Hydroculture cultivation is simply water-based cultivation. This is the most advanced way of growing cannabis so far. According to professional growers, this also yields the best results. With Hydro cultivation it is important to dose the food correctly, which makes it difficult to grow. With Hydro cultures it is important that the roots are absolutely not exposed to light. This is because the nutrients are broken down by light.
Hydroponics cultivation with rock wool
Rock wool is light, cheap and takes up a lot of water. Rock wool can be found in every hardware store or online grow shop. Rock wool is known for its high pH value. We therefore advise you to require the pH value before you put your plant or seed in it. You can read here how to check your pH value.
Hydroponics with clay pellets
Clay pellets are available in every hardware store and online grow shop. Clay pellets have various advantages such as that they can be used for a long time and can be reused. Clay granules absorb the moisture so that it retains for a long time and gradually releases. However, the roots are less able to nestle. Do you still want to grow on clay pellets? Then we advise to first place the seedling in a block with rock wool!
