The Basics of Growing

A fertilized female flower develops a single seed, wrapped in bracts. In thick clusters, they form the seed-filled buds that make up most fine imported marijuana. After pollination, mature viable seeds take from ten days to

five weeks to develop. When seeds are desired, the plant is harvested when enough seeds have reached full color. For a fully seeded plant, this often takes place when the plant has stopped growth and is, in fact, dying.

Now that you've read about the basics of marijuana, you should know how marijuana grows, what your plants need in order to grow, and the cycle of life in which they grow. The next chapter gives you the basics on how indoor hydroponics can be used to harvest up to six marijuana crops every year!
