    Quantum Board (QB) Vs Chip On Board (COB)

    And if this is the quality of person driving the new cannabis industry here, we are proper f-ed. Can't we just get some normal level headed people?
  2. With voter apathy being so high here you total needed is much lower. 2 parties got seats in parliament with 27 000 and 33 000 votes in the last elections.
  3. Lols dagga growing kit without any actual dagga.....

    Quantum Board (QB) Vs Chip On Board (COB)

    They dont offer free shipping outside of the states but the unit still comes to 15k even if the postage was free. Prices must've been more discounted when you last checked. Oh well

    Could you link me to these specials? At those prices I'd gladly resell. Are you still paying 20% import duties? And how much for postage?

    Wow if you can get it that price why not resell? And how come they sell the units on their site for $1050 if its available for cheaper?

    Also if you buy that $99 board from HLG they charge $150!!! postage. So its already more than buying local.

    @greenkush yeah I do realize you can get cheaper boards and import them. I built my own lights too. It's cheaper when you import the parts though as they list them as electronic parts. If you buy a light fixture like this they nail you with 20% import duty + postage. So from my rough calculations they're not massively overcharging people. Only local light manufacturers are Growopz with much better prices. @Justin Hemp Yeah the HLG is a top range light used for agriculture but will still have the same diodes as Growopz. Think it's their whole setup that gives it a PPF Efficacy of 2.5 μmol/joule. Curious to see what Growopz comes out with on their new lights.

    Guys you just dont realize the prices of these units. Keep in mind this is top of the line tech almost. If you buy direct from HLG its $1050 which is roughly R15 000 then add postage and 20% import duty on led fittings and congrats its R18 000 for the light.

    Purchase and Sale

    Until they make the actual legislation the only legal thing is possession and growing in a "private space". Anything else and you're pushing your luck, luck which comes in the form of a cops discretion. They can almost make up any story declare you a dealer and smash your plants up. Even if you get the bogus charges dropped they'l have messed up your plants and broken equipment. You can sue them for it though, heard of a case where the cops had to return and pay for repairs on a machine used to make mandrax because they messed up the case... Have to just hurry up and wait for them to get the laws ready. Also that superlogic from the dagga couple...eish
  11. Yeah also keep in mind if the cops find any other illegal drugs they can try make a case of dealing against you. So this guy could've had a gram of coke on him and that would be enough to make a case. In court the accused can then call BS on that but in the mean time you get locked up and your stuff taken. https://www.gov.za/sites/default/files/a140_1992.pdf on page 11 section 21 I highly (pun intended) advise reading up on the drug dealing / trafficking laws so you cant get screwed by the cops.

    Black Friday Madness!!

    Yeah also chiming in to say I've had nothing but great service from Growguru and offering 25% off all of your stock is a great deal for the consumer and most likely a loss for them.

    Lights from Amazon

    I'm also doing it as a hobby too....turns out an expensive hobby though. 🤣 Try a bit of googling, I've seen some posts on forums of guys testing cheap options like these

    Lights from Amazon

    Those are crappy old tech LEDs. If you want LED grow lights your best price / option is to buy from growopz or build your own using quality cobs or quantum boards. You can grow under almost any LED but if you want sizable, dense frosty nugs you'l need the newest tech to do so and it's going to cost money. Cheap LEDS are only good for seedlings and clones in veg. You can grow full plants in veg but they will grow much slower under those floodlights than cobs or quantum boards. With LED the idea is that its costly upfront but saves you money over time with electricity costs and bulb replacements @Batista lumen ratings aren't an indication of usefulness for growing, you want ppfd or umol j

    Yeah mate had similar issues with runts and one seed had those white larvea in it that chowed the seed from the inside. So far only 8 of 12 seeds popped....pretty bad rate at that price.
