The topsy-turvy is a growing system that is meant to suspend the plant upside down. Though the idea is novel for tomatoes, it hasn't been proven to make them grow any faster.

What is hydroponics and how does it relate to growing cannabis?

Hydroponics is the art of growing plants without soil. When most people think of growing marijuana hydroponically, they think of growing their plants with their roots suspended directly into water with absolutely no growing medium. However, this is only one type of hydroponic growing. There are several variations including growing your plant in a soilless medium such as perlite/coco coir and then watering your plants every day, which is not very different from growing in soil.

When talking about growing weed, what is a grow medium/growing medium?

A growth medium or grow medium is whatever it is that you're growing your cannabis in, whether that substance is soil, perlite, coco coir, rockwool, water, etc.

Your marijuana plant will thrive as long as the roots have room to grow and have consistent access to fresh water, oxygen, and the proper nutrients. There are a variety of ways to satisfy all these needs of a weed plant while growing.
