Here is the marijuana grow terms glossary that covers all the essential terms for cannabis growth.
It is a slang used to refer to cannabis, and it can also refer to a time of the day. The weed enthusiasts generally use this term to refer to when they meet up to smoke or vape. It always refers to April 20th, which is celebrated as informal weed day. This popular term was first coined in 1971 by the kids of San Rafael high school.
The next term in our marijuana grow terms glossary is 12/12, a shorthand for twelve hours of light and twelve hours of darkness. This means that the grow lights turn on for 12 hours and then are turned off for the next 12 hours. This light schedule dictates the plants to grow leaves and stems.
It is a shorthand used for eight hours of light and six hours of darkness. It is one of the most common light schedules used by growers during the vegetative state. This allows the growth of the stems and leaves. The lights remain on for a straight eighteen hours in this schedule, and they stay off for six hours.
This is another shorthand term that is used for 24 hours of light and no darkness. This is an extreme measure taken to maximize plant growth extensively.
It is a type of hydroponic cannabis cultivation in which the plant’s roots stay suspended in the air. The roots are sometimes misted with a nutrient solution to aid growth.
It refers to a bud that lacks density and has very little plant matter. These are squishy, spread over an extended area, and are also called larfy.
These are entirely white. This refers to buds that are lightly bleached buds that have spots near the top of the plant. If the white spots are not situated at the top of the plant, they might be true albinos or plants with albino characteristics.
Aquaponics is the next term that we will learn in our marijuana grow terms glossary. It is a method that combines aquaculture and hydroponics. The fish and its surrounding environment create the required nutrients for the cannabis plant to grow. It is still not a viable growth method, but it might become a popular method shortly.
These strains start maturing and offering buds on their own without the requirement of change in light schedule. These have a shunt structure, and they are immune to light leaks. Even though these strains are cultivable at home, the biggest downside is that they offer reduced strain options and the plants remain small at harvest if they have a slow start.
It is a term used for breeding a cannabis plant with its parent plant to strengthen certain traits.
These are also referred to as supplements by many. But the base nutrients, unlike the supplements, contain all the different minerals that the plant requires to grow and offer a better harvest.
Conclusively these are some of the most important terms that are used for growing marijuana.
