Not a landlord but I had an infestation when a nearby house was demolished.

It's awful and creepy and gross. I'm so sorry.

This is what i used:

Advion roach bait gel everywhere.(keep away from pets - just put it in weird places pets dont go/cant' get to)Tip: Put dots on top of painters tape bc its hard to get off the walls$40(i have a ref # below, just search on amazon if you hate crap like that)https://www.amazon.com/advion-Plungers-Cockroach-Insecticide-Australian/dp/B00730QW70/ref=sr_1_3?crid=GONLARZ3FFB8&keywords=advion+roach+bait+gel&qid=1564993523&s=lawn-garden&sprefix=advion+roach%2Clawngarden%2C129&sr=1-3

You can also spray the whole house with insect growth regulator (IGR) which stops insects who touch it from reproducing. Try to only use in the house bc outside bugs we need. Its generally $15 on amazon

Hope that helps!

i've been paged for my link dump, so here it is. the first three links are detailed care sheets, then a tub tutorial, and the rest are product recommendations. read everything thoroughly, come back with any questions. let me know if any of the links don't work.

glass tanks can be very challenging for ball python husbandry due to the high amount of air flow with the screen top and the total lack of insulation with the glass walls. it's generally recommended to use tubs or pvc reptile cages instead. wood enclosures can also be suitable if they're designed well and sealed properly to protect the wood against moisture. glass tanks can work, but they require a lot of modification and maintenance, which you'll find tips for in the second link. i'll give you product recommendations to cover options for tanks, tubs, and pvc/wood enclosures.

  • the basics and then some
  • common problems
  • feeding problems
  • here is a tutorial to give you an example of how to set up a tub. this is what i would recommend for an immediate setup, and you could upgrade to a pvc cage upgrade later. note: this tutorial shows adhesive velcro to attach the thermo/hygro to the tub wall, but you should not do that. tape and other sticky adhesives should never be used inside the enclosure, your snake can get stuck on it and suffer serious injuries. hot glue is the easiest reptile-safe adhesive option. screws or bolts can also be used to mount things on plastic/wood walls.
  • pvc reptile cages are ideal. they have the husbandry benefits of a tub with the aesthetics/visibility of a tank, they're much lighter than wood or glass, and they will remain unaffected by decades of constant high humidity. animal plastics, boamaster, and boaphile plastics, are some popular companies. many people will use a tub for a young snake and upgrade to pvc later.
  • spyder robotics makes high quality thermostats to regulate your heat sources with pulse/proportional temperature control and various safety features. this is a popular cheap thermostat with simple on/off style with zero safety features. inkbird thermostats are also low-cost but overall higher quality than the hydrofarm type. any heat source should be regulated by a thermostat to ensure safe and appropriate temperatures.
  • heat tape or ultratherm heat pads are high quality and affordable under tank heater [UTH] options. this is a suitable heat source for most enclosure types. remember that a UTH will not provide ambient heat, it will only affect the temperature of the surface to which it is attached.
  • a porcelain base lamp and ceramic heat emitter [CHE] is the best ambient heat source for a tank, and it will also work for some pvc/wood enclosures. any heat lamp that emits light, even red or blue, should not be used at night.
  • a radiant heat panel [RHP] is the best ambient heat source in a pvc/wood enclosure. there are a few options, such as reptile basics and pro products.
  • a digital dual sensor thermometer/hygrometer allows you to easily monitor the warm side floor temperature [with the probe] as well as the ambient temperature and humidity [with the main unit].
  • an infrared thermometer allows you to spot-check surface temperatures anywhere in the enclosure.
  • these hide boxes are a cheap simple hide with a design that offers the best sense of security for your snake. cave style hides, cardboard boxes, plastic food containers, etc, can also be used. half logs are not appropriate hides.
u/knerys · 34 pointsr/snakes

FYI those stick on hygrometer/thermometers are very dangerous and sometimes even lethal - he is strong enough to accidentally pull it off the wall but not able to get it off himself if he gets stuck to it afterwards. Pet stores hawk them like candy and I wish they didn't, well intentioned snake parents buy them not knowing. Not only are they dangerous, they are also highly inaccurate. I'd suggest removing it ASAP and replacing it with something digital without adhesive. This is the one I use in my enclosures, the probe lets you get cool side and warm side in the same unit!

u/matt2001 · 28 pointsr/Futurology

If you are willing to cut 4 inch pvc and use a heat gun to mold the openings, this guy shows you how. I then put them in a 5 gallon bucket, food grade from Lowes, with a hole in the top for the tower and another one for adding water and nutrients.

I use a small pump rated for around 5 to 6 feet.

There are 3 nutrients that you can get on Amazon.

Hydroponic Tomato Fertilizer 4-18-38 1lb. 8 grams (10 for tomatoes)

Calcium Nitrate Fertilizer 15.5-0-0 2lb. 8 grams (10 for tomatoes)

Hydroponic Organic Magnesium Sulfate Soluble. 4 grams

I wrapped mine in kevlar Reflectrix. to keep them dark and insulated. Keep the water at around 4 gallons. Change the water and add new nutrient solution every couple of weeks... I use a hand pump, but there are other ways.

edit: I just wanted to add that I have towers connected to a timer. 1/2 hour on and off.

You can also purchase the plastic net pots and clay pebbles on Amazon.

u/ManafortsCellmate · 28 pointsr/microgrowery

This post will get downvoted to oblivion, but sadly this is simply the wrong sub to ask this question, unfortunately. As usual when this question gets asked here, every answer is ignoring your query, dismissing your budget, and instead is insisting that you NEED to spend 2-3 times as much instead. This simply isn't true, and this elitist attitude creates an unnecessary obstacle to people wanting to get their feet wet in this hobby.

You can achieve perfectly acceptable results with a 600 watts LED like this one..

Similarly, this one is a good choice for getting started.

In point of fact, there is a ton of snobbery and bro-science in this hobby. Interestingly the latest research on this subject seems to indicate that tuned-spectrum grow-lights might even be a waste of money, and that bog-standard 5000k LED light bulbs might be perfectly adequate for maximizing indoor-growing yields, at the least.

The Impact of Light Intensity and Spectrum-Tuning on Cannabis Yields

>The results show that holding all else constant, cannabis yields are primarily driven by the intensity of the lighting, whereas there is little evidence that tuned-spectrum lights have a significant increase in yield versus general-purpose, broad-spectrum lights. Moreover, the positive, apparently linear relationship between intensity and yields continues at least to 1500 µmols/m2· s, which is over twice the level provided by an HPS fixture in a grow configuration, which is currently the industry standard. These results are important for two reasons: First, many horticulture LED lights are tuned-spectrum varieties that justify a significant price premium above commoditized broad-spectrum LEDs by arguing that their proprietary spectrum increases the value of a grower’s yields. It is possible that spectrum tuning may improve the cannabinoid profile substantially enough to justify a price premium, but our results provide no evidence that spectrum tuning increases yields. Rather, the more profitable strategy would be to buy commoditized, high-intensity, broad-spectrum LEDs (like flood lights), which are about one-third the cost per watt of horticulture LEDs. The second reason these results are important is that the vast majority of growers use HPS lights. Those who use LED lights are using lights that were designed to use less electricity while providing the same light intensity as an HPS. Our results suggest that both these strategies reduce the grower’s expected profits, since both provide less light than is optimal when trying to maximize yields.

Having read this, I purchased these LED bulbs, splitters, and hanging cords from Amazon, and am running two of those on a single plant in my north facing window as an experiment. So far, the plant is doing just fine, and it seems to be progressing as well as the plant I have under a 600 watt COB.

u/Terkala · 17 pointsr/Futurology

The title is rather innacurate, I agree. But let's look at what he has actually made.

His machine takes these solar panels, which cost $0.50 per watt (peak output), and wires the components into a series then seals them against the elements (likely costing ~$0.25 for plastic/glue/ect, wild guess there). Meaning you can get $0.75 per watt for a solar panel that you can stick anywhere.

For comparison, a medium scale solar panel costs around $1.15 per watt. This includes a charge controller, which costs about $70 on its own (and the $70 has been included in the cost-per-watt).

So instead of having a huge panel that may need repair and may have one component fail which takes the whole thing offline, you have a hundred plastic packet solar panels. That each cost less than half as much.

If it works as advertised, it has the potential to bring home solar panel costs way down by a third, and make maintenance easier (just throw it out and replace the broken ones). As well as making installation costs easier because you'd really just need a big box that has divots to place the plastic wrapped solar panels in.

u/Keifru · 13 pointsr/Sneks

Sounds like you were getting outdated or flat-out incorrect information and those 'experienced snake owners' are likewise misinformed. There are very few snakes that legitimately have evolved to thrive on sand-based substrate (irony being the Sand Boa is not one of them; they live in sandy soil which is very different composition than straight sand). The Ball Python is native to the svannah/jungles of Sub-Saharan Africa. Its dirt, soil, and burrows. Not a majority or even significant amount of sand.

Additionally, if I extrapolate correctly from this singular picture, your BP is also in a glass enclosure and has a log-style hide. The former makes keeping humidity in the 55~80% range a difficult exercise, and the latter, is a stressor as BPs do best with a hide that has a single-entrance or is cave-like; the more points of contact, the better, and a single entrance means they can feel safer.

I'm going to steal _ataraxia's ball python dump and toss it below:

Durring photosynthesis plants release much more oxygen than they consume. Photosynthesis requires light, not necessarily sun light. LED Grow lights are low cost (~$25) and consume little power (~25watts).

In fact, indoor plants not only improve air quality, but also have a calming effect, reducing panic in a stressful situation.

u/DJsupaman · 11 pointsr/CanadianMOMs

> i basically just need a light and thats it? if i want to grow autoflower only

oh boi... alright here we go.

youll need duct fans for both ventilation and heat dissipation, especially if you go with HPS/MH lights 600/1000watts will require reflectors with ducting so you can connect to it. This will need to exhaust out of your tent. Then you will need a intake fan coming preferably from outside. Youll most likely also need a Carbon filter attached in series to your exhaust fan. Your light will have a ballast as well, which creates a good amount of heat so plan for that to be located outside your tent. Youll also need smaller fans in the corners so you can keep a good air circulation going (hurricane fans are great). Also consider using T5 lights when starting your seeds off as your higher wattage lights are not good for seedlings. Also get a few supplies like gorilla tape and duct clamps and anything else you might need to secure everything together.

When it comes to growing, even if you are only doing autos youll need smart pots, fertilizer, promix HP, perlite plus both vegging and flowering nutrients. Have access to PH up and down solution, and also get a Ph Pen + PPM meter (TDS).

Ive only linked amazon, there are probably other local options for you.

u/ThePienosaur · 11 pointsr/ballpython

Red light isn't good, you'll want a heat mat (MAKE SURE you have a thermostat for it or it will get too hot) and possibly a ceramic heat emitter (also needs a thermostat) for air heat. What are the temps and humidity and how do you measure them? Glass tanks usually don't hold humidity well and often aren't good for bps. You need at least 2 good hides, one for each side. They should be snug and enclosed with only one opening, preferably identical, half logs don't work.

Someone should come by with a really good care sheet, read it, it has some great info. I know this might be a lot of information, but having a good setup is important and will save you headaches in the future.

Edit: I found the care sheet. Credit to u/_ataraxia.

u/birdsbirdsbirdsbirds · 10 pointsr/snakes

OK, some specific advice to your situation follows. However, I recommend you carefully read through _ataraxia's post (pay special attention to the caresheets). That should answer a lot of your questions, and give you good advice for keeping a BP in a tank.

---------------------------------

I've never heard of corn substrate before, how does it do under high humidity? Keep an eye out for mold issues.

Humidity: 80-90 is fine, but will be incredibly difficult in a glass tank with a mesh top. You can get away with ~60% humidity most of the time.

Hides: In the wild, BPs hide in tiny rat holes/rodent dens. They like to feel tight, snug, and secure in their hides. These log hides aren't great at replicating those natural conditions because they have large openings at two ends. Please consider switching both hides to something more secure (even cardboard boxes are fine in a pinch, and these are highly recommended).

Mesh Top: Use tin foil to block off everything except where the lamp sits. This will reflect heat and humidity back down into the tank.

Temps/Humidity: I don't seen a digital gauge in your enclosure. Analog temperature and humidity gauges are notoriously inaccurate (like... WAY off). Digital gauges are cheap and reliable ways to monitor snake-level conditions in the enclosure. You can usually find them at your local Wal-Mart, even.

Water Placement: Most people put their water dish under the lamp so the evaporation increases ambient humidity. However, real estate in your enclosure is limited, especially when you add that second hide. So putting the water dish in the middle might be your best bet. Especially because you do want hides on each of the warm and cool sides.

But yeah, read _ataraxia's caresheets and follow that advice.

Edit: Instead of getting a new tank as she grows up, please consider getting a PVC reptile enclosure instead. Many are designed and made for snakes (whereas tanks are designed for fish!), so they'll make it much easier to maintain heat and humidity and keep your snake comfy and happy. Right now your tank appears a bit small and sparse...

u/Tack122 · 9 pointsr/houston

They get mobile in the summer and will travel into your home. This is the most important time to keep a handle on them, you'll see giant watering style roaches and teeny German cockroaches in Houston.

Germans are the bigger concern, they're the sort that likes to infest homes and when an infestation gets going it can be tough, if you're infested you'll see tens or hundreds scatter when you turn on the kitchen lights at night.

If you just see one or two on wet objects occasionally they're probably traveling. Best to use some sort of bait poison in my opinion. I swear by advion cockroach bait which I buy in syringes from Amazon.

It's peanut butter looking gel you lay out near cracks and crevices, along baseboards, backs of cabinets, between the stove and the wall, behind the fridge, countertops on slips of thin cardboard. They'll eat and carry it in and on their bodies back to their nests, where they die. Then their cannibal brethren will eat them, and die. Makes for a very effective treatment, I've used it to help friends fix up terrible German roach infestations in a week or two.

The waterbug varieties die to it too, but they're not so much indoor dwelling roaches so they rarely infest clean appearing homes.

Mostly harmless to animals, active ingredient is indoxacarb which is used in some flea drops.

It used to be about $25 with prime shipping from Amazon but it seems that's not the case at the moment. This was the best I could find.

advion 4 Tubes and 4 Plungers Cockroach German Roach Pest Control Insecticide Bait Gel, Kill German, American, Australian, Smoky, Brown https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00730QW70/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_prdsDbEHJXGCS

Invict Gold seems similar, imidacloprid is its main ingredient, same as advantage II flea drops for animals, and at $25 on amazon not bad.
Rockwell Labs - Invict Gold - Cockroach Gel - 4 Tubes https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0049I6CT2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_HldsDbDGN91FC



Note on animal toxicity, these chemicals are safe because they're being spread at low concentrations in small areas, not broadly and widely like with sprays. If your animals seek and consume the roach bait that will not only increase the dose but reduce the effectiveness of your bait. I've never had issues with my cats being interested, but maybe a dog would. Just keep the bait out of reach of them as best you can,

u/anewatrophy · 9 pointsr/AutoDetailing

If you are planning to detail for the long term, I'd suggest investing in some bulk / concentrated products rather than the consumer-grade & Ultimate Meguiar's line.

I've tried to break down the supplies I'd suggest. Of course, don't just throw out your existing supplies. Use them up and then get the concentrates / bulk.

Note: There's no need to get everything in this list. Just get what you need. There's also cheaper alternatives to several of the products, and probably cheaper sites than those in my links. Some of the products I use because I want to support the manufacturer and/or because I trust the manufacturer. Use what you like and use it often. :)

Cheaper than a prechiller is using a cheap submersible pump in a bucket of ice water. You can recirculate or run your hose into the bucket to keep it topped up as you pump your ice water through the chiller.

I brought one home from golfing about a month ago and went to absolute war. CimeXa is all you need to get rid of them if anyone is out there strugglin'. I learned everything I could about these fuckers and used it once and haven't had any issues since.

Thermostat for the UTH (under tank heater)! That's a BIG MUST for a UTH. Temps that are too high can cause burns and neurological issues (aka brain damage). You can get one relatively cheap. The one I use is here iPower Digital Heat Mat Thermostat
Good luck, you choose the right pet!🐍 Hisss!

u/ataraxia has amazing information for ball pythons. You should definitely read it through. Glass tanks are not ideal for Bps, so this should help. Here is her normal dump of information I took from another post.

i'm going to dump a bunch of helpful links on you. the first three links are detailed care sheets, then a tub tutorial, and the rest are product recommendations. read everything thoroughly, come back with any questions.

glass tanks can be very challenging for ball python husbandry due to the high amount of air flow with the screen top and the total lack of insulation with the glass walls. it's generally recommended to use tubs or pvc reptile cages instead. wood enclosures can also be suitable if they're designed well and sealed properly to protect the wood against moisture. glass tanks can work, but they require a lot of modification and maintenance, which you'll find tips for in the second link. i'll give you product recommendations to cover options for tanks, tubs, and pvc/wood enclosures.

  • http://reptimes.com/ball-pythons-the-basics-and-then-some
  • http://reptimes.com/ball-pythons-common-problems
  • http://reptimes.com/ball-pythons-feeding
  • here is a tutorial to give you an example of how to set up a tub. this is what i would recommend for an immediate setup, and you could upgrade to a pvc cage upgrade later. note: this tutorial shows adhesive velcro to attach the thermo/hygro to the tub wall, but you should not do that. tape and other sticky adhesives should never be used inside the enclosure, your snake can get stuck on it and suffer serious injuries. hot glue is the easiest reptile-safe adhesive option. screws or bolts can also be used to mount things on plastic/wood walls.
  • pvc reptile cages are ideal. they have the husbandry benefits of a tub with the aesthetics/visibility of a tank, they're much lighter than wood or glass, and they will remain unaffected by decades of constant high humidity. animal plastics, boamaster, and boaphile plastics, are some popular companies. many people will use a tub for a young snake and upgrade to pvc later.

u/hellobeffy · 7 pointsr/snakes

Home: For the heating pad, you need a thermostat, which will turn it on and off automatically around a specified heat range. Mine is set to 86 degrees with the probe placed between the heat mat and the bottom of the tank. This keeps the glass on top of the tank around 83-85, and the paper towel I have over the glass is around 81-83. You may need to have a different temperature setting, depending on your setup. You shouldn't turn the heat mat entirely off, unless you notice it is malfunctioning and overheating.


To make sure that your temperatures and humidity are decent, you will want a digital thermometer/hygrometer and a temperature gun. The cool side should be in the low-mid 70s and the warm side in the low-mid 80s. The humidity should be 30%-60%. If it isn't, you can make or buy a humid hide, block off some of the venting on the screen top with aluminum foil or acrylic panels, or switch substrates to something that can be misted. This last measure will likely not be necessary unless you live in a low-humidity area.


You should have two identical caves, one on the warm side over the heat mat and one on the cool side.


Diet: What you were told may be appropriate for an adult snake. If possible, weigh her and post pictures. Do a quick Google search on how much adult corns should be eating and how often. I only have a hatchling, and don't want to lead you astray with my lack of adult corn experience.


Handling: If you got her recently enough that you haven't fed her yet, you shouldn't be handling her yet. You should feed her at least once, preferably twice before handling her the first time, and wait 48 hours after feeding to handle her.


Depending on the snake, many can be held multiple times per week. Some are conservative and say only once a week for 15 minutes. Some people allow for more handling than this. But 3-4 times a week for 'extended periods' is almost definitely too much, and as she's new to you, you should be slowly working your way up to longer periods of handling. You also should never be handling her in the 48 hours after she eats.


Shedding: Their color will usually dull and their eyes will turn milky or blue. They might have some minor changes in behavior, like more resistance to handling or possibly even refusal to eat. Mine just shed, and hid for three days prior to that. Note that the shed should come off all in one piece -- if it doesn't, it may be a sign that your snake is dehydrated and doesn't have sufficient access to clean water or the humidity in the tank is too low.


Another quick note on water: You should be changing it at least twice a week, plus any time the snake soils it. I buy filtered spring water from the store, which doesn't have some of the chemicals in tap water that are fine for humans but not so good for snakes. It's kind of a pain in the butt, but it's only about $2 a month, so whatever.

u/Nerochi · 7 pointsr/ballpython

Picture of the setup

Im using a 20 gallon long glass tank with this surrounding the sides and back, its a perfect fit. A day night timer hooked to a non heated light. I dont use heating that sucks the humidity out of the air by using a heat pad for both hides regulated by thermostats one for each pad. Substrate I use is coconut husk, this one lasted me a whole year and people say it wont mold as easily compared to other non coconut fiber substrates. The tank itself uses a screened sliding locked lid. I cant speak for how to lock down other types of lids for tanks. The screen however I covered most of it with 3 layers of foil followed by tape around the edges of the foil to keep it attached and sealed better to the screen. A hole for the non heated light was made and I used a cut up piece of a zipblock bag along with tape to cover over the hole for humidity reasons. Finally the hides are medium sized from reptile basics, I remember when he could easily fit in the small one, was such a tiny noodle and of course a simple plastic water dish big enough to soak in and aid in humidity.

For times when he is in shed though, I lightly spray down the substrate and sides and back of the tank once a day. I think just spraying the glass walls and keeping that large surface area wet is good enough though.

Other items include thermometer, fake plants, gram scale, and one ball python

Looks like a pretty good start there.

Pots: If just doing one plant I used something like this that filled my case perfectly and just wrapped it in aluminum tape

Soil: Fox Farms Ocean Forest is recommended alot around here and you can buy small bags

Nutrients: There is a plethora of nutrients you can use from GO Box to Botanicare to General Hydroponics and many many many many more. With almost as many methods.

Edit: Also case wise that mid tower is going to be too small, you will definately want to go for a full tower. Something like this

Lay it down, just in pea sized amounts on a piece of paper and place it under your sink and/or in the corners of your kitchen. If you have roaches, they will come out and be obliterated within a couple of weeks. I just moved into a new apartment on 145th and I am doing this just a precaution - my last apartment was a 5th floor walkup (im in a 6th floor now) and we ended up getting a small infestation when they started doing construction on the apartment below us.

Sure! They're 10x10inch (11x11?) 45w panels that run off a regular 110 outlet. They do not have an on/off switch, but if I put my plants outside I just unplug them from the timer and there hasn't been a problem. I don't believe these are waterproof so beware if you plan to use on a porch or in a green house.

Hmmm what else.... I have them about 6 inches from the top of most my plants (I actually used my Lola to measure from). The only plant I have propped up closer to the lights is my aeonium kiwi because I want to see if she'll develop the pink outline on her leaves if she's closer. They don't get super hot, but they do get warm, and there has been very little impact on the electric bill (I run them 12 hours a day on a timer). Let me know if you have any more questions I didn't cover!

