Today Shane brings some brand new light reviews to the table and discusses them in depth- coincidentally covering a couple of our GrowCast partners in Photontek Lighting (code growcast) as well as FGI Lighting (code savegrowcast), among others. Shane also covers some mid-range priced LEDs that mimic the high end bard styles, and he goes on to predict that LED grow lights as a whole will drop in price again sooner rather than later.

Purple Stems, Ag Studies, and Natural Cultivation vs Modified Grow Setups, with Brandon Rust

Listen to Purple Stems, Ag Studies, and Natural Cultivation vs Modified Grow Setups, with Brandon Rust

Creator of Black Label Organics and prolific breeder Brandon Rust is back on the podcast! Tune in today to hear him talk about a variety of fascinating grow subjects- Brandon shares his thoughts on a very common issue in the cannabis cultivation world: purple streaking in stems. He talks about how many growers attribute this coloration to "simply genetics" when in actuality Brandon claims it comes from a cation imbalance in the soil (usually due to a high uptake of a specific mineral) that can be remedied to reverse the coloring. The conversation turns towards cultivation research studies, and Brandon talks about the difference between large scale agricultural setups (which are where the majority of research is done) and the types of small scale grows in modified growing mediums like cannabis cultivators frequently operate- this may lead to a disconnect between the research and the actual function of practices in our own grow tents!

Breeder Etiquette, Big Ag Beaucoup Bucks, and Other Moral Quandries, with Rhizo Rich

Listen to Breeder Etiquette, Big Ag Beaucoup Bucks, and Other Moral Quandries, with Rhizo Rich

Long time expert organic cultivator, and GrowCast Team Member Rhizo Rich is back for another GrowCast episode! Today's show is unique in that Jordan and Rich explore some of the most notorious "gray areas" of the cannabis community, from common etiquette between cannabis breeders, to how many growers view the act of profiting off of cannabis... Today's show is all about examining the customs and idiosyncrasies of the cannabis universe, and how they got to be that way. Rhizo Rich and Jordan touch on the topic of breeders F2ing other people's work, and wonder if it's more about the reasoning and intention behind the creation of the strain, rather than the act itself. They also discuss the lack of regulation and legislation around genetics, and speculate as to whether that would even be beneficial at all to the cannabis industry as a whole.

Antagonistic Nutrients, Additional Input Reviews, and More, with Brandon Rust

Listen to Antagonistic Nutrients, Additional Input Reviews, and More, with Brandon Rust

Brandon Rust said he'd be back- and here he is! The prolific Oklahoma breeder and cultivator (check out Black Label Organics) picks up right where he left off as he continues to explore and review common organic nutrient inputs. Brandon extrapolates on the input azomite, and explains why he doesn't include such a broad spectrum nutrient in his garden. This leads to a conversation about antagonistic nutrients, and how adding more of one input can end up locking out a very important element like phosphorous for instance. The conversation turns towards contaminants, and Brandon gives his thoughts on things like heavy metals, where they come from, how cannabis accumulates them, and how to tie them up and make them inert in your own soil. Jordan and Brandon also discuss microplastics, and the fairly new discoveries of plastic consuming microbes.

Listen to Heavy Metals in Inputs, Soil Remediation, and More, with Marybeth Sanchez

Show favorite and Queen of the GrowCast Grower's Chat Marybeth Sanchez returns to the podcast for a heavy metal exploration! Jordan and Marybeth talk about where these metals come from and how they accumulate in the cannabis garden, which is crucial to understand for those looking after their own health- and especially those looking to past cannabis testing! Marybeth discusses the types of inputs that can contain heavy metals, giving a nod to synthetic nutrients for their uniformity, sterility, and rigorous testing (though they of course carry their own input issues).

Friend of the show and creator of www.cocoforcannabis.com Dr. Coco is back on the show to discuss a whole host of grow topics!

Hosts of the Growing with Fishes Podcast and creators of the www.apmjclass.com aquaponics course Steve and Marty join the program to talk about their incredibly comprehensive aquaponics course and membership program, as well as online cultivation censorship, and more. Steve and Marty talk about the incredible amount of education packed in their course, and they answer several of Jordan's questions regarding aquaponic growing. The conversation then turns to microbes, and Mary and Steve talk about some very interesting studies they've done on their aquaponic grows- including one where they tested the effect of HIGH doses of Mammoth P on their fish (spoiler alert, it was surprisingly harmless). The guys also discuss their ongoing troubles with platforms like YouTube, who have a seemingly random enforcement policy when it comes to cultivation content- cannabis or otherwise.

Supersoil Challenge Final Results, Microbes, Organic Vs Synthetic, and More, with Rhizo Rich

Listen to Supersoil Challenge Final Results, Microbes, Organic Vs Synthetic, and More, with Rhizo Rich

GrowCast Team Member Rhizo Rich returns to the podcast for a final update about the supersoil challenge he conducted where the same cut was grown out in 9 different organic "water only" style soils. Rich updates us on the final end products of the challenge, and which differences he saw in their quality, yield, and more. The conversation then turns to a recent GrowCast discussion on organic versus synthetic products, and Rhizo Rich gives his opinion as a 14 year grower in both systems. He also brings up a very successful synthetic run that someone did with his recent cuts, and comments on the differences in yield, bud structure, and consumption experiences. This leads to a discussion about microbes, and Jordan speculates based on his work in the coffee world and speaking with medical doctors, that sterility may be more of an enemy than "synthetic" farming.

Truly one of the most beloved members of Team GrowCast Marybeth Sanchez returns to the show for an incredibly informative episode covering a wide variety of grow topics. Marybeth gives us an update on the autoflower grow she has going and gives her thoughts on the already extremely well-received Mandalorian Genetics- specifically the Anvil.

This leads to a conversation about competing organisms in soil, and Marybeth gives a few good guidelines for living soil cultivators.

This is a process where the cutting's roots are developed while it's still attached to the plant, and the resulting clone is much larger and more vigorous when taken into its own container. Marybeth also talks about her work in the Slack chat, and all the funs things that GrowCast has planned for 2021!

He also talks about washing coco indoors, and brings up the possibility of harming your home plumbing with coco residue. Jordan and Coco then get into a discussion about why people choose to grow organic over synthetic, and whether or not there is a discernible difference in the end product. Coco emphasizes that he encourages responsible organic gardening for a multitude of other reasons- and Jordan points out how growers should be able to hold these different opinions and still get along as friends.

Listen to Ask Doctor Coco, Genetics, Seeds, Sexing and More

The great Doctor Coco from www.cocoforcannabis.com joins the program for another round of Ask Doctor Coco! Jordan and Coco do a deep dive into seeds and genetic stock, starting with the idea of feminized seeds. Coco explains how feminized seeds are produced, but then also stresses the fact that the downsides of feminization don't necessarily apply as much towards cannabis. This is because our genetic pool is already so mixed and hybridized, that a true stable and documented heredity is rarely found. The duo also discusses bag-seed, and Coco emphasizes that while it's always exciting to grow into the unknown, usually these types of genetics are finicky at best- and total disasters at worst. However Coco does admit that some great strains have come from a bag-seed cross, so it's really a personal risk choice. Coco also discusses the sexing process, and the different capabilities of sex testing in the cannabis space- and speculates on the future of genetic testing.

Diagnosing Plant Problems, with Dr. Coco

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 talks about how he has five major factors that he considers whenever he runs into issues with his grow: Climate, Light, Pests, Roots, and Nutrients. 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.
