3 Reasons why your cannabis plants grow very slowly
Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 18 October, 2022
When you grow your own cannabis, in addition to offering the best conditions for your plants to develop, it is ideal that you constantly keep an eye on your plantation in case of any irregularity.
One of the drawbacks that can occur in your growing pot is that your flowers grow too slowly. There are many reasons why this can happen, here are 3 of them.
Why my plants grow so slowly
1- The plants do not receive enough light
Although the needs of each plant may vary, they will all agree that they need a minimum of light exposure to grow. That is why it is essential that you make sure your girls get enough light.
If you are growing indoors, make sure you place the lamps at the correct distance. Outdoors you can choose to plant your flowers in pots, so you can move them in case you need to maximize exposure to sunlight.
2- Root problems
In general, when the roots of your plants do not receive enough oxygen, they may stop growing completely or slow down their growth. Many times this happens due to overwatering or the use of poorly draining substrates.
When you start your plantation, be sure to prepare a light and aerated substrate with good drainage to grow your plants.
3- Lighting stress
During the flowering stage, cannabis plants are especially susceptible to interruptions of the dark cycle. That is why, if external lights interfere during this period, they can cause problems such as causing your girls to return to the vegetative phase or to flower prematurely, which will greatly harm the development and production of your flowers.
