I’m a hydroponics store manager and the editor of this magazine told me people wanted to know more after I wrote an article about what nutrients are best for marijuana. I said pretty much all I had to say about hydroponics nutrients and organic fertilizers in that article. Now it’s good for me to tell […]
I visited an indoor marijuana garden. The grower was my brother’s friend, begging for help because his cannabis plants were dying and he couldn’t figure out why.

You can buy several pounds of Miracle-Gro fertilizer for $25. At half a teaspoon per feeding, you might still have some of it years from now. Scotts Miracle-Gro costs […]
In a previous article about outdoor marijuana growing, we saw how selecting the right marijuana strains makes a big difference in how much bud you harvest outdoors. Depending on genetics, marijuana strains handle daylength, mites, powdery mildew, gray mold, drought, rain, heat, and other threats differently.
