    🦏Strain Breakdowns, Pancakes, Hawaiian Cultivars, and Heavy Feeders, with Rhizo Rich

    🦏Strain Breakdowns, Pancakes, Hawaiian Cultivars, and Heavy Feeders, with Rhizo Rich

    The great and powerful Rhizo Rich is back on the podcast- having just dug himself from the grave after a bout with the kahuna virus, the Rhino returns! Today Jordan and Rich do a couple deep dive reviews into recent strains that they've cultivated. From the doughy, sweet and syrupy Pancakes that Rhizo Rich just did an open pollination with, to the Hawaiian cultivars that Jordan just took down. Rich also discusses more about the GAWD cut that he was super impressed with during his pheno hunt, and how he will almost certainly be working with that female in the future. Jordan talks about the Molokai Citrus Kush and how impressed he was with the exotic yet non traditional tropical terpenes that were expressed- this leads to a conversation about heavy feeding cultivars, and how to keep up with those monster eaters in your grow tent!

    The man with the mat is BACK! Great friend of the show Michael Box joins the program again for an update on all things Sustainable Village. Michael gives us an update on his bottomless pot tech, and how the team is still dialing in cap mats to work with this interesting plug and play soil bed style. This leads to a conversation about new BluMat technology, where they are allowing the carrots to trigger a circuit to activate a solenoid switch- allowing for a high outflow of water for irrigation... Michael discusses the new irrometers available on his website, and how they differ from a traditional hygrometer - being far more accurate at measuring actual soil water tension, but also far more delicate and frail. Finally Michael also gives us a little history lesson when it comes to the BluMat system, and highlights a story where the owners visited his headquarters all the way from Austria!

    Brand new guest Bless Coast Seeds is on the podcast! Tune in to this awesome breeder feature as we enter Cultivar-gust for a whole month of strain and cultivar discussion! Bless Coast talks about what brought him into the world of seedmaking and breeding. He talks about what he focuses on when making selections, and what traits he likes to look for when he's going through extensive hunts. This leads to a conversation about intersex stability, and how much you can or cannot expect a specific strain of cannabis to hold stable and not throw pollen under any environmental circumstances. The boys also discuss the future of cannabis breeding and genetic variation- leading to a conversation about CRISPR and where gene editing could fit into the cannabis breeding world.
