Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs?
"Seeing other great growers on YouTube and Instagram really inspired me to start growing myself. There are so many great growers out there giving out great advice. Go find those that inspire you too! "
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"The curing after the growing has been difficult to get perfect, but it is just as important as the grow itself. Just like a nice dry-aged steak, there is no rushing, it takes time, so be patient."
What makes growing rewarding?
"Getting to experience the fruit of your own labor is very satisfying. Growing up, strain selection was extremely limited and usually poor quality, so being able to have both variety and quality is also great."
Favorite strain to cultivate?
"Easiest strain I've grown so far is White Widow. Very vigorous growth and can handle a lot of plant training. In contrast, Jack Herer was one of the more difficult strains to grow, less vigorous growth, and more sensitive to nutrients, but the quality of the final product was the best I've ever had. Hopefully, I can find a happy middle ground eventually."
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there?
"Do not be afraid to train your plants. This plant is extremely resilient and has bounced back from everything I have ever done to it. Topping will allow you to have multiple beautiful colas instead of just a X-mas tree. Bending will allow you to shape the canopy evenly. There are many other training methods such as super-cropping, low-stress training (LST), FIMing, etc. Don't worry, duct tape can mend almost anything. Watch some YouTube and try it out! "
