Being a lover of healthy Marijuana plants, here I am trying to enlighten people with the chemical-free Marijuana crop…
Fertilizers for your Marijuana Plant…
Of course, Marijuana plants are highly resourceful and very less-demanding when it comes to their cultivation. But, just like every other plant, they have a few basic nutritional requirements that need to be met, which will lead to higher yields. Now, how are these nutritional requirements met?? Fertilizers. By fertilizers, do we mean the ones that are loaded with a whole lot of chemicals? No. We mean organic fertilizers that are made of naturally available products like plant waste, animal waste, combined with the glacial gypsum or rock dust which will contain beneficial minerals that are needed by your plants.
Why are chemical fertilizers so popular, in spite of the harmful effects they can have?
Ever wondered? These actually make the job easy for the gardeners, who don’t have to prepare the compost, segregate the waste, wait for it to rot, etc; straight from the market to the soil, and they are quick too. This is because, the nutrients are made available to the plants directly, unlike in the case of organic fertilizers. But, this quick and easy availability also has a harmful effect on the plants, and that is chemical fertilizers burn and kill the plants, due to over-feeding. Also, half the time, these chemical fertilizers, give Marijuana a very bad taste and makes it difficult to burn, or burn too hot and is hard on the throat. The biggest disadvantage of using the chemical fertilizers is that it will spoil the soil quality over time, and make it unfit for any cultivation, if organic material is not also provided. Too much fertilizer will leach into the creeks, rivers , lakes and eventually oceans these are not good for the environment too.
This was all about plants, soil, and environment. Now, coming to you; what would happen if you consume this marijuana grown with the help of these so-called fertilizers? It is not only fertilizers that a few farmers use, but they also use pesticides, and other chemicals to ”enhance” the growth, all of which, can have a negative impact on the end user. When you consume marijuana grown this way, you will be ingesting various heavy metals like, Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Arsenic, etc., all of which are harmful to your body and cause dreadful diseases with prolonged usage.
Now let us say, hello to the contrasting world of healthy Marijuana that is grown using organic or healthy means of cultivation.
Let’s see the good things that happen when you use, organic fertilizers for your Marijuana plants, first.
– Organic Fertilizers or the manure will increase the soil quality or fertility gradually, along with microbial concentration. Microbes are very much important for the nutrient absorption, in the plants.
– The nutrients released by the manure will infuse with the soil, so closely that, nutrient runoff, is a rare case. The nutrients are released by the manure slowly, which means, there will be no overfeeding and burning that would kill the Marijuana plants.
– Organically fertilized soil will have high aeration capacity and water retention capacity, which will keep your plants healthy and nourished.
-Marijuana strains cultivated using organic fertilizers will be healthy, aromatic and a lot tasty too as well as burn better.
Well, there are a few disadvantages, or rather limitations, with respect to these organic fertilizers too. However, these are not dreadful, as the ones with chemical fertilizers:
– Plants take a little longer time to absorb the nutrients from the organic fertilizers.
– These fertilizers that need micro-organisms for the nutrient breakdown, which will make the nutrient a availability harder for the plants in colder temperatures.
However the above-said limitations are, initial stage glitches only, and addressing these is a lot easy with a few smart methods that will speed up the nutrient breakdown.
As the bottom note, it is important for you to know that, the nutrients that are given to the plants should neither harm the plants nor its end-user; instead, it should enhance the positive properties of those plants, for safer consumption over time.
