4.) Learn about how humidity affects cannabis growth 

by MrGrowingMarijuana

When it comes to humidity, you might be surprised at how much of an effect it can have on growing cannabis plants! When the humidity is too high your plants tend to grow slower and are more susceptible to mold. When it's too low your plants can't make energy as well as they normally could, and tend to run into weird problems like unexplainable nutrient deficiencies. This video is actually really interesting and shows you simple things you can do that will make a difference!

This method works great for marijuana. Remember, marijuana seeds should NOT get light during the germination process. If you don't want to use plastic sandwich bags, you can use the exact same method, but just place the paper towels between 2 plates.

5.) Grow Short and Bushy Plants: How to FIM and Top Marijuana Plants

"How to F.I.M and Top Your Marijuana Plant" by Grow420Guide

How to FIM and Top your marijuana plant video
Warning: Short commercial at beginning

This video describes and show two methods growers use to get additional colas (so you have a wide bushy plant instead of a tall plant with a single cola).

The two techniques are known as topping and FIMing. At GWE, we've covered both methods extensively and they both work extremely well to get your plants to grow multiple colas.

This grower likes to top then FIM his plants. At GWE, we believe both work great though we generally recommend FIMing since it is less stressful to the plant, and creates 4 colas instead of just 2 like topping.

You can FIM multiples times, and it doesn't slow down the plant's growth as much as topping does.
