She looks great nice codeleon leaves I know I misspelled that but a lot bigger initial leaves than mine had!!
Update on the fan I just heard back from Todd at Grobo and he said that the fans are off during germination on the gen 2 units as well. So I guess that explains why my fan is not turning on when I hit the switch. We will see in a few days when we switch to early veg! Updates to come
Any chance you can post some pics of the entire inside of that unit?
I see the design has really changed! The water lines look to be located on the side instead of in front. If so, that was a brilliant idea, I always disliked them being in front!
p.s I always take my wicks out before I plant inside the grobo, I only use the wicks in the start because it has no bubbler!
@Bplatinum9 Yea the water lines come out of the back and are held on the back or side with a magnet.
Not having much luck with pictures for some reason they are coming out weird in both light modes
I’m not a huge fan of draining and filling from the rear/side with the new Gen 2. We had to reconfigure our grow room to accommodate. It might be ok if the hoses were longer and could bring them forward more. Draining from the side is going to be a bit tricky. At least for us and the space we’re working with.
Gonna start a seed tomorrow and get the box dialed in.
Yea I could see how that could be a challenge if it were in a tight space like they are meant to be. The tubes don’t reach very far you kind of need access to the side of the machine to make it happen.Thankfully for the time being it is not a problem for me.
@Bobface86, @C453Y, Very helpful for sure! Thanks for sharing!
I could see how tight spaces could be an issue for the Gen 2 going forward, maybe they can put a longer hose on in the future or make options available in the Grobo shopping cart. @Stephen.
Yes - now you’re talking. I would certainly purchase a longer one.
I see ya’ll and appreciate the feedback! Keep it coming, any other improvements to Gen 2 we can make?
Hey @Stephen I noticed upon assembly that there was a spot for fan 2 on the lower circuit board? Is this unit capable of two fans and is it something Grobo plans to offer in the future?
I would pay for longer D&F hoses for sure!
Furthering my other post. I would even pay additional for a service contract. I may be in the minority with this idea but it would be worth it to me. I’m not as handy as I used to be and am new-ish to growing so losing 2 days worth of support concerns me.
Well we drop a Jack Herer seed in the morning so as we move along with getting the Gen 2 dialed in and producing medicine, we will certainly share any ideas we come up with!
So I’m on day 17 of my grow in the gen 2 and I’ve been able to turn my fan on even in germination not that I was going to use it just yet but was just checking to make sure it was working. While we’re on the subject when should fan be started?
I guess it really depends on your setup as I wanted the hoses outside even before with the original Grobo. I find it simple and my hoses run around the back of the Grobo 2 and I fill and empty from the opposite right side. Plenty long enough, bucket right by the rear right corner. Or just dont pull them out the back and run the out the front same as the original. You dont have to run them out the back, leave inside and open the door during the drain/fills.
I am not sure you need a 2nd fan as I am thinking it might even be too much, looking for ways to lower the speed if I could like some fans do? The single fan in the Grobo 2 is about 10x better than the 2 in the original one.
I started a new grow this morning and my fan is on in the Grobo 2. So something is going on maybe as mine is on, and others say theirs is not???
They do offer longer warrantees, think they are $300-$450.
Let me know if it’s still on tomorrow I am curious mine is off and won’t turn on
I have a gen 2 manual fan do I need to have it on all the time from early veg til ???
So I shifted my schedule to early veg to see if my fan would come on as there seems to be some conflicting information on the forums. And nothing fan is switched on and no sign of life I guess we will see what’s going on. I wish there was some sort of straight up user guide. It seems like there are alot of questions that could be addressed. And users could know if you have a problem or not without reaching out
