Growing cannabis in soil or coco coir is a personal choice, each with its own set of pros and cons.Â Here are the most important points to consider when choosing your cannabis grow medium.
Growing Cannabis in Soil
Soil Pros: Growing cannabis in soil has benefits such as the added nutrients that come with most quality growing soils. Soils can come premixed with nutrients that support your plant life for the first 30 days or so, which eliminates the need to buy, mix and add nutrients allowing you to only add water for the beginning of your plantâ€™s life. Soil can add structure, boost microbial life, improve acidity, and hold water well. Growing in soil can reduce the amount of time needed to spend in your garden with watering and adding nutrients.
Soil Cons: It can be easy to overwater when growing in soil and this drastically reduces aeration at the root zone, which can damage plants and hinder growth.
Growing Cannabis in Coco Coir
Coco Coir Pros: Growing in coco coir is a great choice if your goal is overall growth and yield.Â Growing cannabis in coco coir provides greater aeration at the root zone which gives the potential for greater yield and more vigorous growth. Greater aeration is probably the biggest reason that people choose to grow in coco coir over soil.
Coco Coir Cons: You will need to mix more nutrients when growing cannabis in coco coir and spend more time watering and flushing your grow medium.
