  1. Stunted growth can be a frustrating issue when it comes to cannabis plants! But don’t be too discouraged – there are several things you can do to try and get your plants back on track.

    Firstly, it’s important to understand the cause of your plants’ stunted growth. Common causes can include – inadequate environmental conditions, nutrient deficiencies, incorrect pH, root issues or pests and disease. You should first identify any underlying issues such as incorrect pH or nutrient problems. You should also look for signs of pests or disease such as yellowed leaves, brown spots on the stems or curling leaves.

    Once you have identified the primary cause of the stunted growth, you can then work on the solution.

    Environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity can have a big impact on your plants’ growth. The best practice is to keep the temperature between 21-27 degrees celsius during the day and 15-18 degrees celsius at night. Humidity should be kept between 40-60%. You should also make sure that your plants are getting adequate light – if you’re not providing enough light then you risk slowing down their growth.

    Nutrients are another major factor which can affect your plants’ growth. If your soil is lacking in essential nutrients then your plants aren’t going to be able to perform optimally. You will need to feed your plants the right balance of nutrients – using an organic nutrient-rich soil mix is a good idea. Soil should also be tested regularly to make sure the pH is between 6-7.

    Root issues can also lead to stunted growth. The most common cause is overwatering which leads to root rot and nutrient lock out. You should water your plants only when the soil is dry – no more than once a week. If you notice browning or yellowing of the leaves then you have likely overwatered and will need to reduce the amount of water your giving them.

    Pests and disease can also slow down your plants’ growth. You should regularly inspect your plants for signs of pests or disease and where necessary use an organic pest control solution.

    Finally, you can help your plants recover from stunted growth by introducing growth stimulants such as compost teas or liquid seaweed. You should also ensure your plants are getting enough oxygen – give them a gentle shake every now and then to ensure the roots get enough air.

    If you follow these tips, you should be able to restore your plants’ growth and see some positive results in no-time. With the right care and attention, your plants should reach their full potential!
