How To Make Your Own Marijuana Fertilizers

marijuana fertilizerMarijuana fertilizers come in all shapes and sizes, and most of them achieve the desired effect of producing better marijuana plants with better yields. Many fertilizers range from relatively common store-bought substances to somewhat outlandish, but easily accessible resources. Whatever you use, it’s important to understand the value of fertilizer for the marijuana plants.

Cannabis relies on fertilizer to get its valued nutrient content. Without any nutrients (food), the plants will end up withering away to nothing. Just having water and light won’t be enough to get your plants thriving. Fertilizers can go a long way in doing just that. But, what are the best fertilizers to use?

There is some logic behind sticking with a proven formula. For years, garden centers across the world have sold Miracle-Gro and other packaged fertilizers at relatively inexpensive prices. Using these fertilizers is a tried and true method that has worked for a variety of different gardeners for a variety of different plants. These fertilizers also give you the added benefit of listing the amount of nutrients they have in the soil.

For instance, most store bought fertilizers work off of a standard ratio between nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K). This is called an NPK ratio and it lets you know exactly how much you’re feeding to your plants. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about growing marijuana plants and making your own fertilizers.

One of the strangest fertilizers you may have ever heard of is human urine. Indeed, the yellow stuff is chalk full of the nitrogen that can promote stem and leaf production. It is important to not urinate directly on the marijuana plants or even near the plants because it might kill where it touches. This is because the urine has too high of a concentration of nitrogen for it to be safe. That is why it must always be diluted in about a gallon of water and then used quickly. If it’s not used soon after the solution is made, then you run the risk of ammonia forming which could infect and kill the plant.

Of course, another relatively inexpensive and also tried and true method is composting. Composting is nature’s way of really highlighting the circle of life. Any organic material you might have lying around in your backyard is sufficient for composting. This can take the form of stashed away dog feces or it can be the product of decayed oranges from an orange tree. You could even combine different organic materials that have been lying around for months or years at a time. Although it might strike you as a gross way to make a fertilizer, it is one of the best and most natural ways to produce a thriving crop.

There are more options for fertilizers that you might want to try, but these are certainly three of the best (or at least the easiest to use). Whether you’re peeing in a bottle or going down to the garden center to buy a bag of pre-made fertilizer, you’re going to increase your marijuana yield with higher nutrient content. In the end, that’s all you’re really looking for when it comes to fertilizers.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    I planted 2 seedlings in a pot together about 4 inches apart in 1 parts sand (I dug about 4 feet for it) and 2 part miracle grow. My plants are doing just fine. I used 2 shipping boxes to make a grow lab with, 1 CFL bulb, and aluminum foil. 1 is about 1 inch tall the other is about 2-3 inches tall. Strong stems, green, and sturdy. Simple, homemade growing. Mist water every 2-4 hours. 24 hours of light. That’s what I do and my plants are fine. Biggest problem was my pot retaining water. But eventually fixed it by reducing the amount t of sand.

  4. Indoor or outdoor BE CAREFUL of the fertilizer you use! ESPECIALLY for medical application. Remember the old computer saying GIGO? (garbage in – garbage out) Growing weed also has one… TITO -(toxins in-toxins out) If BONE meal and BLOOD meal or BIO-SOLIDS are used you are looking at ingesting ANTIBIOTICS -HORMONES -STEROIDS that are contained within fertilizer with blood and bone meal blends.
    Better for you to try ORGANIC fertilizer from pure mealworm frass. Check it out at http://www.rainbow-farms-fertilizer.com
    By the way . . . not only are the products 100% organic with high NPK . . . they are also a natural MICROBIAL FERTILIZER.

