Chapter 1: Horticultural Basics

What do you know about Horticulture?

In short, horticulture is the art of cultivating flora, whether edible vegetation or flowers to brighten your garden. There is a certain skill to this art, although it’s not necessarily difficult to learn. Much of it is down to good management. If you follow the few rules of balancing light, air, and nutrients, then whatever you grow should remain healthy. That’s how simple it can be. Upon saying that, as with any kind of art, it also needs a little love, care, and attention. This is the expertise you will need to grow marijuana plants. If you have this combination of skills, then you’re good to go.

The main nutrients for any plant are:

Nitrogen – Helps leaves and stems stay strong and grow. If your leaves turn yellow, they are starving of nitrogen. Use lots once your plants get to the vegetative stage.

Phosphorous – Key to your plants' breathing. You’ll read more about this later. Use plenty of phosphorous if you’re going through the flowering stage.

Potassium – Helps all plants to absorb the water that has other nutrients for growth. You could say it’s good for the digestive system as it also controls sugar levels.

Light, Air, and Heat – vital for most plants, more on these later. 

Horticulture involves getting your hands dirty, whether you grow indoors or outdoors. Your climate will most likely dictate which method you choose to grow your marijuana plants. For the city dweller, the chances are you don’t have a backyard. That doesn’t mean you can’t be a horticulturalist. Many a marijuana plant is grown in a spare room.

Wherever you decide to grow your plants, prepare to have a regular routine of care. Otherwise, you will not have a successful harvest. It’s up to you to learn the skills required. If you do it right, there’s no reason why indoor farming methods cannot reap the same rewards as outdoors. 

Organic Compounds of Cannabis Plants

It is the organic compounds of the cannabis plant that has historically made these herbs very interesting. These cannabinoids are known as:

CBG (Cannabigerol), which is a non-psycho active compound. THC and CDB are the chemical offspring of CBG.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is a natural chemical that produces a psychoactive response. Some people enjoy using it for recreation. While studies show it relieves pain, nausea, stress, and even insomnia, it also increases appetite. There are some negative effects if it is taken in higher doses and on a regular basis. It has been shown to increase the heart rate and for many induces paranoia. Some believe the negative effects go away once your body adjusts. Though not everyone agrees with this theory.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is the cure that causes much controversy worldwide. The oils are extracted from the plant much the same as essential oils from other pants. The compounds are non-psycho active but help patients who suffer seizures and spasms. The compounds act with the natural cannabinoid receptors in the human body. As they get to work on the nervous system, they help to reduce inflammation and pain. The increased cannabidiol also slows down the growth of certain cancer cells.

Three Main Strains of Cannabis

Let’s first discuss hemp, which is also a strain of the cannabis plant, but it’s cultivated for industrial use. Hemp is bred for the fibres from the roots and stems. These raw materials are strong and used to manufacture ropes, canvas, and paper, among other things. This particular cannabis plant is taller than the marijuana plant. It can reach a height up to 4-feet and is mostly grown outdoors.

The name cannabis is the genus of the plant, which is the scientific name on a hierarchical table of labels. There are three genetic variations known as strains. These are Ruderalis, Sativa, and Indica.

1  Cannabis Ruderalis

The Cannabis Ruderalis grows up to 2.5 feet tall. It produces little THC but instead produces more CBD. The CBD oils are extracted from the seeds and flowers. There is compelling evidence that it has a healing effect on the central nervous system. This is by helping the body to produce more of the natural endocannabinoids. The important point to note with CDB oil is that it is NOT addictive or psycho-active in any way.

This strain is often used for cross-pollination with other strains to produce even more hybrid varieties.

2 Cannabis Sativa

It is the leaves and flowers of this variant that produce recreational marijuana. This is what makes this strain illegal in many countries. The buds of the plant are dried out. Then, they're crushed so they can be smoked like or with tobacco, and the compounds are inhaled. It's also possible to add it to food to induce a psychotropic high. Sativa is a strain that's used more as a recreational substance, much like we would drink alcohol.

It is similar to the Indica strain. The plants don’t necessarily look alike when grown outdoors, as they grow in different parts of the world. The compounds of the two strains have a comparable effect. Many users say that Sativa is for day use, clearing the mind for more focus and making the user more productive, whereas the Indica is for night use as it can fog the mind and make a person sleepy as they feel deeply relaxed.

1  3 Cannabis Indica

It is a similar strain to the cannabis Sativa. The compounds are more likely to promote a calming effect. As the chemicals work on the central nervous system it acts as a painkiller, along with the other benefits we've mentioned.

More and more hybrids are combining Sativa and Indica to produce all the effects in one.

You may be familiar with other terms of marijuana, such as Grass, Weed, Pot, and Bud, among others. How effectively the chemicals work depends on the quality of the plant. If you wish to grow cannabis for personal use, then it’s worth making the effort to care for your plants at every stage of development.

Indoor v Outdoor Cultivation

Most growers of cannabis choose to grow indoors. We'll have a look at both indoor and outdoor growing, so you can assess which is best for your own situation. Cannabis is, as with all plants, a natural outdoor grower. When classified as an illegal drug in many countries, lots of users began to grow it indoors to avoid detection. Like any vegetation, it will thrive in sunlight. This is where grow-lights became popular because this is a plant that needs lots of light.

Indoors

Indoor cultivation allows for better control overgrowth. The ability to monitor light, temperature, and humidity, as well as avoid heavy rain, wind, and frost, is very tempting. Whilst pests will be less of a problem indoors, you won’t be completely free of them. Let’s not forget that the natural predators that would eat the pests are living outdoors too. 

The cost of equipment for indoors can be expensive. It can easily run into thousands of dollars just for a six-foot square growing area. That doesn’t include the electricity you’ll use to run the grow lights. We’ll look at the equipment later, but be aware that there is more financial outlay to indoor production due to the running costs.

Outdoors

Nothing can beat nature and the true elements, for ensuring natural growth. The outdoor crops may not look as classy as the indoor ones, because they’re not as protected from the elements. The end result should still be the same, provided the plants have a good carer.

You still need a reasonable financial outlay with your outdoor setup, but the running costs are free.

If you’re environmentally responsible, then growing outdoors makes a better eco-system. A study in 2011 showed that the energy used for indoor growing of cannabis was equal to 3-million cars on the road. This shows you how much energy could otherwise be saved if you grew your cannabis plants outdoor.

Some have no choice but to grow indoors. They may not have access to outdoor spaces, or their climate might not suitable for growing outside. Whichever option you choose, we've got both covered.

Lifecycle:

Let's think about the stages of a marijuana plant:

The first stages are from seed to germination.

The growth of the greenery is when it reaches its full height.

The pre-flowering stage is usually when you identify the gender of your plant, depending on whether you have buds or sacs developing.

The process may involve male and female pollination, but you're about to learn if this is necessary or not.

This is followed by flowering.

And, finally, the harvesting.

While all this is happening, we'll take you through how to care for and monitor the condition of your plants. Learn to understand the differing leaf colouring and various flowering phases. Know when it's the right time to harvest. Then learn how to cure buds in jars.

If you want a quality pure marijuana, then let’s get started.
