Growing Major?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by jdav, May 4, 2011.

  1. I don't think this goes in the growing section. Correct me if I'm wrong. But if I want to grow in Cali or somewhere, and my mother wants me to go to college while I'm there, what should I be majoring in? Something more specific than Agriculture, please. Is there even a certain branch of majors that deal with plant labor and what not?
    If that was hard to follow, my bad. I just realize that cannabis growers tend to be sooo knowledgeable about their job (rightfully). I didn't know if that knowledge comes from years of experience or if they were taught all their garden knowledge from a type of school or something.
  2. you could go to a place like oaksterdam but most people grow using info from the net & RL experience i would imagine.
  3. I guess the best major would be Botany.
  4. Medicinal Botanist or something along those lines.

  5. I thought about botany but it seemed like everything in that is more of a science view than a grow. Like, more about effects of plants than the job of bringing it to life :(

    And Alex, I hadn't heard of Oaksterdam before now. Their website just got me. I now begin my path to Oaksterdam! haha
  6. Horticulture all the way

    EDIT: just read the thread, trust me botany is what you're looking for. if you want to be a good grower its fundamental to know the science behind it. i might minor in that myself, it's actually really interesting.
  8. To make a plant grow well, you must understand the basics of what makes a plant.

    Take a major that feels right for you, eventually you'll settle on one that works. However, take an intro botany course while working towards whatever other degree you want.

    Intro botany courses provide the knowledge necessary to sustain plant life, as well as enough genetic knowledge to successfully breed plants. Those who want to grow mj tend to learn from the internet and books, but a single intro class will provided you with a good knowledge base, as well as a good understanding of the somewhat complex jargon of plants.

    The growing of weed is learned with patience, trial and error, research, and time. The only thing that can teach you to grow, is growing.
  9. Botany and horticulture
  10. Marijuana 101
  11. Its called the school of hard knocks!! Ya gotta learn from your mistakes. Even the best growers started at the beginning. Good luck!!
  12. Okay. So I'm thinking a major in Horticulture and Minor in Botany. Should be plenty to learn haha. Thanks for all the help guys.

  13. This. I want to take some classes on it. But I've wanted to well before I smoked.
