    This video was posted in the hydroponic section but I think it is something all newbies should watch. This guy is a little off on a few things and I dont agree with everything he does but its a very good and funny video to watch. He does a pretty good job on explaining the basics.-Widow

    Wow I thought this was an awesome video! I'd never really seen the whole process before. So to set something like that up would take 2 months of growing the future Mothers, one week to sex a clone, 1.5 months to grow the female clones (if any) to flowering stage, 6-8 weeks of flowering to harvest and another week to cure.

    Almost 6 months till you smoke your own buds!!! But after all that work you get 1/4lb of green every two months...

    I don't know if I have the patience for this.

    Widow, what were some of the technical disagreements you have?

    While I'm a noob who doesn't know jack, I found a couple things that clashed with my research.

    - Watering three times a day!?
    - Germinating in a cup of water
    - But he pulls it off!

    Its been a while since I watched it. If I remember right he just wasnt very clear on a few things. And With all my 10-15 grow videos I thought he was the most amature. I didnt get a few things like ph-ing his water before he added his nutes. I would have to watch it again to nit-pik it.

    As far as him watering 3 times a day. He was not using soil. He used rockwool and clay pellets. The rockwool will hold water for a long time. But in theory his roots are supposed to outgrow that. I thought his roots sucked. But they were supposed to be in the pellets mostly and those pellets dry out pretty quick. Thats why he watered 3 tmes a day.

    He was the most amusing out of all the other videos I have.

    Not true. I have a mh conversion bulb. Its a mh but puts out light like a hps. Its the light under the parabolic hood in my clone room. I need to change it to a regular mh bulb.

    I have no clue what the mr green was saying I missed that part. :)

    Either download real player or do a google for "ace mega codec pack" or "k-lite codec pack".

    wow the soil one was super helpful for me thanks man

    OmegaVermelho Well-Known Member

    You´re talking about a conversion bulb wich is not the case in the MrGreen vid, plus u can clearly see in the vid the Orange reflection on the mylar..Peace and Pot

    My bad, I will have to watch it again to see what hes talking about. Lol I know he is kinda a dipshit.

    there are hps bulbs that have a good blue spectrum saturation. the agro sun and hortilux bulbs have something like 30% more blue than normal hps bulbs

    OmegaVermelho Well-Known Member

    Like i´ve said before those are conversion bulbs, wich is not the case in the video that we are discussing....Peace and Pot

    ChronicConnoisseur Active Member

    Yes there are ... I have one, Look up the EYE Hrotilux Bulb for HPS its a HPS bulb (mostly red spectrum) but with added blue spectrum for her pleasure, its a lil more expesive but I am sure it is worth every penny not having to switch bulbs or ballasts. Peace.

    The guy is a fag, but he does have a nice set up. Sorry if anyone's feelings were hurt by that remark, but i was refering to fag in a different way. Nothing against the gay community!

    What I don't understand about that one video is why he only had about a pound or less with all those plants. Hell I get that amount from just 3-4 plants. K-2 produces a lot more bud than that.

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]MH/HPS Dual Spectrum Systems[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]A full spectrum of light[/FONT]

    Optimize plant growth with dual spectrum lighting systems from Sunlight Supply and Hydrofarm. Dual spectrum systems are the only way to truly get full-spectrum plant lighting. This type of hydroponic lighting system blends the blue spectrum of a metal halide lamp with the red spectrum of a high-pressure sodium lamp. Dual spectrum systems offer the best of both worlds and provide the most advantageous hydroponic lighting for all stages of growth.

    I purchased a 1000W Super Spectrum Grow Light System And have yet to use it in fear of my plants growing way to much veg. durring budding. Will have to try on a crop sometime.[​IMG][​IMG]

    the blue spectrum HPS he's referring to is a recent addition to HPS lighting. the only example i have experience with is the Hortilux version. for the 400w, they add a 30w filament of blue spectrum, so you end up with a 430w that works in the same fixture (same deal with other wattages.) precludes the need for switchable ballasts, etc.. provides plenty of overlap in usable spectrum, reduces your bulb purchases, etc. to one type. i think for the 430 hortilux it should be around a $30-40 USD upgrade to a standard output HPS bulb. do your homework..
