Growers have a challenging task: they must learn to grow weed outside without chemicals. It can be difficult, but not impossible. In this article, we will go over ways that you can do just that!
One of the most important things to remember is that nature is your best friend when growing cannabis plants. Try as much as possible to mimic what would happen in nature without human intervention. You don’t need to go out and buy expensive equipment or anything like that, do your best to replicate what you’d see in nature without chemicals.
So how do you grow weed outside without chemicals? The first thing you need to think about is the soil. For soil, use compost. Compost contains all of the nutrients that cannabis needs to grow beautifully strong and healthy, so there’s no need for chemical fertilizers. Furthermore, adding organic matter enriches your soil which means more nutrients get held within your ground, even after watering it.
One easy way to do this is simply adding kitchen scraps (e.g., vegetable peels). However, the best method would be to obtain composted manure; you can receive this at local garden shops or farms. Plant some of your cannabis seeds in a little composted manure, water them, and in a few weeks, you have some new plants!
Try not to “top” or cut any parts off of your plant so it can succeed however it pleases. Doing this lets the natural environment determine how high up in height your cannabis plant will grow.
Furthermore, it would be best if you also tried to allow your weed plants to follow their natural light cycles as best as possible. For example, if it’s winter where you live, then your weed plants will likely want to slow down on growing or go into “hibernation” mode. Let them! Give them less water and make the lights come on later and go off earlier.
This is especially true if you’re growing weed inside, but it’s still essential when growing outside too! If you want your plant to have the best chance of reaching its maximum potential, then it’s best to let them sit in full sunlight for most of the day. You’ll want to consider how much sunlight the plant gets. This will depend on where exactly they are growing. However, try to mimic the amount of the sun they would get in mid-summer without chemicals (when the sun is at its highest point for the day).
Make sure you use composted soil for your plants to have no more nutrients left over. Also, try to avoid using fertilizers.
The final important thing to think of is water: just like you did with the soil, make sure that your plant’s only water source is the rain. This will ensure there are no excess nutrients in the water.
Following these guidelines will see you through your growing season with flying colors. There’s no need to worry about chemicals or anything like that. Nature herself is more than able to provide the perfect conditions for great weed!
However, if I were you, I’d recommend using a mobile app to help you record everything. This way, if things didn’t go according to plan, you’ll be able to easily see what the problem was and fix it next time around!
After reading this article, you should better understand how to grow weed outside without chemicals. If you put these ideas into practice, you’ll gain the knowledge to grow your weed with ease! Don’t hesitate to try it yourself!
Now you can grow cannabis outside without chemicals!
