Been waiting for this. Nice one Scott.

#1560716 HOW TO BUILD AN LED GROWLIGHT

Posted by KAOS on 17 June 2018 - 01:51 PM

Got the 5630 panel up and running in the tent now. She does run a bit warm at rated voltage, so under-driving it a bit.

Weekly update

 

 

I chose these particular seeds to try to learn and make mistakes on, and not be too disappointed if I lost them. 

 

It seems as though I am doing the right thing with them (or at least not doing the wrong thing) and am starting to feel more confident.

 

Will start adding more varieties to them over the coming weeks now. Will have to start with the Aji Cito next week.   ;)

 

 

Looking mighty fine Bob. I'd like to see those plants in some normal light to compare against some of my past plant photos.

 

I found I got really dark compact leaves with the purple light.  Be a good test to throw in a 10w 4000k LED bulb (edison or E27) with the purple and compare say after two weeks.

 

You might find leaves will bulk up and get bigger with the additional spectrum.

 

Just a thought.

No chance theyll all fit Bob. Its a 1.2m x 1.2m tent so thats why I am aiming for one of each, 30 plants max. Ill grow until I run out of space, sell, gift or cull those I have more than two of, grow until I run out of space again and make a final choice on the one plant I keep for the season, the other one cull, gift or sell.

I do have a second isolation tent I can fall back on if required but its 3ft x 3ft. I use it if I have a plant thats got problems or if, Im the case this year, I want to do some crosses.

Into week two and many new babies so very happy - 73% at day 14

 

Items in green are out of the Germinator 6000. Items in black still have some hope.

 

Culled some seeds that had possible mould, etc. and lost a couple with my fat fingers :lol:

 

Still waiting for - Yaki Blue / King Naga / 7 Pot BubbleGum (might throw in some late starters incase)

 

I have mounted a phone holder to take progress pics and hopefully will have a sea of green in a couple of weeks. Comparative photos to follow.

 

Thanks for stopping by and keep on growing

Sounds like Im in for some stiff competition this year so Ill be soaking in GA3 at 5000ppm and straight in Potassium Nitrate granules. Forget all that soil growing media malarkey.

Still waiting for my heat mat to arrive... Maybe i'll start em in the microwave, heard it works. 

 

Fair enough and I guess those not using heat mats and opting for the microwave method can have a one day head start.

 

To make it fully transparent a video upload as a starting entry is required though.

Haha.

Looking forward toward the head start. My week is already planned

21st plant seed
22nd top the plant
23rd transplant to 38ltr pot
24th pick flowers to promote veg growth
25th first harvest
26th second harvest
27th get plant ready for over wintering

I reckon 4kg of pods will do until October.
