    Here some custo made LED lights a friend of mine hooked it up with, they are 3watt leds for a total of 84 watts i have 2 panels one for Vegging and one for flowering both have dimmable red and blue switches. any questions or comment would be appreciated 1-6B9F4B4B-0-800.jpg 2-6DE4F154-602798-800.jpg View attachment 2466003 View attachment 2466004 View attachment 2466005 2-0E92C357-846959-800 - Copy.jpg 2-0C09A63F-871807-800.jpg

    Looks like that panel has a hell of a lot of blue in it. I'd be curious to hear if that causes you problems - most people have the opinion that more than 10-20% blue can be detrimental.

    Also your pictures are tiny :P take a close up of one of the diodes (bulbs) and people will be able to tell you a lot more about what to expect

    SB, I agree. Max 30% 430-450 for veg, and 15% for flower

    Other than that , excellent design. Now have him look into Merkaba, and design led arrangement accordingly

    Merkaba? google search yielded some crystal ball shit (no offence ;))

    edit: especially relevant as I just touched solder to iron for the first time in my new project! woohoo!

As you can see i started flowering in my vegging chamber due to the size of the plants and they are doing allright they are 3 weeks into Flowering. I have 2 75 watt hps lights in my Flowering chamber hoping to upgrade soon. the leds are 3watts a piece.

    If you look at the Merkaba shape it is 2 identical equilateral triangles, one overlaid on the other, creating 6 points.

    It is sacred geometry


    Theoretically, having a diode at each point should multiply the energy emitted

    One other thing, I would stagger the diodes on every other rail. That would provide more in between coverage

    OK one more, I would cut the larger clone leaves in half. Uses less energy, yet supplies sufficient photosynthesis to develop new leaves
