Hydroponics Stores can give you all of the items you would need to grow your own medicine with the exception of seed or clones. There is a wide variety of methods, medias, nutrients and many other items that go into growing healthy plants. It is recommended that you talk with your local Hydroponics Retailer with what they might suggest.
We suggest that you find a store which is open to discussing Medical Marijuana and do what they can to assure you are successful at growing. Unfortunately, although legal at a state level, some Hydroponics Stores are still not open to discussing your needs. The knowledge you receive from a Hydroponics Store that is willing to assist you in growing medication is invaluable. This can literally save you a small fortune in the long run. Should you elect not to attempt growing your own medicine you can always contact a local Dispensary as we have suggested.
Expect to pay about $500.00 for a small, hydroponic medical marijuana 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 garden (5 to 10 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 items.
After a few crops (you will make mistakes at the beginning), your product will be better (if the seeds or clones you used were good) than anything that you would normally buy, at a fraction of the cost. If you do things properly, you will get about 1 to 2 ounces of premium marijuana per plant every 3 to 4 months. You won't have to deal with people that you might not trust, and your medicine will be clean and healthy as can be.
What is Hydroponics:
Hydroponics is simply growing plants in something other than soil and supplying all of the nutrition the plants need through the nutrient solution. Most growers utilize hydroponics indoors by creating an environment optimal for plant growth. Having the right combination of light, temperature, water, CO2, oxygen, pH and nutrients is essential. Finding a local or online store that has a superior selection of hydroponics supplies and grow lights can help you achieve maximum results.
