How to Grow Medical Marijuana Hydroponically

grow medical marijuana

It’s known by many names, marijuana, cannabis, pot, weed, whatever you call this herb is used for various purposes and ailments. You can buy marijuana online or order marijuana online through an online medical dispensary or a regular medical dispensary. Or you can grow medical marijuana, long as it’s legal to do so, where you are. There are several methods you can use to grow medical marijuana; one of them is by growing it indoor hydroponically.

The word hydroponics originates from Latin and means ‘working water’, in other words it means growing plants without soil.

First things first, get all the items you need to start this process: pots, white paint or mylar, hydroponic nutrients, potting medium e.g. coco coir, compact fluorescent lights, a timer, pH soil test and of course the marijuana seeds or clones. Once you’ve gotten all these things you can move on to the next step.

Select the room you’ll be growing in, the grow room, and get the walls ready by painting them white, either semi-gloss or flat. Flat white paint is better because glossy white will reflect about 55% of the light source. Mylar is also very reflective.

Take a look at the steps:

  • The next thing to do is set up the grow lights in the room.
  • The light should only be a little higher than the height of your pots with an ideal temperature of around 80 °F (27 °C) and 85 °F (29 °C).
  • Your grow room also needs proper ventilation.

And now that your room is ready you need to germinate the marijuana seeds. Once the germination process is complete, move the seeds to the potting medium and feed it with water and nutrients. You’ll need to watch it carefully to make sure you’re giving it enough water and nutrients.

Right now the plant would be in its vegetative stage, when it is focused on growing. Give the plants about 18-24 hours of light daily to keep it in the vegetative stage until they are half the intended height. And when they’ve reached that height you start the flowering stage by giving the plant about 12 hours of light daily.

Get rid of the male plants, which do not have usable buds. It will take a couple weeks, 6-12 weeks, for the flowering stage to complete, focus on feeding it with pH’ed water and then a couple more weeks before harvest time. Then it will be time to trim and cure your hydroponically grown marijuana.

Using the hydroponics method has the advantage of producing higher yields of medical cannabis and it also has a shorter grow time when compared to growing it in soil. So whether you need marijuana for migraines, anxiety, diabetes or any other of the numerous medical marijuana benefits, growing hydroponically is an option to consider.

    This article helped me soo much. One of my friends was trying to convince me to start a Hydro set up. I told him it takes a lot of time, effort and materials. After reading this article, I see I made the best choice to just grow outdoors in my backyard 🙂
