How to Grow the Greenest Green is an online, video based course that walks you through setting up your very own automated hydroponic grow and teaches you everything you need to know in order to grow the healthiest, and most potent plants possible.  We show you how to connect your home grow to the Internet of Things, allowing us to launch the first ever open source community for cannabis growers!  

We give you a list of everything you need in order to build our system, 95% of which is available through Amazon Prime.  Our step-by-step video instructions walk you through setting everything up and our 14 week course gives you weekly breakdowns of how to care for your plants as well as explaining the underlying science that’s occurring in your plants.  We'll cover the various growing, trimming, harvesting, and cooking techniques that are used throughout the industry!

Hydroponics is simply a way to grow plants without using soil. Plants need soil for two reasons, to provide a support structure for the roots to grow on and to provide nutrients for the plant. In hydroponics, clay pellets are used for root stability, and nutrients are put directly into the water which allows you to give the plant exactly what it needs, when it needs it.

This results in faster growth with greater yields!

Our Beginner Grower course is a 14 week, video based course that teaches you everything you need to know about cultivating cannabis!  We start by giving you step-by-step instructions on how to setup your new home grow.  Then, throughout the 14 week course, we'll be growing plants right along with you so that we can give you weekly breakdowns of how to care for your plants as well as what they should look like.  Week 1-12 takes you from seed selection all the way through flowering your plants.  In Week 13 we teach you about harvesting, drying, and curing your plants.  Then in Week 14 we teach you all about cooking with your plants!

Denver is the epicenter of the current legalization movement and living here gives us the unique opportunity to educate the world about an emerging, rapidly expanding industry.  Our course will include interviews and lessons from the men and women that are on the forefront of this movement: the growers, the budtenders, the trimmers and harvesters, the chefs making the edibles, and many more.  

We want to give our students real world knowledge straight from the industry experts themselves! 

 Our Master Grower course teaches you all about advanced horticulture techniques and shows you how to connect your home grow to the Internet of Things!  This is the perfect course for any grower that wants to take their home grow to the next level.  We'll teach you how to:

  • Add environmental sensors (light, temperature & humidity, CO2 levels, and atmospheric pressure)
  • Connect an LCD screen to your system for real-time sensor readings
  • Add a camera for time-lapse photography
  • And connect everything to the internet for remote monitoring of your plants via the camera and so that you can stream all of your sensor data to the cloud

The advanced horticulture classes will be released periodically throughout the 14 week Beginner Grower course. All of the automation and Internet of Things classes will be released by 1/31/15.

 We want growers with all levels of experience, from beginner to life-long cultivators! By establishing a uniform hardware system, growers can engage and help each other, giving the power of education and knowledge to the people! Once our course starts, we’ll be launching an educational forum to open discussions on all aspects of the growing cycle.  We want to create the first ever open source community for cannabis growers!

The system used in this course is designed to grow three plants simultaneously. Professional growers, with advanced lighting systems and ample space, can yield between 1-1.5 pounds per plant. Our goal is to have your home grow yield a total of 2-3 ounces, which equates to about 1 ounce per plant.

This will allow you to pay for the entire cost of your system in just one harvest!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge will be getting the course content to the backers as quickly as possible. This course will be an evolving course, meaning that new content will be released as it is made. Please take a look at the section titled Course Release Dates for more information.

Backers should also be aware that small price changes regularly occur on Amazon. While we've done everything we can to make sure that the prices we list are as accurate as possible, minor price fluctuations should be expected. A change of more than +/- 5% would be highly unlikely.
