    Default The most dumb thing you have done on a grow

    I'll start it off, I had a slow baking soda vinegar drip in mt tent. I had a large water bottle full of vinegar on my table and though that I need to water my plants and proceeded to water them with vinegar....

    Not really something I’ve done, but it was pretty stupid... had my tent open late one night just watering and checking on my plants, suddenly there’s a bang from my window. I spun around expecting to see some dude climbing through, only too see that actually my curtains fell down and I was providing street lights for the neighbourhood... never moved so fast in my life

    Nice when you have a bit of a salt build-up though.

    Pmsl!!!

    I wanted to go from DWC to soil, went shop bought soil, started growing in it.... plants were having problems straight away.

    Early days it was, so came to the talk, said wtf is wrong with these, bud light year says " show us the bag of the medium" which I did, then he says " that's coco, not soil, you have to treat coco like hydro"

    Ooooooooo lol that's where my love for coco started

    Great thread!

    When I first started I went cheap on everything. ALL of my research was focused on going cheap and not "bang for buck". So, I ended up with around 70 grams off of 2 photos. The only thing I didn't go cheap on was the carbon filter and in-line fan and that was all I was able to use in my next grow. Anyone want to buy $200 worth of CFLs and useless wireing etc? LOL

    Just the one thing?

    How about feeding seedlings that have only just popped their heads up? A soil grow & half strength feed - Needless to say, they all fried

    Well.... just this weekend i accidentally uprooted an auto seedling breaking all the roots and 10 min later broke off my entire Babushka plant leaving just 3 branches.

    And that was this weekend only. My list of stupidity goes on and on.

    My 2nd grow with photos I had the timer set the wrong way round the plants were only receiving 6 hours light a day, to make things worse it took me 1-2 months to even realise this was happening, only realised because they went straight into flower. I'm sure I won't make that mistake again

    You reminded me of something else LOL

    I started the veg of my first grow in the stand-up shower in our master bedroom. There was a friction shower rod, so I moved it to the middle of the shower to hang my lights. I covered the front and top of the shower with horticulture plastic to control the light. I put my baby girls in and walked away very pleased with how smart I was. That night, the wife and I went to bed and we both had just fallen asleep .... CRASH!!! I ran in to check WTF it was. Humidity (90%) and heat (39° c) created condensate on the walls of the shower and the friction rod slipped, dropping my lights on the babies. Thankfully they were only uprooted and I was able to replant them and carry-on half assing the rest of my grow.
