Where to Begin?

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...

Growing Question

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.

Curing Marijuana to Smoke

Q: I have a plant that has produced flower that is crazy grapey, like a grape jolly rancher, after 10 days of dry time and a few days of curing and burping..  I am scared that it will lose the grape flavor in the cure process.  Any recommendations on how to better preserve or develop certain flavors during the cure process? A: Other than growing, curing is the most important step in getting good quality cannabis to smoke. Please know that relative humidity inside and outside the jar and how dry or not dry your bud is will greatly overall change each time and depending on the time of year and moment to moment weather patterns.   The best advice i can give is keep following your nose. The stems should snap before jarring to cure. More burping more often in the first 2 weeks of curing 3-4 times a day, 30minutes to a couple hours open depending on your feel for humidity and overall need to dry vs just let the bud breath and let out what ever has been off gassed in the curing process.  The second two weeks it can be once or twice a day.  After a month you should have fully cured bud.  Stored properly in a glass jar out of light the bud should be good for long term storage after 30 days.  Most weed is like a fine wine, cured for 3-6+ months you have something very special.  If it starts to smell like grass its too wet, pull it out and let it dry out more.  If it doesn’t smell or seems...
