A friend of mine decided he was sick of paying for herb and the only way around this was to grow his own. So, he got a seed from some decent herb, paper toweled it, and planted it with (3) 32-watt CFL's. He had done absolutely no research prior to this because the grow was done on a whim, which is the way he is. As the plant started to grow, he started to read. So much information out there! He decided to try some LST in the form of bending the main stalk and tying down, etc. The main stalk broke and he thought the plant was going to die. Then it started growing, slowly, with 4 main stalks. He continued to read and tie down, getting a few more "main" stalks. The growth is just insanely slow, though! 50 some odd days later, he is much more well read, and ready to take on a hydroponic setup. (Bubbler Bucket, thanks to RumpleForeskin!) He is getting a 400W HPS light and will be using the Lucas feeding method, using FloraMicro and FloraBloom. The only problem here is that he is very attached to this plant, it being his first and him spending literally hours with it. Can he submerge the whole rootball, soil and all, in water, to loosen the dirt from the roots to allow for transition to the Bubbler Bucket? Sorry for the long intro, I have not made too many posts here and just registered recently, and just wanted to give you guys a little background information about what we have going on!
