Gonna give it another try, some advice.
    #679056 - 07/24/13 07:33 AM (3 years, 4 months ago)

Hey everybody,

I'm looking to start my 3rd Grow attempt and had a few questions.
I first grow was a success for a beginner I believe. On my second grow attempt though I had massive failure!!
I tried to go too big I think and I got complacent and being busy with work and other aspects of life I found myself struggling to look after my crop, and harvested very little lol, which I believe hermied, since I had lots of seeds in the bud I did harvest.


Its been about 2 years since then and I'm thinking of starting up again.

First question:

If my last crop went hermie, there would be pollen all throughout my growtent, right?
Whats the best way to clean/treat my tent to get all the pollen out so as not to pollinate future crops?

Second Question:

I switched to a cooltube during my first grow, as I was growing in summer and struggling to keep the temps down. Because we are in the middle of winter for now, would I be better off just using the plain white reflector? I don't know if its just me, but it seems to me that the silver cooltube fitting puts out less light.

I would be happy to hear from you guys and find out what you think.

Cheers!

If there is pollen in the tent from 2 yeas ago it's long dead.

If you feel the plants get more light with the white reflector and you can keeps your temps down then go ahead and use it.

Isn't "fresh"  pollen only viable for 3 days or so?

Yeah about a week. You can also kill it or make it unusable by getting it wet.
