DIY: Growing Cannabis in a Closet
Most cannabis advocates end up thinking, at least once, that it may be more cost-productive to simply grow their own weed. Some cannabis lovers want to grow their own simply out of interest. No matter the reason, anyone who has ever attempted a grow themselves will tell you it is not easy and almost always winds up failed in one way or another. Attempting to grow weed and actually successfully growing marijuana plants you can smoke, are two different things. Nonetheless, one of the biggest reasons people turn out skipping out on their marijuana growing dream, is because of space. Believe it or not, having limited space has turned away more people than nearly any other reason, until now!
It is possible to successfully grow vibrant, proud, vivacious cannabis plants at home in nearly any closet! It is completely possible to grow huge cannabis plants, with very generous budding, all indoors!
The first thing you do is to choose your setup. You have a few options, but mainly the closed loop system or high CFM system, which means that you must select the best lighting option, and the right space. You also have to be aware of how hydroponic systems work and the nature of the soil that you will use. Other things to consider are surfaces easy to clean, proper water supply, reflective walls and sufficient lighting. You also need the ideal space to organize your tools and room for ample growth and consistent air flow. Choose the appropriate device so you can monitor the humidity and temperature.
For thriving germination, get all the materials needed to transform your cannabis seeds into cannabis sprouts. Of course, a medium will be needed for the cannabis seeds. You will also need a water basin, humidity dome, pH testing kit, seedling tray, TDS pen and a heat mat for your seedlings. Assemble all these materials and get started. You will also need to know how to change the pH in the water supply for added stability. Inspect the cannabis seeds and get rid of the worse ones before you start planting. Be sure that the environment encourages the growth of your seedlings. This is an important phase in how to grow weed in a closed environment. Give it a few days before checking back to see how your cannabis seeds are doing.
Now that your cannabis seeds are successfully germinated, it is time to do your transplanting. When you grow weed in a closet in your home, it will need to be transplanted after germination. It is pretty much taking your marijuana plants from its toddler stage to a teenager stage. When you germinate and transplant your seeds, it saves on water, supplies and nutrients. Find the right space to accommodate your fully grown plants.
Nutrients are essential to successful growth of marijuana plants. If you grow weed in your home, you still need to use the right nutrients. If you want your plants to grow and survive successfully, you should use mineral and non-mineral nutrients like phosphorous, carbon, calcium, potassium, hydrogen, copper, chloride, oxygen, zinc, born and sulphur. There are different nutrient requirements for a hydroponic system and the soil based system. You also have to pay attention to your plants so they don’t suffer from nutrient deficiency.
You also need to know the various stages of how to grow weed and one of this is the vegetative stage. This is one of the most important stages in the growing process. During this stage, you have to make the right decisions for your marijuana plant. For example, the length of your vegetative stage will be determined by getting the setup done right in the beginning. During the vegetative stage, you have to ensure wise pruning, regular watering schedule, sufficient lighting, enough nitrogen and potassium and good airflow.
Other areas of importance include cloning your cannabis plants, if you want to abandon the germination phase. When the vegetative stage has been completed, then you will be armed with the right steps to deal with the flowering stage so you can be ready for harvest.
Understanding all of the basics and necessities is not enough. These necessary parts and elements of the grow, all have to be able to fit into a box or tent that also fits into the closet. Typically, it’s best not to turn a closet into the grow room itself, because the box needs to be modified for ventilation and to fit these components together successfully; thus it is often better to use a box or tent there are grow tents built specifically for growing pot, which much more adequately allow for the easier manipulation of ventilation, lighting, and general plant growth. Grow boxes and tents come in all types of shapes and sizes, will all types of pre-constructed ventilations and setups. It is also easy to make a grow box at home out of a lot of rectangular contraptions, even certain large drawers or shelf spaces can become grow boxes when properly enclosed and ventilated. Temperature is also important to keep in mind. For example, many grow spaces are lined with mylar, a reflective material that helps amplify the light within the grow space and subsequently the heat.
At the end of the flowering phase, the plant can be cut down. The buds are then dried out. Some bud tastes and smokes better when it is harvested early from the plant, while other bud strains are best to harvest towards the end of their flowering phase. It is also worth noting that the plant does not need to be cut down in order to clip and trim. Buds can be removed and the plant can continue to be cared for, in order to yield another budding. It is possible to trick indoor plants into reflowering over and over, with no need to worry about the season, so long as the environment and growing mediums are properly cared for and kept up.
