Many people think that you can only grow marijuana outdoor, having large plants. On the other hand, many others know that it can be grown indoor, but do not know how to do it from start to finish. For this reason, in this guide we are going to teach you how to grow your marijuana plants from germination to curing the buds, going through all the stages of cultivation such as seed germination, seedling growth, the vegetative growth, flowering time, until reaching the harvest, the drying of the buds and the curing of the weed flowers.
In addition, other points must be added, such as the irrigation of weed plants, the supply of nutrients and fertilizers so that they grow strong and flourish, delivering large harvests, among other fundamental details for the successful cultivation of weed.
In the first place, we tell you that if you live buying marijuana at the dispensary, you are going to spend much more money in the medium and long term, compared to if you grow your own weed at home, then saving money can be considered as the first reason to start self-cultivating weed. In addition, you never know what cannabis plants can deliver, since some strains pleasantly surprise growers, either with their wonderful colors, great aromas, the magnificence of their harvests, among other situations that occur when you grow weed in House.
Do not forget that being in the garden growing plants will stimulate you to better carry out the day as it relaxes and relieves stress. Do not get confused, because the grass you grow at home will always be better than the one you buy, since you know what products nourish your plants, you did the cultivation process with your own hands and you know what each gram of weed contains. you smoke directly from your garden. If you buy from a real dealer or dispensary, you don’t know how that marijuana was cultivated.
Now, be careful, because although some states have realigned their laws, others have literally legalized weed for medicinal or adult use, this does not apply to all states, an issue that can get you in trouble and even put you in jail. For the same reason, it is always good to know the legal status of marijuana in your area.
What you will need to grow weed indoor will depend, first of all, on the space you have. For example, if you have a small space in a closet, you only need a more basic crop without having to invest so many resources, if you have a larger space, you will need more resources to equip your indoor crop in a good way. Do not worry if this seems a bit complicated to you, because we are going to summarize this point in 3 basic things that you are going to need to start your cultivation and that are, the lighting system, the temperature and humidity controls and also, the tent. of cultivation.
Now is the time to select the lighting for the crop, a resource that is of vital importance, since these lights will literally become the sun that the plants need to be able to grow and flourish. Here you can opt for a traditional lighting system such as HPS lights which provide great harvests but consume too much energy and will cause your electricity bill to skyrocket in consumption. In addition, they generate too much heat which can sometimes suffocate the plants weed.
You can also find the latest generation LED lights that do not consume as much energy and also do not generate the heat caused by HPS, but that cost much more expensive than a traditional lighting system. For this reason, it is necessary that you do an analysis of the market and its different offers, so that you can buy a lighting system according to your budget which is functional for you and does not wear out your wallet.
It is very important to keep in mind that the power of the lighting you want to use will depend exclusively on the number of plants and also on the size of the space in which you are going to grow. This may sound confusing, but don’t worry because, for this reason, we leave you an explanatory table below.
As a reference, this is the number of plants and the space that the HPS lights can cover according to the power. Keep in mind that used HPS lights tend to be a little less effective than new ones, since they tend to wear out after each crop, so it is good to renew this type of equipment with some frequency.
To get an idea of how much light you are providing to your plants, you can buy a light meter and measure the light intensity at various points in the canopy. As an alternative, you can make a theoretical calculation that takes into account the lumens emitted by the lamp in relation to the growing area. To calculate the lux pressure in the glass, you just have to divide the lumens of the lamp by the square meters of the illuminated surface.
If you place a lamp that produces 100,000lm at a distance of 1m from the top of the plant, it will illuminate an area of 1m² with an intensity of 100,000lx (100,000lm÷1m=100,000lx). If the lamp is only 0.5m away, it will receive 100,000lm÷0.5m=200,000lx. Unfortunately, the light intensity decreases by a factor equal to the square of the distance of the source from the illuminated object, therefore the same lamp placed at two meters will increase the width of the beam, covering 4m², but with only 25,000lx.
Consequently, you would need four lamps to reach your hypothetical goal of 100,000lx throughout your grow area. In the following table you can see the power you need to grow marijuana with LED lights, following the parameters already exposed (power x number of plants x size of space).
