Everything that will be fed to the plants will have to go through the roots except the light from the sun. Thus if the roots cannot do their functions because they are weak or they just don’t have the full capacity to do so, you can’t expect the plants to be really healthy.
So what can you do to ensure your cannabis plants will have healthy roots? You should be aware of some of the most common problems that can make the roots less healthy such as the following:
Too much water
Watering your plants is one of the most basic things to do. While there are plants that will do well with too much water, marijuana is not one of them. You can’t water it too much as it won’t do well if you do. Instead, you should just give the exact amount of water it needs.
Too much nutrients
Just like the water, the same thing can happen if you feed your marijuana plants with too much nutrients. You should first learn about the exact amount it needs as that is the only thing the cannabis can adapt well. This might not affect the roots directly but it still well and it will make them less functional.
The growing space
This is another issue you must pay attention to. You should give enough space for the roots to spread and do their functions. If the space is too limited, this can result to root binding. If the space is too wide as well, the roots will have a hard time finding the nutrients. So the space should be just right.
The right temperature
The right and steady temperature will also matter a lot. This is vital in making your roots happy. Notable weather oscillation will not do well with the cannabis roots and this can cause adverse effects on them. If you are having them indoors, the temperature might be easier to manage as you have full control of it. However, if the plants are outdoors, you will be at the mercy of the natural weather. But of course, there is still something you can do.
To make the cannabis healthy, they must have healthy roots. By making sure the problems mentioned above will not happen, this is quite possible. As what is mentioned, if the roots are happy and healthy, you will also have a healthy harvest.
