When you grow your own plants you dont have to worry about quality and quantity and you can choose the strain that you like the most. Get huge yields using deep water culture (dwc) deep water culture (dwc) is a special type of hydroponics where you grow plants with their roots immersed in an aerated nutrient solution. Find out how more and more cannabis growers are using dwc to achieve faster growth and larger yields. When your cannabis plants grow slowly or stop growing altogether, there is always a reason. It could be a problem with nutrients, an environmental factor, or something else entirely. Lets explore the reasons your cannabis plants or seedlings may experience slow or stunted growth. whether you grow in soil, coco coir, or some other grow media, or if you water with water alone or a nutrient mix. The case for more frequent watering at smaller doses per watering. Your cannabis plants will never be as vulnerable as they are in their seedling stage. Seedlings are prone to damage and disease than they are at any other stage in the plants life cycle. Thats why taking special care at this point in the growing process is a must. Marijuana fertilizers as well as some trace minerals all plants need three basic macro elements to grow nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium (n-p-k) and numerous trace elements. Fertilizers contain these macro elements in various quantities and will label them in this order, thus a label that states will contain 10 nitrogen, 5 phosphorous and 5. Hydroponics is the science of growing medical marijuana without soil, most often in a soilless mix. Most growers today prefer hydroponics as it produces larger buds in a faster time. With hydroponics, nutrient uptake and grow medium oxygen content can be controlled easily. Cultivating clones in rockwool, coconut fiber or peat moss is considered growing hydroponically. With photoperiod (regular) strains, you can manipulate the light schedule in the flowering stage to get buds to mature faster. Although most plants will start flowering when they get less than 13 or 14 hours of light a day (thats when plants usually start flowering outdoors), it can take them a long time to finish and be ready to harvest with days that long. Cannabis drip systems, or drip irrigation systems, evenly distribute the water across your plants. These cannabis automatic watering systems work through using small tubes lined through the bottom of your plants that deliver water at a slow, tiny, yet consistent pace right to the bottom of your plant, where the root can suck it up. Cannabis growers around the world pride themselves on their ability to grow healthy plants with plenty of large sticky buds.
