    I think I don't need to say much about @PsyCLown He's one of our most active members on the community. I challenge you to find a thread in the last year that doesn't have his input. The dude is keen to help EVERYONE .... That's exactly the kind of irie vibes we want around here on the forum so it was just a matter of time before he became a mod. Thanks for joining the crew @PsyCLown

    Brother, I've checked your cupboard build and I take my hat out for your effort. I think having the cupboard on the balcony is a bad idea. I'm an indoor durban grower and it's difficult keeping temps down inside the house leave alone the balcony. The plants are going to be stressed out in there and produce poor results. It's also going to be an eyeball opening the grow cupboard at night amongst other issues. You better off leaving the structure of that cupboard there as a grow shelf and grow the plants in it with the sun. You could put a sun net on all the open sides to increase privacy and give the plants the greenhouse feel. I've grown many plants outdoor that the buds look indoor. Don't be down and think we not having faith. You should try convince your wife to give you a small space inside, use bribery, blackmail, whatever... from there you can slowly start taking over till half your house is dedicated to growing

    I agree with what @greenkush has said. Another thing to keep in mind, if you want to compare LED lights between one another is whether the manufacturer provides the average efficiency or just the peak efficiency. Majority provide the peak figures, I feel the average is more accurate as majority of people do not grow a single plant directly under the light and often have multiple lights to cover a certian area. Having the individual QB288 boards will provide you with more flexibility in terms of controlling your spread, you can move the lights around as needed to try and maintain an even PPFD throughout your grow area. It also provides you with the flexibility to increase the height on an individual board if you have a part (or few) which are growing much taller than the rest. Heatsinks are often an issue due to their weight, makes the shipping crazy expensive but you can get creative and find DIY ways to cool them cheaply without issues. In fact cool them better than the original heatsinks the manufacturers provide (active though, but still... can always add some redundancy if you'd like).

    What exactly is going to go wrong ? Mount strips, hook up wires, connect driver, plug into power outlet.

    I will take some pictures today of each tree and start a journal of some sorts. The internet is very intermittent the last day or say. I have created an entire thread only for it not to be posted as the internet went off in the time of hitting the send button. Here are just some pictures I recently took. These are 3 I flipped recently. Wedding gelato, lemon haze and a sour grape. These 3 were forced into flower on 10 January 2020 The purple one was a Elixer cbd auto which was harvested in December and is busy curing.

    I water multiple times a day without issues and without perlite, and also you should never let your coco dry out its actually a pretty bad practice due to the very nature of coco.

    As @PsyCLown if you have relatively large surface area to cover then you'll need a few boards, the ones from alibaba specifically meiju are very good, I currently run two boards per side in my 2.4x1.2, effectively 600 watts per side. I have now recently purchase an extra 240 watt per side bringing it up to 840watts (true wall watts). The reason for my expansion was due to form factor of my boards not covering the edges are they are rectangular. Don't get me wrong these boards have done an amazing job at producing solid hard nuggets, but the hanging is a pain and as you can see in the corner and the center there are dark spots, however that is nobodies fault but my own. So I recently purchase two sets of the following boards These boards are the LM301B spec didoes and the previous are LM 561 C . I will be looking at upgrading my LM 561 C boards to LM 301B/H when funds and time permits. The nice thing with these types of boards (I am more specifically referring to samsung diodes) is that you can run them cooler and softer and still get amazing results due to their efficiency per watt. You've got to stop thinking in terms of wattage and just because you have 10,000 watts you're better off, because that is nowhere near the case, it boils down as to how effective your fixture is at converting watts to usable light and that is where the umol/J factor comes in, a standard HPS is 1.4-1.8 umol/J, HLG 550 v2 Rspec is 2.6 umol/J. So immediately you can see that the HLG will outperform the HPS. The only draw back of LED is it does not have the same canopy penetration as HPS, but if you scrogg or whatever you'll be fine, even so you will still get huge colas if you don't scrogg.

    You're late in flower now so any spray isn't a good idea at all. If only 1 branch is affected I suggest cutting your losses and cutting that branch. If more than 1 branch is affected you basically have 2 options: You manually attempt to remove as many mites as possible with your hands. I suggest wiping all the affected leaves with a small piece of cloth dipped in h202 solution (30ml of h202 per 1 litre (3% H202) but you'll need to keep doing this every few days now as the chances of getting rid of all of them is pretty low when removing by hand. Get your plant into a small sealed container and fill the container with CO2. Not really possible for most people to do but it is an option...

    Where there is a will there is a way. That spacetote plant looks blerrie good man, irrespective of where or how it was grown. It shows what can be done. Imagine what can be done with a steel cupboard.... Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Decoy back in the illegal days were very different... I had a big fish tank with water falls and alot of airstones to camouflage the strange sounds coming from the grow cupboard I grew in. Worked like a charm...

    I've posted my decoy plants before. It's a plant grown outdoors that flowers whilst your gals indoors are flowering. So when the indoor gals start to stink up the neighborhood and by chance someone follows the smell and peeps into your yard... They see your outdoor plants and associate the smell with that plant.

    TouchΓ© and in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never share And no one dared Disturb the sound of silence "Fools, " said I, "You do not know Silence, like a cancer, grows Hear my words that I might teach you Take my arms that I might reach you" But my words, like silent raindrops fell And echoed in the wells, of silence And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made And the sign flashed out its warning In the words that it was forming And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls And tenement halls" And whispered in the sounds of silence Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. From a different time. Some of the most evocative lyrics ever even today. The state of nature conservation in our country is...''like a cancer'' Hats off to those involved trying to protect what little is left. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Sup Guys. 1 thing I know is how to grow weed. But I know nothing related beyond that. Other guys from other places in SA and their cannabis journey. I know more about the crazy Americans. We are all of different upbringings and do things a little different... I grew up smoking a DP in a pipe, that instant headrush that got you instantly high. Smoking weed was cheaper then smoking cigarettes. How things have changed! I have no knowledge how guys from out of durban smoked or even what they smoked. How's about sharing just a little of your cannabis roots?

