Weed Growing Tips: Soil, Water, and Nutrients

Growing cannabis indoors is a process with many things that should be carefully reviewed. Even professional growers can face difficulties, as marijuana plants never follow the rules. Check out this tutorial to improve your cultivation skills or, if you are a beginner, to make a good start.

Which soil and containers to choose

If you have limited space for indoor growing, the best option for you will be simple containers with some openings in the bottom, which are designed for drainage. Besides, try to find containers with vents in its sides or those that are made of breathable materials, like fabric, as they will be excellent at aerating the growing environment. As soon as you have chosen the containers, you are ready for finding the proper soil. There is no doubt that every grower seeks for monster marijuana plants and huge potent harvest. The soil is definitely one of the keys to success. We recommend using earth soils or soil-less mixtures, like organic compost. When choosing the soil, draw your attention to its content, as many outdoor soils are full of bacteria. Sure, you do not want to grow your weed in the soil that is not sterilized, right? Many experienced growers choose such brands as Sunshine and Pro-Mix brands, as they ideally suit small grow systems, which are also hand-watered. Besides, if you have a top-feed system, these soils will also work great. Though, too much water can result in the compacting of the growing environment, which will prevent aeration and cause root rotting.


Any grower faces a dilemma when they plan to grow weed indoors: whether to use the synthetic canna nutrients or the organic ones. The point is that organic nutrients are connected with many issues that need to be considered, including the decision to feed marijuana plants directly or to use the not sterilized garden soil and let it feed the plants naturally. The beginners prefer the easiest way to grow gigantic plants—to use nutrients. Here is the only thing you should keep in mind: Less is best. You can always add a bit more, but you can never take the nutrients back.
