    🦴Calcium: Intracellular Exchange, Calcium Waves, and Cannabis Calcium Consumption, with Nik

    🦴Calcium: Intracellular Exchange, Calcium Waves, and Cannabis Calcium Consumption, with Nik

    Nik from Rooted Leaf is BACK to continue our individual nutrient explorations- this time focusing on CALCIUM. Nik explains how calcium is absorbed and utilized by the plant, and how cannabis calcium consumption changes throughout the cannabis grow cycle. He goes on to expound on different forms of applicable calcium, and compares the sources based on solubility, nitrogen content, and more. Nik goes on to explain a few mind blowing phenomena involving calcium; the first being the intracellular exchange of calcium - making it pretty agile for an immobile nutrient - and also the production of calcium waves that originate from a point of stress and ripple throughout the plants entire cellular being. Nik also talks about the upcoming INDUSTRY NIGHT and GROW CLASS (with Jordan River speaking) which you can find tickets to at www.rootedleaf.com (code growcast for 20% off products)

    🅽Nitrogen and Cannabis Cultivation, with Nik from Rooted Leaf

    🅽Nitrogen and Cannabis Cultivation, with Nik from Rooted Leaf

    We are starting a whole new episode series about plant nutrition! Nik from Rooted Leaf (use code growcast) is back on the show to explore minerals individually- starting with nitrogen! Nik explains how complex the many roles that nitrogen plays actually are, while emphasizing that 80% of your nitrogen goes towards a few primary processes. This leads to a conversation about the rubisco enzyme, and how nitrogen plays into photosynthesis and energy production. Nik also explains how nitrogen deficiency and toxicity work, and how too high levels of nitrogen can lead to nutrient burn. This leads to a conversation about how nitrogen moves throughout media and throughout nature- and how it acts when we water to runoff. Nik extrapolates on the difference in nitrogen needs between the vegetative stage and the flowering stage, and how the balance of nitrogen in the bloom cycle is extremely delicate... Stay tuned for more mineral deep dives with Nik coming to this feed soon!

    🧬 VIROIDS: Identifying, Understanding, and Eliminating Cannabis Virals, with Kevin McKernan

    🧬 VIROIDS: Identifying, Understanding, and Eliminating Cannabis Virals, with Kevin McKernan

    Follow along with our viroid resource at www.growcastpodcast.com/viroid

    Contributor to the Human Genome Project and cannabis viral expert Kevin McKernan debuts on the show for a DEEP DIVE into viral cannabis pathogens! Kevin starts by breaking down the science of what a viroid is, how it differs from a virus, and what it's role in the natural world is. He discusses hop latent viroid in cannabis, and explains the mechanisms by which it replicates itself using the plant's energy, and stops the expression of desirable traits like potency, terpene expression, and more. This leads to a conversation about the hops industry, where instead they opted to breed cultivars that would carry the virus but resist it- as opposed to the cannabis approach of testing for viruses and culling any positives. Kevin wraps up the show by talking about tobacco mosaic virus, why it's so misdiagnosed, and just how many varieties there are of these types of plant virals...
