PLANT NUTRITION SYSTEMS

Your grow Media, Nutrients and Microbes work together as a system to feed your plants

Different feeding systems work in different ways, but every system includes Grow Media, Nutrients and Microbes in some form or another.  Understanding how these components work together can help you make better decisions in your garden and take better care of your plants

PARTS OF THE SYSTEM:

MEDIA

Media provides structure-  It serves as a habitat for the roots, air, nutrients and microbes that make the system work.  In some cases, the grow media also comes pre-loaded with some nutrients and microbes.

NUTRIENTS

Nutrients provide the fuel-  Nutrients and minerals provide food for plants so they can grow and thrive.  Nutrients are the building blocks a plant uses to build new tissue.

MICROBES

Microbes are the catalyst-  Microbes and soil biology help process nutrients and make them available to the plants.  They also help to manage ph and provide a healthy environment for root growth.

THERE ARE MANY NUTRIENT SYSTEMS

Different systems work in different ways:

In hydroponic systems, water acts as the media.  Nutrients come in the form of chemical salts added to the water by the grower.  Beneficial microbes added to the water help make the nutrients more available, and out compete pathogens that can harm your plants.

In a soil grow, soil is the media.  Healthy soil will also contain a limited supply of nutrients and beneficial microbes.  The soil stores these nutrients like a battery, but as your plant grows, eventually the stored nutrition will run out. When this happens, the nutrients in the soil will need to be replenished with dry amendments or a liquid fertilizer.

To get the best results, It’s critical to understand the system you are working with, and to have a good plan for how you intend to use it!

WHICH SYSTEM SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?

There are TONS of different growing systems to choose from.  There is no “BEST SYSTEM” for growing cannabis.  All growing styles have advantages and disadvantages.

Try to pick a system that works best for YOU!  Different systems might work better or worse depending on your situation and your style of doing things. Do some research on various growing styles and find a method that is a good fit for your situation and your personality.

HERES A FEW GROWING SYSTEMS THAT I RECOMMEND CHECKING OUT

These systems are all:

  • Relatively easy to use and “new grower” friendly
  • Well supported by guides and help from the community
  • Affordable and widely available in most areas
  • Known for growing great quality cannabis (and even winning some awards!)
