Growing cannabis without fertilizer

While cannabis plants will grow in a lot of conditions, as a farmer, you are looking to optimize the size, weight, density, potency and overall quality of your buds. In order to do that, you will need to fertilize your cannabis plants in such a way that they can produce at their best.

Because of that, I encourage growers to learn about the type of nutrients and special fertilizers needed by a cannabis plant, and at least start with good soil before you get started growing if you're determined not to use any nutrients.

Cannabis plants which don't get the right levels they need, especially in the flowering/budding phase, tend to grow small and airy buds. In extremely poor conditions, some cannabis plants may just sprout a few white hairs (pistils), and never actually form any real buds at all.

Soil has varying degrees of nutrients. A sterile "soilless" medium such as coco will have very little to no nutrients, while rich organic soil might have more than enough for a crop of cannabis. Even tap water has some nutrients in the form of dissolved solids.

If you check out the organic section you will see a lot of people who are growing with "super soil" which is highly amended poting soil that doesn’t need anything other than water to grow some great looking cannabis.

all plants need NPK or they will just start,grow alittle and die.

This does not mean that it won’t grow without fertilizer, as not all nutrients are derived from fertilizer.

No because cannabis will not grow without nutrients.

all plants need nutes, i use tap water myself but i let it sit for a few days before use to let the chlorine vapor off.
theres only calcium and some magnesium in tap water but those are just trace elements, and a trace is all a plant needs of some things.
but when it comes down to the NPK (nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) human assistance is needed.
