Hydroponics Principles in Growing Marijuana Growing cannabis in 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 freely-grown plant. However, upon the […]

Autoflowering marijuana seeds are known to grow hardy plants and they are easy to grow. You can find beginners growing autoflowering marijuana seeds indoor soil despite their photo-independent nature and low-maintenance. Autoflowering seeds can benefit from being cultivated into an optimized soil, taking up needed nutrients to reach their highest […]
Growing weed needs discretion these days. Because of this, the implementation of several methods occurs in order to make sure that the position, as well as the safety of the grower, is maintained and uncompromised. Hydroponics is one of the most effective ways of growing in an indoor environment.
Under hydroponics, there are systems implementable, depending on the preference of the grower, along with several other factors. Among the systems is Top Feed Grow, also known as Top Fed Deep Water Culture, or sometimes fancily called Bubbleponics.
The Bubbleponics Technique
When growing marijuana using the bubbleponics technique, you can expect to have consistent huge yield, thus allowing for a faster harvesting time as compared to other growing methods. This is by far, the easiest technique to ensure a high yield in marijuana growing.
The advantages of growing marijuana with the use of the bubbleponics technique include consistent high yields as compared to the number of nutrients, light, as well as time that goes to every plant. At the same time, expect quick growth with a low maintenance after the setup. Also, it does not need much space. As a matter of fact, it may even be set up even in smaller spaces such as a closet.
The disadvantages of this technique include the need to work more in order to set the system up. The roots of the plant grow directly in water. Thus, you may experience issues with root rotting as well as other root concerns. However, even though these problems exist, they are quite easy to prevent. It is very important to maintain the right temperature in a hydroponics setting. As such, this method may not work well with HID lighting, unless you have a good exhaust and ventilation system. This system works well with either MH or HPs lights as long as the temperature is under good control.
The basic idea under top feed grows systems is that you feed your marijuana plant with nutrient filled flowing water coming over the roots through the reservoir in the water below. With this technique, growers hang roots without the medium so as to get the best access to oxygen, water, as well as nutrients.
