Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"I’ve loved weed since the day my friend Lou past me a hit from his momma's bowl years ago. The vibes and people for the most part surrounding the plant are great, but the bullshit with legality pushes people into a shady market. I've been robbed multiple times, cheated out of my money with pebbles in the bag or soaked weed that smelled funny, even disgusting bud covered in bugs and mold. I’d like to say I found someone reliable but they are even sketchy from time to time. In an effort to drive those affiliates away and gain a different perspective on the plant I decided to start my first grow!"
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"Watering and feeding habits."
What makes growing rewarding?
"Seeing, smelling and smoking the end product after waiting so long!"
Favorite strain to cultivate?
"I personally have only grown bag seed so far. Would really love to get my hands on some Cheese, I miss the smell! "
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there?
"Yeah just this one, I’m learning this still - “less is more” concerning plant food, you can always give them more if needed later on."
