    If you have an indoor garden, you can use basil and peppermint essential oils in a diffuser as another measure of IPM.

  2. R K on May 21, 2022 at 12:02 am

    Is this also recommended for indoor growing?

  3. Gabriel perez on May 21, 2022 at 12:02 am

    Would u plant the basil in the pot or in a sepereat pots

    I’ve heard that using lady bugs or Asian beetle as its known can help eliminate aphids. But can they harm the plant itself?

  6. Scruffbeard on May 21, 2022 at 12:06 am

    As a beekeeper and grower, I dont see the added benefit of attracting bees on a plant we DONT want to cross pollinate. However, bee hives make a great deterrent for human pests 😉

  7. Elevated Emotions on May 21, 2022 at 12:08 am

    What’s a good ratio of perlite to use ?

  8. WHATdaFUNK123 on May 21, 2022 at 12:08 am

    You should do a video on Co2 and it’s benefits. And you came a long way from your first videos

  9. rayten0 on May 21, 2022 at 12:10 am

  10. Love on May 21, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Love it, thanks 👍👍

  11. Sinthujan W on May 21, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Hey. I’m growing out doors but starting in doors first. I want to know if it will cause harm if I go from a 1gal pot to a 25gal pot

  12. Tim Fisher on May 21, 2022 at 12:13 am

    do you grow some of these plants in the same pot? or near by? Thanks

  13. Tony Neville on May 21, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Very good content thanks

  14. Luke D Visscher on May 21, 2022 at 12:14 am

    This is your best Video. Thanks

  15. Seth Roberts on May 21, 2022 at 12:16 am

    I use green lacewing eggs from Arbico. Organics for indoor pests like spider mites . Seems to do the trick naturally.

  16. Tyler Rattie on May 21, 2022 at 12:17 am

    Man you just made my summer gardening alot more enjoyable! cheers!

  17. loudigity0 on May 21, 2022 at 12:18 am

    Great vids man thank you for your time you put in to making videos and giving free education!!

  18. Salvador Velasquez on May 21, 2022 at 12:18 am

    Great explanatory videos boss, I’m a beginner in cannabis grow, would a heated light like a iguana tank light be good for growing plants??????

  19. Freddy Jensen on May 21, 2022 at 12:19 am

    can we plant companion crops in a 7 gal container? even the ones you said to plant at the edge? or is this like a giant planter box set up? i was gonna grow a seed in a red solo cup for a month then transplant into a 7 gal

    Thank you 🙏

  23. ray peralta on May 21, 2022 at 12:22 am

    Thanks, very helpful

  24. Dave Sterchele on May 21, 2022 at 12:22 am

    In addition to regular marigolds, consider calendula (pot marigods). This plant is supposed to be more effective in discouraging aphids.

  25. Green Ghost Organics on May 21, 2022 at 12:23 am

    great video, can you do a video on pgr’s and kelp

  26. SouthWest on May 21, 2022 at 12:26 am

    You need to boost that gain bud! Audio levels are hella low.

  27. willywonton Wilson on May 21, 2022 at 12:27 am

    I’ve been waiting for this one man! I’m definitely going to be growing some herbs next to my herbs this year

  28. Trentonandshante Ps4 on May 21, 2022 at 12:27 am

    Keep them coming brother … another banger

  29. Kyles Isler on May 21, 2022 at 12:30 am

    I can NEVER get peppermint to grow!

  30. Ryno Grows on May 21, 2022 at 12:32 am

    Been wondering about Mint in a tent. Have a separate pot as the roots are plenty

  31. John Vl on May 21, 2022 at 12:35 am


  32. Mr X on May 21, 2022 at 12:36 am

    Can i grow these companion plants in the same pot the cannabis is growing in? i have dill and mint seeds.

  33. Trentonandshante Ps4 on May 21, 2022 at 12:38 am


  34. Pyramidion on May 21, 2022 at 12:38 am

    Permaculture!? uh oh your starting to sound like them. Great video though I was thinking of throwing some of the other kind of herbs in the tent.

