Beautiful pics Bluesbreeder. All that from one 600w Viparspectra?
yes it amazed me what a nice big plant you can grow with a very cheap light.
let's hope the taste and potency is also good.
but never thought the buds would get so big under a viparspectra but i also did some bud swelling technique on some buds and it seems to work. lot's of people are scared to try it but i thought what the hell let's try it.
i did it on 4 of the 8 big buds and they look more fat then the normal ones.
so i'm going to use this technique on my future grows.
and who knows what would have happend if she did not had a deficiency? she's a big girl already
If growers here had their harvest tested by a lab for THC content, I bet 75% would find that their weed has about half the THC content of dispensary grown weed. Dispensaries where I live have their donations tested by a lab near me ($75 a sample) and post such results when you go to order from them. Most DIY'ers can grow the most delicious looking jewel encrusted dense nugs and have the THC content not be that high. I know from experience having grown great looking spears only to have them not get me ripped. They got me stoned, but not ripped like dispensary weed which tests at 18-24 % THC. I haven't had my grow tested, but with how much it doesn't get me ripped, I'm guessing the THC content to be in the 9-13% range. Am I hoping to reach the level of pro grow farms in potency? You bet. First off is to try something other than my BestVA 1000w $109 LED panel .Maybe one Horticulture 135w 3000k Quantum lighting for a one plant stealth grow (around $200).
I just got my QB 260w XL kit yesterday! It's very bright and I'm not having any heat issues like I did with the Vipar600 or HPS. I'm already happy and I'm sure I'll be happier when I see the results.
hey , i understand that you got something against chinese led light's and i have grown under HPS and this grow is under a ViparSpectra and my next grow will be under QB260 W and i will be completely honest if the Weed grown under the Viparspectra is poor THC quality. i can't comment on that because i'll have to wait a while.
but i just wanted to show people that you can grow a Big plant under a Cheap light? yes you can. is it the best option? No. are there better light to find for a few bucks more? yes .are Cobs an QB far better then Vipar for a few dollars more? yes they are. but maybe when we talk to each other in 2 years . The Cobs and QB will be the viparspectra of today and there will be much better stuff. but hey you can grow a big plant with decent smoke under a very cheap light! and if you use some technique's you can get even bigger Buds With More thc production then normal. what i want to say is everybody's wrong and right. i'm just sharing this experience with you and for now all i can say is damn this light gave me a big plant and in a few weeks i will see if it will get me high

well she's still not finished to my satisfaction. there are like 50%clear trichomes / 50%milkey trichomes and sometimes i see an amber but like 5% on total
so i'm going to wait till tomorow or day after so more trichomes can get milkey . we will see i'm sure the next post will be me cutting it down . and she's rather big

it was a hard ride growing it. normally it would have been an autoflower but it did not want to flower.
so on week 10 i put her on a 12/12 schedule to force her into bloom.
after that she started blooming. and because she took that long she grew out to be a big plant.
it was my first grow with Advance nutrient and i'm not sure if i like it? before i always used canna and everything went good. now i used AN and i had deficiency maybe i need to learn a little more. i will use AN further because a have enough at home. but maybe a will switch back to Canna in next grows coming . it's less bottles and it worked very well. but hey let's see.
i was amazed how good a Cheap light like the viparspectra did on this plant and yes i know there are better lights. i'm going to use my vipar for veg and will bloom under 2 QB 270 W they are far better . but hey the vipar did a good job so if you wondering if the viparspectra grows you weed yes it will grow you weed. also tried Bud Swelling technique on some Buds and i must say i will be doing it again. looks like it working . after all i'm very satisfied with the result even if it took me 20 weeks .
