Guide to buying equipment in growing stores (Hydro)

It usually takes a long time between the first stage of thinking about the possibility of growing cannabis at home and the actual growth of cannabis itself. Towards the growth stage there are preparations to be made, including the acquisition of appropriate breeding equipment. So how and where can you buy equipment for growing cannabis? In nurseries, but not only ... Beginner's Guide

When you want to start growing cannabis at home, you immediately have concerns about required equipment, restrictive conditions, understandable fear, and more. Since the cannabis plant is illegal, most of the growth is done in homes and not under sunlight - and this requires adjustments, so those who have already decided to take the plunge and grow a cannabis plant themselves need help at first.

In order to grow cannabis at home, there is a list of the basic equipment you need, based, of course, on what every plant needs - light, water, soil. For example, since there is no sunlight, special bulbs - HPS bulbs - are needed. Ordinary fluorescent bulbs will not do the job, as do ordinary household bulbs. Then How will we know which bulb to buy? And how will we know which tent to buy if we do not have a closed place? And which fertilizer is better?

The truth is that most of the information can be found online today - Beginner Growth Guides, Beginner Forum - and therefore you can know everything before you get to the stage of purchasing equipment, but in practice, the purchase itself most people prefer Do physically in store And not by sending them to the address of the house, which may turn over things that do not want to be closed.

What is "Hydro Growing Shops"

So you have to go to the store and buy cannabis cultivation equipment, but while some of the equipment - like land, for example - can be bought at any nursery, there are important emphases, plus special products to be made and purchased specifically in cannabis cultivation. That's exactly why "Hydropower stores".

Why "Hydro-growing stores" rather than "Cannabis growing stores"? You can guess alone, but here's a simple explanation for someone who is not involved in the details.

The growth of cannabis in the house is somehow referred to as "hydro-growth" in Hebrew, because in some of the closed living rooms that people built in their homes during the years of banning cannabis cultivation, they preferred to use water-based systems for various reasons of cleanliness, savings, The name "hydro" (hydro = water). The truth is that even tomatoes can be grown in "hydro" and so are avocados, lettuce or cucumber, but the term is attached to cannabis.

Another reason for the rooting of the term "hydro" - and perhaps the main one - is of course the police, or rather the police spokesman, who enjoyed and still enjoys calling two plants in the tent "Hydropower Laboratory." It seems to sound to the public as something more dangerous with an English word. The absurdity reached its peak when, a few years ago, newspapers published headlines such as "Grass Hydro = The Sam of Death."

Why Hydro Store rather than Nursery?

So when you say "hydro-growth" you mean "growing cannabis." Accordingly, it is said that "hydro-growth stores" actually mean "cannabis growing stores." And just as "hydro-growth" is not necessarily "cannabis growth," so also "hydro-growth stores" are not necessarily "cannabis growing stores" - and they can also be found in all the equipment needed to grow every plant in the world.

Usually you will find it difficult to find out if you have reached the right place and what makes this equipment store unique to any growing store or other nursery.

The truth is that there is not much difference and cannabis grows like any other plant - and so does the products needed to grow it. The difference that exists, and for which you go to these stores, is that you can get these stores Dedicated counseling for growing cannabis.

Is it permissible to say "Cannabis" in an increase store?

The words "cannabis", "grass", "marijuana" or any other word that leaves no doubt about the nature of the tumor are strictly forbidden in the hydroponics stores.

This mutual disregard of the term "cannabis" and other similar terms calms the two sides, because just as the client fears the prohibition by law, the growing shops are not allowed to offer, advise, encourage or recommend anything related to cannabis cultivation. This disregard of the term does well for another important reason: professionalism. When the plant is treated as a plant, the whole atmosphere changes. And the atmosphere, as we know, also has a great impact on fruits.

So how can you get advice anyway? Suffice it to say that they are interested in a home tent, or a lamp suitable for growing at home, or for advice on growing. The store's employees have already been able to lead you away and identify themselves, according to questions, what you mean.

"Intelligence information" is unnecessary

It can therefore be said that in the various hydroponics stores there is an "unsigned agreement" between the sellers and the customers, in which it is clear to both parties that in the common interests of both, it is desirable not to mention unnecessary information that is not necessary for purely professional advice.

However, there are seldom cases where sellers (usually novice sellers) tend to be unprofessional and ask the customer "revealing" questions, so it is recommended that the customer be prepared to share only relevant information with the sellers.

for example:

It is clear to all that the precise geographical location of the tumor system is not important, so if you encounter the question associated with the location of the tumor, you can answer the general answer "in the north" / "south" / "center" and move on nonchalantly.

Remember: In all the "hydroponics stores" in Israel, you know why you came to them, so you do not have to be uncomfortable to "skip" elegantly on such and such questions. No one will judge you or look at you crooked. On the contrary, it is precisely a seller who insists on posing problematic questions is the one who is supposed to feel uncomfortable, since he risks his livelihood unnecessarily.

How to behave in a hydro-growth store?

How to behave in a hydro-growth store? Although it sounds like something to prepare for, the truth is just the opposite. A hydro-habitat store is like any other store or nursery, and so it should be seen.

However, there are a few more tips to consider. Please note that all these warnings are in order to maintain maximum security.
