Cannabis growing problems and solutions

As a very general and unscientific rule, a new grower who doesn’t run into major problems can expect…

Just remember; how you react to problems determines whether you harvest tons of potent buds… or end up totally killing your plants. The way you react to problems is a strong reflection of your ability as a grower. Anyone who stays calm and is willing to search for a solution (instead of giving up) is on their way to becoming a true master grower.

Use caution when attempting to move your grow lights closer, and avoid moving them more than an inch closer in a day, so you can watch the plant’s reaction.

Monitor the temperature and humidity with a thermometer/hygrometer in your grow space

LEDs generate very little heat, but can still light-stress plants, so it’s best to keep LEDs the distance recommended by the manufacturer. Each grow light is different, so it’s hard to make generalizations, but just about every LED needs to be at least 10″ inches away from your plants. In my experience, most hobby-sized LEDs (100-300watt true power draw) need to be kept 18-24″ away in my experience. Some LEDs need to be kept even further away, up to 3 feet or more for some of the newer, extremely powerful LED models.

Cannabis plants can show false signs of nutrient deficiencies when the relative humidity of the grow area drops below 35% RH, especially when things get really dry. Younger plants are most susceptible, though plants often adjust over time many plants are able to grow just fine as long as they’re provided with plenty of water at the roots. Some strains can handle low humidity better than others.

Step 1: Verify Watering Habits & Root Health

Even if you’re providing nutrients, plants may get nutrient deficiencies if the pH is off. This magnesium deficiency is the result of the pH being too low at the roots.

With the right tools, the task of maintaining humidity can be close to automated, and you will see huge benefits compared to the amount of time and money you invest.

Cannabis growing problems and solutions

Over-watering and under-watering are very common. However, these problems are pretty easy to solve. The cannabis leaves will drop in under-watered, while growing pretty slowly. Whereas if the plants are overwatered, the leaves will curl downwards. The growth will be slow in this condition as well. If this problem is solved quickly, then the root of the plant will not rot. Over-watering can be solved by minimizing the frequency and amount of water. On the other hand, for under-watering problems, this has to be dealt with in the opposite manner. For other problems, it is better to take the help of professionals who are experts in the cannabis growing business.

What is organic marijuana? Is it like most other organic products we see packing the shelves of grocery stores these days? Are there actual steps taken to ensure this product is different from other marijuana products? In short the answer is yes. Organic marijuana is growing in popularity as bigger and bigger competitors enter the marijuana growing market. Just like organic vegetables, marijuana users want to use a product that is not inundated with toxic chemical by-products. Organic weed is cannabis that is allowed to grow naturally without the use of dangerous pesticides or chemicals that would accelerate growth, increase durability, or prevent bug infestations.

Watering (under or over)

A plant’s temperature is vital to its health, but unfortunately, unlike animals and humans, plants cannot create their own heat. Instead, your marijuana plant will be entirely dependent on its environment. When it comes to cannabis growing temperature, the cannabis plants’ temperature comes from an amalgamation of evaporation, external light and external temperature. Though the plants’ temperature cannot be found using a thermometer, it can be measured by indications that in the plants leaves. Temperature while important to the growing process is not the only thing to consider when it comes to growing cannabis and running a cannabis related business. Cannabis entrepreneurs should know that a host of problems are possible and should be accounted for before even deciding to enter the cannabis industry. A good rule of thumb for entering any business is making sure that your finances and current position allow you to enter this market without jeopardizing your entire livelihood.

Determining what levels and mixtures of the factors above will be needed for your purpose should be determined by you with the aid of a trained professional.

The best way to determine what soil you should use in your garden is to find a reputable cannabis equipment professional..

Organic cannabis growing is both flexible and simple. Organic cannabis does not require anything more than soil, sunlight, and time. Allowing the marijuana to develop naturally and without any acceleration in the developmental process, leads many users and growers to believe that the finished product is superior. While there is no working definition of “organic” marijuana in the medical marijuana sphere, people in the industry generally understand it to mean marijuana that has no added chemicals or substances.
