Q: Hey there, Joni2017. Congrats on winning the 1st place in Diary of the Month! How are you doing today? How are your girls? What’s in your growbox these days?
A: First of all, it is a pleasure to be in your community surrounded by good people who make this growing diary possible.
Thank you very much to all.
Today I find myself with energy. My girls are the best, they are the queens of the house. They are 2 and 13 years old. Right now I have planted a RoyalJack car from RoyalQueenSeeds and a Malana Bomb Auto from Barney's Farms, both with the nutrients from BioTabs.
Q: Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from? Kids, pets? What music do you listen to? What’s your favourite food to munch on?
A: On June 8 I turned 44, I was born in Badalona next to Barcelona, now I live in Montgat next to Badalona I have not been far away, I have two beautiful girls with my wife, a female German shepherd and a cat. I am a graphic designer but 9 years ago I became a chef in a restaurant that we opened, for about three weeks we closed it and now I will work as a designer again. I listen to many styles of music, I think that each song has its moments in life. About the food, I try to lead a healthy life.
Q: When did you start growing? What was your first grow like?
A: About five years ago I planted my first seeds taking advantage of the terrace I had in the restaurant, two sweetseeds caramel cream, two 50L pots, the substrate was universal for gardening and the nutrients were from Biocanabium, it was spectacular 1.5 kg dry both, it was perfect, the rookie's luck.
Q: What’s your favourite strain to grow and to smoke so far?
A: I do not have a favorite variety, it's like music, each one has its moment. I like all of them. In the variety is on pleassure.
Q: Why do you grow weed?
A: Mainly because of prostate cancer of my father that did very well during the chemotherapy sessions, it was taken infused with milk. I also cultivate it because I like its smell, its properties, its effects.
Q: How do you take you weed? Any recipes you’d like to share with us?
A: In all possible ways.
I do not have any particular recipe but if you make marijuana oil or butter, you can make any recipe.
Q: Why do you find it useful keeping a journal of your grow? What would be your advice for the newbies of the community?
A: I think it is important to have a reference before starting a crop and be able to see all the varieties that have daily, because there are many that do not have and I think there are enough to do. See the stages of the plant, from germination to harvest, the techniques that are applied, is a luxury. My advice to the newbies, I also include myself, is that they do not leave the follow-up and the report of the week and that they are not afraid to experiment and ask. We are surrounded by great growers. Great community.
Q: How did you find out about GD? Do you like being here? What do you like the most?
A: Precisely I was looking for a follow up of a cream caramel auto and GD appeared. I like GD because it's what I was looking for, good design, intuitive, information of banks and nutrients, it's great
The contests seem to me a very good way to motivate the growers, to try the gifts and their results.
Q: Do you have any suggestions about how we could improve our website?
A: Personally I would like a section of news and developments with everything related to the crop: seeds, nutrients, lighting, substrates, hydroponics, etc, or maybe you already have it in mind to do it or not.
Q: Any final words?
A: I repeat, it is a pleasure to be in your community surrounded by good people who make this cultivation journal possible. Thanks GrowDiaries for the interview Happy harvest growers!
