Have you ever thought about how some growers get higher yields than others?
Simply invest a bunch of money into equipment for their plants to be pampered enough to grow huge, juicy buds?
Or do they invest in really high-quality seeds from a reputable source, with excellent genetics?
Well, folks, I’m here to tell you it’s a little of both. Nature and nurture both play a huge role in the health and success of your marijuana plants.
Many growers will tell you that genetics are everything in growing marijuana, but if you completely neglect your plants during their lives, then there’s only so much genetics can do. So both are crucial!
Under the right circumstances these flowers’ genetics can even turn them purple!
Buying high-quality seeds is not always a simple task. Often individual seeds can vary even within one specific strain, making it tricky to predict exactly what those little guys are going to do during the grow season. Your actual care of the plants is what makes a big difference.
Of course, if you personally witnessed the plant that gave you the seeds you’re now growing you can predict some things. But, this is the only way to get a specific idea of what kind of plant you’ll end up with. This is why your best plant is the one you should clone or seed — it ensures a high-quality grow season next time around.
But you’re going to need to do more than just plant your seeds and hope for the best if you want a high yield. Do the research, or that first yield probably won’t get as high as you’d like.
But this is common so expect future seasons to get better and better!
There are nearly always roadblocks that come up when you are growing marijuana (or any plant, for that matter), and every obstacle slows down the growth and therefore lessens the yield.
However, you can help prepare your plants by strengthening them to make sure they grow to their full potential.
