For decades, conventional grow wisdom dictated that organic nutrients could not be successfully used in hydroponic systems. In reality, this is certainly not the case! In this article, we’ll talk about the different ways it can be achieved – as well as touching on the controversy the movement is currently causing.
Since 1996 Sensi Seeds’ four-way indica hybrid Black Domina has been standing for merciless terrific indica power, fast flowering, fat yields and a highly special aroma. The Doc fell under her spell and got her in his grow room for a cultivation test. This strain story tells you what it was like for him to encounter Black Domina.
The term ‘craft cannabis’ originated in California to describe sun-grown marijuana farmed sustainably to produce potent bud. By adapting the farm-to-table restaurant model, forward-thinking brokers created a seed-to-shelf service to supply dispensaries with top shelf flower, and promote craft cannabis. But is it a gimmick, or a bid to save an industry in crisis?
The Hindu Kush genetics, 100% indica, have been possessed by Sensi Seeds since the 1980s and preserved in their pure form ever since then. It’s one of the most fundamental cannabis strains to be found on this planet. The Doc put this legend to a cultivation test about the outcome of which you can read in this grow report…
Colombia is in the midst of a cannabis boom that could see the country become one of the largest exporters of medical marijuana in the world but has left Colombian small farmers worried for their future. One Italian company, Hesalis, believes coffee, that old Colombian staple, might be a solution.
Autoflowering cannabis seeds are the easiest way of growing your own harvest. Regardless of how much light there is, after a few weeks they automatically move on to the flowering phase. This way, even novices can get great results. Based on feedback from the community and our own experience, we have selected the best autoflowering varieties for you.
Northern Lights #5 x Skunk #1 was the first High Times Cup winner ever in the mostly indica category. Later on, Sensi Seeds renamed this strain as Shiva Skunk. For me it went along with an almost holy feeling to put this legend steeped in history to a cultivation test, on the occasion of its 30 years Cup victory jubilee.
For so many growers, the highest yielding strains are the holy grail of cannabis cultivation. The question “what are your biggest yielding varieties?” is such a perennial one that we’re devoting an entire article to answering it, rather than just an FAQ – and because this is Sensi Seeds, there’s more than one answer!
June 12, 2018 was not exactly a typical day for Frisian couple Tabe Koopmans and Brigitte Boomsma. That day, they and their home became the subject of quite the police raid, during which their cannabis plants and cuttings were uncovered and confiscated. But the story doesn’t stop here: they now live in their cowshed, because their home has been foreclosed by their town’s municipality.
There are few things worse than lovingly nurturing a crop of cannabis through vegetation and flowering, only to have mould strike in the last weeks before harvest. Unfortunately, this span of time is exactly when the most common types of cannabis rot and mould infections usually occur. Knowing the reasons for this also suggests how to prevent them occurring.
Growing cannabis in greenhouses is the way of the future! This is the only way to combine the benefits of both outdoor and indoor growing. Cultivation is safer, more reliable and simpler than in the open air. You also save a lot of energy, which is good for your wallet as well as the environment.
With the general hype surrounding the relatively recent developments of feminized and autoflowering seeds, you’d be forgiven for maybe thinking that regular cannabis seeds are somehow less exciting. You’d also be wrong. Regular seeds contain endless possibilities for growers to experiment with.
Can you name all of the parts of the cannabis plant? Can you explain what they all do? Do you want to be able to? This article gives an introduction to the anatomy of a cannabis plant, and whether you are a novice or a more experienced gardener, we hope you find it entertaining and interesting!
Cannabis passes through a series of stages in its life. The most important of these are the germination, seedling, growth and flowering stages. Each stage brings its own challenges. Novice growers need to be aware of these, to be sure of giving their plants the attention and care that they deserve.
After the three main nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous), magnesium is the most crucial secondary nutrient for healthy growth and development of cannabis plants. Without it, plants wither, fail to thrive, and eventually die. What does a cannabis plant with magnesium deficiency look like, and what can be done to help it recover? Help is at hand!
Wondering how to tell the difference between indoor and outdoor cannabis seeds? Trying to work out which ones are easiest? Confused as to why Sensi Seeds doesn’t use ‘Indoor’ and ‘Outdoor’ as categories? This article answers all these questions and more!
Growing cannabis is surprisingly simple: all you need are a few seeds, pots, water and light. If, however, you want to maximise yields and also save time, you will do best with a Sea of Green. No other growing approach will allow you to harvest so much in so little time.
Even where cannabis is legal, in many places you are only allowed to have a limited number of plants. Those who want to maximise their yield in the face of this restriction would do best with a Screen of Green. A simple piece of netting will stimulate sideways growth and bud formation. The result: plenty of fat, highly potent buds.
Gardening on a budget? Keen to choose natural methods? Concerned about the environment? Prefer not to purchase fertilizers advertised for growing cannabis? There are many good reasons for making your own fertilizer. This post has been brought to you by the letters N, P, and K!