I like these. The bulbs are replaceable and the plug is a traditional plug (rather than a USB into adapter as many are... those wear out very quickly because the adapters are cheap and don't sit in the socket right, but the lights will blow other adapters). I also like that they're white light. When I had the purple bulbs I lost the ability to enjoy my plants as they naturally are because they were always bathing in ugly magenta light.

Still trying to figure out exactly what your prop is. I had the same exact one. Etoliated it the same way before I learned. I can't find the marker for it. I'll keep my eye out next time I'm at the store.

/u/Dodifer this. Buy some Mosquito Dunk Bits, take about 1/8 of a teaspoon and stir it into 1/2 cup of water really well, spread this on the surface of the surface of the soil of any plants you have indoors near the gnat problem. You can spray it on or brush it on, doesn't really matter as long as you get semi-even surface coverage. Reapply 10 days later if you still need to.

The dunk bits are just dried corn bits coated in BTI, a bacteria that goes after gnat and mosquito larva. There's a lot of safety warnings on the bottle but from the articles I've read from an WHO article BTI should be safe to use in drinking water, so it should be safe to use on indoor plants and vegetables.

u/yoonamaniac · 6 pointsr/houseplants

They lay eggs in the soil, so they multiply rapidly. I used mosquito dunks when watering the plants, and then when the top layer of soil is dry after a couple of days, I sprayed diatomaceous earth - food grade on the soil liberally. The yellow stickies all around the plants caught the ones which somehow miraculously managed to survive. It took about three weeks to not see any flying around.

I don't know if anyone has told you yet, but you really should remove that nasty stick on thermometer thing you have. Not only is it likely not very accurate, it could fall off completely and get stuck to your snake (not very fun).

I'd definitely recommend going with a nice digital hygrometer like this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BO8CUE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's accurate enough for snakes, and it can take ambient temps on both sides of your enclosure and measure humidity.

I have successfully cold-smoked a lot of sausage in a cold smoker made out of a large carboard box. I just sit this thing in a metal tray and light it up. Since it just smoulders, it produces almost no heat. I'll bet you could put this inside an unlit green egg to make a cold smoker.

u/Tremulants · 6 pointsr/nyc

If you have seen a couple, there's an infestation. It may not be bad, but if you're seeing a few roaches during the day, there are going to be many more coming out at night.

Cimexa is generally better than boric acid. It lasts longer, naturally dries itself out, and is less toxic to pets than boric acid. Spray it in the cracks of your walls, baseboards, and under large appliances.

Advion gel bait is highly cited around here to be a godsend in culling live nymphs and adults. Cockroaches are opportunistic eaters; it's better to place several small dots around common walkways (along baseboards & sources of water) than larger, but fewer dollops.

An IGR, like Gentrol, will help with long-term prevention. It prevents nymphs from reaching sexual maturity and can stop eggs from hatching. It doesn't do anything for adults though, so you'll need the Advion to knock those fuckers out.

The most important thing is to change your behaviors. Don't leave trash in the apartment overnight, dry out sinks/sources of water overnight, keep food sealed, etc...

u/LANBoy91386 · 6 pointsr/gardening

Well, you aren't wrong, just a little skewed on the numbers. Peppers, like pretty much any plant, requires 12 to 18 hours of light a day when indoors. for a single pepper plant you may be able to get away with a shop light. This may be in bad taste, but this is a great option. For tomatoes I'd suggest something similar but in 4ft. Professional indoor HID (High Intensity Discharge) setups will run at the multi thousand watt levels, but most people looking for fresh veggies year around can do with far less. It also makes everything like grow/rest hours, heat, humidity, soil nutrient levels, you name it, way easier to manage.

u/Fizzlethe6th · 6 pointsr/vandwellers

I actually just finished going through all of this.

  1. I would recommend going solar. Powering your house batteries from your alternator works, but it puts extra stress on your alternator which means you'll have more repair bills down the road.

    1b) I have 2 vent fans installed in my roof, and it does wonders on a hot night. Set one to blow in, and the other to blow out, and you'll get some great airflow. Humidity is another story though. Even with the two fans humidity can be rough, but at least its something.

  2. As for battery usage for the fans, the ones I linked you to use about 60w, so you are going to want to make sure to buy enough deep cycle batteries to last you however long you sleep. Two 60w fans running for 8 hours is going to be about 960w. I have 4 35 amp-hour deep cycle solar batteries, which give me a total of 1620 watts to play with, so I can run my fans all night, and still have 660w left over to play with in the morning. BUT, seeing as you are looking to also have a fridge, that is going to mean more batteries depending on the kind of fridge you are thinking of using. A fridge like THIS would only use about as much as your vent fans, and would save you money on batteries. Here is a calculator that helped me out when I was trying to figure out my battery bank.

  3. Charging your house batteries off of your alternator only takes about 15 minutes or less for a full charge. Solar might take a few hours, but its less stress on your van in general.

    ​

    If you are worried about solar being too expensive, it really isnt. You can get a full 100 watt solar panel kit for $118. That give you all the wiring, a panel, and a charge controller all at once. Then all you need are batteries, which you can get a set of 4 for $250. You don't need those specifically, but just make sure whatever batteries you get, you make sure they are DEEP CYCLE batteries, and not starter batteries.

    ​

    Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask, and I'll be glad to help. Anything to help another vandweller so they don't have to go through all the hell I did trying to figure it all out myself. lol

u/butterbal1 · 6 pointsr/vandwellers

ok lets start off with correcting your requirements..

Phone 3.24Ah x 3.7v = 12Wh

Laptop = 42 Wh (per spec sheet)

Fan .5Ah x 12v = 6Wh/hour of run time

LEDs 0.8Ah x 4.5v = 3.6Ah (assuming 3 batteries)

With 7 hours of run time on that fan lets call that an even 100Wh/day that you will need to generate which that panel should be able to crank out in about 1 hour of direct sunlight if it was perfect with no loss anywhere so plan for 2 hours and you will be very safe if you never have a cloudy day without charging.



In theory a 20Ah 12v battery will meet your needs based on your stated design with only a 50% discharge. (less if you recharge the laptop while the sun is out)



My suggestions:

Use this panel kit instead https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BFCNFRM/ . Same rated output but the mounting kit saves some headache and gives flexibility on the charger about what kind of batteries it can feed.

For batteries I would highly recommend looking at a pair of 35Ah 6v golf cart batteries run in series.

For lighting just get some 12v LEDs and run the straight off the battery and don't mess around with AAA batteries.


Extra note - Any time you are charging something else there is a voltage change and you are going to lose some energy in the step up/down transformers or inverters that can be as horrible as 20% loss. Just keep this in mind when doing calculations.

Those lights are honestly more novelty than anything else, the third one is the least-bad of the 3 but it's kind of a waste to spend $27 on four 5W bulbs that also need fixtures when a 130W panel with the same purple LEDs costs $70.

For a tent that small, I think you'd be better off with an HLG 100 v2 3000k (the same light is available at Amazon). The Viparspectra light is cheaper, but that's about the only thing it has going for it.

I don't have that light, but I use the next size up (an HLG QB288v2 3000k) in my 2x2x5.5' tent, and I've been very happy with it. I had a Viparspcetra 450W, but it stopped working after 10 days so I returned it. The QBs seem significantly better made, have a better light spectrum (and the purple light felt very harsh to my eyes), and only use like 2/3 as much electricity for similar amounts of usable light.

Also, the white light spectrum from the QB lights means that you can use a cheap lux meter to get your light position dialed in. That won't work with the purple light spectrum, you'd need a much more expensive PAR meter.

If you're growing in a tiny space, r/SpaceBuckets also has good info about light, airflow, and so on.

Without a doubt it is my Counterpressure Bottle Filler. I hate bottling, and almost exclusively Keg these days. However, sometimes A beer turns out so well I want to either save a couple bottles for later, or bring it to people who won't be drinking it quickly enough for a growler to be reasonable. Option one was to bottle while kegging and bottle condition. The problems with this involve A) Not knowing if your beer is great yet, possibly wasting time. B) Having to clean the bottles and bottling equipment along with kegging equipment, adding time. C) Having trube build up during bottle conditioning, contributing to off flavors for long aging. D) unavoidable high DO / Oxygen levels in the bottles, also causing oxidization and other off flavors after long periods of sitting. The counter pressure filler allows me to bottle beers directly from a carbonated keg. The bottles are cold and carbonated immediately. But more importantly, allowing you to cap on foam like at most craft breweries, you can insure very low DO levels. Combined with the lack of trub, your bottles are likely to age very well for archival purposes. And for people asking, whats the best reason to save a good beer? Well, if you are trying to perfect a recipe, being able to sample the last several batches with your current one together really helps point out what your method changes do to your beer quality.


Another important purchase from the last few months is a combo of these two items: Faucet line Jumper and Submersible Pump. I use these in combination to clean my beer lines. I have a twin faucet tower kegerator. I keep two kegs on, and when they both cash, i clean my lines. I disconnect the line from my first keg, and attach it to this submersible pump, which is sitting in a gallon of caustic liquid line cleaner (from five star, but PBW would work too). I use the Faucet jumper to connect the ends of both faucets, and I disconnect the line from keg 2, and have it dump back into the bucket. What i have created is a recirculation that I let run for 30 minutes. It doesn't need to be supervised. This is so much better than how I used to do it, which was using a squeeze bottle and doing one faucet at a time. It took forever, and required me to be there. This new solution allows me to walk away and let it do its thing. Furthermore, I also use this time to defrost my kegerator if it needs it.


Edit: I would like to add that I think this might be the most interesting and useful post on this sub in a long time, good job OP. I have spent quite a lot of time googling other peoples purchases, some I haven't heard of, and am planning some purchases.

u/toolatealreadyfapped · 5 pointsr/Homebrewing

You're in luck. I bought the 396gph ecoplus pump just a few weeks ago, for exactly the same purpose. It's been used twice now with my immersion chiller, and has the perfect flow rate.

In Houston, ground water is over 80 degrees right now. An IC simply can't get things below 100. So I run regular hose water through until I get below 110 (about 8 minutes if I keep the wort constantly moving). Then I switch the hookup to that pump sitting in ice water, and another 8 - 10 minutes gets me to 70 degrees. Best $22 spent.

Notes:

1- The pump has a 1/2 inch female output, and a handful of different size hose barbs, none of which are useful. I went to a hardware store, and got a connector to go from that to a male hose receiver for a few dollars.

2- Yes, you could use this to save water by recirculating. However, as your source water heats up, you get less efficient. (Unless you had like a swimming pool or something to draw from)

3- It works fine lifting from ground level, but it works even better if you can raise it to an even level. I have my kettle on the propane burner, so my ice chest (with water and pump inside) sits on a chair.

4- If you can avoid it, don't waste your money on corner store ice. It's insanely over-priced. There's a "Twice the Ice" vendor by my house that sells 20lbs for $1.75. This suffices for the day.

Ok. he needs a basking spot of 85f in order to digest properly. His cool side temps should be between 70-75F. He should have two snug fitting hides, one on each end, and a decent sized water dish. Aspen is the best bedding for them. Amazon has a reallly good digital thermometer/hygrometer combo that I use in all my tanks, it's this one. does the tank have any sort of heating at all?

For veg/clones you should be using 6500k lights or T5 lights, not 2700k. 2700k is for flowering.

That soil says "feeds up to 4 months". In general, you don't want soil with built-in fertilizer. Get the FF soil and some perlite. You're going to want 25-40% of the mix to be perlite.

Don't use Miracle Grow. Go with Fox Farms Trio or GH GO Box. If you really want to save money on nutes (you don't), grab some fish fertilizer ($8 at Home Depot) for veg and Morebloom ($6 at Home Depot) for flowering. If you go with the cheap nutrient options, it'll show, but it's better than nothing.


HID isn't complicated. You don't need to be smart to set it up. A system like this comes with everything you need. Any real light system (including LED) is going to require ventilation (inline fan and duct).

Good luck! Keep us updated.

When we moved into our condo we had a slight issue with roaches, i think from an adjacent unoccupied unit. Saw a half dozen or so first week.

We put this stuff all around inside and outside our building. Killed almost all of them. Reapplied in a few months and didn't see another one again for over a year.

Every few years now if we see even one in the spring/summer, we reapply and never have real issues.

u/manaworkin · 5 pointsr/smoking

I straight up love my masterbuilt electric smoker. I started with a drum grill, moved up to a water smoker and finally upgraded to a masterbuilt 40. I gotta say, I'm never going back. I mean there's a certain primal enjoyment that comes from charcoal but electric is so much easier and more precise. No dumping ash everywhere, no wearing a thick cloud of smoke every time I tend to it, warms up quickly, the built in meat thermometer is great for larger items, the remote with temp and time display comes in handy, the insane amount of room for food (seriously I can fit like two turkeys in there and still have room for ribs). Lets not forget cleanup, stainless steel racks and water tray that can go straight from smoker to dishwasher. And should you ever feel that you don't get the smoke you want, they make sweet little pellet trays that fit right next to the heating element.

u/bedbugsugh · 5 pointsr/Bedbugs

Okay, I'm going to try and keep it manageable.

If you live in an apartment, you need to tell the super if only because you risk them going into other places and reinfesting.

There are kits you can buy, though just be sure anything you buy also has a sprayer of some kind if it's mixed

If a kit doesn't have encasements you should order those on amazon.

That said, here are some steps:

Wash and machine dry everything you own, and put them in these or these. Don't be stingy on this, buy 2-3 of them. Make outfits for work and home and organize them bag by bag. Lets call this 25 dollars.

Do this with your linens, pillow cases, and pillows. If your bedsheets are not light colored and plain, then buy some light colored plain ones. White is good, a little off white is best as nymphs can appear white if they haven't eaten, eggs too. Wash your linens every 4 days or so.

Buy mattress encasements for your bed AND your box spring. Measure both to make sure you don't buy one that's too big, the snugger the fit the better. Do not go too cheap on this, look at the reviews. A good one will have not only a zipper but a folding flap to secure it. Lets call this 60 bucks. Once on, never remove the encasement without a PCO telling you to. Do not try to make your own, it never works out well. Important note, do NOT under any circumstance have any kind of bed skirt or blanket that's so large it touches the floor easily. You're going to want to make it so the bugs have to crawl up the legs so they die on the cimexa.

If you do not have an iron/steel bed frame, I recommend getting the cheapest one you can find.

Clean everything off the floor, make sure no furniture is touching any other furniture or the wall. If you can't do that, you need to lose some stuff. Believe me it's worth it.

Vacuum daily if you can, and immediately toss out whatever you vacuum up in whatever trash is outside. Do not keep it inside. I wouldn't recommend vacuuming less than every other day. Vacuum early in the morning if at all possible.

Buy interceptors. These babies are pricey unfortunately. but a 12 pack should be good for a bed and something else. That's about 40. Make sure whatever bed post you have will fit in them, they're not the widest.

Buy two cans of bedlam plus. Spray it along each joint and crevice in all the furniture after you've emptied it out. Do not use over the counter sprays, they're almost always things bed bugs are already resistant to.

Buy two bottles of Cimexa and a bellows. Apply the cimexa on the perimeter of every piece of furniture that is on the floor as well as along the wall of the room. Unscrew every outlet and switch cover and put it there as well. Don't go overboard, less is more. This will be about 40 total for the set. I recommend spraying the legs of your chairs. Make sure to cover your face while you're doing this. Cimexa will kill them if they crawl over it, however if it's clumped up in big piles they'll walk around it because they don't like it.

Do NOT switch where you sleep. They'll follow you and spread to other parts of where you live. You're live bait. It sucks, but having them come to where you're sleeping is the best way to kill them. You want them feeling safe and secure as they walk over the poisons and cimexa you've laid out.

You'll be living out of bags for a long long time, so get used to it. I recommend scheduling something you enjoy every week to keep your sanity and have something to look forward to.

Whatever you do, do NOT buy a bed bug bomb. It will scatter them and make them harder to clear.

Nothing goes on the bed unless it's sterile, and nothing leaves the bed without being washed and dried ASAP.

I'm not OP but I have a similar setup in my apartment. It's not as nice as OPs but it's working well for me.

I have a floating shelf with a 2 ft T5 light hung above it on an electrical timer. It's hard to see in my picture but it's quite bright. I think it looks pretty nice and allows me to keep a small collection on display (I have the shelf right at eye level).

Aside from the issue I'm having now, it has worked great, especially for the price.

I had a similar idea a while ago and the general consensus is that a solar generator, while it seems practical, isn't much more simple than a DIY solar set up, but it is much more expensive.

Heres a simple list I could find that'll give you the same wattage (someone correct me if I'm wrong with this, I'm no electrician):

$185 [100w panel (comes with mounts for your roof)] (http://www.amazon.com/Renogy-100W-Mono-Starter-Kit/dp/B00BFCNFRM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1421722028&sr=8-1&keywords=100w+solar+panel)


$189 [Inverter] (http://www.amazon.com/Cobra-2575-2500-Power-Inverter/dp/B00126K8DA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1421722161&sr=8-3&keywords=5000w+inverter) (the gene you linked is a bit sneaky, saying 5k watts, but thats the peak, not the continuous, so this inveter is the same wattage). Also, the generator produces a modified sine wave. This means the inveter isn't suitable for things like lighting and (so i've heard) isn't good for expensive electronics, [you can do some research on the difference between pure and modified] (http://www.civicsolar.com/resource/pure-sine-vs-modified-sine-wave-inverters). The one I've linked is pure and good for any electronics.

$183 [100 AH sealed AGM deep cycle battery] (http://www.solar-electric.com/batteries-meters-accessories/batteries/unba/unba100amagm.html)

$100 for the extra wire you'll need. You have to get wire for the charge controller to the battery, then from the battery to the inveter, so not too much. The $100 is probably much more than you need.

So in total, thats ~$660 for the same power. You could toss the components into a box and seal it up and make your own generator if you really want to.


Just to add, I thought it'd be cool to see what I could do with the $1000+ the gene costs. For just ~$150 more, you could more than double the system with [these panels] (http://www.amazon.com/Renogy-Solar-Panel-Bundle-200Watt/dp/B00B8L8MD2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1421722532&sr=8-1&keywords=200w+solar+panel), [this inverter] (http://www.amazon.com/Power-Bright-PW6000-12-Inverter-6000/dp/B002EA22YQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1421722161&sr=8-1&keywords=5000w+inverter), and [this battery] (http://www.solar-electric.com/batteries-meters-accessories/batteries/unba/unba200amagm.html).

>Two of these?

u/PartTimeDiurnal · 4 pointsr/snakes

Great! Looking forward to seeing your new buddy. :)

So, carpet pythons are a tropical species, and as such do require specific temperature ranges and humidity levels. Ideally, it should be about 33c on the warm side, and 22c on the cool side. Normally, people control temperature with thermostats. You put the temperature probe above the heater, inside the warm side's hide, and set the temperature you want it to maintain. Bam - instant temperature control!

The next thing you'll want to do is invest in a digital thermometer and hygrometer combo, ideally something with probes that you can place around the vivarium. This will let you double check temps and humidity around the viv. Long term, the thermostat can measure the warm side and your thermometer/hygrometer can measure it on the cool side.

For humidity, you should be aiming for like 50% - 80%. The hygrometer part of your thermometer/hygrometer measures the humidity level. Grab yourself a spray bottle, fill it with water, and give the viv a good misting when humidity levels get too low.

I'd recommend googling "carpet python care" and reading the entire first page of results. There's a lot of great information from a number of knowledgeable keepers there, and it'll help you figure out which suggestions are actually good, and which ones don't make sense.

Do you mind if I ask what country you live in? Sounds like it probably isn't the US (where I'm from)

u/earthwormjim91 · 4 pointsr/snakes

Humidity should be fine for a corn. The heat mat is most likely the issue.

You should have it on an actual thermostat that will regulate it. Off and on doesn't do any good if it still reaches high temps since it only takes a few minutes for a heat mat to heat up to full temp, which can easily be 110-115 or more. Anything over 105 can cause permanent nerve and brain damage due to them not being able to self regulate their body heat. If you turn it off for 15 minutes 6 times a day, that's still 22.5 hours at full temp.

You also need to measure the actual floor, and not just the substrate. If you have an IR thermometer, move the substrate aside and actually measure the temp of the tank surface. Corn snakes will burrow and if you only measure away from the heat mat you'll never get an accurate temp of what the snake could be laying against if it burrows down to it.

There are absolutely FAR better thermostats than this one, but this is not a terrible one to get and dirt cheap. I hot glue the probe to the floor over the hottest part of the heat mat.

If you're getting serious about keeping plants indoors you might want to invest is some LED lighting.

They are not powerful at all, they meet none of the standards that people recommend. But I’ll be darn if they don’t work just fine. You have to have the light within inches of the plant. I mostly wanted something to prevent stretching since I’m in Ohio and we have very dark days ahead of us. But to my surprise they brought out some cool colors that I hadn’t achieved even after months of being in the sunniest window. I have them hanging under a desk and the plants are on the floor.

It looks desperate for more light, maybe get a light for it like this https://smile.amazon.com/Relassy-Spectrum-Gooseneck-Replaceable-Professional/dp/B07C68N7PC and keep it on it for 8+ hours a day.

u/PMme_slave_leia_pics · 4 pointsr/microgrowery

Ok well scrog isn’t about height. It’s about square footage.
For example I can get more out of two plants Scogged at about 2 feet high in my 4 x 4 x 7 foot tent than I could out of 4 tall plants.

It’s about using the “footprint” of the light in the most efficient way.

With tall plants you lose that efficiency. Basically the top of the plant is going to get that sweet light and the bottom is not. So further your plant gets from the sweet spot then the less yield you will eventually pull, especially from the bottom of the plant.

Now one way you could circumvent that is placing lights all around the plants. I just saw a cabinet grow with a sort of vertical scrog.
In one of the weed subs. Maybe someone else can chime in here. But they essentially grew around a vertical screen with led strips surrounding the plants.

But in the end the yield wasn’t great.

But you could essentially grow tall skinny plants with a surround of led strips and an led topper.

Personally I say kiss. Keep it simple stupid.

I scrog. I like scrog I get about 6 ounces per plant per harvest so 12 ounces total out of my 4 x 4
It’s the best method I’ve found after dozens of grows and experiments.

I do not recommend blurple amazon leds. At the very least I recommend hps/mh lamps (that use a lot of power and give off a lot of heat so you need a good exhaust)

If you’re going to go led then start with quantum boards or cobs. Like someone else said they at least have resale value if you decide to stop growing. You can’t get $5 for an amazon blurple I promise you. I tried to sell mine on Craigslist for months in a legal state.

