    Exploding Lumatek ballast

    I have a misbehaving Lumatek 400w ballast {which represents 33% of my light source}...On Friday, 3 days ago, it was not lit. I could not get any replacement ballast locally, and my other two are Maxibright. I'm not sure how old it is, possibly 3 years[?] I should have made a note.... but then it switched itself on. Perhaps my Guardian Angel was looking over me, as at 1am, /I had the urge to go downstairs and check. Lamp was lit, and then, when my back was turned, I heard 'Phut!'..... 'PHUTTT' and noticed the lamp start to fade and smoke come from the Ballast. My goodness....never ever have had anything like this happen before...I unplugged it, and it was almost too hot to handle... I carried it out to back garden, and left it out under a bucket,. It stinks. Horribly. Hopefully replacement ballast will come later on today, but I am naturally concerned about why this happened? Fire is my biggest dread, and it hasn't appeared to have blown {touch wood} any fuses. Maybe the ''Phut'' I heard was the fuse in the plug blowing. a few years ago I had help from a wonderful site called ''Hennepdesk''... [2012]..but I am strictly smalltime. Many thanks in advance, Zilla.
  2. Here is a collaborated smoke report for Chucky's Bride. I recently got together with 3 close friends and growers and this is what we came up with as a group. I am not putting my spin on this review, as the grower I wanted to really sit down with people of the same smoking experience and figure this shit out, and relay that here in the most honest and unbiased manor. Flowering time = 54 days, 90% frost, 10% clear Fed with Advanced Nutrients Jungle Juice using the Lucas formula just using the Bloom and Micro. Canna PK 13/14 added at week 5. Jar appeal - 7.5/10 It's covered in trichomes, but a bit dull in color after trimmed. Nice calyx to leaf ratio from both parents, nice dense and chunky buds. Smell - 9.5/10 I have never smelled cannabis this good, everything comes through. The cheese especially and the sharp acidic pineapple comes to the nostrils making the jar smell like an appetizer plate of cheese and fruit. I get the most compliments for it, and pass that on to esko. Taste - 8.5/10 Obviously, more cure time that 10 days comes into play here and this score with go up over the next week/month. A lot similar to the smell, more cheese on the tongue, very pleasant, lip smacking how the pineapple plays on the tongue like bubbly soda. A slight resemblance to bubble gum right at the start but as soon as the saliva flows from the intense flavor, cheese and pineapple are there for a long time. Will be a high 9 for sure. High 9/10- Holy shit cans. Not for the faint at heart. There is nothing mellow about this as you would think the cheese brings but the C99 just dominates every aspect of the high. 3.5-4 hrs before you float back down to reality. Very speedy, makes the conversation in a group almost retarded, like we were all on a mid grade cocaine buzz. When you smoke around the one gram mark too yourself, things get pretty interesting. Awesome for making music, exercise, partying, depression, and a small dose is great for a wake n bake. Just not too much Final Grade : 8.75/10 Kept the cut, she's a keeper. Cheers. RM
  3. So mrs owes me a trip to the netherlands (smoke holiday) I know amsterdam has much to offer smoke wise... But also with culture..... Museums....blah blah. Do I tell her book amsterdam ? Or Where else in the netherlands can we visit thats good for smoke choice and other cultural activities, so avoiding the normal tourists and tourist traps ? Really like to hear from the dutch folk. Anyone wants to meet up and be our guide for a few hours ? Greatly appreciated. Shame whazzup isnt around as i remember the days when opengrow meets happened quite often.....can anyone hook me up to him....SANNIE ? Regards Hillcrest
