2.) Impressive Auto-Flower Grow Video

"The Most Amazing Autoflower Grow Ever Recorded!!!- LED, DWC, THINK DIFFERNT" by DrAutoFlower

(I have no control over the music)

Many growers write in to with questions about auto-flowering strains of marijuana. These strains go through their whole life cycle "on their own," and don't need light and dark periods to tell them when to start growing buds.

These strains tend to be higher in CBD, which can be very medicinal. However, auto-flowering strains often produce very low yields compared to non-auto-flowering strains, partially because their auto-flowering nature takes away a lot of your control as the grower over the size of your plants.

This video proves that you can get great yields with an auto-flowering strain of marijuana.


3.) 52 Minutes of Outdoor Growing Training

"Marijuana: A Grower's Lot" by Kog

4.) Quick! Get Started! Germinating Marijuana Seeds Via the Paper Towel Method

"Germinating seeds in paper towels" by Rodrigo0DCHow to germinate seeds with paper towels video

This method works great for marijuana. Remember, marijuana seeds should NOT get light during the germination process. If you don't want to use plastic sandwich bags, you can use the exact same method, but just place the paper towels between 2 plates.

5.) Grow Short and Bushy Plants: How to FIM and Top Marijuana Plants

"How to F.I.M and Top Your Marijuana Plant" by Grow420Guide
How to FIM and Top your marijuana plant video
Warning: Short commercial at beginning

This video describes and show two methods growers use to get additional colas (so you have a wide bushy plant instead of a tall plant with a single cola).

The two techniques are known as topping and FIMing. At GWE, we've covered both methods extensively and they both work extremely well to get your plants to grow multiple colas.

This grower likes to top then FIM his plants. At GWE, we believe both work great though we generally recommend FIMing since it is less stressful to the plant, and creates 4 colas instead of just 2 like topping.

You can FIM multiples times, and it doesn't slow down the plant's growth as much as topping does.

Check It Out!

Nebula Haze holding her time-worn Magic Flight Launch Box. It still works as good as the day I got it!Nebula here.

I first bought a Magic Flight Launch Box in May 2010, and 2 years later I still use my MFLB regularly.

Read my full review of the MFLB (along with a training video on how to get the most out of vaping with this little vaporizer):

The Magic Flight Launch Box is one of the most portable and discreet electronic vaporizers available.

Why I love my MFLB

  • Totally discrete, does not look like a smoking device
  • Vapor does not really smell like marijuana
  • Small enough to fit inside the palm of your hand or inside a pocket
  • Comes with a convenient carrying case, like a little lunch box
  • Instead of using butane or flame, this handheld unit runs off rechargeable AA batteries
  • Start vaporizing within 10 seconds
  • Lifetime Warranty (though you probably don't even need it). I bought mine more than 2 years ago, and as you can see from the pic, the sticker on the box is peeling. However, the MFLB itself works as awesome as the day I bought it. I still use it all the time, and it's always ready to vape in 10-12 seconds.

Just do yourself a favor and get yourself extra batteries! If you're anything like me, you'll end up using this baby a lot!

Though many different batteries can work with the MFLB, I recommend getting spare batteries from the MFLB people for best results.
