Hydroponic Cannabis Cultivation
All you Need to Know
When growing marijuana, the acidity (pH) and electrical conductivity (EC) of the medium play an important role. Health and the yield of the crop directly depend on these characteristics. You can simply plant the bushes, periodically apply fertilizers, and hope for a good result. However, in the absence of pH and EC control, cannabis can suffer from an excess of some nutrients and therefore block the absorption of others. At the same time, the grower will think that there is simply not enough fertilizer for the plant, but the next portion will only aggravate the situation.
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?
