growing two cannabis plants

Eddie Smith, co-owner of The Plant Stand of Arizona, confirmed his south Phoenix nursery would be selling cannabis seeds in the future.

The passage of Proposition 207 in Arizona, legalizing recreational cannabis, ushered in a new opportunity for the home gardener. Adults ages 21 and older are now allowed to grow a limited amount of cannabis plants at home for personal use.

Where can I buy a cannabis clone?

As of Oct. 19, the company was sold out of seeds, but people can join an email list for an update when seeds are back in stock: phoenixseedsandclones.com.

Both Wylie and Sundberg said the key items you need to grow cannabis are nutrient-rich soil, water and light.

How many cannabis plants can I grow?

Wylie recommended plants should be watered when the soil is dry. Growers can test this by sticking a finger into soil about halfway between the plant and edge of the pot. If the soil is warm and dry, it’s time to water.

Kerr said more expensive lights give higher wattage which will be needed for the plant's vegetative growth stage and flowering stage.

P.E.I. Cannabis began selling marijuana seeds in January but says interest in the legal seeds isn't strong. It secured what it calls a limited supply from Ontario-based Canopy Growth for purchase in-store and online.

Hanging reflective material or fabric or using a growing tent (they range from a few hundred dollars to more than $1,000) will help control this, Kerr and Harnden say.

3. Getting light cycles wrong

A visit to the agency's site shows it has only two varieties of indica seeds for sale. A package of four seeds costs $52.99 — that's more than $13 per seed, plus tax.

"If you pluck them off the plant it is able to direct the energy toward the canopy," Kerr said.

Seeds are available at P.E.I. Cannabis but sales have been weak

People are "definitely ordering [seeds] from other provinces," said Kerr. "It tends to be better genetics and better service too."

Growing outdoors is fun and can be cheaper, both said, but can lead to an inferior product for your investment of time and energy, especially if you don't have a fast-maturing strain.
