With the legalization of cannabis in the 21 states of US, you might be interested in growing cannabis indoors. So, what exactly do you need to know for that. Firstly, you would need to choose the location where you want to plant. Additionally, you would also need some resources. These are the factors that allow a cannabis plant to thrive under extreme conditions or in indoor.
So, if you are a beginner who is trying to grow some cannabis, check out the following steps for a hassle free growth.
#1: Choose The Grow Light
As you know cannabis or any plant requires light to grow properly. So, you need to be careful about growing cannabis indoors, and the light source you use. You can try out LED or other fluorescent sources. However, if you are starting cheap, then good quality CFLs would also do.
#2: Growing Medium
Depending on your preference and knowledge, you can try out hydroponics, soil as a medium or soilless mix. With hydroponics, the growth is faster, and you also get greater yields. However, if you are not accustomed to hydroponics, try the basic method of farming, i.e., with soil.
#3: Choosing Correct Cannabis Strains
When you have finished the growing medium, you need to choose the correct cannabis strains. With the proper cannabis seeds, you would be able to get a better yield. Additionally, some strains are more in demand due to the medicinal properties. So, all you would need is choosing the correct strains.
#4: Don’t Forget Nutrients
If you have planted your cannabis tree, you would also need to provide it with the correct nutrients. It is better to go with the natural nutrients, since they don’t harm the plant. However, after checking the pH level of the soil, you can also try out some non organic fertilizers. This would help in the proper growth and yield of the plant.
After this, you need to take care of your cannabis plants daily. Once it comes to the bud stage, make sure that you trim its unwanted branches, and wait for the bud to bloom. Once that is done, you are ready to harvest the weed. The cannabis after harvesting is a raw version, and it needs to be cleaned, dried and packed. If you want to use it in any format, you can do so after it has been clean and dried.
So, these were the steps of growing cannabis indoors. The process of growing cannabis is simple, and all you need to do is plant it and treat it like normal plants.
