Aeroponics for Weed

Please check your local states laws in Australia regarding the legalities of cannabis grown in Aeroponics or growing cannabis in general for that matter before continuing. 

What is aeroponics for weed? Aeroponics is a means to grow marijuana plants with no growing medium for the root system. Its kind of like Hydroponic gardening but rather than roots being suspended in water and nutrients, mist sprays out to feed the growing plants roots. The roots are suspended in air and mist sprays continually to deliver water and nutrients.

So how does Aeroponics work?

Aeroponics works by having the roots suspended in air, and then nutrients and water are sprayed continually to the roots to feed the plant. This combined with sun, CO2 and oxygen will assure your plants are healthy in an aeroponics environment. Just make sure your plants get a constant supply of water/nutrient mist to avoid nutrient deficiencies and dehydration.

In order to do this, aeroponics systems have to be setup in a particular way. The system is made up of two primary features (resorvoir and planter bed). The reservoir contains the water supply (this where you check for quality and nutrient amounts). The planter bed is where you grow your plants. There are various designs to choose from but most of them have these features: a misting system, drainage system and another system that supports and separates the roots from the plant. At the end of this, pumps are used to keep a constant exchange of water.

Tips on Growing Cannabis with Aeroponics

A good idea is to start a seedling off in a medium (such as rockwool cube), then place this in a net cup type pot that divides the inside and outside of a planer bed. You then place a collar on the base of the stalk. This collar is to help prevent mist from evaporating or prevent the stalk to mould. After a while, the roots will grow out of the rockwool downwards to collect the mist then the rest of the plant will grow upwards to collect the light.

The water that is being used to feed the plants is pumped through water lines with nozzles that spray. These integrate into the planter bed. When the water comes out of the nozzles, it sprays in a fine mist that covers the roots of your plant. The excess moisture then collects and drips downwards into the reservoir ready to be recycled.

Just to note, some systems are made to use the bottom of a planter bed as a reservoir and then pump the water straight back into the water lines. As this will work fine, it is a little harder to view the reservoir without disturbing the roots.

Wins / Drawbacks

Now although growing weed with aeroponics might come off as an awesome idea, this growing style isn’t easy. If you want to grow like this, make sure you have sound knowledge about growing cannabis and have the needed amount of money to put in in order to produce quality cannabis from aeroponics.

As aeroponics for weed requires the constant flow of mist to the roots, it requires the system to stay active all day everyday. If you have a power out, pump is damaged, nozzles that are clogged and empty reservoirs can screw up your grow with aeroponics. If your roots don’t get enough moisture, they will dry off and die. That’s why placing your attention on your system is crucial. If something fails and your not there, having someone on hand is your best next bet but, most of us don’t have that luxury. Other pitfalls are mould in the planter box and knowing when and how to feed your cannabis plants properly.

Benefits of Aeroponics Based Grows

There are many benefits that come growing with Aeroponics for weed. Roots are in constant contact with oxygen, which roots thrive on. The nutrients are mixed in water and sprayed directly on the roots making the solution readily available. That’s not the only benefit, aeroponics enables growers to plant each plant closer together. Plants don’t need to compete for soil territory. Having no soil also allows for quick and easy harvests and helps prevent pests that come with growing in soil. Another benefit is aeroponics uses less water and water that isn’t used is recycled in the system.

Quality of Cannabis Grown with Aeroponics

To cultivate massive, quality-resinous buds, aeroponics is your go to. Aeroponics is a growing style that expert growers use to grow big, potent buds. Others will say it doesn’t taste as good as opposed to cannabis grown in soil mediums, but the benefits out-weigh this. If you grow cannabis using the aeroponics technique, expect to see plants rich in trichomes with yields that are huge and potent.
