Cannabis is quickly becoming legal in a number of states. However, growing has been difficult for the home gardener. Traditional cannabis varieties are photoperiod sensitive, take six months to produce, and grow extremely large – not a home garden friendly plant. Join award-winning author and GardeComm Hall of Fame inductee Jeff Lowenfels as he discusses a new kind of cannabis perfect for home gardeners – autoflowering cannabis. Grown from seed, autoflowering cannabis flowers in 7 to 9 weeks on houseplant size plants! Not since the snap pea has a new plant introduction held as much promise to become the "Next Tomato." This is the plant that will make growing cannabis easy for regular gardeners who want to grow their own. Come learn the what, why, and how of this wonderful, easy to grow new plant.
