Growing Marijuana Hydroponics - Hydro Weed Grow

Growing marijuana with hydroponics system does not require soil. It is a process of growing marijuana in an inert and sterile growing medium instead soil. Natural fertilizers are used for the cultivation and this process can give high yield of marijuana than growing it in soil. All the nutritional requirement of the plant is supplied with water mixed with nutrients. Marijuana plants do not require living soil; they require major elements such as phosphorous, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium and sulphur. The minor elements required for growing marijuana are iron, manganese, zinc, chlorine, copper, boron and molybdenum.

What are the advantages of using Hydroponics over soil for growing marijuana?


One of the advantages of using hydroponics system over soil for growing marijuana is the requirement of less space by the former. Hydroponics is a cleaner system unlike growing marijuana in soil. With the use of hydroponics, the growing time of the plants is faster. Usually the harvest is completed in twelve weeks of time which is much lesser than growing marijuana in soil. Hydroponics means automation which basically involves less man-power which saves time and money. Prevention of soil borne pests is one of the other main advantages of the use of hydroponics. With hydroponics one can have better control over the growing environment such as in vegetative and flowering stage of the plant. All these advantages of hydroponics result in higher yield in comparison to the plants grown in soil.


What are the disadvantages of hydroponics marijuana system?


The disadvantages of hydroponics are very few in comparison to the advantages. However one must consider some of the disadvantages of the hydroponics system for awareness before employing it for growing marijuana. The hydroponics system uses inert and sterile atmosphere as a medium to grow the plant instead of soil. This increases the initial cost of setting the system. Plants are supplied with all the necessary nutrients which play vital for their growth. The hydroponics system requires more skill and knowledge along with management on a daily basis. It is important to take some professional help before one goes for this system. This process requires more use of technical knowledge due to which things may sometimes go wrong. So if you are going into hydroponics gardening, you should do your homework beforehand and have a significant knowledge about it.

 

How to grow marijuana using Hydroponics?


It was discovered early in the 19th century by a Scientist that the roots of plant absorb nutrients present in water. Soil acts as a medium, but it is not necessary for the growth of the plant. Hydroponics is appropriate for generating high yield around the year. Most of the growers of marijuana are of the view that hydroponics grows plants faster than a soil growing medium. Rapid growth means less time for completing the crop. The plants which are grown by hydroponics respire easily and therefore their developmental period is considerably reduced. For setting up the hydroponics, a tank containing required nutrients is placed below the growing tray or pot. The tray or pot contains plants and inert and sterile medium such as Rockwool. The growing base is filled with nutrients mixed in water by a small pump with a timer. Pump is used to feed and water the marijuana plants. The timer helps in shutting off the pump and in this way the nutrient solution moves back into the tank.
