What is Hempcrete?

Hempcrete is a bio-composite material that contains a mixtures of hemp, hurds and lime. Like other plant products, hemp absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as it grows, retaining the carbon and releasing the oxygen. Hemp structures date back to roman times and have a lower carbon footprint than many materials. Slowly but surely it is becoming a building material of choice for many who want a sustainable and affordable type of building material. Pretty cool if you ask me!

Its use in con s truction is a small but growing output from hemp farming in the UK, it’s mainly used to provide fibres for quilt insulation. However, Hempcrete can also be used to build houses, with the use of hemp blocks. Hemp blocks ensure humidity regulation, acoustic insulation, as well as protection and fire resistance.

It’s ten times stronger than concrete and one sixth of the weight! With all these factors considered, we’ve decided to delve deeper into the revelation of Hempcrete and came up with some advantages and disadvantages of the material.

Pros
• Non-toxic building material — Hempcrete is generally quite a benign material, fewer pesticides and herbicides are used for farming creating less environmental damage due to the use of toxins on the fields.
• Hempcrete stores heat in the thermal mass of its wall which is then released slowly as the building cools down. This means when you open a window all your heat isn’t going to flow straight out.
• Hemp is the only building material that can remove carbon from the air. Other methods of insulation such as fiberglass have a significant carbon footprint.
• It’s resistant against mold as it’s moisture absorbent. One square meter of hemp wall can absorb up to 14 litres of water which can be released into the ground or recycled.

Cons
• The crop requires liberal use of fertilizer, which can have a negative impact on our ecosystem.
• There is a somewhat lack of builders/architects who are familiar with the product.
• The up-front costs in using Hempcrete can add 8%-12% to the overall price of a home.
• Hemp is not always as readily available as traditionally building materials like concrete.

Since the 1950s the UK construction industry have used synthetic, processed, chemical based materials. This of course has resulted in some homes being prone to damp, and containing harmful levels of toxic chemicals.

Unlike concrete, Hempcrete blocks are fairly lightweight which can dramatically reduce the energy used to transport the blocks. It acts as an insulator and moisture regulator whilst lacking the brittleness of concrete meaning no expansion joints are required. But it’s also very important to consider that concrete is extremely low maintenance and needs fewer repairs, making it a solid investment.

Evidently from a green sustainable point of view, Hempcrete is your winner! But which form of building material do you prefer and why? Is Hempcrete the way forward?

How To Get Rid Of Spider Mites On Houseplants, For Good!

Spider mites look like tiny white spiders that create webs on houseplants, and they are extremely destructive pests. It can be difficult, but don’t worry, you can get rid of spider mites on indoor plants, and eliminate them FOR GOOD!

There’s nothing more frustrating than finding a spider mite infestation on one of your beloved indoor plants.

They are one of the most destructive plant pests there is, so it’s super important to get rid of them as quickly as possible.

But the good news is that, when it comes to getting rid of bugs on houseplants, these guys are pretty easy to control.

Simply follow the natural spider mite treatment methods below, and you’ll be able to eradicate this annoying pest, for good!

Here’s what you’ll find in this guide for getting rid of spider mites on houseplants…

Table of Contents

What Are Spider Mites?

Spider mites are tiny bugs that can attack many different types of plants, and can be a major problem on indoor plants. Often times they look like tiny white spiders on plants, but can also appear to be tan, red or black.

They create telltale spider webs on houseplants, which they use for protection and to crawl around on. Since they are so small, spider mites aren’t noticeable until their population explodes.

You’ll likely notice the webbing on plants first, and then see the mites when you take a closer look. It will look like there are tiny spiders crawling all over your plant.

Spider mites thrive in warm, dry conditions and can become a major problem during the winter, when your dry house becomes the perfect breeding ground for them.

If you see small bugs crawling around in your houseplant soil rather than on the leaves, then you might have fungus gnats instead of spider mites. Here’s how to get rid of fungus gnats in houseplants soil.

Otherwise, if the bugs are crawling around on the plant leaves, and you see spider webs on houseplants, then keep reading…

Spider mites look like tiny white spiders on plants

Indoor Plant Mites Identification

Spider mites are easy to identify, and finding spider webs on plants is a dead giveaway.

They tend to start their webs on the underside of leaves and at the leaf joints, so that’s why they usually go unnoticed for so long.

They are sneaky little suckers. Like I mentioned above, they are difficult to see, and usually by the time you discover them on a houseplant, it’s already been heavily damaged.

You might notice the whites spider web on plants first, or the plant leaves may just look dusty. From a distance, the houseplant might look like it isn’t getting enough water and the leaves are drying out.

If you notice any of these, take a closer look. Hold the plant up to the light and look under the leaves. It may take a minute, but you should be able to see the tiny mites moving around on the fine webbing.

Spider Mite Life Cycle

Spider mites multiply very quickly and, in the right conditions, can double their population every couple of weeks.

