10 Most Common Mistakes When Growing Cannabis

This mistake is a lot like the last one we described.

It’s easy to get carried away with your love for your cannabis plants. And because you love them so much, you want to give them as much fertilizer as you can.

But stop it. That’s hurting the plants.

Do not fertilize every time you water. That’s just too much, and you’re going to burn out your plants.

A good rule of thumb is to use one-quarter of the recommended dosage for whatever fertilizer you’re using.

Most fertilizer companies give guidelines that are too high. So if you cut that recommendation down to 25%, you’ll be right on target.

8. Growing Environment

This mistake is especially relevant to people growing indoors.

Here are the guidelines you need to follow to be sure your plants have the ideal growing environment:

  • Humidity between 30% – 70%
  • Temperature between 75°F – 85°F
  • Enough air circulation so that air is fully replaced every 5-10 minutes
