Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"I was already smoking it and I love to tinker around with shit so I thought - why not?"
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"Honestly? Everything! These plants are so amazing but can also be very picky. In order to get quality buds there are a lot of factors that came into play. I am still learning about all of those factors and how they play into the big picture."
What makes growing rewarding? "Knowing that you took something from a tiny seed all the way to a beast of a plant (hopefully). Just like building anything else, it's awesome to look back at it and say "I did this myself with my own hands". Also smoking the end result is a nice perk "
Favorite strain to cultivate? "Really anything sativa which makes things interesting when you grow indoors."
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there? "Don't stress out about your grow and keep it simple. Unless you run a business or are a caretaker you are probably just growing for yourself so it's not the end of the world if you have a plant die or if your yield sucks. Take it as a chance to learn and use that in your next grow. Also, keep grow logs of everything you do. Us stoners tend to forget things."
