Nowadays, cannabis seeds are available online in many places all around the world. So if you find yourself wondering how to grow weed and whether you would be able to do it, you are not alone. Of course, first you need to buy seeds at an online seedbank. But would it not be nice if they came with some kind of instruction, like “How to grow weed for dummies”? Unfortunately, they do not. That is why we are going to answer some questions you might have about the first cannabis cultivation experience.
Q.1 Which Strain Is Better for Growing at Home?
The most important part of growing weed is choosing the right type of weed seeds. Decide if you want to receive physical relaxation, an energy lift, or a combination of both effects. We are used to thinking that Sativas will make you actively high and Indicas will make you calm and sleepy, but nowadays gardeners face such a huge range of hybrids that they are spoiled for choice. Besides, today’s weed seeds do not require specific growing conditions, which dramatically simplifies the process.
Q.2 Where Should You Grow: Indoors or Outdoors?
If you have decided to grow weed outdoors, take into account that it is up to your climate to decide what will thrive and what will die immediately. Some strains do not tolerate cold weather, some cannot survive without wet summers. So, before you decide to spend a lot of money on seeds, be sure they will not freeze to death in cool weather. In warm areas with a high humidity level, avoid growing strains with dense buds and short spaces between the branches. The reason is high risk of bud rot.
If you have decided to grow weed indoors, you do not need to reach an understanding with nature. It is up to you to decide when to start the cultivation cycle and how big the plants will be. While growing weed indoors, such problem as light pollution does not take place. However, indoor growers face other problems such as the artificial maintenance of water level, light, temperature, humidity, and other very important conditions.
Q.3 What Is Hydroponic Gardening?
Hydroponic weed cultivating has the only difference from the usual growing process—a plant is grown in an inert medium, which means that the soil in which the plant is grown has no nutritional value. It is up to the gardener to provide the necessary amount of minerals to the plant to achieve the maximum possible result.
