Knowing how to grow marijuana in a closet is much easier and more effective than it may seem, although it takes some time until you get used to it and get it right.
Calendar for growing marijuana.
If we grow indoors, our calendar can start any month we want. The most advisable is to start cultivation on day 1, to better control the time. However, there would be no problem to start on another day, as long as we keep track of the time. Two weeks for the cuttings to root, two weeks for the vegetative growth, and eight weeks, approximately, for the flowering of the plants. This time can change according to marijuana strains. In this article we are going to focus on this time interval between stages but, as we have mentioned, it is indicative.
First month:The first week will be dedicated to rooting the cuttings and sowing the seeds. We will make sure that they are warm so that they germinate quickly. In addition, we will adjust the timer in the grow room to turn on the lights 18 hours a day and keep them off for 6 hours. We must be careful with the soil. In addition, the humidity that will be in the environment can cause the appearance of mold.
Second month:Our plants should measure between 15-30 cm and the leaves should be wide, green and firm. We will continue with the fertilizer program and place the lamps between 30 and 90 cm apart. We will transplant the plants into larger pots and water as much as necessary. During the second month the flowering period begins. We will change the fertilizer and use a specific one for this cycle. The photoperiod is 12 hours and our plants should be between 30 and 60 cm tall. At this point, overwatering can be a problem when growing cannabis indoors. We will check the soil with a moisture meter. Iron, magnesium and nitrogen deficiencies can appear now. It is advisable to apply a supplementary mixture of microelements.
Third month:The plants will measure between 45 and 90 cm and should show white pistils. It is time to take cuttings for the next crop. It is very important to check humidity, ventilation and air circulation. We will observe how the soil dries quickly and we can prune the plants that shade others. We are at the moment of highest THC production. During the next few weeks, the buds double in potency and size. The white leaves tend to yellow, so we will remove them. Also, this is the last opportunity to spray and fertilize if we want to harvest in a couple of weeks. We will fertilize with some product for fattening. We will inspect for gray mold on the buds. We are at the moment of highest resin in the buds. Our plants are reaching their point of maturity. If the production is ready, it is time to harvest. From this moment on, the THC level starts to drop, so don't take too long to start harvesting if you want your marijuana to have quality. With this guide, you will have everything organized to know what to do at all times.
Weekly to-do list for growing cannabisIn addition to this growing calendar you have just read, it is also important to have a weekly to-do list to know if everything is going as it should.

Planting cannabis outdoors, How to do it
Planting marijuana outdoors is a very simple and very economical process for those who want to start in this world. In this article we are going to explain the steps to follow so that you can plant correctly and get the most out of your harvest.
When should I plant marijuana?
Look at the moonAs with pregnancy, the tide or the mood of people, the moon also has a great influence on agriculture and the cultivation of all plants, as is the case of cannabis and the germination of marijuana seeds. Lunar calendars, based on the rotations and phases of the moon, were created to know the most suitable dates to carry out the cultivation work in relation to the situation of the star.
Observing the moon will help you to know when to plant marijuanaThe lunar phase is a cycle that repeats every 30 days, approximately, and that influences the plant and the cycle of ascent and descent of its sap. The effectiveness of this type of calendar is such that it is still used today to know the best dates for pruning, sowing and harvesting. In this way, thanks to the moon, we can know exactly what is the process to follow for a correct cultivation and not die trying. If we use it correctly, the lunar calendar for growing cannabis is very effective and, moreover, easy to understand, because it is based on the four lunar phases known to all: new moon, crescent moon, full moon and waning moon. Of the four phases, the full moon is the most recognizable, since it shines perfectly in the sky. This is the most appropriate period for harvesting, fertilizing and sowing, avoiding pruning at all times, as the sap nutrients would be lost and our plants could die. In the waning moon we will continue with the work we started in the full moon. During this period the growth of our plant is slower, so we recommend transplanting pots. During the new moon, we will have less light at night, and we will execute activities other than weeding, since the sap is concentrated in the root. Likewise, the germination power is minimal and it is also one of the most sensitive phases for the lower part of the plant. Finally, the crescent moon is considered to be responsible for plant growth. It is the best time to plant, showing special attention in doing so two or three days before entering the full moon, as the period in which the sap rises to the top of the plant boosting growth, flowering and maturation. Lunar calendar 2022 To plant outdoors, the first thing you should consider is the marijuana seeds you are going to grow. It is very important that you get information about each one and its origin, since the result you are looking for will depend on it. Once we know which marijuana seeds we are going to use, we can get down to work. Although we are going to plant outdoors, our recommendation is that you germinate the seeds at home. Why? Well, because it is safer and because this way they will get stronger before planting them under natural light. This will ensure that the seeds will grow strong and healthy.
