WHAT’S GROWING ON?:

Does your water suck? Let’s talk about water quality! Plants use water more than anything else, so let’s figure out what kind of water plants love. Dude, bad quality water can ruin your harvest. pH, TDS, chlorine/ chloramines, soft/hard. Do plants like the same water we like?

Is it safe to use softened water?  Posted by HighTimesnTX 

What is softened water? Why do people use water softeners?

How much sodium does a water softener put in your water? Well, it all depends on how much “hardness” was in the water to begin with. The softener “exchanges” about an equal amount of sodium for the initial hardness. The harder the water, the more sodium you’ll have added to the final product. In other words, if your water test tells you that you have 18 grains per gallon hardness, installing a water softener will add about 35 milligrams of sodium to each 8 oz. glass of water you drink.

What makes hard/soft water?

Google search for harley smith hydroponics

What are you trying to remove? 

Chlorine/chloramine Dechlorinator  $140

Salts – what’s in there  Reverse Osmosis System  $240

Softeners vs Carbon filters vs RO filters – when each is appropriate.

What about Microbes?  Is chlorine harmful to plants?

Amino Acids FTW

FALL OF PROHIBITION/ MARKET REPORTS:

About gardening with the kids!:

Crawdaddy1420 My son’s getting ready to turn 24 & would love for him to learn in the garden. Problem is I think I’ve spoiled him by always having access to craft cannabis. Not going to push him but I sure know it helped me when I felt lost!

Do you garden with your kid? Do either of your kids have any interest?

About all the grow stores going out of business because of Amazon:

GettAtMello As a young generation grower we definitely Amazon/order everything to our houses

Goober9983 Scotty is right, on ordering soil through Amazon. A couple years ago I needed one bag and it traveled 300 miles and arrived in a big box 😊

apollokid_green5915Great episode! I 100% need my local hydro store. Shout out to Hydrokulture in Fredericksburg VA. I get all my worm castings, nutes, and recharge from my hydro store. I always have great conversations and get good advice when I go. That said, I do get all my acinfinity gear from Amazon 😅😅 price point can’t be beat.

On drying and curing:

smokeyams8636Thanks for the shout out Scotty!! I dry in my 2×4 tent fan on 1 setting too! Works great 👍 DGC fuckin rocks!!!!

fincarosa6767 I got one of the 2 sided tents.  Plan to use small side for drying. Using 2 inwall vent fans. One blowing in from main side, at the top and one at bottom, to pull back into main tent, so smell gets filtered.

Bvalantinas It seems, in retrospect,  short sighted to build fancy grow rooms without also including a harvest room/space.

Bobbysmoothstick I went the easy route and got a cannatrol, set to 68 temp and 54  dewpoint for a 14 day dry, then cures at 68 temp and 55 dew point until I put it in jars to ripen.  No burping for me ! hehehe saved  me lots of time and worry. I only worry about how much my cannatrol cost now hehehehehehehehe!!!!  Happy growing!!!
