A good rule of thumb is that if a plant looks sick, then it probably is. If you have a bunch of weak looking buds, chances are they’re not going to be big. If you have a strong looking bud that’s only weighing about half of what it should be, then you might want to think about doing something different. You could try making some adjustments so that your next batch of buds will produce stronger ones.

One of the best things you can do is add some compost to your soil mix. Adding compost to your soil mix helps replenish the nutrients and oxygen that the soil is missing out on. Composting requires little work and isn’t difficult at all. There are many ways to go about doing composting, but the method I like best is called the hot pile method. In this case, you gather all of the material (leaves, grass clippings, etc.) in a pile outside of your house. Next, turn the pile over with a shovel a couple times until it begins to decompose. When you do this, it mixes everything together and starts breaking down faster. Once the pile gets really warm, you don’t need to do anything else – leave it alone. Eventually, the materials inside the pile start to decompose and release their nutrients back into the ground, and eventually those nutrients will make their way back into the soil around the home where they were originally gathered.

When you’re starting to harvest your marijuana plants, it’s helpful to keep records. Keep track of how much you’ve harvested throughout the year, what strain you planted, and what nutrients you added to the soil. You’ll know exactly what worked and what didn’t.

As for what works best? Well, you’re going to have to experiment with different combinations of nutrients. Sometimes it takes a while before you find the right combination, but once you do, you’ll notice that all of your plants will stop wasting their time trying to get bigger, more mature buds and begin growing denser, delicious buds instead.

To make sure that your plants aren’t getting stressed, you’ll want to give them plenty of food and water. When you’re first planting seeds, you’ll often want to use a fertilizer called a slow-release fertilizer. These kinds of fertilizers are designed to provide enough nutrients all at once, but not too much at any given time. After you seed the plants and let them sit for a few weeks, they’ll grow roots and sprout off of them. At this point, you may want to switch to using an intermediate fertilizer. These types of fertilizers are meant to be added to the soil after the plants have been sitting for a few months, giving them plenty of time to get established Darrell.

If you’re having trouble with your plants looking sickly, don’t worry! That can be related to a variety of factors. Maybe your soil is lacking in certain elements. Maybe you’re over watering the plants. Maybe the temperature is wrong. Whatever the problem is, just take a look at everything and fix it. Don’t give up!

Just remember that when you’re growing marijuana, it’s always better to err on the side of caution than it is to risk losing money. If you’re concerned about whether your plants are undernourished or over-watered, don’t hesitate to pay attention to them. If you wait until you notice that your plants are dying, you probably won’t be able to save them Darrell Brooks.
