How to Grow Great Cannabis Indoors
Cannabis is a plant, that is easy to grow, however it naturally thrives outdoors. But, under the right conditions there are many benefits and advantages of growing indoors.
No 1. The first advantage to growing indoors is that you completely have the ability control your end results.
You will be building the environment from ground up, this environment will become your personal grow space. You are mother nature and control everything, from lighting, to the choice of pots, the growing medium, nutrients, air flow, temperature, humidity, ect….YOU will be responsible for the success of your girls.
No 2. Outdoor growing is cool and all but dealing with the seasons most definitely is not.
When you depend on Mother Nature to provide for your plants, you will be locked into only one harvest per year, (if growing photo plants) especially the farther you live from the equator. Cannabis is an annual plant and naturally flowers but once a year.
That being said it is safe to say that the number of harvests is not so much about the plant itself but more about the environment that you will learn to create.
When you grow indoors, you can create the right conditions for your cannabis plants to produce more than one harvest in a year!
Harvesting 5 to 8 times a year is possible!
Especially if you are growing autos.
And it could even be done with photos If you have to rooms, because it takes a plant two months to mature and flower. That means you could grow cannabis year-round when done indoors.
One for the vegetation phase (where you give it 16 to 20 hours of light) and one for the flowering phase (where you give it 6 to12 hours of light). This simple method enables you to grow up to 8 harvests annually.
NO 3. You will gain a personal relationship with each and every plant you will came to know them as you watch
them grow develop and mature, as you are going to provide everything that nature does, and
believe me it?s going to take some work because growing indoor is more so about focusing on the quality of each
NO 4. Some would say that the biggest advantage to growing cannabis indoors is that you will have full control
over your personal growing experience (environment.)
I have used the term experience because that is specifically what it is, and you’ll find a love for it!!!
You can control your grow medium (look forward to a future post on building the best growing medium), lighting, temperature, water, humidity and CO2 levels with relative ease. It is also much easier to keep your grow environment free of pests and disease of which we will fully discuss fin the near future (pests and disease).
NO 5. There is also a difference when it comes to the THC, CBD & Other canabanoids that is provided from
indoor cannabis when compared with outdoor cannabis.
Indoor cannabis tends to result in substantial higher trichome counts, denser flowers, and a more potent high. Outdoor weed creates a weaker high, with fewer trichomes and less dense flowers.
One reason why indoor-grown cannabis is deemed more potent is because of the controlled environment it is grown in.
Not only this, but the introduction of high CO2 levels when compared with the natural environment has also heightened bud growth and produce THC levels that are challenging to obtain outdoors. When you consider everything that cannabis that is grown outdoors has to go through, it is probably of no surprise that it will be considered much less potent.