  5. 1. Start a worm compost – care for it well, this gives you the option of a natural fertilizer at all stages and can be diluted to use as a foliar spray, feed your greasy bastards crushed egg shells to increase the calcium level
    2. add nail clippings and hair – good N but don’t add a shit load ( compost excess )
    3. remember organic has nothing to do with organic anything – When you are talking about organics you are talking about the soil food web so learn it. Read ” Teaming with Microbes ” this is a start. You need to learn to play god with your soil microbial environment to get them to benefit plants ( ex. you add sugars’ molasses’ to your soil to feed the bacteria right? good this is good but bacteria withhold 2/3’s of the nutrients they break down within their cells so in order to release it they need to die. How? beneficial soil microbes feed on carbon and the use nitrogen to do so, so you then must feed nitrogen to consume the carbon but to much carbon creates a soil environment unfit for cannabis so you then have to play the balance of C/N then there is the case of adjusting pH throughout the grow phase to allow certain nutrients to become available at certain times. I use road base in my mix [crushed limestone] that way the plant can acid mine the stone for calcium whenever they want and it becomes more available over time. If anyone is using clay as a nutrient binder then best to use ground limestone and avoid Dolopril and Dolomite they have an improper ratio of Ca to Mg causing clay particles to collapse and loose their holding capacity and if mixed with epsom could cause a Mag. OD.)

    Start a COLD COMPOST
    this is a way to ensure the nutrients that are in the foods you compost are not broken down by the heat of the pile cooking.
    you can add road base, nutrient accumulator plants, sea weed kelp, beech or maple leaves, grass clippings. JUST NO CARBON AND DON’T TURN IT THIS IS A SPECIAL MIX. THIS IS LIKE WIZARD SHIT!!!!! you then have your pot special compost ” slow cooked ” ,worm casting for bacteria inoculation , and your properly timed pH adjustments and bacterial holocausts and your getting your feet wet in organics.

  6. I had a friend hold three of my plants for me amd he never moved them to biggerpots so now it kinda looks llike a tree with the truck that comes down and buds on the top part ive got them home amd transplanted but now what can I do to help them get better

  7. Not a lot of Nitrogen in urine . . . what you accomplished was
    watering the plants which is probably why they were turning yellow in the first
    place. Cannabis needs plenty of water on a daily basis for best growth. Bat
    guano tea is never a good idea if you intend to ingest or inhale elements of
    your crop. Go on-line and look at the potential diseases that guano can have.
    Not worth the risk.

  10. Can someone help me out?
    I’m a first time grower and I was given some seeds so I thought I would try it out. I have planted 2 seedlings together in the same pot and now I have 2 little plants starting to rise and there about 3 to 4 inches high so far and about 1 1/2 inches apart, I know that this was a mistake, what can I do?

  11. Times change and new organic products are discovered Humboldt. As a consultant, you should be at the leading edge, not lagging behind. Compost tea without synthetic chemicals (a lot of them) is not and never will be a fertilizer. A 20 million dollar fertilizer supplier is hardly using pure organic fertilizers like mealworm frass.
    The people that take medical cannabis have a right to know how their medication is grown: what goes into the growing soil goes into the plants themselves . . . and much of the hi-power products that you sell are filled with synthetics or chemicals that may not be in the interests of medical patients to ingest or inhale. Such chemicals could actually make them worse.
    I have spent several years working on a pure, organic fertilizer and have the patents to prove it.
    While the FDA may call “biosolids” organic, I certainly don’t! Anything that comes from sewerage treatment plants (human waste + everything else that gets flushed down the toilet + plus runoff from the streets is not my idea of ‘organic’ anything. The same holds true for bat guano (which is the culprit of EBOLA DISEASE). Most mj growers use it as a BLEND of many ingredients to grow big crops. But are they growing HEALTHY crops??
    Please stop trying to confuse medical and health conscious users of your technical expertise or state that they should play with various forms of bacteria laden ‘tea’ when all they want is a safe medicine. Maybe you should try my LIQUID GRO CONCENTRATE if you really want to know what a organic liquid fertilizer and foliar spray really is.

    And NO, YOU DON’T HAVE TO FLUSH the plants before harvest. It is a silly notion that a grower can take all of the chemicals out of his crop of mj simply by flushing the roots!
    The fact is, the chemicals and toxins have become part of the plant itself and are concentrated in the buds (the fruit of the plant) and will never leave.
    Therefore, you never need to flush my organic fertilizer (liquid or dry) because it is 100% single source, 100% pure and 100% organic, in the real meaning of the word (not like Kellogg’s or E.B. Stone that uses blood and bone meal as part of their BLEND).
