    Default COVID-19 Growing...

    Us Mods & Admin have been discussing a few things about this lock down... and how to use the lock down to our advantage to do something that we would never normally do - and maybe something we will never do again!

    The goal? - to grow one ounce (expect more but one is the ultimate low point) of branded weed. Something better than you will ever be able to buy.... something you have grown yourself!

    The kit?

    4" fan/filter setup - £44.99 ebay 251848557363
    60X60X140CM tent - £32.90 eBay 352821410287
    200w CFL & reflector, £36.85 ebay 271654281424
    1L Plant Magic Old Timers Bloom £10.79 ebay 302681870018
    Simple Value White 7" Desk Fan Argos £14.99
    2M 4-Way Socket Power Lead Extension - £5.00 (includes delivery) - eBay 133320670319
    Fabric Pots 10L for £2.37 each (other sizes available) - eBay 153437310290
    Budget Hygrometer Temperature Humidity - £2.99 (includes delivery from UK) - eBay 123026143519
    Verve Soil 50L £4.60
    Ratchet hangers £5.49 - ebay 392685216949
    Beans - £5.49 - https://www.cannabis-seeds-store.co....eminised-seeds (plus 1 free seed)

    The cost? £168.83

    The cost of one ounce of weed guessed at £200

    One grow, one plant & you will get your money back, decide you don't like growing... but what an experience - and at no cost!

    Oh! This is designed so, if you don't like it, throw it all away at no loss... the worst you can really do is get your money back

    Last one so they've ramped up the price whilst they gain more stock

    Thanks gentlemen!!
    Fight for your health.
    Hug those who care about you, do all you can for those you love (if they want it). We just never know when it might be the last time we talk to them or see them.

    I've made my shopping list and have ordered the grow light and hangers so far. The seller with the fan/filter setup is away until the 18th so I'm on the hunt for one that will arrive quicker. With eveything I'll be coming under budget at as I already have the extension lead, desk fan and beans. Hoping to grow an ounce. I will start a thread once I've got all the kit!

    We did a bit of a straw poll behind the scenes & we reckoned that it was a good enough kit for a 3/4 ounce grow.... then toss it in the bin (It ain't designed to last!)

    As long as I can get a smoke at the end of it I'm happy plus it will be something to do during the lockdown.

    A 60x60 foot print and a 200W CFL for a 3/4 ounce grow huh...

    In all honesty that's a no-brainer.

    Take care of your kit and your kit most of the time will take care of you. In all honesty I am nearly losing sleep for that tent.

    Good call M_C although the odds are better than £170 for the kit over £200 street weed, south coast its £280-300 and I've been told its £340-380 in Camden, perfect if you come from Doncaster

    I've heard about rising prices but, to be honest, I laugh t it all....

    Grow your own for a fraction of the street prices
