About the Author
More About the Author
Jorge Cervantes is the nom de plume that George Van Patten took to conceal his identity from 1983 to 2010. Van Patten wore black dreadlocks and a beret to cloak his public identity. The disguise allowed him to enter illegal cultivation circles. Cervantes came "out of the closet" in a 2010 interview on National Public Radio (USA).
Cervantes is a world-renowned expert on indoor, outdoor, and greenhouse cannabis cultivation. He puts more than thirty years of expert cannabis growing knowledge and hands-on experience at your fingertips with his books, articles, photographs and Youtube videos. His expert advice has guided millions of growers worldwide to apply simple, effective horticultural techniques to high-yield closet, basement, backyard, and guerrilla gardens.
Cervantes traveled to five continents and lived British Colombia, Canada, California, Oregon, Washington State in the USA and the Netherlands and Spain to research cannabis cultivation. He continues to research, publish, make videos, and draw a discussion about his favorite plant with an international community on his forum at www.marijuanagrowing.com.

Over 500 pages (all in full color) and arranged in color-coded sections to help you navigate the abundance of information. I may be wrong, but there does not seem to be a particular order for these sections, but this book isn't meant to be a guide for novices that holds your hand in explaining how the plant grows all the way through to the harvest and cure. Don't get me wrong, all of that information and more is in the book, but it's not put together in a natural flow from equipment to seed to harvest. It's more of an encyclopedia that includes everything - you just have to find it.
Tons of color photographs and lots of great illustrations sometimes do a better job of explaining things than the text itself, but if you're a visual person like me, you're greatly appreciate that approach.
I dock it one star for two reasons. It has more than a few ads interspersed throughout the guide selling certain products. I've never seen that done and it seems like a biased approach. It's a $30 book, so the ads seem unnecessary. More importantly, I sometimes found it difficult to sift through 500 pages to find the information I was looking for. The info is in there, but given the sheer amount of information, you can spend a lot of time trying to find what you want.
I'm constantly referring to this book, so if you're serious about growing, you must buy this book. You don't need to read it cover to cover, but you'll need it far more than you think you will.
As I mentioned, this isn't a 1-2-3 "learn how to grow book" and that's a good thing.Read more ›
Jorge is a mentor to all those interested in cannabis cultivation (including myself). His writing is clear and succinct. His photos are amazing. There isn't a grow book on the market that comes close and that's why everyone in the business calls Indoor Marijuana Horticulture, "The Grower's Bible." The new edition is absolutely comprehensive.
Don't forget to check out his new grow DVD as well. It makes a great companion to this excellent book.
Jorge's approach to show everything he explains in the book in coloured pictures as well is a very useful one. For people who do not like reading very much it is now also clear to them what he means by just checking the pictures.
A truly SERIOUS grow Bible that I recommend to all of our customers.
