Growing marijuana can be done both outdoors and indoors depending on the strain. Legalities concerning its growth must be considered. Keeping them away from the prying eye of neighbors and authorities is of importance. Growing them inconspicuously should be thought of not setting aside the quality of the yield.
Knowing if there is marijuana in the place is something that humans cannot discern automatically. Senses fail us and we have to rely on other creatures to do the detection for us. The most common animal that we use to find marijuana are dogs. Policemen train them in order to identify scents and locate its source since their olfactory nerves are far superior compared to us.
However, just because police are involved, it automatically involves bad things. There are some states wherein marijuana is legalized. If you want to grow weeds in your country, here are some of the things that you need to know.
Where to grow them
There are two ways on how you could grow cannabis. One is by growing them outdoors. The reason for this is that marijuana needs as much light as it could get because it is dependent on it for plant production and photosynthesis.
However, growing them outdoors has its risks. One is the unpredictable environment. This includes the weather and the pets of your neighbor, if you have one.
As an option for this, you could opt to grow pot indoors. However, make sure not to just place them outside the window as a means for them to get sunlight. If you are going to grow them indoors, you must buy lights.
Make sure you are legally growing it or discreetly growing it if being legal is impossible
This is legal in some states and most of the times, all you need is just a medical certification in order to legitimize your production. Make sure to keep this document so that in the times wherein policemen and their dogs detect your plants through its scent, you will not have to go through several bureaucratic processes.
However, if you want to grow even without considering the legalities then make sure to do it discreetly.
Find the essentials for growing pot.
There are several things you need to get before you could actually grow marijuana. One of which is the fertilizer. Marijuana is highly sensitive; therefore, one must ensure the Nitrogen to Phosphorous to Potassium (NPK) ratio for it.
You also need to make sure that your plants have proper irrigation or watering system. Plants need such in order to thrive and survive. Make sure that you do not drown your plants in the process by finding a drainage system for it.
Air is also highly important for pots because they need carbon dioxide in order to grow. Make sure that your room is properly ventilated if you are to grow them indoors.
Set aside time for them.
Growing marijuana needs a lot of time and attention because they have a short lifespan compared to other plants. You need to keep in mind when they will germinate, flower, and be ripe for harvest. You also need to prune and trim them from time to time. Just make sure that you do it at the right amount because you might kill the plant in the process if you overdo it.
Ultimately, do not make them root bound as their roots are fast in growing the said part.
