What elements does my cannabis plant need?

We all know that a normal garden plant requires proper light, dirt, and water to thrive. But when it comes to growing cannabis, the process isn’t so simple. There are various aspects that need to be considered, like proper watering schedule, light schedule, and well-balanced PH in soil.

Besides, your plants require some main groups of elements too.

Yes, you guessed that right. The elements we have in the periodic table.

So, here is a list of all macronutrients (collectively termed) that your plant needs:

1- Nitrogen: Nitrogen proves of great help during the developmental stage, i.e., during the vegetative stage. Nitrogen is a part of ATP that helps the plant cells to control energy usage.

2- Phosphorus: Phosphorus helps in the production of large and healthy buds. Without proper phosphorus, your plant can have undeveloped roots and may not even flower.

3- Potassium: Potassium looks after various jobs in the plants that help with regulating systems that keep the plant growing and healthy. Potassium also promotes ATP production.

4- Calcium: Calcium plays a vital role in keeping the cell wall structure in the plant together. Without calcium, there won’t be proper new growth, and the plant may not operate as it should.

5- Magnesium: Magnesium plays the role of the central molecule in chlorophyll. Without magnesium, the plant won’t be able to produce glucose for the photosynthesis process.
