I think what you and your mates did for one of your friends was great. I hope he not only enjoys some cheap smoke to help his condition but I hope he takes to heart the value of the lessons you are sharing with him. I started my current grow under super tight budget and still have only the cash it raises to pay for upgrades and the electric bill. I put in two low cost led's some buckets and a big air pump and a lot of garage sale type items. I failed the school of DWC in about 3 weeks but saved my plants by moving them into soil. For me I would always suggest soil for a must harvest grow. Even in a badly vented over heated grow as I had I still got a couple of oz. of flowers to smoke. Best wishes for you.Right, just had a square up with the plants to keep them on point. All good apart from the Super Lemon Haze. It had root rot when It was picked up, and not much of a root ball. lol
But if it produces a couple of ounces, then that's power to the good.
Good job they are small buckets. lol The Lemon Haze looks better root wise this week, so you never know, it may be a winner in 7 weeks.
And now we start week 2, C'mon babies, grow.
