Why are you passionate about growing your own herbs? "The cannabis in Sweden was really bad when I started smoking probably 10-12 years ago. After a couple of years of smoking, I started to read a bit about growing my own, so I bought a tent, CFL light, auto pot with coco and nutrients from BioCanna. My first grows were really trial and error, sure I didn't get the best cannabis but I learned tons of stuff."
Were there any obstacles that you had to overcome?
"When I started to grow cannabis I had some difficulties to do daily check ups with the plant. Probably just because my work takes a lot of time from me. But after a couple of grows, I got a hang around it. Otherwise, I think that my small grows have been going really good at least those that I got to harvest before to cops shows up at my doorstep. Since I only have been growing a couple of plants at the same time. I think that it what have been saving me from pests and diseases. And the regular checkups every day."
What makes growing rewarding? "I really love to see that small seed grow to a big and healthy plant. So that's most rewarding for me, whether it's cannabis or flowers or veggies. As long as I can grow, I'm a happy dude."
Favorite strain to cultivate? "Hard to answer but if I have to pick one it would be Northern Lights #5, it was the first that I smoked and grew. Love that sweet smell and earthy tones. Yeah, I'm a sucker for indicas and almost always smoke indica strains."
What growing tips do you have for the aspiring seedlings out there? "Read and watch a lot. And let the first grows be trial and error. It worked for me, and ask questions, there are a lot of excellent growers out in the world that are happy to answer your questions."
