From howtogrowmarijuana.com here is some valuable info to grow marijuana:How to grow hydroponic marijuana Complete Guide
Hydroponic Marijuana Guide (Page1) )
This is a complete guide to growing marijuana hydroponically (indoors). This guide is meant only to be used in areas where growing marijuana is legal.
Growing Hydroponics Marijuana Introduction
Expect to pay about $500.00 for a light, hydroponic marijuana setup and everything else you will need to raise your crop hydroponically. You can spend more or less than that, but $500.00 is the average initial setup price for a personal marijuana garden (6 plants). Once you get things set up you can continue to raise new crops with your set up and only have to spend money on nutrients, bulbs, and other maintenance.
After a few crops (you will make mistakes at the beginning), your product will be better (if the seeds you used were good) than anything that you would normally buy, at a fraction of the cost.
Hydroponic Marijuana Set Up
All growing described on this page is done using the Ebb and Flow system. The Ebb and Flow system is one of, if not the most popular hydroponic methods for growing marijuana. It is simple and easy to use.
It works like this: A reservoir containing nutrient solution is located below a growing tray. The tray contains the plants that are in containers with growing medium like rockwool.
The growing bed is filled with nutrient solution by a small pump on a timer to feed and water the plants. The timer then shuts the pump off and the nutrient solution drains freely back into the reservoir.
Ebb and Flow systems' are favored because of their low maintenance, high productivity, and ease of use. Ideal not only for the beginner, but for the advanced marijuana gardener as well.
Most, if not all the information presented can be adapted to work with other forms of hydroponic systems. For a description of marijuana hydroponic system types, check this page.
If you are going to be growing hydroponic marijuana, you need a hydroponic garden. You can make one yourself by using instructions you can find here. They are not hard to make and almost any building supply store should have the majority of stuff required.
If you would rather buy a unit, it may cost a little more but all parts will be included and you will save time by getting everything at once. I got an 11 marijuana plant unit for $150.00. US. You can probably find something just as good or better for less money on eBay.
Don't make it public, the growing that will take place. Be safe, it may not be that way in the future. So don't leave any public trails back to yourself. It could be a headache once neighbors know what your doing.
Metal Halide (mh) or High Pressure Sodium (hps) are the marijuana lights to get for growing hydroponic marijuana. If you want to build your own metal halide light fixture, plans are located here. By adapting the plans you can also build a high pressure sodium fixture.
Metal halide light is close to regular room light or cool fluorescent light (blue spectrum) and is best for vegetative (beginning) growth. While high pressure sodium is in the red end of the spectrum and is best for flowering (later) growth.
You can run
1) either mh or hps light through both stages of growth (good).
2) run a mh light through the veg phase of growth followed by hps light through flowering (very good).
3) run both mh and hps light through all phases of marijuana growth (best).
I've found either a single metal halide or high pressure sodium light system works nearly as good as a dual system. So if you only have one or the other don't worry, it will work just fine.
You can't use a standard hps bulb in a mh fixture, but you can use a mh bulb in a hps fixture of the same wattage. I didn't think this was possible till several years ago when someone I trust told me it was possible. So I decided to try using a 400 watt mh bulb in a 400 watt hps fixture.
The plants are growing as well as they did under the mh bulb in a mh fixture. The bulb hasn't had to be replaced and the ballast runs as cool as it does with a hps bulb. When I want to use the hps bulb, I simply remove the mh bulb and replace it with a hps bulb.
So if you can only afford or only want a single fixture, We recommend getting a hps fixture and standard mh and hps bulbs rated for the same wattage as your light fixture. Use the mh bulb for veg growth and the hps for flowering. There are hps bulbs that can be used in a mh fixture and vice-versa. But these are special bulbs and cost about double the price of a standard bulb.
Bear in mind, you can only use a bulb of the wattage you light system was designed for. A 400 watt system only uses 400 watt bulbs. Don't use any other wattage than the one listed on the ballast of your light system. One exception I have seen is a 430 watt bulb designed for a 400 watt system.
