cannabis limiting factors
20 years of swamp weed, i would never grow any other way, its really set and forget, because you dont need to water, most seasons are 5 visits in a 9 month grow cycle, have not been ripped of in 23 years, and with all the water they can drink, ive never seen growth rates like it, with raised mounds heaps of fert and per lite the growth is as good as it gets, when male pulling time comes just halfway through growth cycle, to see plants so far above my head, with total neglect, really is jaw dropping stuf, the limiting growth factors i have learned are
1-- a very aerated mix, this is the main difference in my a pinion between a good or bad mix, the more air to the roots, the better.
2--constant food supply, a long time ago i learned to use 1 third fast release to 1 third medium release to third slow release, if you use all of these, there is a constant supply of nutes from day 1 to harvest..
3-ph depending on PH, between 9-12 hand fulls of dolomite lime per square meter, this holds the PH and gives a steady supply of MG, all though the growth cycle,
4-with the mix taken care of the other limiting factor is tying everything down, the more growth horizontal growth the better, so every plant and,branches tyed down in a horizontal position, tye every thing you can down.
for many years research has tought me the 1- 4 factors are all the factors you can tweak, , i always thought they were all,the limiting factors,, what i mean if there's constant supply of nutes good sized raise mounds and that much per lite added it would be stupid to add more per lite continual supply of water and the right PH, , with the exception of added PK with the onset of flower, and PK rich fert added when removing males, most seasons the rain starts around march, so most time added PK gets watered in on time, for flower, with all the supplements and hydro additives on the market, is there still room for improvement for a isolated crop, i have tried some products canalizm root sonic and beneficial bacteria, hope i spelled those right, but just cants see or tell if they make a difference, is there now ways to improve a old school grow with these new hydro additives,,they seem directed at hydro, but are there now more factors to increase a guerrilla grow these days
