In every issue of Rosebud Magazine, we check out some awesome new grow gear and share our finds with you. If you’re growing indoors, outdoors, in soil, or hydroponically, these pieces of gardening equipment can help you get the job done right.

KING ME! WITH CHECKERBOARD LIGHTING

Growers who want to keep their power bills down but get more yield for the same amount of wattage used are making the jump to checkerboard lighting – and winning. Smart growers who value their time know the value of equipment that is going to work right the first time and every time, making PurGro’s 1K4 Flip the intelligent choice in flip-flop digital lighting. The 1K4 offers the ability to run your lights checkerboard style versus conventional two-rooms-per-ballast relayed configurations.

The 1K4 comes equipped with four 1,000-watt dimmable digital ballasts securely and safely built right into a central fan-cooled unit. The unit also houses the relay device. Simply connect to a 240-volt 30-amp power source for the ballasts, and you can use the two 110/120-volt trigger wires to control how long the ballasts run for, and the second trigger for when and how often they flip. It also has built-in stealth capabilities, making this a great all-in-one option for grow lighting.

DOSE HERE, DOSE THERE, DOSE ANYWHERE!

Looking to spend less time worrying about nutrient levels and pH? The Etherdose Duo from Robomatic allows you to accu-rately monitor and control your TDS/EC and pH levels from anywhere you can access your network — this means via laptop, mobile phone, tablet or whatever device you’re using these days.

If you are running a recirculating hydroponic reservoir, or want to monitor larger batches of nutrient solution for drain-to-waste applications, and just can’t (or don’t want to) be there all the time, this could be the nutrient management solu-tion for you.

For the cost, having peristaltic pumps that are accurate to 1 mL, raise and lower your pH when necessary, and can add nu-trients from a stock solution as they become depleted — all while allowing you both access to this information and the ability to change it from afar — is invaluable. Robomatic also claims that synching up for the first time is easy and effortless; no crash course in networking required.

What would you do with the extra time you gain? Maybe take that weekend getaway you have been dreaming about? Or maybe just grow more!

LIGHT UP THE COMPETITION

The UNO™ air-cooled light reflector from Advanced Grow Gear® is a true triathlete, taking first place for cooling, light spread and durability. This is a serious reflector developed for large-scale commercial growing operations where efficient cooling without compromising light coverage is essential.

Compared to other larger-diameter air-cooled reflectors, the UNO is absolutely unbeatable when it comes to a wide foot-print of even and intense light distribution.

The UNO is the big boy in its class. Outside you’ll find a tough-as-nails and highly reflective powder coat finish, while the in-side shines very bright and diffuses light perfectly with a specular aluminum insert. Naturally, the UNO accommodates common 1000- and 600-watt HPS and most MH lamps, while making maintenance and cleaning a breeze with the locking tempered glass lens.

MSRP: $239
