Magnesium Deficiency in Cannabis in Relation to Light Strategy
Cannabis cultivation is a complex process, with many different factors affecting the growth and development of the plant. One of the most important aspects to consider to allow cannabis plants to thrive is the nutrient balance within the growing medium. Among these essential nutrients is magnesium, a mineral that plays a critical role in plant growth and development. In this article, we'll take a closer look at magnesium deficiency in cannabis cultivation. This article is the last one of the sequence written following an interview with Ryan Wankel.
Dry Backs and Their Benefits for Your Cannabis Cultivation
“I think dry backing is probably one of the techniques that a lot of growers use to increase cannabinoids and flavonoids content” Ryan mentioned. But how does it work and what does it really mean? This article is a continuation of the previous one, following an interview with Ryan Wankel, and will focus on the cultivation manipulation known as Dry Backs.
The Daily Dynamics Within the Root Zone of a Cannabis Plant When Grown on Stone Wool
Previous articles have presented, among others, information regarding the importance of irrigation strategies, crop steering, measuring WC and EC in the stone wool, and more. In this article we discuss the ideal 24-hours irrigation dynamics for cannabis cultivation on stone wool.
Precision Growing; What Should be Measured in the Substrate, How to Do That, and Why?
The importance of WC, EC, and pH for cannabis cultivation was discussed in previous articles. As it was mentioned, there are several target levels to maintain in the stone wool; WC between 50 to 90%, EC of minimum 1.5 mS/cm in propagation, and about 2.5-2.8 mS/cm for the solution during vegetative to flowering (and an EC of the substrate between 3 to 6 mS/cm), and a pH between 5.5 to 5.8.
Stone Wool Saturation: Why it is Important and How to do it Right
Similarly to other growing mediums, when stone wool is delivered it is dry, meaning, it contains 0% water. It has many benefits, such as lighter weight, more convenient transportation, and longer shelf-life for unused products. Therefore, when a grower plans to start the cultivation of cannabis, the first step (and a very critical one) is to initially saturate the stone wool.
