    2Lf. I like the custom sizing idea. I used paracord on the x-axis and a poly string on the y-axis. On each intersection, I looped the string around the paracord so it would slide easily, but with enough bite to hold in place once slid. Most of my adjusting is by squinching or twisting the plant stems. It could be better but it works. I'm curious how yours works out.

    Stinky mentioned having a stadium canopy in one post. In Ver 2.0 I want an X made of two bow shaped pieces to even the canopy top with the LED output. My LED light has a hot spot in the middle, so dead center is where the runt goes to catch back up. In Ver 2.0, I'm making a bunch of elastic bungie cords with S hooks and will slip one in wherever I need. I will soon be needing a dry rack so I will re-use the current grid for hanging the blossomed ladies out to dry.

    I think like a weed when I come up with these ideas. If I wanted more light but not too much, where would I want to sit in the crowd? Yes, I really need to get out more, but February. I really like your idea of customizing the grid size. Hmmm.

    While the garage looks big, It is half of what it was. Space was designed for 8 lights and I'm only running 4 lights. There's not enough demand to run more

    Start U a veggie garden in there Umbra !- Maybe find a market for micro or baby greens - Join a local farmers market and grow some exotic Chit ?-- Repurpose the grow !
    U can slide back into growing more or less weed as needed !-- It may not be pot but it might help keep the lights on and help feed U - U don't eat enough veggies ?- U should be able to go to the garage and pick U a salad whenever want !--
    I'd get some giant mutant Purple hanging strawberries or something strange !- They got some kinda berry in China that U eat one and everything taste sweet for awhile !-- Lots of strange chit in Central and South America !- That's what I'd do or maybe start cooking shine ?

    Edit :--U need to keep that capacity cause sometimes new markets open in a round about way !- U can't predict these things !-
    I've heard of small farmers banding together in Farm Coops to reach markets none of them alone could reach !- Maybe one day pot farmers do something like that ?- I'm talking about in public - Not on the down low !

    Rain stopped !- Dogs still don't want to go back out !- They might get wet !-- Need to go check bloom -- Blooming in a corner in about a 40 foot travel trailer -- I get stuck here I'm need more lights !-- I might even end up exceeding the legal plant count ?-- Maybe !-- Math ain't really my thing !

    OK off to look for amber !

    I can just run veggies in my back yard, I don't need an indoor veggie garden. LOL There are so many roadside stands out here and farmers growing food that a micro grow or baby greens really doesn't make much sense. If gardening is your hobby, and you like eating what you grow, you are set here. But to make money at it, would be a waste of time and energy. Other people have suggested something similar with mushrooms, but I can buy chanterelles, morels, shitake, chicken in the woods, and just about any mushroom at the grocery store out here.

    Wonder if a Briggs and Stratton 3 and a half horse power side shaft engine would turn 2 or 3 auto alternators ?- I guess it wouldn't have to be a side shaft - alternators can be mounted any direction ?- Anyway - One alternator feeding one deep cycle marine battery - that power ran thru DC/A.C. inverter to run One circuit ?-- With several circuits ?-- I'm in the country I might lose power !- Big generators are expensive !- How much ethenol can I put in the gas for a mower engine ? --Inverters is your friend in a disaster !---Ran a fan/ radio and lamp off a car battery for almost 2 weeks after Katrina !
    Edit -- I realize that Umbra ! -- Things are gonna change and get much harder for awhile -- U got mad skills U don't need me telling U what to do !- Totally different economy or lack of one down here !- This Carona virus just got my survival skills out giving them the once over !-- PTSD from post Katrina kicking in !- No power - no communication with the outside world !- Each community/neighborhood cut off from getting in or out !-- We never lost running water or things would have got desparate real quick !-- My mind is stuck in --if I had to endure that again for an extended period what could I do to make it easier to survive ? --

    Umbra, maybe you should divide that room and give master classes to folks who could and would benefit from it? You could help a lot of people help themselves. That's probably not a viable idea in your own spot though.... Just a thought.

    Good morning everyone. I'm finally trimming out the grow room. I have removed about half the foliage so far and from the top you can't tell. If I finish in time Harley is going to the vet. If not, maybe tomorrow.

    There's those amongst us that can teach U all about grow your own fungi !- Such as those huge portabellas ?- I mean I'm sure the techniques would transfer to things like that ?
    I'm not vegan or vegetarian or one those weird food cults like they got !--I will throw down on a grilled portabella smothered in butter with some nice seasonings - and some carmelized onion gravy !- That'll work !- I broil some those white button mushrooms in some seasoned butter just give me a fork !-- or we could throw some these here crawfish tails and shrimp in with them ?-Ain't afraid of no pork either !-- And bacon be thy name !-- Work it Other Keef !

    Keef that purple haze is from me in seed form, i told everyone that it had hermied on me too. Sorry, but mine had one nanner that i could find and I like the smoke.. was it bad, did you leak pollen?
    Umbra, so sorry, that is frustrating.
    I went to the doc and 8 am, she said, boy you are doing so well. I said it's the pot. Making chicken corn chowder for dinner with a salad. It is sunny but cold here. Got a cheesecake for the lady to celebrate her going home. The man told me he would cook dinner last night, i was s o happy, then he asked me how to do everything... oh well, it was a nice thought. I may never cook again. They only have a week left.
    Stock market has been high for a long time, i don't know if it is a correction or the virus. They say it is the virus, and keef says it is so i guess it is. Thank you jesus for Lambs bread, or Rasta, or whomever.
