  1. You can always force hermie and create feminized seeds if you're short on space. It is what I will be trying this season. Helps a lot to be able to essentially shut down your operation during summer months and always have a backup for your favourite genetics.
  2. Howzit! Looking good, love the DIY. Just a note one the DHT11's, I find that they don't keep their accuracy and the DHT22 function much better - they're so cheap its easy to sort out. The DSB temp probes are also great because they give really good temp readings, and you can have 3, one by the roots, one by the canopy and one above the canopy - and they are waterproof! As for the coco, the hydroponics shop in Claremont has a great organic promix that works really well and is already buffered. My last grow in it gave great results.
  3. What happened to the exchange @420SA?

    LED vs HPS

    Yeah I have a temp probe in my canopy - running my lights at around 70% (3x Vero29 3500K COBs being driven at 2.1a). My canopy temp is around 2 degrees hotter than the probe at the pot level.
  5. Pure coco will retain more water than soil. OP has mixed 30/40% perlite which should help. My concern was actually way more about the plastic pots as they don't breath well - even with holes. It would make sense that it only an issue now (mid-winter). It is colder, so less evaporation happens off of the soil medium, and the plant transpires less because it is cold. Which means the plant pulls less water out of the medium. To give an example, I have other plants I grow in plastic pots. I had to water them everyday in summer, and only once a week at the moment - I actually killed a plant by water twice a week at the moment. However, it could be something else, the only way to really test is to see if the same thing happens to the fabric pots in the same circumstances
  6. It looks kind of like over-watering, is why I asked. But Im not the most experienced grower.
  7. How dry are they at watering? What kind of pots do you have them in?

    High all

    Whats your setup? If you don't have one yet, what is your budget?
  9. One should keep their words sweet in the event one is forced to eat them.

    Yeah, but you can get them for about R3k from china, locally they cost around R7k. But like I said, you pay for the convenience of having someone who knows what they are doing assembling, and warranties - granted you could just replace the entire unit for the same price if something went wrong on the DIY route lol.

    Eish China import is such a mission. LoL I bought a Mars Hydro ii 700w light, it now finds a space in my closet. Sent from my G3312 using Tapatalk Lol! You can also buy the exact cob setup I have from china, at a fraction of the local price. And QB if you look around. But if you suck at DIY or have no idea what to order, then you pay a local premium for someone who does, like growopz - they have good stuff.

    Rather go t5, way better. I'd honestly recommend going for LED. You can get from growopz, they make good stuff. But you can also import stuff from china for cheap. Bit of a learning curve but once you figure it out you can probably save a ton of money.
