At MaryJane Farmer, we just received a question from a new grower asking for some advice as he moves into the flowering stage.
Here it is:-
“Attached are pics of my plants I have just switched to flowering on Wednesday. I am using my storeroom as my grow room. The current temp is at 34 deg and humidity is low at 11%, usually around 25%. This is my first attempt to grow cannabis. Whatever I know I have learned from the net. I am using 4 X 200W LED lights
In the photos, you can see the plants and the growing area inside his storeroom.
Obviously, it may be a little late in the day to provide much help as he is on the final stage of flowering and the images are not that clear in terms of color to see his plants clearly.
Having said that if any of our readers can off Khaliel any advice that will help him to gain the best results during the flowering stage, then harvesting and drying.
Regarding the look of the plants, we did think that the wide-open space inside the storeroom might not be the best option as it not only allows the light from his LED’s to be defused over a wide area but also could make it more difficult to control the temperature and humidity on a consistent basis.
We would recommend installing a grow tent, or even more than one if there is sufficient space, so that lighting, heat, and humidity within the grow space can be tightly controlled.
We also wondered if those pots were really big enough and if the right growing medium and adequate nutrients have been used.
It is best to keep cannabis plants in pots varying between 1.5 – 3 gallons, 3 gallons being the norm (1 gallon is 3.8 liters). And really if you have a lot of room where you are growing then you may even want to consider 5-gallon pots.
We have given Khaliel a link to this post so that he can easily access your comments to his question so do please help out a beginner grower to make the best of his first crop and give him the benefit of your experience so that when he sets out to grow his next crop he can be assured of improved results and more “bud for his buck”
