Successful Cultivation of Medical Marijuana

Successful cultivation of medical marijuana is neither a mystical pursuit nor a haphazard operation; furthermore, grow rooms themselves require no attention from high priests and shamans.

In fact, the application of direct and simple scientific methods is the road to exemplary and cost efficient results. For decades many growers have been misled by erroneous information and even today few gardeners have a working knowledge of basic cultivation methods.

Intense and comprehensive marketing campaigns have developed a huge industry of unneeded product lines.
That these lines flourish is evidence of how successful these strategies have been.

Certainly the promise of innovation and technological break-through is attractive to novice and professional cannabis growers alike. However, marketing often makes it difficult to discern useful innovation from costly hype. A typical trip to the grow shop reveals aisle upon aisle of products adorned with flashy labeling designed to appeal to the eye rather than the intellect of the medical marijuana grower.

By 1947 the requirements for cannabis nutrients were already widely known, and the practice of using N-P-K fertilizers with chelating agents had long been established.

Today, the trend is to employ twelve to fifteen products during a grow cycle when, in reality, all necessary elements can be combined into a one or two part cannabis fertilizer.

A major consideration when purchasing cannabis fertilizers should be the degree of the nutrient concentration within the solution.

Unfortunately, the majority of available cannabis fertilizers are overly dilute; and some fertilizer companies use wetting agents to artificially increase nutrient concentration and often add plant extracts that inflate cost but are not proven to effect yield.

Moreover, many elements in today’s medical marijuana fertilizers are not entirely in ionic form, making them unusable by the plant.
