Weeds are called weeds for good reasons. Collections of unloved plants, these relentless species have the ability to survive under a vast variety of environments. Stealing light and nutrients from agricultural crops, weeds have been rightfully awarded defining terms like “worthless” and “annoyances.” Ontarioweeds.com was designed to be an ever-growing knowledge base of these pest plants. Combining biological and identifying characteristics of top interfering species along with new emerging research articles, media, and control options, weedinfo.ca provides the tools to make informed risk-reducing weed control decisions. Controlling weeds in agricultural crops is a constant battle for farm managers. The first step in any war is to know your enemy.
Weed Flavors and Heads
Some weed varieties such as Green Crack or Big Bud also tend to produce larger heads. But how do professional growers manage to grow such high-quality weed-strain flavors? Cannabis buds are the parts that contain most of the THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid of cannabis. This is basically what consumers are looking for, and the reason for wanting big bud heads. THC can also be found in cannabis leaves, but in much smaller proportions than the heads. The heads of cannabis correspond to the flowers of the plant. They do not appear until the flowering stage, which follows the growth stage of the plant. The vegetative stage allows the plant to grow and prepare to receive beautiful flowers.
The flowers appear on male plants and on female Cannabis plants. Although both sexes produce THC, females are more powerful, and when pollinated by males, they are no longer able to produce such powerful flowers because they spend their energy on seed production (do not look for of allegories with everyday life ). Despite everything, males can also be eaten. Their reputation comes mainly from the fact that they diminish the potential of female plants
, and are discarded from the moment the cannabiculturist is able to distinguish the first sexual signs. Males usually appear before females, with small round flowers, while females have beautiful, white, hairy flowers (pistils).
Accelerate the growth rate of the weed heads
The most important rule, even if it seems obvious, is that the faster the heads grow, the more heads you will have at harvest. To accelerate the growth of the heads, there are different parameters.
Pruning includes all available size methods. The first and perhaps most effective way to accelerate the growth of your plants once they are in bloom is to remove all the leaves that are starting to turn yellow. They will not fall, so you better take them off. Otherwise, they will continue to pump precious resources that should instead be allocated to head growth. You can also clean all leaves that do not receive light directly. Other methods are to cut the upper part of the plant: topping or super cropping. Several tools are at your disposal, with different results.
When the plants come into bloom, you should think about starting a new fertilizer regime
. Plants require more phosphorus when they bloom. You will then be able to choose a "NPK 10-30-10" fertilizer mix.
Carbon dioxide usually helps plants grow faster and absorb more light. If you combine, for example, the increase in light intensity with the addition of carbon dioxide, you will achieve very good results. Be careful not to put too much. If it is effective for plants, this gas is dangerous for humans (less than monoxide, but still).
Temperature and humidity
The key in temperature and humidity is to always monitor them and have consistent values. It is both important in the vegetative phase and during flowering. Pay attention that the temperature and humidity are adjusted correctly according to each stage of growth.
