Cannabis Hydroponics Principles
Hydroponics Principles in Growing Marijuana
Growing cannabis under a hydroponics setup is one of the most widely used systems in growing marijuana, especially in an indoor environment. What brought about the discovery of this system? Decades ago, marijuana is a plant that is freely grown in many places. However, upon discovery that there are some who ended up abusing the substance, law enforcement officials have mandated restrictions in activities relating to the growing of marijuana plants. This gave birth to the hydroponics setting.
However, if you are a beginner in this field, or may have been growing marijuana using this system but feel that you still lack the basic principles surrounding this technique, here are some information that you might want to check out in order to become a better marijuana grower.
Hydroponics Setup – Principles
When we say principles, they are the foundation of knowledge regarding a certain idea. Hydroponics work around several principles. Among them are the very basic principles, such as:
- For one, you will not decide to grow marijuana in this setting if you do not believe in yourself that this can give you the yield that you expect. Yes, there are a lot of advantages in growing marijuana in this type of setting. However, keep in mind that these advantages are only available to you after an initial investment, which is, towards the equipment and the tools needed to start the project.
- A maintenance checklist should be your partner all throughout the growing process. This should include a list of things that you need to complete in a daily, weekly, as well as monthly basis. All of these maintenance items need to be completed in order to make sure that every day, you are doing the right thing in growing your plants.
- Growing marijuana in a hydroponics setup still has to conform to the laws of nature. For example, marijuana is still a plant; a plant that needs sunlight, water and nutrients in order to survive. However, since you are growing the plants in a rather untypical setting, it is important to emulate the way it is normally done outdoors. Therefore, it is very important to get the right lightings, water supply, and nutrient solutions for your plants.
Marijuana growing may be challenging, that’s a fact. However, with the right amount of knowledge and perseverance, there is no doubt that you will harvest the yield that you have been expecting since day one of your growing project.
