    just got first electric bill

    read the sticker on your ballasts. If you run 240 volt you will NOT drop your bill. You will only be able to run more lights on the same amperage circuit. Do a search on OHMS LAW and it will explain that regardless of your voltage the usage will be the same. let me find a blurb real quick...

    Thoughts: 1K HPS Height from canopy?

    As the title suggests. I've done some testing but I'm curious on others. How High from the canopy would you hang a 1000Watt HPS from the canopy. More info if you believe it matters. 1: Light reflector is a Yield Master 6" sunlight reflector 2: It is NOT cooled 3: It does NOT have a glass...

    ahh, what strain is it?? that's a great question. It's been around for quite along time and over the years I think it's true genetics have changed. From memory it's a cross. I only know the female mom came from "Pine Cone" I have no idea what the cross male was. I'll get some new pix up when...

    Flushing

    the theory of flushing for two weeks. I would assume that only applies to soil grown? I usually flush for 2-3 days tops. I've also harvested with nutes up to the day of harvest. Seems to my palate that the cure is what enhances the flavor. If, in fact, I was to choose to always flush I can't...

    Why do you keep your Ph so low?

    I'll chime in with some agreement as well as disagreement. I have an aeroflo2 system and I've had good luck running my strain at 6.0-6.5.. After finally finding a happy nute strength I've started running between 5.5-6.2 just for comparisons sake. I've found fantastic growth throughout the range...

    Spots on leaves - What do you think?

    Hmmm, Perhaps I'm just leaning my ph in the wrong direction. It's a bummer to see the spots come on my third week of flowering each time. Tonight I'm picking up a 44 gallon brute garbage can from lowes to use as a holding tank so my chlorinated h2o has time to settle and let the chlorine...

    Spots on leaves - What do you think?

    That's what I did when I was in rockwool but in the aeroflo with hydroton I got some ph frying and leaf damage anywhere 5.8 or below. plenty of water agitation along with small bubbles when the water falls from the tubes to the resiviour. every five to seven days I drain system...
