http://www.growingexposed.com/ You won’t see any high tech innovations at Clandestine Gardens, and that’s exactly how the owner, Ian Kaplan, likes it. Ian is a down-to-earth guy who prefers things to be done the old-fashioned way. His set up is labour-intensive and his team is hard-working, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have fun. Ian, along with his wife, brother, and crew don’t mind getting a little dirt under their fingernails to grow some of the highest quality cannabis around. Clandestine Gardens used to be an old mushroom farm before Ian took it over. It features twelve rooms in total, two specifically for vegging and ten for flowering. This set up was chosen so that Clandestine can harvest one room a week on a ten week flower cycle, taking down a room every Monday and transplanting every Tuesday. As a smaller farm, they produce an an average of 12-20 lbs per room. The system runs efficiently with just enough time for the trim crew to finish up a week’s worth of work before moving on to the next one, which means there is always work to be done and there is no need to switch crews. The advantage with this system is that they can run twenty or more strains with multiple strains per room. As opposed to growing a single room containing only one strain, Clandestine Gardens is able continuously offer a consistent variety of high-quality cannabis for various needs, whether it be a sativa, indica, or hybrid strain. Clandestine Gardens brings in all the genetics they want, some are clone only, and some come from a lot of seed stock. Clandestine supplies staple strains that consumers want the most, which are: Vietnamese Black, LA OG Kush, Velvet Kush, The White, Pineapple Express, Grandaddy Purple, Amnesia, 9lb Strawberry, Rainbow Kush, ATF, Cotton Candy, Ghost, Maui Wowie, DJ Short, Hindu Kush, Green Crack, Hawaiian Treat, Platinum Girlscout Cookies, Jackpot, and more. In each room they introduce four new strains from their seed stock every time in hopes of creating some great genetics. When Clandestine Gardens was converted over from the mushroom farm, Ian added a skate ramp / break room to liven things up. What he didn’t change, however, was the large wooden grow tables that existed within the building. These tables-on-wheels are packed so tightly accessibility can become an issue, so when they want to work on the plants they have to roll them out into the hallway like a big game of Tetris and hand water each bed. The process is quite labour intensive, but traditional is the way they like to keep it, with the addition of LED (light emitting diode) lights and HPS (high pressure sodium) grow lights. Amanda Mackay hosts the premiere episode of Growing Exposed, the show that takes you inside the world of marijuana growing and introduces you to some of the characters behind these gardens. Created by film producer Jeremy Deichen, this series takes a look into the once underground world of marijuana production; documenting garden tours, revealing product tips, and reviewing products and practices.

Maui Onions have long been considered among the best and most flavorful onions in the world. The Maui Onion only grows in the deep red, volcanic earth on the upper slopes of Haleakala, Maui's world-famous dormant volcano. Maui onions are a variety of sweet onion which are widely cultivated on the Hawaiian island of Maui, although they can be grown in other regions as well. Like other sweet onions, Maui onions lack the sulfur which causes the strong odor and sharp taste associated with onions. The State of Hawaii has invested a great of money in marketing their famous onion variety, putting it on par with Vidalia onions from Georgia, another sweet onion variety. Many markets carry Maui onions in season, along with other sweet varieties, and if you live in a temperate zone, you may be able to grow some yourself. Hawaiian farmers claim that a true Maui onion must be grown on Maui, because this distinct onion cultivar flourishes best in the rich volcanic soil of Mount Haleakala, the dormant volcano which dominates the landscape of Maui. The volcano's rich, distinctive red soil may well be responsible for the distinctive sweet flavor of the Maui onion, although the warm weather on the island probably has something to do with it as well. In addition to being very sweet, the Maui onion has a high water content, making it quite juicy. There are a number of ways to use these flavorful onions. Some people enjoy eating them raw out of hand, and they are also good when sliced thinly on salads, sandwiches, and other dishes. The onions can also be cooked, bringing out even more of the naturally sweet flavor; they are great grilled, and they can also be marinated with other vegetables for kebabs, included in stuffings, or used to make distinctive sauces. Typically, Maui onions are among the first of the sweet onion varieties to be available in the spring, because the growing season on Maui starts early; start looking for them at around April. They have a rich golden yellow color and they typically grow in a slightly flattened shape; when seeking out onions in the store, check for soft spots, which can indicate that the Maui onion has gone bad. Onions are tricky to grow. The Maui onion plants require long, warm days to set bulbs, and they are very responsive to impurities in the soil; if you have sulfurous soil, for example, the bulbs will pick it up as they grow. If you want to grow Maui onions, you can order seeds from Hawaiian farms or through your local garden store. Plant the onions in well fertilized soil after the last chance of frost, and keep the soil moist, but not wet, as the onions grow. They will start to set bulbs in warmer weather, and as the weather gets hot, the plants will begin to go dormant. Taper off your watering as the plants go dormant, and harvest the onions when their stalks have withered. Officer Hercules Salmonella drops in on Chauncy Monden of Kula Country Farms, a 4th generation farmer, whose family holds the legacy to the Maui Onions. http://www.kulacountry.com/ For more videos like this, visit http://www.hawaiiangrowntv.com