There will also be a lamp type specified on you light system (probably on the ballast itself). My 400 watt metal halide setup specifies an M59/H33 lamp type. M59/H33 is an ANSI (American National Standards Institute) ballast rating. M59 is a 400 watt metal halide ballast. H33 is a 400 watt mercury vapor ballast. So my light fixture could run a 400 watt metal halide or 400 watt mercury vapor bulb.
400 watts is about the best size of light for growing hydroponic marijuana in a personal garden. You should be able to grow 4 to 12 plants at a time. 250 watts should be good enough for up to about 2 to 6 plants. Anything larger (the next standard size is 1000 watts) and you are going to draw a lot of electricity. Anything smaller will limit the size of your garden to one or two plants, unless you can supplement it with strong sunlight.
Expect to pay $150.00 to $500.00 for a 100 to 1000 watt lighting system. You can get a 400 watt gym type (high-bay or low-bay) light (hps or mh) for about $150.00. While a 400 watt horticultural quality grow light system will cost $300.00 or more.
I use a 400 watt metal halide gym type light (high bay) on an 11 plant garden, it works fine with 6 to 10 plants. I usually grow 3 to 6 medium size plants at a time. I start the flowering phase at about 12 inches and the plant grows to about 18 inches at harvest time.
If you can afford a lighting system made for horticultural purposes with a good reflector and ballast, get it. It will last longer, allow the light to cover a larger area (more plants), and increase the amount of light individual plants get.
You can also find some high-end dual (hps and mh) fixtures. These dual systems can provide both mh and hps light through both growth phases. You might want to consider one of these, if you haven't already bought your lighting source yet. If you can't afford better, a high-bay or low-bay type light will work fine. I use one.
The best source I have found for buying lighting fixtures, bulbs, and other hydroponic equipment at very good prices is eBay. There is lots of competition and selection.
Seeds Or Clones
If you know someone who grows, ask them for a few clones. If you don't have access to clones you will have to get seeds. If you don't already have some, you can ask you friends to save you seeds out of any good weed they may come across.
The better the weed that the seeds come from is, the better your marijuana crop will be. If the marijuana the seeds came from was no good, your marijuana crop will probably not be any better.
Starting Marijuana Clones
Take your marijuana clone and put it in the grow cup. Surround the marijuana clone with enough media to keep it stationary in its holder. See the next section for further information on media and placing your marijuana seed in the holder.
Germinate The Marijuana Seeds
Set up your hydroponic garden before you germinate the marijuana seeds. Make sure everything works fine. If you are using marijuna clones, skip this section unless you need further information on media and placing your marijuana seed in the holder.
Follow the directions located here to germinate your cannabis seeds. After the seeds have germinated and the marijuana root is about a quarter of an inch long, place the seed, root down, on your grow cube or media that is in your hydroponic cups.
The standard thing to do is use a rockwool cube to start the seed on and surround it with whatever media you use. Keep the rockwool cube so that the bottom 70% or so is submerged when the water is at max, but keep the top part above the water so that the seed is never submerged.
There are various types of media available to grow in. Rockwool is one, but there are many others. Media simply means the substance that the roots grow in. Since you aren't using soil in a hydroponic garden, you need a substitute.
The media will provide no nutrition, it is just a support for the roots. All nutrition comes from the marijuana hydroponic solution. Do some online searching or refer to whatever book you have about hydroponics if you want to learn more about media used for hydroponic purposes.
Vegetative Marijuana Growth
The first phase of marijuana growth is called the vegetative phase.
If you plan on using the mh or hps right away, start with the light about 20 inches or more above the top of the plant and lower the light an inch or so daily until you think the height is right. Too close and the plants will dry and turn brown. Too far and the plants grow too tall as they stretch to get closer to their light source.
You can also start the vegetative phase of marijauna with a fluorescent light turned on for 18 to 24 hours a day for the first one or two weeks or longer. You can use a standard 48 inch fluorescent fixture (with two) 40 watt bulbs placed about 2 to 8 inches above the tops of the plants.
3 to 5 inches is ideal, but you might have to raise the light a bit higher so all the plants get some light, depending on your setup. Mix your hydroponic nutrient solution to 50% of the normal recommended strength for the first two weeks of growth regardless of lighting.
The reason for starting off with fluorescent lighting is to not give the plants too much light at the beginning of the growing process. Let them build up to it as they would in nature where the seeds would germinate in spring when the sun is not as strong as it will be in summer.