They’ll last years and in the end they’ll cost you less money in electricity. But you’re gonna pay more up front.

this is not much more than a blurple and is good for a 2 x 2 foot space.

Money far better spent than $100 blurple. Better yield better light.

If you want to see what I mean about scrogging, check out my grows on grow dairies

Check out a lot of grow styles and methods.

Read growweedeasy.com back to front. Then start over. Read it again. And again. Then again. And then again.

Then reference it during your grow.

Once you decide your grow method. Then pick lights to fit.

Good luck.

u/medicinalcoma · 4 pointsr/microgrowery

I'd suggest skipping the Mars 300w and saving your money to invest in a Quantum Board LED kit, these 100w kits are $150 on Amazon.

The LED tech in those Mars LEDs are outdated, the Mars 300 would be equivalent to about <~140w draw while outputting 150w HID, whereas this QB kit is closer to true 200w HID output at 96w draw. Compare the QB's lumen output of 15,000+ to the Mars' < 5,000.

u/lapagecp · 4 pointsr/snakes

Ok I will give tips in the order you presented the info.

>40 gallon tank.

This could be a bit on the large side for your snake so I would start by blacking out the back and sides. You can do this with construction paper, foamcore board, or spray paint if you have someplace else for the snake to live for at least a few days. Pet stores usually sell a scenery backer meant for this. Doing this will make the snake feel less out in the open and thus safer.

>Aspen bedding

I get my aspen bedding from tractor supply in a big bail. You might consider trying coco husk which will help with keeping humidity up.

> 1 hide

I would have 2 identical tight fitting hides (This is how tight they should be)so that your snake can thermo regulate without prioritizing safety.

> 2 branches

Make sure these are secure and won't fall over.

> and a sugar skull for design

Cool.

>Have a UTH because ive heard those are best forglass tanks.

These are great for many setups but you should have temperature controlled. I recommend a thermostat. Here is a cheap one. You should place the probe on the inside against the glass or you can place it under the UTH if you have an infared thermometer to check your glass temp. remember to point the these thermometer directly at the glass from the top straight down. You must shoot perpendicular to the surface you are measuring.

> Havent fed him yet because he was fed before I bought him.

That's good. I would give him a week and offer a rat that is 10% of the snakes weight. If the snake will eat frozen thawed I recommend that. I would feed every 7 to 10 days at that size. I would thaw the rodent in hot (not boiling) water in a ziplock bag until you are sure the rodent is thawed in the center. The ziplock bag is to keep the rodent dry so you can feed in your snakes enclosure. You don't want substrate to stick to the rodent and it will be fine if its dry and you supervise the feeding.

> Whats a good way to control humidity?? Having a hard time keeping it steady.

Try covering most of the screen top. You don't need that much ventilation as your snake won't be soiling its bedding regularly. You will spot clean any problems and so you can get away with much less airflow then with rodents. Here is a tutorial if you want to do it up nice. Adjust how much ventilation you have until you get the right humidity. On that note I like this for a thermostat/hygrometer.

>And should I have a heat lamp ?

I would not use a heat lamp unless you need it to keep a warm side of 90F under the hide and an ambient temp of 80F. A heat lamp will suck humidity out of the air.

It's great that you care about the dogs and want to make their lives better. How about buying a new dog house, if it wouldn't be overstepping your bounds? You might ask the dog owners in a sweet way whether you can do this for them as a gift. Also, be sure to extend your compassion to the mice. Compassion should be based on what a being experiences, not how cute it is. Besides that, poisons can make their way into the dogs' systems, and cause environmental havoc, etc., etc.
Here's where you can buy some cheap, reusable, humane mouse traps, and a relatively cheap but nice and large dog house (unsure about the size of the dogs we're talking about)

Acurite brand thermometers are a good option, especially this one. I would also advise getting an IR temp gun for spot checking. I take it you decided not to go with belly heat for now, so probe placement is going to be: probe attached directly to the basking spot (whatever that may be), body of the thermometer on the cool side. That's how my boa is setup as well.

Did more research on solar power. I live in an apartment now, but I am thinking about buiding a kit to experiment with. Possibly with this kit to start with.

u/steezburgers · 3 pointsr/vandwellers

The most recommended setup I see from other vandwellers in Renogy. They make pretty much everything you need, and it's competitively priced.
You can buy a kit and have almost everything you need but a battery or you can build from scratch. The big components are deep cycle battery, panel, charge controller. There are obviously lots of other smaller things you'll need as well such as fuses, wires, mounting brackets, etc.

This option is much more cost efficient but also requires a good working knowledge of electrical setups (or the desire to learn them) in order to do it safely.

u/a8ksh4 · 3 pointsr/Camper

If you're going to drive a lot each day, then you can charge it using the vehicle alternator by attaching it in parallel with the vehicle battery, but you should use a switch to make sure it's only connected when the vehicle is running (charging) so you don't drain your vehicle battery running electronics in the camper. Many trailer harnesses can't provide enough power for charging like this, so you'd likely need to run your own wire from the vehicle battery.

If you don't drive a lot, you'd probably want a solar panel. Again, this is one where you want to look at how much power each of your electronics are using and estimate how many panels you'd need to keep up with your usage throughout the day and battery size to get you through the night. E.g. you could use a panel and charge controller like this: https://www.amazon.com/Renogy-Monocrystalline-Negative-Controller-Connectors/dp/B00BFCNFRM/

Or if you're going to be parked somewhere with a power plug, just use an auto battery charger to keep your battery topped up.

u/sam_fujiyama · 3 pointsr/DIY

It's just one 100W panel at the moment propped up in the field about 70' from the cabin, it came with a 20' run of the cable and i bought another 50' extension. I've found a good spot for half the year, and then have to move it to another spot for the other half to get decent charging. This is the starter kit i got: http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00BFCNFRM/

I ended up replacing the PWM charge controller with an MPPT which performs much better under lower light conditions, made a huge difference with charging.

Sure thing!

I'm using 2 Viparspectra 450w LEDs which equal about ~500w true watt output.

I've got 2 small vornado fans running, 1 above and 1 below the scrog net.

I have a 5 gallon bucket with an AWS-10 automatic watering system hooked up to it. Was pumping about 0.25 gallons of water per plant per day in veg, now it's at ~0.32 gallons per plant per day in flower.

Also got a small exhaust going, but the LEDs don't give off that much heat, so could have done w/out it.

u/jupiter15937 · 3 pointsr/leopardgeckos
u/ClaryFey · 3 pointsr/leopardgeckos

Put it on the bottom, just make sure you have a thermostat like this one, with the probe wherever the gecko will be laying above the heating pad. If you use reptile carpet, put it on top of the reptile carpet. Paper towel? On top of the paper towel. Your gecko will be fine as long as you haven't bent the heating pad and it doesn't have any defects. The thermostat would prevent that area from going over temp anyways.

u/KimberelyG · 3 pointsr/snakes

You've got good advice already - thermostat to safely regulate the cage heat (a cheap one like this works), a cool side hide, a warm side hide, lots of clutter (wood, fake plants, etc.) around the cage so your snake can feel securely "hidden" even while not in a hide, and a hygrometer & thermometer (like this one) so you can keep an eye on the cage temperature and humidity. <- (proper humidity is important for ball pythons so they can shed well and so they don't get dehydrated)

For a retained eyecap you can try the old warm-damp-towel-in-a-pillowcase trick: wet a towel with warm water, squeeze it out so it's not sopping wet, drop it in a pillowcase, add your snake, tie closed, and let your snake slither around in there for 15-30 minutes or so. The warmth, moisture, and gentle friction from the towel can loosen stuck shed.

Edit: fixed the links.

This is the one I use cuz I'm a cheapskate. Full spectrum is a lot better for actual viewing/ photography tho. I think it's about 6 inches from the plants and on for about 12-14 hours. I would check out the overwinter megathread under the about tab for r/succulents for grow light into tho. They are way more helpful :)

u/CptNasty · 3 pointsr/SavageGarden

I don't think any LED would do and unfortunately the ones I ordered a year ago are no longer available. But I bet you get better bang for your buck now.

I'd be happy to offer a couple humble suggestions if you can answer a couple questions.

Are you fine with the light being purple, or would you rather have white light shining on them? I went with red/blue LEDs but now I kind of wish I had gone with fluorescent lighting to better enjoy my plant's natural beauty.

I'm thinking about expanding my grow area and I'm seriously considering going with fluorescent and putting my "prize" plants there and using the LEDs for cultivation.


TL;DR- You can compare something like this to this

First is $19 and could probably do the job for a couple plants. Second is on sale for $29 and could probably do 3-4 times the area but I'm bad at math.

I don't necesarilly recommend those models specifically, but with the links others have provided and these examples that should give you something of an idea of where to start comparing.

u/CaptnIgnit · 3 pointsr/Bonsai

South facing windows don't provide even light, you need to rotate the tree to keep them from leaning too heavily. This means they don't get as much light as if they were outside. This means health will be compromised over time.

Grow lights of sufficient power are not ridiculously cheap. I have this one and this one. The first I use for seedlings as it isn't powerful enough to provide enough light to developed tree. The second I use seasonally if it gets too cold as I don't have room for a greenhouse.

You may be able to find cheaper used equipment, especially older stuff like CCFLs and MH/HPS. But those have a whole host of problems from heat management to spectrum and intensity issues.

Depending on where you keep the light, you may also need to worry about temperature and humidity. I use a small grow tent to help control both temp and humidity, but this also adds additional expense.

All this, just to mimic conditions that are generally readily available outside.

> Never said it was just as viable either but to deny like everyone preaches in this sub, it is what then?

You originally said

> you will come across many people who have grown years or decades indoor. It's an elitist opinion that it can only be outdoor.

This presents a view of indoor and outdoor as a choice of little consequence. aka they are equally viable.

> Moreover, stop referencing horticulturists unless you can quote one chiming in on the topic of bonsai, else that's just talk.

fine, here's a bonsai professional with a degree in horticulture:

u/Parcequehomard · 3 pointsr/orchids

What will you be putting in there? If it's mostly high light species you probably don't want to cheap out too much on light, but if you have a mix or mostly intermediate to low light you can probably get away with cheaper and fewer fixtures.

I have a few of these led panels, which are strong enough to tan a cattleya at a close range and could also cover a very wide area at a further distance for lower light plants. My oldest ones have been running daily for a little over a year and no issues so far, so hopefully they'll last a good long time. You could probably use one of these on each side at an angle so that the front of each shelf gets some direct light and arrange your plants closest by ordered of light requirements.

I also have some areas where I supplement light with a setup of cords---socket splitters---and smaller sized grow bulbs that I can swivel to target a wider or narrower area.

One more tip that I haven't tried with orchids but might be worth a shot in a setup like this, you could line the walls with foil or something reflective to help bounce light to the back sides of the shelves and have less spillover "going to waste". I've only ever done this with seedlings for my garden but it seemed to help.

u/Akilos01 · 3 pointsr/microgrowery

This is from 6 plants. Initially grown indoors but put outdoor to flower, rainy fall made for quite a bit of bud rot. I’d say about a quarter of the yield was lost. The light I use is the Phlizon 600W LED Plant Grow Light. I think two of them may be overkill for a 4x4 but can’t hurt.

I start them off in DWC, create a nebula manifold and once the root system is sufficiently large I transfer them to a mix of my own compost, along with topsoil and mulch. 7 gal pots.

I have another group (genetic clones of the ones jarred) that is still under grow the lights, going to yield much larger than the outdoor even without considering grow lights.

I hate the purple glare of most LED grow lights, to me it ruins the aesthetic of my pretty plants. I think that far north, being too close to the window might be a little risky depending on the plant, some are cold tolerant, some are not.

They're pretty small and easy to move around lol I'll shove plants in every single nook and cranny possible and these are perfect for that.

BTI is a bacteria that is harmless to humans, animals, and plants but that kills mosquito and fungas gnat larva. I ended up with a bad fungus gnat infestation and other remedies were not helping. This is the only stuff that's helped. you sprinkle the pellets on the soil in the pots and water normally. I'm not sure what other mites or larva you could have. It sounds like fungus gnats though. They look similar to fruit flies but don't have any red on them. The gnats are harmless but the larva in the soil sometime eat the roots. Plus they're just kinda unsanitary. I hate them, it didn't take long for them to get out of control.

Reposting the famous u/ _ataraxia info:

Glass tanks can be very challenging for ball python husbandry due to the high amount of air flow with the screen top and the total lack of insulation with the glass walls. It's generally recommended to use tubs or pvc reptile cages instead. wood enclosures can also be suitable if they're designed well and sealed properly to protect the wood against moisture. glass tanks can work, but they require a lot of modification and maintenance, which you'll find tips for in the second link. i'll give you product recommendations to cover options for tanks, tubs, and pvc/wood enclosures.

  • the basics and then some
  • common problems
  • feeding problems
  • here is a tutorial to give you an example of how to set up a tub. this is what i would recommend for an immediate setup, and you could upgrade to a pvc cage upgrade later. note: this tutorial shows adhesive velcro to attach the thermo/hygro to the tub wall, but you should not do that. tape and other sticky adhesives should never be used inside the enclosure, your snake can get stuck on it and suffer serious injuries. hot glue is the easiest reptile-safe adhesive option. screws or bolts can also be used to mount things on plastic/wood walls.
  • pvc reptile cages are ideal. They have the husbandry benefits of a tub with the aesthetics/visibility of a tank, they're much lighter than wood or glass, and they will remain unaffected by decades of constant high humidity. animal plastics, boamaster, and boaphile plastics, are some popular companies. many people will use a tub for a young snake and upgrade to pvc later.
  • spyder robotics makes high quality thermostats to regulate your heat sources with pulse/proportional temperature control and various safety features. this is a popular cheap thermostat with simple on/off style with zero safety features. inkbird thermostats are also low-cost but overall higher quality than the hydrofarm type. any heat source should be regulated by a thermostat to ensure safe and appropriate temperatures.
  • heat tape or ultratherm heat pads are high quality and affordable under tank heater [UTH] options. this is a suitable heat source for most enclosure types. remember that a UTH will not provide ambient heat, it will only affect the temperature of the surface to which it is attached.
  • a porcelain base lamp and ceramic heat emitter [CHE] is the best ambient heat source for a tank, and it will also work for some pvc/wood enclosures. any heat lamp that emits light, even red or blue, should not be used at night.
  • a radiant heat panel [RHP] is the best ambient heat source in a pvc/wood enclosure. there are a few options, such as reptile basics and pro products.
  • a digital dual sensor thermometer/hygrometer allows you to easily monitor the warm side floor temperature [with the probe] as well as the ambient temperature and humidity [with the main unit].
  • an infrared thermometer allows you to spot-check surface temperatures anywhere in the enclosure.
  • these hide boxes are a cheap simple hide with a design that offers the best sense of security for your snake. cave style hides, cardboard boxes, plastic food containers, etc, can also be used. half logs are not appropriate hides.

  • Go Box Plant Nutrients. This should last you several grows.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004PS4B08

  • Seed of your choice (let's say $10).

    So for about $420 (heh), you can get your foot in the door and start growing. This is a nice setup too, you can probably save $100 by shopping around, buying used, or doing-it-yourself. I've left off a few odds and ends like dryer duct, Fiskers for trimming, weed fabric pins for low-stress training, pitcher for watering, Mason jars for storage, but you can likely find those or suitable replacements around the house without spending money.

    I also have a Raspberry Pi 3 ($43) with Sense Hat ($37) and metal case ($15) in each of my grow tents to log temperature/humidity and other things. I'm interested in eventually using the GPIO functionality to water my plants too. Not critical, but definitely a nice thing to have, especially if you're the hacker type. If you go this route, you might look at raspiviv.com too.

    I'm glad I bought a good intro setup because I still use it now that I've upgraded. I now have a 3' x 3' GG Shorty tent with HLG 300 LED for flower, a 2' x 2.5' GG Shorty tent with two 400W Roleadro COB's for veg, and my "intro package" is now my germination/cloning tent (and drying tent too since several people suggested that too). Being able to have three tents (germination -> veg -> flower) working simultaneously is increasing my output quite sharply. I'm doing this to help a relative with cancer, so you may not need to go quite as crazy as I did.

    You mentioned using 35+ gs (~1.25 oz) a month. You probably aren't going to be able to grow that much given the constraints of tent size and light wattage (plus being a first-time grower! You'll learn a lot!). So once you get used to it, you'll probably want to buy more stuff. Marijuana isn't addictive, but growing marijuana absolutely is.

    Once you've got your hardware, the variable cost is seed (~$10), soil (~$5), nutrients (~$20), and electricity (~$30). From that, I'm going to estimate you can grow ~1.5 ozs (you can do more as you learn more though). So you're looking at ~$40/oz after you've made the initial hardware investment.

    Hope this helps. Depression, cancer, and everything else can just go suck it.

The problem with all-in-one fertilizers is that they are usually too high in nitrogen for late flowering. I would use, at a minimum, two nutrient types, one nutrient type for veg, then another for flower that is lower in nitrogen and higher in pk. It's useful to have multiple fertilizers to help pinpoint your plants exact needs as well. I've used the GH GO Box then switched to their Flora Series and also bought some diamond nectar as well (because the GO BOX nutes aren't all suitable for coco)


Humic acid does wonders for soil and soilless applications. The GO box comes with Diamond Black which is humic acid for soil.

I would recommend the GO Box for anyone wanting to use 'organic' fertilizers (disclaimer: might not be considered ''organic' by everyone's definition of 'organic'), which, according to GH, don't have to be PH adjusted. But I use the Flora series now and love it, but it is a chemical fert and needs to be PH adjusted before feeding.

pellet grills just dont' generate the raw smoke that stick or charcoal does, that's the trade off for being able to walk away for 12 hours.

You'd think the frequency you're getting bit, that you'd see one somewhere by now.. kinda sounds like there's a few fleas still lingering. My brother had a flea issue and bought this trap and said it started catching fleas within 15 min. Can't hurt to get one or 2 to use in the rooms you're noticing bites in.

He was also dealing with a bedbug problem at the time and used this CimeXa Powder and it helped a ton also. He used a 1" angled paint brush to apply the powder to the cracks and crevices and a powder duster to dust larger areas.

u/Gary__Niger · 3 pointsr/Bedbugs

Oh boy. That's a blessing and a curse, I suppose - there is still action you can take to prevent a home infestation.

The best way to prevent bringing them home is heat. Immediately take pretty much any article of clothing you think might have come into contact with him (or any others), head on over to the nearest industrial laundromat, and toss your stuff into the largest dryer they have and let it run on high for a long time. Also, DON'T take your suitcase into your car with you. Put all of your clothes in plastic trash bags first, and tie them. Assume that your suitcase has been infiltrated, so placing it in your car could release them in there.


Periodically, once you get home, go do a thorough search of your bedroom. The first thing to look for are dark stains on your mattress. These are usually blood stains (since bedbugs are easily squished if you roll over). Also, check every crack & crevice on the mattress for small black objects like these, which are bedbug p00p. Also, keep an eye out for any shed skin remnants which'll look translucent like those.

If you do have any of those visible signs on your mattress, you'll need to call an exterminator. Seriously, it's pretty much impossible to deal with an infestation by yourself since they hide EVERYWHERE. Including in your walls.

Also, please inform your college's residential services department. They're liable for this sort of stuff.

If you'd like an additional safety measure, just to be safe, get some of this stuff and apply it to your bedframe at home. It's kinda like post exposure prophylaxis to ensure that none have the opportunity to set up shop once you get home should they still successfully hitchhike. It's a desiccating agent that isn't toxic to you.

u/Hoosier_816 · 3 pointsr/legaladvice

Buy some silica gel (https://www.amazon.com/CimeXa-Insecticide-ounces-bottle-Rockwell/dp/B0085HRWI8) right now and just coat the entire apartment with it. Leave it as long as you can completely sealed.

It will kill any bugs in there. Check cracks in walls and corners, in between floor boards, behind appliances. Just buy like 2-3 bottles at least and just douse the entire place.

u/Jah348 · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

I have the grow box myself and it's done very well in my opinion. It gives the schedule all the way through the veg and flower. You can adjust the dosages to your liking as you begin to notice the habits of the plants you're growing. For instance I just set mine to flower and I'm feeding twice a week instead of once right now; white widow seems to love it.

I would also suggest getting a ph kit. You should be able to see one on the frequently purchased together listing thing on this Amazon page. Just a PH up and down bottle with small test kit dropper thing.

Honestly, you need to get on a forum such as rollitup and start reading the stickies at the top of each section until you have a better understanding. Read, Read, Read and read some more. Are you doing this for fun? Dropping a seed in soil to see if it sprouts? Or are you serious and really wanna grow some bud. If its the second option than lets be logical. How much bud do you think you could get off a plant that's growing in a small cup? I know some people start their seedlings in solo cups but from the pics it looks like your trying to do the entire grow in the solo cup. Man, there are just way too many bases to cover here but please do not give up. Keep growing the plants you have while you do more research from an informational dense place such as what I mentioned above. Just to touch on some bases you gotta get those plants out of those solo cups and into larger containers. You need A Lot more light (cfl's by the pic) and get them within 3 inches of the light or they will keep stretching the way they are. I wouldn't even expect much off those plants either. Just apply everything you learned from this grow and from your research to your next and hopefully it will be more successful. Here is a good complete line of nutrients for someone starting out and it should give you an idea of what your plant needs to thrive. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004PS4B08/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1419201497&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX200_QL40 Nutrients really don't matter if your plant isn't in a big enough container and is not getting enough light so take care of those two things first.

u/DarkyPoo · 2 pointsr/gardening

I started them in a 3 gallon SmartPot because I knew it would outgrow cells before I could get them outside. It transplanted easy along a fence. I fed them with an organic fertilizer (this one).

The soil was great. It was fresh soil in a spot that was never planted in before. Although a pine tree was near it. Could that have done it? It got sun around 12pm onward.

I live in old building and I see cockroaches every once in a while in garbage area, but not so much in my apt. However, a few years ago I started seeing a few (maybe 3 in a month) so I got the below product. I think it works well because I see maybe one a year now, and every once in a while a dead one.

For your first go, i’d use four tubes, to make sure you get it under control, but now i use maybe 2 tubes evert 4 months for “protection.”

u/35palas12 · 2 pointsr/sousvide

It is still pretty cold around here, so the temp was around 25-30F when I was smoking. The Amaze-n-smoker uses pellets to create smoke at a low temp.

I use it for nuts and cheeses a lot in the Spring and Fall when ambient temps are lower. As it starts to warm up, I still use it, but will put steaks, chops and other things on a bed of ice in the grill with the smoke. If you like smoke flavor, it doesn't get any easier.

