This week’s Homegrown PotCast is back with a slightly new format, instead of simply discussing one subject, Kronic is here to discuss two separate topics. This is an all-new format for the PotCast and we hope you love it as much as we do. Future episodes will feature interviews with major industry figures, answer questions from our community of homegrowers, and much more!

Top 10 Mistakes Made by New Growers

When it comes to your first grow, it can seem like a daunting task and many growers may be scared of making mistakes and potentially wasting money. Have no fear novice growers, Kronic is here to outline the top 10 mistakes made by new growers and also offer some advice on how to avoid these mistakes or rectify them.

Kronic notes that prior research is pretty important for growing cannabis successfully. Luckily, we have hundreds of blog posts and articles dealing with different aspects of growing cannabis over on our Grow Your Own with Kyle Kushman blog and also the Homegrown Forum which is the perfect place to ask questions and share information with your fellow cannabis cultivators! Obviously, we also release a PotCast every week … in case you were wondering.

Naturally, if you don’t get high-quality cannabis seeds from a reputable cannabis seed bank then you lower your chances of a successful grow from the start. Check out Homegrown Cannabis Co.’s great selection of autoflower seeds, feminized seeds, high THC weed seeds, and much more!

But there’s more, listen to Kronic give you a bit of guidance and provide a roadmap to help you navigate on your growing adventure and avoid mistakes.

What are Fast Version Seeds?

Fast Version Seeds are a relatively new type of seed that many may find confusing or may be unaware of what they actually are, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

Fast Version Seeds are photoperiod seeds that have been partially bred with cannabis ruderalis to bring out the growth traits of a ruderalis plant. They are not autoflowers, but they do share some similarities namely rapid growth, hence the name. Fast Versions may differ somewhat to their photoperiod counterparts, for example in terms of terpene profile, however, generally, they are similar or the same, providing the seeds are genetically stable.

Fast Version Seeds are still sensitive to light and therefore you do not treat light cycles with Fast Versions the same way as you would with autoflowers. However, when it comes to training, you treat Fast Versions in much the same way as autoflowers as they have the ruderalis traits which means they have a higher chance of turning hermaphrodite but, they also grow faster. Note, Fast Versions tend to maintain the same size as regular photoperiods, unlike autoflowers which generally grow smaller.

Fast Version Seeds are a great way for growers to harvest multiple times in a year and also experiment with ruderalis, for those who are unsure of autoflowering seeds, we recommend you try Fast Version seeds to get a taste!

If you want to know more about Fast version seeds then we implore you to listen to the PotCast below. Check out these Fast Versions of some legendary cannabis strains:
