Cannabis is a very resilient plant in many ways. However, that does not mean that it is always easy to achieve a good grow. Many beginners out there tend to make very similar mistakes. We often receive emails from customers with pictures of their plants, asking us what they did wrong.
To help you avoid these mistakes altogether, we want to provide you with the top three mistakes that cannabis growers often make.
One of the mistakes that we see most often from new growers is overfeeding. New growers tend to want things done as quickly as possible. They want to grow the biggest plants they can in the shortest amount of time. Because we are animals, our instinct is often to feed so that we get growth and strength. However, when it comes to growing cannabis, this attitude is a surefire way to overfeed your plants.
Similar to humans, overfeeding is never a good thing.
There are two types of nutrients out there: organic and non-organic. The organic side of nutrients includes compost, manure, and other refined minerals found in soil. To avoid overfeeding, we highly recommend using these materials, as they release nutrients very slowly.
Lack of Climate Control
Cannabis requires special care when it comes to temperature and humidity. No matter whether you have indoor or outdoor grow, it is important to be aware of the climate. If it is too cold outside, then it is possible to stunt your plants’ growth or kill them altogether. On the other hand, if you set the temperature too hot, you will stress your plants out. The leaves will likely curl up to try and hide from the light.
The best temperature for your plants is 75 degrees Fahrenheit during the daytime and in the upper 50s at nighttime. For seedlings, humidity is okay, though make sure that you decrease the humidity level as the plant continues growing.
Harvesting Too Early
As a grower, it is important to practice patience. You need to wait for the perfect time to harvest your cannabis, even though the wait can feel like torture at times. Harvesting too early can reduce the size of the plant and its potency.
One tip to remember is that if the trichome hairs are white and sticking out straight, it is too early to harvet.
Final Thoughts – Growing Your Plants Optimally
Growing cannabis is a skill that you have to master with time and experience. For new growers trial and error are necessities. Our best advice is to pay attention and observe your plants to see when they are doing good and when they aren’t looking too hot.
