Before you invest your hard earned money in LED grow lights do your homework and make sure you get a great light from a reputable company. Otherwise, you might get stuck in the middle of your grow with a ruined crop and light pocketed. There are a few critical things to look out for when shopping for LED grow lights.

How To Recognize Manganese Deficiencies On Marijuana Plants

Manganese deficiencies do not occur that often and are practically always linked with iron and zinc deficiencies. A lack of manganese will show up in young leaves as they start to turn yellow and exhibit small, brownish necrotic areas in the middle of the leaf. The veins of the leaf will generally remain green. The outline of the leaf will become dark green. A surplus of manganese will produce an iron deficiency. Manganese does not move across the marijuana plant, making it immobile. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about marijuana nutrients.

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.

This is due to the water that comprises well over half

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 moistness level, they will enlarge and split open. A single

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.
