If you’re growing in soil, you can transplant the Rockwool cubes directly into your new growing medium. Soil growers have a variety of choices when it comes to what to do next. You can transplant into plastic or fabric pots, place your plants into greenhouses or polytunnels, or plant them directly into garden beds.

The structural integrity of a Rockwool cube will also deteriorate after a single round of growth. As the thick and strong main roots develop, they’ll make holes in the cube, in turn making it less able to accommodate another set of roots in the future.

As you can see, Rockwool cubes offer growers plenty of benefits, from improved aeration to pathogen prevention. However, more environmentally concerned growers choose to avoid them because of how they’re made, and what they’re made of.

Top Tips for Using Rockwool

3. After 24 hours have passed, fill up another bowl with 1 litre of water. Add your organic nutrient solution, fungi, and bacteria to the bowl in the quantities stated on the instructions. Soak the blocks in the solution for another two hours.

This nutrient supports the growth of every plant cell, aids in energy transfer and photosynthesis, and plays an especially important role during the flowering phase. As a bonus, basalt rock dust also helps to absorb large quantities of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Rockwool harnesses the power of natural stone to produce a fluffy and aerated growing medium ideal for cannabis growing. This material drains well, supports root development, and arrives in a cuboid shape that is easy to transplant into hydroponic or soil-based systems.

Although they take a long time to break down, growers can shred their used blocks down as finely as possible and throw them onto the compost pile. Over time, key elements within basalt rock will leach into the compost and add a nutritional kick to your future soil.

Depending on how hot it is (and other factors) you may need to water your cubes 1-4 times a day. Use the Ph adjusted water when doing so (that’s why I had you save the leftovers from step 2). If you already threw that water out, go make another batch of Ph adjusted water and keep it in a separate bottle or container for watering. Note: Do not over water, in fact while some say to water 1-4 times a day, I did it only once a day when I got home after work.

Using either a PH test kit or a Ph meter, determine the Ph of the water. Water comes out pretty alkaline, usually around 7.4, so you will need to acidify it a little bit to bring that Ph down to the desired level. Aim for as close to a Ph of 5.5-6 as you can get.

About 2-3 weeks after germinating, you are ready to transplant these babies into the hydroponic system of your choice. A good rule of thumb to go by is that you want to transplant them once the first roots begin poking out of the Rockwool cube. Don’t wait too long though, as eventually the roots will begin tangling around the cube since it is their only source of water. You want to catch them right as they pop out, so that when you transfer them into your hydro system the roots will grow down into the system, and not just try to feed off the Rockwool cube alone.

Important: Do not let the PH of the water go below 5. A Ph this low will damage the fibers of the Rockwool Cube

Take 1-2 seeds and insert them carefully into the holes. Use a toothpick or similar object to push them down to the bottom, as you want them to be at the bottom of that hole. Rip or push a piece of the Rockwool over the hole (you don’t have to fill it completely), so that the seed can germinate in a dark moist environment.

Get a bowl or some other container that is big enough to fill with water and have room left for your Rockwool cubes. Your average salad bowl will work fine for 3 Rockwool cubes, if you are planning on doing more than you will need a larger container.

In this lesson, we will learn how to start your own seed with Rockwool Cubes. Below is a detailed guide to success with Rockwool, and a step-by-step video tutorial can be found at the bottom of the page.

On top of that, Rockwool is like asbestos, you don’t want to be squeezing it or breathing it or generally touching it any more than you need to. Here is a good article on some of the health concerns of Rockwool. I use it because it is what works best, but be cognizant to the fact that it is a potentially dangerous substance to be making contact with so don’t do anything more than you need to with it.
