    BALZACS: GUERILLA CULTIVATOR

    So you want to grow some weed? Well there are some steps that need to be taken in order to be successful at any venture that involves cultivating Cannabis. When cultivating Cannabis one must always recognize that it is illegal under the current Federal Laws to cultivate Cannabis. Even in states that harbor medical marijuana users it is illegal to possess, sell and or manufacture Cannabis. A medicinal user approved by state government is still violating Federal laws. The first step when growing Cannabis illegally in the United States or any other country is to accept what you are doing is illegal. Society is slowly evolving and one day in the future Cannabis will be legally consumed by all adults as a choice of freedom. Cannabis cultivators are the Mahatma Gandhi’s of the drug culture of the world. We as a group must stand up and represent ourselves as a peaceful group of resistors. We are resisting using civil disobedience as our tool in our arsenal. The consumption of Cannabis in one’s own home is a victimless crime and such is cultivating Cannabis.

    To circumvent such laws Cannabis cultivators must be resourceful to avoid detection. We must take a chapter from history and the founders of the United States during the Revolutionary War. The states we confounded with the overwhelming power of the British Empire. The Revolutionaries had to be resourceful to take on the power that was the British Empire. Guerilla tactics were used against the British Empire to turn the tide of the Revolutionary War. We as cannabis cultivators must use these tactics to our own advantage when peacefully protesting Federal and State law. I propose that all Cannabis Cultivators take Cannabis back to its rightful place under the open skies. Guerilla cultivation has been used for many years, but as of recently fewer cultivators has moved indoor to avoid further detection and to produce the highest quality Cannabis under strictly controlled environments.

    The production of Cannabis in an indoor environment is seen as the only way to produce the highest quality and most valuable Cannabis in today’s underground market. The legal liabilities involved with cultivating Cannabis indoors are astronomical. In the majority of the United States cultivating even one cannabis plant is a felony. Not all Cannabis cultivators can afford the equipment and risk involved with indoor cultivation. The factors that need to be controlled are numerous and will keep a cultivator on the edge constantly. The factors that play a large role in detection are odor, light leak, electricity consumption and supply movement. When a cultivator decides to conduct cultivation outdoors the liabilities are limited. When deciding to guerilla cultivate one must avoid liabilities by choosing a plot of land that is not by any means is associated with the cultivator or persons relating to the cultivator. The most necessary step to successful Guerilla cultivation is to avoid liability if the plot is discovered.

    Plot Selection

    Plot selection is above all else the most important step that is going to be taken by an individual when Guerilla cultivating. It cannot be stressed enough that the plot is going to be what makes or breaks the back of the cultivator. Any plot must be meticulously dissected to make the choice of whether it is or is not a place suitable for Cannabis cultivation. There are multiple variables that need to be addressed when deciding whether or not a plot is suitable. The location, direct sunlight, human presence and pest control. These variables must be studied to successfully find a location in which Cannabis will thrive and will be free of threats to its ability to produce.

    The first recommendation is to place the plot at the least a half hour walk from any kind of trail or road. The greater the distance between the plot and civilization will decrease the chances of it being discovered. The cultivator must also address the issue of transpiration of supplies when choosing a suitable plot. When looking for a suitable location to cultivate Cannabis one must spend hours scouting and mapping multiple locations. I recommend when traversing land that is posted to have a back story. I usually take my dog for a walk in the woods when I am scouting. You could also take a pair of binoculars and a bird book. Most people do not tolerate the presence of unwanted people on their private property. If you have a back story you can ease tension with an explanation and most likely will be able to head out on foot and not under arrest for trespassing. The use of a back story is highly recommended to anyone when guerilla cultivating.

