First two pics are the Chem Brutus OG waking from it’s five day dirt nap. Hope it’s a girl 🤞🏻




Pic 3 is from a few beans I found while trimming some Da Bear buds a little while back. I’m not sure what it’s doing and it doesn’t quite show it as well as in the real.

Pic 4 Still waiting for, what I’ll call for now, the Lemon Dream to dip her roots into the nute solution.


Pic 5, the hydro Lemon Skunk seems to be growing strangely as well. But it’s finally growing 👍🏻

Lastly, my neighborhood idiot life extenders 😉

The ECSD is finishing a bit prematurely, I knocked over a fan and of course it landed right on it 🙄
It seemed ok but now it’s drying up like it wasn’t watered. The base of the stem got pushed sideways a bit from the fan. Probably tore some/too many roots loose underground 🤷🏻‍♂️

She wasn’t really a good specimen anyway. A little too much neglect from life getting hectic.
One down a few more to go and then it’s lights out in that room 😕

My biggest customer screwed me this past month because his ol lady is freaking out about corona. Wouldn’t let him out or me in 🙄

Can’t afford your run ALL the lights for people who aren’t buying. My nose has been at the water level for far too long since everyone decided they wanted CRAPPIER & MORE EXPENSIVE weed than what I provide... fucking dumbasses 🖕🏻

So now it’ll be for just myself and two friends who aren’t morons.

No idea why the site is turning all my pics sideways 🤪

Gonna chop the first Lemon Dream tonight.

She might look Indica, but 11 weeks says otherwise. Good amount of amber 👍🏻

Pic one is the Lemon Dream. Lemon Skunk is in the background.

Pics 2 & 3 are close ups.

Neither plant made all that much bud. They weren’t very big either.
All my soil plants sucked the big one this past round.

It’s enough to get a decent idea if I wanna run it again.

The Blue Dream filled the SCROG quite nicely. Waiting the extra week or so and trimming the canopy was a good decision.

Hopefully she doesn’t stretch too much more.

Here’s what the SCROG looked like on the 15th for comparison purposes.

She’s even got branches growing up and around the outside of the pvc frame 👍🏻

Before I go down the rabbit holes of LED threads, any opinions on Spider Farmer vs. Mars Hydro?

Since I’m downsizing I thought about buying a better LED unit and maybe 2’x4’x6.5’ tent.

If I can keep doing hydro like this I don’t need as many plants.

I also have an opportunity to supply a local greenhouse with sellable cuttings/plants. Still have to do a sit down with the owner though.

Anyone have any real life knowledge about that side of the industry.

Ever buy any rooted/potted cuttings?
What was the size?
Rock wool or potted?
PRICE?

AND...

I broke out the old aeroponic bucket cloner minus the pump.

All 3 are Blue Dream 😋

Picked through the Lemon Skunk buds a little before jarring.

I didn't count them but 25-30. There’s probably more in the buds yet.

They’re kinda small. Have to pop a few in a little while for “QC purposes“ 😉

Also put one of each of my care package in soil too.

Upgraded from a 18650 to a 26650. I’m hoping I can get through most of the week without charging now.

 So my ordeal with Morsen is finally over. And btw, don't ever buy a light or probably anything else from Morsen. The lights suck and so does customer service.

 

As I stated before, they were going to give me one of their new quantum boards as a replacement once they were in stock at Amazon.

 

Sounds good right?

 

Well, they finally put me in touch with their Amazon account rep. He emailed me, from a friggin hotmail account. Hotmail screams professionalism  :eek:

 

Then he states, that I have to order and pay for the new light and when I leave a review they will refund my money :wtf:

 

I don't think so mother f*****!

 

So I let both him and his CCP counterpart know that I would be calling Amazon for an A-Z Guarantee refund.

 

Shortly after I was done on the phone with Amazon, the CCP end of the deal replied to my email, the Amazon rep replied about an hour later, but this was already a done deal.

 

BTW, the Amazon rep tried to tell me I didn't understand him. I understand English perfectly.
I don't remember when I first started talking, I was pretty young then :wink: But it's been a good 50 years or so.

 

He had several remedies to offer me, now that it was too late. None of which was suitable btw.
It was also amazing that they could reply so quickly now that their collective tit was caught in the wringer.

Normally it took about a day & a half for them to reply, sometimes longer.

 

So my new SF-2000 should be here this afternoon... no more blurple yay!!!

 

I hope Trump initiates some kind of manufacturing boom in the US.
Aside from creating jobs that were shipped overseas by the previous administrations, we might actually be able to get quality merchandise for a change.

 

Remember when shit used to be made here? I do... and it was better.
There was no planned obsolescence. Things were made to last.

 

I doubt quality will go completely back to the way it was. But having jobs would be nice :wink:

Anyway...

I got my SF-2000 today and installed it about 15 minutes later.

Very sturdy, well built unit.

I emailed SF though. If you look at the pic, the center red diode on each half of the light is dim.
I’m hoping that since it’s the same led on both sides that it’s supposed to be that way?
But I can’t think of a reason why it would be that way on purpose?

SF got back to me sometime in the middle of the night.

The dim diodes are the IR.There is one for every 1K

 

SF-1000 = 1
SF-2000 = 2
SF-4000 = 4

 

I'm so glad that for once I didn't know what I was talking about

 

Also...

 

Now that the majority of the light is white. Those special LED glasses that I thought were a waste of money work perfectly.
The blurple made me want to throw the glasses across the room.

You couldn't see squat :(

If I wasn't downsizing :( I'd get a SF-4000 without hesitation.
