DJ Short's essays on the craft of indoor cannabis cultivation show how any hobbyist can refine gardening technique and achieve mastery.

DJ Short is a celebrated breeder whose collection of seed strains has received international recognition for their premier quality. His first book collects two decades of experience in cannabis cultivation and breeding for the amateur grower. Short's style is both friendly and thoughtful, offering tips for selecting plants and helping the serious hobbyist finesse their garden for high quality.

The first section covers cultivation and each environmental factor's contribution to the indoor gardener's success, with an emphasis on organic methods. It includes secrets to customizing lighting, temperature, air circulation, nutrients and supplements. Gardening methods, from sprouting seeds to harvesting and curing are described with quality and flavor in mind.

The second section includes essential topics of breeding -- such as selecting plants, collecting pollen, and stabilizing a variety -- with careful consideration of how flavor and quality set a good breeding program apart.

Includes photography of Short's varieties and other unique plants throughout, plus 8 full-color pages of exceptional cannabis.
