Just purchased a 500w Lighthouse Blackstar LED UV - Model. I already have a 1000W MH and a 1000W HPS. Just transplanted a bunch of seedlings (fem wonder woman and fem jock horror) over the past 2 days into 5gal buckets with holes for drainage. Split 2 of each under the LED last night, and 3 WW and 2 JH under the MH. Now it is off to the races to see what exactly the difference is b/t LED and HID with the other Variables being the same.
Here are some pics from this morning (lights on all night)...Again, yellow pipe cleaner = Jock Horror Seedling, no pipe cleaner = wonder woman. I just got a clear plastic container to put over the seedling cups and mat, that seems to have made a real difference. The Jocks started to come to the party, so I suspect they need a higher temperature for germination. The were soaked on Monday pm(11/, and in soil by Wednesday AM (11/10). I have a bootleg clone which I probably f'ed up big time, however
