One of the most critical decisions you would make on your weed cultivation journey is the decision of how and where to grow your weed. While the outdoors is the most likely choice for individuals who own land, for the people with small grow spaces, growing weed indoors is the most practical choice, although it is not unusual to find people who own vacant plots electing to grow weed indoors.

This article will explore a few tips to grow weed indoors and the best nutrients for growing weed indoors to achieve maximum yield and potency.

Growing Weed Indoors

Indoor weed cultivation can be a breeze or a daunting task, depending on how you approach it. Before we get into some of the tips that would make you a profitable farmer, it is important that you first consider the legal implications of growing weed in your local area. What does the law say? If your local laws permit home grow, then you are good go. If you require some form of licensing to grow your plant, we strongly advise you to approach your local authority and obtain the necessary permits before you get started.

If you’ve cleared the question of permits, then let’s get started.

Tip 1: Getting the right Seeds

Because your seeds can’t outperform their genetics, you can only get off on the right footing when you choose seeds with stable genetics. Bad seeds aren’t any good - they are often a waste of time, money, and resources. Getting the right seeds with the right genetics for your marijuana farm is the first step to achieving reasonable success in your farming endeavor. The right seeds would blossom with nurturing, producing good yields and strong potency. Smart farmers know to buy seeds only from reputable companies like Kannabia seeds.

Seed companies, like Kannabia seeds, are proven and highly reputable. They offer good seeds with stable genetics, strong potency, and profitable high yields. Kannabia seeds also provide a wide range of seed profiles to suit all taste buds. Click the link to browse through the catalog and buy here.

Tip 2: Lighting

Lighting is the second most important factor for indoor cannabis cultivation. Because you are planting indoors, where there is no sunlight, you need constant, stable lighting for your weed plant. The importance of adequate and proper lighting cannot be overemphasized. Because lighting is essential for the growing process, having the ability to control the lighting in your grow space ensures that your plant gets the right amount of light when they need it and darkness when it is desired.

Cannabis planted indoors require stable lighting for growth and, as they are cannabis plants, periods of extended darkness for flowering. Because of this, your grow space should also be light sealed. A grow space that is light sealed as possible guarantees the process of flowering for your plant and helps to avoid incidences of hermaphroditism in your farm.

Failing to provide a grow space with proper light sealing and light control can cause your plant to develop hermaphroditic characteristics or perform poorly. A hermaphrodite cannabis plant will only produce a flower that’s full of seeds, ruining your chances of a decent yield.

Tip 3: Nutrients

While weed is resilient, growing it in sub-optimal conditions means you will miss out on yield and potency. Unlike outdoor cultivation, where the plant derives its nutrients from the soil, you have to stimulate the plant by infusing nutrients into the pot soil or hydroponics for most indoor grows. Proper nutrient selection and application are amongst the most critical factors in growing premium-grade cannabis indoors.

Asides from using a nutrient energized soil mix (super soils, as most call it), you have the option of applying prepackaged macronutrients to your pot soil or hydroponic liquid in the case of hydroponic farms.

The best nutrients for growing weed indoors are the seven super macronutrients. And they are:

  • Nitrogen (N)
  • Phosphorous (P)
  • Potassium (K)
  • Calcium (Ca
  • Magnesium (Mg)
  • Iron (Fe)
  • Copper (Cu)

The specific ratios of each nutrient are determined by the strain of weed you are cultivating. Some weed strains may require more iron than others, and others may need more calcium to produce robust, healthy buds. The type and nature of your strain would, in essence, determine how you ration your super nutrients.

Tip 4: Keep Clean Always

Lastly, a clean space is one of the most important things to remember. Ensure that all areas of cultivation are kept clean and sanitized. Deal quickly with pests and remove all forms of contaminants from and around your grow spaces.

Marijuana plants are “bio-accumulators,” they absorb everything around them. Always keep clean, and if possible, develop a sanitization routine to keep the environment clean and stick to it.
