Being a medical marijuana grower I spend a lot of my time trying to find ways to maximize my marijuana yields, by using the amount of plants the state allows me to have. I grow for myself only, but I do help out other medical marijuana patients and caregivers with clones from time to time. (no charge of course) I have tried and tested many theories over the years, and would like to share with you the ones that have and are working for me now.
Maximizing Your Marijuana Yield
1. Lighting : To help out in the lighting department try a Light Track. This will help with eliminating those shaded areas and allow for more uniform growth and development with your marijuana plants. You can now cover twice the growing coverage with the same light. The price will set you back $100-$500 dollars depending on the model you chose.
2. Method of Growing: I would use some form of Hydroponics. I feel hydroponics is far better then growing in soil because you can give your plants the maximum levels of nutrients possible to gain higher yields at a faster rate.(Precise control of your nutrients is Key) I use a Ebb and Flow hydroponic system and get Killer results. You can buy a Ebb and Flow system for around $250 dollars or you can check out my video on How to build your own ebb n flow system for under $50 dollars.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4k4OC4KPFsg)
3. Adding CO2: Growth rates can be increased dramatically if the CO2 level is near 700 ppm, which is “Ideal” for marijuana plants.(my opinion) The air outside is around 300 ppm, at 2000 your plants can burn, and at 4,900 ppm death will be coming. (Plants Burn) 5000 ppm (Death) CO2 is quickly used around a marijuana leaf and needs to be replaced every few minutes for a rapid growth. With having all the ideal factors of your temp, ventilation, circulation, and a air-tight grow room you can expect gains around 30% and I have heard of up to 50%. CO2 can set you back an easy $200-$500 dollars to get started.
There are plenty of other ways to maximize your medical marijuana yield, I thought of these being up at the top of the list. As always send questions andcomments to medicalmarijuanaadvisor.net and don’t forget to sign up for my FREE marijuana NEWSLETTER.
