    First time guest and talented breeder Chemma Lab joins the show for an episode that was intended to be all about breeding environment, but Chemma was so easy to talk to we spoke on all sorts of subjects- from transitioning from growing for flower to breeding seeds, to what drives Chemma's work, and more. Chemma and Jordan break down how they approach flavor and taste testing, and categorizing flavors in high and low end notes- like sound frequencies. This leads to a conversation about all the "yummy" weed that people have been breeding for- driven by popularity and the consumer market... But Chemma and Jordan talk about the nostalgia for good old OG strains, noxious chem strains, and funky foul fucked up nasty cultivars. Chemma of course also extrapolates on the strains she has available for purchase, and what you can expect from her work with chems, OGs, and more. *Code growcast15 now works with grow KITS from AC Infinity! www.acinfinity.com use promo code growcast15 for 15% off the BEST grow fans in the game, plus tents, pots, scissors, LED lights, and now GROW KITS!* *BIG THANK YOU to The Coffee Joint in Denver for hosting our amazing Living Soil Masterclass!

    You know her, you love her, Marybeth Sanchez is back on the main podcast! Today Marybeth shares her deep passion for outdoor gardening, and gives us some incredible tips on how to control your environment (as best you can) in an outdoor setting. Marybeth discusses the importance of mulching through the entire episode, and she emphasizes the variety of benefits it brings from shielding the soil from sun, to reducing root temperatures, and more. She talks about a variety of mulch options, and which ones you should and shouldn't apply to your garden beds. This leads to a larger conversation about root zone temperature, and how in an outdoor grow it is often most beneficial to focus on shading and cooling your POTS rather than your CANOPY. MBS also discusses shade cloths before wrapping the show, which percentage of shading is right for you, and when it's best to grow your plants under stippled shade instead of a full blown shade cloth! *Code growcast15 now works with grow KITS from AC Infinity! www.acinfinity.com use promo code growcast15 for 15% off the BEST grow fans in the game, plus tents, pots, scissors, LED lights, and now GROW KITS!* *PROUD NEW PARTNERS: Pulse Grow Room Monitors, industry leader in grow room data and monitoring!

The great and powerful Dr. Coco from www.cocoforcannabis.com is back on the show! Today he joins us for our inaugural Habitat September episode- and the topic is all about environment! Dr. Coco doubles back and does some more in depth exploration of two hot topic abbreviations in the grow world: VPD and DLI. He discusses the misconception around DLI and how it's often misused as a LIMITING measurement, when in reality it's simply a TOTAL measurement of how much light a plant receives per day. Dr. Coco also dismisses some VPD myths, and talks about how some aspects of our environment are simply more important than others- temperature for instance. Dr. Coco also shares his thoughts on veg times, and how increasing plant count and reducing pot size for a quicker veg cycle can drastically improve your garden's overall efficiency and productivity. Dr. Coco wraps the show by speaking on his plant training grow challenge, which you can find at Coco for Cannabis with a category for everybody- even misfits and leaf strippers! *Code growcast15 now works with grow KITS from AC Infinity! www.acinfinity.com use promo code growcast15 for 15% off the BEST grow fans in the game, plus tents, pots, scissors, LED lights, and now GROW KITS!* *Proud partner of FOOP Nutrients!Certified organic nutrients, clone gel, mist, NEW BLOOM PACK and more!

    The great and powerful Rhizo Rich is back on the podcast- having just dug himself from the grave after a bout with the kahuna virus, the Rhino returns! Today Jordan and Rich do a couple deep dive reviews into recent strains that they've cultivated. From the doughy, sweet and syrupy Pancakes that Rhizo Rich just did an open pollination with, to the Hawaiian cultivars that Jordan just took down. Rich also discusses more about the GAWD cut that he was super impressed with during his pheno hunt, and how he will almost certainly be working with that female in the future. Jordan talks about the Molokai Citrus Kush and how impressed he was with the exotic yet non traditional tropical terpenes that were expressed- this leads to a conversation about heavy feeding cultivars, and how to keep up with those monster eaters in your grow tent! *Code growcast15 now works with grow KITS from AC Infinity! www.acinfinity.com use promo code growcast15 for 15% off the BEST grow fans in the game, plus tents, pots, scissors, LED lights, and now GROW KITS!* *Proud partner of FOOP Nutrients!

