The Stages of Cannabis Growth
Cannabis plants follow a series of stages in their growth, just like any other plant. Understanding these stages will help you optimize your personal cannabis garden and ensure that you harvest the best possible yield!
Germination (1-2 weeks):
This is the stage where the cannabis seeds start to sprout. It can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks for the seeds to fully develop into a seedling.
Seedling (2-4 weeks):
During this period, the tiny plant grows its first set of leaves, called cotyledons, followed by the iconic cannabis leaf shape.
Vegetative (2-8 weeks):
This is the stage where the plant experiences rapid growth, with the growth of taller stems and larger leaves. The focus is on creating a strong plant structure that will support future blooms.
Flowering (8-11 weeks):
The plant now starts to produce buds, which are the primary source of cannabinoids like THC and CBD. Light exposure and nutrients play a critical role in determining the quality and potency of the final product.
How a Cannabis Plant Grows
Cannabis plants need light, water, and nutrients to grow. Cannabis thrives with the right balance of light (either natural or artificial light, depending on your setup), well-draining soil, and specific nutrients, particularly nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Check for any signs of undernourishment like yellowing of the leaves or slow growth rates.
Additionally, consider factors such as temperature, humidity, and airflow. A suitable environment for growing cannabis has temperatures around 70-85°F during the day and 50-65°F during the night, and relative humidity levels between 40%-70%, depending on the growth stage.
What Time of Year Should You Grow Cannabis Plants?
If you're looking to grow cannabis outdoors, the ideal time to plant your seeds is generally during spring, after the last frost and when temperatures remain consistently warm. The longer days allow plants to take in more sunlight, enhancing their growth potential. Conversely, as days get shorter in the fall, cannabis plants begin to transition into the flowering stage.
However, if you've set up an indoor growing area, you would generally have complete control over the environment and can grow cannabis almost year-round.
