To awaken every morning with irenic mentality seems like an orbit that is ambitious to stock. The simple distraction of everyday life tends to bend composition into gimmick, and in turn disrupts one’s ability to adapt, evolve, and progress. For me, cultivation revealed the true tides of wellbeing. Entering the garden, I learned to replicate mother nature, is a cyclic task forced into reality through the ecology of growth.
I didn’t start using a computer to my advantage until I reached college. At this point in time, the circadian rhythm of my habits mimicked those around me and, as you could imagine, where no wear near there bloom. From here I have learned the daily habit of doing all that is healthy for your mind, body, and sole is undoubtably the best way to accomplish well rounded health. Sleeping, nutrition, and cleanliness, all lead to positive vibrations which in turn creates synergy that is universal and with practice can potentiate any given value.
The cannabis garden is no outlier. Up and down with the sun, a farmer must obtain royal habits to stay on top of the field. To express its optimal potential and reach top quality fruition, a garden must maintain a steady schedule within parameters focused on success. As summer days shorten towards fall and reach a twelve-hour photoperiod, cannabis will move from vegetative growth into a flower cycle to reproduce mature seed into the ground before the winter freezes, so that a sprout can shoot at the dawn of spring. Growth closer to the Equator provides year-round photoperiods prime for annual flower production and the goal is to mimic this cycle indoors globally. In these perfect growth regions, rain is abundant, timely, and falls on rich soil in turn providing a premium environment for rhizosphere development. Advanced and well measured fertigation and irrigation technologies correlated to studied nutrient programs are key to successful feeding.
It took quite a few years living on my own to learn how to feed myself and the crucial nature of keeping my surrounding environment clean and healthy. Laws are starting to change with medical grade testing taking shape and enough crop loss had occurred to educate the ignorant, a cannabis cultivator quickly learns that the hygiene of every person and tool that is involved can mitigate the risk of failed testing and crop loss from infestation or infection. Not only should immaculate sanitation be in place but other protocols as well. Man traps for employee entrance, uniforms, proper cleaning quarters and proven Integrated Pest & Mold Management (IPM) programs are a few factors to lock down. With pharmaceutical grade standards at mind, governed technical laboratories with strategy towards healthy living habits become successfully rotational in nature.
As maturation occurs across time and bountiful fruition takes place, the reward associated is of value. To advance my own circadian rhythm based on the study of producing a blossom is a value I am happy to hold. The natural rhythm of maintaining a well-balanced garden has taught me how to live a well-balanced life. Although there are hundreds of parameters to factor, indoor cannabis cultivation in complete symbiosis is attainable through the simple practice of rhythm and, as the garden grows, automation can help you keep the beat.
