  1. If I had a blank slate I would inuslate it, then paint the walls and ceiling white.  Then figure out where you are going to get fresh air from and where your going to exaust it too.  Intake should be low and placed at the opposite end of the room from Exhaust, which should be mounted high, near or in the ceiling.  The math for fan sizes is clear above.  Keep your ducts straight and short, if this is not possible, you will need more fan.  Fans CFM ratings are with no ducts or obstructions....You want one that will pull hard under a load, like a vortex, which IMHO are the best.  You will need a spot about canopy high or higher high to place your dehumidifer and A/C in the room. I like the A/C at the intake end of the room and the dehumifier centered on a side wall, but whatever works :D  Then hang enough oscilating fans to evenly blow and mx the air in the room.  If you are planning on cooling your lights with air, figure this into your ducting now, for example you will need another fan if you dont hook the exhaust duct onto the lights hood...also placing your bulbs parallel with the short walls (assuming the room is rectangular) seems to help.  Get the enviornment right and you will not have many of the troubles growers fight with.  


  2. Root balm products of all kinds have been around for 1000's of years.   There is money in pills, poison, insurance and doctors visits but I am against all that.  Few seek natural remedies these days, and I swear by this one.   I do not apply this nearly as often anymore and it seems to have healed my hands more than provided relief.   At the end of most days I could not a joint...I have not had that problem since. Thanks brother Karr.

     

     

    On a side note my mom, a three firiends now have all loved this for a variety of ailments....I have given more away than I have used :D


  3. Great show!  I stopped in the other day and realized, no camera...again! Friggin stoners!  Still great to see. Your lights might be engineered for cannabis, but they certainly grow everything well and Im certain the enviornment is less than ideal  at the store, but the plants seem to thrive. Very cool. Your employees were anxious to show off the latest wares and supplies, plants....quite friendly and knowledgable as always. They asked if I wanted you guys, I told them "naw, i dont even have my camera?!" lol.  One day soon. So much cool in there


  4. So many things could be causing them to do this.

     

    Lights to low, to much heat in the room, fans to close. mg deficient. Iron deficient.

     

    Do you ever add Epson salt? say 1 or two pinches per gallon?

     

    They look fine. If they get worse then flush and check these things I and the others have mentioned.

    I agree.  Looks enviornmental too me.


  5. I would never add chemical nutes to a organic grow. Pick one way or another and run with it.  The Amish and like around here will rent fields and pour chemicals to it, but on their own land they use organics. Think about that.   Over time chems will destroy a ecosystem whether it is outside or in.   Your fighting yourself at that point IMHO and you will never get as good results as if you went either way.  Fox Farm IMHO and IMHE is overpriced crap.  I know people use it with success, but you would have to be a fox farm guru to outgrow me with pure organics and teas. Really, honestly...its whatever you prefer and works for you.  "Better" taste or flavor is purely subjective and I know a few DWC gurus I would hate to ply my wares against.  At the same time I am happy with a twice a week trip into the room and my nutes costing less than anyones nearly...I think its "better" organic, and I know Ill never hit the GPW of great buds that the Hydro gurus do, but i bet you can get within the 10% barrier with little fuss and less money and IMHE "better buds". 


  6.             Make sure you have a 200 amp cable into your house and this guy isnt some schmo (thats right schmo..lol) that is gonna burn your place down. Its a easy enough affair, should be able to be done about anyway you want including a whole nother box for your room if you wished.  Do yourself a favor and run a few outlets around the room unless its like 3x3 or something.


  7. Hands down, dominator.   Lush's customer service is unmatched in the LED world, great folks that stand behind a great product.  I have been into their retail store on several occassions.  These lights may be tuned for meds, but they grow nearly anything well as witnessed continually in the store.  You want the best product you can afford, but even better is one you KNOW folks will stand behind and not leave you out to dry.  Getting both makes this a easy choice to me.


  8. Color me crazy, but I like a appropriately sized one this style .http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/131363703279?lpid=82&chn=ps They take much abuse, and rebuild kits are about $2.  I like using two rebuild kits (rubber vacuum diaphrams) and installing them both on one pump. Makes them quiter and I have never noticed lesser airflow.  Do yourself a favor and buy a $40 hydrofarm single unit and run that for a cycle or two.......


  9. organic grows in soil generally require a bit larger pot IME than than their chemical counterparts.  Depends on how big of plants your growing... 7 -10 gallon is a good option, squat pots indoors whether fabric or plastic...Id make my own simple TLO recipe with promix or soil and make teas personally, but a two car garage like that? It might be time to start think DWC buckets.


  10.  I almost guarantee they have  fans around the base of em blowing and oscilating fans keeping things moving.  Probably have their intake and exaust at opposite corners..... I like a packed flower area myself, but it takes effort.  I think our climate is more suited it
