This is my first grow. I have 12 plants about to be harvested. They look great. I didn't know that Miracle Grow was shunned, that is what mine are planted in. Before I knew about forums I just went to Lowe's and bought what I thought was the good stuff. Wish me well.
I have read that the 30x and 60x Jewelers loupe are what to have. I have a 10x , not strong enough. The 30x dia. is I think 21 mm. and the 60x is really small. I just found a 40X loupe with a LED light That is 1 inch (25mm) in dia. for $9.99 I will get it Monday. I think that will be great.
I just got a 19 inch bowl trimmer the extra blades come in a set of 4, 2 are serrated and 2 are smooth. The replacement blades cost $22.00 for the 4 on Amazon. I didn't want to find out the hard way how long they last.
