Outdoor marijuana growing – Companion plants
Marijuana companion plants
Marijuana is a very hardy plant when grown outdoors with good nutrient-rich soil. Like most other plants, marijuana produces natural toxins that serve as repellents to pests. Take advantage of this natural quality in other plants by using them as one natural way to help control your pest problem. Certain plants, especially mints, cabbages, and strong-smelling plants like onions, help repel a large range of assorted beetles and aphids. Onions can also help keep curious rabbits and deer away from your cannabis planting area. Geraniums or marigolds should also be considered for their ability to ward away leaf-eating insects as well as worms, beetles and other pests that bore into the stems or chew through the leaves of your marijuana plants.
Any choice you make should be planted very close to your marijuana crop, even interspersed with your plants as their natural insecticides only cover a very small area. At the same time, keep in mind that while companion plants should be planted close to your crops, you don’t want them competing for water or nutrients.
When choosing a particular companion plant for its symbiotic qualities, make sure that you follow the proper growing instructions. Pay attention to what might normally grow in this area and choose those plants that have the best chance of surviving, diverting the feeding interests of the insects, and blending in better with the natural environment. Any information you need about companion plants, should be widely available either at a nursery or wherever you purchase cannabis seeds or transplants.