Great friend of the show Michael Box joins the program again for an update on all things Sustainable Village. Michael gives us an update on his bottomless pot tech, and how the team is still dialing in cap mats to work with this interesting plug and play soil bed style. This leads to a conversation about new BluMat technology, where they are allowing the carrots to trigger a circuit to activate a solenoid switch- allowing for a high outflow of water for irrigation... Michael discusses the new irrometers available on his website, and how they differ from a traditional hygrometer - being far more accurate at measuring actual soil water tension, but also far more delicate and frail. Finally Michael also gives us a little history lesson when it comes to the BluMat system, and highlights a story where the owners visited his headquarters all the way from Austria! *Code GROWCAST is now LIVE AGAIN for a LIMITED TIME at www.sustainablevillage.com - grab yourself a Blumat now while they're on sale, use code GROWCAST for 10% off!* *PROUD NEW PARTNERS: Pulse Grow Room Monitors, industry leader in grow room data and monitoring!

Fan favorite Queen of the Sungrown is on the podcast again for an entertaining and informative episode about biochar, microbes, heavy metals and more. Queen and Jordan talk about the presence of heavy metals in cannabis gardens- where we have to be careful of how cannabis can act as a bio accumulator and store these elements that are toxic to humans. Alexandria explains how they are both found naturally in the Earth's crust, and also find their way into our soil through the inputs we use. This leads to a conversation about sea products, and how they are often contaminated with high levels of heavy metal- though not always. Jordan and Queen go on to talk about bio-char, and how useful biochar can be in a system where you're establishing and regenerating soil for long term use. This leads to a broader conversation about creating an in ground permaculture type grow, and how some theorize the Amazon Rainforest may have been a permaculture planted by indigenous peoples local to the area from the past.

    OK Calyx is back for part two of his interview, perfect for Plant Health July! OK Calyx discusses some of his favorite natural farming techniques to employ when growing cannabis and other plants. He starts by talking about composting, and how learning to compost really led him down the road of microbiology forward, closed loop farming. OKC gives us some great composting tips, differentiating between static piles and turned piles. He also talks about some minimal turning experiments he is doing, to see how much he can speed up his compost pile with just a few turns a year. OK Calyx goes on to talk about JADAM farming, and specifically what JADAM means versus KNF. This leads to a conversation about his cannabis specific JLF- a water steeping based fertilizer that is made from cannabis plant waste. OK Calyx talks about why you should never let your plant scraps go to waste, tips as to how you can create a powerful cannabis specific JLF at home, and which input he has kept around steeping the longest. *Code growcast15 now works with grow KITS from AC Infinity! www.acinfinity.com use promo code growcast15 for 15% off the BEST grow fans in the game, plus tents, pots, scissors, LED lights, and now GROW KITS!* *Proud partner of FOOP Nutrients!

    Sorry for the late upload everyone, hope you had a spectacular 4th of July! As we transition from Cannabis History June into Plant Health July, we have a wonderful guest on the line with our old friend Breeder Steve! Steve has been hard at work down in Colombia of all places, and he updates us on all the incredible cannabis advancement going on south of the border. He talks about breeding strains that work in an equatorial climate, and what traits he is looking to select for in order to have a thriving, replicable cannabis crop. Steve shares how he brought many modern poly-hybridized strains down to Colombia, and how some adapt to the local climate much better and more quickly than others. Steve then takes the conversation back towards his homeland of Canada, and gives us an update on where Canada fits in the global market scene. He also talks about the good old days in Canada, and what the cannabis culture was like when he was growing up. *Looking for a positive place to connect with other growers and expand your knowledge of cultivation?