And thanks for the kind words.

If you're a smoke addict, I recommend smoking some of the cheese. If you have one of these, you can cold smoke inside your existing smoker. That way you can put a decent amount of smoke on the cheese without melting.

u/bowbeforejebus · 2 pointsr/smoking

I have one similar to this and I love it but I probably would not recommend it for indoor use. I use it on the patio and half my house still ends up smelling like smoke and meat after using it for a couple of hours. Plus, he'd have to find some way to vent it outside, something like coupling a hose to the vent in the top and putting the other end out a window?

Maybe try something like this https://www.amazon.com/A-MAZE-N-AMNPS5X8-Pellet-Smoker/dp/B007ROPJ1M which he could use in the oven to add smoke flavor? Still would be a little concerned with smoke indoors though, especially in an apartment where you could lose your deposit if the smell sticks.

u/ihitrecord · 2 pointsr/BBQ

My disdain for pellet smokers is probably no secret, but being that this was a gift, I'll tell you what I've learned from them. Don't sell a gift, especially from your father in law. That's a dick move.

  1. You're going to end up with a shitload of pellets from a shitload of different manufacturers. Start here. Maybe here too.

  2. You're probably going to want one of these, too, because they don't put out a ton of smoke to begin with.

  3. There's a little button on it that you can use to adjust the auger speed. That'll add more/less pellets per temperature setting. You'll probably have to adjust that based on ambient temperature, because if it goes too fast, it'll clog up and stop burning. That little button is, in my opinion, stupidly hidden, and should be a knob right on the front of the control panel.

  4. Depending on the model, you can seal the chamber a LOT better than it comes from the factory to keep more smoke in and on the food. For the first round, feel free to shove foil in. Long-term, use the same gasket strips that you'd use on a BGE, like this.

  5. WARNING: This one can cause a fire. Again, depending on which model, you can restrict the airflow from the smoke stack. This may or may not cause the heat to flow back up through the auger, and result in a very, very unfortunate mishap. If you decide to try this one, be very, very careful. I'd advise against it, but hey, this is NEWFREELAND.

  6. People will tell you to put it on "smoke" before cooking. This is a bad idea. You probably won't get food poisoning from doing this until you're really, really comfortable with that process. If you're doing something that has nitrates in it, by all means, go for it. Otherwise, fucking yikes.

    There are a ton of other things you can try, but these will definitely get you started.

u/_--___ · 2 pointsr/smoking

Nice, glad it works for you! I had the Amazin smoker tray, but found I didn't get enough airflow for it to work properly, that and sawdust was hard to find/overly expensive, so I bought the Amazin tube and use pellets. It burns through a little quicker, and runs a bit hotter, but it's much more forgiving with airflow.

u/WSM604 · 2 pointsr/smoking

I purchased a cold smoke generator. And all it does burn tiny wood chips and it creates no heat and produces more than enough smoke. You'd light it once and it'll go for about 10 hours without an issue. All you need is an torch to get it going.
This is the cold smoke generator I bought:

u/rynnbowguy · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I have just successfully dealt with this without an expensive exterminator. First thing is to take the bottom liner off of your box spring and use this dust all on it http://smile.amazon.com/CimeXa-Insecticide-ounces-bottle-Rockwell/dp/B0085HRWI8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1463285327&sr=8-1&keywords=cimexa . The Cimexa will get under their exoskeleton and dry them out and kill them usually within 2 days. You want to use the Cimexa on your baseboards, light fixtures, outlets, and furniture. From all my research this is the best way to get rid of them as they are really resistant to chemical insecticides. Put your mattress and box spring in bed bug resistant mattress covers. Through all I read this brand was the best http://smile.amazon.com/Sleep-Defense-System-Waterproof-Encasement/dp/B01413355S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1463285687&sr=8-1&keywords=bed+bug+mattress+covers. I put the Cimexa on the box spring on top of the mattress cover just to be sure everything died. You want to leave the mattress covers on for at least a year, the bugs can survive for up to a year with no food, so if you are just trying to starve them out keep everything sealed for at least a year. The plastic foot to put under your bed works, I used tuperware of water but I have plastic bed feet so I don't have to worry about rusting my bed frame, they cannot swim at all so the water is very effective, put bleach or witch hazel in the water to discourage molding and mildewing. Wash and dry all clothes on high heat, they will die within 20 minutes if exposed to 120 degree heat, can also put things in your oven that wont fair well in the dryer. Vacuum daily, make sure you take the bag out seal it in a garbage bag and take it outside far as you can from the house as soon as you are done vacuuming. Keep sleeping in your bed, you want to draw them out of their hiding spaces to get in contact with all the Cimexa you have laid out, you are essentially using yourself as bait, there are also so DIY CO2 traps (they are attracted to the CO2 we exhale) that use water and yeast or dry ice, I haven't used them but you might want to look into them if you feel so inclined. Good news is they are more annoying than anything, they are not known to spread disease or cause actual harm aside from being itchy. Good luck I hope this helps you.

u/makeshift-damselfly · 2 pointsr/IAmA

Long post incoming!

Not sure what you tried but here's what I did (sorry if you've already done these). Full disclosure, I'm not a professional in the slightest, but this worked for me.

  1. Dry everything on high heat for 45 minutes (if it can handle it), wash it, then dry it again (I may be paranoid, but I'm thorough).

  2. If it can't be put in the dryer, double bag it and put it in the freezer for several days. I mean SEVERAL days, don't short change yourself! Don't bring anything back into the room after it's been dried/frozen.

  3. After pulling off the bedding, get a vacuum and vacuum the hell out of everything. If you see a bug (any bug. I commited a full-on insect genocide.), vacuum it up!

  4. Get matress, boxspring, and pillow encasements. Make sure they are rated for bed bugs!!!! We sealed the seams and the zippers with duct tape because, again, I'm paranoid.

  5. Pull the furniture off the walls, or at very least the bed. Get some [cimexa] (https://www.amazon.com/CimeXa-Insecticide-ounces-bottle-Rockwell/dp/B0085HRWI8) or DE earth. Sprinkle it around the baseboards, around furniture... Hell put it everywhere. However, if you have bad lungs I'd recommend not running a fan while the powder's down.

  6. We used a spray as well, but I can't remember what it's called. When I get home I'll look. Before putting the powder down we sprayed the various nooks and crannies.

  7. Keep sleeping on the bed!!! I know it sucks, believe me! You may not be able to sleep, but you are bait. If you move they will look for you. You're their food. Before going to sleep, inspect the bed. If you see any bugs vacuum them up. It's exhuasting, but it's important.

  8. If you want to isolate the bed go ahead. I heard mixed things from the pest control officers that I talked to, but if it makes you feel safer do it. I used something like these and put the powder in wells.

  9. Please don't ignore your mental health! If you're feeling upset it's totally understandable. You will probably be tired, frustrated, itchy, paranoid... It's totally fine. Keep up with all the checks, vacuuming, drying/freezing, spraying and you'll get there! Just keeping on fighting. If it makes you feel better, think of this as away to reorganize, redecorate, or redo your home once they're gone.

Dust the place with this:

Use with this cheap bellows duster:

Cracks and baseboards, and bed perimeter with this:
Ortho 0202510 Home Defense Max... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JYT16AA?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share


Get that dust everywhere. I see you got rid of your furniture? But, when you get new? Get that stuff down in the cracks and everything. Do under your bed. Just do the whole place with a fine layer it will grind into everything and disappear...but stay there for ten freaking years. The NEXT day I started finding them dead and dried out. The live ones were all jacked up acting and had dry bodies inside of plump ones. When I mashed a live one? It just flaked apart. I still keep the bed traps under our bed feet? Nothing. Check out and read the reviews on that dust. It’s no joke and it won’t hurt you. It works FAST and it’s deadly.

I dusted the bed frame and pulled off the sheets and dusted the box spring and sides and my mattress too. Put the sheet back over it and pulled my bed about two inches from the wall...well I did all the beds like that.

I did every inch of this place....over kill. But they crawl trough that dust and it fucks them up big time.

It was ages before I finally felt completely “safe”. But I haven’t even thought about them in months now.

The dust is Cilicia gel. Like the little packets you find in new shoes of beef jerky. Dries them out. Just absorbs every drop of moisture in them. Works through their exoskeleton. Literally turns them to flakes.

u/aloveablebunny · 2 pointsr/Bedbugs

Your landlord may not have been aware of an infestation. They could have been deep within the box spring, he could have been immune to their bites.

Have you CONFIRMED that these bugs are bedbugs, by visual comparison?

Follow this protocol:

  • Use a minimal frame that has little to no spots for bedbugs to hide in, such as a lightweight metal frame

  • Purchase interceptors to put under the legs of the bed frame

  • Move the bed away from the wall, and away from other furniture (isolate it)

  • Wrap both box spring and top mattress in bedbug-proof mattress encasements - the zippered kind that SEAL/ZIP CLOSE.

  • Purchase CimeXa dust and a handheld bellows for application of the CimeXa. Dust this LIGHTLY (do NOT make piles of it) around the baseboards of the rooms in the house, in/on window sills, on the bed frame, inside of dressers/desks/bookshelves, around the bed itself, on the mattress and box spring (before you put on the encasements), and behind/inside of electrical outlets/faceplates. This will dry your skin out so be careful not to touch it a lot, or breathe it in - use gloves/a mask when applying. Your goal is to "puff" it where you're applying it and let it settle in a fine layer. If you vacuum after application, you will need to reapply it

  • You can use Diatomaceous earth too, but CimeXa is much more effective, it lasts much longer, and it's safer to use as DE is harmful if it is breathed in.

  • Wash all clothing and linens on HOT and dry on HIGH HEAT for at least 60 minutes. Store in AIRTIGHT plastic containers or plastic bags that SEAL to prevent hitchhikers and re-infestation. Store away from the bedroom if possible.

  • Look into buying Nuvan ProStrips for items that cannot be laundered - including books, records, shoes, sensitive clothing, etc.

  • All other items that you do not readily need can be stored in AIRTIGHT plastic containers, preferably in a garage or away from the possible infested areas. Adult bedbugs can survive for almost a year without food, so "starving" them is not a reliable method of eradication on its own.

  • Treat the WHOLE HOUSE - NOT just your bedroom, as bedbugs will absolutely move from room to room. Couches and chairs can be treated with CimeXa too.

  • Have diligence and patience - worst case scenario, contact an exterminator, but you can eradicate the bedbugs (if this is what you're dealing with for sure) through DIY methods as long as you are thorough.

I have this in two foot and 4 foot. Highly recommended. All my plants are nice and vibrant and not etiolated at all.

And I also have this for quarantine plants and at work for my desk plant. Works great and is dimmable, and each light can be turned on individually or together. Also has a few built in timers.

Also, as an aside, when you do get your cactus a light make sure you acclimate it. Just like us, cactuses sunburn.

yea, don't use ViparSpectra 300w. Grab some T5s instead: https://www.amazon.com/Light-4lamps-DL824-Fluorescent-Hydroponic/dp/B009GU4RMC
maybe splurge on some bulbs. You will be able to bring the light much closer with the T5s. The LED u looking at is ~meh to say the least.
For some real restricted space, u may want to invest in something like this: https://scrogger.com/products/p-scrog-primary-system with the money you save buying the T5s instead of that fail led.

u/Mitten_Punch · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

Can't speak to the hydro part.

  • If you are on a budget, don't go Gorilla Tents. Yes, they are great. For 1/3 the price you could go Apollo. Unless you are moving this thing around every grow, you won't see a difference.
  • These clip fans are junk. They move no air. Optimus 7" fans are well worth the extra $5.
  • Accurite monitors aren't great. Caliber are better. Really, unless you are going to be constantly monitoring RH, which you shouldn't need to, get a programmable thermostat from Inkbird, hook it to your fans and keep the temp at a set range.
  • You don't need a CMH for your veg tent. If you are growing perpetual, 2' T5 is more than enough.

    Since you are already considering $600 for lights, going Quantum Board (or diode strips if you don't mind DIY) really is a better option. 260w @ 3000K for flower, and 120w @ 4000K for veg for veg is a better option. Cheaper and they run cooler.

It depends on the plants, but that light wouldn't be much help to most garden/outdoor plants. Even something like this would need to be right next to the leaves to give them enough light, and left on for at least 12-16 hours.

If it's an indoor plant though, they generally don't need as much light and will most likely be fine even with that bulb you linked.

Expand from there with more panels depending on how fast you want to charge the battery. I recommend spending the few extra bucks for the MPPT charge controller, those cheap chinese PWM controllers can be pretty notorious for QRM. The charge controller specs will determine how many more panels you can add to the system.

For temps look at something with a temp sensor and pair that with a cheap booster fan and it will pull the air out when the light is on and regulate the temps for you. https://www.amazon.com/Century-BNQ-T7B-Digital-Cooling-Controller/dp/B01LZV591B/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1550002156&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=century+temp+controller

I looked at a comparable led light and it looks like it would have appropriate PAR levels of light at about 24-30 inches above your plant. 12 inches is really close. Plants at that stage need very little light intensity. The consensus is about 250 par for seedlings.

Well if an ounce is all you want, check out /r/SpaceBuckets. I could never get myself to do it as growing a weed plant, even just 1, is a huge investment of your time, resources, and effort. I think about it like: If I can get 1-2oz from a spacebucket in the same 3-5 months time, why not invest money that'll make itself back twice over just the first grow (even if you dont sell any, to me getting 1000$ of weed from my grow is making my 1000$ back but ima stoner lol)
and spend my 3-5 months growing 16-20oz.

Ya know? But I can understand why some people can't or dont want to.

u/bekindrewind · 2 pointsr/snakes

You don't need a "night light", you want your snake to have darkness at night. Light and heat should be from two separate sources, and make sure your heat source is always controlled by a thermostat. If your room does not receive ambient lighting from a window, etc. you can use something as simple as a clamp lamp with an led light bulb screwed into it, plugged into an outlet timer. As long as the light is not overly bright (grow lights or aquarium fixtures can be too bright) and your snake has a place(s) to seek shelter this will work fine.

u/tensecondsflat_ · 2 pointsr/cornsnakes

I am a huge fan of these thermostats. I have three for my snake's viv-- one dangling under the heat lamp at the point she could slither to, one against the glass where the heat mat for the warm side is, and one against the glass where the heat mat for the cool side is (my house runs too cold, so I keep lamp+mat for the warm side both set to one temp, and mat on cool side set to a lower temp).

I tend to keep my apartment around 70F, which wasn't enough to keep my starter decently active. I bought a seed germination mat with a thermostat and put it in a plastic storage bin. Works great to keep my starter temp consistent and doubles as a proofing bin when I'm baking.

I wouldn't put too much stock into anything you read on yahoo answers. I've used CHEs for a number of years without issue. Depending on the wattage, I've measured over 500 degrees on the surface of the CHE but ceramics can withstand extremely high temperatures. A defective CHE with a bubble in the material could easily explode and I'm sure it happens but it seems rare. If you are concerned, there are very reliable and affordable thermostats available online. Just make sure you are using a light fixture with a ceramic socket so it can withstand the heat of the CHE. These are the fixtures and thermostats I've used with CHEs and UTHs.

I use a fair bit of blankets and a plant germinating mat with a temp probe. I think I paid 20-30$ for that mat, and blankets/towels from a second-hand store. If the room is cold enough, you shouldn't need a freezer. It will be less effective but much cheaper. Something like this, mat not included.

u/MSRT · 2 pointsr/reptiles

Get yourself a heat mat and a cheaper thermostat. I use these when I need a cheaper option. I also have a second probe thermometer to monitor the temps since I don't completely trust the cheaper thermostats. But I've used them for years without any issues, so I haven't found anything to justify my distrust. I just like to be doubly sure. (:

For the shedding, the most important thing to help your leo is a humid hide. My girls get enclosed hides (something with a base and only a hole entrance) with sphagnum moss. I mist the moss until damp every other day or as needed. I live in a very arid environment (usually around 20%) and don't do anything else for my leos humidity wise except their hides. They very rarely have any shedding issues. One girl actually came to me with horrible chronic shed problems (she lost 3/4ths of her poor little toes to stuck shed), but with her humid hide she's not had any problems since!

If you don't have one already, there are guides to making your own humid hide. You can get a tupperware container with a lid, place it on it's top and cut a hole in the side where the leo can get in. Stuff it with a bit of moss and mist it and there you go! There are hides sold specifically for humidity, and I find my girls prefer the dark hides to the clear tupperware, but it sounds like your boy needs something ASAP.

Edit: to answer your question more. I only step in for stuck shed with my leos if it has been a few days. Once in a while they will have some left over for awhile after a shed, but they usually take care of it themselves. Toes and noses can be tricky and can take some time. If they have a humid hide they'll use it to help soften the remains. When I do have to step in, I use a wet cotton swab after a soak. You can try dripping water onto his nose to soften the shed first.

What you really want to ask is how many Watts per square meter (or square foot). If your garden bed is large, you'll need more light. And light that doesn't hit the garden doesn't count.

Something like this covers about 4'x4' with pretty good brightness. With all the LEDs pointing at the plants, this will be far more effective than a LED grow bulb in a typical household lighting fixture.

If your house is 77F, but your water is 93F, something is wrong. The water should be at ambient temperature, which in your case seems to be 93F. Do you have a lot of hot lights right up against the plants with no fan? If so, fix your lights.

It’s an LED array. It’s a cheap one; you’ll find they can get very expensive. LEDs are nice because they consume little power, produce almost no heat, and last a long time. These plants get some sunlight; I use a timer to run the lights 2-6 hours/day, depending on time of year.

I’m no expert, but I find they work well, especially for seedlings/young plants. Some plants do fine with limited sun, others need lots of light. Flowering plants apparently do better with a wider spectrum light than the one shown here. I’d suggest researching a bit, getting one that fits your needs, and giving it a try.

Hey there! I think you're going to have trouble growing in the window if you're facing north. South is best, and I've grown nice window plants with good east and west exposure, but never north.

I think your best bet is to do a small indoor set-up like mine. This is where I start my peppers before moving them outdoors. I have three of these panels suspended from a shelving unit, and I'm growing below using Khang Starr's 2-cup method. The lights are on a timer for 16 hours of light and 8 hours of dark, but you could get away with a little less if it keeps your roommate happy.

I actually germinate the seeds in a starter with a heating mat to keep it around 85°, but while that will speed up germination, it's not completely necessary. You can also get good results by germinating the seeds in a paper towel, dampened with water, and sealed in a ziploc bag.

Last thing is the fertilizer solution for the bottom cup. I use MasterBlend 4-18-38, mixed with the recommended amounts of ammonium nitrate and Epsom salt. I've had really excellent results so far.

If you get started soon, I don't think you'd outgrow a small setup by mid-May.

Excellent! I'm torn between the bulbs I did, the one you have, and this one,
(https://www.amazon.com/Phlizon-Thermometer-Humidity-Adjustable-Spectrum/dp/B0752CL6KJ/). Do the bulbs for yours have a good shelf life? How costly are replacements vs the LEDs?

u/RoboticAnatomy · 2 pointsr/Bonsai

Hi there!

So I would really like to get into the art of Bonsai. I've been looking at getting a Ficus. The only problem is that it would have to permanently (at least for the foreseeable future) live indoors, as I live in a townhouse complex, without access to a balcony/private yard/fenced in area. I completely understand bonsai don't do well indoors, but with the proper lighting is it doable? I have been looking at lighting from local hydroponic shops and am having trouble picking a light. Would a basic 100 Watt-Equivalent CFL work? Or should I get something a bit fancier like one of these?

250 Watt, 6500K CFL with Reflector

2 Foot, 2 Tube, T5 Fluorescent

60 x 10 Watt LED Grow Light (600 Watt Equivalent)

60 x 10 Watt LED Grow Light (900 Watt Equivalent)

[CFL 13 Watt = 65 Watt Equivalent, 6500K] (https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.cfl-13w--60w-mini-twister-daylight-6500k---case-of-12-bulbs.1000681198.html)

CFL 23 Watt = 100 Watt 2700K

CFL 23 Watt = 100 Watt 6500K

If I were to get Fluorescents I would need a stand of some sort. Would something like this work? Should I change the bulbs to something more powerful?

24 Watt, 6400K, 2 Feet T5

Any of the lights purchased would be kept on an automatic timer indoors. Should the length of the timer be affected by the power of the bulb? Less powerful = More time per day?

Here's u/ataraxia's classic link dump I found on a other post. Although the informstion is written for bps (most common snake people have trouble with it seems- mostly due to the humedity) but the suggestions could definitely help you for the humedity aspect needed for your boa.


You should definitely read it through.

i'm going to dump a bunch of helpful links on you. the first three links are detailed care sheets, then a tub tutorial, and the rest are product recommendations. read everything thoroughly, come back with any questions.

glass tanks can be very challenging for ball python husbandry due to the high amount of air flow with the screen top and the total lack of insulation with the glass walls. it's generally recommended to use tubs or pvc reptile cages instead. wood enclosures can also be suitable if they're designed well and sealed properly to protect the wood against moisture. glass tanks can work, but they require a lot of modification and maintenance, which you'll find tips for in the second link. i'll give you product recommendations to cover options for tanks, tubs, and pvc/wood enclosures.

  • http://reptimes.com/ball-pythons-the-basics-and-then-some
  • http://reptimes.com/ball-pythons-common-problems
  • http://reptimes.com/ball-pythons-feeding
  • here is a tutorial to give you an example of how to set up a tub. this is what i would recommend for an immediate setup, and you could upgrade to a pvc cage upgrade later. note: this tutorial shows adhesive velcro to attach the thermo/hygro to the tub wall, but you should not do that. tape and other sticky adhesives should never be used inside the enclosure, your snake can get stuck on it and suffer serious injuries. hot glue is the easiest reptile-safe adhesive option. screws or bolts can also be used to mount things on plastic/wood walls.
  • pvc reptile cages are ideal. they have the husbandry benefits of a tub with the aesthetics/visibility of a tank, they're much lighter than wood or glass, and they will remain unaffected by decades of constant high humidity. animal plastics, boamaster, and boaphile plastics, are some popular companies. many people will use a tub for a young snake and upgrade to pvc later.
  • spyder robotics makes high quality thermostats to regulate your heat sources with pulse/proportional temperature control and various safety features. this is a popular cheap thermostat with simple on/off style with zero safety features. inkbird thermostats are also low-cost but overall higher quality than the hydrofarm type. any heat source should be regulated by a thermostat to ensure safe and appropriate temperatures.
  • heat tape or ultratherm heat pads are high quality and affordable under tank heater [UTH] options. this is a suitable heat source for most enclosure types. remember that a UTH will not provide ambient heat, it will only affect the temperature of the surface to which it is attached.
  • a porcelain base lamp and ceramic heat emitter [CHE] is the best ambient heat source for a tank, and it will also work for some pvc/wood enclosures. any heat lamp that emits light, even red or blue, should not be used at night.
  • a radiant heat panel [RHP] is the best ambient heat source in a pvc/wood enclosure. there are a few options, such as reptile basics and pro products.
  • a digital dual sensor thermometer/hygrometer allows you to easily monitor the warm side floor temperature [with the probe] as well as the ambient temperature and humidity [with the main unit].
  • an infrared thermometer allows you to spot-check surface temperatures anywhere in the enclosure.
  • these hide boxes are a cheap simple hide with a design that offers the best sense of security for your snake. cave style hides, cardboard boxes, plastic food containers, etc, can also be used. half logs are not appropriate hides.

u/Treereme · 2 pointsr/snakes

Personally I use these generic branded CX201 - A units. (be aware the link I provided is shipping from China, and will take a while). I have half a dozen and while they are cheap they have been relatively uniform and accurate throughout all the examples I have.

