  1. Yes. Depending on the strain.
  2. What do you mean you have 6 weeks of veg left? They look ready to me. Go 12/12 and don't top them.
  3. I was just going to ask him the same thing; "Can you mount the driver remotely to save on heat in the tent/room?" With the 1500 Yehsense you can let the plants grow up to 6 inches from the light at mid bloom. Right now I have my hydro scrog about a foot away just starting to go 12/12 bloom with both switches on. They don't have a dimmer but they have two switches, one for veg and both for bloom. Not sure how many growers have the room to have the lights 2-3 feet above the plants.
  4. It would be nice to see 'how much heat is added to a room' type comparison.
  5. Like I said, I learned about LEDs from a friend with deep pockets and doesn't care how much he spends. Actually growing. Lights with plants under them? Understand? Not books? Not google. Then I bought lights and used them for a few grows before I ever said a word here.
  6. Bleaching is cellular damage that slows growth. You don't want that at all. It shows you NEED a meter.
  7. Well, as you said you were drunk and spewing nonsense. Easy to spot when you have been doing the hard work researching. Just like what you just said about the Spyder LEDs. It's not an issue at all on a grow I can go look at right now. Not sure where you get your info. Should find a better source.
  8. The lights I recommend to King do not have hot spots. I checked them with a meter. That's one reason I stress having a meter. It takes a lot of guess work out of it.
  9. The guy who owns the plant store had this happen and he didn't know exactly why. Said he had a burnt plant on the next grow over from a seemingly cross eyed LED. Now we know why.
  10. Most of us here have been growing for 10 years now, at least. I have been growing indoors since 1986. We have it down cold with HPS. Max yields. What we are trying to accomplish is the same results using less power and producing less heat. LEDs are not going to be some miracle that produces 10 times bigger buds than HPS. I did a whole lot of research on LEDs before I got my feet wet. The most helpful was my friend who owns a plant store. He bought all kinds of LEDs and shared his experience. That's priceless. Now I'm trying to help others get their feet wet. Trying to help them get the most out of their money.
  11. OOooohhhh that sucs! Always feared that happening. I still have the 4/20/09 issue date. Chugging along. They burned me on the first year of the 2 year card. I was the last to get a 1 year card because I sent it in early. So I renew next year. I wonder how many still have it going continuously from the 4/20 'introductory special edition' group?
  12. Nice. If you put 4 of the cheap ones in that tent you would have about as much PPFD.
  13. I have a quantum PAR meter. It works great for comparisons. If you want to use a PPFD meter that's fine. What I would like to see is side by side comparison between these lights you are building and the ones you said that were not as good. The PAR footprint and all around inside of it. A true comparison. That's what I do when I compare lights. Takes all the guess work out of it.
  14. My OG Kush was so healthy I let it grow an extra week.
  15. Right. And the two young fathers who where robbed and killed in the Walmart in Owosso parking lot trying to do a deal. They were in that position because of false accusations and repression against their most basic rights. So criminals take advantage of us because we are devalued under false ideas. What about the orphans now? The struggling widows? How is that ever made right?
  16. I agree, it is a great feeling. All the reasons marijuana was illegal have fallen away as false ideas and fears. I've spent my whole life trying to be free of the stigma and now I feel like one of those prisoners that was incarcerated under false evidence. A whole life that would have been different, better, without the repression and hiding. How do we get repaid for our loss? Are we just supposed to forgive and forget? I guess forgiveness makes us stronger. So we are one strong group of individuals living our lives now the way it should have been all along.
  17. I would tend to think it's not a scam if they have a physical presence in Jackson Mi. It actually looks legit to me. There are plenty of marijuana related businesses I haven't heard of yet.
  18. A seed seller actually in Michigan. I would go there and find out, buy in person, harder to get scammed.
  19. Here's a picture of a chem d bud at 4 weeks flower under 2 1500's dirt grow.
  20. This a picture of my aero grow under 3 1500's. They are at 2 weeks veg.
  21. Here's a picture of my hydro SCROG grow under 3 1500's.
  22. I didn't know you meant 'secondary lenses'. The secondary lens lights are exactly what you don't want. They cause hot spots and crazy results like some plants burnt way over to the side of the grow like they are cross eyed. Secondary lenses for LEDs are designed to refocus the light from the diode and primary lens into a new, usually narrower, beam. Many grow light companies are using secondary LED optics / lenses and claim to "amplify", "magnify", or "boost the output of" the light. The secondary lenses are magnifying the light in exactly the same way a magnifying glass does in the sun- but no additional light is being produced or "harvested" from the LED, it is just being focused to a narrower beam or even a point. In fact, about 10% of the light is reflected or refracted by the secondary lens and is lost- but the remaining 90% gets focused into a more-intense beam. If you're trying to market your product based on a single measurement of intensity, using secondary lenses will make the light really bright immediately under the center of the light so that any lumen, PAR, YPF or other intensity measurements taken there are impressive. But just like a spotlight or laser, just off to the side of the narrow beam of light, there is almost no light. Any plants trying to grow in this region are only getting light reflected off the plants immediately under the light fixture-- but the grow light certainly looks impressive in an ad with its extremely high PAR value or "569% more light" due to "powerful optics"! Companies using secondary optics are often manipulating their PAR/PPFD readings to make their lights look much better than they really are.
  23. visible from a public place without the use of binoculars, aircraft, or other optical aids So if they did see them from an aircraft, helicopters, drones, or using optical aids ie; eye glasses/bifocals/binoculars/contact lenses; INADMISSABLE!
  24. (f) cultivating marihuana plants if the plants are visible from a public place without the use of binoculars, aircraft, or other optical aids or outside of an enclosed area equipped with locks or other functioning security devices that restrict access to the area;
