    I'm in for a LED log. A lot of haters, basically none with any experience though.

    Good luck, and I'll be watching.

    Thanks

    All of my led panels are home made. I have learned a lot so far the major draw back is the wave length of the red leds it does not allow for flowering. I use 740nm now the best flowering occurs in the far red about 760-800nm. I am currently trying to get some made in china if I can then leds will finally work for the flowering cycle. As far as vegging great results. Lets see if the Mod allows my crop pictures to be posted.

    There is more than one, two, or even three light wavelengths that are 100% necessary to grow with LED's. More information will have to be researched for a monster yield. LED's aren't my thing.. so it is up to you to figure it out.

    i did a lot of led research, and decided that im not going to leds until i get a cfl system working. that way i can master the hydro and timing stuff. then go back and test hps vs cfl vs led on power usage over yeild. withj clones.

    bottom line, i wanna try leds. but dont wanna order a panel, and dont have my soder gun.
    will see after this harvest.

    That's all been done, dude.

    It has been proven that CFL's don't produce anything near what a HID can with the same amount of time.

    LED's will be more efficient than the HID's in terms of power consumption. Still, not even touching the HID's in the same time-frame.

    All in all, nothing beats HID's.

    Don't get me wrong, do your thing. If it is the information you are looking for then don't waste the time or money.

    READ!

    i'm growing with leds
    first grow and i'm a noob
    should start a journal

    I bought a 45 watt led panel $130
    i've vegged for 2 weeks just with that lead panel and i must say the seedlings look amazing ...stocky too
    i'm gonna flower with 3 42 watt cfl's and that lead panel

    good luck with your grow :)

    if my grow goes well i might think about making my own led panel

    Hell yea!!! Thats what I'm talking about! Welcome to the CFL area of RIU.. I think it's cool as hell you added LED's with CFL's cuz I think that's the future of micro growing! I can't wait to see how it turns out cuz I'm planing on getting some LED's for side lighting since the run so cool I could line the bottom half of the walls in my cab without burning my girls since I pack em in so close to each other.... Good Luck my friend and come stop by my threads and let me know what you think

    I do believe HID is the only way to go for speed of growth and size of flower off of flouresants i have gotten huge amount of tricome production though
