8 Tips for Indoor Cannabis Cultivation

1. Pot Quality Cannabis Seeds

Before you invest a lot of time and money into growing marijuana plants you should ensure that you choose top quality cannabis seeds to start your indoor growing operation. After all, the end result of your growing operation will depend a lot on the seeds you plant.  Things like genetics, authenticity, shipping and storage conditions, and many other factors are important to the quality of a cannabis seed and, in turn, the outcome and output of your growing operation. For this reason, it's critical that you always do your research, and never use seeds from a source that is untrusted or you know little about.  Instead source seeds for your indoor growing operation from a local medical marijuana dispensary.  Alternatively, if no trusted local cannabis seed supplier can be located, buy seeds from a reputable online seed bank that has been around and earned a reputation for having quality weed seeds.

2. Keep Your Intentions Private

Seeing the results of your labor will no doubt give you a sense of pride. You might be tempted to share your success with the world but you must not! Only the people in your home should know of your plans and if there is someone there that you cannot fully trust don’t pot weed plants indoors. Giving people the license to share your information by telling them your plans can have detrimental results so keep your mouth shut.

3. Keep Your Grow Area Clean

Your crop will be vulnerable to pests and diseases so you must keep everything clean. Wash your hands thoroughly before handling cannabis plants and make sure that you keep your tools clean to maintain the pest and disease free environment that your marijuana plants need.

4. Quality Soil is Key

Your plants need quality soil in order to flourish. Start with good quality soil and add the essential mix of nutrients that the plant requires (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium, most plant foods have a nice 20-20-20 mix and will work well) making sure to maintain a pH of 6.5 which is ideal for the marijuana plant.

5. Don’t Overdo The Water

Plants need water but adding too much water will kill your young plants. Check the soil for moisture by sticking your fingers at least 5 inches deep and if you do not detect moisture you can water the plants. Tap water should be allowed to sit for 24 hours before adding to the plants to allow for the removal of harmful sediments.

6. Don’t Overdo The Fertilizer

Many inexperienced marijuana growers make the common mistake of adding too much fertilizer to the plant. Add only the nutrients that your plant needs and add these nutrients only when the plant is in need of them. During the vegetative stage of the growing cycle you will need to add more Nitrogen whereas Phosphates are more important in the flowering stage.

7. Maintain an Indoor Environment that is Optimum for Cannabis Growth

Grow room lighting, temperature, humidity and the overall care that you give to your marijuana plants will determine the outcome of indoor growing operations. Keep these variables constant in order to give the cannabis plants the very best environment that they need to flourish.

8. Don’t Harvest before the Plant Is Ready

Yes, I know you can’t wait to enjoy the fruits of your labor but if you’re patient you will enjoy even more fruits! You’ll know that it is time to harvest when the pistils change from white to brown or orange. After you’ve harvested you can put the plants to dry and enjoy your crop of indoor grown marijuana.

Where to Buy Recreational Marijuana | Colorado Retail Dispensaries

Colorado Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries As of January 1st, 2014, the sale of recreational marijuana to anyone 21 and above is legal in Colorado.  Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, a handful of medical marijuana (MMJ) dispensaries now sell recreational pot to Colorado residents that don't have a MMJ license (AKA Red Card).

 Even though it's legal under state law to buy recreational marijuana in Colorado without a MMJ card, a number of cities have voted to ban the sale of recreational marijuana. Below is a list of Colorado cities that have bans on recreational marijuana dispensaries.

Jack Herer Strain Review | Marijuana Strain Information

Jack Herer Cannabis Strain ReviewJack Herer strain, named in honor of pro-cannabis and hemp activist, and author of two books including The Emperor Wears No Clothes, which has since been used in several efforts to decriminalize the use of cannabis.

Jack Herer Strain is a sativa dominant hybrid Haze crossed with Red Skunk Strain.  The buds of Jack Herer marijuana are a distinct, light green tone.  The smell is one of a citrus haze coupled with a slight scent of the classic fresh cannabis skunk scent.  The buds themselves are fairly dense, thick nugs, that can easily be broken up with ones hands.  Not only did Jack Herer's dedication to promote pro-marijuana legislation earn him his own signature marijuana strain, but in 2003 he was inducted into the Counter Culture Hall of Fame at the 16th Annual High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.

The Jack Herer marijuana strain is a unique cross.  It's not difficult to tell that Jack Herer is a Sativa dominant marijuana strain.  However, d…

What's The Difference Between F1, F2, and F3 Weed Strain Seeds?

Just as with common flowers or other household plants (roses, pea plants, etc...), Cannabis seed strains can be grown and crossbred. This is usually done for the purpose of developing new breeds with different characteristics such as the size of the plant, yield, taste, effect, bud to leaf ratio, or other specific traits that the grower desires. As this cross breeding continues, the plants end up forming different weed strain seeds, or generations. These are often described as being either F1, F2, or F3. In order to really make some informed seed purchase decisions it is very helpful to understand the differences between these various seed strains.




F1 Seeds: The First Breeding: An F1 seed variety is created by breeding together two pure strains. For example, a tall plant (represented with two dominant genes, AA) is bred with a small plant (represented by the two small recessive genes, aa). Since the resulting plants will each receive one gene from each parent, this will result in offs…
