Spring is here in Vancouver, and for many, that means outdoor cannabis cultivation season is on the horizon! Did you know British Columbia residents aged 19 and older can grow up to four cannabis plants per household? Eggs Canna, your local cannabis boutique in Vancouver, is here to help you get growing.

Local Regulations Around Growing Cannabis

Eggs Canna prioritizes responsible cannabis use, and we want to see you cultivate your plants successfully. Based on local resources, here are some points to keep in mind with regard to BC regulations for growing cannabis at home:

  • You must be 19 years or older to grow cannabis in Vancouver.
  • Plants cannot be grown in a location visible from a public place (parks, streets, sidewalks, etc.).
  • Growing cannabis is banned in homes used as licensed childcare facilities.
  • Landlords and strata corporations can further restrict or prohibit growing cannabis on their properties.

Growing Cannabis At Home

Now that you’ve familiarized yourself with the regulations, it’s time to plan growing cannabis. As a cannabis shop, we’ll tell you that choosing healthy clones is the foundation for a thriving cannabis garden.

Here are some key things to look for:

  • Healthy clones should have bright green leaves that stand upright, not drooping.
  • Strong root systems are essential for nutrient uptake. Look for clones with white, well-developed roots.
  • The plug, the material the stem is inserted into, should be moist to the touch but not soggy. A slightly dry plug can recover, but avoid clones with completely dry and brittle plugs.

But what happens after you bring your clones home?

Here are some at-home care tips to ensure your new plants thrive:

  • Cannabis clones are fragile, so handle them with care during unpacking and transplanting.
  • Provide your clones with gentle, indirect light for 18 hours a day. Fluorescent T5 or LED lights are ideal.
  • Aim for a stable environment for your weed in Vancouver. Between 72-78°F (22-26°C) with humidity levels of 50-70% is ideal and promotes healthy root growth.
  • Water your clones lightly upon arrival, then assess the moisture content of the plug daily. Keep the plugs moist, but avoid overwatering.
  • After a minimum of 48 hours, transplant your clones into their chosen medium. Opt for a light, well-draining soil for beginners.
