    Default Cost of growing

    Has anyone ever worked out the cost of growing?
    I know it’s difficult as the more you use your gear (tents, lights, ballasts, etc) the more the cost reduces, and factors like time of year and varieties all play a part.
    I know mines probably way more than I think but I love doing it so within reason sod the cost.
    Just interested in thoughts

    Never really thought about it. But each grow for me....roughly
    2 bags of coco =£30
    1ltr of A&B =£20
    1ltr of Rhizo =£30
    Seeds =£30
    1ltr liquid silicon =£15
    4ltrs of Gpm =£50 every 2 or 3 grows
    1l ltr of pk13/14 =€20 every 2 or 3 grows
    Bulbs every few grows =£30 quid

    Add in leccy cost.....probably talking the price of two oz?


    Best no thinking of it all actually

    The large grow shop I visit has been running a drive through Monday to Friday since lock down and the lads say they've never been busier, good job as online stores want £30 for a £10 bag of soil with their delivery and heavy item surcharge

    Very reasonable of them. I didnt attempt to check while the nazis were abusing stop powers but since relaxed happy days.

    Mine is some football pitch sized warehouse. At least ten different white rental vans outside loading pallets of medium with forklift. Heres me haggling how i used to pay a tenner a bag for coco and he wanted 11

    PMSL - I often feel like Sgt. Wilson at my local shop.

    "I say, may I use your convenience? And while I'm at it, do you have any lovely pipe cleaners?" whilst a fort-lift hurls bags into the back of a 7.5 tonner.
    I'd love to do it and you know you've always had it coming

    Probably spent a couple of grand wasting thru crap off ebay etc and getting set up to where I am now. Hindsight is wonderful

    However my 1st ever grow netted me ~10oz from 3 plants. And round here @ £200 for a zip of super silver haze I covered my costs by not having to buy.
    So now I justify my spending to the Mrs with "It's ok, i'll make that back on the next grow with what I save not buying overpriced smoke"
    NO SELL, NO SMELL, NO TELL!!!

    “Let me give you youngsters a present. Five mantras to carry with you through your lives. These are mine:

    Number one, all men are equal - therefore no one can ever be your genuine superior.

    Number two, your future is as bright as you make it.

    Number three, change is a constant of life, so you must never ever lose your wisdom.

    Number four, if you want to live a full and complete human life, you have to be free.

    And number five, Love is the answer. Love is the answer. ” - Rik Mayall