Spider mites become fully grown about a week after they hatch. It only takes a few weeks for an adult female to lay hundreds of eggs, and for those eggs to start to hatch.

The end result is in an exponential growth in their population over a very short amount of time.

Since the eggs are invisible to the naked eye, and the adults are minuscule, most people don’t discover spider mites on their houseplants until after the population has exploded.

Where Do Spider Mites Come From

The tricky part about mites is that they can come from anywhere, and you’ll probably never know where they came from in the first place.

But, here are several common places where spider mites can come from…

  • Buying a new plant that has mites
  • Repotting plants with unsterile potting soil
  • Moving your plants outside for the summer
  • Flowers and vegetables brought in from your yard and garden
  • Since they’re so small, they could easily come in through the screens of open doors and windows

Spider Mite Damage On Houseplants

Spider mites are one of the most destructive houseplant pests. They can heavily damage or even kill a houseplant in a very short period of time.

They suck the sap out of the leaves making them look discolored, speckled, curled under, dried or shriveled up.

The infested leaves will shrivel up and die, and usually fall from the plant, which will ultimately kill the houseplant.

Spider mites can kill indoor plants pretty quickly, so it’s important to take fast action to get rid of them as fast as possible.

How To Get Rid Of Spider Mites On Houseplants

Once you discover the infestation, it’s super important to begin spider mite treatment immediately, before they spread to the rest of your collection.

The first thing you should do is to quarantine the infested plant and inspect all surrounding houseplants for mites. You want to contain the problem immediately.

There are chemical pesticides that are specifically designed for mites. But spider mites may develop resistance to them in a short time.

So, I don’t recommend them (plus these types of chemicals are toxic to humans and pets, so I wouldn’t recommend using them anyway).

It’s best to use safer pest control methods and products to get rid of mites on houseplants. You can learn more about natural pest control for your houseplants here.

Below you’ll find the best methods that will work for treating a spider mite infestation on your houseplants…

Spider mites on indoor plants

Spider Mite Treatment For Indoor Plants

The best way to avoid heavy spider mite damage to your houseplants is to start treating the plant as soon as you discover the pests.

As soon as I notice the spider webs on any of my plants, I bring the plant to the sink or bathtub.

Then I wash the leaves with my homemade insecticide soap, and rinse the leaves well to wash away as many of the dead mites as I can.

After cleaning the leaves, I use a variety of home remedies for spider mites, and all of them are very effective for controlling plant mites indoors.

Keep in mind that pesticide sprays, even organic ones, can damage sensitive plants, so it’s best to test it on a few leaves before spraying the entire plant.

Also, be sure to focus your sprays on the undersides of the leaves, this is where spider mites lay their eggs.

Spider Mite Insecticide Soap

To kill mites on plants, use an organic insecticidal soap, or mix a solution of my homemade spider mite insecticide soap (recipe below).

My homemade spider mite insecticide soap recipe:

  • 1 tsp of mild liquid soap
  • 1 liter tepid water

Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle and then spray directly the leaves of your houseplant. This homemade spider mite killer is great for getting rid of the bugs right away.

Homemade spider mite insecticide spray

Use Neem Oil For Spider Mites

Neem oil is very effective to control spider mite infestations long term, and also works for pest prevention as well.

I like to buy neem oil concentrate, and make my own spray for mites on plants using the recipe below.

While neem oil does kill bugs, it can take some time to get rid of spider mites, so I use it after washing the leaves and spraying the plant with insecticidal soap first.

A pre-mixed horticultural oil or hot pepper wax spray also work very well for controlling spider mites on houseplants by repelling them.

My homemade neem oil spider mites spray recipe:

  • 1 1/2 tsp of pure neem oil concentrate
  • 1 tsp of mild liquid soap
  • 1 liter of tepid water

Use neem oil for controlling spider mites indoors

Keep Humidity Levels High

Since spider mites thrive in dry conditions, keeping the air around your plants humid is one of the best spider mite pest prevention methods. Ensuring your plants are properly watered is important to keep them well hydrated.

Misting houseplants regularly helps to prevent spider mites. You could also try leaving a container of water near the plant, or use a humidifier to help keep the humidity up around your plants.

If it’s really dry in your house, then I recommend getting an inexpensive indoor humidity monitor so you can be sure the air around your houseplants isn’t too dry.

Getting rid of mites on plants by misting them

In addition to washing and spraying the plant, you can trim off heavily infested leaves and throw them into the garbage to get rid of even more of the spider mites and eggs.

Be sure to throw the infested leaves into the garbage outside of your house! Don’t prune all of the leaves from your plant though.

How To Prevent Spider Mites From Ever Coming Back

Keeping your plants healthy, and maintaining adequate soil moisture are two of the best ways to prevent spider mites on indoor plants.

A soil moisture gauge is a great tool to use to figure out how moist the soil is, and ensure you’re watering your plants properly.

