If you're a cannabis enthusiast, you'll probably already know that dense weed is what all growers should aim for when they're cultivating their crops. This is because dense weed means more product and a good quality product at that. To produce dense marijuana buds though, growers need to make sure they are extra cautious with their grow and maintain an optimal growing environment for the duration of the whole process, from germination to harvest. Here are some tips to help you keep your buds nice and dense:
Lighting is a major factor that can affect how well your plants develop. The best thing to do in terms of lighting is to make sure your plants receive enough to thrive, but not too much so as that they suffer from heat damage, this can happen if you keep your lights too close to your crops. You can test if you're lights are too close by placing your hand over the top of one of your cannabis plants, and if it's too hot for you, then it's too hot for your plants. You may also be surprised to know that the color of your lights can influence plant growth too. For example, red enhanced lights work well during the flowering stage.
Temperature is also a factor that can also really impact your bud negatively if you don't keep an eye on it, and so it's important that you check it consistently to ensure it is within the correct range. Temperatures should never go above 30℃, and instead should be exposed only to climates of 18℃ - 26℃. if a plant gets too hot or too cold, this can seriously harm the flowering process.
Over or underdoing it with the feeding and watering of your plants can also be a huge problem. Every strain is, of course, different and thus, each has different feeding requirements, so the best thing you can do in terms of nutrition is to research exactly what it is specifically that you plant needs. Although, generally speaking, weed plants enjoy increased nitrogen levels in the vegetative stage and high potassium levels during the flowering phase. In regard to watering, excessive water runs the risk of drowning your plant's roots and starving them of hydration, and so it's important to remember to check to see if you plant needs water first before watering them. An easy way to do this is to pick up the pot and examine its weight if it's on the heavier side then it is likely hydrated enough.
Have The Patience
Growing marijuana to the level of expertise where dense buds are produced consistently is a big challenge, but it can be done.
