  1. Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated 🙂 We'll add a apps section and add leafy. Personally use it too - It's what we are basing our app off of but more tailed to SA. Some big news around the app coming soon! On another note - we have had quite a few queries for different spectrums aside from our 3000k, hence we will now bring in what ever you guys want - 3000k, 3500k, 4000k and 5000k. On our LED grow light product pages, you can now select the desired spectrum - https://www.cannabist.co.za/product-category/led-grow-lights/
  2. Hey @420SA We originally started growing a few years back with a variant of SubCools super soil, similar to the recipe in the below video. Some strains took really well to it, others didn't and it was a bit too harsh. This article sums up some really good points from the original recipe - https://buildasoil.com/blogs/news/12533881-whats-so-cool-about-super-soil-the-super-soil-recipe-breakdow. Summed up, we took majority of the most popular mixes out there - there are so many 🙂 and they keep evolving, compared and refined over the years to find the best all rounder mix that worked for us. When you want to commercialism a product, cost really plays a big part hence we had to further refine to what products are readily available in South Africa. Ultimately we have refined our mix to a very good all rounder, tailored to what we have found works well for all the strains we have tested. In terms of feeding, you can expect a very good yield without having to top-dress - The mix is aimed at new/hobby growers, enabling people to grow with the least amount of effort and problems - just good old fashioned healthy plants. However a few mates that we used to mix for before starting cannabist.co.za did feed with nutes, we have as well. If you do, start off week and your plants will guide you 🙂 For those that would like to check out our soils, we only mix up a seedling starter soil and then a hot mix (Super soil): https://www.cannabist.co.za/product-category/super-soils/ We need to update the descriptors on the site, just hectic atm. We'll get there, thanks for the interest.
  3. Hi guys, We put together a list of some of our favorite grow resources - Split into reading and videos. We'll be doing the same with our light resources, e.g. Migro, growmou5, ledgardener ... https://www.cannabist.co.za/cannabis-grow-tips/ We'd love it if you have any helpful resources to add to the list. Drop us a comment, there's always something to learn. We are also building a grow login app, basically to help track your grow (I always forget when they crack, when I flip them..). If anyone has some cool ideas - we listening. Will have more news on the app in the coming weeks. Lastly we are expanding our range with additional grow tents. Will be some sale prices when they up so subscribe.
  4. Awesome to be on board and thanks for the shout out 🙂
  5. Hey @PsyCLown and thanks for reaching out to us. Helps us improve our product descriptions and better explaining things 🙂 Yes, both come with Meanwell ELG A drivers with built in potentiometer / dimming. The 130w come with the Meanwell ELG-150-C1400A and 2.5m power cable. The 230w comes with the Meanwell ELG-240-48A and 3m power cable. The backing plate for both is 1.5 mm plasma cut aluminium plate, the 130w is passive cooled via the large surface area, so the backing plate is the heatink. We have done many grows with them and have not run into and temp problems. Also all our purchases so far, the guys are happy so we are confident that you wont have a issue. 230w is actively cooled by a fan mounted to the backing plate. All our led quantum boards are plug and play, nothing to do on your side. We'll put up some more pics on Monday. Regarding the v2, we dubbed them v2 (Yes we understand that its kinda trending at the moment), as we switched out the driver from HLG to ELG, all are now dimmable, instead of aluminium u-channel as the backing / heatsink, we are having the plates cut properly. Will chat to the guys, you raise a valid point. We are doing an article on why we went with the LM561C diodes and will post the link here on 420sa. Basically for us to build the lights using the LM301B, labor will be more than doubled for like a 6.95% lm/w increase and we would need more surface area to disperse heat, driving up costs. We are looking at using the LM301B for some seedling/cloning lights. Hope this helps.
