Jorge Cervantes Marijuana horticulture(the indoor/outdoor medical grower's bible).
Great book, lots of info. Lots of color pics, Great for the inexperienced to advanced gardeners. Everything you need to know to start out.

I grow by this book: Organic Marijuana Soma Style.
This book is more of a compendium for the grower who has some experience. But great techniques in there! i swear buy it. Nothing beats fully organic!

Cheers and happy reading,
-Mojo

I've never read soma style.  Its in the plans though.  Jorge's MJ horticulture first then Marijauna botany by r.c. clarke.  read those two books cover to cover and you'll have a great understanding of cannabis cultivation.

Soma's book is pretty much garbage and yes I've told him that to his face. Like I've proved so many times it's not funny his method of doing female seeds is fucking crazy. He charges up the ass for his seeds and he doesn't even produce them. He has other growers do it for him and he doesn't even quality check their grows. He uses customer response to judge how they are doing. That is just plain fucked up.

and I wasted years growing organically fighting with other growers over weather organics tasted better or not so I did this test a while back using hundreds of people and over two pounds of weed. My grow experience is over 25 years indoors and even more time outside.

Here is a copy of the post I did when I did the test.

OK, I have been growing since the mid 80’s and the entire time I’ve heard how organic bud is better tasting and such. I always felt that this was true just cause when you listen to why it is suppose to be better then buds grown with synthetics or chemical nutrients it seems to make sense. Then I saw this show called bullshit with Penn and Teller and the subject was organic food. I saw the test that they did and I just had to do em with buds.
Well the test was done at 3 different clubs and with a group of growers in Mendocino County. The strain used was Granddaddy Purple.
People were allowed to try free samples of organic grown and buds grown with General Hydroponics nutrients. Flora Nova and Kool Blooms.
Now the samples
2 plates of buds with labels showing but the buds switched. Organic buds in the hydro plate and hydro buds in the organic plate. 2 plates with no labels and the buds were in the right plate. Then for fun (he he he ) two sets of plates one with organic buds in both plates and one with hydro buds in both plates.

The results.
Buds in the right plate but no labels showing  73% of people picked the hydro buds as better tasting and smoking buds.

Buds in the plates with the labels showing but with the buds switched 87% picked the organic side with the hydro buds in the plate. (Even so far as going and saying they can taste the soil then getting very pissed when shown the bud they picked)

Then the same buds divided into two and put into labeled plates. So what I mean here is buds from the same plant put into two plates with different labels to see if anybody would notice. In both sets of plates 87% of people again picked the Organic as better tasting in both sets even though it was the same bud divided into two plates. I heard comments on how the organic tasted “earthy cleaner, less salty, and one who insisted that the organic buds burnt better then got pissed when told he picked hydro in every instance.


Both sets of buds were flushed for one week before harvesting.

Conclusion is that properly grown hydro buds seems to be as good in every way as organic buds.

I read a post over at ic where Soma apologized for low germination rates and just explained that it wasn't him growing it. I read another post where he was called out for being a shady grower since his seeds sucked and he just said he didn't grow them.

Nigger is brain dead.

I read a article by Shanti saying in the 90s he gave Soma a bunch of plants which Soma crossed to his various skunks then started his seed company?

Yup, Shanti is right. Soma has great genetics to work with but take a look at his strains. There just mixes of the same strains over and over and over again. Same thing with DJ Short who uses the same 4 strains in everything he does.
