One 1000w Light

A grow room is not cheap and the cost of maintaining the system is a large monthly expense.1000w kit Lets look at the investment price for just one light.

One air-cooled hood (the fixture that holds the bulbs) can cost $250 at your local grow store. The ballast (provides the proper starting and operating electrical condition to power the lamp) can run $199 and up. 1000W light bulbs start at $69 and max out around $250. A mechanical timer will run you $10 to $20. A 6″ in-line fan (to cool the hood) will be about $100 and then the ducting, to carry cold air in and hot air out, will be about $20. So, if you were to walk in to the grow store and buy top quality equipment for just one light kit, it could cost up around $630 per light. With that said, most grow store’s offer this same kit with low end equipment for around $450 if you can catch a good sale (not including the in-line fan). If you shop online you can find all this equipment for $350.

inlinefanNow, if you have more than one light in a room or are growing in a small space than an A/C unit is going to be needed to keep the temperature under 80 degrees. Portable units are the best priced option for grow rooms. They start around $250 and go up from there. A split unit A/C  would be ideal but they start out around $1500.

Each 1000w light coa:cst about $40 a month to run. What they don’t tell you is the cost of running an inline fan and the A/C unit to keep the room cool from all the heat put out by the lamp/lamps.

A grower with 2-1000w h.p.s. (flower) and 1-1000w m.h. (veg) can expect a $300-450 a month power bill depending on the time of year and your normal usage.

Spring Growing Problems

Soon old foes will soon be out of their winter refuge.

Creep and crawl they will, straight to your nice warm garden. Your garden being the most temperate climate, is prime for early infestation.

Keep an eye out for these intruders. It’s much easier to prevent an infestation rater than remove an invasive species.

I have sticky pads ready for the first catch of the year.

As a preventive maintenance you can spray your plants down with soapy water. A few drops of Ivory dish soap in a spray bottle filled with water is all you need.

Make sure to keep a clean grow room as bugs and other things can easily be overlooked under a pile of leaves left on the floor or some spilled dirt.

Do you want to grow more or better?

I’ll take better any day of the week.

Higher resin content, higher trichome production, higher THC levels and higher CBN levels all add up to better more potent medication.

Street grade marijuana will become a thing of the past. With today’s law reforms going on all over the states, breeders will be able to work openly with out the constraints of the past and produce new strains all the time.

We have healthier plants with faster growth and more vigorous seedling that have shorter flowering time or auto flowering, because of some hard working breeders.

What is to come from this little weed?
