Feeding the Cannabis Plant

For a cannabis plant to grow, blossom in good health and produce high yields, it demands to be well fed with required nutrients and watered properly. If this is not done properly or done at all, the cannabis plant is either bound to yield low-quality cannabis or wither out and die. Feeding and watering a cannabis plant is supposed to be done strategically and requires knowledge. An organically grown and fed cannabis is better than one grown chemically because this is a plant that you will smoke later and can have adverse effects on your health.

Before cannabis seeds have grown roots

Well, below is a guide on how often to feed and water a cannabis plant for quality and healthy yields. If you plant cannabis seeds in organic soil, the soil should be watered a little hence wet. Organic soil naturally contains Nitrogen, Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Sulphur which are vital components for a plant to grow. Nitrogen is responsible for the growth of the seed in its early stage, before sprouting. This soil also contains compost manure, hummus and a variety of warms species that are all responsible for the growth of the cannabis seeds.

Before cannabis seeds have grown roots and a shoot, they should not be fed on any chemical nutrients as they have everything they need. If fed, the seeds could die because they are not strong enough to withstand too many nutrients. At this stage, you should ensure that the soil is not dry but always wet so the seeds have enough water. When the cannabis seeds start to shoot and the plant is about 3-inches long, it should be fed low doses of Grow Nutrients. These nutrients are mainly composed of high Nitrogen levels.

Phosphorus helps in building healthy branches,

You may mix these nutrients with water and feed the cannabis plants through watering thrice a week if the plants are outdoors and twice a week if indoors. The Grow nutrients build up the cannabis plants healthily and efficiently until they are about 7-8 inches long then you can switch to Bloom nutrients that are rich in phosphorus. Bloom nutrients are strong and effective enough to facilitate the growth of cannabis plants through to the maximum stage which is harvesting.

Phosphorus helps in building healthy branches, flowers and cannabis buds and is also responsible for the overall yields. Bloom nutrients can be transformed into liquid form hence making them soluble in water. They should be mixed with water following the instructions given then fed to the cannabis plant by watering. At this stage, the cannabis plants definitely consume more water than before and hence should be watered regularly. For instance, five times if the plants are outdoors and thrice-weekly if the plants are indoors.

Feeding the Cannabis Plant

You are probably asking yourself, how do you know the right time to water the cannabis plants? This is how. The soil at the top should be dry for at least 1 and a half inches downwards for you to water the plant. Another way is that you should lift the container that you have planted cannabis after watering and definitely, it will be heavy. After some time, lift it again and if it is light, it means that the cannabis plant needs more water. There are soil-less forms of planting cannabis like Coco-Coir and Rockwool.

These forms are manufactured with enough ready nutrients to facilitate the growth of a cannabis plant from planting to harvesting. After planting cannabis seeds in these soil-less forms, the seed acquires all nutrients it requires for growth. The cannabis plant then shoots and all it requires is a lot of water because the soil-less forms lose water quickly and the plant also consumes a lot of water. You may be required to water more regularly than in organic soil, for instance every day.

Another form of soil for planting cannabis is called Super-soil which has all required nutrients within. This is a manufactured form that feeds the plant from planting to harvesting day. All that is required of you is to plant the seeds and water them regularly. These manufactured modes of planting cannabis produce high yields and cannabis does not take a lot of time to fully develop compared to planting in natural organic soil. The cons of these manufactured forms are that they are expensive and not entirely natural.

Feeding and watering a cannabis plant is mandatory for you to get high quality and quantity yields. If planning on cultivating cannabis you should be ready to invest money, time and energy. Properly fed cannabis plants are guaranteed to yield amazing quality and quantity hence satisfaction to you.
