For a lot of growers, there are people who are curious about environmental impacts, and what you can get to make organic farming a reality. Cannabis cultivation is definitely not an exception to a lot of bad farming that happens a lot when you’re working with cannabis. Some people use the wrong fertilizers, and they also may not actively try to conserve water so that there is some sustainability there. This is something that should be monitored however, since it let you protect the planet better, and offer better sustainability for your own needs.
The best sustainable Fertilizers
You want fertilizers that are sustainable. The problem, however, is that a lot of people will get mineral fertilizers, which people tend to abuse, and this leads to a lot of problems for the environment. This is something that we should work to change a little bit, and also understand that if we’re more ecological, we can manage crops better. 100% organic fertilizers is something to strive for, but they’re also something that does impact the growing, and also improves the soil too, which does create worthwhile benefits for everyone involved, improving the quality of life. Fertilizers do have a carbon footprint to them, but a lot of times, utilizing local fertilizer products is the best way to get the real results that’ll help you. Guano is actually one of the best ways to fertilize your plants and is better than putting phosphorus there. Bat guano is sustainable, and it ca really help you get some real results. You should also look at the origins of the fertilizers that we purchase, since we can’t reduce the footprint we make even with local sources. You want to get nutrients that are high quality, and something that’s good for a lot of people. Being sustainable is the way to go, and this is one of the first steps to really make this work.
Finally, you want to also look at the substrate used for this. Cocoa cair, a coco fiber, or a peat mixture is probably the best type of way to grow, but you should also look at the quality of the substrate in general, and you want something that’s filled with microbes that are beneficial for the area. Substrates are also best in pots made of fabric, and something that’s biodegradable. It’s a bit higher than plastic potted mediums, but this is something that’s more sustainable, easy to reuse, and offers better development of plants and storage, so very much worth investing in! Do make sure as well that you avoid watering too much, and it’s something that will definitely benefit from all of these really good changes. Overwatering is so common for a lot of people, and it’s something that definitely should also be worked to be avoided when you’re looking to offer greener alternatives.
