First Thoughts

I did not place it inside the unit, however I would prefer to as that is the source.

I’m not sure if placing it inside would do any harm to the plant, if someone has any experience or knowledge I’d greatly appreciate it!

Thanks!

Hi @Rich and @kirk,

From what I’ve read on other forums and heard from our Horticulturist @Stephen you should not put the ONA in the same space as the plant (i.e. don’t put the ONA in the Grobo One). It apparently changes the taste of the bud when you consume it

Regards,

Chris.

Hi. Any idea why there are odor issues? Isn’t the Grobo an odorless unit? Thanks

Quick question the fluid glass doesn’t turn completely see through when you hit the app button correct? It just changes the color to see it better or is my glass supposed to turn clear like the Mercedes Or Bentley Windows? Sorry if dumb question I just got my grobo Wednesday

Hi chris. My glass has the lights inside change color which turns the glass translucent. It’s a red hue.

My war head seeds I think have just germinated not sure I’m scared to pull the coco pod and Check … so what I did was Incase it doesnt pop since they are bag seeds from various strains I bought (because I ordered genetics way to late) I popped some trap stars seeds to replace that Incase the war head seeds does t germ…

How did youndeal with your light leakage and has the light got in during lights off?

I have a bunch of seeds too that have been hit and miss. Next grow will be a true north seed bank grow seed. But that’s 2 months away lol

I have slight light leakage o n the right side. Right side front etc. I haven’t applied electricL tape yet like some people but it’s in my office and no kids so I dont need to so anything. If it’s too bright or we feel will attract attention to the room we throw a blanket over the front (like when shaw came).
I am not concerned with the light atm. Tbh my two concerns will be smell and noise when I have 2 side by side. To prevent smell I bought that compound we posted about earlier and a small 450 sq ft servicing hepa filter which will benefit us also as we have 2 dogs.
Noise wise the unit is like 4 of my computers and I run high end gaming rigs so it took a bit getting used to that. Honestly no complaints though. Plant is healthy and I haven’t spent more then 30 mins on ot since day 1 of the grow

Hey @chris_barfield

I asked the question about light leaking into the Grobo a while ago. Here’s the answer I got from @Chris

I see have you used the compound yet? And also what is the heap filter you mentioned? I haven’t been bothered by the noise just it’s in the living room alongside the tv and sound bars… I’m not concerned with how much light emitted I was just worried about the light getting and causing hermi during flowering… but @Azuri answered that!!

Just for conversation what would happen if put two seeds in there ? Would the plants still grow but yield less since sharing nutrients or would I consume nutrients at a faster rate ? Is there way to train the plants for two at a time like scrog or trellis net? Just wondering becuase I kind of wish I put the trapstar seeds inside ugh lol

And yes I do know it’s designed for one but just wondering what would happen or any of the devs have tried this @Stephen

Morning chris_barfield,

In my experience, one will dominate the other, preventing any type of real harvest of two strains in one Grobo. I’d stick with one plant at a time.

Hey @chris_barfield

Sorry not to hijack your reply I can offer some insight and some if this knowledge is from @Stephen I believe.

Tip #1
Use the compound wisely it’s very strong so don’t put it inside the Grobo. It can impact the taste of your crop.

Tip #2
Don’t insert your Grobo charcoal filter in the grobo until your plant starts to emit odor. You should be able to make it through the veg state before you need a filter. This should extend the filter life a bit.

Hi @chris_barfield
I purchased a bionaire air purifier for the upstairs floor from Costco for 175. It arrives today so I’ll let you know how I like it in conjunction with the grobo and how it handles the smell.
Also picked up the Ona Pro Gel off Amazon for 24$ along with a little oz weight scale for like 15. Now I just need a lap sifter for when I do mycutting

Nice I’m
Going to look into it and darn @Azuri I threw the carbon filter in there during setup cuz it asked me too… I’m assuming the carbon filter wouldn’t really work to well anyway since I know a lot of the units have light leak which = smell
Leaks since there’s openings?

@chris_barfieldsomeone had used electrical tape on their grobo and it seemed to work in the light situation but I am fairly confident smell will come through regards

@chris_barfield I’ve grown hydro before so I’m not going to sugarcoat it, I’m sure the Grobo will contain “some” smell. The moment you open the Grobo which will be often the woft will come out. Results will varry from strain to strain and expect the strongest smell to be released when you do the actual cutting/harvest. You can mask, odor eliminate and exhaust all you want a trained nose will know, lol.

My experience might be totaly inflated since I’ve never grown only 1 plant at a time until now inside an actual grow box. I’m sure @Rich can chime in since he’s close to harvesting and how well things worked out masking odor.
