Growing marijuana indoors is becoming very common especially in countries where pot growing and selling are not yet legalized. It has become a favorite pastime of several marijuana enthusiasts who are growing cannabis either for medical purposes or for recreational use. We know that sunlight is the natural and best source of light for cannabis growing but in places where natural sunlight is not abundant, pot gardeners prefer to grow marijuana indoors.
Every marijuana grower is aiming to obtain high amount of yield during harvest period. The amount of yield that weed plants produce will depend on different factors. Growing outdoors will give large yield because of the abundant sunlight that the plants are receiving. Now, if you are growing cannabis plants indoors, then how much can you expect during harvest time? The amount of harvest expected from marijuana plants grown indoors will depend on several factors.
Factors That Affect the Amount of Yield Produced By Indoor Weed Plants
The amount of buds produced will actually depend on the type of strain you have chosen to grow. Depending on the genetics, some strains can produce up to 400-700 grams or more when growing weed indoors.
Sex of Marijuana Plants
Only female marijuana plants will produce buds. Growing marijuana with male characteristics (hermaphrodites) will produce lesser yield. Once male weed plants are detected in your indoor weed garden, pull them out as soon as possible before they get the chance to pollinate with the female ones. If you want higher yield, then growing marijuana seeds that are feminized is recommended.
Temperature and Ventilation
Growing weed plants in a well-ventilated indoor garden having the right level of humidity and temperature will produce healthier marijuana plants that can give excellent amount of yield.
Water and Fertilizers
Providing marijuana plants with the basic and secondary nutrients will promote stronger roots and overall healthy and fast growth. However, giving them too much of these fertilizers and over-watering your plants will cause harm. Too much fertilizer may burn the top of your weed plants.
Indica Yield versus Sativa Yield
The amount of yield produced will also depend on the type of marijuana you are growing-either indica or sativa. Indica pot plants produce higher yield as compared to sativa types and are usually grown inside because of its short height.
Amount of harvest that a gardener growing weed can obtain will depend on a variety of factors. Genetics is one. The medium used, amount of water given, fertilizers, ventilation, temperature, type of weed (sativa or indica) and sex of the marijuana plants are some of the factors that can influence amount of yield.