Here are a few other tips for getting rid of spider mites for good…

  • Mist sensitive houseplants regularly, and keep the humidity level high around the plant
  • Use neem oil as a preventative spray or as a leaf polish to keep your plants leaves clean
  • If you move your plants outdoors for the summer, be sure to debug all of your houseplants before bringing them back indoors

They key to getting rid of spider mites for good is good houseplant care habits, and keeping your houseplants healthy. Healthy houseplants are the best way to prevent recurring problems with spider mites and other houseplant pests. Also make sure you check your houseplants on a regular basis for any signs of problems.

Darlene Borcherding says

We have recently brought our huge Boston ferns back inside for the winter. Are they likely to get red spider mites from our forced air heat registers? One of them is about 4 ft. away from one. We’ll place bowls of water near them, of course. Should we spray them with neem oil altho we don’t see any bugs yet? Thank you so much!

Amy Andrychowicz says

If they have had problems with spider mites in the past, then I would spray them regularly as a preventive treatment. Otherwise, I would just keep a close eye on them to watch for bugs, and treat them if any show up.

Brandi Washington says

Great article. Thank you so much for this. Would it be a good idea to leave a jar of water near the plant for the entire winter?

Amy Andrychowicz says

You sure could give it a try, it will help to add a bit more humidity in the air to keep the spider mites at bay. But if that’s not enough, then misting or running a humidifier might work better for you.

Thank you so much for this page, i found my Areca palm infested with webs sooooo gross. I was so worried I bathed my palm twice with the soap and water mixture. Literally wiped every leaf twice over.

I ordered neem oil which is harder to find than thought. SO just to be clear soapy water spray is good for right now while the mites may still be around, so continue that for how long? and then add neem oil solution once every few weeks? Sorry if this was already asked. Thank you in advanced.

Amy Andrychowicz says

You’re welcome. Sorry to hear your plant is infested with spider mites! That is never fun. You can stop using the insecticidal spray once you start using neem oil. Yes, then spray the neem oil every few weeks. Here’s an article that talks about exactly how to use it… How To Use Neem Oil Insecticide On Houseplants. Good luck!

Vallye Chandler says

I have spider mites on my tomato plants. After I wash the plants well with the soap and water is it safe to use the need oil on the tomato plants, or just continue with the soap and water?

Amy Andrychowicz says

Bummer to hear your plant has spider mites! You can safely use neem oil on the leaves of your tomato plants, no problem. Just be sure to test it on a few leaves first to make sure it doesn’t cause damage. And don’t spray while it’s sunny outside, either do it in the early morning or evening, or on a cloudy day.

Anam tahir says

Hi there. I’ve just discovered spider mites on my monstera and hoping to use your soap method. How often should i spray the plant? Will the soap leave a residue I need to wipe off?

Amy Andrychowicz says

Oh no, sorry to hear your plant has spider mites! Wash the leaves with the mild liquid soap as I mentioned above first, then rinse them well. That will get rid of most of the adults and eggs. Then you can spray the plant once every few days until all signs of the mites are gone. Good luck!

I have spider mites on my meyer lemon tree. Is neem oil safe ?

Amy Andrychowicz says

Yes, neem oil is safe to use on your meyer lemon to help get rid fo the spider mites. But just be sure to test it on a few leaves before treating the whole plant to make sure it doesn’t damage them.

Lita Collazzo says

my potted basil plants were beautiful and then suddenly they were drained shriveling and drooping. I noticed this faint web with tiny little white.specs So I am guessing it is spider mites. I am wondering if after I wash the basil plants with the gentle soap solution and treated with oil, will the basil still be edible?

Amy Andrychowicz says

Yes, it sounds like spider mites to me. For herb plants, I would recommend misting them with water, and washing the leaves with the water/soap mix using an organic liquid soap. Personally, I wouldn’t use neem oil on edible leaves.

Alana Kuhnert says

So I just discovered spider mites on a plant. I sprayed them off with sink hose and then just did the soap and water spray. I ordered neem oil and will be here in a couple days. How often should I spray the soap mixture and the neem oil ? And then for preventative purpose…how often would I spray the neem oil ? Thank you

Amy Andrychowicz says

Oh, bummer to hear your plant has spider mites! Neem oil has a residual effect, so you only need to spray the plant every few weeks. Here’s more info about how to use it… How To Use Neem Oil On Plants.

Maria Montrond says

Hi I have an indoor plant infested with spider web.i don’t have neem oil, is there any other oil to substitute for neem?

Amy Andrychowicz says

Oh bummer, sorry to hear that you plant is infested with spider mites. Simply keeping the humidity high is usually enough to get rid of them. But, you could also try horticultural oil, or regularly washing the laves with insecticidal soap as alternatives to neem oil.

Kathy Stanford says

Hi, I don’t have any Neem oil but do have powdered sulfur. I just sprayed a solution of 1/2 t. sulfur and 1t. castile soap in 1 L of water on my plant. Have you ever done this? Or has anyone else? It’s an Elephant Ear and I’ve moved it away from my other plants. I really don’t want them on my orchids!

