To carry out a cannabis growing successfully is very important to be aware of every detail because these plants require certain conditions to develop properly and offer productive harvests.

One of the indispensable factors for the marijuana is the watering, for that reason, in an opportunity we want to speak to you about the different types to carry out it. So take note

Types of watering

In the cannabic world there are several types of watering, however, here we will present you some of them:

1) Manual watering

This method is quite basic. As its name suggests, manual watering is the type of watering done by the grower himself using a container or hose (without the use of automatic systems).

This form of watering allows you to have a more personalized treatment with each one of the plants; it is ideal for those who do not have many resources to install more systems that are complex.

The negative side of this system is that it requires more time to be dedicated to the growing than other watering methods. If you are a beginner, it can be much easier to overwater, which can be quite negative for the plants.

2) Automatic Watering

Automated watering as opposed to manual watering does not require you to stay on the slope too long. This system will activate depending on when you have programmed it and will take care of watering.

One of the advantages of this system is the speed and control of watering. On the other hand, some of the disadvantages of automatic watering are the higher cost and assembly, and the need accurately control the pH and EC of the water.

Nowadays you can choose different types of automatic watering. Here we present you 2 options that you can take into account:

– Drip watering

In this case, it is based on a system with a tank that, through a network of pipes, brings water to each plant through the dripper. With a timer and watering pump, you can program the right time to water and of course, for how long.

– Flood watering

Flood watering consists of adding a considerable amount of water to the soil so that it filters through the substrate and gradually reaches the roots of the marijuana.

Final considerations

Each of these types of watering offers you various advantages and disadvantages, which you should analyze before choosing a form of watering. Try to choose a type of watering that is in accordance with the type of growing you have.
