    so my buddy let me use his 1000w metal halide since he stopped growing an i had been growing with cfls. the deal was as long as i grew him a plant i could use it as long as i wanted. anyway first grow went good grew 4 og kush 4 purp kush gave him his plant he seemed happy, so about a week after that crop out i told him i had just put some Ak47 into bud an cut some clones into my old cfl grow box to veg. About 2 days later he says either i buy the light for $250 or hes taking it back. I was like tha fuck whatever then take your light im not paying $250 for a 10 year old mh when i can get a 600w HPS/MH conversion kit with both bulbs, reflector, yoyo hangers for $140. i plan on purchasing 2 of the 600w which will be a lil over $300 but i get more coverage an since there conversion i could run my MH bulb n use one for veg if i wanted. plus i heard 600watters are the most efficent of the HIDS. Also thanks to him i had to kill my clones an pretty much run a SOG for flowering in my old cfl box it should work fine until i get my new 600watters. But man am i pissed at him what kind of fuck does that to someone whos suppose to be there friend. ps. sorry for shitty typing broke my hand a few days ago. keep smokin:joint:
    also not sure if this is the right section or not for this, if not i apologize in advance

    Ppl are shitty, Id be happy if i were getting getting a plant out of the deal every harvest, Im sure the weed he recieved, would of been worth more than that $250 he's requesting. Just keep minimal contact if your really pissed. If you want to continue chillin then, if the shoes on the other foot at some point and he needs something, pull the same card,

    What's the problem? He's a chickenshit and you're worried about him at all? At the end of your life you won't even have a clue as to where this clown is. Move on. BTW - your lights you plan on buyng suck. Don't even know the name or brand but at that price they suck. Read on RIU about low bay/high bay shop light fixtures and how to use them. I have 2 and use both (400 watt MH) to veg with. $20 apiece used with the bulbs. Free to convert to remote ballast operation.

    In fact here you go. Bet in your area on craigslist there are fixtures like these. I saw some in a CO craigs brand new for $90 with the bulb.

    And this belongs in the Toke & Talk section. This is about fucked up plants, not fucked up people.

    Give him his light back. You should have hps for flowering.

    always best to buy your own shit. and never make any agreements with others cause it will basically always end out badly. people are greedy, surprised?.

    imo, hes been paid for his shitty old light. how many zips did he get from that one plant? how much is a zip in your area?
    sounds like hes getting over on you, but that seem to always be the case when your doing illegal activity. best just to give it back and keep your distance.

    Yep, hes a bad friend and just be happy hes made that clear. Avoid drama with him, just avoid contact. Never good to have somebody youre in a bad relationship with who knows that you are growing.

    THIS.

    Especially someone who appears to be an asshole. You struck the deal so no reason to get pissed. People are greedy and money/weed can do weird things to relationships.

    lol, $250 for mh. Shit I paid $140 for a used ''new' setup from C.L, hydrofarm air cooled hood, and one 600w xtrasun ballast. the guy did one grow and told me he couldn't grow indoors. I still use it now.

    I got a 1000w from Craigslist for a $100 because I wanted the hood, and have the 1000w ballast for back up. Good luck, and fuck the middle man!!!!!

    another reason why i wont borrow stuff.

    and just think if it breaks when you have it.


    always best to get your own stuff. i think the worst thing is, you have someone that knows you grow.

    also off the record. Don't loan your stuff out! I did that, and when I got it back. My friend didn't even tell my one side with my t5ho ballast went out on him! So I had to buy new parts$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ then he asked to use it again, and I told him, he needs to buy his own.

    Letting peeps know you grow is taboo in the first place.

    The worst ship to ever set sail, is a partnership.

    Give him his stuff back and tell him you are outa the game and moving on.

    Peace and Safe Grows

    So, your friend let you borrow something, you used it for a while and now he wants it returned and you are pissed off?

    The way I understand the OP's wording.. the one who let him borrow said light setup said that as long as OP grew him a plant w/every cycle.. he could borrow it as long as he wanted - which the one who let him borrow said light said he wants it back in the middle of a cycle, or OP has to pay way too much for said used setup - in a nutshell.

    Gotta love ebay. Always brand new with warranty Lumatek setups dirt cheap. I grabbed 8 600 watt digital dimmables and 4 1000 watt dimmables for little under $1200 delivered over night. Kept what I need sold the rest for double the price still half off the hydro stores price so got all my lights for free in the end plus doubled my original money.

    Your "friend" sounds like a douchebag. Time to cut ties.

    What a dick. He was wanting a plant each grow! Wow a 1/4 would have paid of that light. Get your own lighting and move on. And about not telling people you grow, that is a good idea but by being on RIU you have told the world already. Dont let everyone you meet know you grow. Only people that know I grow are my wife, select family members and a few of my very good and very trusted life long friends.

    Not really, I'm not growing a thing at all.. I'm just a horticulturist that has a vested interest in unique phenotypes. :)

    Sounds like your plant you gave him might have turned out better than his shit and he's just jealous and wants to try his hand at growing again.
