A simple solution is to create a CO2 drip.

The complete guide…
If you want big buds, increase the lighting intensity and the level of CO2 your plants receive. The trouble with indoor growing is that the air tends to have lower CO2 levels than outdoors.
5 – Carbon Dioxide
You can invest in a CO2 generator if you are growing lots of cannabis plants. Be careful, though, as excessive CO2 levels are harmful to humans.
The sheer array of equipment available to cannabis growers means it should, in theory, be easy to produce a bountiful harvest. New technology means you can grow dozens of plants in a small area, assuming you have a commercial license. Otherwise, you need to get the most out of a handful of plants, or the time you invest will amount to very little.
For best results, make sure the buds are directly exposed to light. Most experts agree that you need to use HPS lamps when growing marijuana indoors. Remember, your plants need 16-20 hours of light during the vegetative stage. Switch to 12 hours light and 12 hours of total darkness in the flowering stage.
2 – Achieving the Perfect pH
Keep an eye on your plants during the growing season. Increase your feeding schedule if the plants have light green leaves. Cut it back if the leaves have brown edges and its tips start to curl back. Home growers can also add compost tea to plants to aid bud growth.
Your marijuana plants require CO2 for photosynthesis. More is better as far as carbon dioxide is concerned because an increased amount boosts growth. It is also essential to add extra CO2 when increasing the intensity of the lighting. For reference, the air we breathe contains 350-400 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide. Your plants use the CO2 and combine it with light to create the sugars that are pivotal to their growth.
The following chart shows a breakdown of how long each stage takes in relation to the total time required to grow weed from nothing to the point where you can smoke it. This is based on the average time required for each stage. As you’ll see below, the actual times can vary greatly.
We’ll go into more detail on how to speed up the process below. First, let’s try to answer the primary question as best we can.
You’ll notice many of them are autoflower strains. Autoflowers are always a good choice, if you are looking to reduce the overall time it takes to grow your weed. They start budding much faster.
