For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** Cloning marijuana is an alternative to growing from seeds. In order to make cloned plants you will need a single mother plant which is used for all of the cuttings. A mother plant should exhibit certain qualities because all of your plants will have identical genetics; in particular it should demonstrate fast growth, high potency, and resistance to mould and pests. The mother should be kept in vegetative growth all the time under a metal halide light, for more information on metal halide lights please skip ahead to video ten in the series. The tools you will need to clone are: a small plate, a planting tray with matching humidity dome, peat pods or rock-wool cubes (referred to as the rooting medium), rooting hormones, and a pair of sharp scissors or a sterilized razor blade. All of which can be easily found at a local gardening and hardware store. Light should be provided by a fluorescent bulb hung above the plant tops.

For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** Vegetative growth is the second stage of a plants lifecycle after germination. During this stage a plant will be photosynthesising as much as possible to grow as large as it can before entering the flowering period. All plants have a vegetative stage where they are growing as fast as possible, with marijuana it is almost standard practice to grow Cannabis plants with little to no dark period to increase the speed and amount of growth. Because of this vigorous growth plants may not always develop the way you want them to. One such phenomenon is called stretching. This can be observed through the spacing between new branches, if the plant is not receiving enough light there will be very little lateral growth, it will grow tall and lanky as it tries to grow closer to the light source. To avoid stretching during my stage of plant development, keep the light source as close to the plants as you can.

For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** The flowering period is when the female plants are ready to be pollinated by the male plants. In natural conditions the bud is where the seed will form. However by removing male plants from the equation, the flowers remain unfertilized and thus seedless. Flowering is induced once your plant has reached the desired size. When you have decided to initiate flowering you must change the photo period to imitate what the lighting conditions would be in the plant’s natural setting – that means 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark.

Joints are timeless and are considered by many to be an art-form in their own right. Although there are many different methods to rolling a joint, there are some basic things which apply to all techniques. Firstly, the consistency of your marijuana is crucial to rolling a good joint. Make sure that the bud has been evenly broken down. This will allow you to separate the bud from any stems, sticks, or leaves. Once you have reached a good consistency, not too lumpy, but not too powdery, you can begin rolling a joint. The shape of the finished join is determined by how you distribute the mix over the paper.

For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** When growing outdoors there are a number of security measures you can take against animal and human intrusion on your crops. As mentioned, cover can be very important for avoiding unwanted visitors. Try to match the natural foliage around your plants to what a marijuana plant would grow in naturally. Keep in mind that plants with similar colours, height, width, and girth to a marijuana plant make for great neighbours. This reduces the chance of drawing human attention. Again, plant coverage at the expense of light is not worth it. There are a number of deterrents you can use to keep away humans and animals. Surrounding your plants with poison ivy or thorn bushes can be extremely effective. Also the more remote of a location the better; crossing rivers, valleys, and embarking on long hikes all reduce the chances that someone may accidentally stumble upon your crop.

For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** Plant spacing is very important for the grow room for a number of reasons. If your plants are spaced too far apart then you’re wasting light and valuable canopy space. However if you’re growing too close together you have shading, which leads to the underdevelopment of the buds; it also creates an environment conducive to mould, mildew, and bacterial growth. Get your spacing right before inducing flowering. Ensure that your plants still have room between each other to allow for future growth during the flowering period, plants will typically grow another 25-50% larger during flowering. This is something that the grower will have to experiment with, depending upon how large the plants became during the period of vegetative growth. If the plants do begin to grow too close to each other prune off any overlapping foliage. Remember your clippings can be used as clones if they are done correctly. Check back to lesson three for a more detailed account of cloning.

For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** In many ways, lighting is the most important aspect of growing marijuana. Plants take their direction from the light. The lighting controls the rate of metabolization and tells it everything from where and how to grow. Lighting determines the rate at which your plants photosynthesize, or in layman’s terms, how quickly they grow. The goal of lighting is to imitate the natural conditions that marijuana grows in. The amount of light you give your plants directly correlates to the amount of bud the plant yields because it dictates the rate at which it metabolizes.

Your marijuana plants are looking for ph levels ranging from 5.6 to 5.8 during vegetative growth and 6.0 to 6.2 during flowering. Check back to lessons four and five for a more detailed account of reading ph levels and manipulating them. The unit measurement parts per million, or PPM, is the best way to determine what the concentration of elements in your water is. PPM meters are commonplace and can be purchased at your local gardening center. In regular tap water, PPM ranges from 50 to 150 PPM. The cannabis grower will want anywhere from 600 to 1600 PM for their plants depending upon the stage of the plants lifecycle. As the plants get older and grow larger, you should increase the PPM. Of course, this also means that during vegetative growth you should have a lower PPM than during flowering.

For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** Marijuana flourishes through a wide range of relative humidity. It can grow in an atmosphere as dry as a desert or as moist as a jungle. Under ordinary household conditions, the humidity will rarely be too extreme for healthy growth. The effects of humidity on plant growth are closely tied to temperature, wind speed, and the moisture of the soil. The theory of transpiration is a process similar to evaporation. It inherently involves the rate at which your plant expels and, subsequently, absorbs moisture. Transpiration also cools plants and enables flow of mineral nutrients and water from roots to shoots. It is closely connected with the plants’ stomata, which are like pores on the leaves of a marijuana plant that open and close to accommodate the external and internal availability of moisture. The goal of the stomata is to protect the marijuana plants from dramatic changes in moisture.

For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** The ideal ventilation system is determined by your budget and your imagination. However, there are two main theories of room design: the open room and the closed or “perfect” room. An open room is one in which air is constantly being circulated in and out. Airflow in an open room is very important because it is necessary for exhausting the warm O2 rich air and refilling the room with cooler natural air, which has higher levels of CO2. In doing so, you are also helping to maintain a healthy temperature for your plants.

For more information, visit: *******www.growingmarijuana**** Many of you are watching this in order to grow at home for personal consumption. The truth of the matter is that whether you are growing a single plant or on a commercial scale the concepts a grower should know are the same. All marijuana growers are looking to replicate the natural conditions in which their strain of marijuana grows. Of course the logistics can differ greatly depending upon your growing goals. We will recap several lessons for the home-growers. First of all is security, most specifically smell. Reducing smell at home is easier than many people think. Look into finding a small carbon filter from a grow store or on the internet. Create negative pressure in your room using an exhaust fan and harness the carbon filter in front of it to remove the smell from the air exiting the room. Do be cautious of drawing attention as carbon filters are an indicator of a grow op. If moisture is a concern, dehumidifiers are readily available at your local hardware store; you will most likely not need one.
