Use Predators To Protect Your Marijuana Garden

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, March, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
predators-to-protect-your-gardenA natural method that makes smart use of biology involves using predators such as ladybugs, praying mantises, or even lacewings. Their qualities of garden protection are widely known, and so it is possible to buy them commercially bred.
 
The breeder should be able to tell you how they can be used most effectively and which insects they will eat. This information is useful once you know what type of insects to expect given your environment. Be aware though, that buying insects won’t work if your marijuana garden is small since there may not be enough food to support them.
 
Larger predators can also be used as means to protect your marijuana garden. If you are planting near a stream, it may be a good idea to encourage frogs, turtles, or lizards to frequent the area by leaving food there occasionally. Birds can also be persuaded to provide support, perhaps by leaving birdseed or even using a bird feeder. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about pest control.
 
Subtlety is probably best because you will want to draw the least amount of attention and suspicion. Casual observers might be drawn to your marijuana planting area if there are swarms of insects, reptiles, or birds in the area. This is one more instance in which respecting the natural environment will help keep your marijuana plants safe, and enable them to grow well.
 
Organic Insecticides
 
Thanks to the organic movement it is easy to find organic insecticides wherever nonorganic insecticides are found. Organic insecticides usually work by mimicking the natural pesticides produced by the plant, only in highly concentrated amounts. Pyrethrum is one of the most powerful and therefore most popular organic insecticides and is effective against a wide range of pests. Read the label carefully and make sure to follow the printed procedures, especially if the substance needs to be water-diluted.
 
The one drawback to organic insecticides is that even these may be indiscriminate killers, harming the insects and mammals that you might already be employing in your garden’s defense. Unless your marijuana plants are truly being decimated, use any pesticide sparingly and with decreasing frequency as the plants mature, preferably stopping after they have left the critical early period of life.

Being Friends With The Weed Man

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, March, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
being-friends-with-the-weed-manDealing To Friends
 
Those who don't have access to medical cannabis are still forced to buy from a street dealer. A lot of people have pretty good relationships with their weed man, which could be a good or a bad thing. Depending on how you handle things with a friendly weed man, the purchase and sale of marijuana can make or break a friendship. Smoking together after you buy a bag can be great but when some bags turn up short or prices all of a sudden skyrocket, the friendship can be put at risk for sure.
 
It's always hard to deal to friends because in all honesty, you kind of feel bad. Taking their money (providing that you're selling bud to help people out and not just to make a quick buck) makes you feel pretty scummy and when a quality product isn't around, things can get a little hairy. Do you always trust your friends or could they be using you because of your honesty and generosity? It's important to know the difference because as awesome as it is to have a bunch of friends, it's not awesome when they start to steal from you. Even if you don't want to acknowledge that this happens, it does. So if you happen to be the friendly weed (wo)man, just be careful about who you really trust.
 
There have been reports all over forums that friends have actually tried to return a bag if they're not happy with the weed. That's pretty ridiculous when you think about it. Buying bud isn't like buying a shirt and the fact that people even have the backbone to ask to return bud is crazy. They complain about the price for the quality, maybe the bag is slightly off, or perhaps there are too many stems for their liking. For one thing, these people are definitely not your friends, especially if this seems to happen often. One in a great while is acceptable. Sometimes, people mess up. But more then that, chances are your "friend" is trying to rip you off.
 
Just be sure that you know who your friends are. It's important to be smart if you're going to sell bud. Even though people may seem like they're your friend, being close to a weed dealer can provide added benefits like free smoke ups as well as hookups. And if you're the one who's the friend of the weed person, don't rip them off. These people have enough to worry about with you trying to rip them off. Be respectful and remember karma!

Harvest Problems; Irritants

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, March, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
weed-harvest-article
During the marijuana harvest, there's a lot of work that needs to get done. Trimming is the worst part of the process is that it takes so long and is incredibly uncomfortable. People tend to sometimes hurry in this part of the growth process or sometimes, just work too hard and get too tired. Whatever the case may be, it is a common mistake among growers to be trimming their buds and mistakenly rub their eyes. This is a huge no-no when it comes to trimming, as I found from the many reports scattered across the internet.
 
If you are trimming, it's possible that the plants will give the trimmer an allergic reaction. Since cannabis is a flower, it is definitely possible to be allergic to it. This can cause people to break out in a rash similar to hay fever and also cause a runny nose and itchy eyes. Unfortunately, this leads to the next no-no that you should avoid when trimming and that's wiping your eyes with your gloves on. While it may seem like common sense, sometimes a person can forget that they're doing and accidentally rub their face with their trim-covered hands. This leads to extreme discomfort in the eyes, even causing a temporary blindness according to some reports. Since your eye is so sensitive, the massive amount of pollen/trichomes/other irritants is directly absorbed and creates incredible pain.
 
