Nitrogen is one of the most essential elements of all. It helps building enzymes, proteins, and chlorophyll in the cannabis plants. Chlorophyll is further responsible for photosynthesis that helps the plant to grow.
Step 6: Insert the saplings
So, without wasting much of your time, let’s get growing!
You must have seen farmers putting fertilisers in their plants to control pests, keep them healthy, and enhance growth time. But, this is the case only with soil plants. When it comes to hydroponics, your nutrient mix is the only thing that your plant would need.
A reservoir or a water tank is where you add the nutrient solution and, its size depends on the size of your grow room. The air stone and water pump are placed inside the reservoir. A line from the air pump and the drainage line goes into the reservoir. The line from the water pump to the drip line and the power cord for the water pump will go out from the reservoir.
What are the best hydroponic nutrients for Marijuana?
These elements are further categorised into Macro and Micro. The macro elements include Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Nitrogen, Sulphur, and Potassium. The microelements incorporate Manganese, Chlorine, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Molybdenum, and Boron.
Let me make the whole of this hydroponic cannabis growing process easier for you. First of all, you need to understand that marijuana doesn’t necessarily require soil to bloom.
Benefits of Hydro Over Soil
Is Hydroponics Good for Growing Cannabis?
Hydroponics is when you grow your cannabis plant in an inert medium like coco or a reservoir of water, and provide all the nutrients to the plant directly in the water.
Today I’ll teach you how to set up your hydroponic reservoir for growing cannabis, and I’ll show you what you need to do each day for optimum growth
Pros of Hydro
Have you seen cannabis plants growing with their roots just floating in a reservoir of water? This type of hydroponics is known as Deep Water Culture (DWC), and has been around for over a 100 years! As more growers gain experience with this medium, DWC has become increasingly popular for growing cannabis. Hydroponic setups are really neat and offer some big benefits over growing in soil!