Fluorescent lights may be among the cheapest and that meet a degree of efficiency close to their cost, and you can also find them in many stores and places to buy them. Within this type of lights we can find the following.
CFL: The light spectrum these lights deliver is decent and they perform effectively when growing in small spaces. To the above, add that you can find them in any store where they sell light bulbs.
T5: They are those that are distributed in a large panel and are used for growing various plants. Today this type of lights is used little or almost nothing, since LED technology is much more efficient, emits less heat and consumes less energy, so you will not have to pay a large electricity bill at the end of the day. month.
This is the second of the parameters that we talk about here and it is very important, since plants require adequate temperature and humidity both to grow and develop, and to flourish. That is why here we are going to talk about how to control temperature and humidity in a more general way, since you can visit the other articles on the Blimburn Seeds blog where we already teach how to manage humidity and heat in the growing area in a more general way. deeper and more complete. Currently, growers have various tools for cultivation and if they can measure and control humidity in indoor crops, they have the thergometromohy. This is a necessary tool for any modern cannabis grower. But it also avoids problems that frequently occur and make months of work and investments stumble. This instrument is essential in indoor cultivation, but also during the curing of cannabis, or during cutting.
As you can imagine, this electronic instrument measures and displays the temperature (T) and relative humidity (RH) of the medium with which you will be able to control two parameters. Having the humidity controlled will prevent fungi from proliferating in your indoor cultivation, parasites that destroy all your work and harvest. On the other hand, by measuring the temperature, you prevent the plants from suffering from heat stress or that their development and flowering are deplorable due to not having the heat inside the crop at an optimal level.
If you suffer from high humidity in your indoor grow tent you can lower it, making the vent pipe work faster and pulling dirty air from inside the grow tent to the outside. You can add a tube that enters fresh air with which you also decrease humidity and lastly, water the plants when you turn on the lights, an issue that causes the substrate to lose humidity a little faster, decreasing the ambient humidity.
Otherwise, if your plants suffer from low humidity, try to keep the substrate always moist, but not soaking wet, and include containers with water inside the indoor. To the above add a humidifier that has a capacity close to the space and the number of plants you grow and finally, try to spray the plants in the vegetative stage, a matter that will refresh them and will make them feel fresher with a little more moisture.
Now, if we talk about the temperatures and if they are very high in your indoor grow, you can reduce them by turning off the lights in the hours of highest temperature and turning them on in the hours of lowest temperatures. It is recommended to use LED lights with which the temperature inside will decrease a few degrees in relation to HPS lights that produce a lot of heat. It occupies a cooltube in the lighting system since it will keep the plants isolated and will prevent them from feeling excess heat. When you grow with HPS, always try to keep the ballast out of the growing area or where the plants are, as they emit heat which can affect the plants in the garden.
In case you suffer from low temperatures in your indoor cultivation you can use a heater to raise the thermometer a few degrees, you can also purchase a lighting system with more power. Another trick that works is to disconnect the lighting bulb from the air cooling system so that the hot air stays inside the crop and thus the temperature rises and to finish, you can use some wooden pallets so that the tent does not remain directly in the soil and can better preserve the temperatures inside.
Even if you have a large room or a garage for growing cannabis, the best way to grow weed is always going to be in a tent made for this purpose. The facilities that grow tents provide, allow the control of factors such as humidity, temperature, production or deficiency of CO2, control of pests and insects and do not forget that indoors you can mold the structure more to your liking and size of your plant.
Another important point is that with the grow tents you do not lose lighting watts, since they are completely sealed and have a reflective material that allows the light to expand and better penetrate the plants throughout their life cycle. Without forgetting that they also have strategically made holes to be able to put the lighting cables, the ventilation tubes and those personalized accessories that we want to add.
Now, before buying any type of grow tent, it is necessary to know the number of power outlets that are available in the place you want to grow. Obviously, it must be clear what is the amount of money that you have to be able to carry out the cultivation and the number of plants that you want to cultivate, since according to the number of weed plants, a determination must be made of what size it should be. be the grow tent. Many novice growers have doubts about how many plants they can put in their indoor, for this reason in this guide we are going to show you how many plants you can have in your indoor tent according to the size of this place, so that you maximize the harvests in your marijuana growing cycle.
