Like other crops and plants, Cannabis Ruderalis can also be grown both indoors and outdoors. Some of the essential conditions have to be satisfied with the proper growth of Cannabis marijuana and to make sure that, the plants have a healthy habitat. It is advisable to follow some of the basic requirements in terms of light, air, plant food, etc. to ensure the growth of a healthy group of plants. However, keep in mind, that, marijuana is worth growing for medical purposes rather than growing it to use as a recreational drug. Some of the tips of growing marijuana indoors are as follows:
People who have interests to grow marijuana indoors should ensure that the plants have sufficient supply of light. Lights belonging to the red or blue spectrum serve the purpose of marijuana growing but it is better to have light in fluorescent form ranging in power from 250 – 800 watts. It is better to place the lights 40 – 60 cms away from the plant. It is also advisable to maintain a temperature of 20 – 25 degrees C for the ideal growth of marijuana. Plant them around 1 cm below the soil. The soil is better if it has a fluffy and loose nature. For indoor growth supply of air could be in the form of breeze provided by a fan. Please make sure that you supply adequate water to the plants but do not overwater them.
The outdoor growing of marijuana also has the same requirements. It is advisable to plant them on pots so that they can move easily and get exposure to sunlight for at least 4 – 6 hrs a day. Sunlight is an essential requirement for outdoor growth of marijuana. Supply plenty of fresh air along with water to the plants. The soil is better if it is fluffy and loose as the perlite helps the plant growth. Preventive measures are a must so that pests or insects cannot attack the plants. Especially in the first 4 – 5 weeks. Allow growing in the vegetative phase until the flowering phase sets in. Once the flowering phase starts, protect the plants from molds. Last but not the least, separate the male plants from the female ones to avoid pollination which will stop females from producing buds.
