turning
to soilless, hydroponic
media for cultivating cannabis plants. This
approach requires feeding with
focused options of mineral salt
nutrients that are soaked up directly by
the roots through the process of osmosis. The
strategy for quicker nutrient uptake resulting in faster growth and bigger
yields, but it also requires a higher order of accuracy as plants are quicker to
react to over or underfeeding and are more
susceptible to nutrient burn and lockout.
(Courtesy of GroBox) Different
materials used include rockwool,
vermiculite, broadened clay pebbles, perlite, and coco coir,
just among others.
Business soilless blends are
widely readily available that
integrate 2 or more of these media to
develop an optimized growing mix.
Soilless media can be utilized in automated hydroponic setups or
in hand-watered individual containers.
A flood-and-drain, tray-style hydroponic system might
use small net pots filled with clay pebbles or
simply a big slab of rockwool to grow
many little plants, while a "super-soil" grow
might use 10 gallon nursery pots to grow a few big plants. Low-cost
alternatives include non
reusable perforated plastic bags or fabric bags, while some
choose to invest more on "clever
pots," containers that are developed to
improve air flow to the plant's root zone.
Drain is essential, however, as
marijuana plants are really
conscious water-logged conditions, so if you
repurpose other containers, be sure to drill
holes in the bottoms and set them in trays. Growing top
quality cannabis flowers requires more
fertilizer, or nutrients, than most typical crops. Your plant
needs the following primary nutrients
(jointly known as
macronutrients): Nitrogen (N) Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K) These
micronutrients are needed also, albeit in much
smaller sized quantities: Calcium Magnesium Iron
Copper If you aren't using a pre-fertilized
organic soil mix, you will need to feed your plants
at least once a week using
an appropriate nutrient option.
This is due to the fact that cannabis has
changing macronutrient requirements throughout its
lifecycle, needing more nitrogen during
vegetative development, and more phosphorus and potassium
throughout bud production. The majority of
macronutrients are offered in a two-part liquid to
aspects from precipitating
(combining into an inert solid that is unusable
by the plant), meaning you'll
need to buy 2 bottles (part A and
part B) for veg, and 2 bottles for grow, along with a bottle of micronutrients.
purchased the essential
nutrient products, just mix them with
water as directed by the label and water your plants with this
option. You need to
constantly begin at half-strength because marijuana plants are quickly burned.
It's often worse to
overfeed your plants than to underfeed them, and gradually you will learn to
"read" your plants for indications of
deficiencies or excesses.
Furthermore, some places
might have high levels of chlorine in the water supply, which can be harmful to
advantageous soil microorganisms.
For these factors, many individuals
pick to filter the water they use in their
gardens. The most crucial thing to bear in mind during this
phase is to not overwater. Cannabis plants are
very susceptible to fungal root
illness when conditions are too wet, and overwatering
is one of the most common errors made by
the beginning grower.
