Nice!!! That’s a good head “Start” there
Dumb question here…
But how does this save up to 4 weeks on your grow?
Is it because you can start a new grow, while the current grow is in the harvesting stage? So, you’re effectively overlapping 2 grows?
Or is it because it actually grows faster in the grobo start rather than in the grobo box?
You got it with that one. For instance, before, if you only use the Grobo… you’d have to wait all the way until harvest, cut down, and dry (typically) which takes 3-7 days depending, and then clean out the unit and start a fresh seed that is either just germinated or planted directly into the pod! Saves a lot of time
Technically, I do believe the Start will germinate and faciliate seedling growth slightly faster, because they include the plastic domes to put over top to keep the humidity very high which in turn should facilitate faster germination/seedling pop! You also can move the light much closer than the Grobo’s LED to provide super warm temps in combination.
Okay, I’m convinced.
I’m getting one
Nice! I sent you a msg!
Her first day in the grobo and she is happy and growing!
I used Gorilla Zkittlez/indica recipe because there wasnt one for zkillez glue.
Awesome review! Does the plant’s stalk look a tad bit lengthy?
For sure! In my prior post I explained how I had to do a bit of surgery on this one because it wasnt firmly rooted in the pod during the sprouting of germination. I stuffed as much of the root as I could see back into the pod successfully but I was a hair off.
Update: Cilantro still growing in the start!
Update: Transplant: Zkittlez Glue using a Gorilla Zkittlez recipe…
Love me some Michael Myers/Austin powers!
That transition went flawlessly!
How long was your sprout in the Start?
I took it out on the ninth day and transplanted it into the grobo on starting on day one of early veg.
hey @Bplatinum9 did you germinate your Zkittlez Glue inside the peat pod or outside first before placing it in the pod?
My Zkittlez Glue is actually a transplant from the grobo start!
I started it from seed and it popped the second day and was transplanted on the ninth day into the grobo!
Thanks for the info! I was debating if I should pop a seed inside the Grobo Start or germinate via paper towel method first before using the Grobo Start