We have now reached the end of the first part of our indoor growing guide. Do not forget that you can continue learning in the next post of our blog with the second part of how to grow indoor weed optimally in your home.In addition, at Blimburn seeds you can buy the best marijuana seeds with the quality guarantee of our seed bank that is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
In the first part of our article, we review the basic concepts of indoor cannabis cultivation, and we also give you tips for optimal cultivation. In this way, we give you the necessary information so that you can select the correct grow tent, in relation to the size and the amount of lighting that you will need, on the other hand, we also teach you what the leading lighting systems are, we talk about their different powers and the importance of the spectrum. Another point that we addressed was the importance of temperatures in cultivation and humidity control, both being super-relevant parameters when cultivating.
In this second part, we will talk about other vitally relevant factors such as the pots for cultivation, the substrate where you grew your plants, and the fertilizers that nourish the weed plants you grow. Another appropriate point that we cover in this tutorial is the automation of indoor weed cultivation we will also refer to the use of accessories such as dehumidifiers and humidifiers, which can help you in the cultivation.
Pots are essential for growing cannabis, since they are the house in which the plant will be housed from sowing or transplanting, until harvest. To choose the perfect pot to grow marijuana, different important factors must be taken into account, such as the shape of the pot, which can be round or square. Normally, the square ones are used indoor to make better use of the space inside the grow rooms or tents, while either of the two is usually used outdoor. In addition, plants prefer tall pots and not so wide, since the root system needs to go as deep as possible to the bottom of it.
On the other hand, drainage is also a fundamental aspect to know what type of pot is best for planting, since it is necessary for the plants to receive optimal aeration and oxygenation. In this sense, there are pots with grids, with holes in the bottom and some with holes distributed over the entire surface of the container. Color is also important, since a white hue protects the root system from high temperatures. Of course, the capacity is crucial to know what type of pot is best for your crop, since in indoor crops pots of between 3 and 11 liters are usually used, even up to 20 L depending on the possibilities of the available space. Outdoor, the containers can be larger, reaching over 20 litres.
Among the wide range of pots that exist on the market, here we are not going to focus on 2 of them. The first are square plastic pots, which are the most classic and used by indoor growers because they help maximize space and collaborate in a good way with the development of plants. In addition, its smooth and non-porous touch allows easy cleaning. Ideal for indoor and outdoor crops, it is recommended to apply expanded clay in its lower part to avoid waterlogging.
From the sidewalk in front we find the cloth pots, which are ideal for hydroponic crops, since their porous fabric benefits the absorption of nutrients. They are strong, resistant, flexible, easy to transport and can be used for several years without losing their quality. In addition, when the roots touch the sides of the pot, self-pruning is carried out, which translates into a healthier root system. The black ones tend to attract more light than the white ones, so they are better for indoor cultivation.
Growing in substrate or soil is one of the easiest ways to grow, especially if you are a novice grower. Within the various substrates that exist, you can find some in “light” format, which only have light concentrations of nutrients and good amounts of coconut fiber and perlite. For this reason, you can complement the nutrition of your plants with fertilizers, whether liquid or solid to avoid the existence of deficiencies.
On the other hand, there are also complete substrates, which are characterized by having high concentrations of nutrients and usually do not need to be supplemented with extra nutrients such as liquid or solid fertilizers, at least during the first weeks of cultivation. We must not forget that there are also the substrates made in case such as compost which we can do with the organic remains of our kitchen and also, adding some components such as horse or cow poop, which give us nitrogen and chicken poop , which gives us potassium. This point gives us the opportunity to talk about the nutrients or fertilizers necessary to nourish our weed plants.
As with substrates, in the case of fertilizers you can find some nutrients that are rich in nutrients and others with less concentration, in organic, mineral or vegan fertilizer formats, of which we will detail their qualities below. But, before moving forward, we are going to tell you that there are extra nutritional supplements that we call stimulants for cannabis, which fulfill additional or supplementary functions and also contribute to the optimal development of the plant from sowing to harvest for the same reason. , we will tell you details about them later.
Organic fertilizers come from the decomposition of living matter (for example, from other plants or animal excrement). This class of fertilizers provide naturally formed minerals, which will serve as food for the plant. Its manufacturing process is 100% environmentally friendly, unlike the synthesis of mineral fertilizers; so organic fertilizers are 100% ecological and the vast majority are renewable.
