    This is a logical fallacy.  
    Failure does not prove that success is out-of-reach.   You have to look at success and work backwards from there.  Compare/contrast the grow operation in its entirety.   Changing one element of a grow operation can have wide-spread consequences. 
    My own experience with the lights Resto recommended in this thread is very positive.  So we know that there is a way to succeed with these lights.  We also know that you can't simply swap out HPS and swap in LEDs and expect the same results.
    I wonder why you used King Diamond's experience with these LEDs to conclude that they are no good, rather than use my experience to conclude that they actually are a good option.
    Early on in the MM program in Michigan, I offered DWC advice to several people.  I told them to do EXACTLY what I do, and they would get similar results.   They all ended up deciding that DWC wasn't a good way to grow, and I'd hear stuff like:
    - No, I didn't use a chiller and didn't take the temperature of my nute solution.  I stuck my hand in there, and it felt cool enough.
    - No, I didn't measure dissolved oxygen.  I figured with all of the bubbles, it must be OK.
    - I used to water my hempy buckets with 1500ppm nutes.  I figured that was good for DWC too.
    - After I added the enzymes, the guy at the grow store told me that adding hydrogen peroxide would help stave off root rot.  So I bought a bottle at Rite-Aid and dumped it in the res - For under $1, it was worth a try.
    -  A buddy of mine grows the best buds I've ever seen.  He swears by molasses.  So I gave it a try.
    -  pH?  If I use RO water and mix my nutes according to instructions, the pH should be fine, right?
    Note that, when discussing soil temperatures, King Diamond was only able to assume they were similar under LEDs as HPS.  He also assumed that manicuring the plants the same way he did under HPS would be fine.  Myself, I followed the lead of a grower who has been successful with LEDs and DWC and did EXACTLY as he instructed (except I used different lights - those recommended here).  I ended up with very satisfying results.  I'm sure if King Diamond applies himself, he also can be successful with the same LEDs, as he obviously has done very well with HIDs.

    Seven weeks in flower.  I had a misstep with this plant in about week 3 that resulted in most of the fan leaves turing brown.  It still looks pretty nice.  This plant never saw HPS.

    I'm not sure of the strain.  I received three clones from a friend and got them mixed up.
    This is at 35 days and is my first plant flowered solely under LEDs.
    I'm going to work on photo quality.

    I'm glad you posted this.  One of my pet peeves is folks talking about "magnifying light" as if that means somehow more light is magically created.  As you stated, the lens on these LED lights don't magnify light - they focus it.

    OK, let me get straight to the point.  You, as a patient, seem to think that a caregiver should give you stuff for free in exchange for growing 12 plants.  This is probably because you think a caregiver will sell overages to someone else to make it all worthwhile.  So I ask you this:  How about you sign-up with a caregiver and pay an average price for meds and buy the surplus from the caregiver and then YOU sell it?  Put the shoe on the other foot.
    And bend your mind around this:  If every patient out there is entitled to free meds from a CG, why would any person grow for free?  Where is this free weed coming from?  
    And where did you get the delusion that every plant produces a pound?
    I hope you do find a CG...

    I hope I don't come across as a p.rick, but knowing that a person needs a patient in order to become a caregiver is about the most basic element of this program.  If this is something you had to ask about, you should be asking yourself if you truly know enough at this point to stay legal and out of trouble.  You really should do A LOT of reading and ask a lot more questions before you dive in.

    I agree with everything you said.
    I never will understand why some patients think they should get free meds from a CG, while assuming the CG can sell meds to other patients to make it all worthwhile.  It makes no sense.  It's as if we CGs are asked to sign-up a stranger as a patient and give free meds to him/her and sell meds to other stranger patients to make it all worthwhile. 
    It's crazy.  "I'm sick so I want you to give me free meds and pay for my card and sell MMJ to other SICK people to bridge the costs so I don't have to pay anything."  Why are you more special than the other sick people you expect a CG to sell to so you can get free meds?

    I have a few plants in flower under the Yehsence 1500 LEDs.  They are all of about similar height but range from day 1 to about 4 weeks in flower.  (The first 4 weeks of the old ones were under HPS).  
    I just measured my distances from lights to plant tops.  The canopy height and the heights of the lights vary, but, in general, the distance from bulbs to plant tops is about 18-24" with lots of new growth on the new ones and no bleaching on the old ones.

    Over the past week, I have replaced my HPS ( 3x 1,000w) in my flower room with the Yehsence 1500s.  I don't miss the awkward big hoods and all of the ductwork.  Also, the Yehsence fixtures are fairly small and lightweight, so they sway with the wind, which kind acts like a light mover.  I have only two complaints for far.  1.) the light spectrum makes me a bit nauseous.  (I need some glasses) and 2.) My furnace has run in June for the first time in about 10 years (but that's kinduv a good thing, really)

    After about 2 weeks in veg, I'm very pleased.  I'm not doing a scientific experiment, but after growing indoors for X+ years, I generally know when something is or isn't working.   My veg plants are growing way faster than I've seen in a long time, if ever.  They are very deep green, bushy, and aren't stretching a lot.
