If you've ever picked up a juicy bud and wondered, "What gives weed its flavour…
As we welcome the December silly season, it’s also time to get some Christmas shopping done! But, what to buy your marijuana obsessed?
We spoke to our friends over at Zootly, South Africa’s best cannabis destination, to give us a few suggestions!
But always make sure to include some seeds with all your gifts this festive season.
The Tropf-Blumat (or drip-Blumat) 12 Carrot Irrigation System is perfect for cannabis growers who are nursing their plants in containers.
As Zootly put it on their product write-up:
No need to spend hours with that old, retro sprinkler set you bought because you didn’t know any better. You know, those hours where you heat up pipes to bend and fit them together. This system just slots together and works.Zootly
The system also requires no batteries or timers. This is because it uses unique ceramic sensors and utilises a process called the tensiometer principle.
There are other Blumat products in the range and they vary slightly.
The Blumat Classic uses the same cone system as the Tropf-Blumat system to dispense water, but there’s no drip. No, the Classic feeds the plant with its ceramic cone.
With the Classic the water source can come from any container, as long as the feeder is in the water.
With the Blumat Easy, the water source is a plastic bottle that you fit straight to the top of the device.
Fabric Growing Pot!
We highly recommend buying fabric pots when growing cannabis. There are tonnes of benefits.
Which the guys at Zootly have summed up nicely for us!
Zootly Fabric Growing Pots’ porous fabric provides a range of benefits that enables optimal growing conditions.
Namely air-pruning for your plant’s roots. Which encourages a healthy plant…Zootly
You can actually read more about their fabric pots, here. But what are you going to be putting into your pot? Soil!
Buying quality soil means the difference between a fantastic crop, and an alright one.
We’d strongly recommend buying a bag of Freedom Farms’ Organic Classic blend.
The Organic Classic blend is formulated mainly for organic growing practices and organic nutrients. The Classic has a high Cation exchange capacity (CEC), higher active organic matter content, as well as a balanced semi-slow release organic nutrient component.Zootly
They also wrote a piece about the importance of good soil, here.