Organic fertilizers are slow absorption, this means that the roots of the plant can have the different nutrients when it requires it, in the precise quantity and proportion. As a consequence, the plant receives a more balanced diet, in addition to preventing possible overfertilization of the plants (burning the plants). The latter, super important, if we are beginners in the cultivation of cannabis.
Growing with organic fertilizers, your marijuana will have a unique flavor and aroma, with a richer terpene and flavonoid profile, full of nuances, like good wine. This is because organic fertilization stimulates the biological activity of the soil, offering the plant greater variety and quality in terms of nutrients and trace elements. As a result we will have buds with a deep and complex flavor and smell. As disadvantages of this type of fertilizers, it should be noted that, in sterile substrate, organic fertilizers can favor the appearance of insects and fungi. Another important disadvantage compared to synthetic fertilizers is their price: they are usually more expensive than mineral ones.
Synthetic or mineral fertilizers are obtained from non-renewable raw materials. They are synthesized through the action of man, and, many times, through chemical processes that are very harmful to the environment, both because of the waste they generate and because of the enormous amount of non-renewable energy that is used.
Due to their higher degree of solubility, mineral fertilizers are the most suitable for hydroponic cannabis cultivation, since organic fertilizers could clog the irrigation system. On the other hand, synthetic fertilizers are more effective than organic ones when it comes to correcting deficiencies. This happens because its composition is more precise, with which we can control the proportion of nutrients that we are providing to the plant with greater accuracy. Another advantage to take into account of this type of fertilizers is that they are usually much cheaper than organic ones.
Despite the benefits, growing with synthetic fertilizers also has significant drawbacks. In the first place, using mineral fertilizers, the plant does not take full advantage of the nutrients that we provide. Synthetic fertilizers usually come in liquid format, so they are added to the irrigation water, and then the plant is watered with this nutrient solution. It happens then that this water filters and are distributed throughout the substrate so that the roots do not manage to absorb all of it, and thus part of the nutrients that we have added is lost. On the other hand, the activity of humic and fulvic acids in the soil (main actors in the transformation of living matter into food) decreases and, with it, the availability of nutrients for the plant.
Synthetic fertilizers are fast absorbing, unlike organic ones. Using synthetic fertilizers we must fertilize very rigorously (for this, always consult the fertilizer table provided by the manufacturer) since, otherwise, the development of the plant could be affected. As we have mentioned, with this type of fertilizer it is easier for us to fall into an excess of fertilization of our plants, even killing them.
Vegan-based fertilizers in cultivation are differentiated by using products based on plant matter that replaces traditional organic fertilizers. Although animal organic fertilizers and vegan organic fertilizers have their differences, both are organic fertilizer techniques, but with different origins; animal or vegetable.
The vegan nutrition strategy (Veganics) is based on the idea that plants are capable of transforming plant nutrients more quickly using less energy since for the decomposition of nutrients the plant must carry out an enzymatic process so that they are available to the plant. In vegan horticulture, this does not happen, since this process is not necessary if you are using an organic product based on vegetable matter. This allows the plant to grow stronger and develop rounder and more compact flowers, in addition to developing and greatly expanding the spectrum of phenols (terpenes and flavonoids) and cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBG…).
Root stimulants are various products that are used to enhance root growth. They are formulated based on rooting hormones, vitamins, beneficial fungi, and other compounds. Generally, they are nutritional supplements that ensure that the root system grows more and improves its levels of nutrient and water absorption. Its use allows the plant to grow stronger and protected it from any damage or natural adversity by which it may be affected. In addition, they allow more abundant flowering and greater production.
On the other hand, there are the rooters which are a type of liquid fertilizer that contains growth hormones and nutrients. Its function is to stimulate root growth. In addition, there are beneficial mushrooms. These are microorganisms that form a symbiotic relationship with the plant and among which we find two fundamental ones, such as mycorrhizae and trichodermas.
In general, the stimulants that help reduce the stress of cannabis plants are highly concentrated, since they mix hormones and vitamins that reduce the stress of the plant, reinforce the essential functions of the plant and protect it from external aggressions. This type of product found on the market can be used throughout the life of the plant, although you must be careful in the first weeks of flowering. Also, there are stimulants that can be used when the plant has many deficiencies since they can complement the feeding of the specimens in the garden.
