I’m on the other side of the fence!
Without both views represented there is no conversation, so dont shoot the messenger!
Hope its not a problem with those who need data to grow in a grobo!
Ive been growing in the grobo since 2019 with no data!
I have also been helping other growers as a Champion for a year!
I have never needed data to grow successfully!
I keep hearing people say that’s the only way to grow in the grobo successfully! And some have went as far as saying All or Everybody in full caps!
I see more people over do, miss diagnose, stress out, & kill their own grows by not being honest!
This is not a debate just my account of experience!
I could only imagine what would happen to grows with more data, as I see this very thing happen when allgrowers get a new bunch of people who start reading everybodies comments about how to grow and what to use, people won’t even grow one time without adding several things from everyone’s post, trying to have the best grow before even understanding how to grow or use the grobo!
I think its perfectly ok with a company who wants to keep there codes to themselves, because it doesn’t stop the grobo from working and they haven’t abandoned anyone!
To be honest I dont want to have to worry about all that stuff which is why I stopped using my hygrometer, ph pen,etc… a long time ago, it wasn’t until I tried my hand at tent growing that I appreciated the simplicity of the grobo!
I also look forward to the updates that @bjorn mentioned & all the hard work @Stephen puts in with his videos but I’m still for simplicity even though I’m sure all the techs are gritting their teeth at me! Lol!
I like what @Vicc said: because I too agree that patience, practice, & experience can grow anything!
"But with this data, I can see beginner growers destroying their grow if they do not know what they are doing and just blindly following a feed chart they found online so data exposure can be risky depending who the audience is.
Growing takes a lot of practice, patience, experience and being attentive to your plants behavior, the automation the grobo offer does make it much easier for your average person to get stated with growing, like myself. I feel that many of us start feeling confident with growing inside the grobo due to its simplicity that we tend to want more in order to take our grow to the next level (or correct any deficiencies they are experiencing which can be observed visually by looking at your plant), I do not think the grobo was intended to scale based on the user’s skill or desire. Its like a catch 22.
This does not mean the entire grobo grow experience is automated, there are many factors to growing that still requires human intervention (even with automated commercial grow operations, they require human interventions on a daily basis and have to operate 365 days a year), like keeping the environment temps, RH (can be automated with home thermostat), reservoir solution temps (can be automated with additional water chiller), microbe health, training, and plant clean up duties, coco pod moisture monitoring, co2 monitoring to ensure co2 ppm are consistently 400ppm and above."