[The AcuRite](AcuRite 00891A3 Indoor/Outdoor Digital Thermometer with Humidity https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001BO8CUE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_LIiRAbCEG2W80) indoor outdoor plus humidity units are very popular and come highly recommended.

u/ZMan941 · 2 pointsr/snakes

Great! That should also serve as an example too: if it was that easy for you to take off and expose the adhesive, imagine how easy it would have been for a snake!

This is the digital one that Ataraxia has in her link dump. I was concerned because of the reviews, but actually looking through them it seems to be a lot of people who don't know what they are doing/buying. I did an ice-bath test for the probe, a salt test for the hydrometer, and compared the "Inside" temp with a known source and it was fine. While that's a sample size of one unit, you can also return to Amazon for a fair period if something does go wrong.

The hardest part ill be fixing the main unit to the tank since you have glass walls instead of plastic (Plastic you can just pop a hole and slip a bolt through).

u/sailor_viola · 2 pointsr/succulents

It's this light from amazon.

oh and heres the lights I would recommend for smaller setup like what we have:

https://www.1000bulbs.com/product/8254/FC85-S50OD.html

and finally, if you're poor as shit like a lot of us are then buy the quantum board first. you can still produce very nice flowers with just that.

Grow Light Plant Lights for... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PYFTHMW?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

You totally don’t need to use both of them, the first one would be good enough. I bought these two for different uses but ended up using both of them at the same time. I leave them on for at least 12 hours a day.

u/momotheducky · 2 pointsr/succulents

I totally understand, I haven’t had to do the big chop myself yet, but it’s something that will probably have to happen in the future lol.

I’ve been using this one that’s pretty good. It brought out stress coloring in my succulents so it’s strong enough if you put it really close https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C68N7PC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_zOj0DbHYF72TS If you have a lot of succulents/plants I wouldn’t recommend this style of grow lamp because it doesn’t cover too much area.

If you wanna go the most inexpensive route you can get a grow light bulb and put it in one of your lamps.

There’s a lot of posts on this subreddit asking for grow light recommendations. You can browse through those to get some suggestions! :)

u/PeeparPepperoni · 2 pointsr/IndoorGarden

I have this one and have found it to be completely sufficient for keeping my plants happy in the winter! It has a clip and you can turn one or both lights on.

u/littleprettypebbles · 2 pointsr/succulents

Ok, so the top picture is from March 10th, the bottom one is a month later, so they've all been under the grow lights I purchased for about a month. Most everyone seems to be happy (my sedeveria letizia is struggling, but that's a different issue, I've not gotten her watering down yet) and the two girls in the middle there have each sprouted two buds and flowered! Wondering if anyone can ID the flowering cutey in the back (hoping now that she's flowered it might be easier).

​

The lights I purchased are these: https://www.amazon.com/Relassy-Spectrum-Gooseneck-Replaceable-Professional/dp/B07C68N7PC/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_3?keywords=grow+light+relassy+45w+sunlike&qid=1555078123&s=gateway&sr=8-3-fkmrnull if anyone is interested, I know people have asked for grow light recommendations and these have done pretty well for me so far. The lights are about 6-8" away from the plants.

u/nillah · 2 pointsr/houseplants

I bought this one a couple weeks ago, it works great so far. My only complaint is it doesn't have a timer or anything built in. I just bought this also (I have a lot of plants to cover lol), I think the light spectrum might be different, and it also has a timer built in so you can set it to stay on for 6 or 12 hours or something. They both are able to just clamp on to the edge of your bookshelf.

You could also get a power strip with a timer built in, that way you can plug the light(s) into it and they'll come on each day automatically, and you don't have to worry about buying a specific light with one included.

Will it be a problem to move them out, or will they be fine because they have been under the grow light for 16hrs a day? Thanks!

a [HLG-100 V2 3000k]($150) would work well for two 5 gal fabric bag plants and should yield around 2-4oz a harvest once you get everything dialed in. It doesn't need any additional parts other than a pair of adjustable hangers($5-10) and a 24 hr timer(for setting 12/12 in flower). Something like this is great for ease of use, low heat, and efficiency. I'd suggest a combo of topping and low stress training(LST) to bush out your plants and increase yield, usually i'll shoot for 8/16 main cola heads however the veg time can be quite long with this method. Fabric pots are cheap and effective, and add some super soil(kinda pricey, but worth it) like fox farm ocean forest/ happy frog and you'll almost have enough packed in nutes to last you until flower. Supplement with budget cal/mag and some cheap flower fert like scott's super bloom and your good to go. Also never try to save time in the drying/curing step, by far the most important part imo and one of the most challenging to get right from my experience. Also you can def veg 4 plants under this but if you want a good yielding flower, 2 would be the sweet spot and you can always add another unit down the road.

​

This company makes DIY kits as well for cheaper, however if pure cost to yield is your interest HPS/CMH are still two great options with a few more needed components(duct fans, tubing, light hood). Also check out cobs if your a DIY person. Not as much spread as the quantum boards but pretty damn efficient too.

u/DesertofBoredom · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

def at least 4 for a tent that large. honestly you'd be better getting a few more powerful versions. 4 of the [100 watt version] (https://www.amazon.com/Quantum-Board-Grow-Bloom-3000K/dp/B07C59J8L2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1542073882&sr=8-1&keywords=hlg+100) would beast out a 4x4 tent through flower. This 285 watt version could handle a 4x4 at veg but you may want to add some supplemental light at flower. And this 480 watt monster would be ideal, but it's getting pricey at that point.

if you are wiling to do a little wiring and buy you're own driver, you could buy just the boards for cheaper from the company on their website: https://horticulturelightinggroup.com. Then you could wire all the boards to a single driver and have a good set up for less cost.

u/Maofish · 2 pointsr/houseplants

Currently in the midst of dealing with a gnat problem. Here's what's worked for me so far:

  1. Can't have fungus gnats if you don't grow your plants in soil (uprooted my English Ivy and am now growing the damned fool in water because gnats kept going back to it).

  2. Mosquito bits. I honestly don't know the ratio of bits:water that should be used so please correct me if I'm wrong, but I soak about 4oz (this was probably overkill) of bits into a gallon of warm water for about an hour (or let it sit overnight in room temp water), and then water your plants with it like normal until your gnats are gone. I try to strain the bits from the water with some mesh because I've seen others have molding issues if they let the bits sit on top of the soil.

  3. Catch the adult gnats with sticky traps before they can breed even more. I cut traps into 4ths or 8ths depending on the size of the plant and attach a disposable chopstick or skewer to stick it into the soil.

  4. To prevent your other plants that currently don't have gnat issues from getting gnats, water from the bottom. It's advised to not let your plants soak in water for more than 30 min at a time. A moisture meter also helps with this. This also discourages gnats from coming back since the top layer of soil is dry.

  5. Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a temporary solution for preventing adult gnats from penetrating the soil to lay larva, but once it gets wet, it's pretty much useless. Sometimes I sprinkle on DE between waterings once the soil is dry. Not a long term solution and also annoying.

    There are lots of other redditors on this subreddit, /r/IndoorGarden , and /r/plantclinic who have faced the same issues, so have a look at their posts too to see what works for them (I see hydrogen peroxide is a common solution). Best of luck!
u/tellinUwhut · 2 pointsr/OrganicGardening

This worked in my worm bin and all my potted plants inside the house. It kills the larva in the soil before they become breeders breaking the life cycle.

I bubble some in a container for a couple hours then strain out the bits and water my plants with it. Get some yellow sticky traps for the adults flying around and you are set.

These kill fungus gnats: Quick Kill Mosquito Bits https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0001LE1VC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ua-OCbHNTK5J4

Both are safe for pets. If you have plants that’s where the fungus gnats are likely laying their eggs. You know if you have fruit flies because when you kill them their abdomen will have stripes. Setting out soap/vinegar traps should kill most of the adults.

u/Cocoa-Butter-Kisses · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

Yes. Before you attack the problem you have to get certain ID on the pest first. Buy some of these to catch the flyers to examine under a loupe. Compare it to images on google and get the necessary pesticides. If you want to skip all that (not recommended) then go ahead because I do. If you have seen them consistently, chances are they probably laid eggs in your substrate. Attack the cycle not the individual. Most efficient way personally for me was a combination of a biological pesticide + mechanical. This + This + the yellow sticky traps = gnat free within 12 hours (atleast for me). The brown shit works like Diat. Earth by cutting up the bodies of the insect (but its in granules instead of powder and won't harm you if you touch it), the mosquito dunks is a fungus that attacks mosquito and gnat larva. The dunks are SUPPOSED to be a mechanical + bio method but it doesn't cut up the baby ones for me, only the adults so I have to substitute with the brown granules. There is an organic form of the brown granules that do the cutting but it was more expensive so I didn't buy it.

Edit: Mix the dunks and granules at a 1:1 ratio and pepper it over your topsoil.

u/hodlorfeed69 · 2 pointsr/gardening

Mosquito bits and/or Neem oil are all you need for gnats!

The bits kill the larvae in the soil and the neem oil makes the adults go crazy that they forget to eat, breed, or even fly!

Foamaster. Slightly smaller version of the NuCalgon coil gun. Half the price. Originally bought it to wash my car before I saw the NuCalgon version in RE Michel one day. Works pretty good! There's cheaper versions on Amazon. Adjustable dilution for different lighter or heavier soil buildup.

u/DeadFable · 2 pointsr/AutoDetailing

I wouldn't buy it myself. Heres what I would buy it's cheaper and get the same results. Soap Foam Gun Wash Mitt Drying for about $60. It's what I started out with and I still use gold class every now and again and the foam gun for my Motorcycles.

My favorite scent by Chemical Guys is their Mr. Pink soap. Smells like bubblegum. Detailer's Pro line makes something called Xtreme Foam that smells like spearmint gum and is very great - but it's kind of pricey to me.

I use this foam gun and I'm very happy with it. The sprayer is extremely high quality and I find that it definitely helps in my wash process - plus it's fun to use! The canister detaches from the sprayer easily. It also makes no noise - I think pressure washers can be kind of noisy if that has any bearing on your decision. Anyway, if you do go another route and put another package together be sure to post it!

I have quite a process now for this car.

I use the 2 bucket method with the following:

  1. Put Grit Guard in one bucket, fill that with just water
  2. Put soap / water in other bucket (mixture ratio depends on what kind of soap you have)
  3. Rinse the car off with the hose
  4. Use the Cleaning Sprayer to get the first layer of dirt off
  5. Rinse the car off
  6. Take the wash mitt, dunk in water bucket and scrub on the grit guard, then ring out
  7. Dunk wash mitt in soap bucket, lather it up
  8. Wash one panel of the car in one direction with the wash mitt
  9. Hose down that panel of the car
  10. Repeat steps 6-9 for each panel of the car
  11. Once car is washed, use the cleaning sprayer all over the car one last time
  12. Rinse entire car
  13. Take microfiber cloth and carefully dry each panel with a different cloth (sometimes 2), going in one direction

    Extra stuff:

  • I also use a generic glass cleaner and take a microfiber cloth and do each window as well

    At first this took me almost 2 hours to wash my car, but after doing it every other week I'm now down to only an hour. It's extreme but it's detailed and allows me to also check if there are any rock chips, which I can then cover with some touch up paint.




u/chowmein86 · 2 pointsr/AutoDetailing

The Gilmour Foamaster II is probably what you're looking. I bought a Chinese knock off of Amazon (Canada) for a fraction of the cost of the Gilmour with great success! While you're not going to get the same level of foam as you would with a pressure washer foam cannon, this will do the job and provide you enough lubricity for your washing medium to glide across your paint!

Dude, there are tons of humane mice traps that are just as effective. Earn double bonus points from Jesus and adopt a homeless snake to feed them to.



http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000YFA7HW

u/Antranik · 2 pointsr/LosAngeles

There are these humane traps which are catch & release traps (for example)... and other people use quick kill snap traps.

No matter what you choose, it's better than using rodenticide which doesn't even kill the animals fast but makes them suffer and then the animal that eats them (the hawks, the coyotes, etc) then suffer afterwards. Even your own pets like your dogs and cats can die from the rodenticide or eating an animal affected by rodenticide.

We tried everything to get two mice out of our place, and after trying 5+ types of traps, this one caught them each within an hour of putting it out. Plus, it's a humane trap, so it just traps them and you go let them go ffar away. we've had no problems since catching our two in this thing.

u/oceanswillrise · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Agree that glue traps are absolutely terrible.

I really recommend humane mouse traps that catch and keep alive. I just went through mice problems in my basement. I caught 6 mice using one of these before finally figuring out how they were getting in and have had no more issues. I'd catch each mouse and then drive to the local park to release them.

When I was younger my Dad caught a mouse in the glue trap and the poor mouse was tugging the trap all over the house trying to get free but getting himself more and more stuck until my dad put him out of his misery.

Here is also a Youtube channel that discusses many different types of traps and provides a lot of good information.

Wow, this is just awful. I'm not entering but it's a bit "shocking" to me that so many are "laughing" and joking about killing sentient beings.

I totally get that you need mice out of your house. I wouldn't want them in either, but I would never kill them, much less joke about their death and more ways to kill them. They want to live as much as you do. We can't truly be a civil society unless we live and let live. Humane Mouse trap. I think you could use that.

u/mjewbank · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

There are a number of fairly readily-available humane/no-kill traps that basically are a long box with a lure in it, with some sort of pressure-plate or something that once a slight weight is sensed, slams shut the entrance of the trap. This contains the critter therein, without snapping its neck or so forth. So long as they're checked regularly/daily, this should result in a live capture of the critter.

Here's about 5 seconds of googling's results:

I have a Masterbuilt 30" electric smoker. This model https://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-20070910-30-Inch-Electric-Controller/dp/B00104WRCY but it looks like they make a newer one that is slightly cheaper now.

I also use a smokin cube with traeger hickory pellets for smoke instead of the built-in chip tray.

I think it's absolutely worth it for steaks. It adds a really nice savory smoky flavor, and the crust you get is extra crispy.

I've had great luck using Masterbuilt electric smokers. I had this one, now have this.

Ours tend to get worn out much faster than usual, using it 6ish hours a day, 5-6 days a week. I prefer the digital one instead of guessing with a dial to try and get the temp right.

u/mtux96 · 2 pointsr/Aquariums

One I use.

https://www.amazon.com/EcoPlus-Submersible-Aquarium-Fountain-Hydroponics/dp/B0018X2XT4/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&ref=yo_pop_d_pd_t2

One I use in my tank as part of my filter:

https://www.amazon.com/Active-Aqua-Submersible-Water-Pump/dp/B002JPGE6S/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&ref=yo_pop_d_pd_t2

As long as it's strong enough to pump water to your tank it should be fine. Stronger will of course be better for speed and getting water there. I happened to have first one because I had to replace it with second as it was too strong to use as part of my filter.

u/foxydogman · 2 pointsr/ChineseLaserCutters

Another thread suggested this 20w pump with this fitting and I've been happy with it for the 6 months I've had it. I run my pump 24/7 to keep the water circulating and so far still working fine

u/chino_brews · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

This is the one I use: Ecoplus 396-gph. It's a classic that a lot of homebrewers use, and was recommended by /u/homebrewfinds.

u/Optimoprimo · 2 pointsr/aquaponics

>Does hydroton need to be soaked for a long time to not float in your grow bed?

No. But you want to rinse it extremely well. It always arrives dusty. So it will soak up initial water that way. Typically if your pebbles start to float, it means your water level is too high. The weight of the media above the water line should be enough to keep the entire bed from floating.

>What volume should I assume for my system when buying a pump

Don't think too hard about this. You will have around 25-30 gallons of water that will be circulating. You're going to need a ball valve regardless of your pump size, because with a flood and drain system you need to be able to regulate the duration of your cycle. This is my favorite cheap pump.

My warning to you: You are really pushing the lower limit of what a system can be. The less water available to the system, the more tiny imbalances can completely throw off the water chemistry. You're going to be dealing with very abrupt swings in your pH, dKH, and nitrate and will probably need to monitor them daily. Consider adding an overflow to the fish tank and a 20 gallon sump, with the pump in the sump.

If you have an IC already you can do the first part using a pond pump fairly cheap, here is one for $28. Can't speak to how good that one is, but I'm just saying there are cheap options out there.

> Regarding the snipping of the ends... i'm not snipping all of the leaves... just the ends and I immediately dip my cuts in aloe vera.

I'm a little confused, all the videos on taking clones I saw had the grower cutting off 30%-50% of the tip of all the clones leaves. So 2 inch leaf ends up 1"-1.5 inch long. This is what I did and what I assume you did. I didn't mean to imply it doesn't work, I was trying to point out how/why it works (less transpiration vs encouraging root growth)

> What supplies did you purchase to get that setup? 2 buckets and what is that machine pump ?

I got this one:

So I just run hose water until the wort gets down to about 110 or 100. Then I hook my IC up to this pump sitting in an ice bath and just recirculate the water until it gets down to pitching temp.

> Also, can anyone possibly point me to any cheaper alternatives to a thermometer/hygrometer? eg something more generic, not specific for reptiles.. my local pet store wants $35 a pop for them

this is the go to hygro/thermometer. As a note, the probe reads temp only, and the display reads both temp and humidity, most put the display on cool side and probe on warm

u/Deviou5 · 2 pointsr/ballpython

Hey! Thanks for all the great info you've posted in this thread and all others. One thing I've noticed however is that your resources recommend this therm/hygrometer, but the product description indicates that it measures indoor humidity at the unit itself, not at the probe location. Assuming you use a unit similar to this one, do you have the unit mounted inside the enclosure somehow? If not, how do you get an accurate humidity reading from inside?

EDIT this link you provided below shows the same thermo/hygro unit attached to the inside of the tub with adhesive velcro strips - something I've been very thoroughly warned against by your link to that poor injured corn that ended up dying.

u/truecreature · 2 pointsr/reptiles

Oh those little round plastic ones? If so, there are a couple different problems here I think -


Those plastic dial thermometer/hygrometers are pretty much just garbage. If you want to get a better reading of what ambient temps are, I would look into digital ones like Acurite. This is the one I use which comes with a probe that can stick on to the side of the tank. There's also one that's like $11-$12 but it just sits on the bottom.


Another problem is UTH are designed to only heat the direct surface above where they're positioned, so they don't have much of an impact on the ambient temp. The best way to measure a UTH's heat is with a temperature gun, which takes a reading directly from the surface. They're about $20 on Amazon. If you used a temp gun on that UTH's surface you'd likely be surprised by how hot it is; actually, a UTH unregulated by a thermostat can get dangerously hot for an animal to touch.


What you might want to look into is a ceramic heat emitter; it's an unlighted bulb that screws into a heat lamp and it'll heat the air temperatures below the lamp. You'd probably have to experiment with different wattages or get a dimmer for it to get temps around what you'd want

  • [Bifenthrin]
    (http://www.amazon.com/Compare-N-Save-Concentrate-Outdoor-Control-32-Ounce/dp/B00ARKSABO
    ). Main ingredient in many of those bayer garden pesticides. Short lived so as long as you are not too far into flower shouldn't cause any issues. This is your not-fuckin-around option.

  • IG regulator. This will prevent the larvae from fully developing. Takes a while to fully work since the adults need to die naturally which takes 1-2 weeks, but is ultimately effective and mild of the plant.

  • Bacillus thuringiensis Israeliensis. Bacteria that attacks and eats the larvae. Works well and is considered "organic," but takes a few weeks for complete control. Use dechlorinated water for best results.

I bought a small bottle of the mosquito dunk granules several years ago. The bottle has sat outside (in sheltered spot) and they still work just fine. They seem kind of pricey but a little goes a long way and they don't seem to go bad.

u/Old-brain · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I put about a tablespoon of mosquito bits on top and mixed it in. BT is good for fungus gnats and my wifes figs were infected so peroxide isn't a great choice. On top of which I mixed this soil and let it set for 3 weeks just to get the right things going.

u/Peuned · 1 pointr/microgrowery

you probably wouldn't need too deep an ipm. neem oil or azidirachtin spray while in veg every week would be ok. add some crushed up mosquito dunks to your medium to tale care of any soil gnats (you want the stuff with BTi in it https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0001LE1VC/ )

that would be fine for most indoor grows imo. i have plants in and outdoors and my ipm is a little more rounded, but i only use stuff when i need it, except for caterpillars outside. that's a weekly spray.

​

you can let them float in a little bowl of water near your plants to attract and kill them but i don't like the look of that so i just pour some into my watering can and allow them to sit on the top of the wet soil in my plants. i did it twice recently (during my routine watering) and now i am gnat free again! and thank you so much!! :)

u/meggledore · 1 pointr/houseplants

I have a fungus gnat issue too. I’ve been using sticky stakes to catch them but I’ve noticed it doesn’t actually solve the problem in the soil. A lot of people have been recommending mosquito bits to me so I’ll be trying these out. Good luck!

u/HyprAwakeHyprAsleep · 1 pointr/childfree

Sounds like fungus gnats. You can use that dish soap method, but when I had delicate venus fly traps I used mosquito bits which you basically sprinkle in before the next watering.

I have been washing my truck with the 2 bucket method. I just watched a junkman video on his 2 bucket method, and he recommends using a foam cannon to loosen and remove most of the dirt and grime. Do the foam cannons really make a difference? I found this one online.

Another question - Can someone critique my overall process for paint correction? I have a griots garage DA, have 2 orange pads and 2 white pads, meg's ultimate compound and meg's 205 polish, as well as menzerna sealant.

I plan on washing the car w/ 2 bucket method (I use chemical guy's Mr. Pink), claying the car using Mr. Pink soap + water, then rinsing the car and dry with a waffle weave towel.

