Have you always wanted to grow weed indoors? Growing cannabis indoors in these days of technology is not a difficult task. There is a number of indoors growing kits that have made growing indoor plants easier than before. Keep reading this guide to know all you need to successful grow weed indoor.
A cannabis plant can grow in soil and also in a hydroponic system. If you love indoor plants but hate having dirt/soil in your house, hydroponic systems are the best option for you. With nutrients, air, and warmth, your cannabis plant will grow without soil. Growing in soil is the simplest since you won’t have to be mixing solutions. A single mistake such as high PH in the solution in hydroponics can kill your plant.
Growing in soil is the simplest but not the cheapest. If you opt to grow your plants in soil, you must use high-quality soil to get better results. Use quality soil with high nutritional value and proper drainage. Be careful when watering your cannabis plants as too much water can damage or kill them. Don’t give your plant too many nutrients as this might cause a nutrient burn and other defects.
The Grow Room
A cannabis plant does well in a room with an average temperature of 77F. Temperatures below 68F slow down your plant’s growth rate. Temperatures above 86F can kill your plant. For better performance, grow your cannabis plant in a room with efficient air supply.
Choosing Cannabis Seeds
A cannabis plant can either be female or male. Only the female cannabis plant is capable of giving you the buds you want. Buy feminized cannabis seeds from online cannabis seed banks, marijuana dispensaries, or online stores. Feminized cannabis seeds have a germination rate of 80% and above. They also give you 95% or above female plants.
Plant mature cannabis plants. Fresh cannabis seeds that aren’t grey won’t germinate. You can also buy cannabis seedlings if the germination stage is hard for you. When buying cannabis seedlings, make sure more 90% are female plants.
Every plant needs CO2 and light to make its food in the process known as photosynthesis. Growing plants indoors comes with added expenses. You need a lighting fixture to provide your plant with light. Plants that don’t get enough light supply have stunted growth.
If you are growing your cannabis plant in a grow tent, read the tent’s manufacturer’s recommendation for the best lighting option for you. Most HPS lamps range from 200 watts to 600 watts. The higher the power, the more light, and heat lighting fixtures emit.
There are some indoor grow kits that have made it easier for cannabis fans to grow it indoors. Some of the grow kits come installed with high quality LED lighting fixtures already installed. They are computerized to allow you to set the appropriate light intensity and temperature for the better performance of your plant.
