Growing Stories with @growingnub
⚡️A Q&A session with your friendly neighborhood gardener
🌱Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"Necessity. I've been dealing with chronic testicular pain for the past 10+ year's, and recently I lost my job due to an unknown condition I have, that is now taking my vision away."
🌱Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"So far it was trying to find the best way for me to start growing, due to the limitations I have with my available space. And then Ph. Ph is a royal pita for me."
🌱What makes growing rewarding?
"It's almost like therapy for me. It gives me something to do that will eventually save me money. I love science, and trying to keep everything in order keeps my mind turning. Even though I'm new to growing, I've begun experimenting."
🌱Favorite strain to cultivate?
"Well, since thus is my first grow, I cannot really say. Currently I am growing some purple urkle in dwc and euphoria in a dwc aeroponics combo bucket."
🌱What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there?
"Research, research, research. There are a lot of great YouTube and IG growers out there. Watch videos that you may not think are viable to you. I thought I was doing something really wrong with the purple urkle, until I saw a video that the tuber was thanking a viewer for the tip they posted about it going slow in vegetation."
