3 ways he could have been sussed...loud constant exraction...smell (no mention of a filter in his 'sophistacated setup' lol anything more than a lightbulb 😉 & heat...garages are not the best especially with the nosey neighbour brigade...

Oh and the fact its Stoke, lol...everyone in Stoke knows what weed smells like ?

43 plants is a lot, probably breaking rule number 2, and 3, but there is one main factor that fucked him 😉

exactly man! you're not a criminal for growing, but youre a criminal if you steal the electricity. Unsafe as fuck too. Stupidness man, if he was just a Percy Grower, I doubt he would have needed to steal the leccy

its not worth it in the long run mate. just easier and safer to pay for it, still a fraction of the price of buying weed

Unless you have a dual rate electricity meter, it doesn't matter to you 😉

I dunno, 43 plants and I quote 'A sophisticated setup' must have been enough usage for him to do that...6 to 8 600w HPS on 18/6 plus associated extract/tube heating/fans...£15 a day ish on top of existing...£450 a month, £1350 ish on the grow

If your electric meter has 2 readings (dual rate) and the night switch is connected & working, yes...If only a single rate meter...maybe but only if you're on a split tarriff. Do you have storage heating ? usually the reason for a dual rate meter...

your lights aint running at night?

And the article said he only had 2 tents? Might have been  a flowering tent with a few in, veg tent with a few in, and some cuts for his next crop for all we know lol. They hype these things. Can't fit a lot of flowering in plants in 2 tents, and if he is using it for extracts, then he will need a lot too. 

End of the day its a plant, they don't mention any evidence of supplying? So it seems to be a legit percy grow other than the leccy being nicked

'A sophisticated setup'

hydro is seen as a sophisticated set up mate, any thing more than pots of soil can be. With an auto temp monitor like an ecotech box, sophisticated 😉 They really do big these things up to make them seem more legit, like they are actually doing a good thing.
