    Why do people get in front of me on the freeway before using their wiper fluid?

    I can give you some ideas on how to modify it if you can't find a better place to hang them. A primary design requirement of my sets were that they would not annoy their owners, so I know all of the tricks.

    Everybody here qualifies for the family discount. =) Toss me a message and I'll give anybody who's interested the link to my site. birthmas people always get the shaft!

    IMO, organics have no place in hydroponics. The only tea you should be using in hydro, if at all, is a beneficial bacteria tea.

    You are both saints. =) And yeah pure is correct, the breeder is Ace waaaay over there in Spain. .. wait a minute. .. You all aren't trying to keep me outta this contest, are you? =P I wanna get my MacGyver on!

    Dry Nutrient Recipe

    Awesome! I noticed a typo in my 3 gallon bloom mix example at the bottom. I fixed it here, but can you edit the tutorial so it reads 135ml for both parts A and B? (part B says 125ml) Thanks!

    Oh man, that stuff is sooo good. I also really enjoy golden tiger from the same breeder. I recently popped my ultra-reserve-unknown-selfseeded beans that I hoped I'd never have to use. LOL With any luck, I'll 12/12 them from seed and they won't all be hermies. For whatever reason, I've never been able to stay on top of keeping good genetics around. I plan to change that this time.

    Nothing specific, nah. I'm always on the lookout for a new favorite! .. and speaking of favorites, among those poker winnings was one of your malawi crosses. I chased that malawi and it is by far my favorite pure sativa now. I only wish it didn't take 18 weeks to finish. I caught the rare purple pheno that finishes in 15, but wasn't able to keep it going. In fact, I even botched my pollen collection, so I never even got to breed my own stock. I'm not sure about another tournament. I mean, it was a blast, but.. I've never done so well in one before in my life! I'm sort of afraid to tarnish that record. haha! If you remember (I sure do), I only won 1 weekly game outside that tournament. ahhh, who am I kidding? I'd prolly sign up. =P

    DIY Dry Nutrients

    What you'll need: 5-11-26 hydroponic dry nutrients. I use hydro-gardens.com, but there are plenty of options out there for you. MKP (amazon.com) https://amzn.to/2JlaupX Epsom Salt (walmart) https://amzn.to/2Deftsm Calcium Nitrate -- amazon or pretty much anywhere that sells ferts. https://amzn.to/2Q3KdPA RO water https://amzn.to/2Db9xAj The basics: Mix Ratios Cal Nit “5-11-26” Epsom MKP Vegetation 2 2 1 0 Bloom 2 2.5 1 0.5 Late Bloom 1.6 2.5 0.75 0.75 The Details: Part A (Calcium Nitrate) ---------------------------- 120g per 2L of water OR 226g per 1G of water Part B (Veg growth) ----------------------- 2L of water - 120g 5-11-26 - 60g Epsom Salt OR 1G of water - 226g 5-11-26 - 113g Epsom Salt Part B (Bloom) ----------------- 2L of water - 150g 5-11-26 - 60g Epsom Salt - 30g MKP OR 1G of water - 282.5g 5-11-26 - 113g Epsom Salt - 56.5g MKP Part B (Late Bloom -- last 2 weeks) ----------------------------------------- 2L of water - 187.5g 5-11-26 - 56.25g Epsom Salt - 56.25g MKP OR 1G of water - 353g 5-11-26 - 106g Epsom Salt - 106g MKP --------------------------------------- I like to use water dispenser jugs to hold the concentrates because they have a handle for easy shaking and a spigot, although 2L soda bottles/1G milk jugs are super easy to handle as well. I use a (roughly) 1 gallon container for Veg and Late Bloom, and roughly 3 gallon containers for part A and bloom. Part A and Part B (Bloom) will be your most used by far. Using this recipe, you'll always mix a 1:1 ratio of parts A and B. All you need to vary is which part B concentrate you need to use at that time. Piece of cake! Simply adjust the pH after you are done mixing. Examples taken from my grow logs: (your results my vary!) 1 Gallon of Veg Mix -- 45ml part A, 45ml part B (Veg). EC = 1.6 uncorrected pH = 6.2 3 Gallons of Bloom Mix -- 135ml part A, 135ml part B (Bloom). EC = 2.0 uncorrected pH = 5.8 required pH up = 2.5ml Corrected pH = 6 3 Gallon of Late Bloom Mix -- 100ml part A, 100ml part B(Late Bloom). EC = 1.8 uncorrected pH = 5.7 required pH up - 2.5ml Corrected pH = 6 The only warning I can think of is to make sure that your dry nutes stay dry! Keep them sealed in bags/pails, they WILL attract moisture!

