I plan to make a rack of them very similar to a orca-image-1507838165558.jpg_1507838165948.jpeg 20171013_190322.jpg cob cxb build. Just with cheap diode bulbs modded slightly. And add them to my array. (I found a walmart unloading globe 10w 800 lumen leds for .50 cents and in canada thats a fucking steal so i bought 8 and gonna go buy more and some bathroom/vanity fixtures to hold them. Just wanted to test them out before pulling the trigger.)

    For genetics im runnin 1 dinafen blue cheese 1 ultra funny bag seed i got from this terriblw weed grown by a woman who flowered with mh bulbs lol.1 blueberry clone we had this summer spit out a seed so i popped that little guy too.

    The only one worth worrying about is the blue cheese. The other 2 are just for kicks honestly, im a strain hunter at heart so i cant help but try a seed out but im not hoping for a high times winners here.

    Shooting for 1 gram per watt anything after is just a bonus.

    Running green planet medi one and the full line to boot. And the odd shot of thrive alive green. Venting throu a 4 inch exhaust at light level and a 20 in box fan for circ. Which is honestly a bit overkill but i dont have any small stuff. I used to grow with 1000w of cfl lol.

    For soil there in a 50/50 soiless/coco mix for now, i plan on growing in 3 parts promix 1 part coco

    Keep in mind the title says ghetto and i do have certain conditions that i like to keep to as far as nutes and soil but otherwise this is a cheap grow. I want the best bang for no buck.

    All the cfls are left over from other grows, same with duct fans, fans heat mat soil nutes and a few other things, i used the heat blanket out of the survival kit in the back of my car for mylar lol. Broken bbq salvaged stainless steel shroud for a reflector and a batthroom vanity to hold my led and cfls.

    Between the cfls and the seed im at like $15

    Precisely what it is lol! Another update. Got a deal on 10w leds ($0.50 each) bought 14 and 3 bath vanity lights for $10 lmao. Haf 2 sockets laying around im getting a average of 30k lumens @12 inches. Fighting with lockout from not paying attention to feeding and overloading with molasses (cal mag) they hate life right now and are so slow for there age. But all is well. New area new challenges. I battlibg heat but seam to have solved that with the removal of the heat mat and cfls. Im using half the wattage as the cfls and am reading 2k more lumens. I think the major difference is the projection of thw leds- they have little to no spread but placed closely together thry form a penatrating amount of light. Hopefully ill see improvements soon. Ive dropped avg temps down 4 celsius and improved light and fingers crossed feeding is dialed in. 50/50 coco/tripple mix. Not happy with how dependant the plant is on the food/calmag compared to soil 20171021_185220.jpg 20171021_185224.jpg 20171021_185220.jpg 20171021_185224.jpg 20171021_185237.jpg

    20171125_214347.jpg 24 hrs after mammoth
    20171126_170327.jpg
    48 hrs and tied down again. Im trying to make the most of my length and width. The rest of the pics are also from today. Stem and branch strength is unreal. I usually snap one or two by now but thwyre so rugged. Cant wait to see how mammoth improves on that. 2 days ago i incorporated the mammtoth to my regular week 8 veg feeding and today i flushed the medium with just water and mammoth
