Hydroponics is a gardening method where soil is not required. Here, plants are grown with the help of growing medium like rockwool, volcanic rock or coco coir.

Since they first appeared, I have wanted a 90 µ bag, but I knew my old bags would eventually wear out and I would need a new set. That day finally came and I ordered a new eight-piece one gallon set from Aqua Lab Technologies. Unlike other places I have ordered from in the past, the bags were in my hands in four days so I think we cleared up where to order from in the future.

Here’s an easy, environmentally friendly method for breeding feminized seeds.

Story by Soma Creating feminized cannabis seeds is an art. Just like art, there are a few different methods of application. I have used gibberellic acid, pH stress, light stress, and fertilizer stress to force my female plants to make seeds.

DNA Genetics started out growing in the late 80's in our home town of Hollywood, or as we say, Hollyweed, California... We would collect seeds from friends, family and, of couse, those rare bag seeds from the best medicine we could get at the time. Being in California means we had lots of original and exotic herbs to choose from and to work with over the years.

Cloning Cannabis Plants

Many novice growers ask themselves "should I start from seed or should I grow some marijuana clones?" It's a good question, and one that deserves serious consideration.

Marijuana Lights

Marijuana lighting systems allow you to extend the growing season by providing your plants with an indoor equivalent to sunlight. This is a great advantage for those of you who appreciate having a year-round supply of fresh flowers, veggies and herbs. Artificial lighting is also a great way to jump-start spring by starting your seedlings months ahead of the last frost. There are three main types of horticultural lighting systems useful for marijuana.

Unmarked vials, confused cultivators, self-appointed regulators - the messy side of marijuana horticulture

Pesticides not meant for use on consumable crops are available in “grow” shops throughout the Bay Area – a bustling market in which toxic substances are sold over the counter in unmarked vials.

A Bay Citizen reporter was able to purchase substances identified by vendors as the pesticides Avid and Floramite at hydroponic gardening centers in San Francisco and Berkeley. The reporter was offered a quart container of Avid at another Berkeley store for $400.

Three other grow shops said they did not carry the pesticides; two noted it would be illegal to do so.

CANNABIS CULTURE - A long time ago in a growroom far, far away there worked a humble farmer.

I grew my fruits and sold them to locals and everything was good. I added C02 and my harvest went through the roof. I was pulling down 60-70 zips every 60 days using a three-room set up.

Our correspondents from around the world weigh in on this year’s bumper crop of buds. Take a tour of the best pot on the planet with our esteemed team of cannabis researchers, who have scoured the globe in search of great ganja.

These days, the horticulture of cannabis is so completely under the control of humans that the plant tends to lead an unnatural life cycle and rarely has the chance to grow freely in the wild. It is typically grown indoors, where the males are killed and the females are cut down in their prime – just before having the chance to reproduce. In the Western world, where cannabis is outlawed and its value makes the plant highly coveted, the chance to grow it in the wild is next to impossible.