OK Calyx talks about the days of growing underground, how hard the police were on cannabis, and how limited the genetic availability was to cultivators. He also talks about how he had to live in secret with his own medicinal use of cannabis, having transitioned from harmful pharmaceuticals and alcohol to medical cannabis usage. Calyx also discusses the breeding work that he is doing, largely revolving around multiple blueberry crosses- working with both the BlueBerry Muffin and Blueberry TrainMac, among other strains.

    The one and only Dr. Coco from www.cocoforcannabis.com joins the show for an incredible explanation of the history of horticultural lighting. Starting all the way back with incandescent technology in the 1800s, Dr. Coco talks about the lighting advancements that took us into the 1900s like fluorescent technology, and eventually HPS high intensity discharge bulbs. Dr. Coco talks about the development of street light techonology, and how grow lights originated from this tech that was intended to put a lot of light into large areas at night. He also breaks down the exact differences between metal hallide, ceramic metal hallide, high pressure sodium, and more. This of course all culminates in the creation of LED technology which is now far and away the best lighting option- Dr. Coco explains why that is unlikely to change for some time, but also speculates on new lighting tech stating: it's hard to imagine what we can't imagine yet! *New PEACHQUAKE Pollination is LIVE at GrowCast Seed Co - experience the incredible Tectonic Truffle cross with the GC Cup winning Truffle Cake lineage, available now while supplies last at GrowCast Seed Co!* * www.ceogrow.xyz use code GROWCAST for all your bad-ass tent upgrades!

He and Miss Rose are on the line today to discuss some of the their awesome new crosses that are dropping soon, and share some old school stories from their time influencing cannabis history on the west coast. Jinx talks about the Seattle grow scene back in the 1990s, and explains how there really was no way to get quality cannabis seeds or cultivation education. He talks about how some of the most prolific strains that he crossed came from bag seed early on, but how Seattle was still hungry for more genetics. Jinx tells the story of how he met the late Subcool, and the huge impact that these two figures had in the Pacific Northwest cannabis seed scene. Jinx emphasizes the importance of head shops during this time, and talks about how the cheapening of the glass industry is driving out these classic venues, and depriving the next generation of an entire genre of cannabis establishment... *Illinois Classes!

    Today we have the return of a great friend of the show- Dr. Greensky from Red Scare Seed Co! He's back on the show to talk about the crazy lawsuit that he got caught up in that may be leading a landmark cannabis ruling... This leads to a conversation about current legislation and the state of the cannabis industry as a whole. Dr. Greenskye also discusses his thoughts on testing- which he insists is more of "intersex selecting" than actual agricultural testing. Greenskye also goes deep on his new Afghan work, where he is hunting though two Maruf packs- the red and the black phenos. He talks about his favorite regions and what types of flavors and profiles he gets from the cultivars of said regions- and insists that if you want to find winners, you'll want to stick to the silk road... *Personal Garden Support- Hundreds of Hours of Member Content- Give Aways...

    Today we have the famous breeder, creator of Dominion Seed Co, "fresh out the joint..." Duke Diamond joins the show! Tune in to hear how Duke has been doing since his release, his future plans for Dominion Seed Co, and more. Duke and Jordan talk about some of his favorite work, from Granny Skunk to his Munson cross. This leads to a conversation about the controversy surrounding "skunk weed" right now, and Duke shares his thoughts on focusing on the skunky profiles rather than the specific genotypes. Duke also dives into the importance of sulfur, extrapolating on the link between high dosages of sulfur throughout the veg and bloom cycle and the ability for the plant to produce volatile sulfur compounds that contribute to the skunk aroma so many of us know and love... *Thick canvas n thicc-er poles on ACI tents! www.acinfinity.com use promo code growcast15 for 15% off the BEST grow fans in the game, plus tents, pots, scissors, LED lights and more!* *Proud partners of Plant Revolution! www.plantrevolution.com try their new King Crab beneficial bacteria today!
