our either if them cost friendly? I’m trying to be as economical as possible other than the lights
If you plan on continuing to grow I would invest the fifty bucks for either one. EBay or Amazon I use the apear ph60
then I guess I best invest the $ for one
thanks for the advice im gonna need all the help I can get
If you need to tag a member along the way use the @ symbol in front of their user name @fsu21beats lots of members willing to help. Good luck moving forward
thanks appreciate that, I’m so new here idk who to even @ lol. my entire process has seemed overwhelming
You can tag pretty much anyone you can remember with a question. If they don’t have an answer this community is good about tagging someone until someone knows. Tag me any time! @fsu21beats
Using distilled water the entire time won’t be very cost effective and does get cumbersome. Filtered water from the fridge properly pH would be a fair way to go. But like @kellydans said, meters are a must with most styles of growing.
What light do you have exactly?
I have one 1600w & one 1000w
full spectrum led lights w/ dimable knobs they have veg & bloom switch, they’re not just the cheap blue/red/burple ones I just don’t remember the 2 different brands though
Take pictures even you can. Those numbers won’t be accurate. I don’t think anyone makes a true 1600w LED.
Many light companies (especially Amazon and Chinese) report false numbers. What you need to go by is the actually power draw from the wall.
I will have to take sum pics I think the one say 1250 not 1600 I’m just an idiot. I have another smaller watage full spectrum & then another crappy one that’s just blue/red/burple. so I’m hoping that’ll be good for the 2 converted 5’ tall x 3.5’ wide hutches I have to grown in. I’ve lined them w/ mylar hoping that will help
It’s all good. Just trying to help get all the expectations and dreams balanced haha
thanks I appreciate it very much. trying 2 keep my expectations very low this 1st try. I had 9 & I’ve killed 3 by giving nutrients to early. I can tell it’s gonna be a rough go of it this time around. but its definitely something I’m passionate about & what to get decent at it
If you have the passion, we have the guidance. We’ll walk you through it.
I appreciate it any & all help is good, everyone has been super cool @ answering my questions. I will be on here alot probably asking a lot of stupid questions lol
Only stupid question is the one not asked.
I did it to them. The funny part is once you read and learn the things… you’ll be asking the questions anyway for confirmation. And it’s all good
whats the difference with a grow tent being hydroponic? could I not use soil in one labeled that?
No the tents are all the same ish. Varying qualities of the same thing. They block light and support your environment
I have a couple pics I needed to upload I have 2 more seedlings looking like they might make it or if their even really worth trying to save & now I have sum sort of gnat f’in w/ them
They’re worth it! Get sticky traps and mosquito bits.
Upload pictures and we’ll get a discussion going on what’s up