Finding the right place
While the marijuana seeds are growing (we will have them at home for about two weeks) we will look for the right place to plant them. This place should be as hidden and away as possible from the sight of the most curious people, obviously, if we are going to plant on our terrace, it is not necessary to look for a hidden place. In this case, when our seeds have germinated, we will transplant them into larger pots. The pots that we use will be of 45 liters so that they will last us during the whole cycle of culture. Marijuana is a light devouring plant. So the more sunlight it gets, the more buds it will give you.
Transplanting our marijuana seeds
Transplanting marijuana seeds into pots is very simple. To do this, we will use a fertilized quality substrate, complete with additives that you can find in our Grow Shop, from now on, we will make sure that the substrate is always moist and we will water it constantly. In the same way, it is advisable to spray the plants with neem oil, a natural and infallible insect repellent. Depending on the variety that we have planted, the plants will take more or less time to grow. Normally they do it between four and five months.
Maintenance of the plants
Our outdoor plants will not need much care at first to grow. Water and sun is what they will want, and as they grow, we will check the pH of the water to see if everything is correct or if any nutrient is missing. During growth, marijuana plants should have a pH between 5.5 and 5.8. We will use a growth fertilizer with high levels of nitrogen. With all this, we will ensure that our plants grow perfectly throughout their growth phase.
The flowering of marijuana seeds
Normally, around June 24th, when the day starts to shorten, our plants will start to flower. Therefore, 15 days before starting to cut the plants, we will wash the soil with plenty of water to remove any nutrients that may remain. Until the day of harvest, we will keep our plants only with water and, when we are going to cut them, we will make sure that the soil is dry. In this way, we will not risk the buds rotting. After that, it will be time to dry and cure the marijuana to enjoy a good smoke.
How to plant marijuana in SCROG
Planting marijuana in SCROG means maximizing production and saving work time. It is a perfect system to grow indoors with the least amount of plants but with excellent results.SCROG comes from English and means "green screen", so it uses a grid for plants to grow through it. The idea is to fill all the spaces of this grid, so that all the plants get the same amount of light. In this post we are going to explain how to grow marijuana in SCROG in a few simple steps. With this system, we will control the height of the plants and, with this, we will increase the quality of our crop. As all plants are given the same amount of light, there will be no differences between them and they will all have an excellent quality.
Growing marijuana in SCROG saves us growing timeTo grow in SCROG we will use the grid for this technique, which you can find in our online store, and we will place it about 30 centimeters above the pots. If we have a marijuana growing closet of one square meter, it is advisable to use a maximum of five marijuana plants. The more plants, the better your results will be. Keep in mind that all your plants will have the same treatment in the mesh. If we decide to use a single plant in this system, it is advisable to use a 25 liter pot. If on the contrary we use more plants, we will opt for pots of 11 liters of capacity. Once the plants reach the grid we can move them so that they grow horizontally. This is the objective of growing marijuana in Scrog; to limit the vertical growth and to promote the horizontal growth. Sativa varieties are best suited to the SCROG technique, as we can handle their stems more easily. Indicas, on the other hand, show more resistance when it comes to handling them. When we place the grid, it is necessary to hold it well, because it is the one that will support the plants. As we have mentioned, growing marijuana in SCROG will save us time during the growth stage. By this we mean that we will get less production but higher quality. As a general rule, a plant grown in this technique takes between five and seven weeks to reach the mesh. If we use more plants, they will reach the net weeks earlier.
When do the plants flower?
Obviously, the flowering of each plant will depend on each variety. If we have cultivated Sativas, we will have it easier, since the flowering period will begin when we have 60% of the mesh covered, while the Indicas begin to bloom when about 75% of the grid is covered. This is because this variety grows less during the flowering cycle. Although this system is more suitable for indoor use, it is also possible to install it outdoors. Obviously, the mesh will have to be tied to some structure to support the weight of the plants. It is true that growing marijuana in SCROG has its advantages, although there are also some disadvantages to take into account. One of them is the reduction in the number of harvests, as we have already mentioned. However, we must also remain attentive to the presence of fungi due to the lack of ventilation. Therefore, we will have to observe our production with caution and apply preventive measures regularly.
Tips for growing marijuana in winter
In Spain, especially in the Mediterranean area and in the Canary archipelago, we have a climate that is not very cold during the winter months. For this reason, many growers dare to grow marijuana in winter. It is a very different way of cultivating than when we do it the rest of the year, since the plants need another treatment. Once we know how to do it, we will have no problem growing during the coldest months. In this article we are going to explain how to grow marijuana indoors and that the production is a success. The first thing to take into account is the temperature of the grow room. When we grow indoors and in winter, we must pay special attention to the temperature, one of the determining factors in the life cycle of our plants. Every plant needs an adequate temperature to be able to develop. Marijuana, in essence, must have a temperature between 24 and 30ºC during the day and between 18 and 22ºC at night. If, on the contrary, the night temperature decreases, the growth of the plants will be affected.
