  1. 500 watt on what area? I use 430 watt on a 1.2x1.2 meter area and that is more then enough. Testing on reducing to 360 watt for same area... but the main issue with DIY lamps is, you guess your way through a grow on what distance to hang, or you get the tool to measure, what costs as much as a proper grow lamp. But the producers tell you in general what distance to hang for germ, veg and flower. You buy the lamps because of those information coming with. Since i measure the correct amount of light my autos grow 30 to 40% taller... and we still talk same time period. It went that far that i have to change my way of growing and try to learn how to reduce growing speed with light stress. But with the 8 plant max... i might just let them go undisturbed. The Bubblelicious i did outdoor last season, grew about 75cm tall. My indoor Bubblelicious, same Nirvana seeds, are over 1.20 in general, and not done yet 😂 Yes, it is very important to have the right spectrum, but you also need the right micro mol PAR on the plant or it will get stressed, to much or to little isnt to good and will affect the outcome.
  2. Depends... anything you burn and inhale is bad for your lungs. So if you are or were a cigarette smoker... smoking a joint, will not make the condition of your lungs much worse. 😁 If you never smoked before, dont start it for weed. Vaporizer for dab or bud.. pen or desk rig would be my recommendation. Consumables are difficult to dose, agree with @Fridgedoor Last eatables i made, butter and brownies mix. Ate one, not much after three hours, ate 2 more, had a sweet buzz for 5 hours. Considered them safe. Gave a friend some, he also smokes but 15 years younger. He came the next day and gave them back minus one 😂 he got knocked out for 6 hours and was not in the mood for another one. He never trusted me with ateables anymore after. What brings me to to much. There are 2 general conditions occuring Has many names, greenies, green fever,... you name it, somebody had it 😉 It likes to occur preferred in combination with alcohol. Weed and booze dont mix to well. Result is pale to green face and people sweat as the body goes into shock. Nasty head spin. As most try to ignore the condition, they start taking it serious when they start to vomit. If you get dizzy, lay down and put something below your feet to raise them above your head. Stay down till you feel better. Short snooze sorts it fastest. 30 mins you good. If you did had a sweat phase, mix 1 tea spoon of salt or sugar (depending availability and preference) into 1 liter of water and drink a glass, sorts your electrolytes back, which you lost over the sweat. Ate to much... person hardly responding The guy coming to the party and not getting the browny story, is most likely to get a face paint 😂 To my knowledge you cant eat enough to reach a letal dosage before you vomit of over eating. Had to much, keep calm and have a sleep, happens in this case by body fatique anyhow... will take some hours to get back to normal. You dont really give a rats ass while they paint your face either. 😁 i consume thc products for over 35 years now, never ever had a letal case around me because of marijuana consumption.
  3. Nothing beats the importance of light. Your harvest raises and falls with its handling. You can have a perfect grow light and still harvest less then a dude using his DIY light perfect. Light stress, to little or to much, will reduce your harvest. Light is the most tricky and the most rewarding if mastered.
  4. Intrnet search... you might have to look a bit to find somebody shipping to SA. That is the biggest issue.. 1 liter is about 25$ US. Shipping will be more expensive I get mine over my California PlanetExpress address
  5. PM, short word, we have serious PM in the Cape region. And you want to get your plants clean BEFORE you hang to dry. A budwash with bicarb of soda works but only if you had it on your leaves only... very difficult to get your buds clean clean with a wash. Working system to get them proper clean... Serenade Garden disease control. You have to import, but it leaves zero taste on your buds and cleans PM rather fast and well. For heavy infected plants, spray several times a day to a good run off and open your buds up soft by hand and wet the buds properly. I do those sprays during the 2 days dark. Havent lost a batch since i got my bottles 😊 I prefer my weed over dried then under dried. My Bovedas in general add moisture. And if i had a bag in a bad jar, the bag goes to the dumpster like the weed on the compost heap 😂 look that your storage jar are properly disinfected.
