Comment: Appears to cover most aspects of marijuana
cultivation, indoor and outdoor, in question and answer
format, rather than step-by-step guide. The answers
are well-researched and stated in understandable terms.
There are numerous photographs of cannabis and cannabis
plants, but only 1 diagram (of pest damage). I would
consider that this book would appeal to the experienced
grower who is seeking answers to the more technical
or obscure questions.
One question of particular relevance (Systems: p99):
The questioner (from Tucson Arizona) asks about constructing
a 3-chamber grow-room in a 7├ x 12├ space, with separate
areas for clones (with fluorescents), central growth
(1000W MH @ 18-20hrs) and flowering (1000W MH @ 12hrs).
Questioner implies a "Tricameral" type system
very similar to the Kushti Box. Rosenthal replies that
the system appears workable, but would retain only the
cloning area and flowering chamber, allowing plants
to grow from transplanting to harvest in a single room.
