Here’s what Jeff had to say:
Horticulture Instructor, Oaksterdam University
What seeds are you excited for?
I am fond of recommending and growing varieties that produce well-rounded plants with new tastes and smells.
Do you typically grow from seed? If so, why?
No, but I have done so with Oaksterdam University students over the years often.
What does your grow setup look like these days?
A simple 4′ x 4′ area light up with LED lights in a larger room that I have found no need for AC to cool.
What has been your experience growing autoflowers?
To me, this is the best reason to grow from seed. They only come this way and are getting better varieties all the time.
Are there certain types of cannabis or specific cultivars that do well where you grow in Oakland?
We have a mix of urban growers that are survivors. Many obstacles to keep from having a successful harvest in tight city living. I grow inside due to this better neighborhood policy. I find fewer issues arise with having long-term success. But I do know a few good areas that have outdoor gardens with little to no worry for either the garden or neighbors with bad smells.
