    Hi all you 600w lovers. I am fairly new to my 600, and had some fun times with my 400, and also had some fun times on the 400watt club thread.

    So here is one for anyone with a 600watt (or there or there abouts.) Feel free to posts your pics of your set up, your girls, your seeds, your harvest, your suggestions.

    This thread is for lovers of peace and weed, so no fighting please, unless it's organised, in a ring, and you have a ref!!!

    So, funnily enough I have 600 watt HPS in a cool tube, with 125cm/6' ruck inline fan for cooling purposes, I have an inline fan (god knows the cfm) but it's a 20 watt pulling air in from outside. Temps range between 20-26c, and humidity sits around 55-60. I have a space of around 120cmX140cm (height around 2.6m.) I have set up my girls on steps, and have my 600 vertical in the middle, Trying for an arena type grow. I also have a few girls up in the stalls as an experiment (pics below).

    For the ladies we have some Headband, OG Kush, Cali Orange, 2 mystery clones - will reveal later - there is a comp in my grow journal)
    And waiting to pop we have a BlackJack, a NewYork47, and some Mango's. It's all in veg time at the moment due to previous clone wars (that I lost.)

    So come on peeps, show of your skills!!.

    Peace, DST

    disclaimer - I searched but could not find a 600 club, but if anyone knows of one, I am happy to hear about it.

    That looks too good Don!!!^^^^^^
    At the the mo its a bit busy in there. But with the vertical, plus the shelving up above, I get a good bit more room (stack em high)
    So/ 5 Cali O, but they are from normal seed, so some of them are going (when it comes to the 12/12 some are going to be male) To be honest, I have my eye on one of them, if thats a girly then I am well chuffed.. Then a few Headbands - 8 :shock: but I will keep the strongest looking ones of them, and 5 OG kush (3 up on shelfs though, and one up in the heavens as well (thats a twin:hump:). There will be added lights when it comes to flower time I am sure....And 2 mysteries. The new seeds I got coming through I want to veg for as long as possible....

    I know what you mean with keeping numbers down, but I am confident this style of growing, making use of all the light - 360 degrees stylee, will help. Right, off to the fridge to get some cider, I feel like going blind...waiting on the wife getting back to crack the champagne that is currently chilling- holiday started!!!! Happy dayz.

    So I guess to make it less confusing we should be talking about current grows huh. Alright, that's cool.

    First I have a confession. I actually run 650w... a 400w HPS and a 250w MH (i also have a 250w hps bulb for it). Now before you say it's unfair I will admit to having terribly dusty/ dirty homemade cool tubes. So I am 100% confident I am at least negating 50w worth of light with my laziness.

    Now on with the show:
    This is Sour Grape... less than week from the chop:

    Here is the whole grow. Got two plants in their own 5gal DWC:

    jigfresh Well-Known Member

    400w HPS = 50,000 Lumens
    + 250w MH = 21,000 Lum

    650w Mix = 71,000 Lum


    600w HPS = 90,000 Lum

    If you look at Lumen output... You guys and your 600w HPS are KILLING ME. More than 20% more Lumens.

    So I think it's a fair comparison.

    thanks man,
    man im on the fence with vertical hanging i have nothing against it yet i dunno i prefer the other way. but im into canopy mangement so idk.

    but shelving and stacking is the next step between the rotating grow chamber things which i know work but who the hell wants to lay out £ or $ K's to grow on a fancy ass carousel. yeah it looks kool but im yet to see anyone compare to a scrog or sog. probably cos no fool can afford the side by side

    i hear head band is good shit?! clone only?good on ya for the reg beans man. im all for reg seeds i generally dont run fems with the hermie risk but sometimes you have to roll the dice

    cider all day today man stowford press ive been drinking but am home rocking the stella trying to cook tea :shock:

    I'm relaxed. I took no offense. Life is good my friend. I was simply putting some numbers out there. That's all.

    haha kool man sorry ive been at the old go faster tonight my brains working 50 to the dozen.

    so you running with the hps and mh for the better spectrum i take it or just what was to hand?

    jigfresh Well-Known Member

    Yeah man... I have hose nights too, just ask my wife. :evil: (the devil guy is supposed to be me... not my wife, haha)

    I like the dual spectrum for more trich production. I've read quite a few trusted (at least by me) growers on RIU talking about how they like flowering under MH for taste and effect. However you definitely give up weight using Only MH, so I mix it up.

    My first grow I had the MH on one side HPS the other. It was night and day with yeild and trich level on each side of the closet.

    I heard a good mix of light is 1:2 - MH:HPS

    This vert grow... I actually put in all HPS for about a week... but it's almost impossible to check trichs for harvesting with all the damn orange light. So I put the MH back... and when I go to check the plants I unplug the as to see.

    I don't know how they work, but I think the real ticket is the Super Hortilux Dual Spectrum bulbs. Expensive but supposedly give off both spectrums.

    im just trying to calm myself before the missus comes in hahah

    i totally get your looking to improve the prodcut im into making the best of what i can too i just got a 300w enviro for the under canopy and am getting a uv lamp in a few weeks ive similarly seen what it can do for your grow and was impressed but want to suck it and see. ( and hopefully not get cancer!?!)

    sadly ive not been able to find a uk suuplier for hortilux ive heard they're top notch. i looked into purple CFLs but decided on a normal and a uv. you ever look into that shit

    jigfresh Well-Known Member

    I've read up a little on the UV lamps. Not too much. I had kinda forgot about them. It is something I am into trying. I guess you only run the UV for an hour at the start of the day and the end of the day... or something. And like you said... you can fuck around and give yourself skin cancer or something. But it's something I am going to check out in the future.

    Progress is good, but it's hard to get my ass into shape looking for bigger and better when I'm satisfied with how big and good I already got.

    Satisfaction = Laziness (or at least leads to it)

    If I went for the good stuff, I'd have some of those dual spectrum bulbs, a uv light, and a co2 setup. Maybe next grow...

    i was thinking 3 hours of 12 at the beginning 3 weeks 3 hours in th e middle the middle three and 3 hours the last three for end of 9 weeks mimicking summer. or thats the thought i had anyay haha

    i know what you mean bout bigger and better but idk i have a thirst for the finest i can make it. i get good results now and i'm very happy with it but i want better hah

    cvo2 eh ?! posh haha
    i hear you have to run your temps higher? to get the most out of it, i looked at that but when i saw it runs best bout 35c i realised i had no chanxce of maintianing that and binned the idea.

    jigfresh Well-Known Member

    It is quite a bit easier to maintain high temps in Souther California vs. Sunny England.

    If you really wanted to do it... you could vent your light into the room to keep temps up. But that's a tough balancing act.

    EDIT: And yes I am posh, ha. I prefer test cricket even. Much more civilized.

    I did say 600, or there all welcome...But nice comparison, Jig!!!

    The Headband I actually got from seed (via weed that DNA had supplied to a coffeeshop) So I guess it was Headband bagseed, but it has produced some amazing bud. It does have a tendency to produce a couple of its own seeds, but then most plants do. The seed have produced some decent looking offspring as well.

    My NY47 and JAck are fem, so we sahll see on them. Mango straight seed - just to be clear.

    Cider, then wife Beater, sheesh, that will get you there:hump:

    Alls good bru's. Packing for my mountain trip, lets hope we get there....

    Peace out, DST
