How should you grow? The Basics of Growing Plants: Tips for Beginners

If you're new to growing plants, it can be difficult to know where to start. But don't worry, this guide will help you understand the basics and get you on your way to successful growing.

One of the first steps is to decide which plants you want to grow and ensure they are suitable for your climate and location. In addition, it is important to understand the soil you will be planting in, as different plants have different soil requirements. Just think of soil, coconut or (R)DWC, these are all different soils/substrates in which your plant can grow. Every soil/substrate has its own advantages and disadvantages, but also their own type of nutrition.

It is another important consideration light level . Some plants need a lot of sunlight, while other plants thrive better in the shade. It is therefore important to understand the light requirements of each plant before planting them. Just think of LED and HPS, LED has been preferred by many in recent years because of its higher performance, a much lower hazard level and the more economical alternative. In many cases, HPS emits too much heat, which can be dangerous for people and nature, not to mention when these lamps burst open and hazardous substances are released. Therefore, choose your light source carefully.

To water is one of the most important parts of growing plants. Overwatering can cause root rot, while too little water leads to dehydration and wilting of the plant. It is important to understand each plant's water needs and maintain a consistent watering routine. Unfortunately, you can never make a clear estimate from the outside how much water you need. Try to learn what the plant is doing every time you water it. Have you given 250ml of water and is the soil still moist the next day? Then your plant has not drunk 250ml of water, if the soil is dry, you can assume that it has absorbed the water. You learn and understand the plant through play.

Finally it is important to regularly check the plants for pests and diseases. Prevention is the key here and using natural methods to combat these problems is often the best approach. Pests can cause you to lose your harvest, so make sure you understand how you get pests and how to solve them.

By understanding and following these basic principles, you will be on your way to successful plant cultivation. It may take some time to develop a green thumb, but with patience, dedication, and these tips, you'll be growing beautiful, healthy plants in no time. You cannot learn how to grow in one day, become a student of the plant and you will be Professor of Growing in no time.
