Ahh the good ole "oo pretty" test. Gotta love em.
Clones sure have gotten pricey at the shops just like they've gotten rare on craigslist.
I had to pay the price just because I don't feel like dicking around for the time it takes to start seed.
Not even sure of the one strain I was able to get in rockwool, conspiracy kush. One way to find out I guess.
how much per? i checked a few places in denver (la contes, clone store) and they were outrageos for a rec clone. like 40 to 70 if i remember correct.
need to figure out how to get from seed to about 6 inch tall in a week or so. i could retire in the islands.
Not nearly that pricey, I would have walked out empty handed had they been any more expensive.
I got a lucky charms for $20 and a golden goat for $30 at Kind love, they were in coco or I planned to buy more, drove all the way down there and couldn't see leaving with nothing. Came back up north, stopped at lacontes just because they run mob boss, they were out of mob boss and had a couple strains I wasn't interested in, they were 25 bux a pop for some shitty little clones (although that doesn't really mean anything). So I walked out of there and went to this place in lafayette, they had two strains in rockwool, conspiracy kush and chem 91, I wanted two of each but they only had one chem 91 and I'm trying to keep things even so I just picked up 4 of the conspiracy kush at $20 apiece but buy 3 and the 4th one is a penny, so roughly 130 bux for 6 clones total.
And then of course right after I get home and a dude from craigs texts me he has some in rockwool for 10 a pop.
that's not bad at all.
when i had my red card, there was a place in the springs that was my clone source. they had some good strains and all was good for awhile and then got 2 that had mites and decided to go the fem seed route.
Denver clone store was my first choice of shops to visit just because they have 12 dollar out the door clones but the reviews that mentioned bugs made me shy away.
I mean these aren't the most expensive clones I've seen , a few years back mob boss clones were bringing a bill apiece, not from me of course, I'll do without before I pay that, awhile later the price dropped to like 25 apiece but was still over double what the average clone would bring.
what ever happended with 303 running some fem stuff? i was looking forward to trying some of those beans.
the other CO beans i really want to try but they are only regs is la plata labs. from somewhere near pagosa i believe. you ever heard of them? the pics on the website are bueno.
I believe their dreams got snuffed out by some bad sts , not sure they'll be coming back.
I have heard of la plata labs but never really looked at their stuff.
And now that I look you're right, looks nice. I bet they're proud.
So. I may e got a little drunk and talked a manufacturer in Guangzhou into sending me a sample pack of 4 cheapo 315 and 2 de 630. So if ya want one of the de and I'm not using it I'll ship it to ya at cost
I'm actually liquidating a few of the cmh I do have, I have too much lighting.
Any experience with 315 lamps outside of the Phillips? I'm kinda liking the thought of ushio. Industry has made me a fan. And honestly if I'm going to run all 4 I'm thinking maybe some maxpar or sunpulse kinda chinese brand may cut the cake for a year or two
I have a ushio and solis lamp somewhere, they don't have much usage but are fairly old. I think from now on I'll be buying nothing but hortilux replacement 315 lamps. They don't seem to be all that for flower but I won't be using any 315 in flower .
You running de's I'm guessing? That is until you get all those qbs.
I have a little of everything running right now, very little, I'm only running like 1500 watts right now. Haven't even hung the last two lights I bought.
I have a lighting shortage lol. Had to resort to busting out the 600w SE HPS.
Currently having a shitty time with flood and drain. Started seeds like 7 weeks ago and they just dont look healthy. Was feeding 0.8EC and then upped to 1.2EC. I guess I need to up to 1.4EC cause they still dont look like bubble buckets. Barely any branching. 7 weeks bubble buckets they would be huge by now and at a lower feed.
Oh and algae. Fucking algae. Thinking more and more about a 5 gal bucket rdwc which acts as a connected bubble bucket most of the time until I need to change the res or pH.
Do you like the 550? Is it the shit? Does it really equal a 1000 watt?
I hear you , I just dropped like a buck fidy on some clones that I may proceed to kill , not on purpose of course.
Just made a run to the hydro store for some great white hoping that will clear things up, dunno wtf, I've done nothing wrong. Started a new nutrient , other than that it's the same ol drill.
