    its so cool to see the innovations that people have come up with on this site. I just noticed this thread so i'll post pics of the lights i built here. Although mine are pretty basic.

    you can see i was heavily influenced by timber grow lights. i just like the clean look of em. really liked the aluminum extrusions too. all the lights can slide up and down the t-slots. pretty simple and handy. the pvc junction boxes are temporary to hold all the wagos in. i plan to solder and heat shrink all the connections when i'm sure of a final set-up.

    I love it! I was actually going to do the same thing but couldnt find the right size for how I wanted to do it cheap enough for my budget.

    The seeds are under the tinfoil, they are in the transition phase and can't be disturbed. Those are thermal emitter diodes, Gotta keep up with the tek, guys! :idea:

    I like the light, it triggers flashbacks for some reason. Does everyone see cool spots everywhere and purple blobs, it's like free acid. I love my Bluple for veg, but no cool spots like this one.

    My center "Hotspot" early flowering light.

    5 Cree cxb3590 3500K on a Meanwell 185h 1050mA. 210 wall watts with driver on full whack. I used to run 4 cxbs 3000k on this driver and the 5 3500k on a Meanwell 240h 1400 which is lying spare at moment.
    Using it in a 32" x 32" x 60" - 80cm × 80cm x 1.5m tent.
    4 x Paradise Seeds Sensi Star originals 19 days of 12 on 12 off.
    They're in Biobizz light mix, perlite, vermiculite and sand.
    Feed is ATA a + b Wilma hydro food and Atami Bloom Stimulator, only cause I got 5l for £10 off the back of a lorry.
    Not too long now til the stretch stops.
    I've got about 4" headroom left to raise the light.
    Very intense light at top of plants, I checked it with par meter, so I'll keep a close eye on them
    Light is 6" away from plants in the corners and around 8" from plants in the middle.
    Another week or so under the crees and then they'll get moved into the "fattening room" with the real n fake samsungs lol
