The ideal pH for marijuana ranges from about 6-7. pH is the rating for how acidic or not something is. This affects your water, soil and plants. If the pH is too high or too low, your plants will have trouble taking in nutrients. There are pH testing and adjustment kits for purchase online or at your local grow store.
Cloned plants produce a fibrous root system. (A) Cannabis plants grown from seed produce a taproot. (B) Taproots firmly anchor the plant into the ground, extending into the soil to find nutrients. Most outdoor plants are grown from seed for this reason. But keep in mind there are costs associated with growing from seed whereas clones are virtually free.

Here's the finger technique, we found this very helpful: stick your index finger into the soil up to your first knuckle or so. If the soil is dry in the first inch to inch-and-half, water. (This applies to medium sized containers and above. Sticking your finger in a small pot may damage the roots).
If left to grow on its own, a cannabis plant will grow vertically, focusing its energy on one main stalk. The result is one long dominant cola with smaller stalks surrounding it. These smaller stalks will produce small buds that won’t be that good and the overall size and yield of the plant will be small.
Topping makes a cannabis plant bushier—by cutting off the main stalk, the plant will redirect its energies to the smaller side branches, which will grow out and produce bigger buds.
Trichomes are the glands that hold the majority of the THC we use. A gland is a part of an organism that contains a substance... like THC or CBD. On weed, they are commonly referred to as crystals.
