  1. I had looked at the fog set up. It would be ideal, but it just seemed too easily clogged The simple unit Resto found seems ideal. I am guessing you too found issues with reservoir/water temp causing root rot and as a result you set them into the floor to help in water temp control. The one question I would have regarding the Rainforest unit would be plant size. It looks like the spacing would limit you to relatively small plants.
  2. Resto, I looked all over the net for detailed cross-section pics of the RainForest and I could not find any external inputs, either electric or pneumatic, ie. air pump. I understand the concept of a spinning disc creating a spray, it is well established technology for paint sprayers and aerators used to increase the dissolved oxygen level in wastewater treatment. What causes the disk to spin?
  3. I grew aeroponics for about 10 years. The process while shortening yield times increases your reliance on technology. Any failure on the water pump feeding the spray nozzles results in crop loss after less than 12 hours (depends on when it happens, i.e. lights on/off and strain). Control of reservoir temp is critical. The process of spraying your nutrient solution tends to bring the nutrient solution up to the ambient air temp. Also the pump itself adds heat to the reservoir. This is not a deal breaker, but you may find yourself looking at a chiller to control the reservoir te
  4. Licensed dispensaries are required to only purchase their inventory from licensed growers and processors.
  5. I was thinking they are outdoors. If the weather holds I would go another two weeks.
  6. Looks like they need a week or two more. How many weeks in flower when the pics were taken?
  7. Democratic Republic of Congo is really sketchy. I was recently involved helping a customer ship a package there. No one (i.e. UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL) would touch going there. Found that the only one that would touch DRC was DHL and only if one were just shipping correspondence. They indicated that the government would destroy any paperwork that include any political references.
  8. Is this in a different bill? I may be wrong, but I thought that the microbusiness licenses were adult use/recreational businesses. The bill listed above only relates to "medical" licensees
  9. In the metro areas mail has become a real problem. We are on the Eastside of Detroit. Mailing something to Lansing can take up to two weeks. You can send certified mail and get a tracking number, but they are not bothering to scan alot of the mail so you can never really know where it is, all you know is the addressee did not get it.
  10. The big growers, i.e. 1500 plants, are lobbying to move that number up to something like 6,000+ plants under a Class C license. They submitted a bill to change the number to 4,500, but slipped in a redefinition of plant to a "flowering" plant. Interestingly is they have Republican support for the bill. http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/2019-2020/billintroduced/House/htm/2020-HIB-5547.htm Key part of the new words...

  11. On 5/14 Whitmer OK'd telemed for card renewal.... 7. Strict compliance with sections 3(a)(1) and 3(q)(2) of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act, Initiated Law 1 of 2008, MCL 26423(a)(1) and (q)(2), is suspended only to the extent necessary to allow relevant medical evaluations to be conducted via telemedicine.
  12. I believe the term is "sham sale" I can understand why the question is asked. You have storefronts in detroit selling just clones as well as folks selling thru facebook and instagram. So it must be legal! All the comments above are correct, it is illegal. If your tolerance for that sort of thing is high enough, you should at least have a lawyer on speed dial.
  13. I would suggest that this decision will lead to local cities, towns and villages enacting caregiver zoning laws that will not only require a permit, but also inspections that limit the square footage of your grow, require inspections related to electrical and plumbing issues and discharge issues related to how you dispose of runoff. The decision is not focused on using industrial property or landlord rights, but rather permits and inspections of your grow. The court states in their conclusion, pg 16... "Accordingly, Byron Township may require primary caregivers to obtain a permit and pa
  14. The Michigan Supreme court ruled yesterday that cities and towns could require patients and caregivers to get grow permits and require building inspections. Below is the first page of their ruling and at the bottom is a link to the entire decision. This is sure to be litigated further so it is not a immediate red flag, but something to be aware of...

  15. I was surprised Fluence did not come out on top. Not due to the $, but as I understand it they are a part of Sylvania/Osram. One would think that they would have access to the best lighting technology out there.