Then I plan to try to polish a section (white pad and polish) and wipe it down with isopropanol and a MF towel. Which dilution ratio should I use, 10% or 50% IPA/water? If I need a stronger cut, I will move onto compound (orange pad and ultimate compound), and once again wipe down with isopropanol and MF towel. Then follow up with polish again.

Then I want to apply a sealant, and I plan on using menzerna powerlock with a foam applicator (one of these guys) and apply a thin coat and let it settle overnight. Does this sound reasonable?

u/nehmia · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

I'd get a fine grade nanoskin mitt or something similar for decon. Maybe a foam gun or foam lance and some soap. Might want to grab an APC for interior cleaning, although I think you can dilute ONR down as an APC... I really like Optimum APC though, very safe and effective.

Get a reusable humane mousetrap, and make sure you take them for a 5 mile car ride at least before you let them go. I use this in a visible place, so i know when I've caught something. It works great, and I've had it for years.

Once you think you've caught them all, you also want to patch all of the holes both inside and outside to help prevent future infestations.

Never let rodents run around your house though. They chew wires which can set your house on fire.

u/UnpopularOpinion- · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I know that rodents are often seen as pests, but there are humane options out there. Everything else promotes suffering and it's really not necessary. I bought the Smart Mouse humane mousetrap on amazon and it worked like a charm, catching multiple mice a day: http://www.amazon.com/Smart-Mouse-Trap-Humane-Mousetrap/dp/B000YFA7HW

You don't have to touch the mice...just check the trap every couple of hours and reset when necessary. Drive them down the street and dump them in a different neighborhood. You and your girlfriend can live guilt-free that way. And the only way you're going to keep them out of your apartment is by finding how they're getting in and stuffing the holes (the Smart Mouse has directions on how).

If we were talking about a puppy infestation all of the other options would appall the majority of people. That's how I feel about buckets full of water, glue traps, and snap traps. Good luck!

I like mine however, the temp controller seems to be off about 10+ degrees on the high side. I actually have to contact the company and see if they can get me a new controller.

I"m not sure if the 40" masterbuilts have the same issue or not but keep in mind that you should probably verify the temp of the electric smoker controllers no matter which one you get.

I highly recommend getting a remote thermometer like this as well.

The easiest things to make are pork shoulder and salmon. Ribs and brisket are the most difficult in my experience. Chicken is right in the middle...depending on how hot your smoker can get, rendering the skin can require grilling at the end.

I personally started smoking on a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker ($150 to $180 at a Lowes Home Depot, Wal-Mart). You never have to worry about temps, they seal well, and its cheap to experiment with chips and recipes on. I eventually outgrew it after a couple of years and picked up a Pit Barrel Cooker, knowing more of what I actually wanted and would use. I kept my Masterbuilt and now use it for Jerky and light smokes, like fish and fajita meats...might want to check it out. That Masterbuilt put out some pretty kick-ass shoulders and ribs and it was frustration free for the most part.

for me, i didnt use a mailbox, but i have 2 terracotta clay pots, one bigger than the other. i have the bigger one on top, so they sit together like a boston shaker

http://www.livinggreenandfrugally.com/wp-content/uploads/DIY-Homemade-Barbecue-Smoker.jpg

i dont use the mailbox as i didnt want any chemicals from the paint or zinc to get in the food. so i have my smoker elevated, and just an L shape going from the side to right over my clay pots. i dont use any tape or connective stuff. there's like a 2" air gap between top of clay pot and aluminum HVAC tubing into smoker, but it's fine, the smoke/heat just rise up into my smoker.

in the clay pots you can use wood chips or pellets, or whatever. i put some steel scrubber pads in the bottom of the inside of the clay pots to give it more room for air flow. i have the bottom clay pot on a few landscaping bricks to allow good airflow into the bottom of it. my whole setup is less than $250 and it's solid as a rock. i don't need to spend twice that on a trager.

the only problem is you need to allow room for the air to move around inside. it has 4 racks, but at most i've been able to use 3 to make sure good air flow happens. don't let meat on adjacent racks touch, and don't have the meat touch the sides, which would block some air flow.

I'm not sure why the reviews are poor on that website. I only linked that site because it was the lowest price I could find for that model. Here is the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-20070910-30-Inch-Electric-Controller/dp/B00104WRCY. The reviews are much better there.

Regarding the premium, the ash wiper is great! I keep my kettle covered after it cools. Otherwise, some rain could trickle through the top ventilation holes and create a thick mixture with the ashes still inside of the kettle.

If you season it and keep it covered after it cools, that grill is the best starting place for grilling and learning to smoke utilizing the snake method. Very popular. You can read up more on smoking at amazingribs.com.

When you take off the ash catcher, it is its own container with a handle. I'm not sure where you live, but it's worth a visit to a Lowes, Home Depot, etc. to take a look at one.

Again, many will agree the Weber kettle premium is a great piece of equipment that can grill anything and smoke nearly anything.

I have smoked pork butts on mine, made beer can chicken, smoked ribs, smoked chicken, smoked sausage, and grilled dang near anything I could think of (chicken, steaks, pork steaks, pork loin, brats, burgers, etc.) on mine.

Hmm, first thing amazon compares it to is the Masterbuilt

I like the idea of keeping the food area closed (retaining heat) while the wood chips / fuel gets added.

I really liked the electric one I built because it maintained a temp really easily.

Edit: has anyone used one of these?

u/rambopandabear · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Haha no joke the one I have is on lightning deal RIGHT NOW on Amazon. Normal price was 160, current is 129. On sale for 3 more hours! AWMF was so great - I really need the next actual book to come out. Rothfuss is an incredible storyteller.

u/SmashesIt · 1 pointr/smoking

I have a masterbuilt. It is the size of a mini-fridge.

I am a lazy man and so the electric smoker is my jam. Maybe not competition worthy meat... but it is sooo good. My masterbuilt you just set temp with controller (Never worry about temps again)... add meat and water/vinegar to a reservoir. It has a built in meat probe that also displays for you.

Not sure if this is the exact model, but basically this.

Edit:Few details

u/vhsrescue · 1 pointr/smoking

I haven't read much about indoor smokers. Maybe an electric smoker he can plug into a wall inside? You'll have to research how safe that is and how good they.

u/noFiddling · 1 pointr/BBQ

I'd suggest this one: https://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-20070910-30-Inch-Electric-Controller/dp/B00104WRCY

it's simple and does the job. I've had this exact one for about 2 years now and I've even traveled with it to friend's houses. Make sure you get it without the window but controlled digitally. The window will only let heat escape and it will get completely dirty after the first use and you won't be able to view in very easy.

I have even set this for an over night cook with a brisket. Started it at 8 pm and took it off at 11 am. All i had was a meat probe to check the temp and had an alarm set if the bbq was too low or the meat hit the correct temp.

u/drewjy · 1 pointr/smoking

Yep, Masterbuilt electric smoker. Works pretty good, my first smoker of any kind. That is the water pan and wood tray that it came with. http://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-20070910-30-Inch-Electric-Controller/dp/B00104WRCY

u/rahb0sse · 1 pointr/smoking

I bought the Masterbuilt 30" on Amazon and am super pleased. If you don't have the time to keep the heat at the same temp, then get an electric... I like to put it in, let it go for 3 hours (walk away, do yard work, etc) then come back and put some more chips in...

http://imgur.com/a/eM0M2 I just made one of these. Works really really well for cheap. Get one of these pumps.

u/needsmorepepper · 1 pointr/gardening
u/TMaccius · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

The 396 gph version isn't much more expensive. To keep from using too much ice, you could start by letting the pot rest on its own for a few minutes (try a hop stand!), then switch to cold tap water through the pump, then switch that out for ice water. The key is just maintaining a high differential between the wort and whatever you're cooling with.

Another option -- and this is a little off the wall -- is to use your shower. You could switch to a handheld shower, get a diverter, or get a showerhead with a splitter that would let you easily swap in your wort chiller. Handheld showers use a pretty standard 1/2" thread.

u/boogiemanspud · 1 pointr/Aquariums

This one is supposed to fit on a Python hose. I forget who, but it was recommended by one of the bigger youtubers. I plan on getting one as it's faster than siphon power alone, and you don't need to leave your water running on your python to use it.

u/hukdizzle · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I actually just posted about this in another thread if you'd like to read about my process.

You need to look into an upgraded submersible pump and a tub/cooler for ice water. Being able to whirlpool would help as well.

Edit : This is the pump that I use and it does a great job.

u/britjh22 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Is this a full boil, or partial boil? I use a simple pump like this for partial boil to do immersion in a sink, so it gives me the cooling effect of immersion and water on the kettle itself. I do wish I went with a slightly stronger version like the 1083 GPH version. The different versions come with different sized connectors, so you may need a step up in tubing size for the higher GPH versions depending on the tubing you use.

u/BigBudZombie · 1 pointr/microgrowery

The setup you want is pretty quiet. With the airstones on 24/7, set the top feed drip pump to come on a couple times a day and it will still be quieter than a window A/C unit

Very cool. I will warn you that this tank is long and heavy. It took two people to cary it into the house. Also water is heavy so this setup will weigh around a thousand pounds when filled with water. Our house is on a concrete slab so weight is not an issue for us.

My turtles are smaller than your slider so I have not tried to build my own basking area. I use large Zoo Med floating docs for my map and painted turtles.

These are what I use:
https://www.amazon.com/Zoo-Med-Turtle-Gallon-Tanks/dp/B00178LI50

They also make an extra large floating doc for larger turtles but I have not tried it out:
https://www.amazon.com/Zoo-Med-78098-Turtle-X-Large/dp/B01AYBRVN8

I do not have a sump on the tank. I just run the FX6 and a UV sterilizer. Also the FX6 and power strip barely fit in the center compartment of that stand.

I used to use a syphon kit that I bought from the pet store to drain the water but that was expensive and a bit slow so I bought a cheap pump on Amazon and purchased a pipe to hose adapter at the hardware store. I start up the pump and let it run for a few minutes and then detach the hose so I can get the hose into the hard to reach corners of the tank.

Pump I use (it has a lot of different adapters for various tubing but no hose adapter):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0018X2XT4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The adapter I have looks similar to this one except the one I have is male hose thread to 3/4" female pipe adapter (you can find these adapters in the irrigation section at Lowes and Home Depot):
http://www.homedepot.com/p/DIG-3-4-in-Female-Hose-Thread-x-3-4-in-Male-Pipe-Thread-Swivel-Adapter-50007/100186564

I clean out the tank about once a month and clean reusable media and swap out filter floss and polishing pads. Even after a month my water is still clear and my ammonia and nitrites are at 0 but my nitrates are in the 40-60ppm range.

I am a bot programmed to automatically provide the following content by /u/_Ataraxia when summoned. Link to the most recent version of this content here

The first three links are detailed care sheets, then a tub tutorial, and the rest are product recommendations. read everything thoroughly, come back with any questions. Let /u/_Ataraxia know if any of the links don't work.

Glass tanks can be very challenging for ball python husbandry due to the high amount of air flow with the screen top and the total lack of insulation with the glass walls. it's generally recommended to use tubs or pvc reptile cages instead. wood enclosures can also be suitable if they're designed well and sealed properly to protect the wood against moisture. glass tanks can work, but they require a lot of modification and maintenance, which you'll find tips for in the second link. i'll give you product recommendations to cover options for tanks, tubs, and pvc/wood enclosures.

Ball Python Care Guides

  • the basics and then some
  • common problems
  • feeding problems

    Set-up Recommendations

  • here is a tutorial to give you an example of how to set up a tub. this is what i would recommend for an immediate setup, and you could upgrade to a pvc cage upgrade later. note: this tutorial shows adhesive velcro to attach the thermo/hygro to the tub wall, but you should not do that. tape and other sticky adhesives should never be used inside the enclosure, your snake can get stuck on it and suffer serious injuries. hot glue is the easiest reptile-safe adhesive option. screws or bolts can also be used to mount things on plastic/wood walls.
  • pvc reptile cages are ideal. they have the husbandry benefits of a tub with the aesthetics/visibility of a tank, they're much lighter than wood or glass, and they will remain unaffected by decades of constant high humidity. some popular brands include animal plastics [most recommended], boaphile plastics [i personally have these and like them], reptile basics, and vision cages, though you'll find many more with a quick google search. many people will use a tub at first and upgrade to pvc later.
  • spyder robotics makes high quality thermostats to regulate your heat sources with pulse/proportional temperature control and various safety features. this is a popular cheap thermostat with simple on/off style with zero safety features. inkbird thermostats are also low-cost but overall higher quality than the hydrofarm type. any heat source should be regulated by a thermostat to ensure safe and appropriate temperatures.
  • heat tape or ultratherm heat pads are high quality and affordable under tank heater [UTH] options. this is a suitable heat source for most enclosure types. remember that a UTH will not provide ambient heat, it will only affect the temperature of the surface to which it is attached.
  • a porcelain base lamp and ceramic heat emitter[CHE] is the best ambient heat source for a tank, and it will also work for some pvc/wood enclosures. any heat lamp that emits light, even red or blue, should not be used at night.
  • a radiant heat panel [RHP] is the best ambient heat source in a pvc/wood enclosure. there are a few options, such as pro products [most recommended] or reptile basics.
  • a digital dual sensor thermometer/hygrometer allows you to easily monitor the warm side floor temperature [with the probe] as well as the ambient temperature and humidity [with the main unit].
  • an infrared thermometer allows you to spot-check surface temperatures anywhere in the enclosure.
  • these hide boxes are a cheap simple hide with a design that offers the best sense of security for your snake. cave style hides, cardboard boxes, plastic food containers, etc, can also be used. half logs are not appropriate hides.

A T5 or LED setup like the ones in the links should work pretty well. There are definitely still other cheaper options out there, but I haven't done my research on that end of the market so I rather not give you possibly incorrect information.

The fluorescent lights are 2ft. These ones: (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009GU4RMC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I couldn't find 3ft lights I liked (although I think they would be too long), so I went with the 2ft and augmented them with a couple of simple reflectors with these bulbs: (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FYGDX3A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

​

The whole setup is about 3ft wide. The shelving unit is a simple rolling set of shelves. For each shelf, I made a square frame and screwed wire mesh into it, otherwise the spacing on the shelves is too much and the pots tip over when trying to move them. Then the whole thing gets wrapped in a mylar emergency blanket. They're super reflective and keep a lot of the light in.

u/glambx · 1 pointr/sailing

Let's go over a couple terms:

  • An amp is a measure of current; think of it like how thick a garden hose is
  • A volt is a measure of potential; think of it like how fast the water is flowing
  • When you multiply the two together, you get a watt.

    A watt measures power, or how fast something can do work; to continue the analogy, how fast a hose can fill a pool. You can fill it faster by either increasing the hose size (ie. using a firehose, or thicker wires), or turning the water pressure up so that it moves faster (increasing the voltage).

    When you apply power over a period of time, you do work. We can measure work in watt-hours (Wh). Watts determine how fast your boat moves (just like HP on an engine), where watt-hours determine how far (just like how many gallons of fuel it takes).

    If your trolling motor draws 300W, then it consumes 300Wh every hour.

    Or, speaking in amps/amp-hours, 300W from a 12V battery would be 25A; in that case, it consumes 25Ah from your battery every hour.

    Having said all that:

    If you can find a place to mount it, I'd recommend this:

    https://www.amazon.com/Renogy-Watts-Volts-Monocrystalline-Starter/dp/B00BFCNFRM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1485011099&sr=8-2&keywords=renology+100w

    Hook it up to your house / propulsion battery bank via the included controller.

    A few notes:

  1. There are two types of solar controllers - PWM and MPPT. Long story short, MPPT is better, but more expensive. It makes the biggest difference on cloudy days, but even then, it's not a huge difference. On sunny days there's little difference. You can select PWM or MPPT on the link I sent.

  2. To figure out how much energy you'll get out of a given solar panel, multiply the panel's wattage by 4. This gives you a reasonable estimate on the watt-hours you can produce per day, on average, in a Northern climate. This 100W panel will make somewhere around 400Wh/day, which equates to about 33Ah @ 12V. That's enough to run your trolling motor for an hour per day. If you have a 100Ah battery bank, it will take 2-3 days to fully charge it from empty.

  3. Generally, you're always better off with a bigger house / propulsion bank, because batteries operate much more efficiently at low power levels. High power drain creates heat within the battery, and this heat is wasted energy.

    A 30A trolling motor load on 200Ah of batteries (ie. 2x100Ah deep cycles) represents a draw of 15% of its capacity per hour, and it won't create much waste heat. You might get 4-5 hours of propulsion.

    A 30A trolling motor load on a single 100Ah battery represents a draw of 30% of its capacity per hour, and the battery will warm up, wasting energy. You might only get 1.5-2 hours of propulsion (less than half the dual battery setup).

    200Ah of batteries would be ideal, but would weigh between 100-150lb, which might be a consideration.

u/namtab98 · 1 pointr/preppers

I bought this kit many years ago to charge 12v batteries and it works great (though I got a better inverter as that one is a joke,and you need to provide your own battery).

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CIADLG/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

but looking at amazon listings now it seems this is the most popular, affordable entry level kit (note that you are again providing your own inverter and battery):

http://www.amazon.com/Renogy-100W-Mono-Starter-Kit/dp/B00BFCNFRM/ref=zg_bs_2236628011_3

These both charge batteries. Wiring into you home is a much bigger undertaking.

u/pbewig · 1 pointr/vandwellers

It is unlikely that you will be able to power a heater with solar power; heaters simply require too much electricity. A sleeping bag rated for the temperature you will experience is probably the most effective thing for you.

A quick look at Amazon shows the Nintendo switch has a wall outlet power adapter that outputs 5v at 1.5a. Assuming that is correct, you can charge your electrical devices from a wall outlet at McDonalds or Starbucks, or from a cigarette lighter adapter in your car. If you won't be in cities or won't be driving daily, a small solar panel and battery (I like that battery for its dual inputs, which makes it charge twice as fast) will likely be sufficient. Price for solar panel and battery about $100.

If you need more electrical power, put a roof rack on your car, then buy a battery and a 100-watt kit from Renogy (the kit includes mounting hardware, cables, a solar controller and instructions to wire everything together). Price for solar panel kit and battery about $400.

u/SolidAxle · 1 pointr/preppers

Buy a couple large deep cycle batteries and a battery tender to keep them charged

For example, this battery:
https://www.amazon.com/Universal-UB121000-45978-100AH-Cycle-Battery/dp/B00S1RT58C/ is 100ah at 12v, which is roughly 1200 watt hours. For comparison, A 3.7v 20,000 mah phone power bank is 74 watt hours.

Get something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Chanzon-Cigarette-Terminal-Accessory-Inflator/dp/B07CQMQL9L/ to allow using your car charger with a standalone battery.

Add a 100w solar kit: https://www.amazon.com/Renogy-Monocrystalline-Negative-Controller-Connectors/dp/B00BFCNFRM/ if you expect sunny weather during your power outages

It's a waste of space and energy since he's not grinding dried beans or crushing ice every morning, just pureeing some veggies into a smoothie.

Hey, thanks!

I'm going to go into detail on the equipment I bought with my next video (and I've got a really fascinating powerpoint presentation where I try to explain a little electrical theory without putting everyone to sleep). I'll answer your question here though:

I started with a kit that came with the wires you're asking about. The solar panels have those short (2 or 3 feet) wires that end with what's called an MC4 connector. The wires have the MC4 connector on one end, and a bare wire on the other. The MC4 is a weatherproof, snap-on connector.

For the second panel, I had to get the MC4-tipped cables separately. From browsing YouTube, it looks like you can save some money by buying the connectors alone and splicing them onto a wire. I didn't feel like messing with this.

I got all my stuff on Amazon. Here's the list:

u/DwyerHaney · 1 pointr/IAmA

My boat didn't come with the solar setup, but I fitted them myself. You'll need the panel itself, a charge controller, and some sort of battery to store the charge. You could have the same sized system I have (without the battery included) for $200 bucks on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Renogy-Watts-Volts-Monocrystalline-Starter/dp/B00BFCNFRM

u/atoine · 1 pointr/vandwellers

Sorry for the late response... we spent some time on public land, no wi/fi!
You can get a cheap (but good) Renogy 100W kit: https://amzn.to/2JiRPh4, then shop locally for a small battery (in the 50-100 Ah).
Or you could just charge using your alternator with an isolator (cheap solution, but in this scenario you need to drive frequently).
If you don't want to worry about wiring/fuse etc, Goal Zero has good plug-and-play solutions but they're NOT CHEAP (https://amzn.to/2LFW04J).

These can take half shade to full sun and you'll likely get stronger and more compact growth and better fruiting at closer to full sun. You're nowhere near that. This might work https://www.amazon.com/Light-4lamps-DL824-Fluorescent-Hydroponic/dp/B009GU4RMC/ref=sr_1_26?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1466223033&sr=1-26&keywords=grow+light but this https://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Reflector--Spectrum-Indoor-Plants/dp/B015FLSOCE/ref=sr_1_16?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1466223033&sr=1-16&keywords=grow+lightwould really do it if its in your budget. You could also go the High pressure sodium light route. But in general, start thinking brighter. Also be aware of the inverse square law. Light intensity drops off at the inverse square of the distance so for example at 3 feet you have 1/9 the light intensity you have at the source. So basically I would put whatever light as close to the plant as possible without causing heat stress or burning the leaves.

This or the 300W
Nothing is forever tho. Struggle through and grab a decent light when ya got some funds.

u/groregon · 1 pointr/microgrowery

You are at exactly 3 square feet. At a minimum you need 50 watts per square foot or 150 watts total for your space. So something like this would be fine: http://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Reflector--Spectrum-Indoor-Plants/dp/B015FLSOCE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1462999197&sr=8-3&keywords=ViparSpectra

That includes a 3 year warranty which most panels do not.

That is 200 watts so it would put you at 66 watts per square foot. (Microgrowery recommends 50-80 watts per squarefoot, so this is fine)

Follow manufactures recommendation for height. Seedlings 36 inches, veg growth 24, flower 18"

u/Psilocybin408 · 1 pointr/microgrowery
u/MellyTheSmelly · 1 pointr/microgrowery

That depends on how he's going to use the space. The 300s will give more coverage area, but the maximum PAR value will be less (by a substantial amount), so you won't get the same growth potential. If he were to go with the 600w (that's the one I have) and hang it over say, the right 2/3 of the tent he'd have perfect coverage and PAR for that area. It's a choice between barely adequate lighting but good coverage and decent lighting but less coverage area. A compromise might be to put 2 450W LEDs in there (same brand, Viparspectra)

Check out this Vipar Spectra 450W (200W actual) on Amazon. Very well reviewed and affordable. Just bought one myself for my next grow. They have a whole line if you want more wattage.

