Learning how to grow weed isn’t hard. So don’t trip. It just takes practice and patience. Smoke a joint and you’ll have plenty of patience. The more you grow the more you’ll know too. Dive in, dude, experience is right around the corner. There’s a reason why stoners call it weed in the first place, man. That’s because marijuana is a really hearty plant. And like a weed marijuana grows easily just about anywhere. That’s great. But one of the fundamental things to understand about how to grow marijuana is that weed plants are flowering plants. That means weed plants bear fruit only once during a year. That’s why weed plants are harvested every fall as daylight diminishes.
How to grow weed indoors
Growing cannabis indoors, dude. We’ll teach you. A weed plant begins to flower as daylight hours diminish, right? So that means if you want to grow a weed plant inside all you have to do to get it to start budding is change the light schedule. Simple, right? Having the ability to change the light schedule or photoperiod is one of the benefits of growing cannabis indoors. It’s also a lot easier to control temperature and humidity when growing weed indoors as well. Managing pests is a lot easier too when growing marijuana indoors as opposed toout in the wild. Anyhow to get your pot plant to bud simply change your light schedule to 12 hours on and 12 hours off.
Of course you might want to get some HID lights (high-intensity discharge lights) if you want to grow cannabis that’s of connoisseur quality. HID lights—either an HPS (high-pressure sodium) or MH (metal halide)—can be expensive but worth the investment if you’re serious about growing weed. Might as well if you’re going to put the time and effort into learning how to grow weed, right?
If you’re looking to grow just one pot plant at home you have quite a few lighting options. A 250-watt HID light bulb can be found online for like 20 bucks. However HID light bulbs do require a specialized HID Reflector and a ballast. You can’t just screw HID lights into a standard home fixture. Of course you can get an HID kit that has everything. HID light kits may run as much as $200. But your first harvest will pay you back, dude. Promise.
While the plants are in the dark cycle it’s critical that they don’t get any light. A single drop of light will fuck up your flowering weed plants. It happens all the time. Light leaks during the dark cycle, no matter how small, will disrupt your pot plant’s flowering stressing and confusing the plant. A lot of times your female pot plant will turn into a hermaphrodite. That means your flowing weed plant is now both a female and a male. And you’ll get not only seeds, but really shitty weed. Plus those seeds will likely turn out to be hermies themselves. Moral? Try not to ever expose your growing cannabis to light during the dark cycle.
Marijuana Delivery is Stuff Stoners Like
Pineapple Express review
Bigger the root. Bigger the fruit.
Why not just start off a seedling, clone or baby weed plant under a 12/12 lighting schedule? You could. Technically a baby weed plant or a small pot plant will flower. But the smaller the pot plant the smaller the harvest. So why not just let your pot plant grow or vegetate until it becomes a nice sized-bush? A big weed plant with a huge root mass will deliver a lot more bud.
To keep a pot plant in vegetation it needs a minimum of 16 hours of light. You could even get away with constant light if you needed. But that’s slow down the growth of your weed plants. Fluorescent bulbs such as T5’s, T8’s or even CFL’s can emit enough light to keep your pot plant in a vegetative state.
Good luck on your next growing pot project. Marijuana growing is fun, rewarding and easy. Like we said, don’t trip.
