How to grow a single cannabis plant indoors for the first time
The first time I attempted to grow cannabis was over 15 years ago. It wasn’t a commercial attempt, but rather for personal recreational use. My attempts were met with two things: (1) the cannabis plants were extremely small and (2) the cannabis was only on a 2 to 4 week cycle.
Why didn’t this work for me?
I can’t pinpoint exactly why it didn’t work, but I can say that it didn’t due to some combination of:
I didn’t do anything to optimize my plant’s growth rate.
I used old-fashioned soil that wasn’t optimized to grow plants.
I failed to identify which of the plants were “strains” of cannabis plants.
It’s likely that I would have succeeded if I’d have done some of the following things:
Selected strains with faster growth rates and the right “flavor”
Used soil optimized for plant growth
Used a nutrient rich fertiliser
Identified each plant to know which strain it was (and to avoid growing multiple strains)
This post is aimed at cannabis growers that want to do more for their plant than just put it into a 2-4 week cycle.
If that’s you, read on…
What do you need to get started?
The most important things to consider when growing cannabis are:
Your climate and its environment
The health of your soil
The variety of cannabis plant that you choose to grow
How often you plan on growing your plants
You’ll also want to consider:
How you’ll measure your yield of your cannabis plants
How you’ll save and store your cannabis plants
What you’ll need to grow cannabis plants from seeds
So let’s start with your climate and its environment…
Your Climate &, Its Environment
The weather in your area will have a huge impact on the health of your soil and the size and strength of your cannabis plants.
It’s important to keep your plants healthy in these critical first months to avoid a slow crop later in the growing season.
You’ll need to choose a climate and soil type that is appropriate for your plant and your goals.
This can be a bit of trial and error.
If you get it wrong, you could end up with a plant that is unhealthy and will have a weak and slow growing season.
The climate you choose depends on your growing style.
You’ll probably want to consider a climate that will allow your plants to stay indoors for most of the growing season.
The best time to build a greenhouse is during the summer months when the days are longest and your cannabis plants have the most light they can see.
This way you can minimize your exposure to the elements and allow your plants to be inside and protected from weather while you work in the garden.
Indoors your climate and your soil type can be controlled to allow you to provide the ideal growing conditions for your plants.
If you’re not already growing your plants indoors, you’ll have to determine how to manage your temperature and humidity.
Some grow lights provide this ability.
You can also consider purchasing a humidity/temperature monitor.
A humidity/temperature monitor will allow you to keep your plants from over- or under-watering and to control their humidity levels so they are as comfortable as possible.
Keep in mind that it’s easy to become overwhelmed by all of the growing factors.
In fact, it can be difficult to remember to feed your plants, keep them watered, and keep them growing indoors.
There is a huge variety of grow lights out there and you’ll probably want to find one that’s right for you.
The best cannabis grow light for indoor plants will provide the right amount of light that your plants need.
In general, you want to keep the light shining on your cannabis plants about 6-8 inches from their leaves so you get the maximum light exposure.
Some growers use grow lights for 8 hours, while others choose to use LED grow lights that only need to be on for about half of the day.
If you’re growing your plants indoors in a room where your windows are on the south side, consider purchasing a grow light that will allow the sun to come through.
This way you’ll get some direct sunlight and your plants will receive the amount of sunlight they need to grow.
If you’re not using a grow light, make sure that you have an electrician that you can trust to install a good quality electrical system.
You don’t want to end up with an electricity bill that is so high that you’ll be spending more money than you’re saving on your cannabis.
The first step is to decide what cannabis plants you’ll be growing indoors and what size they’ll be when they’re harvested.
Remember that your plants will start with just a seed, but once it’s been sprouting for about three weeks, it will begin to grow.
When you’re purchasing cannabis plants, you’ll want to look for high quality plants that have already begun to flower.
Keep in mind that the cannabis plant can only take so much stress, so if the plant starts to look stressed after being placed in its grow chamber, it’s time to re-order.
After you ve taken the plants from the grow light, you’ll want to place them in the grower that you’ve chosen.
If you have a small space, you’ll want to opt for a small grower.
The grower will be the container in which your plant s buds are grown, and it’s where they will be nurtured to full maturity.
Make sure that you buy a grower that will provide the right levels of nutrients and water, as well as provide good ventilation.
Make sure that you use a vent that has a grill cover to allow light in while preventing excess moisture and insects from entering.
When you re ready to bring the plants out of the grower, you ll need to make sure that you’re not exposing them to extreme temperatures.
If your grow light s temperature gets too high or the temperature in your grow room gets too low, it will decrease the vigor of the plant and decrease the plant s growth.
After planting, you ll need to provide the plant with the correct amount of light.
If the grower that you ve purchased is placed directly on the ground, it won t receive the necessary light for the plant to grow.
In order to fix this issue, you ll need to cover your grower with soil and place it in the ground.
Planting your cannabis plant in the ground will provide you with the light you re looking for.
You ll want to avoid planting the cannabis plant in the shade, as it will likely be susceptible to frost damage.
You ll want to make sure that you have a good amount of light on your plant, and that it gets a steady source of light.
Because the cannabis plant is a diurnal grower, the grower that you re using needs to be placed in your
