It’s our hope that as home growers become more common, they will talk openly about their hobby and be connected with the community… And it will become more of a norm just to give away a bunch of your end product. Yeah, really.
It only serves to help you grow as a cultivator, your fellow growers, and it’s a great way of sharing your passion by giving it away for free. ...But of course, only where you are legally able to do so.
If you ask ten growers how they like to germinate seeds, you’ll likely get 10 different answers! There are just so many methods to do it, plus many little tricks and tips if you have stubborn seeds versus fresh ones, and every method has a subcategory of some other trick to try. But which one is best?
First, let's start with the basics. If you're not familiar with the concept of "Flushing", in the context of growing your plants indoors, it refers to the process of irrigating the plant(s) with plain purified water (no nutrients or additives!) for a specific period of time prior to harvesting. It involves using a significant amount of water to flush out any accumulated nutrients, salts, and other substances from the plant's root zone.
