    Oh I knew you'd be trolling and would open your mouth Miss Jenny Lawrence. You cant keep that mouth of yours shut. Maybe your hoping you'll end up with something in it. Stop being a girl and quit ur crying.
    Don't bother responding or reporting me to mommy because i'm shutting my computer off!!! I don't wanna read about you whining because your boyfriend broke up with u or because ur having a bad day. I'm done with you little man... or woman, or whatever you call yourself.

    Not my point, but then I'm not exactly shocked that you didn't pick up on it.

    Mars is a semi disposable led fixture with high failure rates.

    If longevity and efficiency(hid is a better & cheaper option) means little to you then go ahead and purchase some "mood" lighting for your plants.

    20180305_143711.jpg View attachment 4103317 View attachment 4103317 I have to throw in my two cents here as I recently purchase 2 Redwood VS 3000k fixtures from Timber. First of all,customer service is what this company prides itself in.They listen to their customers and then turn out a product that growers actually want. Before I pulled the trigger I spoke with Dan at length and I have to say it was a great experience.He helped me with any questions or reservations I had and then pointed me in the right direction for my needs.He has answered the few messages that I have sent him personally and in a timely fashion.Their product is fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone.I don't know what happened with the other guy but to say they have bad customer service... I have to strongly disagree. Peace.

    I don't know bout eye cancer, but over time, red and blue wave lengths without green are extremely difficult on the eyes

    Ok.

    I still wouldn’t buy a DIY light. I don’t even grow with a Mars. I’m just saying they can grow good weed.

    I’d still go Spectrum King or HLG if I was buying a new light

    How can it be an accurate comparison if they are from seed and different strains?

    LOL if the test comes back Mars is equal you are working for the Chinese man. I own both and I cry bullshit. Timber is so much better.

    It is like saying hey i got the same tools at this chinese knock off place. Well work on your car with them. I use quality made in north america tools because they do not fail on sunday. when everything is closed.

    I say cobs forever. they work really amazing. My only complaint is the internodal distance is too tight. Never thought i would say that.

    Sounds like your CoB spectrum is titleed too much into the blue range (450-500). I have 3 different Amare Technologies CoB lights; SE 220, SE 250 and Pro 300 no issues here

    I am equally happy wth my BML SPYDR 600 with my custom blend of monos installed at the factory. It's ~85% combination of CW/NW/WW monos + 450 and 630 monos. The perimeter has a better umole consistency than CoBs

    I think I am just getting used to the light. The tent is a bit small (5 square feet by 5 feet high) so it is all new and i am playing with the light wattage and fan speed to keep the temp right. But veg just started going gangbusters so they just needed a bit more time :D

    The hit the net last night. Woo hoo the scrog has started
