Two of the most confusing aspects of growing marijuana is knowing what weed plants need and how much of it to give them. In fact, most growers fail at this many times before they eventually grow healthy plants. Truth is, it takes a lot of time and effort to yield optimal results.

Generally speaking, cannabis plants grow fast without much help. However, they still benefit from well-balanced nourishment. The proper nutrients can strengthen the plant, increases their resistance to diseases, and accelerate their growth. They also help weed plants produce high yields of those potent buds we enjoy.
