Some Feedback - Not Impressed

I’ve been planning my next attempt already with trimming the pod and soaking it in water spiked with a healthy dose of h2o2 before planting.

I’ve also been thinking, since I have a few pods…

Seeing how that goes, I may eventually cut down the bottom of my lid (if it can take it) so that I can maybe trim pod even further, essentially getting closer to new design. Who knows, I might not be brave enough to try that. I probably lack the proper tools to keep the lid from bending or breaking while cutting the hole down.

By the time I’m ready to buy anything ya see, I’ll be ready to load up my cart and get the new lid and peat and know how it’s working out for people. Probably. Idk. LOL.

I know that sounds like a good idea but Don’t do this… Your going to kill all your beneficial bacteria… Your asking to get Root rot

Sorry to hear that you’re having issues. I bought mine in June and it took 30 days to arrive. I have one unsuccessful grow do to damping off. Just finished with one good grow a week or so ago. I went through 1.5 bottles of each nutrient bottles which was advertised to last at least one grow.

Potential buyers needs to know that nutrient bottles may last one grow each if their grow is flawless but that’s never the case. They need to include stuff like that in their advertisement.

What about cleaning off seeds with h2o2 before germ?

I personally wouldn’t. Seedlings / seeds don’t need anything but water.

Sometimes I think less is more

This is what I did to mine. Never had issues with damping off but I usually transplant these into a different dwc set up so it makes it easier with 4" net pots. I have sprouted 4 plants so far like this I also put a plastic dome over the cup to keep in moisture. I have my unit listed for sale and the main reason is because I cannot see any info on EC,PH ect. Doesnt sound like they will ever change this. Also about using 1.5 bottles per grow I have had to send in tickets asking them to back down my nutrients because of burn.

Has no one ever tried trimming a coco pod to fit inside one of those nets? Have I asked that before? :joy: :thinking: :thinking:

There’s a lot of info here. It’s basically when your seed or roots are dying due to lack of oxygen (air), especially when dealing with DWC growing.

Here’s some info:

The truth needs to come out about this product. It sucks. I’ve had the Grobo unit for about 2.5 years and haven’t had a clean run yet. The problem I’m having at the moment is that the lights turn off all the time. Let me repeat. this is the problem I’m having now. there been a lot of other problems in the past. I’m about to throw this product out the window. If I could give anyone advice if they are thinking about spending $2500 of there hard earned money one this product is DONT!!! It sucks.

Sorry your having problems

Pete if there is anything we can do let us know.

I’m not sure what the lighting problem is I would get in touch with support on that one.

trust me I have. and frankly I’m tired of dealing with them. they tell me to move my unit in a colder room. so frustrating. anyway I’m not looking for answers at this point I want the truth to come out about this product. it sucks.

Trust me I have. And frankly I’m tired of dealing with them

This is a real bummer for sure. I can’t imagine 2.5 years and still no harvests yet? Not one?

I am also very surprised - as a new grower, only on my first grow and having experienced a handful of problems myself so far, I found Support to be very attentive and a good resource in getting my grow dialed in. It’s still a learning game for me so I rely on their expertise.

I also find that the majority of people in the AllGrowers forum are a good resource too and have nothing but good intentions.

It’s really unfortunate that this was not your experience.

I have gotten product. I’m just saying the runs are anything from smooth. The machine is faulty. And it seems like it’s bc it’s them controlling everything from their end.

What have they said regarding a possible Full Refund :thinking:

After 2+ years I wouldn’t refund.
