    Borrowed the one from my buddy that hangs on the ceiling and you throw the little sulphor pellets in there and plug her in. I am curious about a few things.

    a.) does ventilation have to be off?

    b.) where do I hang it? right above the plants or in a corner?

    c.) how long does ventilation have to be off for... five hours or so like a regular bomb?

    d.) how much of the pellets are you supposed to use? he said it's enough for one burn but i want to be sure.

    e.) osilating fans on during the sulphor bomb?

    I'll just answer in your quote, since you listed the questions so nicely. :blsmoke:


    Don't use it for any longer time than that. Don't use it again for at least a week. Treat it like any other poison, don't breathe it, wash up after use, etc. Also, if there's any liquid sulfur left when I unplug it, I just let it harden in the cup, and use it again the next time.

    HTH :mrgreen:

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the purpose of a sulfur bomb?

    to eliminate powdery mildew.

    Noticed one leaf with mildew on it today. Does the sulphor "kill" the mildew or just makes it so it can't spread and essentially dries out?

    Found a few more with mildew on it, I think this is going to need to be bombed again Sunday which will be a week from the first one. I am about four weeks from finishing, it's okay to bomb this late correct? I assume this will be the last one, getting a little close here.

    Wow I know I am very late reading this thread, but I am about the same way, I am ready to burn tonight for the first time. I was curious about if I should cover my bulb, or my heater. Obviously pull everything else out of the grow space. I read it's better to burn during lights out, does that mean right after the lights go out? Or right before they go on. I am at 4 weeks into flower. Scary stuff.
