ommon grow time is 3 to
4 months. All this is dependent on the strain that you choose. Pure
Sativa can run anywhere into the 6 - 9 month bracket. Indica can
flower in 6 weeks. As you can image a Sativa/Indica plant will fall into
the 2 - 4 month flowering period.

What is propagation?
Propagation: 1 The action of breeding or multiplying by natural
processes; procreation, generation, reproduction. 2 The action of
spreading an idea, practice, etc., from place to place. 3 Increase in
amount or extent; enlargement; extension in space or time.
Propagation is 'The Grow'. However most people treat
propagation as the actual events occurring between the planting of the
seed and the transplant of that seedling to the main grow environment.
Here we will treat propagation as the entire process of growing from
seed to harvest. Propagation also includes the logistics of the grow.
So what are you going to do? Are you going to buy a batch of
10 seeds and grow them all in one go? Are you going to then kill the
males and just smoke the females? Are you going to keep the males
and produce more seeds from the females? How many seeds can a
female plant produce? Should I plant my 10 seeds in one go? What
should I do to guarantee that all my seeds will grow? These are the
questions that you should be asking before you begin to grow and this
is where propagation logistics comes into play. The answers depend
largely on the size of your grow area and what your budget is.
Let’s say we have about $200/£180 to spend on seeds. We can
buy an expensive strain like a G13 cross and then we can grow the
G13 and produce more seeds from it. We can get anything between
100 and 2000 seeds depending on plant size and grow conditions. If
we grow this season for 4 months and at the end produce a lot of seeds
then we may never need to buy seeds for this strain again.
There is something else we can do called - CLONING.
Figure 3.1 - Here are some clones by Slowhand.
This is a technique whereby we can grow a number of plants
and select a good female. Then we can take cuttings from that female
mother plant and grow these cuttings into new plants. Clones always
keep the same sex and vigor of the mother plant. It is also possible to
create a garden of plants that will last for decades through cloning
from a single female mother plant. Cloning is discussed in detail in a
For the new grower it is advised that you buy 10 seeds and
only germinate 3 the first time followed by another 3 the following
week followed by the last 4 in two weeks after that. This will allow you
some degree of experimentation as you may fail on your first attempt
to germinate the seeds because of lack of any previous cannabis
For people who have germinated seeds once before in the
past, it is advised th

beer, and wine, on those very occasions in which the drinker also drinks them; drinking
alcohol and smoking pot are not disjunctive and mutually exclusive activities. The very
people who use one often use the other as well on those occasions when it may seem more
appropriate. In fact, marijuana smokers are more likely to drink alcoholic beverages than
nonsmokers are.* It is entirely possible that the legalization and widespread availability of
marijuana will not necessarily result in a greater number of total events in which people
wish to become intoxicated simply because users will continue to use pot selectively as
they presently do. They become high when they feel that the occasion calls for it and use
the same (potentially intoxicating) substances that the rest of society does, in moderation,
when they feel that the occasion calls for that as well. However, it is an empirical question
which can not be answered beforehand as to whether those specific occasions where
alcohol is now consumed without intoxication will eventually call for marijuana use. I
suspect that potsmokers will continue to follow the same sorts of patterns in liquor
consumption that their nonsmoking peers do, drinking their beer, wine, and sherry as a
pleasant companion to other pleasant activities. The appropriateness of one's agent of
choice is defined by the social group that uses it, and many occasions do not call for
But what of the other side? What social costs do we have to consider when examining
the damages the present policy is causing? To begin with an issue most Americans assume
that they are hard-headed and pragmatic about—money and resources—we would have to
admit that the present policies are extremely costly. The deployment of huge numbers of
law enforcement officers in the effort to stop pot use and sales necessarily takes resources
away from heroin and amphetamine traffic. In this sense, the present laws encourage the
use of truly dangerous drugs. And the court costs of processing a single marijuana case
can be, and often are, staggering, and the number of cases handled every year in this
country are beginning to run over l00,000. How many millions of dollars do we feel is
worth spending? In addition, the laws contribute to a great deal of resentment on both

sides. The police realize that they are enforcing a law without ideological support from
large segments of the public. The murderer never questions the right of the police to arrest
him; the marijuana user questions the legitimacy of the law, and thus, the police and the
entire legal process. By multiplying the areas in which the police are expected to enforce
the law, a variety of paranoia develops among the police—in Jerome Skolnick's terms,46
they begin to see "symbolic assailants" in the populace. In the sense that they would be
able to concentrate on truly dangerous
