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 […]
