Well laid out and easy to understand.

At the time Tommy wrote this book he had no idea that a marijuana clone cloned from a female would become a female, a very valuable reason for cloning.

I picked this book up the other day at the mall just thinking a little extra reading in my collection wouldn't hurt.

Its amazing how someone can write a book on cultivation of marijuana and not know anything about it.
At the time Tommy wrote this book he had no idea that a marijuana clone cloned from a female would become a female, a very valuable reason for cloning. Reading his section on cloning, you can see he has little experience with cloning and frankly dosent know what hes talking about, and sort of makes things up as he goes along. Here is a phrase directly from his book... "The downside is that in most cases with most growers, most clones die before they grow roots and become new plants. I've tried using rooting compounds, not using them, different soil combinations, etcetera. My personal success rate with clones runs about 7 percent, so if I start twenty clones, it's with the expectation that only one or two will survive, and if I'm lucky one of those will be female." pg. 131 This is one of many things written in this book that are bunk.
Tommy if you ever get a chance to read this, please dont compare yourself with most growers because my success rate for cloning is closer to 90%(sometimes even 100%) and, oh yeah! theyre all females, because I clone from female plants.

don't waste you time. i thumbed through this book at the mall. He says it's perfectly fine to microwave or bake you buds to dry then. I would love to meet the idiot who actually did this and thought they had a quality product. what a joke. this book is dangerous for newbies.

I picked this book up the other day at the mall just thinking a little extra reading in my collection wouldn't hurt. This is my third book on growing I've bought so far and it is by far the worst book ever written on growing. You would seriously have better luck just winging it than actually taking this guy's advice. His advice for quick drying buds is to put them in a plastic bag and stomp around on them for a while. He also suggests to use Miracle Gro which retains water like crazy. I'm not sure why this guy wrote this book, maybe it was supposed to be a joke, but please do not take it seriously. It reads like one of those old Zoo Books you would use to write essays on polar bears in elementary school. Quite pathetic.

Tommy McCarthy's Growing Marijuana takes a very thorough and organized approach to the art of cultivating a successful crop. I am not sure what other customers are talking about--this book is full of photos and visual aids. Because there seems to be some confusion on this issue, I have added a visual component to this review to prove otherwise. This book is full of useful information and worth checking out if you are interested in cultivating your own marijuana.
