A. The best time to take clippings is during the vegetative stage to reduce stress and likely hood of inducing hermaphroditic tendencies or cause unwanted stretching. Though you can clone a plant all the way to the end of its life cycle which is called reverting from clone, it is harder and takes longer to clone and becomes vigorous the longer the plant has been flowering. The vegetative stage is any time 18-24 hours of light. There isn’t a big difference in time of day you actually take the clipping. Water your plants right before taking clones for best...
A. If you are indoors raise your lights up a bit higher, mist your plants with water before the lights come on and as they are going off. If you are outdoors use shade netting. Supplementing with small amounts of silica and or kelp have been known to help plants recover and adapt to heat better. Supplementing your atmosphere with CO2 helps plants adapt to hotter climates as well. The other thing you could add to the water while misting your plants is Epsom salt as it will help with any deficiencies that are usually created by hot conditions as little as 1/4 tea spoon per gallon works well some people suggest more, but if you are misting consistently then i’d go with smaller amounts, say if you are misting once a week then 1 teaspoon per gallon. Just don’t go overboard on trying to many things at once, the best thing to do is keep is simple and be patient tell the heat off the summer...
Q: Made my first trip from AZ to your store last week! completely satisfied with the quality! I’ve been thinking of starting my own little garden but have no real experience growing marijuana plants. Not sure where to begin. Could you suggest just a basic set up? Do you use filtered water for your plants? Thanks A: Thanks for the visit! For beginners I suggest getting two books that will make life easy. The first is George Cervantes Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower’s Bible and the Second is True Living Organics by The Rev. As far as equipment I suggest a 400 watt metal halide, if you can afford it I’d go with a digital ballast, but magnetic ballasts are fine too. Make sure you find good solid genetics to grow, its a very important factor in having success. Yes you will need to get at least a basic carbon filter, for simple and cheap you can get a RV carbon filter at a hardware store that will screw right on to a garden hose, or you can upgrade and find KDF 85 filters that not only remove chlorine but remove fluorides and chlorimides as well from city water which can be detrimental to organic grows. You can even get reverse osmosis filters which are a bit more expensive and you are using a lot of water in the filtering process, but its pure water. I suggest using high quality organic soil and nutrients such as the Fox Farm Happy Frog Line. The other thing if you can afford it I suggest buying a grow tent...
Q: I have only 1 plant female, of which I am growing for seeds. The buds are currently stenchy like strong lemon, ? best way to harvest for seeds? Outdoor in vegas, I am wondering if i should sacrifice my seed plan to endulge, seeds are now white solid, when to pick –Larry A: From Truck: Hello Larry, I would wait tell the seeds are dark and tiger striped. Another method is to pinch one or two between your fingers. If its hard they are good to go. If they squish or crush most likely not ready. The longer you weight the better the seeds will be. If you want to smoke it you got to separate the seeds, just like in the good ‘ol days of shwag weed. Your Friend,...
