I sold mine on K-raig's list because the coffee sucks.
But this one is what you are after and is good

Same here...well not the Craig's list part. I donated mine to the landfill.

    Theres your problem. Hydro. Ha

When things go wrong, they go wrong quickly. No soil biology to buffer the system. You have to KNOW exactly what youre doing. Dont get me wrong, I love hydro for indoor novelty growing, but its likely to throw wild swings in ph, ppm, etc if youre not on top of it. Have a good ph/ppm meter, know your nutes, and use RO water if you want to be sure.

Now Im not saying a hydro plant couldnt win this competition either, it would just have to have a res the size of a 55gallon barrel with the best aeration youve ever seen. Hell just grow into a continuous 55 gallon batch of AACT! That would be how I did it.
Even then, Id still put flavors of the fruits fed by soil up against hydro any day.

CSB gave me a run for my money a few years ago with his hydro plant. That was when we were doing tallest plant.

Yessir. Last time I grew I used a whole mess of CFL's. This year, with the farm and scale of the grow, I decided to pony up the dough for actual lights.
T5's were chosen because of heat and power concerns; I had a lot of space to cover, but only so much electricity available at the farm without prohibitively costly upgrades to power.

Reason I asked is I had that type of discoloration on my small seedlings when I switched to T5's. Pretty sure if you search around there are a few threads about it.

Then again it might be something different, but I would hate for you to try and become a mad chemist with nutes for a lighting side effect.
