How to Grow Weed on a Windowsill: The Basics
Now that you know the pros and cons, let’s get into the basics of how to grow weed on your windowsill.
Light is crucial for growing cannabis. Your plants need between 10-12 hours of direct sunlight each day. If you have a south-facing window, that’s ideal because it will provide the most direct sunlight. East-facing windows are the next best option. West-facing windows can work, but they expose your plants to intense afternoon heat, so make sure to keep them hydrated. If you don’t have access to enough sunlight, you can supplement with artificial LED lights.
Choosing the Right Pot
When choosing a pot for your windowsill grow, make sure it will fit in the space you have. You’ll also want to choose a pot that has water reservoirs so that your plant stays hydrated.
Good soil is key for growing healthy plants. Look for soil that is rich in nutrients and airy. Make sure it has all the macronutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium), as well as micronutrients.
Choosing the Right Strain
Autoflowering strains are perfect for growing on a windowsill because they’re easy to grow and don’t require a change in light cycle to start flowering. Purple Kush Auto, Royal Dwarf Auto, and Northern Lights Auto are all great options for windowsill growing.
And that’s it! With these tips in mind, you’ll be growing some fire herb on your windowsill in no time. Happy growing!
