Use NPK fertilizers during this phase because that’s what your marijuana plant needs enable for it to maintain a vigorous growth and maturity. Unlike the any other plants, marijuana doesn’t need full strength administration of fertilizer. If the fertilizer is too much, the marijuana plant will be affected. Most well-experienced growers dilute the fertilizers that they buy from manufacturers. In this way, they can make sure that the fertilizer isn’t that strong and it couldn’t harm their marijuana plants. Marijuana fertilizers solution is usually used twice a week, but some marijuana growers prefer to use the solution every day. It just depends on the grower on which technique works best for him.
You don’t need to balance the ratio of your plant’s NPK this time. What you need to do is to give higher ratio of phosphorus to your cannabis so that its flowers grow amazingly fine. Phosphorus can help increase the capability of your marijuana plant to produce healthier flowers. Do you want a good yield? Put in good amount of phosphorus but remember not to put too much amount on it. It will burn the plant if that’s what will be done to it. As your ganja plant continues to grow bigger and wider, you need to add more amount of fertilizers and nutrients to maintain it.

There are also some other minerals that can be added to the nutrients that will be paid to your marijuana plants. Only a minimal amount of those secondary nutrients are needed but they should not be ignored because they are needed by your marijuana plant to have a healthy growth and development. Enable for you to make sure that you are giving your plant the right nutrients and care; you might need to buy a book which can guide you through the whole process of feeding your plant.

Make sure to stop administering fertilizer 2 weeks before you harvest your marijuana plant to make sure that there are no traces of chemicals and fertilizers left in the plant. Remove residue of fertilizers and nutrients by using fresh water. Water your plant during those 2 weeks time with fresh water 4 times more than the size of your marijuana’s pot.
