1. Water Efficiency– I've never used a grow set-up that did as much with one gallon of H2O as this one. The resevoir is almost one gallon and can easily support 3 strong plants (we'll get into that later down the road). Don't neglect to fill the resevoir as required with plain distilled water.
2. Ease of use– This system necessitates minimal cleaning through the whole growing cycle.
I have completed three grows using this system with wonderful results.
3. Size– This system is small enough to suit almost any small area. The Aerogardens dimensions are about TWELVE x TWENTY x EIGHT. They do make these in different sizes also. It is ridiculously space saving for its' designed (or unintended; ) function.
4. Resistance to Disease/Fungus– The build of the Aerogarden helps it to be resistant to outside contaminants. It is necessary, however, to maintain the paper tops to the seeds pods. These not only protect your little girls from bad microorganisms, by not allowing excessive sunlight to hit the sponge surface of one's growing medium, they also prevent sunlight from piercing to the roots, as a result damaging them. In case the paper tops come off, a handy replacement would be to cut out a bit of duct tape the size of the paper tops and put a hole in it and your good to go.
One love. In response to several AeroGarden questions that have been asked over the years, I have put together this overview on the pluses and minuses of this system.
At the time I wrote these lines, the available models are; Sprout, Harvest, Classic, Bounty, and Farm family. To grow weed successfully, you will need a garden with 24 inches of growing height capacity and a powerful grow light panel.
1. The Best AeroGarden Models For Weed
Classic 9 Bounty model has been replaced recently by a new design and this one is now obsolete but still one of the best to grow weed.
2.1 Cannabis seed types
So I target 6, and I check with the pH pen tester every day and make the required adjustments with pH buffers (do not use pH up and pH down in the same solution).
AeroGardens are proven effective in growing plants and, most importantly, five times faster than the soil. This is possible due to the direct supply of nutrients to the plants, which they are supposed to absorb from the soil and water. The nutrient solution provides the plant with the required amount of nutrition, fertilizer, and water.
Marijuana can be grown like any other plant. The Gardens are ideal for growing almost anything than why not weed. However, growing Marijuana in AeroGarden does have some drawbacks, and you need an ideal model to support your cannabis growth, so let’s discuss them further.
Can it be used in Growing marijuana?
Growing marijuana in AeroGarden is not impossible nor a difficult task. Indoor cultivation of cannabis is often done in a hydroponic setup and also transferred to the soil when needed, which is also indoors. Also, germination and growth of cannabis seeds are very well done in a similar setup, which involves grow lights and grow tent with other environment regulating grow setup. Therefore, growing Marijuana in AeroGarden is not an alien concept, but a complete setup.
The working principle of these gardens is simple but new to the ones who are not aware of it. This system uses a solution instead of soil to provide nutrients to the plants and uses structure, solid balls, or grow media to provide support to the growing plant instead of soil. The grow lights offer the full spectrum of light required for the growth and flowering of certain plants. The grow lights consist of every spectrum of sunlight and are also customizable according to the need.
Care to be taken while growing marijuana in AeroGardens
The use of the Garden looks complicated, but it is certainly not complicated or difficult. The system needs to be plugged into an electric connection and is ready to grow after you fill the reservoir with the nutrient solution. Everything at the place and few settings through the control panel, and you are good to go, just waiting for your plants and veggies to grow. They also do not need heavy maintenance, just cleaning in a few weeks and little monitoring and refilling of nutrients, if required.
