    Nutrifield Coco/perlite4 . 6-8 per light crammed . Lollipop like a beast. Defoliate end of week 2. I am feeding Every day .. 2 gallons a day. It is a mess I wish I didn't sign up for. But because they were so over vegged and beast . The numbers are going to be insane. Sealed environment , no fresh air. 79degrees, 50% humidity. 1500 ppm co2. 5x5.5 spread . Double ended will help. ( I only have a couple I haven't switched whole room to de) .

    Run DE at 1150W for absolute best umol/W and spectrum, this from the Gavita mfr rep. It's quite a bit more efficient than single ended.

    I'm still learning how to navigate this site also-----here's how I looked up all of your threads.
    1) click on your handle----up comes your profile page----then click on your handle again-----click on "postings"-----scroll down to the bottom of that page----in small letters you'll see "threads by handle name"---by clicking on that, up comes your thread list-----you can select the thread you want to reference, go up to the menu bar and copy that url------paste it in another thread.

    I assume many others here share in my frustration.

    It seems that every time someone makes a claim like that, we get "I don't take pictures" or "lost them".

    I very familiar with what a 2/1k looks like and the only way I would ever believe 4/1k is if I manicured, dryed, and weighted. I 've never pulled 3/1k----would love to see it----but still haven't.

    I am overly confident that if I don't fuck anything up this batch I will be well into the 3s. I didnt leave anything out. I did everything to the best of my ability and can say this is the first run in a long time that I am PROUD of. I gave every bit of effort possible and there are no loose ends so far. If the ethos collective can pull 4-5 per lamp.. I know that I can smash 3. Not to mention... I damn near did it with the 4 lighter when I had no fucking clue what I was doing. Before I was growing in sunshine following an advanced nutes feeding chart never checking my runoff lol.. So I was smashing 2.5 per lamp, blind for the most part. Now I'm watching my runoff like a hawk , there no yellow leaves , no burn, no retard plants. it is a perfect batch

    I can't run 1150 because I am 30
    Inches off the canopy this run. The gavita and the nanolux de are in 1000 watt mode

    I have pictures . tell me how to delete the exif and safely post them and I will do so. I want everyone to know that the numbers are doable so they can think outside the box on how to step up there game! 4x4 trays are a thing of the past!

    Sorry, I'm no computer wizard-----what is exif? What has changed about "safety" since all those other pics were posted.

    Perhaps some one else understands the exif concern?

    I hear ya. I guess the DE doesn't get more umol/W @1150W, but I do clearly remember him saying the spectrum shift was beneficial and there was no sacrifice in lifetime performance. Here's the chart;

    Please don't be a douche. I am taking pics off of my phone. If you put them from a phone to a computer there is bullshit that shows the number and who took the photo and when . And even the location I think if your location services are on. I am a farmer too not a computer genius . My laptop barely works and is from like 2004. I used to have a thing on there that would delete all the "exif files" is what the program calls it . I tried to upload a few pics from the last run the last time some douche called me a liar and it said "cannot delete exif" . If you right click the photo and go to properties it will show all the info I do not want to disclose .i do not believe it would be wise to post such photos and give the five oh directions to my location . Because we all know they watch this shit. With that being said. I probably am full of shit and probably grow with a 13w cfl in a closet

    This website strips 'metadata tags' from photos uploaded here. Turn off the location setting on your phone when taking pics so it can't upload 'geotag' info to your pics.

    How sure are you of that ? @a mongo frog do you know if it is safe to post pics from your phone?

    What about iCloud does that shit save anything? I have one of those fancy iPhones so I know it isn't the safest

    Not sure. I've only posted pics from lap top. I guess depends on what the word safe means. I'm sure you have your paper work in check. I wouldn't worry a second.

    My paperwork is in check but I've had the man through my house once before. I would rather not have it happen again .

    A lot of people think that warmer is better. But I start to see an upward leaf curl and some heat stress at anything higher than 80 degrees. I have grown in the 80s before when I didn't have another option and I felt like my bag appeal wasn't as nice . I could be wrong though. But I don't believe you suffer yield at 78-79

    @racerboy71 is it safe to post pics from your phone ? Does the site delete all the tracking stuff?
    Thank you sir

    Same here. Paperwork or not, it's never a great experience.

    I am using the nanolux de with the Phillips bulb. Is that chart saying that's a better reading than the gavita with the gavita bulb? my gavita looks brighter to the eye by far , it's strange .

    You say you keep your lights pretty close to the canopy. If so, your leaf surface temperatures are likely to put you in the ideal range for good CO² takeup. It's the leaf surface temperature that's the important measure, not air temperature. If an air temp in the high seventies is what works, I'd say don't fix it.