Amy Andrychowicz says

No, I have never tried using powdered sulfur, and I’ve never heard of using it for killing spider mites either. So I can’t speak to it. Good luck, I hope it works for you! рџ™‚

Do we leave the unscented Castile soap, neem oil & tepid water mixture spray on the plant? Are we supposed to pour it on the soil too?

Amy Andrychowicz says

Yes, you can leave the neem oil/soap solution on the plant. You don’t need to pour it into the soil unless you see bugs in there. Spider mites live and bred on the leaves, so you only need to worry about spraying the foliage to get rid of them.

Hi..my okra and bean plants are totally infested with spider mite..i am spraying with a soap solution every day but not much result..I’ll try ur tips and hope for the best

Amy Andrychowicz says

Oh no, sorry to hear your plants have spider mites! You could also try the neem oil solution I mentioned above to see if that takes care of them. Good luck!

Spider mites are one of the most destructive houseplant pests and they multiply quickly. But spider mites are fairly easy to prevent and control.

how to pollinate cannabis

How to Pollinate Cannabis

Table of Contents

Want to make cannabis seeds or breed your own strain but not sure how to collect pollen and pollinate effectively? It’s actually really easy!

1.) Collect Pollen When Pollen Sacs Start to Open

Pollen is collected from male marijuana plants after they start flowering, or occasionally female plants when feminizing seeds.

When the pollen sacs from a marijuana plant start to crack and look like they’re about to open up (or if you can see one has already opened) then your pollen is ready for harvest!

When pollen sacs are cracking and opening up, you’re ready to harvest your pollen!

Pollen spilling onto a nearby leaf

One way to harvest your pollen is to gently and carefully remove all the pollen sacs. Let them dry for a week, and then put them in a resealable bag. If you shake the bag the pollen should easily spill out. You may need to cut a few open yourself.

How to Store Cannabis Pollen

Moisture is your main enemy when storing pollen. It can help to double the mass of the pollen collected by adding regular cooking flour. This absorbs moisture during storage and as an added bonus, it will make application easier later when you pollinate your plant.

If you triple-bag the pollen-flour mixture and stick it in the freezer (with a good nametag so you know where the pollen came from), your pollen can be stored for a year or longer. Make sure to use “freezer” bags (platsic bags specifically made for the freezer are more effective than regular plastic bags).

2.) Pollinate Female Plant That’s 2-3 Weeks in Flowering

It’s time to pollinate when your plant has been in the flowering stage for about 2-3 weeks.

Example of young cannabis buds that are ready to be pollinated

When your chosen mother is 2-3 weeks into the flowering stage, take a paintbrush and ‘paint’ your feminized pollen on the developing bud sites you want to pollinate. Bud sites are located wherever you can see leaves meet a stem. By 2-3 weeks in the flowering stage, all the bud sites should have tons of wispy white hairs. These are where you want to put your pollen (in the wild, these white hairs are what capture pollen out of the wind).

Only the buds that come in contact with pollen will grow seeds. You can choose to pollinate all of your buds or just a few on the plant.

Make sure that you’re touching all the female pistils/hairs with your pollen. Here’s a little video showing you exactly what this looks like!

6 Weeks to Harvest Seeds

It usually takes about 6 weeks for your marijuana seeds to fully develop. Some plants are literally dying right as the seeds become ready, so try to keep your plant alive until the seeds start dropping. The seeds can be used right away, or stored in a cool, dry place for a few years (stored in the back of your fridge is great). Don’t forget to label them with the date!

This seed is about to burst out of its calyx!

This is what it looks like when the seed is exposed

1.) Collect pollen when sacs crack 2.) Pollinate female 2-3 weeks into flowering stage 3.) Collect seeds ~6 weeks later. Read the article for pics and more info!

weed and hormones

How Does Cannabis Use Affect Glands and Hormone Production?

Cannabis is a plant, that is used for a variety of anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving purposes. However, very little is known about how cannabis interacts with the endocrine system. While some research shows that THC suppresses hormone secretion from the pituitary gland and hypothalamus, not many definitive conclusions can be drawn.

Human research is difficult to navigate because each patient will have a different reaction depending on many varying factors including diet, chemical exposure, endocannabinoid system (ECS), and general health. In addition to affecting vital sex hormones, evidence suggests that chronic cannabis use may also affect the adrenal, prolactin, thyroid, and growth hormones.

What is the Endocrine System?

The endocrine system is the communication department of your body. It’s made up of the pancreas, sex organs, hypothalamus, as well as pineal, thyroid, and adrenal glands, which communicate to other parts of the body by making hormones, the messengers of the endocrine system. These hormones regulate immunity, influence mood, proliferate growth, adjust metabolism, and even assist fertility. Some of the hormones you’ve probably heard of are fertility hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, prolactin), thyroid, cortisol, and insulin.

