    I've done some runs at 4000k only start to finish, I was very happy with the results but I've never done a comparison so I'm not sure what the plants would have looked like under different lights. In my newer tent I'm doing a 1/3- 4000k 2/3s- 3500k mix. They are on separate switches so I veg with 4k and flower with both. I like vegging with 4's, keeps the plants more compact.

    I've read that having some 4k-6k lights during flower can increase frost. Who knows.

    Go with T5 UVA/UVB instead. You'll like they way they look.

    I am a total noob to LEDs (I HAVE however watched and re watched nearly all of Growmau5's you tube vids) I decided to just go with an easy 3500K set up for now and see how it goes. thanks for all the input though!

    I need to start reamending and cooking soil too! and get sht cleaned up and ready to go for another run. Looking to upgrade my lighting set up gradually... atm I have a 600 watt hood, will be adding the 250 3500k 5 cob to there as well.. I think my plan is going to be to set it up as just a straight bar and use it in addition to the 600, eventually I will buy 2 more (enough?) and then have a total of 15 COBS 750 watts in this will be just in flower. Veg currently is just floro and seems to work ok. aaaaaah long term plans lol

    It always makes me nervous to bring things from outside into my tent, do you do anything special to clean it up?

    I always had gnat problems when I grew in the house, haven't had any since growing in the garage. As I was sitting here on my computer the other evening killing gnats, I realized they are here because my wife puts all the house plants outside during the summer, and then brings them back in for the winter... the plants, and all the bugs living in the soil.
