marijuana seeds for fish

Cons

Final Thoughts

However, in most cases, the seeds won’t be detected. To guarantee this, most seed bank companies offer stealth shipping for customers worried about interception. It’s a discreet way of shipping orders where seeds are placed inside some ordinary objects like DVD cases before shipping; hence the package doesn’t raise suspicion.

Pros

The company stocks specific categories and many award-winning seeds, including products for growing at high-altitude and mold-resistant strains.

Cons

Cons

Some fish need warmer water than others, so you may need to invest in a water heater or be sure your setup is in a warm place. Some fish are also bigger than others or more difficult to maintain, requiring more labor or money.

Then you’ll need to create a media bed for the plants. Some growers use one big flood tray for a number of plants, and some use individual pots, as in the graphic above.

The easiest way to start an aquaponic setup is to repurpose an old fish tank and pump. Be sure to dechlorinate the water and allow it to cycle for 4-6 weeks before adding any fish.

Advantages of growing weed with aquaponics

Here are types of fish most commonly found in aquaponic setups because of their low maintenance and versatility:

Some considerations before choosing fish for your aquaponic setup:

The primary nutrient produced from fish waste is nitrogen with trace amounts of other minerals. Because of this, basic aquaponic systems are great for vegetative growth, but you’ll need to add additional nutrients like phosphorus and potassium for flowering. This can also be remedied with a double-root zone.

Growing weed in a hydroponic setup can be challenging enough, and growing in an aquaponic setup is even more difficult. Growing with aquaponics is not recommended for first-time growers.

Aquaponics is not for everyone. For the beginner grower or those with little experience of hydroponic cultivation, it’s not advisable to dive straight in. Soil growers will certainly appreciate the potential, but won’t necessarily possess the hands-on experience either. Let alone know anything about fish farming. Even practised hydro growers will need to brush up on organics and quit relying on chemical fertilisers. Personal research and study will be essential to build up a knowledge base.

Over time, as you become more familiar with the day to day work and gain hands-on experience you will eventually dial in the system. Less and less supplemental fertilisers are required and the system becomes virtually fully automated.

THE BENEFITS OF AQUAPONICS

In ordinary decent stoner terms, aquaponics can be defined as the combination of hydroponics and fish farming. Instead of a grow operation, you are essentially creating a kind of cannabis “Bio-Dome”. The whole system is self-sustaining. Fish waste feeds the cannabis plants, with the root zone acting as a biological filter to clean the water. Thus forming a natural animal-plant symbiotic relationship. An aquaponics system can be created indoors or outdoors.

No other known method of cannabis cultivation can produce as much bud with as few resources. Essentially aquaponics checks all the boxes. Mastery of aquaponics is the zero point of cannabis cultivation.

If you already have a hydroponics setup and some experience under your belt, then you’re already halfway there. A standard small-scale hydro home grower can make the transition with low start-up cost. Custom kits, that convert a typical 50l aquarium into self-sustaining systems can be found online.

The obvious benefits for the conventional hydro grower to convert to aquaponics are you already have most of the cultivation experience you need and making the switch doesn’t cost much. Organic growers will naturally be attracted to aquaponics. With good reason, because this it is a 100% natural cultivation style, that functions independently of chemical fertilisers.
