What is it and how can it be improved?
Having a large, vigorous cannabis plant is every grower’s dream. The cannabis plant can withstand extreme conditions, but it takes a little love to grow properly like any other plant. Maintaining the right conditions for optimal growth should be a priority for any grower, especially if your main goal is to get dense buds.
The truth is that with a little effort you can grow a good quality plant. You just need to know the basics and be able to identify what your cannabis plant needs. It is advisable to read about different varieties, e.g. B. This evaluation of the gold leaf varieties, and choose which one best suits your needs.
Why is cannabis density so important?
Cannabis density is critical to better yields. You can look at two plants with the same number of flowers, but one of them has produced dense, nugget-shaped buds, and the others are thin and airy. When you collect the harvest, you’ll be happier with the first plant, won’t you? Both plants produced the same amount, but the first plant yields much greater than the others and you can enjoy twice as many joints.
Airy buds are sometimes referred to as “popcorn buds” because of their appearance and structure. A quality seller won’t even look at them, let alone consider buying or selling them. It’s grade B quality and you should only smoke it if you run out of good quality supplies. Below is some helpful information on how to make sure your buds are high quality and smokable.
The first step in growing excellent buds is choosing the right genetics. There are hundreds of different types and varieties, and each has a different effect. Some of them can help you relax while others keep you energized. You can divide strains into two most popular groups, indica and sativa dominant strains.
Sativa is native to warmer, more humid climates. They’re of course a little airier and looser to protect against rot and mold problems.
Indica varieties come from a much cooler, drier mountain environment. As a result, they bloom faster with tiger buds. Don’t just get into indica while shopping, however, as most of the strains on the market today are polyhybrids so you may find it difficult to find a pure one.
Every plant needs light to live, so cannabis is no different. The amount and type of lighting are a decisive factor for the quality system. New breeders sometimes struggle to pick a happy medium in their Blitz setup, making them either too weak or too strong. In addition, it is not just the intensity that is important. You need to know the distance to place it so it doesn’t burn your cannabis plants, but there is still enough light for the plant to thrive.
It all depends on the type of light used. With fluorescers or CFLs, you need to make sure they are placed as close to the plant as possible. On the other hand, LED grow lights come in different spacing and you always need to check with the manufacturer to find out.
The most popular type of lightning are HPS lights. They use energy extremely efficiently and still provide your plants with intense light. They offer the right color spectrum and don’t cost too much. Therefore, they are easy to use – especially for beginners.
Outdoor growers cannot adjust the sunlight, but they need to ensure the correct location of the plant. It needs to get at least eight or more hours of sunlight a day, but the light can’t be too strong as it can burn the leaves.
Nutrients are essential in every growth phase. Buds will not be fattened and dense unless you provide the plant with enough nutrients at the right time, which means there is little nitrogen (N) and a lot of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) in the flowering stage. Every fertilizer should inform you about the ratio of the nutrients it contains. You should use this information to help you decide how to feed your cannabis and to ensure adequate growth / density. Most of the time, having just one mix of nutrients is not enough as your plant needs different ratios at different stages of life.
The bottom line
Growing cannabis may be a time-consuming hobby, but you will be appropriately rewarded in the end. With more love and care, your cannabis will be of better quality and density, so the pleasure will be much greater. Most of the work on the system must be done at the start of your trip. With more experience, you can spend less and less time studying and knowing the most appropriate techniques.
For the best buds, think about the factors listed above and know when to harvest so you don’t harm your cannabis. The last stages of flowering are very important for bud development. As your plants continue to be pushed into bloom without pollination, they will fatten themselves up and develop a thick, rich resin. So be patient and enjoy your home grown cannabis!
