Today podcast was one that I’m particularly proud of because the person that was asking most of the questions during the podcast is an individual that’s seeking to learn how to grow cannabis not necessarily for himself but for his family members. During this podcast, I’ll introduce you to Edward, who’s the individual that was asking most of the growing questions and Jack from (@jackgreenstalk). I noticed Edward shared one of my podcast on Reddit and I reached out to him to say thank you. We got to talking, and Edward had some questions about growing. I could have answered his questions, but I felt Jack was best suited to answer his beginning growing questions. Edward provided the Cheap Home Grow Nation was a downloaded PDF file you can download on the website (URL below). This was a 2hr discussion, so I opted to break it down into two different podcasts. If your a beginner or even experienced cannabis grower and would like to come on the CHG podcast, please reach out to me and send me a DM. Let me know what you think about the podcast in the comments below.
On today’s show, I have Macky from Percys Grow Room and he comes on the show today to talk about the differences between DWC and growing organically. He’s talking about the pros and cons of growing in each medium but feels growing organically is the best and easiest choice for any home grower. He’s been growing for many years in the UK and ultimately made the switch to organic because the quality of medicine produced is 10x better than growing in hydro. What do you think? Do you agree or disagree with his general premise? Please let me know how you feel. Please remember to press “subscribe” and enjoy the show.
I had the pleasure of talking to Maxx from CannaCreate.4G on Instagram. Maxx and I talked about which lights I should use to effectively grow my own cannabis. I understand lighting is a very subjective subject in the world of cannabis growing but with Maxx’s electrically engineering background I figured he would he would be the perfect person to ask about which light I should use to grow my own. During the conversation, Maxx offers quality insight on what to look for and what to say away from while searching for your next grow light. Please feel free to check him out @Cannacreate.4g on Instagram.
I invited Dr. Mj Coco from CocoForCannabis back on the Cheap Home Grow podcast recently to talk about his Spring Auto Flower Challenge. As a grower that’s currently growing an autoflower, I feel this challenge is going to benefit anyone that’s thinking about growing autos. To this day, autoflowers have a bad reputation because of there low THC count, your inability to clone and they’re flower on their schedule, not yours. However, in the past few years, genetics has become a lot more stable. As the cannabis growing community expands I feel autoflowers are getting adopted by newer growers like myself. I feel their a great “starter” for anyone that hasn’t grown before or is looking for a challenge. During this podcast episode, I’ll introduce you to three different growers that have different growing styles but all are looking forward to the challenge. I look forward to seeing you there. Please visit CocoForCannabis to signup for the challenge.
What is the Spring Auto Flower Challenge
The SAFC is not a competition, it is a collaboration! The SAFC is all about seeing and sharing different methods and techniques, comparing different lights and media, asking questions and learning from each other! Growers will be invited to keep a journal of their grow and participate in group discussions on the CocoforCannabis.com forum.
For new growers, there will be many opportunities to get advice and follow the lead of proven growers. For experienced growers, it is a wonderful opportunity to pass along what you have learned and to show off your skills. For all growers, the community is here to support your success.
The Same Strains at the Same Time!
Germination Date: April 20, 2019
Discounts available on the “Official SAFC Strains”
We are going to try and match strains and grow the same auto flowers at the same time! We chose four amazing auto flowering strains from the renowned breeder Dutch Passion and have declared them to be the official strains of the 2019 SAFC! It is not mandatory, but we encourage all participants to include 2, 3, or all 4 of these strains in your SAFC grow! To encourage everyone to grow the same strains, we have arranged an awesome deal with the London Seed Centre just for the SAFC!
All Growers Welcome!
We welcome growers of all skill levels! It is free to join and there are no requirements to participate.
Whether you are a new grower looking for guidance or an experienced grower looking to share knowledge, we would love for you to grow with us in the SAFC!
On today’s show, I have two growers that I’ve grown to like and respect in the past few months. They are Jack @jackgreenstalk on instagram and Shawn @skilbo1 on Instagram. This conversation was an hour and a half long and I initially decided to break it up into two or three different parts but ultimally I decided against that. The topics we discussed are wide ranging from our own personal grows to the current state of the cannabis market in America, and genetics experts. Both of these growers have been growing a lot longer than me, and there’s a lot of helpful information in this podcast. I mostly sat back, listened and learned to what these two gentlemen had to say. Please remember to press subscribe and enjoy the show!
I invited Dr. MJ from Coco For Cannabis back on the Cheap Home Grow podcast, and he was kind enough to talk about how to stress train and top your cannabis plants. His explanation of how stress training and topping is easy to understand and his advice is perfect for a new or even experienced home grower that’s looking to pick up a few helpful tricks on how to maximize yield.
We here at the Cheap Home Grow Podcast always appreciate Dr. MJ’s almost “precision like” approach to growing your own. He’s been on the show in the past and talked about germination, transplanting and how to grow in coco coir.
This podcast with Dr. MJ won’t disappoint. Please listen and tell me what you think in the comments section below. Thanks.
I had the pleasure of talking with Alex Robles from the In My Grow Show. He runs his own podcast. It’s full of rich content and I highly recommend it. Alex has been growing for many years and comes on the show today to talk about how to diagnose a nutrient deficiency and also talks about calcium and NPK deficiencies as well. You can Alex is a passionate cannabis grower because of his deep knowledge and zest to grow cannabis for the betterment of himself.
I was fortunate to interview Canadian home grower Jenna. She’s been growing for many years.
I’ve gotten to learn Jenna over the past few months and her knowledge about growing and genetics is unmatched to any past guest I’ve ever had. To say she’s passionate about cannabis and it’s potential would be a massive understatement.
Jenna and I put together a list of common household tools and equipment any domesticated house will probably have laying around.
A lot of these tools are basic and will help you become a better cannabis grower.
At the end of the podcast, she also stresses listeners to make there own clones. She explains a simple procedure on how to do so.
I had the pleasure of talking with Michael Eberhardt from @docbudshighbrix on Instagram.
He comes on the show to talk about the importance of Nutrient Density and explains how to bud wash your cannabis in a simple and very cost-effective manner.
I can tell Michael has a deep passion for growing cannabis and left a job in corporate America to pursue his dream of growing.
He goes into detail as to why the brix reading for cannabis is important for cannabis growers because the higher the brix reading, the quality of bud will dramatically increase. He made the point that a lot of organics cannabis growers see relatively high brix readings hovering around the 12 or 13 mark but he feels with enough focus on quality versus quantity a brix reading of nearing 20 would be ideal for “top-shelf” bud. He made the point, organic growers in Northern Italy are consistently getting high brix readings.
I was fortunate enough to have youtube sensation on the Cheap Home Grow podcast this week. Medfit talks in detail about soil amendments and why as a home grower you should care about what amendments you put into your soil.
Medfit is self-educated and talks how he started growing in Las Vegas in 2014. Like many new or novice home growers, he tested multiple different growing mediums but eventually found his way with growing organically.
Medfit talks passionately about how super soil does nearly all of the work for him. Like many traditional home growers that have to PH, PPM, EC etc.. he lets his soil do that work for him.
He does into detail as to how this process works.
I especially like this approach because as many of you know I’m a relatively new grower. I, like most home growers, can’t devote an excessive amount of time every day to growing there own so Medfit’s almost “hands off” approach is something I think you can truly appreciate especially if you’re looking for a simple way of growing your own cannabis without sacrificing quality or yield.
This podcast is definitely worth a listen for anyone that’s interested in “spicing” up there own soil and getting a better quality tasting bud.