On the opposite side of the road, we also find vitamins, which are not food, therefore it is not possible to overfertilize they can be used throughout the life cycle of the plant, but it is especially important during the first 10 days of the plant’s life. plant and when we do a transplant. Obviously, these vitamins can be used in the plant cycle change phase, from growth to flowering, in order to deliver a little extra energy to the crop plant.
Growth stimulants or enhancers are products that allow greater development in marijuana plants by combining them with our growth base nutrients. Its function is to encourage the creation of stems, shoots, and leaves. In many cases, they are substances such as hormones, vitamins, amino acids, and trace elements that act together with the root structure, favoring greater assimilation of nutrients without the plant suffering from overfertilization or blockages.
They improve cell division, photosynthetic functions and ultimately growth and health in crops. They are not fertilizers per se, so we must always combine them with our usual fertilizers. So, if you use growth stimulants, you will achieve greater growth in less time and it will be reflected in larger plants when the flowering stage begins and logically with greater final production of buds. Remember that every great harvest begins when you sow the seed and it begins to generate the roots.
Bloom stimulators are generally products whose content is based on amino acids, vitamins, enzymes, and trace elements. The stimulators are responsible for increasing the number of flowers as well as shortening the internodal space. As the space between nodes is so small, the buds end up almost being united, which means that long tails will form on each branch.
Regardless of the stimulator that we use, the manufacturer’s instructions and recommendations must always be followed and its compatibility with other fertilizers that we are going to use must be confirmed. In fact, almost all manufacturers include in their ranges of fertilizers and stimulants, crop charts with which we can guide ourselves to make good use of these products.
Bud fattening stimulants in cannabis plants are necessary if you want the flowers to be fat, heavy and compact. The flowers of the plants begin to fatten around the 3rd or 4th week of flowering in most commercial weed varieties, which is the right time to start using PK-based bud fatteners.
Seabird poop is a great organic bud fattener
Now, we must clarify that the fattening of buds are additives and stimulants that help increase the volume of the buds. In this phase, the plants need an extra supply of phosphorus, which increases the size of the buds and intervenes in the formation of cannabinoids and terpenes. And also, weed plants require Potassium that regulates vital processes such as the metabolism of sugars and protein that provides energy to flowering. It intervenes in the metabolism of cannabinoids, and increases the vigor of flowering. In addition, the plants will need an extra supply of carbohydrates (sugars), to be metabolized and transformed into energy.
We continue with our saga of articles on indoor cultivation and it is right here where we tell you that another appropriate point that we address in this tutorial is the automation of indoor marijuana cultivation, we will also refer to the use of accessories such as dehumidifiers and humidifiers, which can help you in cultivation.
Also, it is good to emphasize the importance of automating weed cultivation with the use of timers, since this optimizes the cultivation more efficiently. Now, when we refer to automating the crop, we must also talk about the electrical systems that will support our crop and that will give life to important devices such as fans. Finally, and perhaps it is one of the most important points in this saga of articles, we are going to comment on how vital it is to select weed seeds for cultivation, the different types of cannabis seeds that exist, and how you can do a great choice of upcoming weed strains for your indoor grow.
If you have a good budget, buy a device that fulfills both functions and thus saves a little space inside the grow tent. In relation to this point, the best place to locate them is near the walls of the tent in the sector where the holes are where you let fresh air out and enter into the interior of the crop. You must bear in mind that you have to analyze for each particular crop how to use these devices since it is not the same, cultivating hybrid genetics from North America, as an equatorial sativa or from towards, and even less so, an autochthonous indica from the Hindu Kush or from Pakistan, because each genetic response differently depending on the climate of the place where they originate.
Of course, the right temperatures are essential for healthy plants, but the importance of relative humidity in relation to the life stage of the plant should not be overlooked if you want to optimize your indoor grow space. A correct humidity allows faster development of the plants, which translates into shorter growth periods, but also healthier plants thanks to better transpiration and assimilation of nutrients.
