The human being is not the only species that likes the cannabis. Some insects and larger creatures also feed on marijuana plants whenever they get the chance. But don’t worry, because this has an easy solution, you just have to implement the following steps.
Inspect your plants regularly (stem, bundle and bottom of leaves and buds) for pests. You can remove them by hand or introduce beneficial insects, such as ladybugs, to eliminate them from your growing space. Use these techniques to learn how to identify and prevent infections such as bud rot.
Nutrient deficiencies can also affect the crop. Fortunately, cannabis plants are very good at communicating their problems through their leaves. Use this guide to identify and treat specific deficiencies.
The deficiencies are not always produced by the absence of some element in the ground. Marijuana also needs a certain pH to absorb nutrients. If the pH is too high or too low, nutrient blockage can occur. It is recommended that a pH meter be used. Learn how to adjust the soil pH here. Although pH monitoring can be helpful, it is not a must, especially in your first crop.
