    Breeder Feature: Covert Genetics

    Breeder Feature: Covert Genetics

    Today we get back on the Breeder Feature train- this time Jordan is on the line with the one and only Covert Genetics! Covert talks about his journey into the breeding world, coming from a conservative Midwestern culture and eventually excelling in the Colorado cannabis scene with his emphasis on gaseous terpene profiles. Covert talks about probably the most prolific cross he's produced; the Chem Brulee. He expands upon what makes the strain one of his favorites, what growers can expect from it, and the F2 work he's currently doing with it. Covert goes on to cover a range of his offerings, and also discusses his potent and stinky #ismellgas line. Covert wraps up the show by sharing what he considers to be the most important things for a beginner breeder to focus on, and he also offers the GrowCast listeners some very generous limited time deals...

    PGRs, Outdoor Growing, Seed Starting, and More, with Queen of the Sun

    Good friend of GrowCast and creator of Queen of the Sun Consulting Alexandria is back on the show for a classic growchat episode covering a range of topics! The Queen gives an update on her farm and what's been happening in the California cannabis scene, which leads to a conversation about starting seeds for full term outdoor runs. The conversation turns towards her new experiments on her farm which includes trying to grow the largest plants she's ever grown using a regenerative in ground planting method. Then Jordan and Alexandria discuss the very hot topic that is known as PGRs- plant growth regulators. Queen explains the misuse of the term, expounding upon some of the common PGRs we encounter in our gardens every day- while also emphasizing the real dangers of some of the harmful, chemical, synthetically produced PGRs found in grow products that are actually being banned more and more.

    Heart and Soil Returns to Discuss Afghan Lines, Germination, Landraces, and More

    Heart and Soil Returns to Discuss Afghan Lines, Germination, Landraces, and More

    Great friend of the show and prolific breeder Brett from Heart and Soil Project is back on the podcast! Today he's dropping by to give us a full-blown preview of his incredible Afghani line. Brett runs down the entire list of crosses he's releasing, and he also goes in-depth about the Afghani heirloom itself, what he selected for, and what traits it displayed. He goes on to share his thoughts on landrace varieties' biggest strengths, and what he looks for when on the hunt for the next landrace to cross. Brett also talks about breeding with intention, and makes an interesting point in that no matter what your values are as a breeder or grower, you are technically always judging by your own palette- your own preferences and likes. Brett wraps up the show by talking about popping seeds, and gives a very interesting overview of his views and practices on seed germination.

    Cultivation Techniques, Plant Training, and Old School Cannabis, with Marybeth Sanchez

    Cultivation Techniques, Plant Training, and Old School Cannabis, with Marybeth Sanchez

    GrowCast Team Member and IPM specialist Marybeth Sanchez returns to the podcast for an episode detailing her cannabis growing style! Marybeth is a regenerative agriculture and pest specialist, but today's show is about her favorite cannabis cultivation techniques. She discusses her recent foray into autoflowers, and discusses her recent run with Mandalorian Genetics' Anvil. The conversation turns towards her favorite method of plant training, and Marybeth talks about the old school gardener training mentality she still utilizes today. She also makes an interesting observation regarding genetics and specifically the size of seeds from modern breeders- remarking that old school "brick weed" tended to carry the biggest fattest seeds you'll find. Marybeth wraps up the show by talking about her specific local; The Emerald Triangle, and how it has changed and evolved over the years- largely due to the rapidly expanding cannabis cultivation industry.
