Growing big buds indoors

So if light is like food for your plant, think of CO2 as a way to give your plants a way to “stretch their bellies” and eat even more food than would normally be possible.

Another benefit of waiting until the right time to harvest is you can choose to harvest your buds when they have the exact effects you’re looking for. Harvest earlier for a more buzzy daytime high, and harvest later for a more relaxing, couchlock experience
This flat plant shape allows the whole plant to better use your existing grow lights, since a greater percentage of the plant is closer to the light source, which means that more of the plant is getting exposed to brighter light intensity.

I will cover 5 easy ways to increase your indoor marijuana yields at harvest time, no matter which strain you’re growing!
Learn about grow light options, so you can pick the most intense light possible for your grow space:

(and possibly add CO2 so plants can use even more light)
As long as your cannabis is not showing signs of nutrient burn or nutrient deficiencies, you’re in the “sweet spot” for optimum growth and yields
Lowering overall nutrient levels and letting the leaves yellow and die as harvest approaches has seemed to improve my bud yields compared to when I use full levels of nutrients until harvest, and it also seems to improve the final taste & smell of buds.

After you’ve germinated your seeds (or rooted your clones), one of the most important things to do right from the beginning is ensure that your plants are getting enough light.

Almost all indoor growers want bigger cannabis yields for less money, time and effort. Today I will cover 5 easy ways to increase your indoor marijuana yields at harvest time, no matter which…

Not only does LST result in bigger yields, the technique also allows you to control the height and shape of your plants. This is a godsend for those with small spaces doing “micro-grows.” Manipulating your branches into the desired shape can help you maintain a level canopy which also results in a bigger harvest of nice-sized buds.

HID (High Intensity Discharge) lights such as MH (Metal Halide) and HPS (High-Pressure Sodium) are most indoor growers lighting of choice—and for good reason. A variety of wattages, from 150, 250, 400, 600 to the mighty 1000-watt versions, make HID’s versatile and unmatched in their ability to deliver the essential lumens needed for plants to thrive inside.

Secure your lights using strong adjustable hangers so you can easily keep the bulbs at optimal levels.
Since there’s not nearly enough light, you must add it. Oscillating fans and watering wands duplicate wind and rain. Above all, understanding how to control the environment is the differentiating factor between the fruitful indoor pot producer and the ones who never seem to get it quite right.
A mixture of the two spectrums is ideal, but the prevailing wisdom is that MH bulbs are better for stacking nodes during the vegetative stage and HPS more closely mimic the golden-red glow of autumn sunshine. 400 to 600-watts can cover a 3’ x 3’ to 4’ x 4’ footprint, while 1000-watts will light a 5’ x 5’ space properly.
Leave tap water out overnight to dissipate the chlorine before adding your nutrients and applying to your plant’s roots.
Oscillating fans should ensure that all growing leaves wiggle in the wind, without getting completely blasted by a constant excessive breeze. An exhaust fan, located near the top of your grow space pulls air through an activated charcoal filter in order to clean it before setting it free.

Indoors, a whole different set of criteria apply.
