    Microbiology, Organic Nutrient Delivery, Humic Acids, and More, with Tim from Cultured Biologix

    On the line from Cultured Biologix, microbiology and organic fertilizer expert Tim join the program to talk about the inception of his line, the importance of carbon in cannabis farming, and more. Tim discusses how carbon is often overlooked in his mind as a necessary soil input that is drastically underutilized in traditional agriculture. He extrapolates on the liberal use of humic acids, and the benefit that comes from applying this form of carbon to the soil with regularity. He also talks about where his work differs from that of traditional academic agriculture, and how he is specifically working on formulations for cannabis production. Tim also dives deep into sourcing of humic acid, and what it means to get a high quality humic and fulvic product. He also shares a story about a grower who is mixing two different organic nutrient lines (FOOP and Cultured) to see amazing results in his cannabis garden...

    GrowCast is coming to Oklahoma City! GC listener meetup scheduled for Friday, January 21st. Join The Green List to keep up to date on location and time!
    To wrap up Worldwide December and transition into Grow Gear January, we've got Photontek Lighting's Martim on the line all the way from Portugal! Martim joins the show for an incredible podcast all about grow light science, how horticultural lighting is manufactured, and the future of lighting. Martim talks about the European lighting powerhouse Lumatek, and how the company evolved and changed multiple times- including with the creation of Photontek. Martim goes on to discuss why he settled on the PTK designs that they have, and why things like component choice and spectrum determine how grow lights perform differently. He also gives a fascinating take on the future of grow lighting, insisting that artificial intelligence, or specifically machine learning, will be the key to understanding and unlocking the optimal processes of lighting and cultivating cannabis plants.

    BONUS: 🦏Transitioning to LED from HID, Product Reviews, and 2021 Strain Recap, with Rhizo Rich

    To wrap up Worldwide December and move into Grow Gear January, Team Member Rhizo Rich jumps on the podcast to reminisce about the 2021 grow year. Rich and Jordan discuss some of the best grow products that dropped in 2021, all the soils Rich tried, and more. Rich also talks about switching entirely to LEDs, and the temperature changes that come with it. This leads to a conversation about leaf surface temperature, and how you may need to alter your grow to help with lower LED temps. Jordan and Rich also prognosticate on the future of grow light technology, as more on board interfaces show up on the market. The guys also dive into the best strains they grew and smoked over 2021, including our very own Peach Typhoon, as well as some stunningly delicious autoflowers that they tried...

    🇿🇦South African Cannabis Strains, Heirloom Varieties, and Other "Dagga" Topics, with Hugo from The Grobro (Worldwide December)

    🇿🇦South African Cannabis Strains, Heirloom Varieties, and Other "Dagga" Topics, with Hugo from The Grobro (Worldwide December)

    For the next episode of Worldwide December we are headed all the way to Port Elizabeth, South Africa- this time to speak with long time cultivator and grow store owner Hugo! Hugo owns The Grobro in Port Elizabeth, and shares an overview of the entire South African cannabis scene. He goes on to discuss some of the most popular South African strains, such as those who were proliferated like Durban Poison, but also some of the nearby landrace strains from places like Malawi and others. He also shares the fable of the Rooibaard or "Redbeard" strain local to Southern Africa, but insists that it's hard to find the authentic, true Rooibaard genetics. Hugo also dives into how he deals with the wicked South African climate, from whippping winds to humid sea air- and he also reveals the types of pests he battles in SA, which funnily enough are the same cannabis pests we deal with worldwide!

Joey Onelove ,

Great cannabis growing conversation!

Jordan River, is the man! I love growcast! It’s a really good podcast with great conversation! This podcast hits all areas of growing cannabis and has interviews with all different kinds of interesting people on the show. I don’t think this is like a how to podcast but more of general cultivating conversation ya know? Not true for all of the episodes. Some are really informative on how to do some things. Always talking about something interesting and learning something new that I didn’t know prior to listening. Bottom line, if you enjoy cannabis podcasts, idk y you haven’t checked out growcast yet!

Grow cast is one of my favorite!

Easy to listen to and very informative. I would recommend to anyone interested in growing from beginners to experts. Growcast could be my favorite pod cast at this time.

Jordan is a liar and has no career cannabis experience. I know him personally.
