I have been experimenting with leds for quite some time, I got all kinds of small units from various makers. (FERO,HSS,Blackstar and Diamond series) I had in my room 2 x 400w hids and leds for supplemental light. I just took the 2 HIDs out of the room and will be replacing them with a FERO FeroMax 336x3w LED http://www.feroledlighting.com/336x3w-led/.
Its just starting and things might change, but for now, we got FERO FeroMax 336x3W(draws 540w) (that one is there to stay!!), my previous FERO 180 (draws about 135w),the diamond series 100W and the HSS 90W. So about 800W LEDs, I am using about 300watts less than before. The room is 4x5 and I usually have about 5-6 plants going, just enough pot for a chronic like me.
I grow in supersoil, I got good results with my first recipe(see pictures of my freshly harvested bud), now I changed a few ingredients, I think I improved it a bit. Time will tell.
To start, I got 2 Chemdog (10gallons containers) for sure and 3 k-train (will go in nursery pots, I believe they are 7gallons). Coming up is 1 Acapulco gold and 1 Jack the Ripper(only got the 1 seed so hopefully it's a female!!) I will get a few Sativas going shortly as soon as I get the seeds.
One plant in the room is about 2 weeks to harvest while the revegged one might be another month, I might move the revegged one elsewhere so we have a fresh start with the lights.
I will be busy for the boring period so I will not update this journal so often during the first month, feel free to ask questions! Thanks for watching
About the light: Just got the light in the mail yesterday(was shipped within 4 days!), the light is very well built (by far the best that I have, no mess of glue inside the light, nothing weird, just a solid clean light), fairly heavy (need some good hooks!!), and bright as fuck...also high-low intensity button that I will never use .

no I didnt use a killawatt, it's sold as a 540W actual draw.
Regarding this post on a different thread
We actually used to work with that company but we had so many problem with them. They gave us such a big head ache. We have switched to a new supplier. But yes by all means people can go there to get lights. Plus buddy did not include the price for shipping and duty into the mix..... Plus Someone would have to know what spectrums they would want. I also think that manufacture uses one less LED in each cluster then the FeroMax units. I would have to double check. I think they use one led in each cluster as an indicator light.
We at Fero LED try and give the best customer service possible. I give everyone my personal cell number[COLOR=#49535A !important] 250-661-7003and anyone can call me 24/7. I have even offered 90 day money back guarantees to most people (you included) which this company would never do.[/COLOR]

I thought this was valuable information for this thread, there you have it
what up enduroxx cool setup ya got man cant wait to see how things go for you , im subbed for sure
Little update, here is a picture of what the room looks like at the moment:
The 2 Chemdogs are doing their thing, looking good.
A week behind are the 2 K-Train (I had another K-train but it died, it was too small when I transplanted it, it was in the nursery 7gallons container, it's been replaced by either Chemdog or K-Train. We also have an Acapulco gold and a Jack the Ripper trying to make it in life)
That is about it for the new comers, here is a few shots of them ladies maturing quite well and getting really frosty.
The girl in the corner (dunno the strain, Kenny's mix from vancouver seed bank) is finishing up really nicely under the FERO, Sorry the picture arent that great but you can see she is getting frosssssssssty, another 4-5 days I figured. You can also see on the second picture in the brown container, the K-train is coming along pretty good.
The short and bushy in the laundry basket is a revegged conKushion, it's doing really considering it was mostly under 135watts of LEDs up until 10 days ago.
Here is what I believe to be one of the chemdog ( I am not home at the moment ) vegging really nicely under the FERO, it looks very healthy so far.
So yeah the plants are finishing up very nicely under my new FERO, and the new comers are looking really good as well, I cannot wait to see how well the 336x3w will do! Stay tuned!
