CANNABIS CULTURE – Growing organic Cannabis is a hard enough skill to master, then when you learn about hydroponics and the more complex method of growing with an inert medium, you begin to understand how plants truly function. Below is better explained the differences between growing organically and growing with a hydroponic system, as well as the pros and cons to each.
Growing With Organics
Usually the starting point for all Cannabis growers and the most traditional way to grow. What is great about growing with organics is that the plants use a buffering zone to absorb the nutrients. This means that as a new grower, you will have some time before signs of overfeeding or underfeeding occur. What is also great about organics is that as long as your plants have access to all the primary nutrients and trace elements, as we would have a full fridge of food, then you can safely feed water that is the correct pH for the plants. Cannabis plants prefers a pH of 5.5-6.5 in order to coast along the fine line of nutrients. Plants will struggle to absorb trace elements above pH 7.5.
