There are a great variety of fertilizers that may be used for Marijuana; they come in all shapes and sizes, most often liquid or water soluble. Most of them are pretty efficient and will achieve the desired results of producing a good yield. These fertilizers can range from being easy-to-get in a nearby hydroponics or gardening store or are highly peculiar and can only be found online. It might not matter which ones you use, but it’s important to know what makes a good marijuana fertilizer so that it’s easier for you to find the best fitting one for your grow.
Cannabis crops have to rely on additional fertilizer to get it’s balanced essential nutritional components. Commercial chemical fertilizers are highly concentrated and offer a better market value. Just water and light are not enough; you need to use the right fertilizer at the right time for optimum results. Most marijuana fertilizers that are bought from a store are chemically built to contain a specific ratio of nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K). This helps provide the needed nutrient content valued by most plants. This is known also as the NPK ratio. Marijuana fertilizer labels will also give you the information on how much you should be feeding your plants and how often you will need to. The best known organic fertilizer known to man is urine but of course using it directly on your plants is not the right way. An ample amount of urea content in your fertilizer or soil is one of the best things you can do to produce a good yield. Make sure the nitrogen content is never too high, as it might damage the plants.
The key to a good harvest of marijuana is a good soil with proper nutrients. Besides nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, a lesser amount of calcium, magnesium, and sulfur (which are called micronutrients), are also substantially helpful in making a good fertilizer. Using organic/natural substances like alfalfa meal, cottonseed meal, or fish emulsion help to fill in for the necessary nutrients within the fertilizer. Bone meal/rock phosphate provides with phosphorus; and kelp meal/granite meal provides potassium. All of these components together make for a good marijuana fertilizer.