    These locations must be scrutinized in every detail. Visualize walking down a trail or down a back road. Remember that it is always best to follow the path least traveled. When scouting the first thing to recognize is how often these trails and or road are traveled. Take a look around the area and the usual sign of the presence of people is garbage. Take into consideration the volume of garbage in the area and the age of it. It is easy to tell how old garbage is just by physical examination. When choosing a final plot one must make sure that there is no garbage within at least a half mile radius of the plot. If there is no garbage in an area than it is less likely that people will wander through the area. The half mile marker will also increase stealth of a cultivation plot. The odor produced by a plot is of less concern when cultivating outdoors. The trees, vegetation and wind will dissolve and mask the scent of the plot. The plot must also be scrutinized for the amount of direct sunlight that it receives on a daily basis.

    The plot must receive in a minimum of at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. The best recommendation is for the plot to receive on average more than twelve hours of direct sun light. Success has been obtained by guerilla growers in areas that receive six hours of direct light a day, but yields will most likely suffer in decreased light situations. Plants will only average an Ounce of finished product in conditions that are less than optimum light. The best way to map the amount of direct sun light is to actually visit each possible grow site at three separate parts of the day these are sunrise, noon and sunset. If you record the position of these times of day than a sun map can be created. The time between the allotted sunrise and set will determine the number of hours of direct sun light a plant receives. Variables that must be taken into account are objects that may block sunlight during the sunrise and set. Time must be subtracted for any object that receives indirect sunlight during these times. The location of water is another important factor when choosing the location of a Cannabis plot.


    Plot Preparation

    Plot preparation is a key step to the development of any guerilla plot. When preparing a plot it is important to have the correct tools at your disposal. Lack of equipment will make the job tedious and exhausting. Having at least a folding shovel to do the work that is required to prepare a plot is important. I usually use a standard shovel and as far as equipment goes if you have a shovel it will make the preparation far easier. A knife is the guerilla growers’ best friend when far out in the wilderness. It is single handedly the most important tool of a grower. What needs to be stressed now is the importance of stealth at this point of plot preparation. The guerilla grower must avoid detection at all costs. People will be extremely suspicious of a person walking into a wooded area with a shovel. I recommended using night to your advantage. You do not even need to carry your equipment all the way to your grow at night. The cover of night will allow you to drop equipment just a few yards into a wooded area, than during the day you can return and move the equipment to plot. Every step taken is very important and will result in a successful guerilla plot.

    The purpose of the shovel is obvious and not extremely complicated. The best plan of attack when preparing a plot is to prepare soil at least two weeks in advance. You should turn the native soil and add additives before planting any plants in a plot. The soil needs to be tilled and aerated. The easiest way to do so is with a shovel. The tilling of the soil is basically flipping the soil upside down and chopping it into a loose material. When the soil is flipped it will put vegetation and thus nitrogen in the soil. Aerated soil also promotes root growth which is key to growing monster plants outdoors. For each plant that you intended to place in the ground I recommend digging a two foot by two foot hole minimum. The holes need to be at least four feet apart from stalk to stalk and staggered. The reason behind staggering is to break up any lines in a plot. Plants planted in line plots are the easiest to spot from the air. The correct spacing will create a canopy of foliage that will be harder to spot from the air. Soil amendments and additives are very important to the growing process.

    These amendments you will be adding to the soil will nourish growth and provide lush and healthy cannabis plants. I recommend getting a premixed soil for plot preparation. Every grower has their own secret when it comes to soil amendments. I am a cheap bastard so I use miracle grow potting soil. If you want to blow some money you can invest in a few bags of fox farms. I usually take my premixed soil and mix it with the native soil that was removed from the holes. The premixed soil should be able to provide the plants with enough nitrogen for at least the first couple of weeks after which you will need to start alternative nitrogen based fertilizer. Depending on the makeup of the native soil I also add sand and or peralite. The main reasons behind adding sand and or peralite are to promote soil leeching to prevent the plants from being flooded out. In the Northern hemisphere we tend to have a lot of rain. Sand also promotes healthy strong branching. The silica in sand can be used by the plants to help make sturdy robust branches which can survive storms and wind. I usually add a phosphorous additive near the bottom of the two by two hole and add some in the soil mix to promote flowering growth in the later months.

