At Pakalolo Supply Company our cannabis is grown using all-natural farming methods. There are no synthetic additives or bottles nutrients involved in the cultivation process at any point. We strongly believe that providing a natural grow medium, as well as preparing and combining natural ingredients for nutrients, will result in the best looking, smelling and tasting marijuana possible due to high terpene content.
Pakalolo grown plants live the majority of their lives in the same 4x4 bed using a method called no-till farming. No-till farming is exactly what it sounds like. The soil in the beds is treated like a living organism along with the plants themselves. There are earthworms, microbes, nematodes, beneficial bacteria and fungi living in the soil which is never replaced (or tilled). This creates an ecosystem in each of the 4x4 beds with millions of microbes breaking down crop residues and releasing nutrients back into the soil (notice the green grass cover). The no-till method makes for better organic matter and water retention, increases the cycling of nutrients and the amount of water that infiltrates the soil which allows for each successive batch of plants to evolve into better looking, smelling and tasting flower with higher cannabinoid and terpene content.
We support the cultivation of our Pakalolo Grown plants using all-natural, made in-house nutrients using Korean Natural Farming methods (KNF). We purchase fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs from the local co-op grocery store as well as collect our own cannabis waste, then break it all down and ferment it to make fermented plant juice (FPJ) and fermented fruit juice(FFJ). The fermentation process extracts and activates nutrients required by cannabis plants in their vegetative and flowering stages such as Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium as well as micro nutrients, trace minerals and enzymes. We water our plants with sprouted seed teas from different grains and legumes which provide growth enzymes and hormones for our cannabis plants throughout their lives. We also brew compost tea for watering which fortifies the soil by adding microbes to increase the vitality of our living and breathing no-till flower beds.
Modern LED lighting has been advancing as quickly as cell phones since their introduction. LEDs now offer full spectrum lighting (no more purple grow rooms) with a far greater output, increased efficiency and a larger footprint. SPYDRx PLUS from Fluence Bioengineering help us to grow the best quality cannabis at Pakalolo Supply Company while minimizing heat and energy usage.
The SPYDRx PLUS is designed for close proximity in a controlled environment agriculture (thats what we do) in an aluminum alloy chassis with integrated heatsink for longevity and passive, natural convection thermal management allowing for no fans or moving components. The SPYDRx PLUS only uses a mere 685 watts while outputting more intensity than a 1000 watt high pressure sodium. It uses the PhysioSpec Indoor spectrum, a full-cycle spectrum optimized for rapid growth and complete plant development. Tailored for growing plants through every stage: germination, clones/cuttings, mothers, vegetative and flowering applications in indoor environments. With a CRI rating of 85, PhysioSpec Indoor offers a beautiful work and research environment with vivid colors and greater contrast to study the health of your crop. Its output is similar in look and feel to sunlight.
As we have mentioned, we pride ourselves on focusing on the look smell and taste of our flower by using all-natural cultivation methods. Research on cannabis over the past decade has shown that terpenes are the key to accomplising this goal and are produced at a higher rate in cannabis grown naturally among other factors. Terpenes are pungent aromatic and flavorful oils secreted from the cannabinoid glands that produce THC/CBD. Even more exciting is the fact that research has began to show that terpenes offer much more than just aroma and flavor.
