Last updated: June 1st, 2016

Growing medical marijuana using hydroponic growing techniques has its perks and downfalls, including:


  • Much bigger yields than the previous methods.
  • Cleaner because no soil is used.


  • Costs a lot more because it requires troughs, pumps, and reservoirs to hold the water/fertilizer mixture.
  • Requires a lot more labor. You will need to monitor pH and nutrient levels to make sure they stay within proper limits.
  • It takes more equipment. Therefore it may take more room.
