The easiest and most effective method gardeners use to eliminate odors is using a negative ion generator. These units are sometimes called ion fountains or air ionizers. Negative ion generators charge air molecules with extra electrons, giving them a negative charge. When negatively charged air ions comes in contact with a positively charged dust particle, the air molecule gives up its electron. The positively charged particle is neutralized and no longer floats since it is not as influenced by electrical charges. The particle drops from the air (precipitates) and falls onto the wall or floor. It no longer creates an odor out of your marijuana seeds that now are plants.

Plants are sometimes grown using a nutrient solution containing no N for the last 10 days. Many of the larger leaves yellow and wither as N migrates from old to new growth. The fertilizer should be complete, that is, it should contain all of the secondary and trace elements. Some fertilizers do not contain Mg. This is supplemented using Epsom salts, available at drug stores. Sometimes growers prefer to use more than one fertilizer. They find that changing the formulas and ingredients helps to prevent stresses and deficiencies. However, the chemicals in each fertilizer are blended to remain soluble (semillas de marihuana). Different fertilizer formulas may react with each other. As a result some of the chemicals may precipitate and become unavailable to the plants. To prevent this growers use only one fertilizer at each watering.

This helps prevent over fertilization. Organic MixesThese mixes contain organic ingredients which help to support plant growth and act as a buffer. 4 parts topsoil, 1 part peat moss, 1 part vermiculite, 1 part perlite. Moist. Contains medium high amounts of nutrients. Best for hand watering systems.1 part worm castings, 2 parts vermiculite, 1 part perlite. Light weight, high in nutrients.1 part worm castings, 1 part compost, 1 part topsoil, 2 parts vermiculite, 2 parts perlite, 3 parts styrofoam. Holds high amounts of water and air.1 part worm castings, 1 part peat moss, 1 part lava, 1 part vermiculite, 1 part perlite, 1 part styrofoam. Good buffering capabilities.Inorganic Mixes These mixes contain only sterile, inert ingredients and have no nutrient value. 1 part vermiculite, 1 part perlite.3 parts vermiculite, 3 parts perlite, 2 parts styrofoam.1 part vermiculite, 1 part perlite, 2 parts styrofoam, 1 part sand, I part lava, 1 part peat moss (semillas de marihuana).Lava, pea sized gravel or small ceramic beads alone or mixed with a little vermiculite.
