Listen to Diagnosing Plant Problems, with Dr. Coco

Dr. Coco from www.cocoforcannabis.com is back for another podcast, this time talking about the long awaited topic of diagnosing problematic issues in cannabis plants.

Dr. Coco walks us through each of these five facets of growing, and details what we should be thinking about and examining in our grow room to determine the best course of action. Maybe fungus gnat problems, for instance, get misdiagnosed as deficiencies according to Dr. Coco. Rather than just rushing to your nutrient deficiency chart next time you see discoloration, Dr. Coco recommends you do a full run down of your grow, and the most important factors that comprise it, and use a process of elimination to find and remedy the issue plaguing your grow.

This is a bonus episode from our brand new show The Homegrown Helpers, where Rob interviews grow consultants to bring you the latest tips and tricks from the grow room! If you like this, make sure to subscribe to the show, this will be the last bonus episode dropped on Growcast for a while!

Alex, better known as Miami Mango on Instagram, joins us from his grow in Florida where he’s been helping clients set up and maintain grow rooms for the last 20 plus years. With a wide range of skills that include HVAC and construction, he got his start just by building rooms, realizing they were for cannabis, and then deciding to be a full cycle consultant.

What type of lights does Alex suggest you use? Same as he uses in his grow rooms, the Sun System Double ended due to the quality light spectrum and the 5x5 footprint that he knows he can count on.

Environment is everything when it comes to plant health and succeeding in the grow room. Tune in around 14 minutes to learn exactly how Miami Mango thinks about room environment and how to control it.

Miami Mango has been defoliating for a long time, some people might know it more as schwazzing made popular recently. However, if you want to increase yield this is the most impactful step you can take to increase yield, according to Alex. You definitely need to listen in so you can max out your yields just like he does.

Environmental controls – Trolmaster is the key to controlling the environment in your grow room. Hit up https://mangotech.store/ or maimi.mango to learn more how to maximize your grow rooms environment.

Water doesn’t cut through granite because of it’s strength, but because of it’s persistence. Stick to your grow if you want to be successful, listen up for tips how at about 37 minutes.