When harvesting bud, it's important to always wear gloves. Sometimes, the trim residue doesn't wash off when the project is done and you can still suffer these effects, even though you've washed your hands. Wearing gloves will ensure that you don't have to wash your hands so many times after. Also, it is important to change the gloves often, as there does stand a chance that you can get residue on your fingers even through the protective layer. Changing gloves often makes sure that you don't get any residue on your fingers.

How To Grow Marijuana Without Getting Caught

What are the risks of growing marijuana
 
Growing marijuana comes with a few of attendant risks. There is always the threat from law enforcement (depending on your location), but thieves also present a problem, especially for outdoor growers. For the most part, getting caught with a small number of plants won’t land you in too much trouble. For instance, I was forced to do 240 hours of community service after law enforcement found 900 plants in an enormous hangar in Amsterdam. If you only have 10 or so, then you may just get off with a warning or fine (although your plants will be confiscated).
 
If you don’t want to get caught, try these things:
 
1. Do NOT talk to anyone about it
 
More often than not, people get caught simply because they like to talk about growing marijuana. Keeping your mouth shut isn’t easy, especially when you’re so enthusiastic about and proud of your progress. If you tell one person, then you’ve practically told all their friends, too. Before too long, everyone knows you’re growing weed.
 
If that’s the case, then someone who doesn’t like you might hear the news. It’s very easy for someone to call the police and snitch on you. Even your good friends can become your enemies and give you away to the cops. It’s better to just not trust anyone and keep your weed growing hobby to yourself.
 
2. Keep the smell contained
 
The odor of marijuana is very specific and every strain is pretty pungent. Many people are “outed” because of the smell, but it doesn’t have to be a problem. For indoor growers, it’s important to grow in a sealed space. Don’t let the breeze carry the marijuana odor throughout your entire apartment block.
 
If you’re growing a lot of plants using HPS bulbs, it’s important to use an exhaust fan that has a carbon filter. The fan will essentially filter out all the weed scents and only allow clean, filtered air to get outside the room. The exhaust fan is also perfect for removing hot air in a grow room so that the temperatures won’t get out of hand.
 
Outdoor growers have to worry about the weather and the directions of the wind, but it’s not difficult to plan for that. You can even make a greenhouse or grow your plants under a shed. For those growing in forests or cornfields, keep your plants away from hiking trails, recreation areas, or places that are frequented by humans. As soon as the flowering stage hits, the plants will start to smell. The first few months should be odorless, though.

Photosynthesis In Marijuana Plants

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, March, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
ps-in-mj-plantsOne of the most important aspects of plant growth is photosynthesis. It’s something that all plants do and it effectively involves taking the available light and transforming it into energy. That’s really the basic definition of photosynthesis, but it goes a lot further than that. The plants receive light through various pigments on their exterior. Chlorophyll is the most abundant pigment in cannabis and most other green plants and so it is largely responsible for bringing in light energy.
 
In that way, cannabis leaves almost work like solar panels by extending the area that the plant can take in light. More leaves essentially represent more power producers because you have more energy entering into the plant. When the energy is taken into the plant, it is stored in chemical compounds like adenosine-triphosphate (ATP) and nicotinamide-adenine-dinucleotide-phosphate (NADPH2). These are compounds that are built to transfer energy throughout the plant. ATP is integral in the creation of carbohydrates and NADPH2 is integral in the synthesis of carbohydrates.
 
Of course, the plants need to work with something in order to create these carbohydrates. The name alone lets you know that carbohydrates have some mixture of carbon and hydrogen. In marijuana plants, they get those both of those elements from carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O). Obviously, CO2 is found in the atmosphere and water is generally provided by the grower (or other means in a natural environment). Download my marijuana grow bible and learn more about CO2 levels.
 
Plants can absorb CO2 from the atmosphere or from the soil. Water is, of course, absorbed through the roots and transferred into the plant itself. So, the light energy (in the form of ATP and NADPH2) comes together with CO2 and H2O to create carbohydrates (CH2O). As a result of this transaction, there is a spare O2 molecule that gets released into the air. Marijuana absorbs and utilizes all of the items required for photosynthesis and then releases oxygen into the atmosphere.
