    Spray or produt to kill gnats but leave my good bugs/worms/microbes unharmed? Or is it too late?

    @mancorn Yeah I might have been a little lazy about breaking up the chunks, I thought that if I just soaked in my rez for long enough it wouldnt be an issue.. I now have a dunk soaking in each dehuey drain bucket and am adding fresh pucks to each change. @Burned Haze Cool I will definitely...

    Spray or produt to kill gnats but leave my good bugs/worms/microbes unharmed? Or is it too late?

    45 views and no one has an opinion on this? I think I will try and capture some of my beneficials, then root drench and neem the shit outta everything. Repeat for a week or more... then introduce my bug cultures back

    Spray or produt to kill gnats but leave my good bugs/worms/microbes unharmed? Or is it too late?

    Hey Farmers! My question: Is there any product that would be safe to apply that will decimate the fungus gnats, but leave my good bugs (and worms) ok? Or am I better off biting the bullet and spraying, drenching, fogging the gnats to death right now, and just getting more good bugs to keep the...

    Veganic Coots Variation - Off To A Good Start?

    I apologize in advance if people still get sassy about bumping old threads, but i thought a follow up was in order. My grow didnt go quite as planned.. Friggid ass nights, early snow, an apparent endless supply of moisture from the greenhouse floor which an industrial dehumidifier couldnt...

    Does The Efficiency Of 600w Justify Start Cost Vs 1000w? An Analysis, Input Wanted

    Yep, I went with a few 315s to mix in between the 1000w SE that I already had lying around. I plan on leaving them open hood, no glass to stop the UV light that everyone says can really help resin production. It seems most people really like where the HPS and CMH light overlap, so I am excited...

    Does The Efficiency Of 600w Justify Start Cost Vs 1000w? An Analysis, Input Wanted

    Yeah I think fluence has a lot going for them in that they are seem pretty transparent and really dedicated to pushing the envelope in their design and research. The improvements they constantly make to product is really cool, it shows they are progressing. That said, they definitely are...

    Does The Efficiency Of 600w Justify Start Cost Vs 1000w? An Analysis, Input Wanted

    I really like what fluence is trying to do, I think they are a great company from what I have read and heard them say on the KIS podcasts, However, I said in the beginning of this that while lumens are not the best way to measure light output, it really can still be useful when comparing two HPS...

    For anyone looking for good LEC grow journals I think @DemonTrich has some really good grows. https://www.thcfarmer.com/community/threads/demontrichs-dungeon-of-trichs.94303/ They are well structured and he lists them all there. Here is a really good video comparing 3x 315s to a 1000w hps in a...

    Does The Efficiency Of 600w Justify Start Cost Vs 1000w? An Analysis, Input Wanted

    As much as I really like where the LED industry is headed, and yes I am sure that a spyder or other high end LED fixture would probably save me money in the long run, I just do not have the funds to invest in LEDs right now. I was given a couple SE 1000W HPS ballasts and hoods, so I will be...

    Does The Efficiency Of 600w Justify Start Cost Vs 1000w? An Analysis, Input Wanted

    Hey thanks for the replies, It looks like I have about 50-70 amps to play with, probably keeping it on the 50 amp side when I can. I have a plant count limit of 72 (What up to my fellow MI farmers!) in about 100 sq. ft. of use able flower space, so I probably wont be growing TREES, but I do...

    Does The Efficiency Of 600w Justify Start Cost Vs 1000w? An Analysis, Input Wanted

    I was dividing 300 dollars by 1.56 cents or 0.0156 dollars, all good man! Hey I suppose I did not think about the overlap of lights.. that looks like it adds up. I had read where people seem to think 1000w lights get better penetration, so that was a concern since I am medical and with the...

    Does The Efficiency Of 600w Justify Start Cost Vs 1000w? An Analysis, Input Wanted

    So it looks like going with 600 watts is over $300 more expensive for this set up. I get about 12 percent more lumens per watt with 600 hps.. meaning for every 13 cents I spend on electricity I am getting extra lumens, sort of a "virtual savings" here. If my electricity is around 13 cents a...

    Thanks Dbear for the input, yeah I figured I would need to shop around a bit more, and from the reviews on amazon I would be steering clear of them since some re-sellers seem to be shipping used bulbs. But that was just for price comparison... That was something else I wanted to get some info...

    Also I looked at DE HPS, It looks like 3 1000w DE HPS would be about $393 https://www.htgsupply.com/products/digital-greenhouse-hhp-1000w-de-grow-light at 155,000 lumens per watt which are actually supposed to be more located in the PAR range of light thats 155 lumens per watt 394 lumens per...

    Woops, I changed my mind on the hoods, I found these which are able to be ducted, which changes things a bit... But unfortunately when I edit and add another link now it says I am spamming... so... maybe ill fix later. The new hoods are actually 6 dollars cheaper.. It turned out that the...

    Hey everybody, hope your having a good day :smoking: So I am moving back to indoors after a few years hiatus, before I was working with a long time indoor grower, now I am taking this on my self. New place, new set up. I have learned a lot about gardening lately and am definitely going to...

    Heating The Greenhouse? 50 Degrees F Too Low?

    Right on, my purples are looking really pretty but those would probably do that at any temp below 70. Other plants are acheiving a nice purple hue on the leaves though, a gelato cross I have is looking gorgeous in its fade to purple right now. It is one of the few ones I was trying synthetic...

    Heating The Greenhouse? 50 Degrees F Too Low?

    Toker, thats some gorgeous nug, are you saying you turned that plant that dark through nutrient deprevation/overload? I thought that purpling was almost entirely accomplished through temp drops, whats your method?

    Heating The Greenhouse? 50 Degrees F Too Low?

    Very pretty. Yeah I am definitely not TRYING to get colors on this bud, I really dont mind nice light green nugs, I just want lots of them. So if I have a couple dozen small (4 foot, carefully trained so each probably 6ish equally main stems a piece) and they still have the last 2-3 weeks do...

    Heating The Greenhouse? 50 Degrees F Too Low?

    Yeah they dont seem to mind the cold, no burnt hairs or leaf tips yet, but some of these have 2 or 3 weeks left and they just are not as fat as I am used to seeing buds get by now. Was not sure if it is the cold, or the old ass greenhouse poly material not letting in enough light. Definitely...
