    hey. I just wanted to post some pics of my girls under a 4ft 8 bulb T5 setup. I had 3 Sour Flower Sativa which was my favorite it smelt like fruity pebbles. that is the pic of the nug. and i also had 3 White Fire which was some damn good Indica. I used fox farm ocean forest soil, topped once and supercropped a few branches. My yield from the sativas were just over an ounce off each plant so i had more than 3oz ( i could of trained em more) and the yield from the indicas were a little over 4oz all together. I use grow big, big bloom, and tiger bloom for nutrients. ive already dried these, cured em. right now i have 6 more plants under the T5s. they are about to get ready to go into flowering and i was thinking about getting another light setup to put on the side anyone ever tried that? I also have a huge grow tent im setting up with a couple hps. ill post pics. happy growing!

    Wow man that looks great. Do you have other grows using other lights to compare the t5 to? Been curious the difference in quality. I know you will loose some quantity, but if the strength was the same in the end then I'm using a t5 for my first grow

    Looks good, 7 oz is awesome....

    I just pulled about 5oz off my first T5 flowering (8 plants total) I hadn't planned on using this light when I vegged but it's all I could run in my house. Looks great, I'm hopeful I will get 7oz off my next run, I had some unforeseen issues that stunted growth on a few.

    thanks! ya if ur doin ur first grow def go with some T5's i hella like em because they dont use as much enery as hps lights. I have a grow tent im gonna set up with 2 600w hps but first with the crop i have i might buy another 8 bulb t5 setup so ill have both of them goin while i flower. so with both t5 set ups (16 bulbs) ill have over 800w hope fully i can pull a pound. the hps lights will produce more once i get them set up tho. i think hps will almost always get you more yield depending how you do it. i top LST and suppercrop.

    I know I can get more, there were several mistakes (is it a mistake when you know whats wrong but can't fix it?). Vegged too long under 2bulb T5 and in too small containers while I waited for my 8bulb T5 to arive... will be much better this time.

    Ran with the cool whites that came on first run, picking up 5 red spectrum and keeping 3 cool whites soon.

    Man very very nice!!! I been considering using T5's for a grow being I have an area that a 4ft 8 bulb fixture would fit in perfect and I have used the area before so I already have a scog built for it.

    +rep good job man.
