Tuesday’s tips for beginner growers are brought to you by HIGH TIMES Cultivation Editor Nico Escondido. 

1. Most nutrient problems are actually pH problems. For soilless mixtures, use a pH between 6.0 – 6.5. For hydroponic mediums, such as Rockwool or clay pellets, keep it between 5.8 – 6.2.

2. Warmer roots respire faster, which releases more energy and grows larger root mass and plant size. Keep root temps between 66-70°F.

3. An un-pruned plant causes the plant to continue building unnecessary branch and leaf systems—and then expend even more energy to supply these structures with food. Remove one or two lower branches and a couple of larger, older fan leaves each day.
