Thanks Buck. I could care less what anyone chooses to grow with. But if they're interested in expanding they're knowledge then they can look at LED or Induction as an energy saving alternative to HID. If it's induction they choose to go with then know the differences between phosphors and what it means to our plants.
Hey Spiff: I came across this video that might help you get a better perspective as to height spacing on the 100 & 200-PARs

What's truly fucked is another bud, OG who runs a 20K watt HPS grow that drops $1,500 every 3-4 months on Eye-Hortilux who would NOT change anything since he's happy with the yields and it was clockwork. Then his 'buddy' who owns the hydro shop where for the last 10 years he buys everything, convinces him to drop $12K to switch to a new nutrient line from Australia and get off the Canna nutes that has always worked predictably well.

The same 'buddy' who convinced him to switch his Canna nutes was the same one who talked shit about Inda-Gro, comparing them to LED panels which convinced him to just stay on Eye-Hortilux for the last two years. There is no doubt now that his 'buddy' has been regularly hosing him for going on 10 years. Lamp replacement is a cash cow that the hydroshops, who are just in it for the profit, will not easily give up. OG called me last night to vent and tell me he's done ever going back in that store again. He already knows what Inda-Gro and Canna can predictably yield for a fuck of a lot less money. Anyone wanna buy 55 gal of nutes?

Hey Chaz, I saw that video a few days ago. its a hard call by watching the vid tho, because i dont have first hand knowledge of how intense the 100w is vs the 200w. there's also the differences in photosynthetic ability (ie: saturation limit) between lettuce and cannabis. also higher temps boost plant metabolism, and so at 85F the plant can take more intense light than at 75F.

i know this isn't the forum for nute talk, but i have to agree, Canna nutes are amazing. I turned a friend on to them a few years back and his yield upped by almost 40% on the first run with them, and these were on plants that he had been breeding/growing for the past 25 years - he knew them very well and basically just followed the canna feeding schedule. when i subsequently took over my own growing i went straight to canna/biocanna, full line. Canna Boost is 115$/liter around here, and worth every cent! i showed pics of my ladies in bloom to the friend that supplied the clones, and he was floored! he thought that they were 2 weeks ahead of where they really are! canna and inda-gro is an amazing recipe indeed.

@Chaz Yeh man its not hard to figure out the maths lol im happy if they are the equivalent to a 400w hps... proofs in the pud tho and you seem to have got over the GPW... Well done buddy i wanna see some SOG plants done..

@Buck: care to substantiate your opinion regarding Canna Boost? i researched on many forums before buying my last liter of it, just to be sure that it was still high in the regard of others as well... and it was. and here you come, talking about some stuff that i've never heard of, and that no store near me has ever heard of, and you claim that is better than something that is virtually synonymous with growing quality herb...
so i did a little research, and i found this YouTube video
where the guy feels so solidly about the product (called Finisher here, apparently) that he has to read everything that he has to say about it off of his laptop screen. so then i go to the site plugged in the vid, and use the store locator. it seems that not a single store in Oregon (where I live) sells their stuff. Pretty sad considering that Oregon grows some of the best (in my opinion, THE BEST) herb in the US, and doesn't have a store that offers a single product out of their line up.
I will agree that Cannazym isn't as good as Hygrozyme - even Canna acknowledges that. But beyond that, Canna is the shit. Period.
