Tyler from Kansas, all about autoflowering cannabis plants
Tyler joins me from Kansas to talk all about being a closet-closet (not a typo - gotta listen) autoflower cannabis grower and how he got started consuming cannabis. As a “late bloomer” that found the only true relief from his medical issues from cannabis, and then started growing his own cannabis to relieve that pain, Tyler’s story and the message should hit home for a lot of listeners. This is the type of interview that I continue to do what I do and help growers learn to become self-sufficient. This was a perfectly timed interview because I had a ton of questions to ask that came up during our most recent GrowPass “Ask-Us-Anythings” and I got Tyler’s take on all of them. The topics covered range from plant training & topping, light cycles, up potting, and more. Essentially, when it comes to growing autoflowers, the question really is how must stress can a plant endure. That brings us into the conversation about autoflower genetics and the variances that a grower can experience when growing autoflower cannabis plants. Tyler will be joining our Slack Channel on June 26th at 10am EST if you want to chat about this episode or have questions about growing autoflowering cannabis strains. Join us in Slack HERE!