A good way to get the most out of your indoor setup and get the most out of your cannabis grow is to use a humidifier, which makes it easy to maintain the ideal humidity level for your growing space. this allows healthy plants to obtain the maximum yield of the crop. If in your indoor growing area, the temperature is too high and the humidity is too low, then you will need a humidifier so that your plants can develop optimally.
Well, as its name says, the dehumidifier is an electrical device that helps reduce the ambient humidity in your growing area in case it is shot to very high levels, an issue that can affect your plants by promoting the appearance of fungus, insects, and other types of health problems. With the proper use of the dehumidifier you will keep humidity at bay, even after having carried out the harvest because, the drying of marijuana depends on its correct curing and subsequent enjoyment, so it is a stage in which each bud must be carefully cared for because if we go too far at this time, all our work can be ruined.
After harvesting the plants we will have to place them in a dark and dry room. In this process, the dehumidifier performs the function of keeping at bay any trace of humidity that could damage our harvest. About three weeks is usually enough, but the exact time is given by experience and also by the type of plant that we have used. In all elements of climate control, we will have to be aware of the geographical area in which we grow. Marijuana production in humid areas (rainy or coastal) will not have the same soaking needs as those carried out in drier and more arid inland areas. In this case, the need for a dehumidifier is much greater and drying will be much slower. On the contrary, in very dry areas, closer monitoring of hygrometry will be more necessary, using more humidifiers.
It is essential and very simple to have a timer to control the hours of light that cannabis plants will receive in indoor cultivation, even though nowadays you can find manual and other digital timers in any store, remember to buy that one, which fits your budget. We say that it is vital to use a timer in the crop, since in the case of plants that are photoperiodic, that is, the Fast Version, Feminized, and Regular types, as we already know, require a light cycle of 18 hours of lighting and another 6 hours of darkness when they grow.
Otherwise, if you do not provide the correct light cycle, exceeding the hours, you can cause the cannabis plants to revegetate (produce more leaves and branches even in flowering) or their size exceeds the indoor cultivation space with which accounts. And in the event that your plants receive fewer hours of light, you will see the harvest diminished with poor yields since they will not develop optimally and will also suffer from some deficiencies due to the lack of the correct light.
Only if you have cannabis plants that are independent of photoperiods, as is the case with autoflowering seeds, you will not need a timer since you can provide them with 24 hours of continuous light throughout the cycle. However, you must be careful because the plants can suffer from some type of light stress due to the number of hours of light, in view of this, it is always good to be checking the plants and verifying that they are in a comfort zone so that they can develop properly. optimal way.
Although it seems obvious, it is necessary that you always keep in mind that the current must be in optimal conditions, so that your crop is the best and also so that the place where it grows does not suffer damage.
Avoid using overloaded outlets since, as you know, you need to plug in a good number of electrical devices, among which we have the fans, the humidifier or dehumidifier (if necessary) obviously, the entire ventilation system, and the extractors and intractors, which are going to deliver fresh air and take out dirty air. So, you must be careful and in case you need to install another panel that can withstand all that electrical load, do it so that you avoid blackouts in your house or heats in the general electrical system of the place where you grow.
In another article where we talked about the ventilation of an indoor crop, is that we refer extensively to fans, which undoubtedly play a fundamental role in indoor cultivation. Perhaps, some growers do not know this, but the air that the fans move in indoor cultivation allows the plants to create strong branches, which in flowering are capable of supporting the weight of the buds.
Although the fans do not lower air temperatures by causing breezes in indoor cultivation, they help the plants not suffocate and thus also prevent the appearance of fungi since by moving the air, the leaves and branches of the plants also circulate moisture indoors. yes, you use a dehumidifier to lower humidity levels, keep the fan off when the lights are also off since that can cause humidity to rise and we don’t want that.
With this point we begin to end this saga of articles on indoor cultivation. We leave the selection of the cannabis seeds for the end, since in our opinion it is one of the most important points when it comes to wanting to grow indoors. Today, you can get a great variety of cannabis seeds in our store and it is likely that you do not know which ones to choose. For the same reason, we are going to guide you, so that you have the best indoor cultivation.
