When shopping for seeds you will have to look for the Breeder and the Genetics you want specifically. Different strains require different regimens and some are more difficult to grow then others.
What Temperatures are best?
- .Most plants grow best with temperatures between 70º - 75º F
- If temperatures run between 80º - 90º F then you will get undesired stretching or possibly stunted growth.
- Floor temperature is also a vital component to the entire process. If you have a cold floor it could affect the overall ambient temperature. Use foam padding or moving blankets for good insulation.
- Signs of high heat are leaves cupping.
What Humidity is best for my plant?
During the Vegetative state, between 50 - 75% to prevent mold and other ailments.
The Humidity is MOST important during flowing. 40% - 55%. If your humidity gets out of control during flowering it could result in "Bud Rot" which requires you to immediately remove the affected nodes and hope it doesn't spread to other nodes.
Depending on your environment, you may need to purchase a humidifier or dehumidifier to regulate your grow space.
There are so many options for grow lights, but we will only discuss LED options since they have a much higher safety rating and run MUCH cooler than other types of bulbs. Technology has come a LONG way in just the past few years and with high capacity LED' COB's you can get more bang for your buck and save money on the electricity bill each month.
Can I just do it all myself?
Yes. Many times, after a successful consultation our clients are armed with the information to successfully setup and maintain their own grow space. We can also consult about your nutrient strategies.
What "products" are used?
We do not sell any equipment, seeds or plants. We can direct you to a shopping list where you can purchase everything yourself. We do NOT sell any products.
What is "LST"
Low Stress Training. This is a method of tying or bending the plant to force the nodes to grown upwards instead of outwards.
What is Cloning?
Cloning is where you snip a small piece off of your plant and put it in it's own spot to grow roots. This will eventually grow into it's own plant thus extending and preserving the same genetics.
