How To

  • Forcing Outdoor Plants to Flower

    Light control is a fact of life for indoor growers, however it can be helpful for outdoor growers too. Those in climates where summers are relatively short, may find it useful to induce early flowering to ensure that there is enough daylight for the flowering cycle to complete before winter really sets in. Growers in gentler climates may find force-flowering provides them with a means to benefit from two harvests rather than just one. Covering plants may also help city-based growers who have to contend with light pollution. Continue reading

  • Using fans and ventilation for your grow

    Very small set-ups can work without the use of fans, although they will still require some sort of ventilation, but if you are using anything more than 1 CFL lamp, you will also need to look at air circulation, which generally means a combination of fans (to draw in and circulate air), filters (to remove the smell) and ducts (to remove stale air). Continue reading

  • How to Avoid Over-Stretching and Over-Heating

    Generally speaking, growers want their marijuana plants to grow big and beautiful, and provide the biggest yield possible. However, sometimes plants can become too high, quickly cramping out a grower’s space and possibly even causing harm to the plants. This is known as over-stretching, and while over-heating is one cause, it’s not the only one. It’s important that growers are aware of the problem so they can be on the lookout for it, try to prevent it, and know how to fix it if over-stretching does occur. Continue reading

  • Low Stress Training (LST), What is it?

    Low stress training is essentially a gentle way of training plants into a specific shape. The technique has two aims. Firstly, to encourage the formation of buds, hence increasing yield. Secondly it aims to keep plants in the optimum shape for their growing area. For example, those working in smaller spaces may use low stress training to be able to fit in the maximum number of plants. There are no real drawbacks to LST other than that it takes a bit of practice. It can be used with pretty much any strain and is the only method suitable for managing the growth of autoflowering strains as they go through their lifecycle too quickly for conventional topping to work. Continue reading

Many growers, especially beginners, are intimidated at the thought of cloning but the process can actually be even easier than growing a plant from seed. Continue reading

    When growing just about any plant, you’ll likely need to transplant it at least once, and this is also true for marijuana. Transplanting can be a delicate process and if not done correctly, it can lead to yellow and withering leaves. In cases when the transplanting process results in a great loss of root or soil, the entire plant can be lost. Continue reading
