Don’t grow in the dark

You’ve got the tools, but now what? i49 doesn’t leave you hanging to figure things out on your own. i49 offers a step-by-step growing technique for cultivating at home, using the nutrients provided in the kit along with a few simple items found around the house. For example, two plates, some paper towels, filtered water, and tweezers—plus Germ Genie—are all you need to nudge your seeds into producing a strong taproot in just two to five days.

From there, you can plant seedlings in repurposed containers—like yogurt jugs—and use the Seedling Booster to strengthen your young plants. Growtime Fertilizer strengthens roots and increases nutrient uptake during the vegetative stage. And finally, applications of Flowertime Fertilizer and Plant Booster help fatten up buds and keep plants healthy right up until harvest. The guide walks you through every step of the process, straight through harvest, trimming, drying, and curing. It couldn’t be simpler.

Want to get an idea of how simple your first grow will be with some help from i49? Check out these 12 easy steps for a successful harvest:

The i49 growing technique, simplified
Step oneGather your supplies! (Seeds, soil, grow pots, nutrients, light, tent, fans, a humidifier or dehumidifier, PH readers).
Step twoBegin germinating your seedlings by soaking your seeds on a paper towel with a water to hydrogen peroxide mixture (⅔ distilled water to ⅓ 3% hydrogen peroxide). Place your seeds folded in their paper towels in a dark and warm location for 24-48 hours.
Step threePlant your seedlings in soil under 24 hours of light. You’re now in the seedling stage: For the first 14 days of life, you do not need to feed your cannabis plants any nutrients as they will have enough to survive and thrive by themselves.
Step fourAfter 14 days, you have entered the vegetative stage, and it’s time to feed your plants ¼ the recommended dose of the first stage of nutrients. Feed your cannabis plants every other watering and water your plants every three to five days or once the soil is dry about an inch down from the top layer.
Step fiveVeg your plants for a minimum of 30 to 60 days or longer & complete any necessary transplanting as your plants grow.
Step sixOnce your plants reach half the height you have available for grow space, you’ll want to flip your plants to 12/12 when they reach 18 to 24” in height. Use the 12/12 light cycle to shift your plants to flower, and after five to seven days your plants should show their sex underneath that light cycle.
Step sevenBegin to feed your plants heavier PK feeds and shift your PH range from 5.8 to 6.1 to 6.1 to 6.3 PH, aiming at 6.3 PH. You’ll want to do bare minimum training and defoliation after week 3 of flowering or day 21—prior to this day, you can do defoliation and different low-stress training methods.
Step eightPrepare your plants for heavy yields and a frosty harvest by lollipopping your plants or skirting them so that all of the weight remains up top in the canopy.
Step nineOnce your plant is past week six of flowering, you’ll be using a magnification lens or jeweler’s loupe to check trichome age. Once you’re within two weeks of harvest, generally 3% to 5% away from your ideal trichome range, you should begin feeding much less and potentially flushing your plants the last two weeks to one week of life.
Step tenOnce you’re ready to harvest your plants, it’s time to chop them down as whole plants and hang dry for 7 to 14 days. Generally speaking, most growers aim for about 10 days of drying time.
Step elevenCuring your cannabis comes after your buds are dried. For curing you’ll need mason jars, 62% two-way humidity packs, and some humidity and temperature gauges. Once you have your bud trimmed and jarred, place a 62% two-way pack inside your jar with your temperature and humidity reader. You’ll burp your jars three times a day the first week, two times a day the second week, one time a day the third week, and once every other day the fourth week.
Step twelveAfter two weeks of curing at minimum, your bud is ready to be consumed! It’s time to start enjoying the fruits of your labor. All that’s left is to start the process all over again. Happy growing!
