Know More About Hydroponics To Get More Yields

Hydroponic Gardening

Hydroponic Gardening

Hydroponics is a technique by which plants are grown without soil, in a medium enriched with nutrient solution. In place of soil you can use a nutrient solution which is prepared by dissolving the nutrients in water. The nutrient solution gives your plants the nutrients that they would otherwise derive from soil. It is an easy and convenient method for growers and allows you to effectively increase yield.

You can choose from the various hydroponics systems available. The most basic types of hydroponic system are active and passive.  Nutrient Film Technique, aeroponics, and ebb and flow are some of the prevalent techniques. Highly productive, hydroponics systems are geared towards the conservation of water and land, besides being easier on the environment. A good hydroponic system also requires a good growing medium. A growing medium mostly comprises of inert material which has the capability to retain moisture and nutrients. Apart from this the growing medium helps in supporting plants and trees. Expanded clay, rock wool, perlite, vermiculite, Styrofoam, sand, gravel etc. are some of the growing mediums used by growers.

Hydroponics, a technology which holds huge potential to become the most preferred way of food production in the days to come, will soon dominate the way we cultivate and grow crops. Hydroponic gardening, essentially a method of growing plants in nutrient solution, with no soil has innumerable advantages over conventional plant growing methods. With arable land getting scarce by the day and ever increasing population, hydroponics promises to provide a solution to agriculture shortage and feed the population. Japan, one of the pioneers in hydroponics, has paved the road map for rest of the countries to embrace this technological breakthrough and solve the problems of food production. With surging population and decreasing arable land, Japan is one of the earlier adopters to this technology. With Hydroponic, the Japanese not only succeeded in solving the issue of decreasing cultivable land, they also increased the number of harvest from one to four cycles in a year.

Grow Marijuana with Simple Hydroponics

Grow Marijuana with Simple Hydroponics

Hydroponic Marijuana System

Hydroponic Marijuana System

You can effortlessly grow marijuana or weed or Cannabis Sativa at home whenever you want. Growing hydroponics marijuana seeds will provide bigger yields in lesser time. However, it’s important to know the basics of hydroponics before you start with marijuana planting in your garden. Most growers think that hydroponics is just about water but the truth is that hydroponics mainly includes direct supply of precise nutrients to the plants. The standard of hydroponic yields is very high!

With the help of these simple steps you can grow good-quality marijuana in just 3-4 days. This method is also known as hand-watering in soil-less medium. This method is cost-effective and efficient with production of about 1-3 ounces of fully dried buds per crop. Your budget will depend on the quantity of your plants.

  • Gather all the items. Ideally it requires $300-$500 for five plants and it will give 1-3 ounces per plant.
  • Use proper grow lights. Start by placing them at a height, may be a little above your pots and should have enough room to reach the final height of the fully grown plants. Depending on what grow area you grow your plants you can fix your light appropriately.
  • Now start proper watering and adjust the pH level to 5.5-6.0. Feed your plants with filtered nutrient-enriched water. Gradually increase the supply of nutrients with the growth cycle. Overdose of nutrients destroy plants so ensure that you provide your plants with adequate nutrients.
  • Don’t allow your growing medium, coco coir, to dry. Water it regularly with the nutrient solution.
  • Give your marijuana plants adequate light. Give them around 18-24 hours of light every day during the vegetative phase. The vegetative and seedling phases are the crucial phases for your marijuana plants therefore provide enough light to keep them healthy.
  • After your plants have achieved a final height its time you five them light for 12 hours and switch off the lights for next 12 hours.
  • Understand the right gender of your marijuana plants and trash the males. Female plants have white hair and males have pollen sacs. If females and males are allowed to stay together they’ll encourage groth of seeds germination and not buds.
  • The toughest part comes now when you have to wait to see your plants mature in the flowering phase. The flowering stage usually lasts for 6-12 weeks.
  • Before two weeks of harvests, feed your plants water with appropriate pH levels. After that stop feeding otherwise the taste of nutrients may reach the buds. For better taste it’s advisable that you don’t feed your plants two weeks prior harvests.
  • Do the final cutting by either cutting the whole plant or just buds at a time. The right time of harvests is when 50-75% of white hair turns brown or when crystals are either milky or half amber.
  • It’s advisable to trim your plants so that there aren’t many leaves hanging out from the buds because leaves can make your final smoke very harsh and they don’t contain THC, which you definitely don’t want in the final product.
  • Dry your trimmed buds by hanging them upside down in a cool and dark place.

Now place your buds in air-tight container and then leave them in cool and dark place for about 2 weeks to 1 month. Open the jar once a day to allow proper air ventilation and ensure that your jar is free from any moisture.

