The 5th edition of Marijuana Horticulture The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower's Bible rolled off the press in 2006, 7 years ago. So much has changed since then - technology, laws, genetics, etc.!
I have been working on the update of "the bible" for more than 5 years. Finally, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. You can see the new updated Table of contents at http://www.marijuanagrowing.com/show...-Sixth-Edition.
Much of the text is finished and many of the fotos and images are in place. But, with such a large book (it is twice as big as the last one) there are a multitude of details to complete.
The absolute best professional editors available have been editing chapters. But there are three editors that I have had a hard the time finding. I have been looking for a professional lighting engineer, a security expert, and a cannabis cooking expert. But to date have yet to find them. I also need two more "Case Studies" one for a Sealed Indoor Garden Room and the other for a Small Indoor Garden Room.
The solution for the editors for the "Light, Lamps and Electricity," "Preserving the Sanctuary" and "Cooking with Medical Cannabis" chapters is to post the chapters on the site at this forum, http://www.marijuanagrowing.com/foru...-Updates-Forum, and ask all of you to edit these chapters. Please add to and discuss the chapters as they are posted.
The solution to find the two Case Studies could also be left to members. My idea is to have members vote on the different Grow Journals and let you choose the best ones that fit the parameters and include them in the new updated book. Of course the threads would have to be condensed and rewritten. The fotos would also have to be high resolution.
Please tell me what you think of these ideas.
I will start posting pieces of the three chapters today. The chapters are so big that they will require multiple posts in the "New Marijuana Horticulture Bible Updates Forum." It also works best to post the chapters in small pieces so that they can be broken down into different subjects and sections that can be discussed separately.
Of course any members that contribute to the published book will get their screen name in the "Credits" section of the printed and electronic editions of the book. And, I discussed it briefly with the Admin, but have come to no conclusion yet, could also have a special icon or similar recognition in the forum next to your screen name as recognition for your help with this important project.
