How to Get Bigger and More Compact Buds

If you are looking for ways to fatten up the buds of your growing marijuana crop, you have come to the right place. In this article, we will introduce you to some tips and techniques to get bigger and harder buds, whether you are growing indoors or outdoors. In addition, we’ll tell you about some products that can help you achieve your desired goal. Let’s get started!

How to Fatten Buds Indoors

If you’re growing indoors, it’s important to keep certain factors in mind to maximise your bud production.

Here are some tips to help you achieve bigger, harder buds in the controlled environment of your home:

Adequate lighting

It is important that your plants receive the right amount of light. To get big buds, you should make sure that your plants receive at least 18 hours of light per day during the growth phase and at least 12 hours of light during the flowering phase. If you are growing autoflowering seeds, you should stick to a light cycle of 18-20 hours of light from start to finish.

If you are growing with a conventional HPS lighting kit, one of the ways to fatten the buds and increase production is to use a specific lamp for growing and another for flowering, which will give you better yields than with mixed lamps. If you already have a bulb for each phase, you can buy a higher quality reflector, such as the Adjust a Wings avenger.

Currently one of the best selling lighting systems are the Lumatek ZEUS 600w pro 2.9 LEDs, with this type of lighting you can increase the size of your buds.

Temperature and humidity

The ideal temperature for growing cannabis indoors is between 20-26 degrees Celsius. In addition, you should make sure that the humidity is 50-70% during the growing phase and 40-50% during the flowering phase.

Make sure to always keep your plants within the ideal parameters and they will reward you with buds that are as big as fists. To keep an eye on these parameters, use a digital thermo-hygrometer.

Pruning and training techniques

Pruning and training can help maximise bud production. Pruning can help concentrate the plant’s energy on the main buds, while training can help distribute the plant’s energy evenly.

The right nutrients

To fatten buds, it is important to provide your plants with the necessary nutrients. Nutrients such as phosphorus and potassium are important for bud development. Make sure you use a good fertiliser that contains these nutrients.

How to Fatten Buds Outdoors

If you are growing outdoors, there are also certain factors you need to take into account in order to get big, hard buds. Here are a few tips:

Choosing the right strain

To get big, hard buds outdoors, it is important to choose a variety that is hardy and adapted to the climate in your area.

Suitable location

You should choose a location that receives sufficient sunlight and is sheltered from the wind. In addition, make sure that the soil has the necessary nutrients.

Pruning and training techniques

Pruning and training can also help maximise bud production outdoors. Pruning can help concentrate the plant’s energy on the main buds, while training can help distribute the plant’s energy evenly.

Pest and disease control

Be on the lookout for pests and diseases that can affect your plants. A good prevention and treatment strategy is key to healthy and strong buds.

Pruning Techniques for Bigger and Harder Buds

Pruning is an important technique for getting bigger and harder buds. Here are some pruning techniques you can use:

BUD CLEAN Straight Tip Scissors

Top pruning

Top pruning consists of cutting off the tip of the plant to stimulate lateral growth and concentrate energy on the main buds. Do not use the top pruning technique during the flowering phase, the energy of your plants during this phase should be concentrated only on fattening the buds.

Low branch pruning

Pruning low branches can help concentrate the plant’s energy on the main buds and improve air circulation.

Super cropping

Super cropping involves gently bending the branches of the plant to stimulate growth and increase bud production.

Tips and Tricks to Get Bigger and Harder Buds

In addition to growing and pruning techniques, there are some tips and tricks that can help you get bigger and harder buds. Here are a few of them:

Use a good substrate

A good substrate can provide your plants with the nutrients they need to grow healthy and strong and produce big, hard buds.

Add CO2

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is essential for photosynthesis and can help increase bud production.

Control air humidity

Excessive humidity can encourage fungal and mould growth, while low humidity can negatively affect plant growth. Control air humidity to maximise bud production.

Products to Get Bigger and Harder Buds

There are a few products that can help you get bigger and harder buds. Here are some of them:

Flowering fertilisers

Fertilisers specifically for the flowering phase can provide your plants with the nutrients they need to produce big, hard buds.

Phosphorus and potassium supplements

Phosphorus and potassium are essential nutrients for bud development. You can use specific supplements to increase the concentration of these nutrients in your plants.

Bloom stimulators

Bloom stimulators can increase bud production and improve bud quality.

We hope you have found this guide helpful in achieving bigger and harder buds. Remember, it’s all about care and attention to your plants – good luck with your growing!
