POGPHONIKA: That's how Cannabis grows on fog

After aeronics and acuponics, introduce the next generation of hydroponic systems: Fogponics - a fog-based habitat - will spoil the roots of cannabis with tiny, mineral-rich particles that will only do good to your plants. Especially good for the holes.

Many of the cannabis growers at some point experience some extraction from soil-based growth, and are looking for innovative breeding methods that are at least as interesting, if not more productive and quality.

Use Hydroponic systems Has become more popular among Israeli growers in recent years, thanks to the fact that this method enables faster growth compared to the traditional growth in the soil, without harming or even improving the quality of the final product.

Many original minds have worked over the years on the development of diverse hydroponic breeding methods, each of which has advantages and disadvantages in various parameters. Until recently, one of the most modern breeding systems in the genre was European system:

In the European breeding method, sprinklers are installed in the root environment, which are timed to splash splinters of water into the roots of the plant. An interesting example of the European tumor technique can be seen in the corner "Flower neighborhoods" of September 2014, In which the documentation of a local tower experienced the first time in this method.

POGPHONIKA = EUROPONICA 2.0

A growing system based fog Takes the europeans to the next level and in fact produces the roots of the most airy environment available to the plant as of today.

Unlike the use of sprayers (found in a European system), here is a dedicated fog maker called Fogger. The pup's function is to "crush" water droplets into particles smaller than 5-30 microns, allowing the roots to absorb fluids more easily, quickly and with minimal effort.

Fog manufacturing devices have been in use for many years in industrial agriculture - mainly for increasing humidity or massive dispersion of pesticides - but a commercial growth of the "pompon system" is not being used today, although quite a few home growers report impressive results.

Assembling the pogophonica system:

Although the method of growing fog is considered one of the most advanced cultivation techniques - it is actually very easy to assemble at home in a few minutes and minimum economic investment.

Ingredients:

  • A sealed vessel (with a lid) of at least 8-10 liters
  • 3-inch mesh pots
  • Drilled with 3
  • Pen or marker (for marking)
  • Fogger (Fogger)
  • HYDROTON - HYDROPONIC GROWTH SUBSTRATION
  • A young sapling

Preparation:

1. Mark the desired location of the plants

Important notes for growing fog:

  • As with any growth in a detached substrate, there is also a need for poppyonica Full feed Of fertilizers.
  • An increase in such a system may be particularly problematic and sensitive during the summer or in extreme heat conditions that may affect the temperature of the irrigation solution and the root environment.
  • There are towers that install a small fan to move the fog in the tank - many will argue that there is no need at all.
  • The irrigation solution must always be at least 2-3 cm above the fog height to ensure constant fog output.
  • Many misters (especially those not necessarily associated with hydroponics) come with small LED bulbs - make sure That they be turned off, Covered with adhesive tape or painted black.
  • Cheap fogging devices tend to spoil quickly when they come into contact with salt-rich water and fertilizer
  • The container in which the plants sat must be opaque to the light
  • Just as aerononics or some of the other hydroponic systems require some preliminary knowledge to achieve optimal results, this breeding technique is also recommended for experienced breeders.

European cuttings

In recent years many growers have begun to use European / Pogponic systems mainly for the purpose Implantation of cuttings. Some companies have begun to market European "planting machines" through which a large quantity of cuttings can be planted in a relatively short time.

European implantation systems allow the gears to enjoy good moisture content due to the fine particles of the solution, and in many cases there is no need for a top cover as is customary in traditional rooting methods.

In addition, the constant search for the moist area at the bottom of the system encourages root growth and causes an extremely fast implantation rate - between 5 and 15 a day.

Notes on rooting in a European system:

  • Many growers leave the pump (and sprays) in a regular operation for hours throughout the rooting period, but in many cases it is possible to "cut" by half and turn the sprinklers in half an hour on - half an hour off and still get excellent implantation rates.
  • There is no need to change the water during the rooting period of the cuttings.
  • Although most growers tend to maintain the pH balance of the irrigation solution, quite a few growers report 100 success even without this procedure.
  • Most of the tap water in the country will be good enough for this technique - if your home has extremely hard water it is recommended to use reverse osmosis water. In any case, it is best to place the water in the room for hours before use.
  • There is no need to combine fertilizers in the irrigation solution, but it is recommended to use the 4 rooting hormone.
