Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 7 March, 2022
When you grow marijuana, regardless of whether you do it indoors or outdoors, you are not exempt from having your plantation invaded by pests.
Of course, no cannabis grower wants these intruders to show up in their garden because if they are not detected in time, they can cause a lot of damage to your flowers.
If you want to keep the annoying pests away, we recommend that you follow some tips that we are going to present to you:
1- Watch your plants
A fundamental aspect that you must take into account is to be aware of your plants constantly. If you notice an alarm signal, you will be able to act quickly.
Pay attention to the symptoms or transformations that your strains may show, such as color changes and deformations in the leaves.
Although there are varieties that are resistant to pests, detecting them in time can make a difference in your harvest.
2- Associated growing
One aspect you can consider is the association of growing. Certain plants are ideal for repelling pests that you can use on your plantation.
Some examples of favorable growing are lavender, cilantro, basil, and mint.
3- Use neem oil
Neem oil is one of the most beneficial natural insecticides that you can use in your marijuana growing, as this is an organic product that respects the planet.
Applied correctly you will get that there are no traces of insects on the leaves of marijuana, as it also works perfectly as a natural repellent.
4- Barriers to keep out small animals
Indoors, you can isolate cannabis in the grow room more easily, while outdoors in addition to worrying about pests, you also have to worry about certain animals such as dogs or cats.
You can use a wire mesh to build a kind of barrier or cages to protect your marijuana plants.
It is ideal that when you start your marijuana growing you keep everything clean, from the space where you are going to work to the utensils you are going to use in your plantation.
