What is Homegrown Diaries?
Homegrown Diaries is a unique platform exclusively for customers of Homegrown Cannabis Co. It affords cannabis cultivators the ability to document and track their grow cycle from start to finish, factoring in elements such as strain, grow room type, grow medium, light type and start date. Furthermore it is also a digital space for growers across the country to share their experiences and learn from the experiences of other growers.
How to start my Diary?
First, you must sign up for Homegrown Diaries with your Google account or email address, after you have done so, you will need to do the following:
Go to the diary icon in the top right of the screen and hit ‘+’ to start your diary
Give your diary a name
Add the Homegrown Cannabis Co. strain you will be growing

Note: while you can only select 1 strain per diary, it is possible to have multiple diaries at one time.
How often should I update my diary?
We recommend that you update your diary once a week as the diary keeping interface is divided into weeks. Thankfully, uploading your weekly information should be a quick and easy process. Our platform allows you to add images of your plants, what nutrients you’re using and more to really help you track your progress.
Why do you only have Homegrown Cannabis Co. strains?
Put simply, our database only contains our strains as we can only vouch for our genetics. There are many seed banks from around the world but to account for all them would be difficult, so
to keep everything unified and to ensure that our users can trade tips and tricks easily, we only allow for growers to input Homegrown strains.
When to start a Diary? Seed or Seedling?
You can essentially start your diary whenever you want. We would recommend starting from the seedling stage, as this is when growing truly begins, post-germination. While the main goal is to map out your grow from seed to harvest, it is entirely possible for you to open your diary at any point and go from there, or you could even input your diary information retroactively.
When to post harvest
Harvesting cannabis is not as simple as cutting the buds off and smoking them, it takes several weeks to fully complete the harvesting process. Therefore we would recommend that you first enter the primary harvest information and then return to add the dry weight and final quality information later.
