Not that I condone it but we use to push the dumpsters behind shopping malls under the lights and stack shopping carts till we could un wire them, in fact that's how we learned to wire 240v..... They where little 75w hps but then we realized the white lights on road signs where 250w halides, being the degenerate little shit smears we where we would break the bulb them when hyways dep fixed we would bring a tire rubber boots and a machete....brand new 250w...

Lots of people miss out on the learning curve of building outside the hydro store over priced realm. Glad to see ya having fun and kickin ass over here! I'll take the full read when I get a few.

Cheers
I figured most growers are the resourceful type, open when opportunity comes knocking. You sound like the kinda kid I wouldve grown up with. hydro stores are fine when you need that whatchamawidget that you cant get anywhere else or dont have time to wait for shipping, outside of that, theyre great to the established growers as well. I just felt that hydro was cramping my style which is mostly i just wanna water every few days and let the herd take care of the rest. Read that as lazy or smart lol

thanks for the sub!

wow, no shit! i didnt realize i was a full year in on this thing.

All told, the dwc stuff is mostly collecting dust,but the pumps and other shit are handy in so many situations, Im glad i started there. I pcked up a lil mini tote to experiment on a bubble cloner again, I like the super fast roots, and need an excuse to get this GH nute stuff outta the cabnet and use it. Thing is my domes dont fit and Im kinda not wanting to cut them up to make it work.

Anyways, the only stuff im not using on occasion is my ppm meter since going to organix. The organics route is a completely different flavor profile in the weed. The mollasses I use in the teas are DEFINTELY apparent when smoking, along with a far smoother smoke on the lungs.

I have maybe 3500 invested so far, but I honestly lost track after I broke even. Im building some 4x4 raised beds for the upcoming spring and Im gonna try a coots mix from some place where you build a soil yourself. Ill be making that next month and prolly do a lil pic tute on it.

either way , Ive run into so many obstacles the last 6 months and its been really fun learning from them. Borg, microherd management, soil amendments and fish sauces when in doubt,sst's all kinda whacky ideas from ic keeps me coming back here to share with yall.

post up some of your own stuff here anytime. this is my kinda catchall thread now and make sure to come by the new thread where I go vertical for the first time as well.

I began growing in 2000 with three plants and one light.

It was not until 2011 that I quit my day job and went full time gardening. Seems there are many ways to do this right but even more ways to destroy harvests.

In the end we both enjoy fine smoke with stacked shelves of used equipment no longer needed.

As for monocropping, I germinated 200 seeds donated by folks that all swore they were great. The final winner was cloned and grown exclusively for four years. That plant enabled me to go full time with confidence.

Picture of a bud under the fourth generation light system.

Hey Boyd, just came across your thread. Love the progress you've made since the beginning. I was just curious about that first grow. The one you called mideys with seeds. Do you remember how she smoked and what were you letting her go for? I know back in the day my worst outdoor was better than most dealers best mid. Could've easily sold as loud/gas, even with seeds.

That was pretty good for a first grow, way better than mine.. lol My first grow was an outdoor grow, ended up with about 3 ounces from like 4 plants in pots. Which in my opinion is real shitty for outdoor, especially knowing all that I know now.
