COGO’S CORNER:
Successful cultivation of medical marijuana is neither a mystical pursuit nor a haphazard operation; furthermore, grow rooms themselves require no attention from high priests and shamans.
In fact, the application of direct and simple scientific methods is the road to exemplary and cost efficient results.
For decades many growers have been misled by erroneous information and even today few gardeners have a working knowledge of basic cultivation methods.
Intense and comprehensive marketing campaigns have developed a huge industry of unneeded product lines.
That these lines flourish is evidence of how successful these strategies have been.
Certainly the promise of innovation and technological break-through is attractive to novice and professional growers alike.
However, marketing often makes it difficult to discern useful innovation from costly hype.
A typical trip to the grow shop reveals aisle upon aisle of products adorned with flashy labeling designed to appeal to the eye rather than the intellect.
By 1947 the nutrient requirements for cannabis were already widely known, and the practice of using N-P-K fertilizers with chelating agents had long been established.
Today, the trend is to employ twelve to fifteen products during a grow cycle when, in reality, all necessary elements can be combined into a one or two-part fertilizer.
A major consideration when purchasing fertilizers should be the degree of the nutrient concentration within the solution.
Unfortunately, the majority of available fertilizers are overly dilute; and some fertilizer companies use wetting agents to artificially increase nutrient concentration and often add plant extracts that inflate cost but are not proven to effect yield.
Moreover, many elements in today’s fertilizers are not entirely in ionic form, making them unusable by the plant.

Despite being called a weed for many years.
(nur registrierte User sehen den Link, login oder registriere dich) is a long night short day plant.
The light schedule that has been taught for many years is (nur registrierte User sehen den Link, login oder registriere dich) for grow and (nur registrierte User sehen den Link, login oder registriere dich) for flower suggesting a long day short night schedule.
(nur registrierte User sehen den Link, login oder registriere dich) is not… a short night long day plant .the long day light cycle was taught by "ganja gurus" and advertised in high times and other publications.
The correct light cycle schedule and technique for cannabis is 12/1 and 6/18.
This light cycle and technique is suited for long night and short day.
The 12-1 light schedule is named so because of the one hour control in between the night cycle .
12 hours on 5.5 off 1 hour on (that’s the control) then
5.5 off is the growing light cycle.
And for flowering and fruiting
6 hours on and 18 hours off.
The key to understand this light cycle for cannabis is to to recognize the one hour interruption that keeps the plant in veg.and on the cusp of flowering.
Commercial flower growers use this technique to get their flowers finish at a specific date and time.producing nicer crops, and they save on the cost of electricity .
So whats the big deal if people are growing (nur registrierte User sehen den Link, login oder registriere dich) and 12/12..it works doesn’t it?
everyone is using it right? and everyone is successful Are they not ?
or are they ?
The grower using the wrong cycle for cannabis…. despite being "successful" using those false light cycles… those growers are using approximately 1428 hours of electricity when compared too 630 hours of electricity for the correct light cycle.
This makes it impossible for people using 18/6-6/18 to compete in a "legal market".
like in any business ,your cost to produce a product efficiently and productively determines if you will have leverage or not.
and for everything thing that is manufactured…the goal is too make money.
When growers misidentify the plant they are growing, and the lighting schedules they are using … for what ever the reason….
it limits their ability to compete.
one grower uses 1428 hours of electricity.. while the other grower is using only 630 hours of electricity… is a huge savings… approximately 50%.!!!!!! that’s huge.
The problem for growers today is the purposeful misinformation and misleading marketing and manipulation of the market .
