    Whatsup fellow organic peeps?! Don Tesla and myself are here to share our growth with our favorite online community. We grow 100% organically, taking what we have learned over the last several years and shaping it into our own style. We have two worm bins to help with our all-natural needs and will be incorporating isect frass into our aerated brews. We have several beans of various strains germing but will be culling down to 4 or 5 max. Here is a rundown on the setup:
    Tent Dimensions: 3'×3'×6'
    Lighting: 4-3'/39W 6400K T5HO/400W Full Spectrum LED
    Medium: custom organic soil mix
    Water source: 4:1 R/O to springwater
    Feeding: via AACT's
    Strains: Tahoe OG, Kosher Kush, Super Lemon Haze, Chernobyl, various Bubba Kush/TGA crosses and some unknown bagseed

    Oh snap! Look who's up - Kosher K.

    Lookin good, Don.

    Just curious... Is your screen name a play on "Dawn Patrol", as in an early-morning surf session? I'm about due for a pre-work dawn patrol...

    That sounds like a blast, Spicy, however it is derived from Dan Petro, the Haitian Vodou spirit who protects farmers.

    Hahaha right on my man. I was hoping you'd post up some info after i had to duck out early there. Could have used another breakthrough bar though, haha. Should have more above ground today i imagine. We will have to play around with the height of that light a bit but for now it should be fine.

    Thanks for stoppin in, Hy! The LED is a 400W panel from China. The price was right and it is bright as fuck! Runs real quiet too for having three fans. Time will tell!

    Is this your first time using an LED? What did you use before? What was the price tag on the LED?

    I think LED's will be my next investment. I'm waiting for my ballasts to take a shit (and the prices to hopefully come down a bit on LED's) and then replace them with better technology.

    best leds to get are area 51, apache tech, Hans led (bonsaihero), DIY Cree cobs. Then another tech that's equal is inda gro induction / led pontoon combo.

    area 51 runs all top bin Cree leds. Apache runs Nichia mid -top bin leds, Hans runs Cree and osram top bin leds (no lenses).

    I personally run inda gro and area 51. More panels coming soon. I plan on building a cob led for a 4x4 - 5x5 veg room.

    Chinese leds can produce good results. They use low bin low quality led's and use more watts to cover same area. Then failure rate is high. They drive leds to hard causing them to fail. If you go Chinese. Then it fails. You can build it into a top quality light. With DIY. You don't have a casing usually. So being able to use a casing is nice for DIY.

    don not implying or saying anything negative about yours intentionally. Just helping stow out. I went through Chinese leds myself a couple years ago. Its almost a right of passage for led growers. Kind of like your first car.

    I've grown with everything under the sun including old mercury vapor lamps, t8's, cfls, hps and the good ol' sun itself but the LEDs are new to me. Being our first LED and having a small space we didn't want to break the bank. The real investment i think has been in the amendments to build our soil mix. But i hear you hyroot, you get what you pay for i guess. I'm amazed at how bright it is for such a small, sleek unit though.
