Growing weed in tower garden

Here you can see the reservoir lid. Tower Tonic A and B were the only nutrients used. We can see a deficiency here at the end, but the plants stayed green until the last 10 days with no signs of problem and therefore no significant impact on yield.

Here’s a close up of some frosty flowers.

It is possible to grow your own medicinal Cannabis in many ways. Most of the time it involves complicated indoor gardens or back breaking work with soil outdoors. The Tower Garden offers an easy alternative to tradition growing methods. Here is the official what and why:

Most varieties of Cannabis are photoperiod sensitive. It flowers according to the length of nighttime darkness it receives. Using these photoperiod varieties would be nearly impossible in the Tower Garden outside as they would get to unmanageable size very quickly. If you can control the light cycle, initiating a 12/12 light cycle from seed or cutting would work with C. indica and shorter hybrids. But for outdoor and greenhouse growing dwarf autoflowering strains are the perfect choice.

“Tower Garden® is a state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing system. It’s perfect for rooftops, patios, balconies, terraces—just about any relatively sunny place outside. Using aeroponics and our specially formulated Tower Tonic plant food, it grows almost any vegetable, herb, or flower—and many fruits—in less time than it takes in soil.”

This system will work for Cannabis with full sun exposure outside or even better in a greenhouse. We don’t need soil; just add water and Tower Tonic or other hydroponic nutrients. We eliminate the trouble of setting up an indoor garden and the labor of using potting soil. And that part about “almost any vegetable, herb, or flower” applies to your medicine.

I would highly recommend this system for inexperienced users or those wishing to simplify their methods.

For our trial run with the Tower Garden we used a variety named Grasshopper. This strain typically yields around 14g per plant achieving lofty heights of 18 inches; sometimes much less, rarely a little more. Its small size makes for good stealthy plantings and working into crowded spaces. Life cycle completes in 60 days from seed to mature flowers. The flowers are frosty and have a minty earthy smell. Here are some pictures from the end of the trial.

And another showing flower development down the stem. Most filled out the majority of their height this way.

However, there is a new method for aeroponic cannabis cultivation available: Tower Garden. Tower Garden is a subsidiary of Juice Plus. This vertical aeroponic garden is expanding cannabis cultivation opportunities one garden at a time. Tower Garden is well known in the world of vegetable gardening as a way to simplify gardening, while at the same time reduce the cost of growing at home. The patented growing system recycles 100% of its water and nutrients, and uses 90% less water and space as traditional soil gardening. It can be used both indoors and outdoors.

“The great thing about the Tower Garden is how easy it is to use,” she explains. “Especially for people with disabilities, or mobility challenges, this could be a new way for medical marijuana patients to get their medicine.”

Erika Ashbaug, a Tower Garden franchise owner in Seattle says, “I first had the idea to sell Tower Gardens when I saw how much they help people grow vegetables. I thought, ‘why couldn’t we do the same thing with cannabis?’”
