With Saalome Dojah
I think before I begin my writings, I would like to introduce myself and share a bit about myself and my experience as an organic gardener. I have always had an interest in cannabis cultivation, some have even compared it to an obsession. Even before I ever put my first seed in the ground, I had binders and booklets of my own research of general cannabis cultivation, and the science behind it. I had no idea the things I was about to learn…
After a brief run with advanced nutrients (synthetic nutrients), I discovered true living organics, a gardening method that utilizes the microbial life within the soil to do the work for you. True living organic gardening is more than a growing method, it becomes a lifestyle of sorts. Everything you do seems to coincide with everything else, just as it would in nature. You start to understand how nature works, and you start to become a way for nature to thrive through you, the way she has for many millions of years.These methods are not new, and there is nobody that can claim these methods as their own, except Mother Nature herself. Many have figured them out, and have helped bring it back to the growers. The Rev has played a huge part in my success as a grower, being a friend and mentor for many years.
There are some simple rules to follow, and if you stick to these rules, it can be simple to grow some good, clean medicine for you to medicate with and enjoy. I am starting over from seed, after some issues with powdery mildew. It was the first time i have ever had it in almost a decade of growing. I am sharing this because first thing you should know is, all growers have their problems from time to time. Learning as well go, and sometimes the lessons come at a high price. If possible I would like to share my mistakes I have made as well, so that you can avoid be same downfalls, even though I have had mostly positive experiences.
I will be sharing each step, as I go, and sharing my true experience with you. I have perfected, (well I like to think so), some basic steps and methods for germination, transplanting, soil building, and everything from seed to harvest. These are by no means the only way, and there maybe easier ways that may work better for you. It’s all about finding you niche. I am not claiming to grow pounds of weed, it has never been about that for me. I have a very special relationship with this plant, having used it to ease my MS symptoms for over a decade. So the meds I grow, are grown from the heart, and for me quality is more important than yield. I am also a disabled man, getting older each day. It begins to catch up with you very fast. So growing more smaller plants was a better, more feasible option for me.
I have a legal ACMPR license to grow 50 plants for medicine in Canada, and have been a legal patient for many years.
I just started some seeds and I will get to the write ups. I hope for those of you looking for some guidance and somewhere to begin, I can help you in some way.
I will be starting with an article about my germination methods, and take it step by step from there. I will include as much relevant information as possible as well as detailed photos, for reference.
I hope you enjoy, and if you already know everything, than this won’t be of any help to you, move on. One thing that will never change for me, is that I will never stop learning, and trying to better my skills as an organic gardener.
Best regards, and happy gardening!!!
