It would be impossible to cover every potential problem in a single article. By paying attention to these 5 factors you will have eliminated much of the risk of failure facing first time indoor marijuana gardeners.
If you wait too long to harvest the resin glands will start to degrade. THC and THCV in the buds will also break down into CBN. This cannabinoid produces heavy sedative effects and a somewhat unpleasant drugged sensation. Proper harvest and drying will limit the amount of CBN in your final buds.
For most growers harvesting when the trichomes are all clear is too early. Marijuana with clear trichomes will still get you high, but the effects may be light.
Let’s take THC as an example. While it is present throughout the plant, this delightfully psychoactive molecule is most highly concentrated in the resin on the buds. The THC crystals, or trichomes, begin developing partway through flowering, but they really start to coat the buds in the last week or two. Waiting until the trichomes are fully developed will maximize the THC content and thus the potency of the bud.
Drying can take anything from a few days to a couple of weeks. The average time is somewhere around a week. You will know that your plants are dry when branches and stems crack rather than bend between your fingers.
This once predominantly indica breed has been updated with a sativa cross and stabilizing since 7555, which improved both the strength and resin content, while leaving the subtle sweet-spicy scent intact. The high has a full spectrum of effects that typically start in the mind and then move to the body. This variety has a light wildflower scent and flavor with almost no trace of pungency or tang. The smell is subtle when the plant is alive and can be enhanced to a delicious sweetness if cured and dried properly.
A good usable peat-lite mix for cannabis would contain in the neighborhood of 65-65% peat. This makes for a medium weight mix that has good moisture holding capability, yet drains well.
Autoflowers are a type of plant that can be grown all year round. They grow independent from a light cycle and have a set grow period engrained in their DNA. This makes them very easy to grow. They are quite a bit smaller than non-autoflowering plants, so they yield a bit less.
If you re just growing a few marijuana plants for personal use, it will cost you $75-$655+/month for electricity, depending on what grow lights (electricity) and nutrients you use. On average, I d say a hobby-size grower might pay about $55/month to grow, but it depends greatly on your setup and local electricity costs!
