How to water marijuana plants in soil

How to water marijuana plants in soil

First of all, you should know that choosing the type of soil is very important; for this reason you should look for a light, airy soil that can retain sufficient amount of water. The key is to find the balance: neither too much nor too little, the right choice basically depends upon every grower and his/her feeding schedule.

To improve your substrate in terms of water retention, you should use perlite and coco fibre. The proportions of these elements are also up to the grower, but often range from 10 to 20% of perlite, and 10 to 30% of coco fibre.

Most soil bags sold at grow shops already contain these materials with a pH suitable for growing marijuana. Philosopher Seeds highly recommends choosing these ones instead of buying substrate from the usual garden centre.

pH and EC in marijuana growing

pH and EC in marijuana growing

Philosopher Seeds always encourages its customers to monitor the water pH and EC when watering and fertilising their marihuana plants: if these values are properly adjusted and under control, we ensure that our plants absorb all the necessary nutrients, keeping them healthy, without any kind of deficiency and getting the maximum yields.

pH is the coefficient that indicates how acid or alkaline the water is. Later on, we will show you how a different pH range is required depending on the growing medium.

EC is the electrical conductivity of water; in other words, the amount of salts dissolved therein. The more nutrients we use, the higher EC values we'll get.

Growing autoflowering plants outdoors

Growing autoflowering plants outdoors

Philosopher Seeds cares about all growers who want to use new strategies and techniques to improve their season crops. This is why autoflowering cannabis strains are becoming the first choice for many users to the detriment of regular and feminized seeds. These small plants end their full life cycle in just 70-80 days from seed germination, what makes that lots of growers prefer this type of seeds to be able to perform several crops per year: spring, summer and even autumm if temperatures are mild enough. They allow us to get excellent and abundant harvests at a very affordable price. Its feeding is easy, and they don't grow more than 1 meter tall, being discreet and perfect for guerrilla crops. The more hours of daylight, the better, so choosing the right spot to plant them is very important. If they receive a minimum of 10 hours of light per day, they develop compact and dense flowers with a thick layer of resin glands. Philosopher Seeds offers three autoflowering strains:  Cheesy Auto , White Yoda Auto and Fraggle Skunk Auto . Three stable and autoflowering varieties that can yield more than 100gr per plant.

The top three most productive marijuana strains

In this top three list we will show you our most productive varieties, with which you'll get the highest amount of first grade buds, completely coated with resin. These strains are suitable for both indoor and outdoor crops, perfect to make resin extractions , gathering our beloved trichome glands. Philosopher Seeds works to offer high-yielding hybrids and purebreds with very particular organoleptic and psychoactive properties. A very interesting selection to tell you the main characteristics of these strains so you can easily choose which one suits best your needs and possibilities.

Jack el Frutero's yields

Jack el Frutero has a fast and vigorous growth, well-branched and with few leaves. The Jack the Ripper parent provides stability in the cross. Due to its Sativa dominance, we recommend starting the crop from seed placing 9-16 plants per square meter. This number of plants can be increased to 20-25 plants if we shorten the vegetative period to 1 week, beginning the flowering period practically from seed germination (7-10 days at 18/6 photoperiod). When growing Jack el Frutero you need a minimum of 60-70 days to get fully ripe buds.

Basic genetics applied to marijuana strains

Basic genetics applied to marijuana strains

To be able to create stable and top-quality marijuana strains, our breeding team always takes into account several basic plant genetic concepts that help us stabilizing the desired traits from our parents to their offspring. Mendel's Laws (Gregor Mendel 1885-86)  were the foundations upon which plant genetics were based, explaining the inherintance  of different traits among individuals of the same species. Thanks to these Laws, nowadays we can create autoflowering, purple or high-CBD strains, besides the large number of possibilities that arise if they are correctly understood.  First, we all should know what is a landrace and what is an IBL (Inbred Line).

Growing Fruity Jack marijuana

In this post, Philosopher Seeds' team presents a growing report of one of our most demanded strains, Fruity Jack from our line Golo Line. To create this hybryd, Philosopher Seeds joined forces with Reggae Seeds, widely known for their Juanita la Lagrimosa strain, a crosiing between the New York City Diesel from Soma and Reina Madre from Mario Bellandi's Delicatessen Seeds, a renowned activist and prestigious cannabis breeder. The result of this crossing was surprising;  the resuting strain had a 1:1 THC:CBD ratio, reaching 9% CBD levels in the best specimens. Since then, a lot of seedbanks and seed producers have greatly benefited from the work and efforts of this humble and commited cannabis seedbank.
