    Here is the infamous Wappa! We have had this clone for almost 10 years now and nothing beats it for fast-finishing yields, strong, heady high and bag appeal. It is also almost impossible to kill! It's a very strong plant and highly recommended to any commercial grower. The Tangerine Sorbet...

    Hey everyone, it's been a while but I have some nice update photos. First I'm going to post up the Tangerine Sorbet, which are doing really well on their second run. There are 8 different seedlings here but it is hard to tell them all apart as they are so uniform. I do have a couple of...

    You quote one of my posts with the photo below and say: "those buds look quite average, lots of white hairs and no trichombes. They look kind of unhappy." Really? You don't come across as a botonist to me. You come across as a troll. Regardless of what you think of the genetics, these plants...

    Growdown! Mars Hydro vs Grow Lights Australia

    I can't go into too much detail, but he "allegedly" had enough plants to lose everything he owns. He is also looking at a few years inside. Even with a good lawyer, he is facing some very stiff penalties. That should give you an idea of the "alleged" scale.

    You haven't grown many plants, have you? EDIT: Maybe you think I'm being rude saying that, but when you have grown out many plants over the years you will know that you can't judge the quality of the smoke by the "look" of a plant. For example, I would take those "sick" plants you referred to...

    Hey mate, are you referring to this photo? What do you mean by the plants look "unhappy"? This was an early strip build (2018) under Samsung LM281B diodes with no UVA – unlike the High Lights I run now. The point of the photos I posted was not to show off the plants but to prove that I have...

    Growdown! Mars Hydro vs Grow Lights Australia

    We all preferred the plant grown under the GLA light but I guess you'd expect that. There is no chance of getting the samples tested by the origal guy now, so unless I find someone else local who can do it I will just have to hang on to the sample. The problem is, the longer the samples are held...

    Growdown! Mars Hydro vs Grow Lights Australia

    I have some very bad news. It's actually much, much worse than that. As many of you may know, Australia still has some very harsh pot laws. They are so harsh, that in some cases the authorities can confiscate your home and all your assets. Aussies will know what I'm talking about. The contact...

    Here is a close-up #4, which is pretty frosty even though it won't yield as well. It's still not too bad. These plants are all super-oily and the final smells are all very sweet, like gellato, but with strong skunky fuel undertones. Some of the plants also have a minty-menthol flavour about...

    It's harvest time! This is #3. It is still flowering, so will be the last to be cut down. This gives you an idea of the overall size of each plant (admittedly this is the biggest). Here's another angle. See the bleached spots on a couple of the lower leaves? They are Buddies burns. That's as...

    Growdown! Mars Hydro vs Grow Lights Australia

    I think you misunderstood what I wrote. I am obviously biased towards my own lights, but the grow-off was not. If that were the case, we would have put the bigger clone under our light intead of the Mars Hydro – you can see it for yourself in the photos. I also don't see any way the grower...

    Getting close to harvesting these. Glowstarz/930C test seeds at Week 10 of flowering. They will need to come down next week to make room for the next grow.

    Got some updates on the Tangerine Sorbet. They are all looking great after their pH-pen fail nutrient issues earlier in the grow. The thing that strikes me most about them is how uniform they are and how close to the Wappa mother they appear. I already know this strain is a winner going by the...

    Beautiful mate! I keep asking what you think of the LA Amnesia because i'm keen to try it myself. Luc at Paradise Seeds rates the LA Amnesia over the Rainbow Road.

    I dropped the samples off last night, so hopefully we shouldn't have to wait too long for the results.

    Growdown! Mars Hydro vs Grow Lights Australia

    You are spot on. The reason we use 405nm diodes is mutli-faceted. Firstly, the Nichia 405nm diode we use is over 70% efficient – the most efficient UVA diode on the market. Secondly, 405nm is in the active PAR range – very few LED lights on the market include violet light under 440-450nm, and...

    There are. GLA has something like 1000 strip PCBs in the current shipment and some prototypes ready for assembly. The shipping issue has put him behind. The strips are 48V and are designed to be driven at 30-70W each and will mount to standard 50mm (2") T-slot. The spectrum is the same as the...

    Growdown! Mars Hydro vs Grow Lights Australia

    Hi mate, trying to get it organised today. Sorry, things are not simple in Australia as the type of testing we do is still not legal, so we have to go through underground channels to get our test results. @Grow Lights Australia is banging his head against a wall at the moment as shipping delays...

    Looking for information on LED grow room lights

    Hi mate, I can ask @Grow Lights Australia in here to chat, as he's a sponsor, or I can answer most of your questions regarding the lights, as I helped design and test them. We did a lot of spectrum and diode testing with LED Teknik, another Australian company. If you're in Australia, our lights...
