Growing marijuana is a great hobby, but growing superior weed is an art. If you want to create amazing harvests, you’ll need to learn and practice some techniques that put your cannabis above the rest.
None of these tips are terribly difficult to master, but if you don’t know about them, you may not be doing them. We’ve put together five of the best tips from master growers that will help you get the most yield, highest quality bud, and the best high.
- All things in moderation
This tip applies to growing marijuana.
You can overdo it by doing thigs such as over-watering and over-feeding it. That’s why every master grower will tell you – it’s much better to have too little rather than the other way around. This is because too little is way easier to fix than too much.
This is especially true if you are growing a strain that you haven’t worked with before. Not all marijuana strains are the same, and many have unique growing needs.
- pH should not be ignored
Many hobby growers underestimate the importance of pH.
This is bad because pH affects how well your plant absorbs nutrients. It also helps create a nurturing environment for helpful micro-organisms that make it easier for your plant. When you ignore a bad pH level, you make it harder for your plant to do its job.
Thankfully, monitoring the pH level of your plant’s soil is easy. Simply invest in a pH monitor and check it regularly. Marijuana plants do best in soil that has a pH of around 6.
- Genetics Matter
You can’t expect to grow great weed if you don’t start with good seeds.
Sure, marijuana is one of the easiest things to grow, but you are not trying to grow just any marijuana, you are trying to grow the best. That’s why it is so important to start with great seeds that have been carefully tended to so that they will grow into the best plants.
Finding the right seeds used to be difficult. Nowadays it’s as easy as going over to I Love Growing Marijuana. We select the best seeds for growing superior weed.
- Prune like a pro
Pruning isn’t just for hedges, my friend.
Pruning is what separates the newbies from the pros. It is a technique that removes weaker branches so that your plant can focus on its buds. The best marijuana has been carefully pruned to grow the densest buds and deliver the highest potency.
While pruning is an advanced technique, it is something worth learning because it makes a huge difference in the quality of your weed.
- Study Up
Growing marijuana may come naturally to some, but being an expert takes education.
Years ago, it was much harder to grow high-quality weed. To do it, you needed to know someone who knew what they were doing, or you needed to know where to look to find the information. Now, thanks to the Internet, there is a wealth of growing information online. Don’t be afraid to use it!
If you want to grow the best weed, you should spend as much time as possible learning everything you can about it. One great place to start is on the I Love Growing Marijuana forum, where expert growers share some of their tips and tricks. Even if you don’t agree with what everyone else is saying, you’re sure to learn something that will help you get better at it.