The ECS has an integrated role within the endocrine system. Endocannabinoids influence mood, hunger, and energy , among other things, by interacting with hormones. Cannabis can influence the ECS by enhancing or altering its receptors, commonly known as CB1 and CB2 , that can bind to hormones but are also an essential regulator of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis . The HPA axis is one of the main endocrine system conductors that sends critical messages, by the use of hormones, to the body . These different processes of cannabis, found both in rat and human studies, affect the body by suppressing or engaging with hormones or the glands that secrete them and, ultimately, the multifaceted endocrine system.

Adrenal Hormones

The adrenal hormones are the main puppeteers of stress, energy, adrenaline, and blood pressure. They are a topic of interest in a healthy body, especially when they can be influenced by endocannabinoids found in cannabis. The adrenal glands also secrete a small amount of sex hormones, but not nearly enough to rival those produced in the reproductive organs. Cannabis suppresses adrenal activity , according to the 2009 study in the German journal Psychopharmacology study on the effects of cannabinoids on humans.

The suppression of the adrenal glands lowers blood sugar, which may raise cortisol in the short-term . Ongoing adrenal suppression can interfere with blood sugar regulation, raising cholesterol , and suppressing the immune system.

Prolactin

Prolactin is the hormone most people know as the breast-milk-producing hormone, though it has many other functions in the body, especially related to fertility. Prolactin increases with stress and age and affects most tissues in the body, such as skin and hair. High amounts of prolactin contribute to infertility and lowered sexual desire. If in fact, THC has been recorded to suppress pituitary hormones, one of which is prolactin.

High prolactin levels enhance stress in women as well as estrogen dominance, aggression, anxiety, depression, infertility, and osteoporosis, according to studies in the American Journal of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics . While lowered prolactin reduces the risk of breast and testicular cancer . In addition to reducing stress, less prolactin allows for more dopamine , which provides for feelings of elation and happiness. Though keeping prolactin low seems desirable, suppressing pituitary hormones such as prolactin and other reproductive hormones can negatively affect fertility and postpartum.

Thyroid

It is unclear exactly how cannabis affects the thyroid . Research shows that cannabinoids can have beneficial effects for those with Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s disease but can also lower thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which regulates thyroid function. The thyroid is a very sensitive yet powerful gland that controls hormones that regulates mood, digestion, metabolism, and brain function. Cannabis suppresses pituitary hormones, which could cause changes in thyroid function, the consequences of which have yet to be determined by researchers.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH)

The human growth hormone (HGH) is one of the many hormones released via the pituitary gland, which is heavily influenced by the endocannabinoid system and CB1 receptors, those which are affected by THC consumption. The suppression of HGH is beneficial to suppress growth proliferation of a cancerous cell . This is one reason why cannabis is a wonderful prescription for cancer patients. On the other hand, they are crucial for female fertility and the support of the delicate female cycle. Also, as their name suggests, they’re very important for growth and development both physically and mentally. For underdeveloped children, suppressing these hormones is not a wise decision.

Endocannabinoids play a crucial role in the endocrine system between hormone-producing organs and glands to the hormones themselves. Because the endocrine system is so complex and not enough controlled human research has been conducted, it’s still not fully understood how cannabis exactly affects hormones and its impact on health.

How Does Cannabis Use Affect Glands and Hormone Production? Cannabis is a plant, that is used for a variety of anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving purposes. However, very little is known about how

Growing Massive

Butsch of Massive Seeds and Roganja, believes organic farming helps produce a top-shelf crop, but he admits that the microclimate in Southern Oregon really allows the plants to thrive. Photos by Pete Alport.

Peter Butsch and his brother, Paul, have been growing cannabis in Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley for as long as they can remember. They originally learned the secrets of organic-style cannabis farming from their father, who had grown marijuana on the property since the 1970s, and they’ve been carefully refining those techniques for years to create a sustainable, top-shelf product.

“I know every farmer thinks they grow the best weed — and I do too,” Peter Butsch says, laughing at his own boldness.

But no one can blame Butsch for his obvious bias. After all, he knows the time and energy required to grow his delectable crop and he understands the minute details that went into the cultivation process at Roganja, a state-licensed producer in the heart of Oregon’s cannabis country.

Roganja uses green manure that includes daikon radishes and fava beans to prepare the soil.

Green Manure

Healthy soil is the lifeblood of any organic farming operation.

But truly organic, living soil can’t be created overnight. It often takes years of properly developing the soil to create the right microbial balance. At Roganja, this ongoing process ramps up in early March when Butsch plants a cover crop of legumes, beans, peas and radishes. The daikon radishes and fava beans are particularly important at this stage, he says.

The daikon radish roots act like “thousands of drills in the soil” and provide necessary aeration. The fava bean roots extend six feet deep into the soil, helping translocate deeply buried nutrients closer to the surface.

The nitrogen-fixing cover crop was planted March 1, then chopped down about three months later. While some farmers prefer to harvest their cover crops and leave the plant material on top of the soil, Butsch cuts down the plants and reincorporates the “green manure” into the soil. He tills the field and integrates the decomposing cover crop into the native dirt. The process adds biomass and helps the beneficial bacteria and fungi thrive. It also produces naturally occurring fulvic acid, a common element in organic farming that helps with nutrient uptake.

