Let’s face it: you can’t grow weed without weed. Even though cannabis thrives like a weed, it won’t just ‘magically appear’ in your garden. If you want to start growing cannabis, you’ll need one of two things. Either you get a cutting from a living ‘mother plant’, providing you with a 1:1 genetic clone of the mother. Or you purchase high quality cannabis seeds from a trusted supplier. A prime source for top notch genetics is the Amsterdam Genetics Seeds Bank, where you can select all your favorite weed strains and phenotypes. This is a great way to explore the different tastes and effects we have in store, as well as being your guarantee for world-class cannabis genetics.
You may think that growing cannabis outdoors is a no-brainer in terms of lighting; after all, the sun comes up on a daily basis, doesn’t it? Well, that’s not entirely correct, because the intensity and amount of sunlight determines how much grow power your plant can draw from it. That means it pays to think before you start, preferably using large pots for your plants so you can move them around later if you need more light or shelter.
1. Quality Cannabis Seeds
As you can read in our blog on the various life stages of cannabis, you can draw a basic distinction between three stages in the life of a cannabis plant: germination, vegetation (growth), and flowering. Each of these stages is directed by light, whether indoors or outside. In nature, a freshly germinated seedling first starts to grow as fast as possible to toughen up, with enough leaves to catch the light and firm roots for nutrient absorption. In natural conditions, that happens in spring, when the sun is not yet straight above the equator. As the days get longer, the rays of the sun don’t have their full summer strength yet. Plats ‘sense’ this, so if you get your timing right, your germinated seeds will grow fastest from early May until about mid- or late June. Indoors, you can simulate these springtime conditions all year long by using a ’16/8′ lighting schedule. That means switching on the lights for 16 hours and then switching them off again for eight hours of ‘night’ – similar to outdoor Spring conditions, that is.
Ready – Steady – Grow!
When given the ideal amount of water, the leaves of cannabis plants should be upright during the day. As if they’re holding their little ‘plant-arms’ up to the sky to improve their intake of precious sunlight. At night, the leaves come down and hang towards the ground. If the leaves hang like that during the day, you are either giving too much water to your plants or not giving enough. Simply feeling the soil or substrate with your fingers should provide clarity on that matter. Have a look at our watering grow blog for more information about perfect watering techniques.
