Lets talk a little bit about autoflowering cannabis, and how to grow it without nutrients to avoid that horrible burn and possible decrease in yields. These girls are modified to stay small and compact, jump starting themselves directly into the flowering stage. Ultimately these cannabis plants are very fragile, and in no way need anywhere close to the amount of nutrients a full size photosynthesis plant would need. So you need to keep your idea of an aggressive nutrient plan at bay and possibly think of an organic option.
We have a few suggestions that can help along the way if your interested in adding autoflowering cannabis to your collection.
Autoflowering Super Soil
This is the idea of having a one step solution for growing autoflowering plants. You essentially just monitor your pH levels in the water your using and give your cannabis plant just that water alone. The super soil naturally includes all of the essentials you are going to need throughout the life cycle of your autoflowering plant which totally wipes out the need for synthetic nutrients or additives.
You have two options when choosing your super soil, or one step soil. You can either make it your self with the different components and ingredients to save money, or simply buy a premade mix which takes out any guess work and allows you to plug and play. You can experiment with both options to really dial in your cannabis grow, after all every strain is different and when you really figure out what it is that cannabis plant wants she can be very rewarding in sense of yield.
We recommend researching Subcool's Super Soil recipe if you are interested in making your own cannabis soil. This method is better suited for experienced growers who understand the different NPK ratios, this will help with mixing and customizing the super soil to your specific needs.
Roots Organic Potting Soil
For marijuana to be considered organic it must be produced with mostly living components, which will all around enhance cannabis plant quality, and provide a naturally rich tasting flower. Finding the best organic mixture for growing cannabis is the first and most important step to get started.
The art of growing organic cannabis involves techniques that do not use any fertilizers, pesticides and sometimes even soil-less.
Instead growing mediums will include a compound of organic material such as; worm castings, bat guano, seabird guano, manure, sea kelp, steamed bone meal, blood meal, oat bran, fish, plus a variety of many more composts. Some growers have come up with their own combination of organic material and simply call it a "Super Soil" mix. You essentially just have to supply your cannabis plants with fresh clean water, and keep an eye on your pH levels so your plant is able to feed on the available organic nutrients.
Tips For Growing Organic Cannabis
Some of the best composts have included fruit and fruit bearing vines such as blueberries and watermelons. This technique will provide concentrated sources of calcium, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphates and potash.
Cannabis grown in a medium that includes; bat guano, rabbit manure, worm castings and blueberry vines will provide noticeable differences and really lock in the natural, rich earthy flavor organic cannabis is known for.
Pay close attention to growing medium acidity levels. When adding different growth materials in your mix it is important to manage your pH levels in order to keep a controlled environment.
Organic cannabis will grow a little slower than hydroponics, or seeds that were started in nutrient rich soil. Yet when given proper care and harvested correctly the taste and flavor can not compare. Additionally, organic cannabis has shown increased THC crystal production and overall high potency and quality.
When you use organic growing techniques you are fully aware of what is inside your dried cannabis and smoking is just a bit more smooth due to the absence of synthetic fertilizers and supplements.
The nutrient levels and flavor of cannabis grown organically will always surpass marijuana grown in synthetic fertilizer and soil. When growing organically all of your supplements are already naturally included in the mix.
When using an organic mix for growing there is no need for a flush cycle, there have been no chemicals added so there is no need to remove any chemical or fertilizer taste.
When you do not have to add supplements or undergo a flush cycle your cannabis grow starts to become more easier to facilitate. There is no guess work involved with measuring and estimating what your plant needs and when, no to mention organic cannabis is a lot more resilient to disease.
In conclusion, organic marijuana is clean burning with a lot of flavor, it is environmentally friendly and will never pose a risk to your health.
