Backyard Hemp Flower Garden – Evaluate Your Grow Space
When you first survey your grow space, the first question to consider is the “social distance” space. Evaluate the size of your available area. Second you need to decide which CBD hemp flower strain you are going to grow in your backyard hemp flower garden. But if you are not ready to decide that now, on the average you will need one to three square feet per plant.
It is important not to crowd your plants so when putting seeds in the ground, leave at least one to three feet between the seeds because the branches grow outward as well as upward. If the leaves on the branches rub together, they become humid and are unable to transpire. This can spread mold and an environment for spider mites and other problems. Temperature controls as well as poor ventilation or air flow can be problematic when planting too close.
The other reason you need space between the plants is so you can move between the plants and care for them. You may be planting your seeds in the ground or you may decide to plant in large pots. And the pot must be large, a minimum of a two or five gallon pot. because you do not want it to be root bound.
If you want to start the seedlings in a biodegradable mini pot close together, then you can merely put the mini pot in the ground or in your two -five gallon contain to grow in a “social distancing” manner.
