Cultivating cannabis plants is easier than it ever has been. With advancements in growing technology and wider availability of information, you can easily grow your clones into healthy cannabis plants from the comfort of your own home.
If you’re interested in growing your own cannabis plants from clones at home, here are five care tips to follow.
You want to make sure you have your supplies ready before your clones arrive. Putting your clones under pressure without preparation for too long could spoil their growth. You’ll need to have the following items at a minimum:
When your clones arrive from Big Daddy Clones get them in their growing location as soon as possible, especially if you live in a hot or cold climate. This sort of goes along with our first tip, but it’s important enough to stress again. Don’t linger in starting the process once your clones arrive.
Plan on growing your clones indoors so that you can have complete control over the environment. The normal lifetime of a cannabis plant consists of two cycles, including the vegetative cycle and the flowering cycle. During the vegetative cycle, your plant should receive 18 hours of light and six hours of darkness every day.
During the flowering cycle, you can adjust this schedule to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness to emulate summer.
Clones love red and blue light spectrums, which help them root and grow. When placing your lights, you want to make sure that they are close enough to allow your plants enough room to photosynthesize, though far enough away so that they won’t burn or dry out your plants.
Keep a close eye on your plants to see if they are yellowing. Yellow leaves often tell you that you’re lighting is too strong. If any leaves yellow or start to curl up, make sure to discard them so that the rest of your plant can continue growing healthily.
As your clone matures, you will need to make adjustments to your watering schedule. You will find plenty of helpful resources online for identifying the stage your clone is in, as well as what to provide it with during those stages.
There is nothing quite as rewarding as growing your own cannabis plants from scratch. Plus, you’ll save tons of money over the course of your lifetime with your own plants at your disposal. The initial investment might cost you a bit, though once you have things up and running, you’ll be growing plants like a pro in no time!