  4. Hi everybody ! After a shameful 2/8 germing attempt, I got 2 femelles of this strain. Both were planted in plain dirt, fed with compost tea, clouds made most of the watering work for me :>. Flowered outside with a great view on the caledonian lagoon and salty conditions. I got 2 phénos out of that : - n°1 : gorgeous and vigorous plant. Reacts very well to topping, moderate stretch (*2/2,5). Topped once @ 2 weeks of growth, got into flowering 2 weeks later, gave me 6 beautiful 30 cm colas packed with dense buds covered by trichomes. Very smelly, fresh fruit with spicy notes, stealth is not one of her qualities. Good yielder for a 8,5 weeker. n°2 : very cute tiny plant not vigorous at all. Reacts well to topping to. Almost no stretch. With the same treatment as the other (topped @ w2 etc) I got like 10 thin branches with small round kindafluffy buds on them. Not-as-much trich-covered as n°1, but still shiny stuff. Very stealthy but incredibly nice smell, very floral and fruity ; smells like a flower should smell, and not like a dealer's stairwell or a candy box. Small yielder, 7,5 weeks. Get some nice blue/purplish/copper coloration during her last week. Some cuttings were on the go (4w fl) when I had to choose my keeper. Same conditions, but one-bud style ; they looked pretty much the same exept n°1 was a bit bigger and A LOT smellier. At that point with 10 days of curing, n°1 was kind of fruity, but with earty/Hashy aftertones on it. A nice complex taste, but not that powerful. Strong buzz, not really in the head, but not a creeper too. The kind of stuff that turns you into a moron (if you're not one already). n°2 was all fruit/candy, something like dragibus, but not well-defined, and a little rough on the throat. Very dense and powerful taste though. More a head high, but kinda light, active and creative, really fun. I decided to keep n°2. I don't know why. n°1 was a (way) larger yielder, stronger, with a more subtle and enjoyable taste. But I was looking for a total fruity C99 dom pheno, and I had a hunch. And my instinct is awesome. So in the end I made the right choice. Here are the (mainly) smoke reports for the 2 phenos : N°1 Flowering time : 8,5 w Visual aspect : pale green coverend by frost. Gets a little brown with the curing process Yield : who cares ??? Bag appeal : who cares ??? Smell : fruit (cantaloupe, peach, watermelon) and hash (more the morrocan type than the afghan type, ya see ?). Doesn't really evolve with the cure. Curiously not so strong. Taste (weeks of curing) : (2) Nice complex taste, a mix of fresh fruits with hash/earthy/skunky end on the exhale. Surprising and exciting combination. Very smooth. (4) Kinda the same (6 and more) Goes more and more on the earthy skunk side. But not like this side becomes stronger, more like the fruity side vanishes slowly. At 10 weeks it has become an ordinary skunk/indica hybrid. High : pretty strong stuff, with a nice balanced high. Becomes more a creeper as it cures. Keeper : yes, as an all around weed. Lacks some personality for my taste. N°2 Flowering time : 7,5 w Visual aspect : different greens, some blue, purple and rust/copper (as a living plant). Cutest and kawaiiest plant I've ever grown. Dense buds when the plant is not topped. Turns almost brown with curing (pic at the top taken @ 13w of curing). Yield : who cares ??? Bag appeal : who cares ??? Smell : fruit. And candy. And fruit. A lot of different ones. Was mistaken for Bubblegum 2 days ago. Taste (weeks of curing) : (2) ultra-pungent fruity candy, very sugary, but kinda rough, you can't really tell what you're dealing with exactly (4) The buds lose the sugary thing and get really strong exotic and floral flavours, it tastes like guava, papya, or jambolan. Strong but fresh and not sugar-like tropical fruit. Not harsh at all. (6 and more) : The same, but with a clear and strong (finally ! ) pineapple taste at the beginning of the exhale. A little of mango with that too. Stops evolving @ 3 months of cure and stabilizes in that overdelicious state. High : gets stronger with the cure, to become stronger than n°1. Very pleasant high, active but not racy, very social, great for parties, playing cards, music etc. Happy funky weed. Keeper : Hell Yeah ! I had a friend of mine try the 2 phenos. I started with n°1, telling him it was the not good one. He told me that he had never seen anything bad coming from me. I answered "I did not say it's bad, I said it's not good". He lighted the joint, and after 3 hits he told me to stop fucking around. A couple hours after that I had him taste n°2, telling him "now you're gonna get why I said the other one was not good". One hit was enough. I was looking for a cute fast fruity small plant with a sativa like high. Got it ! Thanks a lot E$ko, and congrats ! I've only had marvellous feedback from that one ! Sorry no good pics