An alternative to growing under hps or mh during vegetation is to set up a vegetative area, and a flowering area.
The vegetative area would use a cloner or something similar that would allow seeds or clones to grow and two standard 48 inch fluorescent tubes, turned on 24 hours a day.
You can build a very good cloner yourself with the instructions found at overgrow and sometimes you can find a marijuana cloner at eBay. They range in price from $15.00 to $100.00 but are not always available.
The marijuana flowering area would use a standard hydroponic set up with hps and/or mh fixtures turned on for 12 hours a day.
While the flowering marijuana plants are going through their cycle with the hydroponic set up, the germinated seeds or clones will have a few months to develop in the cloner. After the flowering plants have been harvested, the plants in the vegetative area are ready to move to the flowering area. New seedlings or clones can then be started in the cloner.
There are two main benefits to this kind of set up. Electricity use will be about 25% to 35% less because the mh or hps light is only on 12 hours a day. The longer a plant has been growing in the vegetative phase, the quicker it will flower.
The only drawback I have found is the extra area needed to set up two different grow areas. Since the flowering marijuana plants need absolute darkness during the dark phase, the light from the vegetative area can't reach the flowering plants. So they need to be isolated, either by using curtains (or something similar) or by being located away from each other.
Start Growing Hydroponic Marijuana
Try to keep the mh or hps light about 12 or more inches above the tops of the plants. If the parts of the marijuana plants closest to the light dry out, raise the height of the light source, they are too close. If the plants are too far from the light they will stretch and be tall but not have much bud. That is a waste of space. Start high and lower the light an inch or two daily until you think the height is right.
During the first stage of growth, the vegetative stage, keep the light on 16 to 24 hours a day minimum. The longer it is on, the faster the plants will grow, but the higher you electricity bill will be.
Flowering is the phase of marijuana growth that produces the most THC (the active ingredient that produces the high). Once flowering begins, the height of the plants will taper off as the plant energy is used in the flowering process itself.
You can start flowering when the plants are a minimum of about 12 inches high, but its best to get them at least 2-3 feet high. This will take 4-5 weeks of vegetative growth in most hydroponic gardens. When you want to start flowering, cut the light back to 12-13 hours a day.
The height of the marijuana plant will continue to increase for about two to four weeks after marijuana flowering has been started, after that all the plants energy will be used for flower production.
Limiting the height of a marijuana plant has always been a difficult task for me, so I just raise the height of the light as the plant grows, the Marijuana Growers Guide has the most comprehensive descriptions I have seen on limiting the height of marijuana plants.
The flowering cycle lasts about two months, sometimes a little longer, depending on the type of marijuana seed. So the total length of time to raise a crop should be 3 to 4 months in a hydroponic garden.
During flowering the dark period must be perfectly dark. No room light, sun light, or any other light should reach the marijuana plant in the 12 hours of darkness that the plant must get everyday. The strongest light that should reach the plant during flowering would equal that of moonlight.
Stronger light than this will delay flowering, and if it continues there is a chance that the plant will not flower, but stay in the vegetative phase.
This is more important in the fist 6 weeks of flowering. When the marijuana plants have started to flower for over a month, small amounts of light for short periods of time are not as harmful.
You will know the marijuana plants are flowering when you see what look like little white hairs developing at bud sites. They should be visible after about two weeks of the flowering marijuana light cycle. These will eventually be the red hairs that you see on good marijuana bud that you have probably smoked in the past or are smoking now.
Hydroponic Marijuana Guide (Page1, Oregon Medical Marijuana, was passed by the voters ofOregon about 10 years ago. To this date Medical marijuana in Oregon has been inching upward, in terms of the number of patients. Growers are in high demand these days. If you believe, you or someone you know is capable of meeting the requirements of a Oregon medical marijuana grower, then you should apply as a grower on this site. Becoming an Oregon Medical Marijuana grower has its rewards. If you like helping others, and are good at what you do then volunteer your skills to helping other OMMP Oregon marijuana patients get the medicine they need.There are a few upcoming ballot measures regarding Oregon Medical Marijuana dispensaries.
