See this guy, growing his own, to treat parkinson's symptoms. He was caught and sent to court, do you know what he did wrong, and why he was caught? 

These thought experiments will help you stay safe when growing, know what mistakes these guys make, so you don't make them!

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.
