    Yesterday I travelled down to Ventura CA for a clubs frag swap. For a club it was a really good event. I came home with these frags plus the only Dendros that were there. I spent a total of $80 and got all this. The dendros I picked up were $15 dollars a head. I thought that was a pretty good price. The frag farmer that brought them for me (set up through pm on another site) said lots of people were wanting them, it was great of him to hold them for me. Some of the stuff there was buy one get one. I will post a pic of my dendros when they open back up. They were nice and open this morning but I fed them just before taking pics so now I need to wait. Also the colors are a lot more intense when the actinics are on, but due to the fact I need to turn them off to take pics with my camera they dont look as good as in person. My camera washes everything out in blue if I leave the actinics on. I would like to get a nice digital camera soon rather than the cheap one I have now, but that will have to wait.

    Thanks, I thought it a pretty good score considering those 7 frags only cost me $50. And I paid $30 for my dendro. Well worth the drive. I cant wait until next year. I donated some frags to our local club that had a booth there also. From what I hear our club made a couple hundred dollars also.

    Thanks, that was the second one I bought, I believe that is a blue millipora. The guy gave me the tall green one ( id?) in the middle for free when I bought it. Really beautiful under actinics. If only I had a good camera.
