Buds

The bud of a marijuana plant is the prized appendage that appears after a plant enters the flowering stage of its life cycle. The leaves of the marijuana plant contain THC, but the buds of female plants are the most potent product by far.

What are buds

Before you can grow huge marijuana buds, you need to have a bit of background knowledge. For starters, a bud is the growth that pops up during a plant’s flowering phase.

Although marijuana plants’ leaves also have a THC content, the buds have a far more concentrated amount. This is why the buds are the prize possession of any marijuana grower – they are the part of the plant that gets you high. While both male and female buds contain plenty of THC, there are some important differences that distinguish the two.

How Do I Grow Bigger Buds Indoors

Indoor growing is the best way to get those gigantic buds you’re shooting for. Indoor growing has some inherent advantages as  you are able to control a number of variables that will further increase the size of your buds, if proper methodologies are implemented. The first thing to note as a precaution is to not allow the males and females to intermingle.

The best way to identify a male is by looking at the preflowers, the calyx, during the early stages of growth. If the calyx is raised on a small stalk or stem then it is generally a male. lf the calyx is not raised then it is generally a female. Watch these areas closely as they develop to learn the difference. When gearing up to grow large cannabis buds, be advised that male marijuana plants halt the growing process of the female plant’s bud. This is detrimental to growing huge buds of cannabis, so you’ll want to keep the males and females separate.

Important Components of a Successful Indoor Grow

The following components (in this particular order) should be given due consideration when trying to grow gigantic marijuana buds in an indoor grow as they will be a major indicator of just how large your buds will grow to be:

  • marijuana fertilizer
  • PH level
  • EC level
  • carbon dioxide level
  • lighting
  • Temperature and humidity

After these variables are in optimal condition for the plant, you can move on to tricks about pruning, scrogging, low stress training (LST), and harvesting. Ensure that you regularly monitor all these components, because shifts in the status of these can slow or disrupt the growing process.
