What's the most critical piece of gear in your grow?

The mind of the grower.

On a more serious note. Since you can’t control a growers mind.

I am going to pick a soilless media, MetroMix 510. My reasons

  • You can grow directly in the 2.5 cu ft bag. (We lay bags end to end, poke drain holes in bottom of bag)

  • High quantity composted bark (promotes biological controls)

  • Highly stable medium for long grows.

  • An six or eight head drip manifold gives perfect coverage

  • Reduces labor cost for handling

While a growers mind is infinite… it is useless without a PH pen, gosh dang it! Those buggers are like tater chips… Ya’ll know you started out with one, then had a drawer full of em!:cowboy_hat_face:

Let’s change this to a more Shakespearian. “A grower shall live and die by the pH pen” or “there is no sword greater than a pH pen” :rofl:

And who picked 7 as neutral? Anyway. :smirk:

7… Why always 7? I hate 7… What is so significant about 7! Lol!:cowboy_hat_face:

Agreed! We can get the cannabis laws changed, but the pH scale would require a new world order. :rofl:

Obviously no one piece of equipment completes the puzzle without the other pieces already being there. But, we would definitely say it’s the dehumidifier which brings that X factor! :slight_smile:

Climate control is, arguably, the biggest and most rewarding challenge in a grow op. Allowing buds to grow to full potential while minimizing loss to diseases, molds and pests. Dehumidification (especially coupled with good air circulation) turns this into a reality.