Haven't even purchased lights/tents yet, but seriously planning an indoor grow and don't know if my setup will work, so feel free to criticize all around.

Location: I plan on growing either in an attic (with good ventilation ofc) or the corner of a large, dark closet, both in a 3x3ft grow tent.

Plants: After some research on Leafly, YouTube, and various forums I have concluded that I am going to attempt to grow Wonder Woman, and I believe could grow 6 plants in that space, but 4-5 is also acceptable if anyone thinks there won't be enough room.

Light: It will be one tent (for now) so I intend on getting a combo veg/flowering LED (since money isn't a big problem and LED yields more than CFL) like this one. If anyone has any recommendations within the same price range (up to $200) I would be glad to look at and consider them.

Medium: Because there are already so many new variables for me, and growing potted plants in soil is something I'm used to, I plan on going with what I know instead of attempting a bunch of hydroponics my first few grows. I assume a better-managed soil grow would be much better than a shotty hydro system.

Also, when do we start cloning? After we determine the sexes? After harvest? Right before harvest? What lights are they kept under?

Thanks in advance!

I have a few led lamps and am planning to buy a tent that will hold both lamps.

lamp 1

lamp 2.

I am planning to start with two clones. Veg for 1.5-2 months. Flowering for 2.5-3 months and end with a final weight of 1LB dry.

I would use the scrog technique and use floranova grow/bloom in FF soil.

Would a tent this size and lamps I will use yield me 1LBS dry??

u/FluffyMuffy69 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

So, as is surely obvious, I'm completely new. I just set up my tent, which is 2x4x5'

I purchased a mars 600w LED, a charcoal filter and two of these fans

VIVOSUN 6 Inch 440 CFM Duct Inline Fan with Variable Speed Controller

I just opened one of the fans and it is ridiculously huge. The reason I chose that one was it seemed to fit the holes n my tent. Which is

vivosun tent

Is this total overkill? Will it work? Ack. I don't want to have to mess with an exchange unless necessary.

u/aesthetics247 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Don't forget a speed controller! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006NGI8VS/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

this one's highly recommended and people say it helps reduce the humming on the inline fan compaerd to cheaper speed controllers.

I'm sure the apollo tents are fine, I've heard slightly better reviews for the vivosun tents. This one's about $12 more than yours i think. https://www.amazon.com/VIVOSUN-Horticulture-Hydroponic-Obeservation-Growing/dp/B01DXYMQ9M/ref=sr_1_2?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1478889774&sr=1-2&keywords=vivosun+48

The Mars 300 is chill for the price, you probably want to want to get a second one if you're going to have multiple plants in that tent. People say 1 mars 300 per plant should get you good results, almost pushing it with two full plants under a single mars 300.

Also if and when possible, try to invest in a good pH meter. everyone recommends bluelabs! https://www.amazon.com/Bluelab-Ultimate-Solution-Measuring-Temperature/dp/B008R7OWJS/ref=sr_1_3?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1478889906&sr=1-3&keywords=bluelabs+ph+pen

I didn't PH at first and my plants were dying on me... turns out my tap PH was above 7.0 ph. the PH pen saved grow!

u/MySecretGardenIsDope · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Hey! As always, thanks to everyone for helping me get better at this hobby.

As you can see from the album, I've got one clone of the Cookie Shots from the Unofficial Good Guys. Other than the yellowing of the leaves, which I can't quite figure out, the grow has gone pretty well so far. My last plants seemed to take FOREVER to get from this stage to harvest so we'll show it goes with my new kick ass 3VL light fixture. The difference between this and my old setup is staggering.

My last grow with two plants and the budget setup yielded something in the neighborhood of six ounces, and I'm hoping to replicate that yield with this single plant given the new light. We'll see.

​

I've never had any issues with yellowing leaves before, and I don't think it's a big concern, but if any of you experts know more than I do please chime in and let me know your thoughts. Grow details are below if anyone gives a rip.

here is the thermostat that I have always used. it’s a good price and I haven’t had any issues with it

and here are the thermometer/hygrometer combos that I use. one on the hot side, and one on the cool side.

u/Daendis · 1 pointr/reptiles

Thermostats are different from thermometers. Thermostats regulate the temperature while thermometers measure it. Non-digital thermometers are also known to be inaccurate. A thermostat like this would be perfect: https://www.amazon.com/iPower-40-108%C2%B0F-Thermostat-Controller-Germination/dp/B01E9IO6N0/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=thermostat+seed&qid=1562452127&s=gateway&sr=8-3

u/squishybloo · 1 pointr/hognosesnakes

You absolutely MUST regulate your temperature with a thermostat/rheostat. They are very cheap, buy one right now. You put the thermometer probe on the bottom of the inside of the enclosure, and set it to the proper temp of ~90F.

I would advise moving your hognose out of the 20 gallon tank - it's far too big for a baby - and moving it into a plastic bin instead. They hold heat much better to keep the ambient around ~80F, as well. Something closer to this will work much better for your snake while it's young and less than ~12" long. You will want to punch holes in it for air flow. I'd also suggest changing to 2-3" of aspen bedding, since hognoses like to burrow and walnut will not hold burrows.

Caution, you want to run your space heater on a low to medium setting. The thermostat can't handle anything above 10ampers

u/Splatini · 1 pointr/Hedgehog

I haven't heard of anyone using those. It looks interesting but a couple things I can think of:

If that power symbol on the top left is a light, it may disturb your hedgehog.

It says it has two heat settings with a built-in thermostat. If those settings aren't an appropriate temperature, you may need an additional thermostat. Redundancy is always good with heaters anyway in case of failure.

I wouldn't place it within reach of the hedgehog despite it saying zero clearance.


Most people use these types of heat products:

add a thermostat to keep it at 75 degrees

u/Asauna · 1 pointr/leopardgeckos

I've found Repticarpet gets messy quickly, especially when your gecko goes for a dip in their calcium dish and tracks it everywhere. I personally use non adhesive shelf liner for the bottom of my tank and add a few stones from the pet store for texture for my little one to run around upon.

I suggest using a temperature gauge to make sure the heat mat doesn't burn them. I like to get them for cheap. I've bought 6 and have loved them all. You typically stick the probe between the mat and the glass, and set the temperature accordingly. This is what I use: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01E9IO6N0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ELKYDbN9JM51K is the one I use

I also use sphagnum moss in the moist hide as it holds humidity better, but paper towels will get the job done so long as you're properly moistening them.

I recommend the Flukers heat mat. It's non adhesive, so you'll want to purchase HVAC tape. This is tape that can be found at most hardware stores. It is made out of adhesive and aluminum foil, so it can easily handle the high temperatures. you can find it in the plumbing section. I've used the heat mats that come with the stickiness on them only to bend and break them when trying to deep clean the tank (I'm not gentle), so this will let you avoid having to replace them as often.

As it's winter, if you find their ambient air falling low, you can always invest in a ceramic heat emitter.

I also suggest using a digital thermometer to gauge the temperature of the air within the tank. You can find these online anywhere between 10 dollars and 100. I have a simple one and it's done the job. This has also helped me with ensuring that I have the heat mat at the right temperature, in case some heat gets lost through the glass and I have to raise the temperatures using the thermometer.

As someone else has said, it's better to avoid loose substrate when at all possible, such as sand or dirt, especially if you're just starting out. This will minimize risk of impaction.

And If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out. C:

u/Herherpsnderps · 1 pointr/leopardgeckos

I'd say your thermostat is broken, if it goes over the set 90f you put in, it should be shutting off, not continuing to heat. Maybe try contacting the company to see if they have suggestions or if they can just replace it? I use a viviarium electronic thermostat for my rack but that would probably be overkill for you. I have used this one before for other species and it works pretty well! What do the tank temps get in the cooler side with the CHE off? does your house stay warm enough to rely on heat pad alone?

u/Shaylios · 1 pointr/BallPythons

Thank you all so much for the advice!

I'm really strapped for money right now, so I'm going to try and make her tank work for as long as possible. I put a little amazon shop list together with some of the recommended products - please feel free to take a look and recommend other suitable products. http://a.co/b2h5atL

In the list, I've got multiple different fake plants, some black 1 entrance hides, a complete hide with 4 sides and just a hole, multiple digital thermometers / hygrometers, a kitchen scale, coconut fiber, aspen bedding, a ceramic heat emitter with dome, and a thermostat
(I had already bought this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01E9IO6N0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
would it be suitable? Or should I return it to get the one on the shopping list?)

She does have one of those metal screen tops, but we put a few boxes and such on top for extra security. I may pick up some insulation pads at my local Lowes and attach them to the outsides of the tank to help keep the heat in. Thoughts on that?

Sarah is eating okay. So far we've been giving her 1 little fuzzy each Saturday. Hopefully when I get the scale I'll be able to more accurately assess the food weight vs hers.

Her shed has come completely off! I gave her a nice warm soak shortly after the photos had been taken, and it was like she just wiggled out of it. Hopefully with the substrate change and the addition to the 4 sided humid hide, I won't need to soak her and she can just do her own thing.

When it comes to the ceramic heat emitter, is 60 watts enough? I'm afraid of burning her. The cage is only about a foot tall, and it would have to be in one of those dome lamps that sit attached to the screen. I've been leaning towards getting the "Zoo Med Deluxe Porcelain Clamp Lamp" for the bulb. Has anyone had any experience with this? Will they work together?

I'm absolutely horrified of any fire risks (my house had burnt down about a year and a half ago due to faulty wiring) so are there any tips to help prevent overheating?

Again, thank you all for the amazing advice. Looking at Sarah's previous setup and then looking at everything thats been suggested breaks my heart. I wish I had known sooner that she was being treated this way... But my friend had made it clear that she was "basically an expert" and "knows what to do." Let me roll my eyes a bit harder. As soon as I had seen her bearded dragon laying in sand, I knew she didn't know anything about these poor animals. It takes a few minutes to do some decent research on an animal. Its been just a day since I've reached out to all of you, and look at all this information! You would think in the 3 or so years that my friend had Sarah, she could've taken the time just to do a basic google search...
Some people really should never have animals.

Anyways, sorry for the tangent. Please let me know what you guys think of the products I'm considering! Thank you so much!

I have used the thermostat you linked for 2-ish years without a single problem. I also recently purchased this even cheaper but functionally identical thermostat, and it's been working perfectly for the last week.

It looks to be only affecting my jalapeno, cayenne and crosses of the two.

The light was probably 1-2 feet away, maybe they got burned?

I have noticed that the soil is taking forever to dry. I'm suspecting my light source is an issue?

I have the light on from 6am to 10pm, fan running, 2 of 3 flaps open. Room temp is 68F, no idea of the inside temp of the tent.

Using this LED light and this fan

A week ago I shaved the top of the soil, it was dark, hard and just not drying out. That's when I added a fan to the equation.

Am I right in thinking it's the light? I am thinking of grabbing this one

u/glarblarbsulsul · 1 pointr/gardening

thanks for your help !!!! I'm almost convinced to get Fluorescent... It looks like T8 fixtures are cheaper than t5. There is one for $18.48 but then then the bulbs only come in a two pack.. if I buy a set of warm white and a set of cool white then that would be about $20, at $10 per double pack. So if I have just one 2 bulb fixture and 4 lights, i may as well get another fixture so I don't have any leftover lights. So - 2 fixtures and 2 packs of lights it comes to about $57.

Now these LED ones I found are not as strong as the 300W ones, and seems that people use them for house plants. They are about $30 for one But there was another seller offering 2 for $55.

My only concern is judging from the grammar errors on the amazon listing, these LED seem to be from foreign manufacturers and they don't say anywhere on the page if they are UL listed like the Florescent lamps are - so I have to assume these lamps are not and reviews say they get hot so I really don't want one of these to burn my house down.

So, knowing they're both the same cost what would you do??? Florescent or LED? Or can I just get 1 pack of full spectrum bulbs and one florescent light?

The LED light is a much more attractive spectrum, the HPS is quite yellow. No way the LED is actually producing 1800 watts but i suspected that going in. Growing banana, avocado, jackfruit, mandevilla, succulents, lemon, pitaya and some others in a dedicated room. Room had been set up for over 2 weeks, new growth on everything. 18 on, all lights on single timer. You can buy the ratcheting carabiner cords for very cheap. One caveat about any light that is going to actually produce healthy growth is that if it is above your eye level you will not like it. Mine is not set up for aesthetics but to keep my plants thriving through the winter in zone 6. Last year I really struggled along with shitty cheap lights and lost a few plants. We have some huge windows but deep eaves and they just aren't adequate. Entering the plant room is like walking into a blast furnace for the eyes because my plants are so tall.

There are some really shit lights so make sure you're reading the reviews. If people are growing weed with them you're generally good to go. Last year I bought a cheap purple panel led and some spot lights and they were shit. They are also hideously ugly, they make the foliage appear brown. Edit- this is the one I bought last year. I would not buy any this weak again

Think that’s the light that’s hanging in the middle, then 4 9inch reflector clamps in the corners with “100w Led Bulbs” - GreatValue brand- that only pull 14w each from the wall.

So 56+45 =101? That was my basic workout of it in the beginning, or something close to it. Think I have wrong spectrums for flowering with the reflectors, no nutrients to boost them (do have foxfarm coming), and I’m aware middle light isn’t strong enough for several plants, but it’s doing pretty good on the one far as I can tell, there is a second in the room it’s just further behind/bigger/different strain/not getting enough spectrum from reflect lights so not flowering normally.

What a world to live in :-)

u/JThoms · 1 pointr/gardening

I've seen on Amazon, as I did some light searching, these LED grow bulb setups. 45W grid of LEDS that are used for growing, at least from seed, indoors. I know you've recommended the flourescent tubes but what's your opinion on these? If it's similar to what you are saying where they keep growing all winter I could see it being a fair replacement to the tubes.

I only used the basement as an example as I do not have a garage and the only south face window which would get enough light exposure is right above a heating element which I have read could interfere with the plants. It also happens to be my dog's watch post, therefore I think the basement would be the best compromise. I will look into setting up the shop lights or perhaps if you are able to recommend, that LED setup.

I noticed much more growth and sun coloration for a while after getting the light, but now for the last month or two, all of that is going away. This is the grow light I bought, I’ve had it for just about a year now.

u/MechaNickzilla · 1 pointr/succulents

I got 3 of these a month ago. Good so far but someone please tell me if I chose poorly and why.

Your grow lights are the emitting the right frequencies, but they are far too weak. Your plants are stretching out as a result. You want something more powerful like this:

I keep my grow light 1.5 feet away from my plants, and they seem to be happy with the setup.

Edit: sent the wrong link

>If your house is 77F, but your water is 93F, something is wrong. The water should be at ambient temperature, which in your case seems to be 93F. Do you have a lot of hot lights right up against the plants with no fan? If so, fix your lights.

This is from the default Aerogarden Bounty LED setup - I bought two of them - both have consistent (high) water temps. The issue it seems is that while germinating and while the plants are youn, the black deck that the water runs directly under is 100% exposed to the lights - I think a combination of that along with the 10" height of the 45w lights during the germination & young plant phase is causing the 16F difference - in the bounty growing the basil, where they shade the deck the water temp is only 8-10F higher...still 87F seems too high for basil so I add ice to that one as well... I brought up my observations to Aerogarden who said just to add ice cubes (my thinking plants dont like sudden temp changes), but that seems to work ok....but seems ridiculous I would need to add 10-12oz of ice twice a day just to bring it down to 70F for a a few hours.. (the ice I add now, is solution I had to remove from the bowl to make room for the ice)

​

​

Since it seems my issue is that the room already starts kinda warm, the LED lighting (along with a black deck with water running across it) is the culprit of the high water temps?

​

In my planned Kratky/DWC setup - should start off with?:

- White Lid/Deck

- fan/forced air blowing on each deck

- 3w or smaller light source when germinating

- moving up to a 10w when young

- moving to a 25w+ when the leaves are covering the deck 90%+?

-- Beyond, moving the lights up and down - is there any other way to keep them from warming things up too much - do they make lights with adjustable intensity?

​

As for natural light, it doesn't get any due to the dorm I'm currently in. This grow light set up is pretty much the only way they can get the required light without etiolating to shit in the windowsill.

u/Iridium777 · 1 pointr/LEDgrowlights

To build on my previous answer: Does this only really pertain to the high intensity grow lights? Because the one I was thinking of getting was this one https://www.amazon.com/Roleadro-Panel-Spectrum-Growing-Flowering/dp/B01IVQ96KY Which seems to have an actual output of 25 or so watts. So if I hung this on a shelf, and looked the plants on it, would it direct the harmful frequencies onto my eyes, or would it be absorbed into the chlorophyll mostly?

I have two of these mounted side by side -- they don't spread a whole bunch, and are maybe 12" above my plants: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IVQ96KY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I don't think they'd grow much more than a phal, though I do have a suburst under them right now that's doing okay, and as you can see in the picture a rogue aloe :-) I really want to build a shelf that is 3 or 4 tiers with each having its own light to keep at home, but I haven't gotten that far. They get just a little warm, but not hot. Just be considerate of that depending where you plan to put them.

u/Henry_Haberdasher · 1 pointr/Autoflowers

Fair play man, and I get the stressed thing. We'd do anything to make them happy and growing vigorously :). We've all been in that boat man. I feel your pain.

I'd germ another seed and start that off too and get a backup going because, I know you hope it will, but in reality she won't produce much most likely. Sorry.

To give her a fighting chance please crank the light distance back up. Here is a distance chart from an advert of it. 12" will cause her further damage.

Also, not to be harsh, but check peoples post history before taking their advice mate. A lot of people talk the talk but have never walked the walk, which means their advice is often based on their book reading or assumptions. Not personal experience of the plant, techniques or kit.

u/Whitestride · 1 pointr/microgrowery

currently using a 300W LED light from VIVOSUN and its been doing great for my 2 pepper plants 2 cannabis plants and a tomato/dill plant i have going,

but im looking into investing into another LED light, this time a 600W to add to my 4x4 tent.

Looking at a few options but im not sure if they're good or not.

vivosun 600w vivosun is reliable and great but its cost is 120$

This no name brand named wakyme is only 60$ and has a dual switch and comes with a few things, but i've never seen any on this subreddit and the reviews seem alright but im not sure.

and lastly this one, phlizon tons of reviews, seems like an older model but also comes with goodies and is only 80$ with a dual switch.


should i go with ol reliable and spend almost double without a dual switch and no goodies with it, or do some of you use these brands and know they are reliable and great to sustain my 4x4 tent with my already 300W led light which is doing great.

I did the salt test and it's only 4% too high. I thought it was busted at first when I put it into my humid enclosure, but it turns out the humidity was just 96% or higher (it was just displaying "HIGH"). It does update pretty well though. I let the enclosure dry out a little bit over a few days due to oversaturating the substrate and the percentage dropped to display an actual number.

u/xx420jewxx · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Here is what I am currently using.

u/kfa4303 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Yes, if you needed to cover a larger area/footprint, then 2 x 600ws would make more sense, but in a single tent it would be overly complex, crowded and expensive. The small gain in light and yield (if any) wouldn't really justify doubling the expense and hassle IMO. A 600w will make plenty potent product ;) Again, it's 90% in the genetics. So long as the plants gets sufficient light, food and water the genes will do the rest. The key is to not get in its way.

All lights, including HPS, have an ideal range from the plants at which they work best. Generally, it's within 18-24" of the tops. As a result, if you have a 4 foot tall plant the top will get good light, but bottom will suffer. For this reason, various training methods (SOG, SCROG, FIM, LST, etc...) have been used to even out the canopy and put all/many of the tops close to the light source in a single, uniform layer. As long as the bulk of your tops receive light within this ideal range they'll be fine. Any closer and they may get damaged by the intense light and heat and farther and they may loose density and take longer to ripen. Many fellow microgrowers actually use nothing but CFL/Fluorescent lights and get very good results.

There is no magic formula or way to guarantee yield. Never let anyone tell you differently. However, there are some rules of thumb. If you can get between 1/2 -1 gram of cured bud per 1 watt of HPS light that's good, but there's A LOT of variation in there, and much of it depends on matching just the right strain with just the right growing method in just the right environment. So, when they say a 1000w "can" make a "pound" (16 oz), that is an idealized figure. Sure, it "can" be done by the pros using various whiz-bang hydroponic set ups and lots of fancy fertilizers, etc...,but not always easily or very reliably due to all the many variables involved. They aren't "lying" per se, but there's always fine print. If you have the time, money and patience to invest into it, almost anything is "possible", if not probable.

In terms of harvesting, remember, plants are 70-80% water, just like us. As they dry and cure, they're going to shrink considerably and loose the vast majority of their weight, just like tobacco, dried herbs and mummified pharaohs. If you've ever cooked fresh spinach, you'll know what I mean. You can watch an entire bag of leaves wilt into a pile the size of your palm in just seconds as the moisture evaporates in the pan. Of course, we need this to happen so the buds can burn, but we also want it to happen to concentrate the aroma and flavor too (ie "cure"). For these reasons and more, you start to see why good weed costs as much as it does, especially considering it takes months per cycle and you have to grow at an almost 10:1 ratio! If you want a single dry, well trimmed and cured ounce you'll need to grow about 8-9 "wet" pre-trimmed, ounces (that includes the fan leaves, stems, other bits, etc....) :/ It's kind of depressing the first few times you harvest, but you learn to anticipate it eventually and plan accordingly. It's also why folks can't/don't stay "micro" for very long.

The good news is that if you're legal you can grow presumably grow outdoors in which case you can literally grow "trees" that will produce 10-15 POUNDS each and still only count a "1 plant" !!!! They would be 20 feet tall and would take almost a month to harvest, but it can and is done all the time (r/trees). Of course, outdoor come with its own challenges, but the rewards can be HUGE.

As for nutes, there are gozillions of brands, but they all do the same thing. The main difference is in hydroponic vs. organic systems. Hydroponics are like sci-fi steroids and the results can be AMAZING, but there's lots more equipment and noodling around involved and when things go bad, they go bad hard and fast. Soil/organic grows are generally easier and more forgiving, but usually don't yield as much. You'll have to decide which you prefer. The "benefits" nute manufactureres espouse are again, mostly marketing. While there are some very expensive nutes (ex: Advanced Nutrients) they're not really necessary and seem to work as well as any other. I run an organic set up, so for small set ups like ours, I use GeneralOrganics GoBox. It only costs about $40 and has everything you need for veg and flower. I can usually get 2-3 cycles (veg and flower) per box. Considering it lasts for +6 months, $40 is pretty cheap. Other companies make their own kits too, but the GoBox is probably the most common/popular. Just follow the directions on the side and you'll be good to go. It's basically all I use and I have no plans on changing.

http://www.amazon.com/General-Hydroponics-Box-Starter-Kit/dp/B004PS4B08

I'm not sure about the mechanics of becoming "legit"in Oregon, but my state will hopefully be following suit soon too (hopefully), so let's hope we both figure it out. One key is finding a robust, fast growing, large producing strain and the growing method it prefers (hydro v. organic). Every grower has their favorites, so I would ask around in your area, but Blue Dream, Girl Scout Cookies and just about any Kush variety perform well indoors and seem to be very popular and readily available on the West coast.

