VIVOSUN Grower Spotlight: Don Hudson’s Story


Don Hudson and VIVOSUN's Products

What VIVOSUN products do you use? Favorite piece of equipment?

[I have the] VIVOSUN Portable pop-up 8×6, the VIVOSUN 57x57x77 mini walk-in greenhouse, VIVOSUN 3-gallon, 5-gallon, and 10-gallon fiber grow bags, the VIVOSUN 4″ fan/carbon filter/duct, and a VIVOSUN 4×4 indoor grow tent. I enjoy using all of the products but the outdoor greenhouse stuff really comes in handy. I can germinate my [plants] starting in February and put [them] outside in the ground the first week of April. The new tents guarantee no low temp problems and lots of savings in the electricity department.

How long have you grown weed and/or smoke?

I am an old biker, I’ve been doing this since the 70’s. Very interesting to see the changes. I have some serious medical issues and the VA pushes opioids so I had to get off those; Marijuana is my med. 

What is your favorite strain?

My favorite strain is a tuff one. I enjoy heavy Indica and I am not into the hybrids. Old school. I like to trace my plants’ lineage back to the original. It is difficult but worth the extra effort. There is some very straight-line genetics out there. 

What’s your specialty? Organic, mostly organic, or hydroponics?

I specialize growing in dirt. I really like outside but I do one grow per year in the tent.

Photos or autos? 

Don’t care for autos – the photos are more fun to raise. 

Quantity or Quality? 

QUALITY all the way. 

What’s your biggest yield from one plant? 

Around 14. Beautiful dense buds.

Do you have a short funny story about growing up or being stoned that you would like to share?

Way too many to tell. I will throw one out there every once in a while. 

What’s your favorite Stone movie or song (but it’s ok if it’s not a stoner movie/song)?

Long Haired Country Boy (Charlie Daniels)

What’s your favorite way to medicate? Joints, blunts, pipes, bongs, edibles, something else?

I love joints, edibles, and tinctures – yes to all.

If you were stranded on an island with an abundance of cannabis, what 3 things would you want to have with you?

If I were stranded on an island… #1 flint striker #2 Unlimited grape Nehi #3 An Ice Cream buffet. 

What is one piece of advice you would give to a new grower? Or, what is one thing you wish someone had told you before you started?

The best advice I can share is PATIENCE. This is just farming. Try things, be patient, and see how it turns out.
