    Dinosaur it maybe but an mh bulb would be all I'd have to get. Have a cooltube and ballast surplus to requirements here. Just a cmh bulb over here is 130 quid about 170 usd. That's not including lamp and reflector

    The CMH lamps are much more efficient, last 4 times as long and give superior spectrum output and more intensity per watt. There's a reason they're a bit more costly up front; they're worth it.

    It's a wordplay on 'Thai Stick', the buds that used to come from the Emerald Triangle in SE Asia.

    I tell everyone I got it after I outgrew 'roach', lol

    It's an awful smoke Thai stick. Lol. I just went and checked my girls. They're fine. With fan off at night temps were 19c but humidity created upto 50% so I'll try again tonight with a couple of damp traps in

    50% RH is nothing to be concerned about.

    I'm not concerned about the 50% it was a rain free night last night here so that may have more fluctuation that I'd wanna nip in the bud. Before it nips in my bud lol

    So got home safe from my trip. Went and checked on the girls. Definitely going to have to get gnat control stuff. Something is continuing to eat leaves. Probably gonna get some DE too.

    To my untrained eye:
    One plant looks amazing, one doesn't.

    So after a town run to get groceries and supplies, I have in my possession some mosquito bits (says on the package works for fungus gnats too)

    What is the best way to utilize the Mosquito bits?

    I also realized... I have a container problem. I can't go to a store without buying random sizes and shapes of containers haha.

    Theres loads of people saying they won't use pesticides in their grow jelly dude. Check the manufacturers website and make sure that its safe to spray on or even near before you go full on. I'd hate to see you lose your clones bro

    The stuff i got is biological, Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies Israelensis. It is safe for use around gardens and pets, It should be fine, reading around, there are several methods of application, some say to sprinkle on top of the soil and water as normal, others say grind it up and soak in water for 24hrs then water as normal.

    So I was in the shed again... Not much to report on in this thread, I will start a seperate thread for what I'm working on right now.

    I lowered the lights this morning to 20" above the plants. I found a little catepillar who's been munching on one of my plants and squished him good. The plant that's doing well is, wait for it.... doing well. haha. She's putting on tons of new leaves and bushing up. I'm not sure my second plant is gonna make it, time will tell. it's still very green but it's taken a thrashing. Good news is I can always just take a clone or two from the plant that is doing good.

    I didn't put any of the mosquito bits in yet, I haven't seen any new gnats yet, I've killed two or three of them but it's not like they are swarming.

    Sorry, It's viewable now. I had privacy on my blog, I guess it's enabled by default.

    Since this part is more shed related, small update :) Watered the plants (from the bottom, let water soak into the bags) and they look good. The bug eaten one may recover after all, it's getting darker green and the war torn leaves are getting bigger. I'm not seeing it put on any new growth yet, Once I see that i'll relax.

    Mounted to cabinets for more storage space. :)

    Also, Got a computer set up so I can keep track of what I do with some grow software (Herb.IQ)

    That's about it today. :)
