ANCIENT OG GROWN TO PERFECTION
Many people believe that growing weed should be as easy as, you know, growing weeds. Some people may believe that gardening on a large scale is a breezy delight but the elements are against the uneducated grower. Legalization has allowed for more and more novice growers to come to the stage every day and with it a proliferation of garden diseases. Pests and molds are becoming resilient quickly and growers are having to employ 4 or more methods to maintain a productive growing environment. We’ve been up and down on this growing roller coaster of love. Based on our experience here are some of the best practices for steady cannabis cultivation.
Say Yes to Quality
It’s a no brainer. You want high quality weed. You need high quality products and services. Exotic genetics, resilient phenotypes, superior nutrients, the most luminous lighting. Treat your weed like you would treat your lover. Growing weed is a long term relationship, make it healthy by showing you truly care!
Say Yes to Education
Always take the time to educate yourself on the products and services available to you on and off the market. Ask online growing communities and industry experts what they use. Buy the books written by your favorite cultivation superstars. Information is only a click away most days. Empower yourself with knowledge.
Say No to Strangers
Root aphids, powdery mildew, and russet mites have all been introduced into our garden from 3rd party growers. Some of which are growers we know and love too! So when in doubt do yourself a favor. If you crave a strain, grow it from seed. Take it a step further and consider the fact that every time you go into to a grow store that those little monsters are probably riding on a bag of your favorite nutrients. Eeeek!
Say No to Sloth
Whether you’re managing a 10 plant or 100 plant operation, the deadliest sin of cannabis gardening is sloth. Cannabis plants need you just as much as you need them. If you are new to growing you will have to understand that you truly have to dedicate yourself every day and every night to your garden. Clean out the trash, check every plant in multiple places for pests, water regularly, check on them often, and work hard.
