History of our Cannabis Garden
Considering that 1998 we have supplied precise, objective information and facts about all elements of Cannabis and hemp and have cultivated a gorgeous organic flowering garden in our basement. Considerably like the Cannabis College itself, the garden has gone by way of quite a few adjustments more than the years, from the quantity of plants and the layout to our selection of cannabis nutrients and develop strategies.
In the early days the Cannabis College garden hosted about one particular hundred little plants, but was lowered in size shortly thereafter to a show of 5 enormous plants (roughly 3 months in vegetation each and every). The indoor Cannabis College garden reflects, and is contingent upon, the tolerated allowance of outside plants in The Netherlands, at present set at a maximum of 5 plants.
Some of you may recall the common Amsterdam basement (lengthy and low-ceilinged) had been cleared out in order to supply extra space for our plants and guests. With enormous stone basins spread out by way of the basement that would hold our gorgeous plants.
The purpose we had to restrict the public’s access to the plants is unfortunately our history of contamination from prying hands. Presenting a controlled setting also permits us to examine strains in diverse increasing environments and thereby supply extra in depth information and facts.
We decided to construct small ‘grow rooms’ in order to demonstrate cultivation strategies that are quickly gaining recognition. This also permitted us to show our guests the actual diverse stages of cultivation.
Simply because the cannabis market has taken such a leap forward. And every day new items/tips are introduced to an currently quick increasing marketplace. In 2018 we decided we also had to update and a develop along. Resulting in a fresh new paint job for the upstairs and upgrading/reconfiguring our develop rooms in a way that we minimise (temperature) influences and illnesses from outdoors.
With regards to technologies, the plants are nonetheless (and often will be) cultivated in an organic style, which means that they are grown in soil with organic nutrients and organic pesticides. Our smallest room currently consists of a LED (Light Emitting Diode) develop in flower, while the flowering plants in the bigger room are enjoying 600 or extra watts of HPS (Higher Stress Sodium) light each and every, all below Lumatek digital ballasts. All plants commence under 400w MH (Metal Halide) lights in our vegetation area, a new addition to the layout, usually with a range of strategies applied to manage the shape and size of each and every plant.
Considerably of what is on show in our garden has been grown using donations from wholesalers, retailers and organic nutrient organizations. Far more information and facts on each and every of these generous organisations is accessible in the hyperlinks section of this site.
