The event had about 23 vendors, including the likes of Medical Marijuana Mix and DocGreens Solutions to assist with growing, Pure Altitude to provide items from their seed bank of over 200 strains and 10 different genetics, and others that sold pro-marijuana clothing, hemp jewelry and more. A band performed live music, and the expo also had a glass-blowing demonstration...

“Less is more. The best way to avoid pests and diseases is to have enough airflow. Make sure to move cool filtered air in and exhaust all spent warm air out."

“You should always start with 100% organic grow mix and water from the bottom. That way you avoid creating a moist soil layer at the top of your pots that can encourage pests and molds."

“Humidity is a bitch around here. It goes up and down all the time. You have to use a humidifier when your lights are on and a de-humidifier when they’re off. Otherwise, powdery mildew and mites will run wild."
