Nutrients and Chemicals to Grow Marijuana

botanicare nutrients marijuana cannabis growing plants

There are so many companies making Nutrients and Chemicals for growing cannabis that it can be very confusing when it comes time to buy nutrients for your marijuana plants. I have always used General Hydroponics Flora Series Grow Chemicals for all of my hydroponic gardens. Lately I have been using a few other brands of chemicals in some of the grow rooms I consult for, which I also recommend buying.

Hydroponic Nutrients for Marijuana Growing

Growing Marijuana plants in hydroponic systems requires the use of Chemicals that contain all of the Nutrients necessary for healthy vigorous plant growth. Most companies make their nutrients in 3-part packages. The General Hydroponics Flora Series uses up to 8 different grow chemicals. I use 5 different nutrients for growing weed.

Nutrients and Additives for Growing Large Buds

Using additives will help the plants grow at steady vigorous rate with large yields and sweet flavors. Additive Nutrients contain extra vitamins and minerals that regular grow nutrients do not contain that plants use as a steroid to grow very large.

The Advanced Nutrients ‘Big Bud’ and ‘Bud Candy’ are excellent for large buds full of flavor.
The General hydroponics Flora Nova, flora kleen and Maxi gro are my favorite nutrients for producing large cannabis plants and buds.

    I’m new at the hydroponic method, though it is designed to be easier, I’m finding the hardest part lies in choosing chemichals. I will be purchasing this ebb/flow hydroponic grow system:

    I’ll be using clay pellets as a grow medium, unless you can recommend a better option and of all the websites offering chemicals and nutrients; none make recommendations such as you have.

    Can you offer nutrition instructions, along with specific chemichals/nutrients, for this system, including how often to dispose of and replace nutrients?

    Thanks, in advance,
