Hydroponic Cannabis Cultivation
All you Need to Know
The acidity of the environment is of great importance when cultivating hemp. It doesn’t matter if you grow your plants in soil or hydroponically. The substrate, soil, or nutrient solution has its own pH in any case. Plant health and the ability to digest various nutrients directly depend on the acidity of the environment. Only by maintaining the optimal pH for your cannabis can you produce a decent, high-quality crop.
A stable pH is one of the secrets to the vigorous growth of cannabis, and its sudden change may cause great problems for plants. Stress due to pH changes, temporary stop of growth are the least of the possible difficulties. The ability of hemp to absorb necessary elements depends on the acidity of the substrate or nutrient solution. Both low and high pH leads to a lack of certain minerals. Fertilizing the soil will not solve the problem. Macro and microelements will accumulate in soil or water, but the roots will not be able to absorb them. What are the optimal pH values for cannabis?
