Good Morning AG,
I’m pleased to share that I have recently wrapped up my first grow, here are a few details!
Strain: Chemdawg (seed was from a bag)
Dried bud weight: 31 grams (no training or topping used)
Sweet Leaf/Larf weight: 10 grams
MY food for thought
Think back to the first time you came across the Grobo, can you recall exactly what you first thought? The first thing I said to myself was the future is much cooler than I remember reading about as a child, I recall seeing flying cars, and “advanced” (smart) cities, never thought we’d have ourselves a personal robotic cannabis grow houses, but here we are! I never really thought I would actually purchase the Grobo. I mean think about breaking the news to your wife/husband who are have no experience/strong negative views towards cannabis, it could be a deal breaker for some, so you can imagine how I thought my conversation may go, but to my surprise my wife was very supportive of the investment.
When I originally made my order back in April of 2017, I recall my excitement thinking I’m going to grow my own medicine in my guest room without fear of mess, battling the elements of mother nature and very little thinking. Here we are one year later and I’m happy to be reporting about my first successful harvest, the priceless knowledge and experiences gained with my Grobo. That success didn’t come without its fair share of hurdles throughout, but with the help of the entire Grobo Team and working diligently with @Stephen we were able to adjust accordingly! I know looking back I wanted this machine to work with a true hands off approach, but looking back these failures that I experienced led me to a deeper appreciation for all that goes into the Grobo technology and engineering.
- Little to no mess
- Thinking is done for you (to a degree)
- Controlled environment (to a degree)
- Cool fucking design
- Overall footprint is very desirable for homes
- Prebuilt library of recipes
- Water Sensor Shield and Drying Rack
- Fan Noise (very loud, I know they were working on adjusting the algorithm, but no updates)
- Fluid Glass (I’m on my second door and both doors have experienced the same failures)
- Carbon Filter (I know this is a key concern internally)
- Reservoir Air Pump (still awaiting updated information)
- Application Interaction (lack of user notifications of when malfunctions, offline, sensor, etc. occur)
- Dry Mode - When selecting you are prompted to go through a setup of the Grobo as if you were starting a new grow (filling reservoir, adding nutrients, etc.) should just take you direct to the main “My Grobo” page.
So, I want to encourage anyone else out there who may be experiencing frustrations with similar failures just be patient (I hate hearing that shit too) these guys are busting their asses to bring us the best! As I see this forum begin to grow, the amount of knowledge being shared throughout is exciting and promising for Grobo and their vision.
The cannabis! Yes! First, I did not expect the bud to shrink down to the size they did once the drying was over! Again, I’m a noob when it comes to this matter and it was quite the undertaking after I had some time to really take it in. LMAO. Nonetheless, I’m beyond proud of myself! I grew my own fucking medicine! The smoke itself was very smooth and I can tell immediately the difference in terms of quality compared to my local stuff. As for the high, I’ve enjoyed the full body experience presented. I just wish I had more!
More will be here, Grow 2 has officially started! I will be taking another approach with Chemdawg to beat my previous yield and test my low stress training skilling!
@bjorn I would like to personally thank you for all that you have done since we first started our dialogue late last year. We’ve had an opportunity to personally meet (hand delivered Grobo) and it was a wonderful experience that I will always deeply appreciate. To you and the entire Grobo Team, thank you for all of the accommodations you have made throughout this experience, you guys truly have set the bar!
@Stephen I don’t know where I would be without you, sir! I know I’ve said thank you a million times, but I truly cannot thank you enough for all of your help, time, and knowledge! You were instrumental in my success with my plant and I am thankful for all that you have taught and shared with me! I look forward to this next grow and seeing where we can take it!
Good luck to all of the AG growers out there!
Thank you Grobo!
