The Do’s of Hydro
Set-up the hydro with a back-up. How does one do this? Before a marijuana grower takes a bold step to grow in hydro, he must already be experienced in the traditional growing of marijuana plants, whether outdoor or indoor. This is important because this becomes the back-up in case the hydro you set-up fails or does not yield higher crops which you’ve come to expect.
Make sure you’ve done your research. Growing cannabis in hydro entails not only the techniques and technology, it also means as a grower you have to have a complete set of hydro equipment for your cannabis crops. This includes the weed seeds, white paint (or mylar), hydroponic vitamins, pots or other suitable containers recommended by hydro equipment stores, potting medium (such as coco coir), compact fluorescent lights (although, nowadays, the environment-friendly LEDs are much preferred), a timing device and a pH soil test. In short, you really need to be prepared to grow in hydro.
Prepare the pot room. The task of making ready the indoor hydro grow room is a basic principle. This gives the suitable environment for hydroponically tending your cannabis seedlings since light is very important to the growth and development of your marijuana seedlings. It maximizes their potential in more ways than you will realize it. The grow lights complement the hydro grows well.
