How To Get 4-6oz Per Plant In 70 Days With G8LED And Autoflower Seeds

Autoflowering cannabis strains have proven themselves to be a good alternative to typical cannabis strains in the last few years.

Combine these properties with the extraordinary growing power of G8LED indoor growing technology and you will have an extremely efficient grow environment with multiple harvests per season.

How To Grow Marijuana Plants With Low Stress Training

By Robert Bergman Low Stress Training (LST) is essentially any technique for training your marijuana plants that does not cause them stress in the way that something like topping or pruning could. Like most techniques for improving yields, LST’s main goal is providing as much light exposure to the plants as possible. The inverse square law states that the light’s intensity radiating from its point source is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the light. For marijuana cultivators, all this means is that the superior light is [...]

Researchers compared these trends to geographically matched states that had not adopted medical marijuana laws. Authors reported overall “no [...]

Topping Marijuana Plants Can Increase Your Yield

By Robert Bergman Topping marijuana is typically misunderstood by most growers. A single growing shoot might produce a larger individual cola, but topping the plant gives you 4 colas that can soak up the best light intensity. The entire plant, in general, is allowed to get more light and produce bigger buds. Although individual colas might not be as large, the cumulative yield is much greater than an un-topped plant. It’s vital that you top the plants early on so that you get a solid start. When my clones take [...]
