How to maximize the cannabis yield
There are two main strains of cannabis plants: Indica and Sativa. Indicas stay relatively small, have strong, thick stems and wide leaves and have a short flowering period. Sativas on the other hand grow very tall. The often rapid growth leads to smaller leaves. Next to these main strains there are many hybrid strains/crosses. These mainly consist of a bigger part of Indica with a tiny bit of Sativa or the other way round. You can also choose auto flowering seeds, which make it very easy for you to grow a plant. Everyone has their own opinion about which strain is the best, but it’s all about your personal preference. Whichever choice you make, it’s always a good choice.
As many have said weed is fairly easy to grow however getting that the yield that you want can be tricky. PH is VERY important. Light power is important to the size of the buds and soil area is directly dependent to the final size of your plant. Like aquarium fish actually.
You can opt for growing your plants in open ground. Your plants will be able grow a lot taller, but you will be dependent on good weather conditions. Cannabis plants only start flowering in late summer and if the weather is rainy and cold your crop will fail. Plants in pots stay smaller, but you are able to control the growing conditions. You can for instance put them in the shade or inside. It’s a trade-off you have to make for yourself. If you want to grow your plant in a pot, you will have to buy a suitable pot. Pots are available in various sizes. The size you need depends on the size you wish your plant to reach and the available space.
You also need soil to put in the pots. The choice is abundant. You can opt for the cheap bags of soil you can find in the garden centers. It’s possible to grow your plant in this, but beginners might experience problems with it. These types of soil do not contain enough nutrients for cannabis plants, are not light enough and dry and harden very easily.
By increasing the light you will allow you plant to grow upwards toward the source of light. This can lead to large spaces on the stem between nodes and leaves, or perhaps even growing tall enough to fall over.
Tall, lanky plants are not the type of plants that are going to get you a high yield – bushier plants will. Once these stretched out plants have reached their flower phase, it will be difficult to get them an adequate amount of light to increase their bud growth. To keep it simple, more light intensity leads to more (and bigger) buds. It’s, therefore, easy to understand why it’s such an important factor for your marijuana garden.
The easiest way to increase the intensity of light without increasing the temperature of the room is to move the light closer to the plant. Be careful not to move it too close so as not to burn the tips of the leaves. Ensure that each of the buds is exposed completely to a high-intensity light that is even all around the plant. Giving any marijuana plant more light is the best way to encourage buds to grow bigger and better.
Another way to maximize cannabis yield from cannabis seeds is by increasing CO2 levels. Increasing CO2 levels in your cannabis garden will allow your plants to create more energy – if you provide adequate lighting as well. Again, light is the second requirement to create energy for your plants, meaning you must match your CO2 levels with your lighting. However, before we dive into how this is done, there are a number of other considerations to make before investing in a CO2 system.
Genetics is one of the most important factors in producing a sturdy plant with big ol’ flowers. To achieve the biggest indoor yield, knowing how plant genetics can determine whether a plant grows tall or short, narrow or bushy, and flounder under improper conditions — even if the seeds are good — is a good place to start. And luckily for us, finding good seeds and clones have often become very easy. You will find a lot of resources online.
