      I'm considering seeing if I can trade in my cmH setup for the dual version for the Dark Harvest GC... if I do, Ill run the Phillips 4200 for veg and 3100 for flower - unless anyone has used the hortilux lamps and highly recommends - my hydro store just got them in...

      If I pull the trigger, this lets me move my LED into my smaller tent and run a couple of autos in parallel! I also have some BioDiesel and Chocolope bagseed, which are two of my absolute favorites...

      Picked up some BioDiesel, Double Black Domina, and black mamba flower yesterday. Also picked up some VYB Float gummies...

      I don't know if it was the gummies, or the heavy indica genetics of the Double Black Domina but I was fast asleep on the couch before the wife and I got 45 mins into a movie!

        Would be really fun to participate. My current grows will all be done by then but promised the wife we could go out of town in August. So will not be able to have anything going then.

            Yeah, I am going to be sad for two months with no plants to watch over...
            But just 86 days...

            Come to think about it, my Power Africa "Fast" will probably still be ripening by then.

            DankwingDuck It is an excellent problem to have... I suspect you'll have it soon! I am certainly not complaining! And yeah, I don't buy dispensary bud anymore

            Tika me too

            Well, I am thinking about probably $1500 in lights... Its a little more than just a replacement bottle of pH Down

            But you are lucky! And you should cherish her!

            I’m trying to get. 2500$ solar panel system so I understand your struggle XD

            As far as being lucky i just switched from a hobby that was really expensive. Asking for a $3000 solar system is alot easier than asking for a $27k engine rebuild every year. I was a big drag racer till i got hurt to bad and lost my license due to my meds.

              It would be nice to join, but i don't have a indoor setup yet, im doing outdoors in 15" pots and the Sun is not helping. First timer.

                That’s really the best way to grow if you can . No store bought light can beat the sun . Some come close but nothing beats nature . Maybe the guys will plan the next challenge for start of spring so outdoor people can join too . Then we can settle the old nature vs nurture debate .

                I guess the problem with outdoor for the challenge is that you can’t control the veg vs bloom cycle . It’s going to bloom when it is ready to and not a day sooner.

                For yields thats not fair. Lol lets have one yields vs end results. Thats what i want to see.

                  Just a heads up....I am unfortunately going to have to back out of this experiment. I am going to follow the progress however.

                    Guys it is my understanding that this is a challenge not a competition yes we will compare yield but really what we are doing is growing in all different styles of growing in dirt ,in coco,and in hydro and the use of nutrients what types we use and how much ,lighting ,we will be reporting everything successes and mistakes, this grow is about knowledge not bragging rights . now I know their will be some friendly teasing/joking were humans its what we do but its all in fun . I'm in this challenge for the knowledge but if it will make you feel better you can all do better than me ok

                      That's insane. I paid 50 bucks for thc cbd microbes mold water test everything I wanted except terpene profile which was only another 25 bucks. Plus labs are very accurate within .5% of each other.

                      Ive been looking up labs in the area but was thinking if there was an affordable home test then that would put everyone on the same level. there could be variability across different labs...

                      I know if I grow a good crop the thc will be fine , the only way to obtain the stated thc is to grow perfection then choose the best plant and half it tested , I test it by smoking a j first time of the day then I note how it affects me , I understand what you meant redwasp there is to much that affects yield ,but with this being a challenge and trusting others to be truthful I think we are going to have a ton of ideas and methods of growing and thats why I'm doing it

                    Well i wish i could do this just so we would have some hard numbers. Wish we could easily compare yields, thc, cbd, flavor, perceived quality etc etc etc. Would be nice. Then next we could each change just 1 small thing and see what happens. In the future that will be possible. Just not sure we can yet.
