1- Put one plant per pot
Many growers advice against growing several plants per pot, the ideal would be to use a pot for each cannabis plant, as this prevents the roots from competing with each other and allows you to take care of each flower individually.
Also, keep in mind that if the soil in a pot becomes contaminated, over-watered or over-fertilized, among other inconveniences, only the plant in that container will be affected and not the rest of the growing that is in separate pots.
2- Choose the most suitable color
Depending on when you are going to grow your Mary Jane in pots, the color of the pot can be decisive.

During the hotter months and seasons, it is advisable to use white pots outdoors, as they reflect the light and prevent the root system from overheating.
3- Locate them in a good place (outdoors)
If you decide to grow your pot in the garden of your house or on the rooftop, it is ideal that you place your pots in the ideal place. Make sure that it allows access to sunlight, and that are no trees or walls obstructing the lighting. Also, place your pots in an area where you have access to water.
4- Use pots with holes in the bottom
The pots you are going to use to plant your precious pot should have holes in the bottom to ensure effective drainage in case of excessive watering, while allowing oxygen to flow through the substrate, thus reducing the chances of suffering from problems such as root rot.
