Trying out Philips 942 t9 veg bulbs thru flower.
Pic is 20 days from flip
let me know how it works for you was looking at getting one that was cheap and building a mother/veg tent with one.
Day 12 of 12/12
Doing a little defo every few days until a good strip at day 21 and just want to show pheno #1. She is my most consistent plant, best growth pattern and looks like she will have a good number of bud sites.
I also looked at the difference of tied vs untied and how that effects growth patterns. I will discuss this more a little later.
As I said lite defo at the present, Untied
I think this is a cool pic, I can see candles attached to it,
Arial shot from the blimp!
Something noticed is the plants gravitation to the lamp, since I untied them last week. I wanted to let the stems off the main branches themselves to stretch some toward the lamps before I tied them back to do a good defo. They have all steadily grown toward the lamps and just becoming a mass of plant material.
11/28 #4 tied before being untied from the screen with defo
12/4 #4 untied and prior to defo
#4 Untied and after lite defo.
So we will be tying the ladies back to the screen this week, give them a good spread.
I went back and looked at my notes and some pics from the G13 grow and I had done the same thing on about the same schedule as now. The only difference is the Indica/Sativa difference, which is very noticeable.
Day 13 of 12/12
As I stated last post, this AM we pulled the plants from the tent and tied the rest of the plants back to the screen, gave them a good spread, getting them in the flower mode. Only showing one plant but did the same to each of the 5 plants.

#5 same view following tie back

After the tie back from the blimp, was able to move the plants closer to the lamps by moving the pot's 2 inches closer to the lamp. The big difference was being able to tilt the screens in again a few inches more towards the lamp after tie back. I had them tilted way back to keep the buds away from the lamps.
Back in the ol' 4x4
I am liking what I am seeing, not yet the second week of 12/12 getting decent stretch, and good fill in.
1 week in flower, 18/6>12/12, choc mint/blue dream
I have posted flowers grown under the Phillips 315 LEC 3100k and said they were frostier than with the Hortilux 600Super Hps alone.
And showed that it works as a finishing bulb for the last two weeks and that it is a great supplemental lamp to the hps.
The colors and smells and flavors were very pronounced and the plants stayed greener through finish.
Well the difference may be more negligible than I thought. I have been growing with only the 600 super hps and the plants have been equally frosty and even more potent on average for months of weekly and bi weekly harvests.
Here is a Black Widow x Blue Lemon Thai flowered under only the Hortilux 600 Super Hps.
She smells pungent and fruity. And she is very sticky.
Now this is nice..
So far they work great . I can pass my vendors info if you are on alibaba they axcept paypal.
i was looking at that site but did not know if they were any good
Each? Great deal if that is the case!
May have missed where you got them but would like to see what all they have.
I just started 4x white fire og clones under my 315 cmh in a sun system remote reflector with prism lighting science ballast.
This is a test run, two of the wifi og's are in RDWC , two of them are in organic recycled soil, doing a side by side taste comparison.
Plan to get results tested with a friends mydx tester, most likely will publish results.
Using a phillips CDM 4k bulb.
Hey Yoda, anything I've seen/read on that mydx unit claims it's bogus. Basically uses a database of known strains and applies it to the sample.
Has your friend verified the results of the mydx unit against proper lab tests to see how accurate the results are?
I'd buy a unit in a second if it were legit and scientifically sound but those units raise my BS detector flags...
They say themselves that thc is detected. But with a 20% margin of error on how much. Lol.
Reasonable testing of this sort of thing is within 2-3% accurate. And results are repeatable.
Be funny to see how many different results the same bud can give.
I forgot the link
Looks like they've made some progress in the last couple of years since they introduced it, but not quite there yet. Some interesting work they're doing but 20% variance is a little much for the price they're charging. Power to them, they seem to have been able to get customers to pay for their product while it's being developed, brilliant, if you're not a customer - lol
Day 14 flower:
Good job, tough to keep an even canopy growing an indica and sativa together.
Yeah i hear that, the last results i got from him were pretty accurate from what i expected but due to stupid colorado laws i legally cannot get my buds tested unless i own a dispensary so honestly i do not know, it's the only resource i can get in this state to get my buds tested unfortunately.
