How to grow cannabis
When will my cannabis plant start having buds?
In most cases, after 3 weeks of flowering, the cannabis plant begins to form buds. By then the plant will have reached its maximum height and the buds will start to take shape, eventually providing you with weed. Autoflowering seeds already start flowering after two weeks.
When will my plant need a more powerful/different lamp?
For the growth phase of the plant you will need different lamps than for the flowering period. We strongly recommend the use of LED lamps and High Pressure Natrium lamps for the growth phase with whiter colors and for the flowering phase to use more conventional lighting of a warmer intensity.
If the side branches are exposed to more light, will they grow faster?
Yes, if the side branches are exposed to more light they will grow much faster. One of the ways to get better light exposure for the side branches is to practice pruning at the main buds of your cannabis plant.
If I need to add nutrients to my cannabis plant, what kind of nutrients can I add and when should I add them?
There are two types of nutrients for your cannabis plants: growth additives and flowering additives. The amount and type of nutrients is highly dependent on the type of soil used for planting your marijuana plant. During the growth period we recommend adding liquid root fertilizer. Always check the information provided on the packaging for the quantities to use, they are different for each brand and type of product. In the flowering period, you have to switch to flowering fertilizer, there is also a wide variety of manufacturers and with different properties. One of the most widely used fertilizers today is the PK 13/14 flowering fertilizer, a mixture of phosphorus and calcium that stimulates flowering and the formation of buds. Take care to always check the quantities.

Once the seed has germinated and is visible on the ground, it will need light. In the first pre-growth phase you will provide 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness to your marijuana plants. Your plants need a lot of light at the beginning of growth to be able to develop well in height and width.

If I grow my cannabis outdoors, do I need to add fertilisers?
Yes, outdoor production basically has the same methods as indoor production. Aside from the fact that you can’t control the climatic conditions, you will also have to adapt the nutrients of your plants to their needs. If your plants are exposed to many hours of sunlight, they will also require more additives. Read here more about the pros and cons of outdoor culture.
In the case of outdoor planting, should I plant them in a pot or directly in the ground?
Each of the methods has its advantages and disadvantages. The advantage of planting in pots is that you can move your plants around, adapting to the best climatic conditions. On the other hand, you will need to continue adding fertilizers during the container growth period due to the limits of the soil contained in the container, so the plant will not be able to develop properly without sufficient external inputs. A great advantage of growing cannabis outdoors and directly in the ground is that you won’t have to add a lot of fertilizers and the plant will have enough space to develop its roots and grow quickly. The only problem with this method is in the event of heavy rain or a thunderstorm, the buds could be damaged by humidity or mold.
