I didnt give up on them betty. I plan on running one every moment i can. Then im leaving the Northern HOG outside fulltime. (She is getting her a** kickd but growing ) but the photos are the bread and butter. I havent germ’d a photo seed i paid for.
N i only got to really grow 1 out of the 4-5 i tried to germ. Think i killd WW somehow. Lemon haze is still in her soil after 3 weeks. Think Different didnt open in her peat pod (also me too damp). And thr aforementiond HOG is doing fine with me not touching her (except rain, always needs a touch after rain)

$194.70~ no calculator but damn fine work Now to piece the rest of the funds together. Strips down. $111~ to go. Also sad news… Ms Red was shredded 3 days ago by a mystery animal… i cleaned her remains up, tied her top to the pot. And she has been slowly recovering. Ms Beige was shredded last night by i assume same said animal. She had been topd… then topd at both new tops. Cropped on all new tops. Then traind to allow her 4 sub-tops to catch up. Then transplantd to a bigger pot and set outside to begin flowering in shorter light. Sadly also was skewerd. Will let her sit and try to grow (and bring her inside to continue vegging with the others…) but she maybe a gonner.
Ms Blue- Mr Blue
Ms Red - shredded 8/30
Ms Beige - shredded 8/2
Berry Bomb - 2 months 17 days (1 mth veg)
Ms Green - mainlined and growing slowly…
No problem. The strips are 24 mm, so even the 20mm is technically small. But it’s closest without having a exposed tape. If you have wider tape than strip it will hold a ton of dust and get nasty. Been using the 20mm with them almost 2 years now and works plenty good.
I orderd 20 - 280s… got 20 - 560s… good thing I procrastinated about the drivers and other parts. @dbrn32 i have a conundrum on my hands now. Should i still 10 strip the 560s? Just add longer aluminum n bigger drivers? Or do we do something more… creative?
