10 Common Mistakes Cannabis Growers Make (and How to Avoid Them)

Want to avoid common mistakes in your cannabis grow?

Hey there, fellow plant medicine enthusiasts!

Today, I want to talk about the top ten mistakes that cannabis growers tend to make, and how you can avoid them.

Trust me, I've seen it all - from beginners just starting out to experienced growers who should know better. But don't worry, these mistakes are all easily avoidable with a little bit of knowledge and preparation.

  1. Not researching your strain: Not all cannabis strains are created equal, and it's important to do your research before you start growing. Different strains have different growing conditions, and some may be more susceptible to pests or diseases. Make sure you know what you're getting into before you start.

  2. Not starting with good genetics: Even if you know everything there is to know about growing cannabis (which is impossible, quite frankly), it's not going to matter if you don't start with good genetics. Make sure you're getting your seeds or clones from a reputable source.

  3. Not having the right equipment: If you're growing cannabis indoors you'll need to invest in some equipment. Make sure you have all the necessary gear, such as grow lights, fans, and grow media. But there's so much to choose from, so much to consider. Create an equipment checklist or use the one provided in the 6-Week Grow Our Own Challenge.

  4. Not providing enough light: Light is crucial for healthy growth, and not providing enough can lead to weak, spindly plants. Make sure your plants are getting enough light by using high-quality grow lights and placing them close to the plants.

  5. Not providing enough nutrients: Just like with light, plants need a balance of nutrients to thrive. Make sure you're giving your plants the right amount of nutrients, and that you're using a good quality fertilizer.

  6. Not controlling the temperature and humidity: Cannabis plants need a specific range of temperature and humidity to grow properly. Make sure you're monitoring these levels and adjusting them as necessary.

  7. Not protecting your plants from pests and diseases: Pests and diseases can quickly wipe out a crop, so make sure you're taking steps to protect your plants. This can include using pesticides, monitoring for signs of pests or diseases, and keeping your grow room clean.

  8. Not training your plants: Training your plants can help them grow more evenly and increase yields. Techniques such as topping, bending, and supercropping can help you make the most of your space and get bigger yields. Of course, here at Trella, we use a low-stress training technique to grow each plant as big as possible.

  9. Not harvesting at the right time: Timing is everything when it comes to harvesting. Make sure you're waiting until the trichomes have turned milky and the leaves are starting to yellow before you harvest.

  10. Not properly curing your buds: Once you've harvested your buds, it's important to cure them properly. This can help improve the taste and overall quality of your buds. Make sure you're drying them slowly and in a dark, cool place.
