Should You Give Your Marijuana Plants Hard Or Soft Water?

First, inspect the water for any dissolved solids. An adequate amount should be between 100 and 150 parts per million (ppm).

Water that is too high (over 250 ppm of dissolved solids), should be filtered with ionic or reverse osmosis filters. Hard water restricts a balanced nutrient uptake. You can mix filtered and unfiltered water to create a water mixture that’s suitable for plants. A test of the water supply in [...]

How To Deal With Stretching Marijuana Plants

Marijuana plants that have stretching stems are problematic for grow rooms and outdoor gardens in which height is a major concern. Marijuana plants stretch for a variety of reasons. Genetics is the most obvious reason. Some plants are programmed to produce long stems no matter how much you try to prevent it. Sativa strains that grow tall outside will do the same when indoors.

She kept it in a non-see-through jar, and I vividly remember when she pulled out a nug, my mind was blown. I had never seen purple marijuana prior to that, and to be honest, I was skeptical that it would actually be purple until I seen it. But sure enough, [...]
