Flush with the lid for the first ten days normally @DRaider
At which point your young plant with no established immune system (roots) is susceptible to damping-off.
A good little article we put together here to explain what it is and how we designed Grobo to protect against it.

Worth the read!

You’ll notice in everyone’s photos who has overcome it and had a successful grow, the red band never really goes away. Plants are really cool what they can do and don’t do!

Day 15

I am growing in 2 boxes.
Same strain Bruce Banner Auto
I will keep 1 box as a control and the other as the variable.

“Just Win Baby” is the control box and will only get Grobo Nutes through the grow. All else will be the same.

“1983” will receive “Other A” nutes with the same environmental conditions as the control box.

I plan to do a 3rd box (Silver n Black), and use “Other B” nutes in 2 weeks. Wanted to spread things out some.

I want to see if nutes really make a difference. I will reveal the names of the nutes once I am done.

All is good

The 3rd box :package: popped its seed and now we have 3 ladies growing. All with Bruce Banner Auto. All in the same environment.

Box #1
Just Win Baby - Grobo

Topped and trimmed. Responding very well. Standing at attention when I open the door :sunglasses:


Box #2
1983 - Nute Type A

Topped and trimmed. I cut some huge fan leaves away to allow light to hit the newly Topped nodes. Very bushy plant 🪴.


*** I know she looks tired. I just sprayed some magic healer on her… Plant is OK, I topped and cut just b4 the picture. Changed water 3 days ago. She is drinking… Discovered she had a low water :droplet: level and the PPM had increased to over 1000 in the last few days. I added more RO water. PPM at 750. She should be standing tall with new growth in 48 hours. Not sure why the Grobo App did not tell me my water level was low? :thinking:. I try not to look under the hood too much thinking the app would tell me when water or PPM were out of the normaly measured ranges.

Box #3
Silver n Black - Nute Type B

Just finished the 1st week of Germ. Got her Dumbo Ears and she ready to triple in size the next few days.


HAVING loads of fun using the machine and figuring out how to make adjustments.

My girls are doing quite well. Grobo is keeping all of them lush green and growing.

Still trying to figure out the water top offs. Are they initiated by the sensors or are they just appointments on a planned calendar?

Anyone know?

4 days after your drain and fill you’ll get a notification that your plant is thirsty that is the top up notification.
You can use notifications to activate your fill but you have to wait till you get it which is usually around when you planted. If your doing it earlier or later then manually through maintenance / fill works well.

Forgive me but I’ve never received a top off notice. Last water change was super low. Should I be receiving a top off notice @Todd.grobo ? Thank you :blush:

Are you in stage 2? Early veg

@Todd.grobo, Yes, week 2 of transition.

I am going to extend but these are Autos…

They are starting to show signs of moving to flower :blossom: on their own. I think I will see white hairs in about a week.

Do you think :thinking: extend a week or let it go into flower?

Likely because in stage 2 you’re at the middle water level sensor, not the high water level sensor. Good catch

I would definitely extend them, they are happy but could be bigger before they go into transition! Maybe another 10-14 days more for the one in vegetation still. The ones in transition have been in transition for more than 5 days so I would not flip them back. You will definitely be able to see the difference between the three plants of the same strain now with the different cycles. Kind of a good idea for a first grow so you can see how each plant responds to different things.
*such as extending one and not the other two, etc

I will extend both. One 7 days and the other for 14.

I do have another question:

When the planybis larger and you have some LST/SCROG net implemented, how do you check your PH or PPM?

When you lift the lid, it will be difficult due to the plant tie downs ect…
@Todd.grobo @STANK

How do you check they data without harming the plant at this stage?

The straight answer is you don’t. If the plant grows to a perfect height you won’t even be able to lift to the lid.
This is why maintenance is or should be mandatory in between grows. It helps maintain the numbers you’re reading are accurate. When cleaning in between grows, it’s always suggested to clean and calibrate your probes, clean and soak your air stone, clean out any dust in the fans, etc.
If you believe you’re having a plant issue, the fastest response is usually off the forums, if you want an official response, please send us photos and a ticket at support and we can diagnose most issues within 24 hours. We do have an horticulturist on our team with extensive grow knowledge.

Some users I have seen pull their PH probe before they flip to flower, give it a gentle scrub and sometimes even health check it right then before they flip to flower. That buys them another 2 months before the plant finishes and they can clean and calibrate.
