Which Nutrients To Use For Marijuana Seeds

Basic Growing Marijuana Seed Information

Cannabis and Marijuana plants use the nutrients surrounding the roots, together with water, carbon dioxide and sunlight to grow. All the nutrients necessary for the correct growth of your Sour Diesel Seeds are available from good quality soil, if however the soil is of a low quality, or has depleted its reserves of these nutrients, the growth of your Marijuana seeds may be rather slow.

To add nutrients to the soil you can use fertilizers and composts. Almost all local garden centers stock a selection of pre-packaged nutrients that will suffice. It is important that you make sure the three vital ingredients necessary for good Marijuana plant development are included; N is Nitrogen, P is Phosphorus and K is Potassium. Most fertilizers will display the ratio of nutrients in relation to each other. A balanced general purpose fertilizer has a 20 – 20 – 20 mix that has each ingredient in equal parts.

Throughout the life cycle of any cannabis or Marijuana seed, it needs different types of fertilizer according to its growing requirements. When you plant the seeds you should plant them in a potting mix and that does not require any addition fertilizer as the plant Marijuana seeds begin to grow.

As it transforms from its seedling to growth stage, then it will rapidly take up nutrients as it increases in size and produces more leaves. The best fertilizer to use is a balanced mix such a 20 – 20 – 20 NPK. This makes sure good amounts of each major nutrient is readily available to your growing Marijuana Seeds.

One of the most common problems that indoor Marijuana Seed growers face is that of over fertilizing their young plants. if you are planning to grow your seeds indoors it is important that you reduce the fertilizer levels accordingly. The small amount of soil in the pots means that you need to use smaller amounts of fertilizer at more frequent intervals. Over feeding your plants during this stage will damage the roots, leaves and growing tips of the plants, reducing the speed at which it will grow.

As the life cycle of your Marijuana seeds change from growth to flowering, at this point the nutrient levels required by the plant change. Until this time your Marijuana Seeds have spent their whole life growing new shoots and leaves, it now begins to use the stored energy and necessary nutrients to produce the flowers and buds.

During this stage your plants will require higher levels of Phosphorus, and having a higher amount available can significantly boost the production of buds and their size. This increases the amount of marijuana that you will be able to harvest, so adding this vital nutrient at this time can prove vital to increasing yields.

During this flowering stage lower levels of Nitrogen are required, and many of the flowering fertilizers account for this, as well as supplying the necessary trace elements that your Marijuana plants also require during this time. There is a temptation at this stage to give it a little extra to try and boost things a little. Be warned you will have the opposite effect, so do not undo all the hard work you have put in, by using too much fertilizer.

There are several ways to tell if your Marijuana plants are receiving the correct levels of required nutrients during the growing stage, one is if you see the leaves are beginning to lose their green appearance and take on a more yellow color. If you have a good eye for color, you may notice that over all green tone of the plant has become lighter.

Closely paying attention to the nutrient needs of your Sour Diesel Seeds is the best way to ensure a good quality and quanity from your matured Marijuana plants.
