Here’s why you want to grow indoor cannabis organically:
Broadly defined organic growing is a method of production using the by-products of recently living organisms and does not include the use of chemically-formulated fertilizers, growth hormones, antibiotics or pesticides. Without federal regulation, organic cannabis has a lot of leeway today. But savvy marijuana connoisseurs and those using weed for medicinal purposes know the difference between non-organic and organic cannabis.
With insulating qualities that reduce heat and improve cooling throughout your grow room, you actually cut down on lighting and cooling costs. And GrowFloor and GrowWall are eco-friendly – repositionable, reusable and recyclable – and they are so durable and easy to use, you’ll save on installation, maintenance and replacement costs for years.
The grow room flooring and growroom wall coverings you choose will also help you grow more green.
GrowFloor and GrowWall actually aid your lighting source by repelling UV rays and glare, and by preventing hot spots. They support the entire light spectrum, increasing lighting efficiency 400% over other grow room coverings by evenly reflecting your light sources throughout the growroom space.
With these great reasons to grow green cannabis, how do you get started? Here are some tips from the experts to grow a true organic cannabis crop using indoor gardening methods:
The Why and How of Growing Cannabis Organically Indoors
Examples of chemically-derived non-organic nutrients are Miracle-Gro, Peter’s and the popular General Hydroponics Flora Series three-part formula. These nutrients will grow plants with nice-looking, sizable flowers. But without implementing a long flush, these buds will burn like charcoal, with a black ash that continuously needs to be relit. I’ve smoked plenty of decent chemically-grown pot (and grown it in the past). But the same strains, grown organically, always win out in the final analysis.
Pouring salts and chemicals onto a dead medium and then down the drain does unnecessary damage to your local environment. It pollutes rivers, lakes and oceans.
In a natural setting, plants, dead animals and animal waste all collect over time on the forest floor. They decay with the help of bugs, bacteria, worms and fungus to provide nourishment in the topsoil layer that is vital to plant growth. This process, referred to as the “soil food web,” is how recently living organisms feed their future selves and complete the cycle of life and death. Roots thrive, aided by mycorrhizal fungi that help break down nutrients for easy accessibility and uptake. This top humic layer of soil is teeming with beneficial microbes and bacteria. This is what we try to re-create when we grow organic weed.
What Does “Organic” Mean?
The best cannabis cultivators always seek new ways to improve the quality of the flowers they produce. Some will still debate that there isn’t a difference between marijuana grown with chemicals and flowers grown organically. But savvy connoisseurs and well-informed patients prefer naturally produced pot. That’s why we’ve provided this handy step-by-step guide on how to grow organic weed.
An organic product can broadly be described as any product that’s derived from a recently living organism. To grow organic weed means that your growing medium and plant foods result from natural sources. Not from synthetic salt compounds conjured up in a lab. Organic particles are capable of decay or are sometimes the product of decay, unlike the concentrated chemical formulas designed to grow commercial crops cheaply.
Step 1: Why Grow Organic?
Take one look at some of the results of chemical agribusiness runoff, such as the Salton Sea in Southern California. You’ll see why nonorganic nutrients are never advisable. Rotting fish carcasses float on the salty foam of a dead sea, and the whole area reeks of a foul stench that’s clearly man-made. This isn’t the woodsy, earthy smell of natural decay prevalent in a compost pile; it’s the acrid odor of an early demise caused by overuse of toxic chemicals.
Cannabis growers should feel an obligation to use a healthy, living soil to produce truly medicinal and connoisseur-quality pot. Now, most nutrient companies provide organic alternatives that won’t clog drippers or stink up reservoirs, so even hydro growers can take advantage of more natural plant foods. Medicinal users who want to grow organic weed should especially take note of organic methods. There’s no longer any legitimate reason to use chemical formulas.
