Madd catches us up on everything he's been doing since his last appearance, from taking care of family life to digging in to his next "Wicked" line- Madd has had some incredible projects in the works! He discusses some of his strains including maddgically delicious, as well as some of his most impressive new selections from the brand new wicked line.

The great and talented Rhizo Rich from www.illinoiscannaconsulting.com joins GrowCast to discuss a hot topic in the world of cannabis growing semantics; "organic" cannabis production! Rich begins by giving us a quick overview of the harvest he just took down, taking a special moment to shout out a couple strains that blew him away- including 10th Planet by Ethos, and also K'Smores by Prolific Coast, the latter of which should be appearing on GrowCast soon! Then Jordan proceeds to give an overview of the word organic as he sees it, specifically breaking it down into three separate definitions; organic cannabis cultivation, organic as defined by chemistry, and also organic certifications that exist in many different industries. Jordan talks about his research in the world of coffee certifications, and stresses how having a variety of affordable certifications is highly beneficial to both the producer and the consumer. Rich gives his thoughts on the semantics of organic growing, and shares an interesting point about water not meeting the chemistry definition of an organic compound. The guys wrap up the show by talking about water quality, as well as Rhizo Rich's upcoming supersoil challenge where he plants on growing the same cut in a dozen different supersoils in order to compare their performance! ---GrowPass Member Registration is OPEN!

The great and powerful Wolfman returns for an episode of GrowCast, to talk all things growing and grow gear. Jordan regales Wolfman with a recap of his semi-recent interview about grow light components with Rod from Cultilux, and asks Wolfman if he's observed a reduction in grow light component quality over the past year- especially since the pandemic. Wolfman weighs in on overall grow gear quality coming out from all parts of the world, and talks about how sometimes there are simply bad batches of product. He talks about some of the cycles he sees businesses go through in the grow industry as they start out, become popular, expand, and then often dip in quality. Then Wolfman and Jordan both give detailed examples of what they would consider their absolute dream grows. Wolfman talks about his ideal setup, a big grow with big old gas lights and lots of production- a classic Wolfman operation! Jordan on the other hand discusses the different needs that those creating content for the cannabis space require, and discusses how cool it would be to have a grow operation specifically dedicated to split testing. ---GrowPass Member Registration is OPEN!

Long time friend of GrowCast Marybeth Sanchez returns to the show to pay a little less attention to IPM and microbes (but still quite a bit of attention) and focus more on growing talk! Marybeth shares what she finds to be some of the most important lessons she can impart on growers, no matter their skill level. She talks about the importance of starting off on the right foot, and the crucial step of establishing a healthy, vigorous plant when it's very young. Then the conversation turns towards calcium, and Marybeth drops a very interesting knowledge bomb regarding common soil inputs like gypsum, that actually harm the microbiology- saying that she instead likes to derive her calcium from oyster shell products. Marybeth wraps up the show talking about the best character traits a grower can exhibit, with an emphasis on the need for positivity when it comes to living the life of a farmer. ---Proud partners of Buxton Hollow Farms, high quality all natural soil amendments!
