Usually, many growers focus only on looking for techniques to increase yields or maximize the THC of their buds, and that’s not wrong the roots of your plants deserve special attention because no matter how good the chosen cannabis genetics is, without a healthy root base your results will most likely be poor.
What if my Mary’s roots are brown? Well, cannabis roots are milky white and don’t smell like anything in particular, so if the opposite is true, then something is most likely wrong with your growth.
If the roots of your plants are brown, your girls are likely suffering from a problem known as root rot, as this is one of the most common symptoms.
Root rot is a condition that eventually can end up killing plants, so you must avoid it at all costs.
This disease can be caused by various species of fungi, such as Fusarium, Phytophthora, Pythium, or Rhizoctonia, and even poor drainage can favor the appearance of this problem.
We recommend you to prevent this situation, for this, it is advisable that before growing, verify that the growing medium you will use is free of fungi and is of good quality. Also, make sure that it has good drainage.
Ensure that factors such as watering, humidity, nutrition, among others, are at the correct levels so that the roots of your girls will grow well.
