Less time equals less money on lights/nutes end of story for me.
I'm also for easy and mainlining is extra work for me.
Also your title asked why people don't use it so you are getting mostly negative opinions why most people don't use it. Had you phrased your title pros and con of mainlining or something similar you might have gotten a wider range of responses.
Possible I could have phrased it differently. There have been some pro and negative experiences from what people write. More negative mainly for the time factor it seems.
Im not sure but I get the feeling those who dont like the longer time may be growing cash crops not personal grows for medicine. Makes sense for sure for the cash croppers.
Im still undecided for my next run in a couple months.
Its just ironic that people who have no knowledge of it dismiss it. If you have tried it and dont care for it or like it based on having seen it or tried it is a valid opinion based on experience. The ones who dont and diss it probably still think the world is flat.
Thanks to those who actually have tried it for sharing your views.
