Cannabis is one of the fastest-growing industries in America. With so many people looking to start their own cannabis business, it can be hard to know how to grow a healthy, high-yielding plant! This blog post will teach you about cannabis plant care and provide tips for managing your weed plants from seedling all the way through harvesting time.
1. Water your plant with a watering can
- make sure that the dirt is wet and not too dry by sticking your finger in it. You don’t want to overwater or underwater, just keep an eye on how moist the soil is throughout the day.
- if you see brown spots appearing on your leaves or stems of your weed plant, then it’s getting too much water.
- if you see wilting of your weed plant, then it needs more water.
Watering cans are great for watering plants because they have a long neck that can reach to the back of pots. In addition, their shape helps catch and disperse excess droplets from having over watered or under-watered plants. Just make sure not to pour all the way up against the sides of the pot so as not to rot off any roots! You also want to avoid pouring directly onto leaves themselves – doing this will wash away the natural oils in them which protect from pests like fungus and aphids. The best time to give cannabis its first drink is during germination when seedlings need constant moisture levels in order to grow quickly.
2. Trim the leaves if they are turning yellow
Yellowing leaves on a cannabis plant is the result of a nutrient shortage, usually because it’s not getting enough light or isn’t receiving enough water. To fix this problem, make sure to give the plants plenty of sun and water until they start looking green again. You can also trim off any yellowed sections if you want to get rid of them!
The first step in caring for your weed starts before the seeds are even planted. Start by providing good soil that has been amended with organic compost like aged manure in order to provide nutrition for new seedlings and maintain healthy pH levels – marijuana needs acidic soil. Once the roots have started growing out from the little sprouts, then transplant into larger pots so they don’t become root-bound.
Once the cannabis plant is growing, you’ll want to trim off any yellowed leaves or other sections that are dying for a few reasons:
- It will promote new growth from healthy parts of the plant instead of those with problems
- The scent it releases when dried can mask smells like mold and fungus on your buds – this means more people will buy your weed if they don’t know it’s old!
Cannabis plants need plenty of light in order to grow properly. A lot of indoor growers use HPS lighting (which stands for high pressure sodium) because it provides some red spectrum in addition to blue and white which stimulates photosynthesis better than LED lights do. But LEDs provide more control over individual areas of a grow space and can be cheaper depending on what features you want.
- HPS lighting should be hung about two feet away from the plants if possible, while LED lights emit light in all directions so it’s best to keep them close
- Ensure that there are no shadows cast by leaves or other obstacles which would hinder the quality of your photosynthesis
If your plant is indoors, using artificial light sources will depend largely on your budget but make sure they’re not too hot. If you do get an expensive indoor setup for growing cannabis – like a high pressure sodium lamp with quartz bulbs – then use just five percent of its maximum power output. This raises CO₂ levels without making everything hotter.
3. Make sure it is in a sunny spot and not too close to a window or vent, which can dry out the air around it
- Examine the surface of your cannabis plant and look for any discoloration, insect infestation or disease.
- Make sure you water it enough – but not too much! Dry soil is a key contributor to fungal growth that can damage plants. Be careful when watering cannabis as they are prone to root rot in overly wet conditions.
4. Don’t let plants sit in stagnant water for too long
- To avoid this, use a soaker hose or drip system.

You can use a high-quality cannabis hydroponic system to grow and harvest weed plants without soil, but they are more expensive than other methods
A lot of people prefer the organic way – using just water as it is one of the best fertilizers for growing marijuana – which means you need to be careful about how much light your plant gets. You should keep them in indirect sunlight or at least have an electric lamp that reflects off of aluminum foil so there’s less direct sun on leaves. And then make sure not to let them dry out by giving their roots proper ventilation inside the potting mix (like with large holes) because if they get too hot, they’ll die from heat stress!
5. Fertilize your cannabis plant every few weeks with an organic fertilizer such as compost tea, fish emulsion, or worm castings
Cannabis plant care is an important topic for those who want to grow cannabis. There are many different ways in which you can take care of your plants – from using soil ants to just watering them with water and letting the natural sunlight do its job! If you’re looking for a more organic approach, some people use compost tea as fertilizer by watering it down and spraying it on their leaves every few weeks. You should also be mindful of how much light they get each day because too much will dry out their roots and kill them in extreme cases. So make sure they have ventilation holes around the potting mix so that direct sun doesn’t hit their leaves directly at all times.
