There are a lot of different ways to grow plants these days, and the choice is mostly up to the grower. A lot of people use hydroponics, which is when plants grow in water. Others use LST and air pruning etc. which is when plants grow in air. These methods can be very different depending on where you get your media. Knowing where your media comes from can help you get better results as a grower.

The quality of your plant can depend on how much work and care you put into it. After you plant seeds and water them, there aren't many more complicated steps you need to follow. We've talked about a lot of different things you can do to grow your plants, and when they work together, they help you get the most out of them. So as a quick summary, here are three things you can do to grow bigger buds.

Low-Stress Training

As your plants get taller and into the flowering stage, they have a harder time keeping their balance while being completely illuminated by grow lights. Cannabis plants, on the other hand, have a lot of bud sites, which makes it hard for other plant canopies (the top of the plant) to get light. This means that you won't be able to get bigger yields.

In time, the canopy of your plants grows over them and blocks them from getting as much light as the rest of your plant does. Because there aren't as many buds as there could be, there is less room for more yields to grow. In addition, your plant is getting less and able to stand on its own, which makes its stems weaker. When you use low-stress training to grow your plants, you use all of their bodies by encouraging horizontal growth. At this point, your plant is at its most flexible. Pulling down the branches will let additional light in. Use trellis nets to keep your plants upright or hold them down so that they grow horizontally, like in a flower bed.

LST is usually done during the vegetative phase, when the stem and shoots are still soft and can be bent. The cannabis plant starts to grow in a circle instead of straight up. When the plant is ready to flower, healthy colas will rise up from the sideways-growing plant.

Using LST, you bend and tie important branches and stems in a way that is very soft and careful. When you use this method, you don't have to worry about over-stressing the plant, which allows it to quickly adapt to the training measures and adapt more quickly. For people who don't want to try or don't know how to use high-stress training techniques, low-stress training is a low-risk practice that plants usually like.

It's a good idea to start low-stress training as soon as the plant is in the vegetative state and has a lot of strong nodes. As soon as the main stem and shoots reach a length where they can be bent and fixed, LST can be done easily and will be the best way to grow. Later in the vegetative or flowering cycle, waiting until the stems and shoots are more rigid can be a problem, because they may not be able to be bent.

LST can be used on both indoor and outdoor plants, which saves space and increases the number of buds. For gardeners who work outside, it can be good to keep a crop out of the way.

Air Pruning

Air pruning happens when roots are exposed to the air when there isn't a lot of humidity. The roots are effectively "burned." This causes the plant to keep making new, healthy branches of roots. As long as the roots aren't exposed to the outside air, they keep growing around the container in a tight shape.

In traditional solid clay pots, roots will grow straight down, coil at the bottom, and take in fewer nutrients. This is because the roots will not get as many nutrients. This means that the soil above the roots isn't being used while the plant chokes itself. To avoid this, your plant's roots must spread out to cover all of the soil it is in. In order to make this network even bigger, the roots must be cut from the air.

When you grow plants in pots that let the air get inside, like the fabric pots we make at Spring Pots, the roots are happier. Why? They are naturally pruned (dried up) when they get to the bottom and the sides of the pot. This makes the plant grow new, fresh roots that then reach down into the soil.

Think about what happens when you cut a small piece off of a plant, like a leaf. At least two more shoots will grow from where you cut the stem. It also happens when the roots of a plant come into contact with the air. This means that the roots are dried up, or pruned, and new roots grow from the old one. long single roots that grow inside the pot are replaced by many small plant roots that spread out over time in the soil.

A plant's roots die when they come into contact with the air. They have to grow more root branches and make a fibrous mass. Branches that have a lot of leaves grow new roots that reach other parts of your soil. The more roots your plant grows, the more water and nutrients it can take in, which leads to bigger buds.

Air pruning can be done whether you are growing indoors or outside. It is a good way to grow more plants and make more money. You can make a big difference in how your cannabis plant grows just by using a container that can let air in. Switch out your clay or plastic pots with a fabric smart pot and see how it works for you. You can see the difference for yourself.

 Proper Ventilation

When you use the previous techniques to help your plants grow, the most important thing is to make sure your grow space is stable. This is how you can get rid of hot and stale air from your grow tent by putting an inline fan system in place. You can also use an intake fan to get more fresh air into your grow tent. Installing a carbon filter will also help keep smells from escaping.

Setting up your ventilation system: Place the active exhaust fan on top of your grow space when you do it. Heat naturally rises, so putting your inline fan where the warm air is concentrated will be the best way to get rid of it. Make sure there is an opening at the bottom of your grow space, where cooler air comes from.

Indoor gardening needs a lot of ventilation to keep plants healthy. Oxygen is, in fact, one of the most important things plants need to grow. It doesn't matter what kind of plant you're growing; stagnant air will hurt its health. Especially for people who are new to indoor gardening, stagnant air may not seem like a big deal at first. However, over time, the plant will die because it needs a steady flow of carbon dioxide. A steady flow of air can do a lot for your indoor garden, like keep it healthy. Read on to learn more about how important it is to have good ventilation when you grow plants inside.

1. Prevents Mold and Bacteria from building up in the house

It's one of the main problems with hydroponic growing indoors because of the damp conditions. Mold can grow because of this. Moisture is a good place for mold and bacteria to grow, but it can be kept away with good ventilation and a steady flow of air.

2. Reducing the Heat Impact

It's possible for an indoor garden to get hot because the grow lights are always putting out heat. This is bad for your plants, but it can also make the air in your home smell bad. A well-ventilated room will remove hot air and replace it with cool air to keep the temperature in the room even.

3. Emissions of odors are eliminated

An odor that comes from plants is known to come out when you grow plants indoors. To keep the smell from spreading, you can easily set up a carbon air filter that will clean the air in your home or office. This should remove the smell. Make sure to change the filter out often.


Q. Is air pruning really good?

Air pruning is also identical virtuous at growing trees. It extends the "life" of the plant material, stops root circling, and makes plant installations more successful because the plants grow quickly after being moved.

Q. Is low-stress training important?

The more colas there are, the more flower buds you can pick from the plants you grow. When you're growing plants in an indoor garden, LST can help you keep them from growing too tall. This can be very important if you're growing plants that could grow more than 7 feet tall.
