The grow world has only recently started to come out of the proverbial closet. A lot of my grow heroes are unknown, or known only by monikers.
On the big stage tho - I’ve always admired DJ Short - doing large-scale, clandestine grows while breeding the classic Blueberry, who’s genetics are almost the bedrock of some of the most common strains around… & then years later he knocks it out of the park with the clone-only Blue Bream. Impressive to say the least. DJ Short has always amazed me.
I also admire genefinderog (I’ll have to look up how to spell his real name), at Wilcox Pharm. I got to meet him once, and he gave me a tour of The Pharm, which is impressive for sure. I like him because he was doing large-scale grows in the 90’s and didn’t stop. And now he’s the lead at a very impressive greenhouse and processing facility. Oh, and lest we forget, he’s also Karma, from Karma genetics!!!
But what are the measure to be the best grower (I ask myself)? It seems like actual growers are less known than their counterpart, breaders, which have so much more fan-fare (and ego).
