We all want big giant buds in our weed garden, right? I mean that is the whole point of this. There are lots of little tricks that the veteran marijuana farmer uses to help out with his plants and we're gonna cover some of these here today.
You have to remember that plants that are in the bud or flowering phase like different things than the plants in the vegetive growth stage. Plants in veg like nitrogen for lush green growth in their leaves. Plants that are flowering like phosphorous and potassium to develop heavy buds and the stalks to support them. That is just one difference and you will find there are more with a little research. Just remember in the cannabis plants natural environment the summers are hot with long days and short nights. As we progress into fall and the beginning of winter the days become shorter and the nights become colder. The plant senses this and tapping into its will to go on and propogate more future plants it goes into this "flowering mode".
Temperature and humidity must be kept in check in the flowering phase of the marijuana plant. We like to keep the majority of our strains at about 75 degrees through flowering with the humidity coming in at about 40%. The lower humidity keeps mold from growing on your buds.
