What Does Cannabis Cultivation Mean?
Cannabis cultivation is a term that describes growing marijuana, either in a commercial establishment or in a home garden. Cannabis cultivation can occur outdoors, but it is much more likely to be indoors in a hydroponic (soilless) set-up.
Cannabis cultivation is nothing more nor less than the growing of marijuana. If you live in a state where medical marijuana has been legalized and you have a cannabis card, you are allowed to grow a particular number of plants at home for personal use. The term also pertains to commercial growing operations.
In the majority of circumstances, cannabis cultivation is best done indoors. For the home cultivator, that can be done fairly easily, although it will mean that you need to convert one of the rooms in your home into a grow space. Keep in mind that this does not have to be a "room". It can be any space big enough for your needs, ranging from the corner of a room to a closet to a whole room.
Cannabis cultivation is not something you should rush into. Start small. Growing only a couple of plants at first can help you get your feet wet without spending a lot of money on hydroponic equipment, lighting, environmental control equipment and more. It is also important to be prepared for the learning curve and the obstacles that you'll experience. Plant diseases are common, as are pests and other threats that can ruin your plants quickly.
When setting up a cannabis grow space, be sure that you have the space blacked out so that light does not enter during "down" periods, or you risk the production of male flowers, rather than female flowers. You should also be sure the grow room is kept scrupulously clean, and that you have the best grow lights for every stage of maturation in your plants.
