Cannabis Plant Biology

A basic understanding of cannabis plant biology can go a long way when it comes to home cannabis cultivation, and an in-depth knowledge of the subject may assist you in becoming a better grower and breeder.

This section of our Grow Guide includes subjects like the life cycle of plants and cellular biology. Plant anatomy breaks plants down into many separate parts, from taproot to trichome, and can be of great assistance to help growers recognise what to look for in both healthy and suboptimal crops. Plant sex covers the traits of male, female, and intersex plants, a vital topic for breeders looking to create new strains and home-growers looking to avoid males infiltrating the grow room.
