Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"A long story short... not all dealers are good people. Some use the monies to better the community but most to nearly all dealers are greedy money hungry criminals that will sell one cannabis that does more harm than good. Being sprayed with glass to add weight. All sorts, even spraying cannabis with hard addictive drugs. The idea of growing my own and knowing what's going into my plants, what pesticides have been used and the idea of not passing my money over to an organized criminal business that pays nothing into society. That was enough for me to think why I haven't done it sooner."
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"My biggest obstacles to overcome were sound and heat. Keeping it stealth is key in the UK... LEDs over HID and HPS as LEDs run a lot cooler. As for sound, unfortunately, I just ended up chucking money at it, I found and S&P fan that claims to be 12db less than other fans in its power range also having to spend out on an acoustic exhaust and acoustic ducting."
What makes growing rewarding?
"The most rewarding part is the fact that it's grown by yourself..."
Favorite strain to cultivate?
"My 1st plant has still got to be my favorite. She was a super silver haze from a seed I got from a friend. Even tho I butchered the grow, it only made me learn for future grows."
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there?
"I've learned that with any problem the best way is to go back to basics, checking Ph is to be the first step... What's going in and what's coming out."
