Nutrients: Organic fertilizers such as compost or fish meal are ideal nutrition to help your outdoor cannabis plants flower. Use the fertilizer sparingly, though, as plants are more likely to die from overfeeding than undernourishment.

It might be easier to grow marijuana outdoors if you live in an ideal climate, or indoors if you have a grow room. If you live in a dry, temperate climate with loads of sunshine, like San Diego or the Mediterranean, then growing weed outdoors may be the way to go. If you have ample space in your home, along with an efficient lighting system and temperature controls, then your marijuana plants may fare well indoors.

Water: Anything less than emerald green leaves means it’s time to water your plants, but the quality of water is just as important as the quantity. A handheld water quality meter will help you measure the mineral and chemical content of your water. You can also use the meter to track pH levels, which are best at 5.5 to 6.5 for indoor cannabis. Come up with a watering schedule, add a few simple supplies, and you’ll be equipped to keep your weed hydrated.

Light: Natural light will keep your cannabis in optimal health if you’re cultivating outdoors. Just make sure you plant in a spot with at least eight hours of direct sunlight a day, and nature will do the rest.

Temperature: As with it is indoors, the ideal temperature for growing weed outdoors is between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit during the day with nighttime temperatures above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Exact numbers vary depending on the stage of the plant (seedling, flowering, etc.), but always avoid extreme temperatures.

Should you grow weed indoors or outdoors?

Nutrients: If you grow weed indoors, there’s a good chance you’ll use a hydroponics system rather than soil. Hydroponics involves the use of mineral nutrient solutions within a water solvent. The benefits of hydroponics include up to 90% more efficient water use, as well as an equally efficient utilization of space, which is key when using your home to grow weed. While a good hydroponics system can cost upwards of $1,000, it is a solid investment that covers water and nutrients in one solution.

Temperature: Temperate is the name of the game when growing weed indoors and you’ll want to maintain a consistent temperature between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, and not less than 60 degrees at night. Depending on where you live, you may need to adjust your thermostat, or you may be able to let your cannabis grow at room temperature.

Medical m arijuana has had a huge impact on my life, and I'm dedicated to showing you how easy it can be to grow your own medical-grade buds.

Some growers believe it's better to give marijuana plants 18 hours of light a day max, with a 6 hour dark period during the vegetative stage.

The truth is, you can grow weed in only 20-30 minutes a week when you use the right techniques and get used to the process of growing. The following article reveals the best way we know to grow lots of potent bud while using a minimum amount of time to do so. We make this happen using a hydroponic style of growing known as Top-fed DWC (aka "bubbleponics").

Now that you're equipped with the information to get you to harvest as soon as possible, let's quickly address another common question we receive about time.

6.) Pay Attention To Your Plants and Quickly React to Problems

So for example, Northern Lights has a flowering stage length of about 8 weeks. If you flowered a Northern Lights strain plant from seed, your buds would be ready to harvest in about 11-12 weeks.

This is why you need to either mix your nutrients by hand, or choose a nutrient system that is specifically formulated for the flowering stage of a plant like marijuana. By providing the right nutrients at the right time, you'll reduce your overall time to harvest.

For example, the following plant problems will add time onto your grow

3.) Give Plants 24 Hours of Light per Day During the Vegetative Stage

After your cannabis buds have dried (thin stems snap, but the thicker stems are still a bit bendy), it’s time to start curing them so they’re smooth, taste good, smell good, and have the best effects.

I personally think that cannabis tends to be more potent if you cure it for at least a month.

Unless you know someone who has experience growing with a particular model of LED light, you’ll often spend a grow or two trying to get your light model “dialed in” so you know how far away to keep the lights from your plants for best results.

What does a cannabis plant need to thrive?


On average, I’d say it takes a grower about 3 – 5 months to grow, harvest and cure their own buds.

Step 9: Harvest Your Weed

For those growers lucky enough to know other cannabis growers in real life, getting plants is usually pretty simple. Many cannabis collectives and dispensaries will happily sell you clones though they tend to be a little less liberal when it comes to selling seeds. A great advantage of purchasing clones or seeds from a trusted source is that you know you can trust the genetics you are receiving.