    Good timing! I finished growing out all of the seeds I won in that poker tourney and my seed vault is currently empty. =( I am so in on this.

    Automate your humidifier for grows/drying

    I'm still around =) Don't be afraid of arduino, it's actually pretty easy. I'll update my posts with some wiring diagrams and some pics eventually. I know it feels intimidating, but they are just.. wonderful.

    Arduino 2 lamp and fan controller

    This one is sort of a PITA because I never did add in a switch to flip between photoperiods easily. I have to edit the code and re-upload it. however, since I use an arduino micro and plug it into a breadboard, it's pretty easy to remove and bring it over to the PC. How it works: You set what time you want your lights to turn on and off and when it's time to turn them on, it will start the first lamp, then the lamp cooling fan in 5 seconds, then 10 seconds after the first lamp fires, the 2nd lamp starts. The exhaust fan/canopy fan starts after 30 seconds of lights on. Everything is staggered so it doesn't slam your breaker and trip it. When it's time to turn off, both lamps go off along with the room exhaust/canopy fans while the lamp cooling fan continues for another 10 mins to cool the bulbs. If the controller is turned on during a time when your lamps would normally be on, it goes into a protection mode and turns the lamp cooling fan on for 10 mins before starting the lamps. This is to avoid a hot bulb restart in the case of a brown-out that resets the controller. The only soldering needed is for the AC adapter, so this one is a bit easier to put together than the humidifier controller. I use breadboard wires to connect everything. Parts: Arduino micro -- Like this: https://www.gearbest.com/sensors/pp_729019.html?wid=1433363 NOTE: whichever arduino you use, make sure it has a 3.3v ouput pin for the RTC RTC -- arduino real time clock. 2 double relays -- 4 relays in total 5v regulated AC adapter 3 single plug outlets, 1 double outlet, electrical boxes, some wiring for it all. The double outlet is for your carbon filtered room exhaust and canopy fan (if you use one). Build notes: it all goes together quite easily. I installed the AC adapter inside the electrical box behind the outlets. I used 2 boxes and a second 5v adapter so I could have the lamps on a 220V line, but you could use just 1 box if you wanted. Just be sure to label those 220V sockets if you don't change the plug type!!! The arduino and relays are attached to the outside of the box so everything stays together. Power them directly with the AC adapter, not the arduino. I think it might have just enough power to do it, but it would be right at the limits with 4 of them. Wiring diagrams are all online for each component. You'll also have to program the RTC with the correct time. That code is quite common and will come with the library files you download. I've used this code for several years now, so it's well tested and bulletproof. Enjoy!

    Automate your humidifier for grows/drying

    There is an (unofficial?) arduino IDE for android, but I've never used it. It would also require a special cable/adapter to interface with a phone. They are super handy controllers if you can handle hacking together some code. There is an incredibly large community so chances are somebody has code for whatever you want already, although I write all of mine. I use 2 in the grow room and have another that controls a kiln for making telescope mirror blanks.

    Automate your humidifier for grows/drying

    I also use a lamp controller. =) I tried controlling the exhaust fan based on temp/humidity, but it mostly just stays on so I don't bother with that one anymore. I just toggle needed fans along with the lamps. That one isn't the most user-friendly because I need to upload the code on it every time I change the photoperiod. I need to add in a switch so I can just set 18 or 12 hours.. Good to be back!
