WHAT’S GROWING ON?:

How would you build your grow room Today? There’s so much inexpensive equipment available. And Now that it’s been even further decriminalized, there should be more growers than ever. Let’s say you’re helping a friend get growing. Where do you start? Understand how much cannabis you need? How much space do you have available? Where is this space? (sealed or unsealed) Climate controlled? Basements are best for many reasons. Garage ok, can be security risk. Attics suck! How hot does the space get in summer. Budget Commitment- Are they looking for a hobby or a weed machine?

Let’s go shopping:

ACI Complete Kits

HLG Lights

Independent Lab Reports

I’ve got a good post here about their blackbird lights

How to measure efficiency:

Single ended HID like HPS/MH are about 1 μmol/joule or less.

The appropriate metric for plant lighting is photosynthetic photon efficacy (PPE). This is measure by μmol/joule.  The value for LED products ranges considerably, and many new fixtures now exceed 2.0 μmol·J. The higher the PPE value, the more effective it is at converting electricity into photosynthetic photons. The PPE of LEDs continues to increase and purchase costs are decreasing, so some growers are hesitant to invest. The theoretical maximum PPE for LEDs is 4.6 to 5.1 μmol·J–¹, depending on the composition of the LEDs used in an array. We are unlikely to achieve these values in our lifetimes, but an efficacy of 3.5 μmol·J–¹ is possible in the next decade.

Fans are a weak point.

From my friend Ramon’s ‘Growing with Grow Dots’ FB Group:

Getting my first outdoor photo grow together. Extended period Grow Dots on order. What’s the best 5 gallon grow medium? Set & setting affects the high- my mom came to visit

Cheap coco to washed and buffered coco.

Hand water or automated? Nutrients?

I’ve gotta shout out Bill Mahar and his Club Random Podcast. He interrupted his guest so much that it taught me a lesson!

Grow Talk:

States where Growing Cannabis is legal?

COMMENTS:

anonymous –  I’ve been growing for over 30 years. Flushing does nothing. If your smoke smells and tastes like hay that’s because you dried and cured it wrong. Minerals NEVER leave your plant once taken up into the plant. All you do by flushing is rob yourself of weight. This has been proven in actual scientific studies, not just bro science.

Regarding keeping your grow pest free:

paulreynolds9003I’ve been growing for over 25 years and in my experience most people bring them in on cuttings, and once they’ve infested your full grown plants, it’s hard to get rid of them. The mistake growers make is not smoke bombing the room after the crop is finished. I made all these mistakes when I first started growing. And no matter who I buy cuttings from, I always treat them one or twice for spider mites. It’s so easy to do when they’re small. Never put your cuttings straight into your tent or grow room until you know they are pest free.

Regarding that weird smoking device from Dales dankness:

DisTentAint4CampinThe iron lung is like a dry gravity but with a bag you pull the bag out of the bottle and it pulls the weed in the cap the when you fill it up you un screw the cap and enjoy made a few in my youth.
