    How many watts for a 2x4 growspace

    To the OP: Perhaps you might be overthinking things? Suggest you simply cowboy up and buy a decent light, appropriate for a 2' x 4' space, and be done with it. It will cost you about $275 on Amazon, and take a couple of days to arrive. - Yes, you could save a few dollars on a similar 230W QB...

    How many watts for a 2x4 growspace

    I've done your homework for you... If you need a cost effective, state-of-the-art, high quality grow light (for a ~ 2' x 4' area), stop soul searching and purchase the Maxsisun MF2000. In my opinion, it's pretty much the best combination of price, performance, and quality available anywhere. I...

    Blue Ridge Beginnings... (First Grow)

    Day 18 Update Oh, the trials of a newbee... Finally dawned on me that my day 8 seedlings were drowning in the Burpee propagator, even with the lid off. Some beginning to go yellow. So, I transplanted them into 3 gal bags of dry potting mix (70% FF Ocean Forest; 15% pearlite; 15% coir) and put...

    Blue Ridge Beginnings... (First Grow)

    G'Day Marz, About Durban Poison: - How long is an indoor grow? - Any good seed source you would recommend? (I'm a novice, and my little bit of homework says that this landrace sativa? maybe ain't for beginners. Also, takes quite a while (200 + days?) to grow indoors. Still, I love sativa...

    First DWC. overwhelmed with names and chemicals and additives

    I just went through this... - The earlier cheap PH pens used a little calibration screw (mine sat dry for a couple of years and would drift aimlessly after trying to calibrate recently) - The current cheap PH pens are generally "self calibrating" (ie, place in calib fluid (eg 4.01) @ 25C (77F)...

    Greetings from South Africa

    Hey Marz, Welcome! Tell us about the SA cannabis cultivation favorites. I see Durban, etc in NL seed catalogs. (My very first growing experience was with "Tanzanian" seeds; supposedly high in CBD. Every single one was a herm; seeds everywhere...)

Reason: terrible back pain. and a search for non opioid relief. Cannabis was a godsend; I have since had back surgery (twice), and am pretty much...
