Aeroponics Advantages and Disadvantages
While there is a laundry list of benefits that come with growing cannabis using aeroponics, this method of gardening is not easy for beginners. Growers should have a vast knowledge about cannabis plants and the adequate funds to produce a quality product from aeroponics. It’s important to realize that this method requires close attention to detail, and therein lies many of its difficulties.
Aeroponic growing systems are based off a continual application of mist to the roots, thus requiring that the system stays active 24/7. Power outages, broken pumps, clogged nozzles, and empty reservoirs can all derail your garden. Roots without moisture will start dying within the hour. Systems must be in place to alert you of failures, and someone should be on hand to repair the issues presented, making aeroponics generally a costly means to growing cannabis. Additional hurdles include mold in the planter box and knowing when and how to properly feed your plants.
Sustainable Gardening Practices for Growing Cannabis
However, there are also numerous benefits that come with growing your cannabis with aeroponics. Your roots are in full contact with oxygen at all times and roots thrive on oxygen. Also, the nutrients dissolved in the water are being directly applied to the roots, making them readily available for the cannabis plant’s uptake.
Aeroponics allows plants to be placed closer together as they are not fighting for soil territory. The lack of soil also makes for quick and easy harvests and prevents pests commonly associated with soil from ever entering your cannabis grow space. Finally, aeroponics uses a very limited amount of water as all the water not being taken in by the plants is recycled.
Quality of Cannabis Grown with Aeroponics
Aeroponic systems are known for the quality product they produce. The combination of growing inside and applying nutrients directly the roots allows for the development of large, healthy buds. Flowers grown with aeroponics are known to blossom with ripe trichomes and in high yields, which make for a lucrative and desirable end product. However, sometimes they can lack the complex flavors that can be found by growing in soil.
