the ideal setup would be a hoop house, outdoors with adiquate ventilation. soil tastes beter. everyone tells me that. you can taste the flavors going over the back of your throat and tongue on the exhale. some dispensaries ONLY want indoor/soil grown and hand trimmed buds. i guess the bigger the supply because of location, the more finicky the dispensaries get. IDK...out here ppl couldnt tell the diff. but i can.
yepyep. soiless is hydro usless your adding stuff that isnt inert(organic nutes or organic matierial)
but now that whereon the subject would you consider a drip system "hydro" it it does not recirculate the water or run constantly? a good comparison would be a lawn sprinkler on a timer.
you can defiantly tell the difference between the 2 types of bud danny, im out where we get the callie scraps and its all hydro shit. all chemicals, awesome looking but not the best tasting
I personally run coco in airpots and LOVE it. But every pic or article I've ever read on professional/commercial grow ops in CA and CO are all using some form of hydro, aero or both. And yes, the CA dispensaries charge less for soil then they do for dro. I think I want to try rockwool slabs in dutch trays next. Just don't know if I want it to be a drip system or a flood/drain system. I may also consider a hempy style grow. Hempy growers seem to really love their systems and produce excellent results.
I have grown same strains in DWC, CoCo, Soil and Hempy. Each strain reacts different in each type of medium. I believe its the growers job to find what best suits them and what they are comfortable with. As well as doing same strain grows in all mediums. That way you can achieve what it is your really after. Interesting point of views here! Keep it going.
If hydroponic weed tastes bad, or you dont get the flavors rolling, the hydro grower fugged up, end of story. Dirt takes longer, picks up all the flavors of the dirt, and anything added, cant be properly flushed without killing micro beasties, so maybe thats what the dirt smokers are leaning towards?
i grow for my head. i grow for taste. i grow in soil.