Hydroponics Cloning Gel

Hydroponics Cloning Gel

In hydroponics, cloning is considered as a difficult task. Don’t consider yourself alone if you’re facing problems while cloning. Even the most serious hydroponics growers face problems while cloning, because it’s very difficult to get 100% good results. However, there is easy way to grow your stems with the help of cloning gels. Precisely designed with variety of vitamins and hormones, cloning gels gives extra boost to the stems for quicker growth. And, successful cloning leads to faster formation of roots. Initially, cloning might disappoint you with lower success rate. Therefore, it becomes very important to use a good cloning gel.

There are various ways of improving the whole cloning process for instance by using good cloning gel. However it doesn’t guarantee 100% results. For better results, it’s advisable to apply old techniques of hydroponics gardening along with the use of cloning gel. Here are few smart tips that can help you get maximum benefits from your cloning gel.

  • Application: If you want your efforts to give good results then using a cloning gel is a must. These cloning gels come with important vitamins, hormones and many other materials that help quick absorption. Apply a layer of cloning gel to the lower section of the stem. Don’t make the mistake of covering the stem fully, as that will drown the whole stem.
  • Moisture: It’s very important to understand that when you remove the stem, its moisture also gets depleted. Your leaves struggle for moisture when the cloning gel is performing its work. The easiest way to provide moisture to your plants is by simply spraying water on the leaves twice a day. If your budget allows you can also attach timer with the spraying system for regular moistening of your leaves.
  • Stress: Most clones cannot cope with the stress after they are removed from the parent plant. This stressful situation makes it even more difficult for the growers to grow roots. A combination of cloning gel and Vitamin B supplement can give a less stressful growth. There are special cloning gels available on the market that can give your plants relief from the shock of separation from the parent plant.
  • Stems: Ensure that the stems you remove are from healthy parent plant. If the stem is unhealthy then even the best cloning gel is of no use. The stem you choose should be thick with few leaves.
  • Parent plant: Taking good care of your plants is important while cloning gel is performing its work. Proper lighting and well-balanced nutrient solution play a vital role in successful cloning. Using carbohydrate supplement is another smarter way of cloning. Excess carbs will give your plants extra energy to grow faster to grow roots.

The objective of cloning is to get maximum stems for survival and growth. It’s not a simple task but you’ll learn with experience. All you have to do is take every step carefully and whatever you use should be productive and should give immediate effects.

Indoor hydroponics gardening is growing rapidly because of limited space and resources. But, these indoor gardens are easily prone to enemies that you need to take care of and the most harmful of these enemies is gray mold (Botrytis Cinerea). It’s an interesting fact that “mold” is formed due to fungus. As an affectionate grower it’s a nightmare to see your flowers rotting right in front of you. You would never want to experience such thing as a hydroponics grower. Now you must be thinking how to control the growth of gray mold and what can you do to stop its growth in your grow room?

To protect your hydroponics grow room from gray mold is either by building a sealed grow room or by installing your existing grow room to be sealed one. You can refer to articles and guidelines provided online to get information on constructing a sealed grow room. It takes some efforts and little investment, but it’s worth the expenditure because it doesn’t allow molds, pests, fungi and other enemies to enter your grow room. Although clones cannot be responsible for bringing gray mold but it’s very important to examine them before you get them in your grow room.

Hydroponics Plants that you transferred from outdoor to indoor might carry gray mold in your hydroponic grow room. Gray mold can effortlessly survive in temperature ranging from 28-90°F. It can even rest in harsh conditions. It can travel with wind, air present in the grow room, tools, clothing and other plant parts. The best temperature for gray molds to grow is about 70-77°F, sadly it’s the ideal temperature for optimum growth of hydroponics plants too. Also, adequately adjust the humidity of your grow room to 43-52%. Gray molds love conditions where the humidity level is high.

Over watering can also be a reason for the formation gray molds in your hydroponics grow room. Especially during the bloom phase the flowers tend to sweat and it’s because of this moisture, gray molds are formed. You can tell about gray molds in your plants when you experience change in color of the flower leaves or hair to brown, curled leaves or petals, drying of flowers and a portion of a flower turns grey or black overnight.

The best thing you can do to remove gray mold is by simply shifting the entire hydroponics plant to another room. Then turn off the fans and cut the branches affected and dispose them quickly to some other place. Carefully observe the plant for few days to see if mold returns. Properly clean all hydroponics systems and equipment that touches your plant. Wear clean clothes and take a shower before you enter your grow room. With this handy info you can enjoy gardening without worrying about the enemies!
