BackYard Cannabis Farming 2019 - Episode 3: Preparing Your Grow Space, Treating Burnt Plants

last year

In today's episode you get to witness the complete transformation of an overgrown backyard jungle into a beautiful grow area. With an only partially working lawnmower, this proved to be much more difficult than anticipated. I also begin re-construction of my in ground/raise bed area, and decided to make it larger for more grow space as well.

If there was only one piece of advise I could give for early in the season, it would be to ALWAYS CHECK THE WEATHER FORECAST!! When we went to San Francisco/Oakland for the weekend, of course the weather in Portland spiked to over 90 degrees when I only instructed my roommate to water once. As a result, my plants burned in the sun. If I would have checked the weather, the plants would have received more water than usual, and in all likelihood would have experienced healthy growth instead of singed leaves.

Burnt Cannabis Plants:



I treated the plants by manicuring damaged sections of leaves with scissors, and completely removing some leaves that were too far gone (as well as topping one plant). There has not been much sun since our trip, so lets just say the plants have not been through an ideal situation lately. Most of them however have since rebounded.

Here is the series so far:

Always like this! When you ask to care for someone who is not relevant to the case, an incident happens. Good luck. Try not to trust your pets to other people and everything will be fine.


Sometimes there is no choice. I have to go out of town again for a week or two, but this time the weather should be fairly consistent.

Medicinal plants have a great chance to recover. Good luck.


Most of them already did, actually all of them. Some just recovered better than others.

Great job and thanks for sharing us good content on how to growing cannabis very effective way and also let us know the weather that is OK for growing cannabis. Sure I gain from your content


I am glad you are getting some things out of it. Much more to come.

Are you checking the PH of your mix? is anyone wetting the plants, I mean the leaves?
Those beds look awesome, It is going to be great to see those plants grow ;-)


It just rained on them like crazy after I just did my transplant today into all the big pots and raised bed - hasn't happened before that point though.


Could that be the cause of the leaf burns, sun and water could work as a prism? in indoors it does happen. In any case in veg to recover plants is quite easy, am sure they will be fine in no time ;-)

Your tree may be a little problem, so that the tree's refreshment is less. What could be the problem?


Just lack of water in extreme heat combined with shock from lime sulfur treatment - may have used a little too much.

Hopefully, now they look good..


They are in fact doing much better now.

I am sure those plants will recover on no time...its weed after all, all it wants is to grow.

Hope youll get some juicy harvest soon!
