Nik from Rooted Leaf (use code growcast) is back on the show for another cannabis nutrition deep dive! Today Nik joins the program and discusses how calcium is taken up and deposited by the plant, and what that means for cannabis growers. He contrasts this nutrient cycle to something like phosphorous, which requires less reapplication and isn't deposited into the plant structure the same way. This leads to a conversation about the different pathways that nutrients and plant phenols take, and how flavonoid production plays into the nutritional cycle. Nik talks about flavonoids, what they are, how they're produced, and how they end up affecting the overall cannabis consumption experience. The guys also discuss tea- the master of flavonoid production- as well as coffee, and what we can learn from these two plants as cannabis growers.