Hope that helps.

no that was right Perlite and flush..... maybe more perlite next time? Ive heard of people usually sitting between 25%-40% I use roots organic Since its pre-mixed and nute content is a bit lax to reduce early burn... Pair that with general organics Box lets me have more control on the nutes for my plant instead of the soil over saturating.

u/2moreweeks · 1 pointr/microgrowery

If you want something simple, fairly affordable (grow and flower nutes come with) mostly organic and complete (even calmag comes with) and to have nutes also for flower I'd sugest the gobox

u/SoCoGrowBro · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I'd recommend coco for sure, I mix in hydroton and perlite and use the GO box nutes in 5 gal smart pots.

I've done the Lucas formula with maxibloom before and I wouldn't recommend it. Definitely treat yourself to a good line of nutes and you'll see the difference right away. I'm really liking the organic stuff so far, I don't have to pH and my plants have gone crazy after I started adding zyme alive (thanks /u/Biloba414)

Just follow the instructions, its easy, its cheap, it works, and its pretty dang hard to kill your plants this way.

Edit: I did pull 1.25 pounds on 2 big plants in a scrog with a 600 watt HPS like this in about a 3.5x3.5 foot scrog. It was my second ever grow.

u/DotPealer · 1 pointr/microgrowery

It sounds like you should look into using the GO Box for nutes. I am coming up on the harvest of my first grow and I used the FF full line this time around with what looks to be great success. I got the hang of adjusting the pH pretty quickly, but the GO Box claims absolutely no pH adjusting is necessary. If you want something that is more or less just add nutes to water >>> shake well >>> water plants then I would check out the nutes I linked.

I've used this to get rid of roaches and it's the best thing next to hiring an actual exterminator since it's what they use.

Use it after deep cleaning the apartment top to bottom, behind all furniture and kitchen appliances (fridge and stove being critical)
Just make sure to out it near any sources of water/food (fridge has a drip tray for condensation) and entrances into and out the apartment such as near the door, behind outlet covers, lights and windows.
After that it's just a matter of maintaining cleanliness and following package directions for reapplication. Got rid of roaches in my house thanks to some nasty roommates and they haven't come back since.

u/elite_bleat_agent · 1 pointr/ChapoTrapHouse

Get Advion Roach bait (https://www.amazon.com/advion-Plungers-Cockroach-Insecticide-Australian/dp/B00730QW70/), a dustpan, and a broom. Put the Advion on dots on index cards and leave them everywhere roaches like, in the corner of every cupboard, room, near all water sources, etc. What will happen is that the roaches eat it and they die extremely high (like, they don't have any pain at all, they get stoned and wander around and die). Some of them will make it back to their nest, then the other roaches will eat them and they will die too.

​

Just keep putting it out and replacing it. DO NOT USE ANYTHING ELSE, no other sprays, no nothing. The first couple of day you will have dead roaches EVERWHERE, you will have to vacuum or sweep up them up in bushels, twice or three times a day. Then after a couple of weeks you won't see any. Keep putting the bait out, refresh it every two weeks, and your problem will be solved.

It's a toss up on responsibility..

"The implied warranty of habitability means that landlords must maintain livable conditions in a rental property. A pest infestation is one of those things that will jeopardize that condition. So for the most part, it's up to the landlord to arrange and pay for pest control."

also

"Pest control falls under the general responsibility of both tenants and landlords to maintain the premises in a state of reasonable repair, safety and cleanliness."

But that aside, self treating I can't recommend any brands but I would caution against glue traps. Largely they end up being a waste of money and if you forget about one, they then become a food source as dust settles and the sticky portion no longer works. If you do use them, try to use a sharpie to number and date them. You know you set 10 on this date so if a month later you come up 1 short you know you missed one. They also have a habit of catching non insects like mice which either starve to death slowly or end up with broken bones or torn skin if you try to remove them yourself.

A quick search I found this helpful video.

Japanese roach traps imho never work and they can suck my balls.

u/Cdresden · 1 pointr/smoking

It's best to cold smoke hard boiled eggs. They're already cooked; you don't need to cook them further. You can use this to turn your smoker or grill into a cold smoker.

u/basement-thug · 1 pointr/jerky

The salt content in Cure #1 is around 94% of a level teaspoon as its usually 6% Sodium Nitrite(the actual active ingredient, the salt does nothing except make it easier for you to dose safely).

Consider a level teaspoon (enough cure for 5 lbs of meat) is 4.2grams. So you're only adding 4grams of actual Sodium Chloride (salt) to the marinade. Marinade for that much meat is probably 3-4 cups volume. By the time you add 4grams of salt to that much meat and water it down with marinade composed of the usual suspects, worsterchire, soy, teriyaki, you would not even know the 4grams of salt is there. Matter of fact if you could accurately measure out 0.25grams of straight Sodium nitride they wouldn't even need to add the salt to the cure but since too much is toxic they do you a favor.

The short answer is its a pinch of salt compared to everything else, so don't even factor it in. Just add the cure accurately and move on.

As far as the liquid smoke, yeah I don't know. I've used it, I've made it without. Liquid smoke adds a flavor that is different than real smoke. Some people hate it, some like it. I think if you're going to do a slow low temp real smoke I would make a batch half and half one with one without liquid smoke and treat it all the same otherwise and decide based on taste.

The probes don't go in the jerky in this case it's too thin. I was referring to probes(plural) because it has a meat probe you can use to verify against the internal chamber temp sensor kinda like a second chamber temp sensor. I also have several wireless probes that I bought separate so I can run 3+ sensors to check things if I want. But the chamber temp sensor that the smoker uses to maintain chamber temp is accurate enough by itself. I normally use the probes for thick pieces of meat to monitor internal temps.

I have the older model, Masterbuilt MES30. I do not use the chip loader the way it is designed. I use a AMNPS 5X8 cold smoke generator with pellets like you buy for a Traeger pellet grill/smoker to make the smoke. Much easier and more consistent. Allows you to set the smoker and walk away for 8-10 hours. The factory wood chip loading method has you adding wood chips every 30-45 minutes and kinda defeats the utilitarian advantages of an electric smoker.

u/djmc0211 · 1 pointr/BBQ

If you like electric I recommend you go with a Masterbuilt pro. This is hte one I use:

https://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-20070411-30-Inch-Controller-Electric/dp/B003XJGEGY/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1467319050&sr=8-6&keywords=masterbuilt+pro

and I usually use a AMAZ-N pelet smoker at the bottom instead of the wood chip feeder.

https://www.amazon.com/A-MAZE-N-AMNPS5X8-Pellet-Smoker/dp/B007ROPJ1M/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1467318800&sr=8-7&keywords=pellet+smoker

This has worked out well for me and I have made many nice racks of ribs and a few small briskets. This 4th will be my first attempt a a larger brisket.

u/uknow_es_me · 1 pointr/smoking

Ah yea I had one of those little masterbuilt electric smokers and it was hard not to end up with creosote with the limited air flow on it and the way it created the smoke so close to the food. I got decent results once I purchased their external smoker and ran it through dryer duct, which is what a lot of people online had done.

I'm sure if you keep at it you'll find a way to get better results. I'd try soaking the chunks and adding 1 at a time .. just go lighter on the smoke in general. If that doesn't work you might look into something like this .. it uses wood pellets and has a slower burn. Not ideal to have to sink more money into something but I know people that have gotten good results with them and it's portable if you happen to have other grills.

u/hamband1t · 1 pointr/smoking
u/SteakLover69 · 1 pointr/BBQ

I switched to just using pellets instead because I had so many issues trying to get the tray to work. Bought one of these things - https://www.amazon.com/MAZE-N-Pellet-Smoker-Smoking-Works/dp/B007ROPJ1M

u/TheLadyEve · 1 pointr/SubredditDrama

It's to increase the chip capacity. I just slide a chip tray in there. I also have an A-MAZE-N pellet tray, which you can actually set for overnight without having to re-ignite or restock. Some people don't like the wood pellets, but I've had decent results with them.

They generate very low heat compared to the amount of smoke it puts out.

u/CockyMcDickerson · 1 pointr/smoking

Rinkelstein hit the nail on the head to make sure you are using the wood chip holder correctly. That should get you a decent amount of smoke coming out of the vent hole on top.

I also have an MES30 and from the recommendation of other forums purchased the A-MAZE-N 5x8 Pellet Tray. It's very simple to use and will definitely give you much more smoke. Here is a link to the product, https://www.amazon.com/A-MAZE-N-AMNPS5X8-Pellet-Smoker/dp/B007ROPJ1M. Simple youtube videos will show to how to load it and light it.

u/The_Kurosaki · 1 pointr/BBQ

Lived two years in an apt complex that did not allowed charcoal grills so... bought a MES. This is what I got for it that helped with the smoke and bark.

u/niknoT- · 1 pointr/smoking

You need to a special setup to provide smoke without heat, or with minimal heat. Some people use pellet trays such as this or this. You can also make something similar with tinfoil.

I have a Masterbuilt 30", so I bought the cold smoking attachment, and added a 3" dryer tube to separate it from the main unit (to prevent creosote from landing on whatever im smoking).

I second the suggestion to use a pellet tray in an electric smoker. It provides a much more consistent smoke than using the chips in the built in tray that only smoke when the element is actually heating. Plus you can use it to cold smoke with too.

u/phiberoptick · 1 pointr/philadelphia

there is a lot of mis information out there. https://www.epa.gov/bedbugs is pretty good. i wasted a lot of money and effort. people say DE is good but you want 100% silica powder like this and these strips. the powder put all over. then put all your shit in plastic tubs with one of those strips. as you put stuff into tubs clean it with rubbing alcohol. its a metric fuck ton of work, but it can be done.

u/so_then_I_said · 1 pointr/whatisthisthing

Do all those things you plan to do, also consult the exterminators about what further steps you can take. Don't forget to use intercepting devices on each foot of your bed, with the bed pulled away from the wall so there's no alternate access. The traps can be as simple as cups with talcum powder (which makes their feet slip), or little glue traps.

Let me emphasize that the silica gel I referenced above is cheap, available (on Amazon as Cimexa), and effective as treatment as well as prevention, possibly for a decade, if applied properly.

The important thing is to stay sane. Be proactive, do all the things you're supposed to, and then trust that they're working. Don't let paranoia turn every little itch into a panic. Scorch the earth but stay cool.

u/SarcasticSocialist · 1 pointr/pestcontrol

Since I haven't seen it here yet, a good way to kill any roaches and prevent reinfestation is by using Cimexa dust. Buy a duster and some Cimexa and lightly dust the interior of the ps4 through the air vents. Bonus points if you open it up and dust the inside too. Watch some videos on dusting appliances so you get a feel for how little you need to use to be effective. This Cimexa is not a poison but rather it dehydrates the insects and doesn't harm electronics. Best part is you can use it in other areas of infestation as well.

If you decide to go this route make sure you use a dust mask when applying and read the label on the Cimexa bottle before you use it. It's not poison but I'm you still don't want to put it somewhere where someone could breathe it in so make sure you know how to apply it before you so.

u/SnailHunter · 1 pointr/Bedbugs

As of now my plan was to wash and dry on high heat all the bedding, buy mattress and box-spring bed bug covers, and get some CimeXa and put it all over the room. Especially in the doorway so they don't infest other areas of the house (is this being naive? will they just go through the walls?)

How does this sound to you guys?

u/allonsyyy · 1 pointr/spiderbro

Powdered amorphous silica, like this stuff. It will kill both, but it kills by dessicating so your ants won't be poisoned. Just don't put it where your spiders go.

Bed bugs can be managed without an exterminator, but you do need to do research. Cimexa is definitely vegan and extremely effective, you just have to be okay with a fine layer of dust on the floor for a few months. It doesn't kill the eggs, but when they hatch, they'll crawl over it to feed on you and then die.

Godspeed, OP, you can win this. I found a few two months ago and now they're all gone. Still dusting with Cimexa for a few more months, to keep them gone.

u/gsl-throwaway · 1 pointr/offmychest

Thanks for sharing your story. I need to hear stories like this one.

I think my first step is getting a "monitor" for them. You can make a homemade one with dry ice (carbon dioxide) and a few other cheap materials. If this "monitor" (which is more like a trap) catches some, I think that will be the evidence I can use to present to the management of my new apartment.

Since I'm pretty sure that monitor will find the evidence I fear, in the mean time I will purchase a duster and a whole bunch of Cimexa and treat every nook and cranny of every visible surface in side my apartment.

When I let my management know, and just how truly awful and shameful that conversation will be, I know that at least they have to choose which pest control company and method will be used to treat my unit. I am hoping they opt for heat treatment of some kind.

Ultimately, I'm hoping that by escalating it within the next month and the following treatment outlined, I can be over this in about 4-6 months.

But I don't know. I just hope it doesn't take my relationship from me...

How effective do you think it'll be?

Hi guys. My wife got me a Bonsai Azalea for Valentine’s Day for my new office because she knows I was always intrigued by them. I read they can be cared for indoors. Thing is, I don’t have a window, only thing is the drop ceiling with the fluorescent lights. I ordered a little full spectrum LED light with a clamp but I’m reading that they need diffused light.

​

Will this light be fine?

​

[LED light](https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07C68N7PC/ref=psdcmw_14252941_t1_B07LBQYDCW)

​

Not sure I even trust it lol I can always return it, that’s why I like Amazon. They are full of knockoffs, though. For all I know it’s just a standard LED.

​

Will this be bad for the Azalea? Is it fine? If so, should I point it directly at it? Sorry I’ve never had any kind of plant.

​

I don’t even understand and how it’s going to know it’s “growing season” if I come in, have a light on for 6-8 hours, turn it off and go home year round. This is all knew to me.

​

If anyone could explain what I should do in terms of light/diffused light I would appreciate it. Thank you!

These ones, I bought it mainly because the price was affordable and setup is easy. If I had the money I would use T5 growlights. These lights are okay though, if close enough to the plants it causes pretty nice stress coloring and compact growth.

u/boisebear21 · 1 pointr/Bonsai

Some information on my Ginseng Ficus.

Height: 18 in. (including pot) and Width: 9-10 in.

For the upcoming 9 months, I'll be living inside of an apartment and looking to start growing my Bonsai in that environment. The main concern I have is lighting, I have no southern-facing window with the only window I have being eastern-facing. This window isn't even the biggest and I'm concerned about the health of my tree if it had to live in these conditions. However, the option for a glow lamp should hopefully solve this issue. The issue in that being I have zero clues what glow lamp is optimal for my scenario nor what exact specifications I need to look for in a glow lamp. I've down small amounts of research and found you need roughly 300 nm-800 nm spectrum but am unsure if that's actually true. If anyone could provide some guidance or insight on what I should be looking for that'd be greatly appreciated.

I've attached three glow lamps I show through amazon that seemed like viable options(my price range is $50). Also, I've included an image of my bonsai tree to hopefully give you a better understanding of what I'm dealing with.

Lamp 1

Lamp 2

Lamp 3

Thanks for reading! If you have any recommendations or lamps that have worked for you in the past I'd appreciate it if you commented those below. I'm looking for lamps that can be attached to a desk as that's where my tree will be.

u/Sn0wland · 1 pointr/microgrowery

First off, I'm going to be growing in a 3' x 2' x 5' tent. I'm aiming at growing organically and as cheaply as possible. I have quite the compost pile going on and also own chickens, so I've got an abundance of free nutrients. I'd rather not buy all this stuff I see in growing videos as this is more of a budget, work with what you got kind of grow. I will buy additional nutes if I have to, though.

As for lighting, I'm leaning towards this light atm: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C59J8L2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A3OJY9E0ZY1FCH&psc=1

Still deciding on what I'll get for exhaust/filtration.

When you say cleanliness, are you talking about sanitization of tools and workspace or more about pests?

I see temperature and humidity being my biggest hurdle as I'm currently planning on growing in the garage and things can get kind of cold. May decide to grow in closet instead.

Nice. My friend wants something a bit more traditional, but I love chilis. Will have to look into that for myself. Can you actually grow them like bonsai, which is to say can you arrange, clip, and mold them like bonsai? May have found a new hobby. Also, any thoughts on this type of lamp?

Yeah your tent is the right size for flowering 4 medium-large plants or 9 smaller ones (like if you took clones of a photoperiod strain). Anyway, 3 autos have a good chance to not even fill up the whole space, which could be good for your first run not having to invest as much in lights all at once.

"Quantum board" specifically is a name brand by the company HLG that I mentioned in the previous post. They're really good and use the highest efficiency LM301B Samsung diodes but require a bit of assembly unless you want to pay a whole bunch extra. No soldering or anything though, just some screws and wire connectors This 260W kit for $350 would cover most of your tent at a full flowering brightness and spectrum. It would probably require that plus a second smaller light to completely cover the 3x3. Which could work out great if you started off with a small cheaper light during veg for the first few weeks and then add the bigger light later on.

My suggestion if you wanted to do that would either be to start with the small HLG boards you can get preassembled on amazon (two of the 65w $100 HLG65 or one of the 100W $150 HLG100) or one 150W $140 MarsHydro SP-150.
I would not suggest any of the other MarsHydro lights besides the SP-150 or SP-250. Those are their only ones with a proper heat sink and high efficiency diodes. They are not quite as efficient as the quantum boards but are fairly close and are much cheaper than any other preassembled light in this efficiency range with a decent build quality.


Another option with the same type of Samsung diodes as the HLG in another form factor are the chilled logic pucks I mentioned like this 400W 4 puck system for $600 which would absolutely completely cover the entire tent right off the bat and could even be dimmed down while plants are younger.

Got this one from Amazon a couple months ago. I've been happy with it so far. All my orchids are growing new roots and leaves, unlike last year with minimal light from a shaded East facing window.

u/NanzoMcNab · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Newbie myself. I'm happy with this one. See my post for some pics of the results so far.

https://www.amazon.com/Horticulture-Lighting-Group-High-Efficiency-Upgraded/dp/B07C59J8L2

I like that it's white light - easier to see the plants. I have a phlizon 600w LED that I initially bought and then I added the HLG 100. It only pulls 95 watts from the wall which is great. Getting close to harvest so I'm totally psyched.

u/_ChildishGrahambino · 1 pointr/houseplants

Yeah, I know they do best outside 😥 there's just nowhere for me to place it and my apartment doesn't have great windows for sunlight. I did buy a grow light, about 45 W. I'll link it below. Is this a good light? And thank you for the suggestion, I'll trim it tonight!

Howdy! I recently purchased this light: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C68N7PC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_0isQDb6R1XGPH

Is it strong enough? I definitely see notable growth in the two weeks that I’ve had it, but this fella seems like he might be getting leggy growth. I decided to move the lights even closer.

u/aerofiki · 1 pointr/houseplants

My apartment has pretty terrible lighting and with fall/winter coming on strong in the Boston area, I decided to put together a little home gardening station to help with lighting and movement of the plants for watering. I went into this with the goal of having my setup accommodate most of my small collection of plants and to allow for easy movement without having to mess with the grow lights. In the end, I decided on a cart-based design composed of the following items:

If you can't afford COBs and you want a cheap legacy LED panel that works, and you're only growing one plant, go with a ViparSpectra Reflector 450w. I can vouch for its effectiveness. 10w LED bulbs won't really do anything. Get 2 42w cool white CFLs just until you can get the panel. It's $149 at https://www.amazon.com/VIPARSPECTRA-Reflector-Spectrum-Indoor-Plants/dp/B015FLSOCE

You're probably looking for about 3-4 ounces minimum, for personal use. I grew two plants under one after vegging for only 3 weeks from seed and I ended up with about that. I didn't top one of them, or I'd have had more.

  1. Your light is kinda weak for a 4x4 ( sorry in the US so my values will be in ft) that 450w vipar VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series 450W LED Grow Light Full Spectrum for Indoor Plants Veg and Flower https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015FLSOCE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_CiZDAbMT0KHGY
    Has an actual power draw of 200w. When rating LEDS especially these cheap blurples you need to look at actual power draw. That gives you the raw wattage of the light. (I’ll explain how they get away with this clever piece of marketing later if you wish). Anyways when it comes to lighting you want to fall within a 30-50 W/sqft (watts per square foot) your 4x4 has a footprint of 16sqft to figure this out you take your actual wattage 200W and divide by 16sqft the result is 12.5 w/sqft. Also you’ll notice in the description the light is rated for a 2x2 for flowering.

  2. Hps is older tech but still king. LEDS that rival HPS are expensive but an investment worthwhile if you have the money. I’d suggest as a newbie maybe grabbing a 315Cmh or you can go with a 600w mh for veg and a 600 or 1000w HPS for flower. Only issue is you’ll have to be constantly changing bulbs and occasionally ballasts.

  3. Canna soil- is that the name? I tried googling it and I get canna terra profession plus??? Either way there’s a huge difference between canna coco and actual soils. Figure out what you have/want or I can give you the pros and cons for both.


  4. As for nutes Bro there’s like a million of them. If you can go anything Dutch and a two part ( part A is veg, part b is flower) you can keep it simple as you learn. I use raw NPK powder nutes and mix to my own strength.

  5. The rest looks good. Make sure your tent is good quality manufacturer. Your fans should oscillate (ideal) if not then no worries (mine don’t) be sure your carbon filter and fan are the same size. A 6in carbon filter requires a 6in fan. In this case if your freedom depends on it I’d suggest can fan, and get one with a higher Cfm than the volume of your tent and get an fan speed controller. (Negative Air pressure is another topic you’d be really interested in if you’re growing in a less than hospitable state.

  6. I’m on my mobile so sorry for the wall of text.

I will have one 5x5 with either setup mentioned above and two space totes using a 600w led light each. I'm trying to use all of the same brand equipment to limit the amount of manufacturers to keep up with and monitor warranties with. Any suggestions, experiences and advice welcome.

Just get this. I had shit luck trying to get the GH nutes to not burn the shit out of my outdoor plants. After using the GO box last year, I wouldn't use anything else with outdoor soil.

If you insist on the GH, usually once per week (using the GH feeding schedule from a Google search) and at about quarter strength.
