If you grow, you journal. At least we always have. We had waterlogged nutrient schedules and notebooks that we used to keep track of everything we did in our garden. What we learned from those journals has helped us produce some of the cleanest, strongest and most consistent flower in the state.

We did find that keeping good, usable records was quite difficult. Whether it was forgetting to write something down or the notes being indistinguishable, it didn’t matter. We lost some data which ultimately slowed us down.

We decided to create GrowBuddy help us keep better intelligence on our grow. We shared it with a few friend, and then a few more and so on. It was so popular, we released a beta to the app stores in late 2014. Since then, we’ve quickly grown to be the largest grower app in the world.

GrowBuddy is free. And we intend to keep it that way. We’d like to thank all of those who have donated to help keep us going. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