  6. With drying you do not need a monster air flow. Just enough to regulate your humidity and temp inside the dry box. No direct fan needed at all, just the tent fan, low entry and top exit. There are many recommendations how long you should dry.. the longer the better. What is sure, to fast drying and you get hay smell and the typical chlorophyll taste. I remove all fan leaves to dry, but not the sugar leaves. If you are in a wet area, you might want to snip more, if very dry, might even keep the fan leaves on the plant to slow down the drying process. I try to keep my drying material between 55 and 60% humidity. Beginning I prefer more around 55, end more 60. If you are dry before day 5 has passed, you are to quick. If you are in a arid area, put a pan of water in your drying tent and point air flow on it depending on your humidity reading. Also try to stay out of the +65% area.. to wet can cause monster problems. Temperature.. best taste results I have with 18-20 degrees and 7-14 days dry time. Growing a plant is one part, I even think the easiest part. The result of the smoke depends on your drying and curing procedure. Most people ruin their material in the last 2 steps.

    Mars 144

    Hi guys I sell my Mars 144 as I do a redesign of my grow areas. I bought the lamp 3 Jan 2020, so still some left of the 3 years SA warranty. Lamp comes with card and slip from Hydroponics.co.za. The lamp is perfect for a 1.2x0.6x1.8 grow tent and has cooling included. Add fan for the tent and a inside oscillating one and you have a running system, very low heat lamp: This is exactly the lamp I sell. The lamp also comes with the correct distance to hang for Germination, Veg and Flower Stage, PAR measured! 😁😎 Mars says it is equivalent to 800watt.. i wouldn't go that far ^^ but the lamp draws in Veg 179 Watt and 269 Watt in Flower mode including ventilation. I would prefer pickup ^^ then I do not have to find adequate shipping package for courier. Lamp has not a single scratch, all LEDs are in working order.
  9. They dont break the law for you. You declare value and content and are responsible for what you declare. You can go premium and pool parcels (up to 45 days storage) to save courier fees. Just with seeds, do not collect several parcels into one... they see seeds, they remove them. I just get another shipment of Serenade... so service works like a charm. I use bitcoin to pay them. You select what post service you want to use, they offer all options. If the seeds are stealth packed, just declare what item it is inside. Stealth packed seeds can also get pooled into one parcel. They dont see, they dont care.
  10. If they Fedex directly, yes, is save.. just the seeds need to be packed stealth!!!
  11. Yes, Planet Express.. just a remark to the service. Don't consolidate Seeds.. they do not send seeds further, so best is to send your seeds parcels further without letting PlanetExpress open them. Check that the seeds get send stealth or customs will confiscate them.
  12. I wrote my suggestion.. follow California.. treat it same as alcohol and tobacco.. generate tax and jobs instead of more police work load. but not sure what difference that page does ^^
  13. I use crypto currencies a bit to play around and it takes just seconds to finish the deal. All big Seed Banks accept it and my SA Credit Card didn't work international (non resident account).. one of the reasons I do not own a SA bank account anymore, was easier and cheaper to use my German bank account at the end. I like the simplicity to make a payment with crypto. You still enter way less information as with a CC purchase. Amount and the BTC transfer key.. and done. I like the concept behind crypto and use it because I think most currencies in the future will be block chain based. But if you don't like it.. don't use it ^^ for me it is just personal preference. And a international Bank Transfer is 50$ charges... the 3$ i pay for a crypto transfer still a lot cheaper (and a lot faster as IBT, they take around 5 days, I move money from my European Crypto Trader to Bank account in SA within 2 hours if needed).. if you send ETH.. we talk cents in transfer cost. There are pros and cons on both sides.. just go with what you like, I like new technologies ^^ and not paying monthly fees to a bank.. also a word.. crypto accounts have no running cost like banks charge. Banks rip you off.. happy I can leave those *censored* 😁 I have now also a CC running over crypto and just a Bank account left in Europe for just in case, but haven't used the Bank account in over a year. Usually pay friends EFT when they mail me some stuff and they don't have a Paypal or Skrill account. Hardly use it for anything else.