“The plants just love that fulvic acid,” Butsch says.

Roganja is allowed up to 40,000 square feet of canopy.

Growing from Seed

While the cover crop grows outdoors, Roganja raises cannabis seedlings in a nursery greenhouse that doesn’t use artificial light. About 90% of the company’s plants are started from seed rather than clones.

This year, seeds were planted March 7 and transplanted into Southern Oregon’s great outdoors in May and June. A small amount of potting soil mixed with the native soil helps ease the transition, Butsch says.

Throughout the season, a wide array of organic nutrients are used to bolster the plants as needed, including crab, fish and kelp amendments, as well as llama and chicken manure. Butsch believes diversity is key in organic farming.

“The more diversity you bring in, the more nutrients are available to the plants,” he says.

The company has had some lab tests done on soil in the past, but most of the amendments are based on intuition, Butsch says. It’s a skill that’s been honed over the years of learning the microclimate and the region’s soil.

The result is an “indoor-quality” flower produced in a sustainable, low-impact manner and currently carried by about 30 Oregon retail shops. Meanwhile, the Butsch brothers also run Massive Seeds, a separate brand focused on genetics.

Because all adults in Oregon are allowed to grow up to four cannabis plants for personal use, 10-packs of Massive Seeds are available at about 15 retail outlets and the company also sells some seeds to other commercial farmers.

Look to La Luna

Using the cycle of the moon could be a pathway to more productive plants, but scientists tend to be skeptical

By Garrett Rudolph

How do most outdoor growers determine when to plant their cannabis crops?

Like many elements of the marijuana industry, the answer varies widely from one cultivator to the next. While some stick to a set date at the beginning of the season, others rely heavily on intuition or they’ll follow an agricultural calendar of projected “frost-free days.”

And some growers abide by a higher power: the waxing and waning of the moon, a technique as old as farming itself and one with just as many fervent followers as it has science-based skeptics.

The concept is that the moon’s gravitational pull impacts moisture in plants, the soil and water table, so planting at the optimal phase helps produce healthier crops and larger yields.

Adding another layer to the complexity of the subject is that while most lunar planting calendars list favorable planting dates for a wide range of flowers and vegetables, cannabis is, not surprisingly, absent from most lists. That means growers who want to plant based on the cycle of the moon would have to find a comparable plant to use as a guideline or refine their own schedule through years of experience.

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, annual flowers and above-ground vegetables should be planted during the waxing of the moon (from the day it is new to the day it is full). The Old Farmer’s Almanac’s lunar calendar divides North America into four regions. Southern California and Florida are Area 1; Northern California and the majority of Washington and Oregon are classified as Area 2; Colorado, New England and Southern Canada are Area 3; Northern Canada is Area 4.

So for example, the “moon favorable” planting dates for tomatoes in Area 2 are March 27 to April 11, while spring wheat in the same region would be April 26 to May 7.

Flowering bulbs, biennial and perennial flowers and below-ground vegetables should be planted during the moon’s dark cycles (waning).

However, in a 1991 New York Times article, Cynthia Rosenzweig, an agronomist at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, called the benefits of lunar planting schedules “mythology”.

“There has to be a physical reason why the moon’s different phases would affect soil properties, soil temperature, moisture content, precipitation, which are the actual physical factors that make seeds germinate,” she told The Times. “And that isn’t documentable.”

Frank Abramopoulos, an astrophysicist interviewed in the same Times article, echoed Rosenzweig’s outlook on the subject.

“The tidal force — the gravitational pull of the moon — would be there, but at a level smaller than would affect any biochemical processes,” he said.

1 – Marc Cathey, the former director of the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C., was also interviewed for the Times article and said lunar planting connects modern farmers with their forebears who had to rely substantially more on weather patterns — but today’s technology and genetic improvements have lessened Mother Nature’s stranglehold over successful crop production.

“These things like planting by the zodiac and the phases of the moon were based on close observations of periods of chill and clouds and exposure to light and the ups and downs of barometric pressure,” he said. “But they were damped out by sprinklers and fertilizer and peat moss and tomato seeds that germinate so well, every dadgum one comes up.”

Yet, thousands of gardeners — both of the hobbyist and commercial variety — swear by the lunar calendar.

It’s more about the fact that planting by the moon does work — for one reason or another — not about how it works.

“While science may not fully understand why planting by the moon works, anecdotal evidence suggests that it does,” Richard Telford wrote for the Permaculture Research Institute in a 2015 article on the organization’s website.

Planting by the cycle of the moon is one of the oldest techniques in farming.

Lunar-Powered

Roganja embraces another technique that separates it from other cannabis producers: using the cycles of the moon to determine its planting schedule.

It means the growers have to pay close attention to the waxing and waning of the moon, and you’re more likely to find a copy of The Old Farmer’s Almanac being used around the Jackson County farm than you are one of the dozens of marijuana growing guides published by self-proclaimed experts.

