🪴 Nutrients

How to fertilize Marijuana

Nutrient, fertilizer, and repotting needs for Marijuana: repot after 2X growth

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.

To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Marijuana after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.

🐶 🐈 👶 Toxicity

Marijuana is not known to cause harm to humans or pets. Regardless, if you, a family member, a cat, or dog has ingested any plant material, please consult a doctor or a veterinarian.


💨 Humidity

Marijuana doesn’t require additional humidity. Plants absorb most water through their root system rather than their leaves, so the best way to provide humidity for your plants is through watering the soil.

Marijuana Humidity Needs →


🪴 Soil

Marijuana does best in well-draining soil. A good soil will contain lots of organic matter such as coco coir as well as perlite or vermiculite to help with drainage. Adding a handful of perlite to regular store-bought potting soil should do the trick!

When and How to Successfully Repot Marijuana →


💩 Fertilizer

Marijuana is a fast growing plant and may deplete the nutrients in its soil over time. Replenish them with a gentle organic fertilizer or compost every 1-2 months depending on your location and season. Fertilize more often during the growing season and in warmer and brighter climates.

🌱 Propagation

Marijuana can be propagated by the stem method. To propagate:

  • Make a cut just above the node. The node is the break in the stem where the leaf emerges.
  • To get the cutting to root, you can either:
    • Place the cutting in water until roots emerge and are ~2” long and then transplant into well-draining soil, or
    • Place the cutting directly into well-draining soil and water when dry.

How to Propagate Marijuana →


🍂 Yellow Leaves

Yellow leaves aren’t always a reason to panic, and can be a normal part of a plant’s life cycle. Unless brand new leaves are turning yellow or all the leaves change color at once, it’s likely just your plant shedding old leaves.

Overwatering and root rot are the most likely cause of problems in Marijuana, since they are sensitive to wet soil. The leaves may also appear to be curling or drooping. Less often, yellow leaves are caused by underwatering, nutrient deficiencies, or pests.

Replace soggy soil with fresh, dry soil and download Greg to make sure your plant never gets overwatered again!


🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.

I 20% Indica 80% Sativa hybrid
High THC levels up to 21%
Consistent heavy yields
Easy going high for everyday use

The Blue Dream Autoflower is a cross between the hardy Ruderalis and the sativa-dominant hybrid, Blue Dream. Its Blue dream parent is 80% Sativa but known for its relaxing vibes. Blue Dream is a popular therapeutic strain that many call the perfect California (for both growing and effects) strain. It is derived from the Blueberry and Super Silver Haze strains.

Blue Dream Auto's other parent, Ruderalis, grows wild throughout Central Asia and Russia. It is prized for its autoflowering abilities. Although not consumed as marijuana, this cannabis is often bred with other species to create strains that are easy to grow year-round.

A similar Blue Dream hybrid, Blue Dream'matic, exists, but it is not the same. While both share the Blue Dream parent, Blue Dream Matic gets its autoflowering capabilities from a Ruderalis grandparent. Our Blue Dream Auto has more Ruderalis genetics because it is a direct cross of Blue Dream and Ruderalis. This leads to a different experience before and after harvest. Blue Dream Auto delivers a happy, calm head buzz, whereas its Dream'matic counterpart adds in a body high and relaxation that may not be ideal for daytime use.
