Are you farming marijuana for the first time? Marijuana is really becoming popular in a good way these days, unlike before when you will only hear about this in a bad light. Today more and more people discover the wonders of this plant thus more and more as well are becoming interested in it.
Growing cannabis though is not as easy as it seems. There will be times when you think everything is okay but suddenly, you will discover some problems like yellowing of the leaves, stagnant growth and so on. You might wonder why when you have done your best in taking good care of your plants.
The thing is a lot of problems can occur while cultivating this plant. They are certainly one of those delicate plants that need tender loving care. Well, they can grow fine at times even when neglected but trust me, their yields will certainly not as what you expected.
One of the most common complaints of marijuana growers is the roots problems. What usually causes these problems?
1. When you use a pot that is too large for your plant. When this is the case, there is a chance that the roots cannot get enough of the nutrients especially when it is still in the seedlings stage. At the same time, overwatering is most likely in this kind of situation.
2. When it is the reverse of the above situation. Yes, when the plant is too big for the pot, the same problem can occur. What happens is the plants can become root-bound as there is not enough room for them to explore. You will surely notice this as the leaves will start to turn brown or will start to wilt. If you notice such changes, you should transfer the plant to a pot that is just enough for it.
3. When the weather is too cold for the plants. When this is the situation, you can just expect that the roots will start to wither and thus the plants. This is why if you happen to live in an area where it is colder than usual, you should try to use more lights for your plants to generate heat and counteract the cold temperature.
Marijuana plants might bring about a lot of wonders but that will not be the case if you won’t ensure it has the perfect environment.
