Stinkbud System

The Stinkbud System

The Stinkbud System has been invented by a generous and creative fellow who calls himself Stinkbud. He has made appearances in High Times Magazine and plenty of newsletters for his innovative, yet very simple, home growing style.

This one-of-a-kind Aeroponic/Hydroponic growing method allows even beginner growers to harvest high-quality buds, with optimal taste and smell. But it doesn’t stop there, this system allows you to harvest half a kilo every 3 weeks!

Growers can now ease the expenses of their grow system, all whilst being able to harvest way more than bargained for with each wonderful marijuana plant. Stinkbud’s system has the highest success rate, and you are guaranteed results if you follow the method diligently.

What Is The Stinkbud System?

The Stinkbud system is a unique way to grow indoors. It’s quickly gaining popularity, as it allows growers the opportunity to harvest every three weeks after their plants reach the budding stage. Using a simple homemade indoor setup called The Stinkbud Junior, you can set your plants up and begin this process.

Your buds will grow in a way they never have before, producing trichomes (Crystal THC) that are rich, and buds that are delicious. The design is easy to use and understand, making it a pleasant tool to revolutionize the quality of your harvests and the amount you can yield from each plant.

How Is The Stinkbud System Different From Other Growing Systems?


  • 3 separate Aero/NFT flower systems allow one to run a full  9 week flower cycle, allowing the buds to fully ripen. You will also be able to work with strains that are stronger Sativias. 
  • Using pure organic nutrients, you will be provided with the sweetest tasting buds that you have ever had.
  • You can grow 10 different strains, without needing to have 10 mother plants included in your grow.
  • This system is all Aeroponic/Hydroponic (Aero/NFT). Each one uses the same pumps and sprayers, with no other medium used. Your plants will practically be growing in air.
  • The cloner has a 100% success rate, making it the best and easiest way to take cuttings.
  • If you flush your plants at least every 2 weeks, you will have a product that burns and tastes clean.
  • The system uses a 3 part cycle. Your cannabis plants will stay 3 weeks in the cloner, then 3 weeks in a veg system, and then moved to flower for around 9 weeks.
  • Anybody can accomplish a remarkable grow easily with the Stinkbud System. If you measure your mediums well, you will have prime buds – similar to baking a cake, getting your measurements correct enhances your final product.

Stinkbud’s Aeroponic/Hydroponic Way of Growing

Now that we can see all the benefits of Stinkbud’s unique system, let’s dive into a way for us to enjoy this method of growing.

Your Stinkbud system can fit in a 4x4x7 grow tent.

How to make your fence post assembly:

  1. purchase a 72 inch fence post, cut the fence post in half at 36 inches using a cutting saw.
  2. Make a mark at the 3 inch mark from the end of your fence post.
  3. You will be making a mark every 13 and a half inches on your fence post, for you to make your holes.
  4. Use a 2 inch hole saw to drill the holes.
  5. Use your saw to cut a half inch slit at the drainage end of your fence post. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat up this end where you’ve made the slit.
  6. Once the slit is warm, use a pair of pliers and bend it down to make a flap.
  7. Using Epoxy glue, make a nice bead in your endcap, applying it all around the inside generously.
  8. Apply your end cap to the end of your fence post without the flap, and then clean it all up.
  9. Using your hole saw, cut a semi-hole at the end of your drain side to make room for your pipe.

How to make your spray assembly:

  1.  Purchase 2 half inch PVC pipes approximately a meter long
  2. Mark for your sprayers. Mark one all the way at the end cap, and then make a mark 4 inches from there for your first set, then 9 and a half inches for your second, and then mark for 4 inches again for the next, 9 inches for the one after (Follow this pattern).
  3. Using a drill, make your holes at each of the points you have marked.
  4. Screw in your sprayers to each hole with a pair of pliers (This is easy, as they are made to be screwed in)
  5. Attach half inch elbows at the end of each pipe.
  6. Attach a 3 inch half inch pipe to each elbow, and then connect to a T pipe.
  7. Connect another T pipe to the other, but make this one face down.
  8. Attach a valve assembly at the end of your second T.
  9. The downspout of your valve assembly will then connect to half-inch threaded adapter, that will then be easily plugged into a pump.
  10. Preferably use EZ-Clone sprayers for everything, and run a 396 GPH pump.

To make your reservoir lid, you will need to carefully watch Stinkbud’s video for the exact measurements. He will also then show you how to connect your fence post assembly successfully to your sprayer assembly.

How to Start


You will want to start with cuttings, as this is easier than using a plant straight from the seed.

Select a lower branch from one of your cannabis plants that are vegging. You will want lower branches as they contain the correct hormones for the rooting to start. You can cut with a razor blade or scissors. Take each cutting and place them in Neoprene sleeves, and then into 2 inch net pots.

