Mixed gender of a cannabis garden is not advisable if it is being done for the produce as it will be so much lower than if only female plants were present. The reason where mixing the male and female plants reduces produce is because the male plant starts producing pollen grains that fertilize the flowers of the females leading to seed production instead of leave production.
Cannabis like any other plant needs to be grown on fertile soil to increase its produce and maintain good health. All nutrients required by crops should be available in the soil where cannabis is grown as a deficiency of these nutrients leads production of low quality or small sized leaves especially if the missing nutrients is a nitrate. Provision of quality and unlimited light ensures better health and production by marijuana. Light is used in a crucial process in plants known as photosynthesis which when deficient or absent guarantees death of the plant.
Photosynthesis is of so much importance as it is the process that gives plants uniqueness of synthesizing glucose, if this process fails, the plant cannot reach maturity as glucose is necessary for growth of plants.

Humidity levels should be average during vegetative periods and should be lowered during the formation of flowers to avoid mold formation.
