Miracle grow cannabis experiment

“I told everyone ‘We’re doing it,’” Hagedorn said to Forbes. “‘If you don’t like it, leave. We’re doing it. It’s beyond stopping. And we’re not getting into pot growing. We’re talking dirt, fertilizer, pesticides, growing systems, lights. You know it’s a multibillion-dollar business, and we’ve got no growth in our core. Are you guys stupid?’”

“The greenhouse supply business, it’s a business we very much understand, and we’re the best in the world at,” said Hagedorn. “Hawthorne is going to be better than our [professional horticulture] business was at supplying a very unique specialized market, which is cannabis growers.”

“Dude, I have a ton of respect for you,” he said. “But I think that’s total bullshit.”

Hagedorn has been betting big on weed since 2013. That’s when, according to a colorful 2016 profile in Forbes, Hagedorn wandered into a Washington state garden store, where a shopkeeper told him that “everyone called him an idiot when he first started selling hydroponics equipment, but the stuff was flying off the shelves, with an average receipt of $400—straight cash.”

That said, the younger Hagedorn acknowledged a few months ago that Hawthorne was still figuring out how to serve Big Weed.

Any of these fertilizers will grow well if you don’t exceed the rates and frequency. The houseplant rates of 1 tsp/gal is the rate to use. It sounds like you know how to figure PPM, if not here is the breakdown for the ferts you listed: This is for 1 tsp/gal

20-20-20= 260ppm N, 260ppm P, 260ppm K for 781ppm total
25-10-10= 325ppm N,130ppm P, 130ppm K for 585ppm total
15-30-15= 195ppm N, 390ppm P, 195ppm K for 780ppm total
10-52-10= 130ppm N, 677ppmP, 130ppm K for 937 ppm total

This is a pretty good balance of fertilizers and with the addition of epsom or cal mag and any other minor elements missing from your choice of ferts this will grow good plants for a very small amount of money and your ppm will be in a good range as the plant matures to finish. If it sounds like Super Sasquatch Scat, it probably is. Any well balanced fertilizer will grow good plants.


I have several strains that I can use, green bud and mendo madness clones, and I have some NL#5 and NLxhaze also. I’m thinking abouut a more indica dominant strain, but I honestly have no idea what to expect. I will probably go with a strain called Mama Mia by Seedsman.
