Gorilla Grow Grow-off “Grow Strong Cup”

Hi everybody!

About six weeks ago I received an email asking me to submit a video for a growing contest. A lot of them are on the inbox , but seeing this was from a reputable company, I shot a quick video with a six year old iPhone SE, literally turning it around in my hand because certain functions no longer worked, and, they actually liked it! Took me into the semi finals where I had to submit a second video, done in the same fashion.

They picked me as a contestant! I believe they chose nine people from the US/Canada (Mexico?)

A zoom call was done with the person from Gorilla Grow on Tuesday and was informed of the parameters for my participation and realized my 12 year old computer along with my aforementioned phone was not going to cut it. Got a new computer Wednesday night with a new phone, Thursday, got them all talking together with the old ones and my old drives and networking, and Friday kicked out this video, as the deadline was Friday night. Saturday afternoon , they asked if titles could be added , so that was done and here we are.

Theequipment is supposed to arrive in about a week or so, and videos will be done on the takedown of the old tent and replacement with the new and the new light etc. @preybird1 genetics and spray them all with Bob’s @TheMadFlascher Bud buster pro are going to be used for this.

I’m an old man, I’m not the best at all the social media stuff, so, if you’d follow along with this I’d appreciate it. Any suggestions, critiques, any way to improve it or any help you want to add would be greatly appreciated and welcomed. If you’re in the area come see me.

Congrats! Looking forward to seeing the results, the clocks at 4:20 gave me a laugh.

We have/had a little home stay/B&B for a long time. Many years ago, guests (with small children) asked, “why are all your clocks stopped at the same time?”

INSTANT lies sprung from my lips “both of those clocks, tick and both chime. One chimes every fifteen minutes, then counts down the hour, the other just chimes on the hour We have a small house and one night, after being awakened multiple times, I couldn’t take listening to my life be noted second-by-second, tick-by-echoing tick, so I came out here and stopped the pendulums in both and that is where they stayed.”

People who knew did not need to ask …

I’m following! @wow_arizona Why not do a seed and a clone grow, since you’ve got multiple tents running? That garden look like a little paradise by the way dude!!

Well done @wow_arizona , great video you have created and wishing you the best growing this competition. I also help stopped clocks at 4:20pm, one in my kitchen is 4:15 so it gives me time to roll one up. Also changed the time of a stopped clock at my local pub, it was a significant time the clock was stopped, now everyone things the event happened at 4:20am!!

Excellent community/pub outreach on your part and I like the kitchen clock idea!

The equipment arrived and I had to do unboxing videos. These are my firsts and I hadn’t worked with chroma key/green screen in many years, so there are some glitches!

Thanks! I’m having a great time making them, relearning stuff I had forgotten. I had never done a video like this before, so I just watched a few. I set up the camera and let it roll…

I should start putting everything together tomorrow. I’m going to press a little rosin in the beginning of the day and practice making a time lapse so when I do the tent construction, Light and fan installation, I can do a time lapse video of that.
