pH Level – You want your water’s pH around 5.6-5.8, anything from 5.4-6.0 is acceptable, but the closer to 5.7 the better.
The differences between each brand vary, but for the most part, they all work well. Each brand will have different setups, such as three part systems and A&B systems.
Cultivation and Care [ ]
Now that we’ve learned about the stock AeroGarden nutrients, let’s take a look into the different nutrients available.
See the Legal and medical status of cannabis Wikipedia article for information on the legal status of growing personal use marijuana in your area.
Feeding/Nutrient Schedule [ ]
There are several different brands to choose from, including: General Hydroponics, FoxFarm Nutrients, Canna, Dutch Nutrient Formula, etc.
Now it’s time to add nutrients to the water. Begin with half of the recommended dosage by the manufacturer.
I strongly recommend growing only one or two plants at a time. Your marijuana plants will need an increased amount of space while growing and try to put more plants will decrease the yield.
Since the maximum grow height is only 24 inches (when the LED panel is fully deployed), it’s crucial to choose a strain that will stay small and compact.
4. Nutrients and the importance of pH
Now the fun part! I assume you have already assembled your hydroponic system and you have transferred the solution to the AeroGarden reservoir.
In the flowering stage, it’s better to give an oxygen boost in the water for the increasing root masse of your plants. So, if you don’t have an external pump, set the pump to 60 minutes on, and 30 minutes off.

The external pump also helps to reduce the usage of the AeroGarden™ built-in pump. The water temperature will stay low, and you will be able to keep an optimal temperature (between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit).
The most recent AeroGarden Bounty comes with a 40-watt grow light. The Bounty Elite (WiFi and Alexa Compatible) comes with a 50-watt grow light and both have 24 inches of growing height capacity.
If you notice your leaves (which were growing normally) suddenly start growing with a weird number leaf points partway through the flowering stage, that’s a problem. It usually means your plant is re-vegging.
That’s why today, we’re showing you the 7 myths we hear most commonly, and our verdict on their usefulness. Protect yourself against faux-info!
(That being said, some bagseed plants come out great!)
So, do male plants actually contain any THC?
Myth #6 “More Nutrients = Faster Growth”
You’re looking for the all-inclusive collection of no-myth, time tested growing knowledge.
Many of us have grown up seeing Miracle-Gro being used in our homes, so we know that it works for ‘regular houseplants’. Cannabis is just a tough weed, so Miracle-Gro should be great for it, right?
Cannabis seeds don’t actually attach to the plant at the place shown in the diagram. Compare the illustrations to real cannabis seeds below.
Myth #1 “You can tell the sex of your plant by looking at the seeds.”
Re-Vegging Plant – Leaves Start Growing Single Points in the Flowering Stage. Not Good!
Giving the plant time with lower levels of nutrients can help use up all the extra nutrients in the leaves, and the color will slowly return to normal (though burnt tips never recover).
