First, I want to again THANK ALL who have contributed to my hydro learning curve. I'm certainly still wet behind the ears, but learning every day!
Last Monday, around lunch time I noticed that the water temp had risin, from the 70.0 it was set at, up to 71.1. It had never gone above 70.5 before, because that's where the cooler kicked on. Hmmmm. After some expermenting, I determined it was cooling and heating, just not nearly as effecient as before. So I plugged it into my watt meter. Yuck!!! The 180w chiller was only pulling 88W. I immediately contacted the seller and Ebay. The seller was responsive, but had all kinds of suggestions like sending out replacement Peltier chips or refunding 1/2 of the price, since it was still working 1/2 way. No way, I need a reliable, working machine. Long story short, he is in China and doing drop shipping, so returning the chiller wasn't an option and I received a full refund.
But that didn't solve my water cooling issue and I got tired of adding ice bottles very quickly, so yesterday afternoon I gave my trainer a serious trimming and transplanter her into a #5 pot of FF Ocean Forest. This morning, she looks quite happy for what she's been through.
I do have a quick question about some tan/browning root in my Haze x NL#2 grow, if someone could give me some guidance on that, it will be appreciated. I don't want to double post, so here is the thread where I need that help. THANKS!!!
Long ago, in the land of windmills and tulips, the owner of AG Seeds (Todd) and I met. We were both refugees from the "war on drugs" being waged here in the US. Back in those days, 1994, I had the good fortune of being able to do a pheno hunt from some 115+ NL5 x Haze seeds. Most of the seeds...
