Once you’ve done the last transplant, you can enrich your soil with guano in a big pot or in the ground. You should fill your pot or a hole in the ground with a decent sublayer that adapts nicely to the soil. Then mix it with guano, about a spoon full per 7L of soil. For a bag of 50L, 7 or 8 spoonfuls should be enough. Bat guano is a slow absorbing nutrient, with high levels of phosphorus and potassium,. This is exactly what your plants are going to need in about a month.
With that said, we’re practically at the end of our outdoor harvest; your product should be amazing quality for the amount of work it required. About 15 days before harvesting your plant, you need to wash out the soil with a lot of water so that you get rid of the excess nutrients and the plant is as clean as possible for harvest.
Here are some basic steps to get an abundant, healthy, harvest, with some help from the sun and a few extra things. Growing weed outdoors can be a task; if you plant it with just soil, water and sun, you’ll get something similar to cannabis but it won’t be the real deal. In order to get an acceptable final result, you’ll need to follow some specific steps.
Feeding Charts and pH levels
Before you move your plant to the pot or to the ground, you’ll need to make a groove around the trunk so you can apply the dosage, and then cover up the groove. When you water the plant, the nutrients will slowly filter to the bottom and your plant will have more than enough for the flowering phase with the help of Bio Flowers or a complete flowering compost.
If you neglect to transplant your plants when they need it, they will surely stop growing. If you leave your plants in the same pot for too long, the leaves will start turning up with brown stains on them; eventually the leaves will fall off and you’ll end up with a weak plant without enough energy to flower. This means you’ll end up with an extremely low production rate and you won’t even be able to smoke it.
When summer is around the corner, around the 24 th of June, the days will start getting shorter and in a few weeks your plants should start flowering. This means that as we come into July, you’ll want to move your plant to its permanent home. Marijuana plants need to be transplanted just before they begin to flower, because they shoot up and begin releasing flowers. This will obviously be the last transplant you do, due to the fact that you should never move your plants when they’re flowering, nor should you cut anything off of the plant during this phase. You could transplant your crop to the ground, even before the plants begin flowering, but it’s most definitely better to use plant pots, because:
After about 10 days, the plant should have grown so much that it’s almost doubling over. This is when you should transplant the plant to a bigger pot, about 3,5L. In this new pot, bury the trunk of the plant about two thirds, 6 to 10cm, so that extra roots are released into the soil and the plant is much more stable, increaing production. Then, water around the edges until the water begins to be absorbed by the plant. Be careful, because if you water the trunk directly, the plant may begin to rot.
