Cultivation Tips For Healthy Plants

Tips For Healthy Cannabis Farming

Cannabis is quite a hardy plant, particularly in warmer environments. One of its most common nicknames is weed, after all, and this nickname comes from its ability to grow unattended on the side of roads. The tricky part of cannabis growing is the creation of dense, sticky, and potent flowers that most consumers are focused on. And to be clear, growing these is not actually all that difficult either once you know what you’re doing. Many people who take up cannabis gardening haven’t grown a single plant before they begin their weed journey, and they manage to cultivate flowers just fine with a little bit of trial and error. The most important inputs for cannabis plants are light, heat and humidity, airflow, water, and nutrients. How much variation in each of these a plant can handle often comes down to genetics. Plants with indica and ruderalis genes are more likely to resist mold, pests, and neglect. Cannabis grown in a strictly artificial environment with very little care for the health and happiness of the plants was the normal state of growing for quite a while, especially in the black market during the prohibition era when the need for secrecy and production streamlining trumped the desire for quality crops of environmental sustainability. Now that the market is diversifying, growers are better able to take advantage of organic gardening techniques without risking their crops. What follows are some helpful tips for people who want their plants to thrive, not just survive.

Organically Grown Cannabis

It’s common knowledge by now that cannabis grown in organic and living soil, without the use of pesticides or artificially fortified nutrients, makes for better tasting crops. Organic gardeners can charge a premium, sometimes up to double what other growers can charge, for buds that are both potent and delicious. Folk wisdom has people believe that organic cannabis will be less likely to give users an edgy effect, though this hasn’t been verified by scientific studies yet. When growing large amounts of cannabis, growing organically is definitely more expensive than using hydroponics and nutrient salts. Using a living, organic soil is just the beginning of this kind of growing. Using inputs like bat guano, worm castings, oyster shell flour, crustacean meal, neem meal, gypsum, kelp meal, and rock dust will help give plants all the macro and micronutrients they need without having to resort to bottles of heavily processed liquid fertilizers. This is in addition to organic soil additives like peat moss, coco coir, activated charcoal, perlite, and vermiculite that can greatly assist soil in staying aerated and well-drained. Some of these soil amendments are more ecologically friendly than others, so check out the environmentally friendly growing recommendations below for more information on how to make your crops not only organic, but biodynamic and ecologically sustainable. All of this stuff can get very expensive, and whether or not it’s the right move for you will depend on a number of extenuating factors. Organic tastes better, but it literally comes at a cost.
