If I wasn't good at LST'ing before, this will definitely force the issue. Thank you!
Woohoo! First post on page 420. Time to toke!
Gorilla was a great choice because of the height extension. Which I hope you have installed? You're going to need it...
Yup. Pain in the ass, leaving me with like 1 inch between the tent and ceiling, but worth it. On my previous tent, it was a lifesaver (had to install it mid-grow), so this time around I don't want to make the same mistake. At 5x5x7'11" with the extension I'd rather just leave it in place. Figure at that height I can grow a plant of up to around 4 ft at harvest and be safe. Ideally I'd rather keep it at 3 or lower and be able to focus on having a sexy, flat canopy.
WOW, excellent! I just got a grow light panel, very cheap. I have it set up in the kitchen under some cabinets to grow some herbs and will provide an update as to how the plants are liking it once they sprout. Couldn't have asked for a more slick looking design! Thanks Roleadro.
Looks real familiar.
Aside from the CXB 3590's n MeanWells that is.
Crazy the Johnson uses 2540's. [:-/
I thought it was 3070's all along.
Thank you. Sssshhh, don't tell anyone, but my first LED was a MarsHydro. I feel like an adult now with this light. Now we'll see if I have the chops to grow a crop. Can't blame my light now.
I did too.
In your pic what are the strip lights ? running down the posts? what extra led colours would be best to add ? to the cobs ? You do great work thanks for sharing, I am total dummy with this stuff. your builds have made me a cob fan any advice is very appreciated.
anybody able to tell me if I can run my led s off 12 V DC only any special wiring required ?
my led... Yes
Your led... I don't know
just saw this video and figured i i would share it here ,pretty crazy tech he has goin on.
Thanks quod Mine light up on 12 V side. I was wondering if they need any special wiring for continuous use ?
Anyone have experience with bleeching buds/leaves?
I have my CXB3590's about 6-7 inches from canopy for a few days now (no diffuser and running 1.4a) but haven't experienced any bleeching.
EDIT : Waddya know, its page 420!
Yes I did with 3070's very bad. Didn't even realize it for awhile either. Looked like a deficiency at first
I also want a post on page 420.
But have little useful info to offer.
I will just post pics of my 2 tents. Running 11 cobs total, all Cree 3590's. The 2 tents are a total of 570 watts.
At least I qualify as an LED user.
This is the 5 cob tent running at 250 watts with 1 dogbud and 2 headband 707's
The 6 cob tent running at 320 watts. I will supplement this with a stick led with red, blue, UV and IR on it. I want to see if multi spectrum is "better".
This is 1 dogbud(left) and 4 Blue fires waiting to be sexed.

Thanks @robincnn for the pin sinks and sale chips.
Is some nice looking buddage.
I guess I should get to work. New lights on the way. 4/20