We all know that autoflowering seeds are very fast to grow since their life cycle is between 8-10 weeks from seed to harvest, ensuring that you will get good flowers with rich flavors and good potency. Yes, you are thinking of cultivating autoflowering cannabis genetics, we recommend that you do a mono crop, that is, that you cultivate the same genetics, with which you will be able to make a homogeneous cannabis crop and thus maximize the yield of your plants and space. where you farm.
Somango x Sweet Auto is a genetics of compact size, mostly indica, easy to grow and a super short flowering period that only takes 6-8 weeks. During this time you will see how the buds develop that have sweet and fruity flavors, those that produce energetic and creative effects, leaving you in a cloud 420
When you are looking for high yields in autoflowering genetics, it is best to select “XL” type seeds, which will ensure good production and larger plant sizes. On the contrary, if you want more compact plants you can select autoflowering genetics with a more indica tendency or smaller size with which you generally get a robust central stem, full of buds and some side branches with heavy flowers.
For gardeners who are looking for new experiences and dream of making their own crosses, to produce seeds at home, then the regular varieties are indicated, since with them you get male and female plants, the males being the ones who give you pollen with which the females are pollinete and the new seeds are obtained. In addition to that, regular seeds are characterized by delivering stronger and more resistant plants from which beautiful and robust clones and flowers with unique organoleptic characteristics can be obtained, with highly defined aroma, flavor and smell patterns.
Of the regular genetics, NYC Diesel is one of the favorites of cannabis growers, as it is part of the old school of weed strains. This sativa variety, which has levels of 17%-21%THC, is ready to be harvested after 10-12 weeks of flowering, and you can apply cultivation techniques such as scrog to maximize the harvest.
On the contrary, if what you are looking for is speed and large harvests, then yours are the Fast Version weed seeds, which have the qualities of their parents, that is, they maintain the flavor, the aromas and the effects are identical, but with shorter flowering times, saving gardeners up to 2 weeks in this cycle.
Helfire Fast Version is a super fast and photodependent cannabis genetics, with which you save 2 weeks of cultivation and get great harvests with incredible buds with herbal flavors of pine and spicy. The flowering of these genetics is 6-8 weeks, a time in which the buds mature and are covered with a thick resin that is special for making medicinal-type extracts since it helps people who suffer from migraines, anxiety, and chronic pain.
Fast Version strains are great producers and you can maximize yields by applying cultivation techniques such as LST to stretch the side arms and thus promote bud growth and explosion. Don’t forget that you can make SOG with plants that come from Fast Version seeds, especially those that are mostly indica, to enhance the production of the central buds that tend to grow robust and heavy, full of buds. If you want to know how to grow Fast Version plants, mostly sativas, indoor, we will tell you that the best thing is to make SCROG with which you will have uniform lateral arms, which will rise below the mesh and develop large colas that make a much higher harvest heavier and more abundant.
To finish, we tell you that Feminized cannabis strains are the favorites of many gardeners since they concentrate high levels of cannabinoids such as THC or CBD, in the case of medicinal varieties, and are also rich in terpenes, delivering amazing aromas and exquisite flavors. In our Blimburn seeds store, you will find both classic and modern feminized genetics, some high in THC, others fast-flowering or also heavy harvests, among many others.
Gushers with 22%-25% THC is a super potent cannabis strain that relaxes you and leaves you in a deep cloudy high. In addition, its caramel flavor with earthy notes and sweet aftertastes is exquisite and is felt in each puff. But that’s not all, since Gushers is easy to grow and we recommend them to novice gardeners who want to increase their cultivation level, since being more indica it has a pine size and it is possible to do pruning and LST estimations to improve its production.
Remember that Feminized cannabis seeds depend on the photoperiod, therefore, it is always good to grow them indoor following a strict lighting cycle, with which you will obtain succulent harvests and beautiful buds. Another important point is that there are Feminized genetics that are better suited to indoor or outdoor cultivation, therefore, it is always good to know which ones to use for each space and select the genetics for indoor, in order to avoid problems as the crop progresses.
With this last point we come to the end of these articles for indoor cultivation. Surely, you will optimize or improve your indoor cultivation with the advice that we give you in the articles, so that you can have more and better harvests in each crop. See you in the next blog and don’t forget that at Blimburn seeds you will find the best seeds, always with the guarantee of our bank, with discreet, safe and fast shipments.