At first blush, it might sound like hippie pot grower folk lore, but farmers have been using agricultural astrology for thousands of years.

Butsch says the difference can be seen in the “overall vigor” of the plants.

“The weather patterns seem to follow the moon cycles,” he adds. “It always seems that a nice rain will fall right after planting.”

The METRC system has been “kind of a nightmare” for farms that use a multi-harvest strategy, Butsch says.

Operations

Roganja and Massive Seeds have transitioned from Oregon’s medical program into the state’s emerging recreational market. As a Tier II outdoor grow, the company is allowed up to 40,000 square feet of canopy.

While many growers have struggled with Oregon’s strict pesticide regulations, Butsch says he likes that the state implemented such a rigorous set of guidelines.

Roganja and Massive Seeds have received the Certified Kind stamp of approval, meaning they do not use chemical pesticides and follow standards that closely mirror the USDA’s National Organic Program.

However, Oregon’s seed-to-sale tracking requirements have been a different story. Using Franwell’s METRC system has been “kind of a nightmare,” Butsch says.

While the program itself works fine, Butsch says it wasn’t really built for farms like Roganja, which uses a multi-harvest strategy, cutting down the top colas early and letting the rest of the plant continue to develop. The company may harvest a single plant multiple times, making it extremely costly and time consuming to track every gram from every plant with METRC during a process that may take a month or more.

“I think there’s a better way to still have oversight, but put a little more trust in people,” Butsch says.

Legendary Microclimate

While the Butsch brothers deserve their share of credit for Roganja’s quality crops, they acknowledge Mother Nature’s role in creating some of the country’s finest cannabis.

The Roganja and Massive Seeds gardens are located in a five-acre irrigated pasture on a 30-acre plot of land in Jackson County. It’s situated in one of the hottest parts of the Rogue Valley, and the Butsch brothers have been breeding strains specifically acclimated to the hot, dry, Upper Rogue microclimate that generally works well for sativas. Strains like Rogue Valley Wreck, Lemon Pineapple and Pineapple Pomegranate have thrived in the area.

Roganja has helped Portland State University with a study of Oregon’s cannabis terroirs and how genetic traits are adapted to geographical regions. Early research indicates six or seven different unique terroirs in Southern Oregon.

Butsch believes quality of the final product is the combination of well-suited genetics, the Rogue Valley’s legendary microclimate and use of organic farming practices.

“It’s really the land that produces the best herb,” Butsch says.

5 horrifying seeds you don’t want growing in your garden

WHILE we’re busy handing out seeds that will fill your garden with colour and delicious fruit and vegies, not everything that grows is safe to be eaten.

Telling the difference between freshly grown herbs and something less lovely is something perhaps gardening expert Costa Georgiadis could help you with?

Australia has a reputation for being populated by creatures designed specifically to ruin your day, so learning the same is true of our plant life shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Also, like our slithering, crawling and biting friends, our dangerous flora are commonly found growing in our backyards.

So here are five plants you definitely don’t want growing in your garden (but can brag about to foreigners on the internet).

5. Oleander (Nerium oleander)

Named for a passing resemblance to the olive Olea, oleander will start by irritating your skin and, if you’re somehow able to eat enough of the horrible-tasting and bitter leaves, could cause fatal symptoms.

The effects on your stomach can be quite severe, especially if a child eats it.

Oleander is a common garden plant in Australia.

4. Angel’s Trumpets (Brugmansia)

Angel’s trumpets are an attractive flower resembling a colourful flared section of a trumpet.

While the seeds and leaves are the most potent, all parts of this plant contain toxic levels of compounds antagonistic to humans.

Angel’s trumpets are common in parks and gardens around Australia (though they’re on the “maybe-we-should-ban-this” list)

3. Strychnine tree (Strychnos nux-vomica)

The Strychnine tree is native to Australia and produces a lovely-looking orange-like fruit. The fruit is poisonous.

Sadly, so is the rest of the tree, even though it was used in medications until the sheer risk of it became pointless when safer alternatives become available.

This is why Australia has a reputation.

2. Deadly Nightshade (Atropa Belladonna)

Two to five berries can be fatal to an adult human though it only takes one leaf to be lethal. Those aside the root actually wins in terms of fatal potency.

It’s the ability for nightshade to be mistaken for blueberries that makes it scary.

Like angel’s trumpets, deadly nightshade isn’t native to Australia, but it is commonly found in our gardens.

1. Gympie Gympie (Dendrocnide moroides)

The gympie stinger is native to rainforest areas in northern regions of Australia and is known for being covered in tiny hairs that cause pain like being hit with acid and electrocuted after only the tiniest of contact.

The pain from these stings can last for years.

We have better alternatives

How about some seeds that’ll brighten you garden and build its soil instead?

We’re giving away a free packet of seeds every day for three weeks, while stocks last.