    Check out KIS organics pod cast on YouTube. Start at the beginning. There is a lot of info on organic growing. Also books like teaming with microbes, teaming with nutrients and teaming with fungi by Jeff Lowenfels. There are allot of different views on these podcasts. And there are many different ways of enriching soils. But it is good to here views from people who have been growing for 40 plus years. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    No matter what "they" say, i see there is ample evidence from many cancer patients that Strawberry Ferminized has helped them recover from the disease. The studies need to catch up with the results so more people have access.

    I agree, coco let's so much water through that it really isn't necessary for the perlite. I actually feel that coco perlite drains way to fast.

    I'd definitely never recommend it to any soil growers as it has citric acid, but if you're doing DWC or soilless it's simply a bloom booster for when you do your initial switch to flower.

    So an LED build generally consists of the LED's (in this case, strips or quantum boards.... I vote quantum boards), heatsinks / cooling and a driver. Then wires to wire it all up and that's really it. When it comes to LED's, they're not all the same. The actual LED diode itself makes all the difference. In terms of costs if a diodes die, pretty cheap. You'll probably pay more on shipping. I haven't actually tried to source the individual diodes locally but I'm sure one could get then without too much fuss. In terms of replacing the actual diode, if you can solder and you're comfortable with SMD then it won't be difficult at all. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 Pro using Tapatalk

    What stage of growth are you in? Neem oil is a preventative and wont treat infestations. Pyrol will do that. The Margaret Roberts or Ludwigs spray will also do the trick but it stinks, rather spend a bit more on Pyrol. I used to stay in Table View and the builders warehouse there used to stock it. Not sure if it still does, nevertheless you wont struggle finding it in the cape

    Hey all. First post. I"m a bit of a noob but my wife has vetoed planting cannabis till the law changes. In the meantime I'm scratching the itch by growing these. I've also planted some tomatoes and green beans. Feedback most welcome

    I must say that in veg, the plants, even big ones, really don't chow that much and you can get away with practically nothing... But in bloom, especially the first few weeks... My word do they eat!! Root mass explodes, stem elongation, hormone changes... The plant goes through puberty and eats like a teenager who has never seen food before. But then after a few weeks feeding stabilizes and slows down a bit. So I like to add MPK boosters in early bloom and then again closer to the end of flower just incase.

    Waddup good people Check out my steel cupboard, I've mostly used it for seed starting and I'm having a go with some clones now. (Clones are looking lank weird though)πŸ™ˆ I still need to cut a hole in the side or top for extraction, so I just keep the doors slightly open at the moment. Pics 1&2 before I cleaned,sterilized,painted So I'm using a "burn blanket" to contain the light inside. It doesn't get hot at all as I've got some cheapy china town plant leds and a PC fan for some wind. The grow cupboard worked out pretty well, I'll do a grow report and show you guys how my 1st plant looks. Peace

    Not many are sure about me, even people who kinda know me are not to certain. An activist who came through to a gig was a bit nervous about being in my presence, I said that is good, he knows his place. But I am a gentleman to gentlemen, businessmen, no contract necessary!!!!! I believe in a handshake, words and loyalty. And i am fucken funny even in deathly situations, missing teeth, blood dripping I will always crack a joke. i often laugh at my own jokes. Enjoy this ride until they ban me again.

    @Nostrovia sorry for the loss bru It hurtz when that happens and yes, you can charge them with theft! It is private property. Would be a better result if you had instant gratification, like placing claymores in your garden. "An arm for an arm".

    Looking for a cutting of salvia and thought this would be a good place to ask. I sadly lost my motherplant after 18 years of growth and would love to get a cutting from somewhere. Anyone?

    Always best to take pics with grow lights off. Shows overall health better. The plant is looking healthy and happy. Maybe inspect that top better for bugs with a loupe although highly unlikely. You probably damaged it by mistake or something. You still in early flower, I would just cut off the damaged part of that top. You should be experiencing alot of rapid growth you won't even notice it missing in a week or 2. Also just make it a habit to check the Ph of the runoff when ever you start seeing anything weird.

    I found it at builders. Although I'll add that you can quite easily cut it out as an ingredient without effecting the soil really.

    I would suggest only grow autos if you have no choice and can't grow photos due to light pollution issues, off season grow etc. Photos provide the dank more consistently, autos are mediocre for the most part. We are now still in the growing season so rock some photos. If you can afford to buy a pack now's the time... You will get your money back 100 fold in BUD

    I must say i love all of FOGFAs initiatives and what they stand for - i believe that clubs (with very good security) will be the way to go in this legal limbo period provided we can settle some sort of paperwork or recorded agreement that authorities understand the operations of the establishment and agree to leave us alone , and even beyond legal regulation, as has been mentioned, the clubs would just gain in popularity and end up as similar to a "bar" for the cannabis community I also think that having alot of small , closely grouped private clubs could benefit in raising the awareness and breaking the stereotype we are all trying so hard to by showing whoever needs proof that we can peacefully assemble without any harm or damage to people and property as well as the fact that information can be provided in return from clubs to writers of legislature as guidelines as to what does and doesnt work πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ a wise man once said all it takes is one brave soul πŸ’šπŸ”₯
