Unlike other crops, Cannabis comes along with certain advantages. Breeders have the liberty to choose where they want to grow the plants – indoors or outdoors. Some of the breeders have increased fantasy about growing the Cannabis crops indoors as complete security and privacy are maintained. Growing the crop indoors also reduces the amount of formation of pests or insects.
However, the breeders have to decide certain types of seeds that will in the end turn into the healthy growth of the plants. Which will also produce larger yields. Some of the seeds available for indoor growth of Cannabis might have a top of approximately 60 – 80 cms. The yields typically range from 400 – 450 grams/sq.meter. The ultimate product to have is a sweet candy-like taste upon formation. Also, there are other variants which have a top of up to 70 cms. The yield could typically be around 200 – 250 grams/sq.meter.
The process of growing Cannabis Ruderalis indoors generally includes certain elements such as light, room temperature, and medium for growing, food, water and the availability of fresh air. The seeds are planted at most around 1 cm below the soil and placed very firmly. Some of the breeders have the habit of covering the plant by some means to prevent moisture and a temperature of around 20 – 25 degrees Celsius is maintained. The type of soil suitable for the growth of Cannabis is loose soil with a 25% perlite mix which provides proper aeration.
Proper Timing and Watering
Proper care has to be taken so that Cannabis crops are not destroyed due to overwatering. The breeders who desire to have larger yields of Cannabis make room for 6 weeks of growth in the vegetative phase before proceeding to the flowering phase.
The indoor growth of Cannabis also requires artificial lighting with the same properties as that of sunlight. Fluorescent blue color is preferable for this purpose. Sometimes colors belonging to the red spectrum are also good. They range between 250 – 800 watts and are 40 – 60 cms away from the Cannabis plant.
Proper Airflow & Feeding
Cannabis plants also require a supply of air which could be in the form of gentle breeze from a fan. Breeders also use carbon filter systems to mitigate the aroma of crops. Sometimes ozone generators are also used to fight the odors. Breeders do have a habit of using certain extra nutrients to achieve bigger yields of Cannabis.
