    These two girls have been in my veg/mother room under 125 watts worth of CFLs for the last 3 weeks.
    My HLG 65 is the light that belongs in there, but I have some modifications to do to my main light before I put it back in the flowering room. So the 65 is running the show in the flowering room for right now.

    Got my light mods done, i moved the QBs out 2 inches in the frame and rewired everything, relocating the driver to the wall.

    Had to cut some more aluminum angle to support the blurple 300. (Really need to mod that light with some cobs)

    Well clone A has finally reached the scrog. I may flip the lights once clone B reaches there. This plant stretched like a mofo last time she flowered.

    Dont have any bug problems, but i put the sticky traps out anyway. I use neem oil for pest control.

    Cranked the QBs up a bit more

    Well it only took me 9.5 hours to finish the light...started at 4pm, figured i would be done by 8-9, didnt finish until about 130am. But i did have to stop and make dinner before wife got home from work.

    But now running 4 QB 304s, two 3000k and two 2700k

    Well as you can see i upgraded the lights from 2 to 4 boards and removed the blurple for good. Probably going to rob the drivers from it to run cobs down the road.

    I also noticed that the used heatsinks from the old light changed color wherever a QB or Aluminum frame touched it. Still 100% functional and i dc either way, just thought it kinda odd.

    Res change - 10 Gallon
    25 grams of Megacrop

    Running lights at 200ish watts. Plants seem to like it.

    Topped both plants a few days ago.
