I know everyone has their own way of growing and different levels of experiences and expectations
Yes the unit has problems. Yes they are not being fixed as quickly as you all would like but they are what they are.
All differences aside I’ve finally grown enough cannabis that one of my two machines is paid for.
I currently have completed four grows between 2 machines for a total weight of 120g having grown no cannabis ever before. Once the 2 grows in my current units are complete if I average my harvests at a minimum of 40g each I’ll have hit 200g.
Pricing in Alberta ranges from 12 $ a gram up to 20$ plus so for sale of argument I’ll use $11.99 and $14.99 as a price point.
Based on that I will have grown $2400 in cannabis at the 12$ mark and just under $3000 at the$15 mark.
That means I’ve paid for 1 unit and warranty after 1.5 years of growing. 6 successful grows. Four failures and I think 3 seed no pops.
I have some fairly complicated repairs to do on the next grow and have the parts sitting there to do them. It’s a pain in my ass for sure but the unit works and does what it says and I am learning a ton.
Would I change to dirt?
Yes I understand you can grow 2 lbs on one plant. However these units are more in alignment of the time I want to spend on it and how much space/venting and electrical energy I’m willing to provide to them.
I smoke 30 to 50g a month so quantity is something that’s considered.
This price point does not include about 300 to 400 in nutrients, replacement items or seeds which have totalled about 250$ canadian.
Hope this helps people see a time frame in which they can potentially make a return on their investment
As compared to dirt where you’ll make it back on 1 grow it is totally a matter of your lifestyle and particular circumstance.
Hope that helps
