The last stage in the life cycle of a cannabis plant is the most important for growers (and everyone who gets to enjoy the harvest). The flowering stage begins after a period of reduced exposure to light.
The vegetative stage, also known as the growth stage, is the first stage in the life of a cannabis plant. It is a period of growth in which the plant focuses on getting big and strong. When a plant only grows with stems and leaves (no shoots), it is considered to be in the vegetative stage.
Cannabis plants use a lot of water, and regardless of what sort of setup you’re using, you’re going to want to make sure you have plenty of it.
Feminized seeds are obtained by "forcing" a female cannabis plant to become hermaphrodite and with its pollen fertilize other female plants.
The origin of most of this type of seeds is in areas with a cold climate (Asia, Russia, etc.), where the plants only find the conditions conducive to their development during 3 or 4 months of the year.
How to determine what action to take? Our particular and personal opinion is that when we grow and more if it is for our own consumption, it is not necessary to add any type of substance as long as we have controlled all other factors, such as humidity, temperature, guarantee regarding our seed , quality substrate, light and lumens, pH of the water, electroconductivity etc.
What is the ideal pot or flowerpot? The ideal pot or pot for growing autoflowering indoors is 7 liters. For outdoor cultivation it is different, since we would need a 19-liter pot or pot.
Temperature can be the cause from diseases, viruses or bacteria to small and poor quality productions. Obviously temperature is a determining factor in the growth of our cannabis plant.
We consider that in the period of growth in an interior, the ideal hours of light are from 16 to 20 hours. We should not let our plants, in the periods of growth, have less than 16 hours of light. These hours are ideal for feminized plants.
