    Oh, so sorry, what a big disappointment. Green, no gnat, mojo for the new grow in the new year. That is a big drag Hushpuppy, sorry.

    I can't complain too much as I did go to my partners gro-lab and did a nice harvest of the WR and BBP that we had there. We ended up with about a pound of dried bud each. I posted this pic in the harvest section but I will showe it here as it came from the girls in the preharvest orenge light. :icon_smile:

    So my partner decided that we should do some more renovations on the lab as the veg cabinets get real good ventilation and the "jungle" flower room doesn't get as good of ventilation. So we decided to switch the two rooms and then make the flower cabinets one big room. The problem is that the doors to the cabinets were always in the way whenever we had to work in there. :eek:

    Solution: open up the cabinets, move the wall out, and make them bigger. Then put sliding "pocket" doors on the face to allow full access without doors getting in the way. :hubba:

    So I haven't updated this journal in awhile as I have been more focused on my stealth grow. But the "Grow-Lab" is still up and running like a clock, producing ever nicer buddage with every grow. :icon_smile:

    I don't run this one as much as my partner does now but I still have an integral part in its "growth". Much to my sadness, we have stopped running the famed and loved Blueberry Punch and are moving on to new strains. The latest strain that is working right now is Pineapple Chunk. It is proving to be a strong grower with Sativa dominant qualities but some nice buds that are about the size of the old "pineapple grenade". Unlike the grenade, the "Chunk" won't blow you away. Really nice clear heady high. :) Here are a few pics:

    I know I am responding to a older post.

    The veg dryer in post 14 by hushpuppy is good for lower humidity places. The metal slide is for collecting heat/ uv and heat flows up the slide thru the slot in the box below the racks. This causes a warm thermal up draft for drying the veges.

    It is more effictive if built in a slide/box form with plexiglass over the slide with an opening at the bottom and connected directly to the slot below the racks. If slide under plexi is painted black and set into the correct position to the sun, it will create a drying effect that will allow it to compete with Excaliber and other high grade eletric food dryers.

    Vegetables sliced uniformly will dry out in 12-18 hours without the use of electricity.

    Used for buds, I would imagine it would be like using a food dryer/ dehydrator and not be as good a curing.

    I have built one a few years ago but due to humid location (s.e. usa) found it worked well on garden herbs and other very light material but would not crisp up veges that had a high moisture content.( tomatos, squash...ect)

    Sorry again to bring up an older thread but that box/ dehydrator is used in places where electricity is not an option for helping with food storage and sunlight is plentiful. (and I like to give and recieve answers to questions:) )

    Thanks for the reply, and you are correct on that. I ended up not using the heating part at all as I found that I just didn't need it. I use instead packets of commercial dessicant to dry out the humid air that is coming into my cabinet and it works great. I can control how fast or slow they dry by adjusting the on/off cycle of the exaust fan on top of the cabinet. It took a little figuring to get the cycles down for the different amounts of bud in the cab but I got a good schedule for it now :)

    Awesome grow journal! I really enjoyed reading it and following along. I was curious tho, you said this medium was coco with hydroton, but yet its in the totes as if it were an areoponics type system? Forgive me for coming across noob, but I really like your set up, and was curious, what exact type of hydro method is this called? From what i've read, you have hydroton mixed coco coir in buckets, and then at the bottom have misters for the roots? Or is it just a bucket sitting above a reservoir under an air stone? Or is this a Drip system that is just simply in coco and hydroton, and in totes with its own resivoir? If so, very interesting... My drip systems, I usually have in a big tub and just have em drip in buckets filled with hydroton, all using one great big rez. Never seen it like this, I LIKE IT!

    awesome set up!!! is that a double scrogg screen i see? looks interesting, how does that work compaired to a single screen scrogg? great lookin buds there too, i just got myself a tent and im already seeing the difference, its amazing. i doubt ill do a scrogg again, well at least not a multi plant per screen scrogg, maybe single screen per plant. id love to know more about that double screen set up, seems like it adds way more support helps achieve a larger, more even spread.

    Been doing this for 5 years now and LOVE this tech.! 2 to 4 new tops at every pinch, fim. do indoor and out. AMAZING how fat a plant can get by doing this every couple weeks on a long outdoor grow. A penny doubled everyday for 1 month will make u a multi millionare. fim works great, not talked about much though. i like the drawing. i pinch at center of bulb. avg. 3 new tops ea. pinch..

    Lol, thanks. It really is a passion for me. If I was in a legal state, I would be running a full time commercial grow. All I can do now is my small indoor garden. :)
