Hahahaha I love that frankster plants in the kitchen next to the stove cook your tea check on the babies at the same timeMy SF SD1000 burned out, so I had to hobble something together to make do until I find a remedy. The smaller one wasn't cutting it well, so put this together, and put my portable power supply on it, and applied some heat sinks to a strip.
Need to keep an eye on them, so I don't overdo it, I think. Might configure some of these as side runner lights, for increasing yields on the bottoms of plants.
When you live in a tiny space, you do what you have too. I'm American, so it's usually strong coffee in the morning, but yes, it's the first thing I do is check plant growth when I wake up.Hahahaha I love that frankster plants in the kitchen next to the stove cook your tea check on the babies at the same time
Strong work Mr. Stirr.Alright I've given these beans a week and here's where it stands.... after a lengthy soak in just filtered water and then moved into moist paper towels misted with filtered water I have 8 sprouted and the 9th was taken out of the paper towel and put in dirt last night... it had a nice tap root but was a bit dry since I had to work a 16hr shift.... if #9 doesn't sprout it's due to operator error, not the seed. #10 was a dud. I'm comfortable calling it a 90% germination rate.
Strong work BudGoodman!
I'll take 9 out of 10 any day!

SF was helpful and just messaged me, there sending out a new unit, but yes, I fart around with electronics. Probably actually destroyed the first SF unit on mistake by dialing things down with a rheostat. It's couldn't hold back the voltage, and was simply creating more resistance in the power supply. Thought all their units dialed down when I first got them, but that's the basic difference between the SF1000D for $79 and the SF1000 for $135 (all the other units have high end dials also) But the $79 unit can't be effectively dialed back, at least not how I did it. lolMad science electrical skillls hum, Thanks for the views, grow on brother.