    If you complete all of these necessary steps for plot preparation I can guarantee you will have a far more successful grow than past grows which may have been haphazardly thrown together late in the season. Preparation is key to a successful outdoor grow. Ask any farmer in the world without preparation failure is the outcome. Remember you want to prepare your plot at least two weeks in advance just one last reminder.

Variables that must be taken into account are objects that may block sunlight during the sunrise and set. Time must be subtracted for any object that receives indirect sunlight during these times. The location of water is another important factor when choosing the location of a Cannabis plot.

    When trying to plan the placement of a Cannabis cultivation plot one must choose a plot that is near either a creek, open source and or a plot with moist soil. The best place to plant a plot is in an area not located near an open water source or creek. The main reason is because these areas are known for a high volume of human and animal traffic. Open waterway or creek a locations where people frequent to fish and or swim. Animals such as deer or any other number of creature’s frequent water at all times of day and night. These factors increase the chances of the plants being discovered or pirated. The lure of an open water source may seem tempting, but will most likely result in failure. Locations chosen with moist soil are less likely to be disturbed by animals or humans and still provide a plant with ample water. In the end it will also result in the cultivator spending less hours carting water to the plot and will lessen the chances of a plot being discovered. When law enforcement are searching for Cannabis they usually follow stream, rivers and other water accesses because they are most likely to have marijuana growing around them. They also look for paths that have been walked into the vegetation by Cannabis growers who walk the same path repeatedly to carry water or supplies into a plot. The size of a plot can also determine its success and failure.

    The size of a plot should not be beyond the size of a person’s capability to care for their plot. The recommended size of a plot should be between 10-15 plants. The larger the size of the plot the higher the likely hood is that the plot will be discovered by pirates or law enforcement. The law enforcement uses helicopters and even single prop planes to find the locations of large and small grows. The police are less likely to spot and enter plots that are smaller than 10-15 plants and spread over a large area. Law enforcement is looking for plots that are large and gives them the appearance of accomplishing something. The fact is that law enforcement will never be able to eradicate the Cannabis plant and I intended on making sure it does not happen.

    These factors must all be taken into account when deciding on the location of a Cannabis plot. I cannot stress enough that a cultivator is in charge of their own security, you must never tell anyone where the location of your plot is. You must never show any person the location of your plot. If you want to brag about your plot do it on www.Rollitup.org. Do not tell even the closest friend you have in the world. Even if your closest friend who would never pirate your patch finds out where your plot is it could be ripped. A friend of a friend might not feel so bad if your 5 months of work and preparation ended up in an empty plot. You must take all of these factors into consideration when choosing a Guerilla cultivation plot. It is in your hands now to pick the most suitable location to grow Cannabis. `

    So you would'nt recommend planting inland from a river if it was over a half hours walk from a path or stream/river? Seems to make water transportation easier. I'm scouting out spots now any other imput?

    Specifically I would say look for a spring or a water leech. They are the hardest to spot from the air.

    you know what your talking about. but as for your water supply try this-- Build dams using rect tarp( one end tied to two trees up about 8ft, the other end made into a spout by joining corners together using wire.) The tarp is on a 45 deg angle, under the spout end is a 60l plastic garbage bin with shade cloth as a lid (wrap wire around to hold cloth in place ) this stops animals drinking it. try to have it in shade to stop evap, use buckets to water, use black or army green tarp.
    They are easy to bring in and easy to set up. In a heavy 10 min shower ,its full. I set up a 4 in each patch(30 hole patches), gives me 240 litres a visit. If its not raining much just space it out, dont use all at once.
    Lugging in drums of water is back breaking and fucks your trail. Try to put them in the shade just outside the pen.

    Good idea about the tarp to collect water in the garbage bin, how many of those do you set up? The rig isn't big enough to attract attention to your garden?

    The tarp idea sounds like a bad idea. That would be very easy to spot from the air.

    Yo Balzac can you post any information on how to avoid detection?i skimmed through the Plot selection post but i didnt spot anything about avoidjing detection from air? i was gonna plant in spots of 2 each spaced out about 100-200feet. but i heard they can spot pairs of 2 from the air? any advice on how to camo them and get full sunlight?
