Nutrients For Medical Marijuana

 

Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. 

These 3 ingredients are usually listed on the front label of the plant food in the order of N-P-K. A 20-20-20-plant food has a Nitrogen level of 20%.

Secondary nutrients are Calcium, Sulfur and Magnesium. In trace quantities, boron, copper, zinc, iron, and manganese.

Different nutrients are needed at different times. For rooting and germination, levels of high P nutrients with less N/K are needed. Vegetative growth needs lots of N a complete 20-20-20 with trace elements should do it. Watch for calcium, magnesium, sulfur and iron levels too. These are important. One tablespoon of dolomite or hydrated lime is used per gallon of growing medium. It is possible with passive hydroponics, to get nutrient build-up over several feedings, to the point the medium is over saturated in nutrients. Just feed straight water now and again, until you notice the plants are not as green (slightly), and then resume normal feeding.

Use weaker plant food mixtures than normal, maybe 25%, and be sure your leaching once a month and running straight water through the plants at least every other time you water. This applies mainly to plants grown in soil mediums.

Use of light strength Oxygen Plus plant food (or Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide) allows the roots to breath better and prevents problems with over-watering. Check soil to be sure there are no PH anomalies that might be due to Hydrogen Peroxide in the solution. (Be sure your medium has good drainage. At this point, if your watering soil based plants once a week, you can water every 3-5 days instead if you plant them in a medium with better drainage. Pearlite or lava rock will greatly increase the drainage of the medium and make watering necessary more often. This will pump the plants; they will tend to grow faster because of the enhanced oxygen to the roots. Make sure the plant medium is almost dry before watering again, as the plant grows faster this way.

Stop all plant food 2 weeks before harvesting, so that the plants do not taste like plant food. (This applies to hydroponics as well.)

WARNING: Do not over-fertilize. Always read the instructions for the fertilizer being used. Use 1/2 strength if adding to the water for all feedings in soil or hydroponics if you are unsure of what your plants can take. Build up slowly to higher concentrations of food over time. Novice soil growers tend to over-fertilize their plants. Mineral salts build up over time to higher levels of dissolved solids. Use straight water for one feeding in hydroponics if it is believed the buildup is getting too great. Leach plants in pots every month. If your plants look REALLY green, withhold food for a while to be sure they are not being over-fed.

Keeping Your Grow-Op Safe

Show no one! That is the first line of defense.

Once you show your grow op to someone they will tell some one else.

That’s a fact.

People want to feel important so in the middle of a conversation things slip that normally wouldn’t or shouldn’t.For this reason alone keep it zipped.

Now there is an exception to every rule.

You may require the help of a consultant if your having a problem with your grow. If your new to growing and your serious about your medication then having someone who can diagnose your plants and teach you about growing will be invaluable.

Keep the number of people who know your growing to a minimum and where your growing at top secret.

Spring Growing Problems

Soon old foes will soon be out of their winter refuge.

Creep and crawl they will, straight to your nice warm garden. Your garden being the most temperate climate, is prime for early infestation.

Keep an eye out for these intruders. It’s much easier to prevent an infestation rater than remove an invasive species.

I have sticky pads ready for the first catch of the year.

As a preventive maintenance you can spray your plants down with soapy water. A few drops of Ivory dish soap in a spray bottle filled with water is all you need.

Make sure to keep a clean grow room as bugs and other things can easily be overlooked under a pile of leaves left on the floor or some spilled dirt.

Do you want to grow more or better?

I’ll take better any day of the week.

Higher resin content, higher trichome production, higher THC levels and higher CBN levels all add up to better more potent medication.

Street grade marijuana will become a thing of the past. With today’s law reforms going on all over the states, breeders will be able to work openly with out the constraints of the past and produce new strains all the time.

We have healthier plants with faster growth and more vigorous seedling that have shorter flowering time or auto flowering, because of some hard working breeders.

What is to come from this little weed?

Keeping healthy plants.

What is a healthy plant?

My definition of a healthy plant is one that is growing at its optimal rate.

Growth cannot always be measured by height because a plant that stretches for light will grow tall but be weak. Rather, judge health by it’s over all appearance.

Healthy is: a nice bright green, thick, healthy leave, free of wilt and nutrient burn with new growth and close branch formation.

We all want our plants to grow big and strong with out any problems.

Less is more with water and fertilizers.

Co2 is hard to over do. Most people need more than they think.

Air circulation is very important. If the air doesn’t move over the surface of the leave then it is stifled in its ability to process Co2 into O2.

Take each grow on a day by day basis. If your a beginner or expert, problems can sneek up on you. Make sure your remedy is measured so you don’t end up with a new set of problems.

Everyone Thinks They Can Grow Medical Marijuana

Happy plants make happy people and happy people grow the best medicine.

So you think your ready to grow medical marijuana. Good for you.

If you have any background in gardening your plants will grow just fine.

But will they reach medical grade potency? That is up to you.

If your starting with good genetics, then your better off than most. Do you have the ideal environment to grow in?

Not everyone does, and that’s pretty important. A well thought out grow room can increase plant vigor and yield.

Controlling the humidity is important.

Without a properly sealed room humidity and other important aspects of growing like temperature and Co2 levels would be difficult to regulate.

With a proper grow room and a little bit of a green thumb you can say goodbye to buying meds forever.
