FLOWERING

The the plant will be induced to fruit or flower with dark cycles of 11-13 hours that simulate the oncoming winter in the fall as the days grow shorter. As a consequence, it works out well indoors to have two separate areas; one that is used for the initial vegetative state and one that is […]

The advantages of growing outdoors

Outdoor cultivation requires less equipment, expertise and labour. For the first few weeks of life, outdoor plants need the same care and attention as indoor ones. However, once a few basics have been well established, outdoor plants may be left (in a good, sunny spot) to take care of themselves. They may need to be […]

TEMPERATURE

Proper temperature is one highly variable factor. Most books state optimum grow temperature to be 70-80 degrees, but many list extenuating circumstances that allow temperatures to go higher. Assuming genetics is not a factor, hemp plants seem to be able to absorb more light at higher temps, perhaps up to 90 degrees. High light and […]

HYDROPONICS

Most growers report that a hydroponic system will grow hemp plants faster than a soil medium, given the same genetics and environmental conditions. This may be due to closer attention and more control of nutrients, and more access to oxygen. The hemp plants can breath easier, and therefor, take less time to grow. One report […]

Nutrient deficiency: Magnesium (Mg)

Summary Magnesium is a vital element for humans, plants and animals. Among other things it is a building block for chlorophyll in plants so it is essential for photosynthesis and it also plays an important role in a number of metabolic processes. Magnesium compounds have been used since antiquity in medicine for heartburn, against poisoning […]
