    From Mini-Fridge to a Laundry Closet

    Stealth growing has always been an interest of mine, mainly due to my state being non-legal till just up to last summer. Had a few halfassed grows in closets before legalization and was always toying with the idea of how to have a grow in plainsight and virtually undetectable. Fast forward to...

I would love to hear some opinions on a DIY lighting rig to serve this purpose. I have already built myself a 4x4 bridgelux EB2 DIY rig...

And macgyver'd the shit out of...

    A DIY LED light using Samsung LH351H-C SMD (3535)

    I don’t think I have really seen any lights for sale with these SMD’s in them. They are much bigger than the 301b’s and are rated for a few watts vs .5 watts. These are specifically geared towards horticulture and have a lense, I assume you could mount them to star boards and make your own...

    What’s up all, so the original plan was to toss these outside but with 2/4 females and winning the @Spiderfarmerled 4/20 giveaway it just made sense to do run with sf1000. - I popped more gg seeds so whatever females /8 will go to the hills. -these were vegged with the sf1000 alone but I’m...

    DIY plant protein hydroslate

    Hey all. Been reading up on aminos which got me thinking if the possibility to make your own rough mixture would be possible?
