    EB series Gen2 5000K

    I've found some 660nm strips at cutter..thanks teknik. I'm thinking of building a new frame as mine is kinda ghetto...question is I used thermal tape to stick the strips to aluminum bar and wondering if I could just take a razor blade and run it along the underside of the stip to remove it and...

    EB series Gen2 5000K

    I am just increasing the overall size of the light and thought some extra blue might help. I originally thought about adding the 3000K. I guess the general consensus is the 3500K is the best for these strips?

    EB series Gen2 5000K

    I've looked for stips with 660nm like the strips we're using and can't find them, same for the UV. I wished somebody made strips of deep red and uv mixed for a decent price.

    EB series Gen2 5000K

    Hey guys, I have a light I've already built but I'm going to add onto it and expand it some. Currently I have 9 x the EB series G2 strips but at 3500K and I was thinking of adding some blue. The light is for flowering but I'm wondering if a little blue might help for a fuller spectrum. Have any...

    led light burn ...lux meter?

    Yes, I'm going for mothers. I'm older and don't like the high THC strains of today so I'm strain hunting for strains that help my nerve / muscle and joint inflammation pain without causing anxiety. Most of what I have is CBD.

    led light burn ...lux meter?

    Honestly I hate all the mess of soil and perlite etc. The best grow I've ever had was with dwc but I can't pull that off in the summer as I can't afford to run the AC all day and it's generally in the 80's in the grow room which is why I'm trying to get LED/s to work for me. Our summers are...

    led light burn ...lux meter?

    I've not been checking the ppm or ph in soil...I never have. I thought you really didn't have to worry to much about this in soil. I was trying to get mother plants and wanted it to be easy so I figured soil would be the best approach ...so I went down to walmart and bought some six inch pots...

    Failing growing with leds strips.

    Then why do plastic buckets work, same thing? And, why do people have luck with those solo cup contests? What's so different about a solo cup? Thanks for your input!

    Failing growing with leds strips.

    Guys, I just transplanted them a few days ago into fresh soil and they were not root bound at all ...in fact I was disappointed that the cup was only about 1/4 full of roots. I don't mind transplanting them again...I'm going to give them some time to recover. This morning they are looking much...

    Failing growing with leds strips.

    Hmm..wonder why leds require more...I'll look into that. I thought, I'd have to check...but the last time I looked at my city water report it showed it had a high cal rating and I thought the mag was up there to. I figured the 200ppm was mostly cal and mag so I never really bothered with it...

    Failing growing with leds strips.

    A lot do and they don't know it because it grows on the backside of drywall and releases mycotoxins which might not have any effect on one person but really make another person really sick. I have a chronic pain autoimmune illness so I have to be careful.
