I received my Grobo one week ago and planted Bubba Kush after a lot of debate around which seed to plant as most of what I have in my seed inventory is not in the recipe section - I have genetics that are listed, but not auto-flowers, which is what I kept seeing over and over again. Even the Bubba Kush was slightly different than what I have from Humboldt Seed Organization. I have Bubba Kush Feminized (not auto-flower). I was pretty disappointed in the selection as I am not a fan of the auto-varieties.
So I planted the seed and the machine did what it was supposed to do, adding the distilled water and the lighting functioned as indicated. One week in and no germination. I checked the seed carefully with tweezers and it appears the tail is just breaking the side, so we may be OK, but I have never had a seed take this long, so I am a little skeptical we will have a winner.
While changing the water, I noticed that the Acid bottle (#2) was 3/4 empty! I am using distilled water I purchased in 1 gallon bottles from Walmart (same exact bottles the guy in last Grobo marketing video used from the email that was just sent out). There is no way that is correct, so I am very concerned that something is wrong with this unit. Has anyone else had this experience with the Grobo?
I already submitted a support ticket, but also wanted to post here. Have I made a mistake in buying this machine? I’m not having a very positive start with the Grobo and I have been a grower for many years, just not using a box like this… and it was my only Bubba Kush seed…
