I visited an indoor marijuana garden. The grower was my brother’s friend, begging for help because his cannabis plants were dying and he couldn’t figure out why. Went to his grow room and sadly witnessed the following insanity: Pieces of potato chips on the floor. Miracle-Gro plant food containers. CFLs and T5’s…no actual hydroponics lighting. […]
We’ve talked before about flushing marijuana plants at end of bloom phase and at other times earlier in their lives. Hydroponics systems with no solid root zone materials, such as deep water culture and aeroponics, are easy to flush. But if you’re growing in soil, or in rockwool, coco, or other soilless mediums, flushing is […]
When you grow marijuana, especially if you’re using hydroponics nutrients in pure hydroponics systems, your plants are taking in “nutrients salts.” You might also be doing foliar sprays containing supplements, or even pest control compounds. These stay on your crops unless you wash them off. I make sure that I never use pesticides like Avid […]
In a previous article about outdoor marijuana growing, we saw how selecting the right marijuana strains makes a big difference in how much bud you harvest outdoors. Depending on genetics, marijuana strains handle daylength, mites, powdery mildew, gray mold, drought, rain, heat, and other threats differently. What works well for an indoor hydroponics marijuana grower […]
In the ongoing debate between supporters of “organic” marijuana versus hydroponics marijuana, you often hear about “compost tea.” You get faster marijuana growth, larger/stronger marijuana roots, detoxified soil and root zones, and protection against root zone diseases and pathogens when you use bioactive compost tea. If you use compost tea as a foliar spray, your […]
Before climate change, polar vortex winters, and Western United States drought, outdoor medical growers started their plants in greenhouses or indoors in late February and March, hardened them off, then transplanted them into full outdoor terrain in April or May. Today, I know growers who start their outdoor plants as early as December; some of […]
I enjoy online hydroponics marijuana cultivation discussion forums like rollitup, grassvalley, icmag and others. There are marijuana growers on those forums who post useful grow op information and mouthwatering pictures of phat crops. BigBudsMag.com recently ran an article explaining how you safely participate in online hydroponics forums to network with thousands of hydroponics marijuana cultivators […]
Sometimes I look at other people’s marijuana gardens and notice their buds are phatter and stickier than mine! I wonder how they do it. I used to think it was only because they spent thousands more dollars on their marijuana grow room than I did, or they had better marijuana genetics to start with. Then […]
