extraction, fans, hints, intake, Learning, size, tips -

Fan speeds, CFM, m3/hr, rpm....blah blah blah it's a headache waiting to happen. Great if you know what they all mean and how they apply to your grow room, I pity those lot who are new to the game and then they've got to get their heads round complex calculations before they can whip out the dosh for any fan.  It's important to get this right though, so it's better to sit down with a cup of tea and get your pencil and paper out (you can get your colouring pens out too if you want to jazz it up)...

Bigger Yields, grow room, hints, hydroponics, Learning, Nutrients, Quality Yields, tips -

Nope, the best growers don't dress up like Gene Simmons and go and belt one out at the karaoke on a Saturday night at the Dog and Gun. Nor do they go around kissing their fellow growers (some might...) but generally it's not this that makes them the cream of the crop when it comes to cultivation.