The seeds will include a great selection of fruit and vegetables, herbs and flowers, allowing you to start planting a backyard patch bursting with flavour and colour.

All you need to do is cut out your daily coupon from this newspaper and take it to your local participating news-agent.

As well as giving you a great start to your garden, we’re also giving one lucky reader the chance to win a day with outdoors guru Costa Georgiadis, who will help you plan and create your ideal vegie patch.

WHILE we're busy handing out seeds that will fill your garden with colour and delicious fruit and vegies, not everything that grows is safe to be eaten.

how to avoid smelling like weed

10 Tips on How to NOT Smell Like Weed

Most smokers like the smell of weed, but that doesn’t mean they always want to walk around smelling like weed. Whatever your reason, if you want to learn some simple tips to keep from reeking of pot then you’ve found the right place.

1. Don’t Stand Downwind

If you’re smoking outside then this is the number one thing you can do to keep yourself from smelling like weed. It’s simple, I know, but we don’t always think about these things when the smoke sesh is happening. Try to stay aware of where the smoke is blowing and don’t be in that spot.

Another tip is to tilt your head up and blow the smoke into the hair. The hot smoke will rise and this will keep you from bathing in the smell. This tip is especially useful on days with no wind.

2. Ventilate, Don’t Hot Box

This is another obvious answer, but one that gets ignored pretty often anyway. If you’re smoking weed inside then do whatever you can to vent the smoke away. Here are a few tips:

  1. Open a window. Bonus points if you put a fan facing out the window. You can blow into the back of the fan and it will carry most of the smoke outside.
  2. Turn on the ceiling fan. This will make it more difficult to blow smoke rings, but it will prevent you from sitting in thick clouds of smoke in a stale room.
  3. Turn on vent fans. These are typically located above the stove, in bathrooms, and some attics.
  4. Blow the smoke up the chimney. This method doesn’t work quite as well as just blowing it out the window, but it is an option if you find yourself inside a place with no windows and a chimney.

3. Use A Smoking Jacket

This idea dates back to old men wearing a protective jacket so their clothes wouldn’t smell like cigars. While the old school style isn’t necessary it is a really good idea to keep a piece of outerwear that you can put on just to smoke. Then, when you take it off you have your fresh clothes underneath.

If possible, it would be best to completely change all your clothes, but this isn’t always a viable option.

4. Make A Sploof

Simply put, a sploof is a container that you blow smoke into to neutralize the smell. They are really easy to make with just a few household items. I’ve already written a post with detailed instructions on how to make a sploof. The quick version is you’re pretty much just stuffing dryer sheets into a paper towel roll.

5. Wash Your Hands & Eat A Mint

Your hands and breath are particularly susceptible to weed odors. Washing your hands is ideal, but if you’re going to be somewhere that isn’t possible then bring some hand sanitizer or lotion.

The mint can obviously be substituted with gum, mouthwash, or brushing your teeth.

6. Put Long Hair In A Pony Tail

Long hair can have a tendency to trap smells. Keep your hair back and away from your face where the smoke is coming from.

Whether you have long hair or short hair it might not be a terrible idea to get a smoking hat to go with your smoking jacket.

7. Keep Your Weed In A Clean, Airtight Bag

It doesn’t matter what precautions you take to not smell like weed if you’re carrying a smelling bag of weed around with you. If you really want to be safe then pick up some reusable airtight bags at a headshop or online . They’ll last a lot longer than a sandwich bag and keep the smell in better. In the end, use whatever you got but do take a moment to think if what you’re using is going to conceal the smell properly.

8. Try A Vape or Edibles

With edibles, you’re guaranteed to not smell like weed. The problem with edibles is both availability and desirability of effects. That is, some people can’t get edible, and other people don’t want edible because it’s not the same feeling as smoking.

A vape is truly a great option if you’re willing to spend the money. The truth is, good vapes aren’t very cheap. Do your research before purchasing a vape.

9. Sprays, Colognes, & Perfumes Oh My

There is no doubt that sprays can help deodorize or in most cases cover up the smell. I mostly want to give a few simple precautions.

Don’t only wear a particular body spray when you smoke. Basically, if you only wear cologne after you smoke it won’t take long for some people to notice that the smell automatically means your high. Wear the cologne, perfume, body spray, or whatever on a more consistent basis.

A special warning for Ozium . This stuff has gotten insanely popular in the smoking community. Now, I can tell you first hand that this stuff does amazing for covering up smells indoors. But, make sure you read all of the warnings that come with the spray. The stuff is super toxic. You are not supposed to go in a room for at least 20 minutes after you spray. Also, wash any areas of your skin that came in contact with Ozium. I would also take extra precautions if pets are in the house. Again, read and follow all safety instructions on the packaging.

10. Air Out

Sometimes it’s just a matter of taking some time to naturally air out the weed smell before you venture out around people. Don’t be in a rush. Take an extra moment to hang out and enjoy your high while you air out.

I hope these tips help. If you know of any tips that were not mentioned in the article then let everyone know in the comment section below.
