Your model not on that first spec sheet?
Looks like 66 of them should do quite well against the modern 1700umole led offerings on the market. Only be pulling 1261W too lol
Imagine that! Lol!

By the time i get 3 or 4 done the first one starts growing back so it feltev like A never ending battle. Even clipped the very top leaves or fimmed in efforts to prevent the Umbrella Effect. Will give them a light go around again in 2.5 wks.
In soil for the first time. 1/2 the plants were in soiless media until their transplant into 10gall. Fabric potts. That was a scary transition but seams to be working out for most.

Yup, in "14" things were rough for led grow lights. Whole different ball game now though.
Those SF appear to be decent budget lights. I like the desighn/layout of the 2000sf & the spectrum makes for a nice full cycle light. Has that silicone layer over the doides too. Known to peal i heard but can be self repaired i bet & better then nothin.

The Real Deal QB should be here soon though. 650 R Diablo baby! Bet that is a 1:1 with a 1200w DE.
Have you purchased a 650R? They have been released since April 2020. It is billed as a 1:1 replacement for/with a DE HPS. I can't tell. Never had a anything DE to compare with.

Oh my God I can't believe you weren't embarrassed to post these pictures.

That's okay I guess I'll be embarrassed for you

You know if you wanted to grow a giant fruit, you don't pull all the leaves off you prune all the fruits off but one

Leaves are very important,

Ever seen a naked tomato plant

Yeah but if you hadn't pulled them all off they wouldn't have to grow back how far you reckon you set yourself back dumbass

Considering the results I've been getting, i think ill take the chance this run. In soil for the first time too. No nutes. Just tap water with an occasional tea.
I never do this but the one time i did a few yrs ago i did very well.
