    in oregon rec is legal and we are allowed to grow 4 plants at any given time,, my wardrobe grow box typically houses 2 plants , and it yeilds me way more than i can smoke in a single year, my stash pile is already bigger than i need for 1 year of meds,, so this grow is almost just for fun

    This time around I am growing in a SIP again, but this sip is called a "growbox" last time i used the "earthbox",,, the growbox has a bigger water res at 4 gallons, and you can see it has a fill port on the front,, so allot less spilling, and i can see the res level as well IMG_1423.JPG

    KISS ,, nutes are dry tomato tone ,, organic bag soil ( i know i know) mixed in 2 cups of dry fert and then also did 3 trenches of nutes like the earthbox planting method IMG_1433.JPG IMG_1430.JPG IMG_1435.JPG IMG_1437.JPG IMG_1439.JPG

    ok, the clones are almost adapted to the SIP,, as soon as they get all perky,, they will get CHOPPED!!! at the red lines,, preparing to build the mainfold needed to start the mainlining process
    first pic is jack herer and where she is getting cut,,
    second pic is space kittles and where she is getting cut, the arrows show where the left and right manifolds will start,, maybe today,, maybe tommorow, chop1.png copy2.png

    I'm in a similar setup. Just slightly smaller. 50cm by 90cm by 115cm. I didn't have the dosh to get 3-4 cobs. Hence my selection of 2 vero 29c. Ran at 182w, 1.4amps.

    Yes and no. They dim to an extent. Then I get light flicker. Kinda like the strobing effect.

    intersting, but it is what it is,
    the meanwell driver i am using on the outside 4K citi cobs can dim down to 10 watts draw ,, lol, the 2 inside cobs are the cree 3070s and they are not dimmable, , only the citi 4k;s are on now, and they are dimmed down, not sure of the pull at the wall , its just a knob and i twist it ,, really i meant to make marks so i knew , but i was lazy,, hahaha

    first hack is in the books,, I took the jack herer at the next node up than i was originally planing, and i took the space kittles right where i planned, the reason for the jack change was the nodes were closer together a couple inches higher,, and that will be better for manifolding,, plus its equal in height to the space kitties mainfold start,
    on another note,, Jack herer is from an older mother, and has large spacing between nodes,,, and space kittles has perfect spacing, so kitties mother must have been grown from seed? or is a very young mother,, its fun to see nugbuckets description before my eyes
    so mainfold height for now is about 6 inches above soil,, we will see where it ends up with a little stretch IMG_1463.JPG IMG_1464.JPG IMG_1465.JPG IMG_1466.JPG IMG_1468.JPG