  35. Vicious Gam3x on May 21, 2022 at 12:40 am

    Grow love respect 🌿💪💨🔥🔥🔥

  36. Film It Now LLC on May 21, 2022 at 12:41 am

    I’ve got few of these in my garden already!!! Will be adding a few more. Thanks!!!

  37. Rory on May 21, 2022 at 12:43 am

    If chamomile works as a repellant against nematodes isnt that counter productive as they fight off the bad pets..?

  38. Austin Lawrence on May 21, 2022 at 12:43 am

    If you ever update this video, my questions are: Can you clarify which of these make more sense to use for an indoor grow or an outdoor grow? For container gardening, do the plants need to be in the same container? (I know that for alfalfa, they do.) Which of these plants can handle a 25 hour vegetative photo-period when using an indoor grow? Which plants can handle lower light conditions, if one wanted to use them as an under-canopy plant for a tent grow? etc.

  39. tommy Mc Weedface on May 21, 2022 at 12:44 am

    I need a way to deter grasshoppers!

  40. FaTbuDz666 on May 21, 2022 at 12:44 am

    Top quality advice.. Chemical free. Peace 420

  41. deadfred821 on May 21, 2022 at 12:46 am

    Only because I find myself with the rare opportunity to contribute do I offer some info about nitrogen fixing. Plants that perform this take nitrogen from the air & feed it to their own roots. Once that plant dies, the roots end up releasing that unused nitrogen into the substrate through rizode (sp) nodes. This essentially works like mycorrhizae, except it’s a bacteria as opposed to a fungus. This is particularly helpful when growing outdoors for any species (particularly corn, which is notorious for stripping your substrate of all nutrients).

    While native Americans made popular the use of the three sister technique (squash, green beans & corn) of companion planting, many other combinations of species have been utilized over the years & it is suggested that you look into the best combination(s) for your garden needs.

    Most legumes fall into this nitrogen fixing category (like the alfalfa mentioned in the video) as well as the following list I was able to Google real quick;




    Azolla nilotica

    Azolla pinnata


    Cajanus scarabaeoides

    Clitoria ternatea


    Cover crop


    Crotalaria juncea



    Fenugreek production in India





    Lablab purpureus


    Lupinus subg. Platycarpos



    Melilotus albus

    Mucuna pruriens



    Pigeon pea

    Prosopis pubescens




    Sesbania grandiflora

    Snap pea

    Snow pea


    Sweet pea


    Trifolium incarnatum

    Trifolium pratense

    Trifolium repens



    Ulex europaeus


    Vicia faba

    Vicia sativa

    Vicia villosa

    Vigna aconitifolia

    Vigna hosei

    Vigna mungo

    Vigna subterranea

    Vigna umbellata


    Winged bean

    I hope this helps someone, cause it’s what has me ready to farm this year….

  42. Ingenious Productions on May 21, 2022 at 12:48 am

    how can a plant increase oil production with neighboring plants if its not planted in the same pot?

  43. doyray man on May 21, 2022 at 12:48 am

    Great video

  44. Imran Hajee on May 21, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Lemme just say, GREAT VIDEO!!

  45. FungalHorror on May 21, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Thanks for a great video. Moved my potted basil among my plants now, and planting some others this weekend.

  46. Creative Experience on May 21, 2022 at 12:50 am

    great video but try to work on audio a little bro bro

  47. mrcorey on May 21, 2022 at 12:50 am

    Please, please, please boost your microphone! Please?

  48. Lars Larsen on May 21, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Permaculture is bullshit.

  49. Cosa Buena on May 21, 2022 at 12:55 am

    Bro. Can you explain how do these plants help the soil if you say to plant them in a different container? I’m growing indoors and was thinking of planting in the same pot as the cannabis to improve the medium. But if I plant in a different pot and place next to it I don’t see how that’s beneficial to the soil. Please help

  50. AL S on May 21, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Is it ok to put a bean plant for instance, in the same pot as your weed
