How To Dry Outdoor Marijuana Plants

Once the marijuana plants have been harvested, they have obviously ceased to produce new cannabinoids and resins. The main changes to the potency will be negative, but effective drying and storage can help mitigate the effects. Most of the weight contained in the plant is water and drying will cause the liquid to evaporate, ensuring that the marijuana will burn evenly and smoke well. lf you were impatient, and tried to quickly cut, dry, and smoke a bud prior to your harvest, you probably noticed how poorly it smoked. This [...]

How To Create Strong Marijuana Plants

All cannabis plants start as seeds, and they all require water to germinate properly. Each seed contains a full, little plant that has a root, stem, and a couple of leaves. There are also enough nutrients in the seed for it to survive the first portion of its life. During germination, these vital nutrients (proteins, carbs, etc.) are transformed into glucose, which all plants need to for growth. 1. Let the seeds soak in water that is 65°F (18°C)  until they split open and roots appear When seeds achieve a nice [...]

How To Quickly Dry Your Marijuana Plants

For those who who can’t wait and need a quick method to dry your marijuana plants you should hang them upside down in a dark room and increase the temperature in the room to more than 90% Fahrenheit (about 32% Celsius). This will probably require an electric- or gas-powered heater. The room should be well ventilated, but if the buds are rather tightly packed a large amount of marijuana can be dried in less than a week. If there is no specific need to do this, then taking an extra [...]

How To Recognize Zinc Deficiencies In Marijuana Plants

A lack of zinc can occur from time to time and the hallmark of a zinc deficiency is a collection of gnarled and twisted leaf blades. Chlorosis and the yellowing of older leaves in between the veins can also indicate a zinc deficiency. This is frequently coupled with a general pale feel to the marijuana plant. Buds may also end up contorted or gnarled. Zinc deficiencies resemble iron or manganese deficiencies, but they affect new growth instead (making them immobile). Surplus zinc is very rare, but will create wilting and sometimes [...]

Are Fixed Fertilizers Suitable For Hydroponic Marijuana Growers?

It’s entirely up to you to decide which nutrition the marijuana plant gets via the feeding solution. Rock wool alone is useless for the plant. Rock wool is in fact an inert growing medium, which means that it doesn’t contain any nutrition and that has a low buffering effect. This also means that rock wool can be quite unforgivable if you make mistakes when making your feeding water. When growing out in the open, the soil and the age of it determine which elements can be included. Furthermore, soil has [...]

The owner of Evergreen [...]

Don't Let Cats And Dogs Around Your Marijuana Garden

Really?  You didn’t think your beloved pets were worth a spot in this section?  Hell, they hold a spot in your life, so why not here?  While your family pets can be a huge help in running off birds and mammalian intruders, they can conversely pose a threat to your cannabis plot.  Unless well trained, they have a propensity to choose your lovingly tended gardens as their defecation spots.  Perhaps they suppose they are honoring your efforts.  More likely they are marking the territory as their own.