The clone system uses only tap water, and the cloner should be set up on a timer for 1 min on and 5 mins off. The clone system is under 24 inches, 2-light, HO fluorescents. Use an 18 gal. Rubbermaid Roughneck container for your clone unit, as all others will leak.

After your plants have rooted successfully, move them into your homemade Stinkbud System for the growth phases.

Use only organic soil, with extra nutrients added to increase the flavor and effect of your yield.

To have your marijuana budding, set your lights for 12 hours on, 12 hours off for a couple of months. You will then have your first round of fully flowering cannabis beauties.

To continue harvesting every 3 weeks, add a rack to your original setup, and within that short phase, you will have new fully formed and matured buds.

Planting the seeds is your very first step forward in your journey to grow marijuana. You’ve decided which strain and how you want to grow it, now it’s time to begin.

There are three must-haves for all successful germinating seeds: water, a good location and warm temperature. The process differs from person to person, and gardening these plants is never a set-in-stone system, but rather something you will master with experience.

Here are a few of the tried and tested ways for you to get your seeds sprouting :

Place directly into your soil

Bury your seeds only a two-three centimetres into the soil, this is a nice way to minimize any shock to your seedling. Make sure the pot plant or spot you have chosen is in a warm area, and water it often to increase your chances of success.

Wet tissue paper

Wrap your seeds up in wet tissue and place them on a plate. You can then easily control the germination process and guarantee results by placing the plate in a warm and dark location. You can also add another plate on top of your station, to increase moisture. Within a few days or a week, you will have seeds that have sprouted happily.

Soak in water

Place your seeds in a tray of enzyme enriched water and place them in the sun. Then, simply wait until you see the peep of the roots breaking through.

How To Grow Indoor Weed

Image by @indoor_cannabis_oficial

An indoor grow is all about turning your plant’s environment into the best imitation of mother nature as possible. One of the biggest upsides of deciding to cultivate indoors is that it gives you the opportunity to create the most advantageous conditions for your marijuana and the option to grow all year round.

You will be able to manage the day/night cycles, humidity, water consumption, temperature, fertilisation of the soil, PH balance, provide constant fresh air and keep your plants safe from insects or unfavourable weather situations. It truly is a fun way to add a personal touch to your experience and to the outcome of your buds.

There are two main indoor growth techniques.

A Grow Room

To get started, you will need to have set up a grow room that meets the needs of your cannabis. This room must have proper ventilation to keep the air fresh, and too keep the temperature of your room from getting too hot or humid. You can invest in a dehumidifier if you want to make extra certain your plants won’t be at risk of bud rot.

Next, you will want to purchase the correct lighting to make sure that your plants have sufficient supply for photosynthesis. You can choose between LED (Light Emitting Diode), CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light), or HPS (High-Pressure Sodium) light g: the key factors are that you want to keep your whole room lit, whilst keeping the heat at a modest temperature.

For the best results, set your lights for an eighteen-hour day and a six-hour night. Try to plan your lighting to avoid peak hours, this will help lessen the cost of running your grow room.

A Grow Cupboard

You can purchase fully equipped and professional grow cupboards online.  This is a more expensive route but will come with fans, lights, timers, flower chambers, veg chambers and carbon filters. Although this might cost more initially, you will gain will make up for your outlay when it comes to harvesting time.

Remember, that whether indoor or outdoor, your plants will yield healthier buds and grow stronger in PH balanced organic soil.


Growing Weed Outdoors

Image by @marijuana.plant

Easy, cost-effective and unlimited options are at your disposal when choosing to grow outdoor weed. You will be able to grow 1 – 2 fully matured crops a year, however, it is best to stick with one crop for those of you who just beginning to take on the activity of an outdoor grow.

Place straw, pine needles, chicken poo or nutrient mixes onto your soil to help nourish your plant at its roots. A plant that is grown directly in the ground will have all the necessary space for root growth, and you will be able to grow bigger plants than you could if you had gone for indoor.

You will need to plant your seeds during the Spring or Summer cycles, when the sun’s exposure is at a maximum. Watch that your plants are reasonably protected from harsh direct sunlight during the sprouting phase, as this is when your marijuana is most sensitive.

After your plant has established itself, you can allow more sunlight to reach it as this will assist your cannabis to grow most beautifully during the vegetation phase. As the days start to shorten, your plants will come into their budding phase and the fresh aromas will sweep along your garden.

You will need to increase the amount of water given at this time, as budding marijuana requires more to quench its thirst and to support the abundant growth.

To keep your cannabis safe from insects, you can make a variety of all natural sprays to keep the pests at bay. Do not use ingredients that have a strong scent or flavour, because your plants absorb it into the buds and you will affect the overall taste. A few good and safe solutions are cinnamon oil, peppermint oil, and clove oil.
