What nutrients are needed to grow cannabis?

Required Macro and Micro Nutrients for Growing Cannabis

Macronutrients (also referred to as the NPK ratio (N – roots, P – stems, K – flowers).

Nitrogen

Nitrogen is required by all types of plants, not just cannabis plants, because it is an essential element in the plant growth process. So make sure that the soil has plenty of nitrogen when you are starting to grow cannabis from marijuana seeds or clones.

Phosphorus

Another very important nutrient that helps the cannabis plants store and transfer energy. Marijuana uses phosphorus to grow healthy stems.

Potassium

Potassium helps the cannabis plants with their water uptake and marijuana flowering process. Potassium is heavily used by marijuana plants during the flowering process and is also responsible for helping the cannabis plants develop their cell walls.

Micronutrients needed to grow marijuana

Sulfur

Sulfur is like a super drug for the cannabis plants; it helps pot plants fight off diseases and pests that can appear when growing cannabis. Sulfur also helps cannabis plants cope with environmental fluctuations and other kinds of stress.

Calcium

When growing cannabis plants, makes sure that you provide them with a healthy dose of calcium. It allows the marijuana plants to build strong roots and stems.

Magnesium

Magnesium in itself doesn’t play an important role in the growth to cannabis plants, but it does provide an important function of transporting other minerals, like phosphorous, throughout the body of the marijuana plant.

Other Nutrients

Some other nutrients, often referred to as trace nutrients; also play an important role in the growth of the plant. Most cannabis nutrient lines, such as Canna, will have these trace nutrients in their main base nutrients.

How can myco-treated soil help my cannabis plants?

Preferably, you should get quality and porous soil before you plant the marijuana plants. The use of myco-treated soil will help chelation and absorption of nutrients in your cannabis plant root system. They will be able to absorb more nutrients and grow bigger which especially important during flowering phase. Myco will also help cannabis plants have a healthy root system which will help the weed plant will produce big and healthy cannabis buds. There are many good nutrient lines for growing cannabis such as Canna or Emerald Harvest. For any kind of additive that you are considering using on marijuana plants, do your own homework and find out what is in it. Burning cannabis plants due to over-fertilization happens a lot so be careful. Less is more when it comes to fertilizing your marijuana plants. You will soon be on your way to growing healthy, not to mention profitable, pot plants.
