1 What are the plant stages?
1.1 What does a plant(s) life cycle look like?

Plants grow in three stages.

1) the rooting stage (just clipped from the mother plant and developing roots) 

2) the vegetative stage (green leaf growth and height)

3) the flower stage (the plant is producing fruit or buds) 


1.2 What should I know about each of the 3 plant cycles?

In the rooting stage: the baby enjoys humidity; misting is done with water alone, and do not over-water.

In the vegetative stage: the plant likes a misting of water 3 to 3.5 hours before the lights turn on (Light cycle typically is 18 hours ON and 6 hours OFF)

In the flower stage: the plant likes a misting of 3 hours before the light comes on. (Light cycle typically is 12 hours ON and 12 hours OFF)

1.3 What are some basic nutrients plant(s) need to thrive?

Here are the top 5 base nutrients:

Nitrogen: (N) Important in the vegetative stage, for leaf growth. Lack of (N) would show poor leaf development and the plant itself would be soft and weak.

Phosphorous: (P) Important for root and flower growth. The plant needs extra (P) at both the rooting and flowering stages. Lack of (P) would show signs of stunted or slow growth.

Potassium: (K) Important for helping plant intake nutrients and regulating the intake. Lack of (K) would show irregular growth and not resisting disease (a sick plant). Give less (K) at flowering stage because excessive (K) slows fruit production.

Calcium: (Ca) Important to filter other nutrients, aiding absorption and balancing an otherwise low pH level (over acidity). (Ca) is mostly used in the vegetative stage with (N), and is decreased in flowering.

Magnesium: (Mg) Important in the plants production of Chlorophyll (green) and in it’s use of light. Lack of (Mg) shows more likely in the flowering cycle (you can tell when the leaves turn yellow, while the leaf veins remain green).

2 What about pH?
2.1 How often do I need to check my pH level?

It is essential that you pH; throughout your entire grow. Make sure that every time you go to feed your plant, you check your pH to ensure that it is in the proper range for your chosen medium. 

2.2 What should my pH be if I am in soil?

The proper pH range is 6.2-6.8 for soil. A general rule of thumb is keep it around 6.5, and you will do great!

2.3 If my pH is too low or too high, what do I do?

If your pH is too low or too high, you will need to purchase pH up or pH down, depending on what your meter reads. This product will then help adjust those numbers so that you are in an optimal range for your plant(s). 

3 What about genetics?
3.1 How do I know I have quality genetics?

If you purchase through us, you can be assured your plants genetics are stable and highly reputable. We only carry established breeders who have been trailblazing the cannabis industry for years. 

3.2 What is the difference between autos, fems, and regs?

Auto seeds mean that the seed will automatically flower-regardless of the light cycle. 

Feminized seeds are genetically female, and need to have a strict light cycle (EX. 12 hours ON - 12 hours OFF).

Regular seeds mean that the seed can produce either male or female plants. 

3.3 Can I clone my auto plant?

NO, you cannot clone an auto seed, nor can you transplant autos. This is due to the fact that autos stunt easily when their roots become disturbed. 

4 Starter kit investment?
4.1 What is the benefit of purchasing a starter kit?

Investing towards a nutrient starter kit saves you money in the long-run. It also allows you to try multiple products within a nutrient line-all which will highly benefit your plant(s). 

4.2 How long can my starter kit last me?

This will vary depending on the size of a person(s) grow. 

4.3 What starter kits are in stock currently?

We have FoxFarms Dirty Dozen starter kit, Advanced Nutrients starter kit, and House & Gardens starter kit.
