Pictures of marijuana symptoms caused by over-watering, too much heat, and small containers

by Nebula Haze

Here's a series of pictures of a couple marijuana clones I had a few years ago.

I was experimenting with growing an entire plant from clone to harvest in a solo cup, which is why you can see flowering plants in such small containers. Each of these were flowered as soon as the clones took root. This technique is often called "Flowering from seed" or "12-12 from seed" and just means that you force the plant to start flowering at a very young age. I wanted to see how small I could get flowering plants.

7 Common New Grower Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

The current (undeserved, in my opinion) legal status of marijuana makes it so that many new growers end up learning some hard lessons on their own.

I Need Help With Nutrients!

Unlike humans with our complicated social systems, dietary needs, etc., the cannabis plant has a very short list of things it needs to be happy and grow buds: Light, water, air and nutrients.

Water isn’t much trouble since any clean water from pretty much any source will do as long as the pH is corrected.

Air is free and you can move it around with a cheap oscillating fan…easy!

Does that sound crazy? Good! Because it IS crazy!

Step-by-Step Picture Guide to Cloning Marijuana

by Nebula Haze

Cloning cannabis is the process of making a smaller copy a specific cannabis plant. This copy has the exact same genes as the first plant. Growers can take many clones of a single plant, and this is an effective way to get many tiny plants that will grow the same way  as the mother plant and produce buds with similar characteristics. 

Cloning is one of the easiest and fastest forms of "making new plants" available to cannabis growers.
