Entrepreneur George Bianchini, an Oaksterdam University graduate, has innovated a gardening/watering system that provides him with a thriving cannabis garden in spite of the drought. This system for growing high quality marijuana as well as fruits, vegetables, and other herbs uses the exact amount of water that a plant needs, and not a drop more, according to Bianchini.
The private, ultra water-conserving garden of Medi-Cone founder and recent Hempcon winner Bianchini will be open to media on Wednesday, September 17. George himself will guide visitors through the garden's seven stations, explaining how his "Wicked Wicking System" works.
Using a wicking method that, according to Bianchini, dates back to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and combining it with modern day materials and processes, the inventor said he has created a system that decreases the amount of water lost with conventional methods to upwards of 75 percent.
Being community-minded, Bianchini plans to give the information away for free by posting an online DIY video showing do-it-yourselfers how to construct their own systems. For those less handy, kits will be made available for purchase.
George's high-CBD strain took First Place, triumphing over 25 other competitors at San Francisco's Hempcon last weekend. Additionally, he has perfected a strain that allows him to harvest 3 outdoor crops per year -- an innovation that is sure to be popular with outdoor growers.
Bianchini said he has been cultivating high quality strains since 2008 for his own Medi-Cone packaged pre-rolls.
