Hello guys, I'm a cannabis researcher, writer, editor and blogger but to be honest I suck at growing.

I'm hoping to meet new people, learn from them and perhaps share a little bit of what I know. I was a language professor for 20 years so sharing knowledge is of paramount importance to me.

Free the plant!

Thanks! I'll be checking them out! I need to improve my growing skills but I'm constantly traveling and that makes growing a bit more Been thinking of sharing my blog here
6 Ways To Smoke Weed Without Smelling Or Being Caught
My name SOS means: Survival and Optimization System, that's why I chose that topic in particular but there are a couple of posts more I would like to share and perhaps get some input? It's a collaboration and having other people's perspective would be awesome

Traveling absolutely makes things challenging. I am going to try an ebb & flow system next year to help automate the process a bit. I am on the go a lot too so this would be a huge help. I will check out your writing too.

Thanks, yes I've been thinking of automating but I suck at growing as it is, dnt know if I'll be that much better doing advanced stuff before improving my basics, but I might have to give it a go

I suck at it too, but luckily lots of YouTube videos seem to get me to where I need to be. I tried with just tomatoes this year but next year I will give it a shot and see where it goes. I was watching a new channel that is using Rasberry Pi's and he seems to be doing some really cool stuff with automating.

Yes YouTube sure helps, tomatoes are hard, they are a delicate fruit, how did it go? I grew some nice ones but then they got some kind of gnats and lost that plant, raspberry sounds tasty, have you tried it?

It went okay. I did the Krakey (spelling?) method using food grade buckets. I wanted to learn how to do the nutrients and managing the growth cycle. I have Roma tomatoes, but the plants look a bit rough. I think automating it and managing pH and feeding schedules would make a world of difference. I started them in the grow tent and moved them outside in June. I would say I had success. I will eat one next week. They are just turning red here.
