  1. Been running 24/7 since 09 not one time did I notice any issues I did try to go to 18/6 during one veg period and got massive stretch due to my limit ceiling space I went back to 24/7.
  2. Yes place a new want ad for a caregiver including your location and amount that you need monthly .
  3. The new one I ordered has a separated ballast so I can place that outside the grow box since they say it puts out around the same heat as a 600 hps I should be fine .
  4. Well im going to be downgrading to a single 315 no matter what I do these open hood CMH hoods run way too hot for my grow area .
  5. Spoke too soon these lamps get hotter as they go it is looking like im going to have to run a portable ac if I am planning on using this during the warm months in flower.
  6. I just installed my new 630 dual CMH and so far with just ambient air cooling its hovering right around 82 degrees and these lamps are bright as hell .
  7. Yeah it is concerning ive never liked those attached ballast setups ive already prepared this area for my portable ac in case of heat buildup but a friend at a local grow store just raves about the CMH lights says they simulate the sun spectrum better then any other light setup . Dont get me wrong about the LED panels the quality of the finished product and the lack of heat leaving the plants looking lush and pretty really is an attractive feature if I had a bigger grow space I could do wonders with them but the amount my patients use on a monthly basis mandates me getting as
  8. I am not doing another led run cant afford to run short of product for my patients with trial and error i am sure with some work i could pull more weight but with HPS and the new CMH 630 I ordered that will no longer be a problem .
  9. You sure like to nitpick dont you lol .
  10. Regardless of me moving stock around everything was in the finish room during flower and both rooms ran on opposite schedules so nothing was moved after going to 12-12 .
  11. Because of lack of space ran out of room and moved the bushes to the bigger space
  12. Look into the ceramic metal halide lamps they say one 315 watt bulb works as well as a 600 watt hps .
  13. Grape soda Grape ape and Girl scout cookie in the LED room Chem dawg and pre 98 Bubba in the HPS room 6 plants each room the HPS room pulled 21 and a half ounces dry and the led room 6 to 8 because some are still drying the quality from the LED room is great but for all I put into it I expected much more .
  14. Wel i have finished my first full LED grow and I am very happy with the quality but as a caregiver that needs to pull as much weight as possible to keep my 5 patients supplied its just not applicable for my needs I am sure if I did a scrog type grow that would be better for a better yield but from what effort I put into this grow it just was pretty much a weak harvest and yield .
  15. Hydro jack used them for years maybe he can chime in here .
  16. They all saw how much money was being made in Colorado and figured that its a good source of bribes and kickbacks .
  17. Lets please keep this thread civil . I went out and got the material to build a screen and just topped some sugar babys and will be doing two to four plants in the screen one question I see a lot of these scrog grows where the pots are 1 or two gallon pots what is up with that?
  18. I just went and picked up the materiel to build a screen for my LED area my goal is to get a screen full of bud sites this time to increase my yields in that area of my grow room .
  19. I am starting to harvest my LED grow so far im disappointed in my results the LED panels just don't penetrate the canopy like the HPS hoods but as far as quality im loving what im seeing stacked trichomes and the colors are amazing my next run I will be adding a screen and spreading out the plants bud sites to get a more uniformed canopy .
  20. In that case it sounds like you are drowning them the rockwool holds a good amount of moisture alone adding it to wet soil means even more will get sucked into the rockwool that to me sounds like your true issue and not lights used.
  21. Rockwool sucks I use my ez cloner straight into fox farms light warrior making sure a healthy amount of roots are showing.
  22. Ran into a disaster powers been out since Saturday at 4:30pm spent 5 hours trying to get my pos Husky generator fired up to no avail first thing yesterday I went to Lowe's and bought a new 6500 watt unit hoping that the missing 6 hours doesn't seed me to death with hermies .
  23. I love this thread its going to open up a lot of peoples eyes and minds on LED panels I just picked up 10 clones 5 different strains my plan is split the order in half and do a true strain comparison and see what each side yields under each light source.
