The most eagerly awaited grow book in marijuana cultivation history has finally arrived!
Trichome Technologiesand#8217; owner and legendary breeder K has enjoyed a career in which heand#8217;s been lauded for having the best grow room in the history of High Times Magazine, he's been the only American to ever have won 9 Cannabis Awards (including 1st, 2nd and 3rd places at the Bay Area Harvest Cup) and has enjoyed a reputation as the most enigmatic cannabis celebrity in recent history.
Now, for the first time, he reveals his secrets, methods and state-of-the-art technologies in a comprehensive guide to all things cultivation. Whether youand#8217;re planting your first seed or perfecting your water-hash-making technique, this book will teach you all you need to know and more. Rather than just telling readers what to do without providing any background, K discusses and explains why one method is preferable to another in any given situation, showing the science behind the theory and the results in the grow.
This guide delves deep into the murky waters of complex horticultural theory and explains it in a way that growers will understand regardless of their experience. As well as germination, cultivation and harvest, K explores details that only a master grower can, from inspecting runoff water and environmental influences on plant sex to building the best run-to-waste system, and everything in between.
Organic and hydroponics are both covered in full, as are closet cloning, how to perfect fertilizer application timing, and manipulating the light cycle to conserve electricity: the kind of practical advice that growers need to get the absolute best out of every single seed and every watt of light.
With forewords from such high-profile names as Zorro, Mel Frank and Jorge Cervantes, a comprehensive study of almost every facet of cultivation, and full-color illustrative photos and diagrams, this book reaches far beyond the grow books already on the market and establishes a new benchmark for the twenty-first-century cannabis grow guide.
From the need-to-know basics for the rookie grower, to highly advanced techniques via an extensive foray into grow styles most growers havenand#8217;t yet heard of, this truly is the indispensable encyclopedia of modern marijuana cultivation.
