Miracle grow cannabis

The biggest problem with the standard Miracle-Gro nutrient formula is that it’s one formula for the entirety of the plant’s life cycle. Even if the standard Miracle-Gro plant food is decent for the first stage of your plant’s growth, it won’t be good for the budding/flowering phase. The ratio of nutrients your plants need changes drastically between seedling and full flower. Marijuana grows best with a nutrient system that accommodates their changing nutrient needs.

Do not use “Miracle-Gro” soil or any soil that has “extended release” nutrients for growing cannabis. These types of soil will continue to release nitrogen to your plant roots for up to 6 months. This can cause deficiencies or burn your cannabis plants in the flowering/budding stage, reducing your overall yields. I have seen growers successively grow cannabis in Miracle Gro, but many of them struggled with nutrient problems in the flowering stage (like the following) even though plants were healthy throughout the vegetative stage.

Many of us have grown up seeing Miracle-Gro being used in our homes, so we know that it works for ‘regular houseplants’. Cannabis is just a tough weed, so Miracle-Gro should be great for it, right?

What’s worse than the standard Miracle-Gro nutrients is the original Miracle-Gro soil. Standard Miracle-Gro soil has “time-released” nutrients which contain high levels of nitrogen. While this formula will work okay in the cannabis vegetative stage (the first stage of life), the nutrients will continue to be slowly released throughout the plant’s life including during the cannabis flowering stage, which is not good.

Here’s what you need to keep in mind when growing with bagseed…

Weed can be successfully grown in an Aerogarden, that has already been established. But the reason the Aerogarden makes this list is due to the impracticality of growing weed in it.

Some guy on an internet forum showed me a super-secret trick that he learned from his neighbor’s cousin who is a master grower…

I personally recommend avoiding nutrient burn if possible. In my experience, plants that are “pushed to the limit” with nutrients don’t seem to grow faster than plants given a standard amount of nutrients.

Myth #6 “More Nutrients = Faster Growth”

The Topsy Turvy is designed for plants with hanging fruit, like tomatoes. It is not suitable for growing cannabis plants. Cannabis plants don’t hang. Instead, they will constantly try to grow upward against gravity.

The good news is, you can determine the sex of your plants by looking at their pre-flowers, which appear as early as 3 weeks from germination. They will have appeared on just about all plants by the time they’re 6 weeks old, even if the plant is still in the vegetative stage! You can also start with feminized seeds from a reputable breeder, which guarantees that 99.9% of plants end up being female.

Re-Vegging Plant – Leaves Start Growing Single Points in the Flowering Stage. Not Good!

Myth #2 “You should urinate on your cannabis plants to give them extra nutrients.”

Male plants don’t grow THC-filled buds, and simply smoking the pollen sacs or leaves won’t have much effect because overall THC levels are low. Although there may be some THC in the plant tissue, the main way to get THC from a male plant is to extract trichomes that grow on the leaves and sides of pollen sacs.

Let’s just start with this: do not keep male plants unless your goal is to have them pollinate your female plants. Pollination results in seedy buds, lowered yields, and in bad cases, the potency is also affected.
