What Does Cannabis Cultivation Mean?

Cannabis cultivation is a term that refers to growing cannabis, either in a commercial facility or in a home garden. Cannabis cultivation can occur outdoors, but it is much more likely to be indoors in a hydroponic (soilless) set-up.


Maximum Yield Explains Cannabis Cultivation

Cannabis cultivation is nothing more nor less than the growing of marijuana. If you live in a state where medical marijuana has been legalized and you have a cannabis card, you are allowed to grow a certain number of plants at home for personal use. The term also applies to commercial growing operations.

In most instances, cannabis cultivation is best done indoors. For the home grower, that can be done relatively easily, although it will mean that you need to turn one of the rooms in your home into a grow room. Note that this doesn’t have to be a “room”. It can be any space large enough for your needs, ranging from the corner of a room to a closet to an entire room.

Cannabis cultivation is not something you should rush into. Start small. Growing only a couple of plants at first can help you get your feet wet without spending a fortune on hydroponic equipment, lighting, environmental control equipment and more. It is also important to be prepared for the learning curve and the setbacks that you’ll experience. Plant diseases are common, as are pests and other threats that can kill your plants quickly.

When setting up a cannabis grow room, make sure that you have the area blacked out so that light does not penetrate during “down” periods, or you risk the production of male flowers, rather than female flowers. You should also make sure the grow room is kept scrupulously clean, and that you have the right grow lights for each stage of maturation in your plants.
