Clean your gear!

I'm sure this is a no-brainer for most people, but I thought I'd toss up a refresher for everyone and remind you to make sure you clean your gear between grows! Fungus spores, insect eggs, and bacteria/viruses are a hell of a lot better at surviving than we are, so it's important to nuke them into oblivion before re-using your stuff. No sense infecting your new crop with whatever may have afflicted the last one. Prevention is always the best medicine, and this is a very good way to start.

Vacuum/scrub/wash your tent, pots, catch pans, instrumentation, fan and C-filter/pre-filter (especially the pre-filter) lights (carefully), etc... basically anything you used in the last grow. If you're growing inside, vacuum the shit out of everything. Twice. And if you're like me and had a pollen incident, take a few extra minutes (or hours) to make sure you've scrubbed everything down as thoroughly as possible... pollen is persistent. 

I use a dilute water/bleach mix for most things, since bleach is hardcore AF and kills everything. Smells bad/corrosive though. I like the typical Lysol-type cleaners as well.

Scrub a dub

Happy growing!

Life's a garden...dig it.

@macky

Haha not likely. You are definitely the man in that department. Every little bit helps though 😉 

I also should mention that picture is taken outside because I don't really have a large enough washing area in my small house. Definitely best to clean inside though if you have the space, away from dust and debris.
