Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"Wanting to be able to make my own medicine, with the knowledge of what went into producing it: growing environment, nutrients, handling."
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"The environment, it continues to be the biggest challenge. Especially in a climate like Maine where the weather is constantly changing, therefore the grow environment is under constant monitoring. The perfect lighting option is constantly changing as well."
What makes growing rewarding?
"Seeing that all your hard work has created something that can heal an ailment. A reward is also hearing others say it has helped them!"
Favorite strain to cultivate?
"Right now, I am enjoying SexBud by Female Seeds. Growing it isn’t very hard, it’s got thin leaves and a structure that is perfect for light penetration but not too lanky. For me, it’s a very uplifting and motivating high. It will have you dancing through the aisles of a store, and even lives up to its name in the right situation."
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there?
"I often tell people that there is nothing wrong with experimenting. Try different lights, soils, nutrients, and even methods of growing. Try transplanting, try cloning, if you want. Keep track of milestones so you know what methods work best for your environment. Not everyone gets the same results, so do what works best for you!"
