Hot on the heels of new research showing marijuana’s pain-relief value and the reintroduction of a bill to legalize, regulate and tax the drug, the Bay Area this week saw the premiere of its first marijuana-themed television show.

“Cannabis Planet,” a 30-minute weekly program, is slated for a 26-week run on KOFY-TV Channel 20 at midnight Fridays.

The show — focusing on the merits of the marijuana plant in medicine, industry and agriculture, and “the benefits this plant brings to planet Earth, mankind and the United States,” according to a news release — is already seen in the Los Angeles and San Diego markets, and will roll out in Sacramento in March and in Colorado this spring.

Three Important Ingredients for Bigger Yields

Hydroponic Herbs

Three Important Ingredients that Help Produce Bigger Yields

Regardless of the type of gardening method you are using, the main goal is to always produce bigger yields. In hydroponics, there are three important ingredients that you can add to your nutrient solution that can exceptionally work for the development of your plants. First, you need the help of humic acid to create a favorable root zone condition that can pump nutrients and water into your plant in a more efficient manner. If you consider adding this potent ingredient to your plants’ nutrient feeding schedule, you can help your plants’ roots resist stress and drought because aside from the fact that it can strengthen your plants’ roots, it can also strengthen the internal walls of your plants so that they can handle the intensity of your indoor gardening environment. And if they are able to withstand any unfavorable condition in your grow room, they’ll have better chances to survive and grow as quickly as they can.

Another important ingredient that can help you achieve bigger yields in hydroponics is fulvic acid. Using fulvic acid as a form of hydroponics additive in your nutrient solution can help accelerate cell division. When your plants are able to receive more nutrients, it encourages photosynthesis, which gives your plants the extra carbohydrates that they need to grow rapidly. In fact, if you are using fulvic acid, it is a good idea to experiment with increasing the intensity of the light. The increased photosynthetic activity means that the foliage or leaves of your plants will be able to process much more light for your plants to rapidly grow.

Finally, beneficial bacteria can also help you create bigger yields in hydroponics because they can help your plants to become resistant against harmful bacteria that can lure your garden. This is because these helpful organisms can prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in your hydroponics reservoir, thus, making your plants healthier and more able to thrive successfully.

Advanced Nutrients Big Mike Recommends Competitor’s Product

big-mike-advanced-nutrients1http://www.growersunderground.com Hey-I realize this probably sounds crazy. But I want you to use a competitor’s product instead of one of my own products.

This is not some publicity stunt, nor is Advanced Nutrients going to be distributing this product. It’s just straight up the right thing to do.

In the video I explain in great detail why I’m doing this. In fact when our research showed that one of our competitors had a better product and it was going to take us awhile to play “catch-up” so to speak. There was only one thing to do, and this is it.

No I haven’t lost my mind I really do want you to go out and purchase my competitor’s product. Because in life I’ve come to realize, that doing the right thing isn’t always the easiest thing.

Hydroponics Supplier Finds Niche in Telluride

Clipped from Telluride Watch

TELLURIDE – Growing your own food in Telluride, at least during the winter, seems implausible – if not impossible.

Yet Telluride new-business owner Scotty Abrahams has brightened locals’ prospects for cultivating their own indoor edibles with the recent opening of his new business, Telluride Hydroponics and Organics.

“You can grow large amounts of food in small areas with minimal energy consumption,” Abrahams pledges, acknowledging the mature science of hydroponics as the means by which even snow-bound Telluride locals can embark upon a more sustainable path.

Hydroponics is a decades-old growing technique that utilizes mineral nutrient-enhanced water, instead of soil, to grow plants. This method allows growers to grow in a variety of different settings (like indoors) as well as the ability to produce significant yields (in smaller spaces).

Hydroponics is easy to set up when you’re a hobbyist, but if you have aspirations of becoming a master grower, you owe it to yourself to read the best hydroponics newsletter on the web.
