Seems like the 3000-4000 are a little bit ahead in calyx building, closely followed by the 6000 and 6500 with the 8000 being a bit more leafy. Pretty marginal differences though except for the 8000.
Getting nice and frosty - do you think they will go the full 10 weeks?

Yes that seems to be the case, I have ordered 30 new dual row strips around 3-4000K. I won't know until I get them, the problem with Ebay sellers and their laging datasheets.
but given the difference is so minimal, I figure it prolly won't do that big a difference. From what I have read from other LED growers, it's very mixed. Some recommend 3000K and others claim better results from 4000K, so I figure it might not matter much in the end.

The leafy 6500K might prove to yeald better, the buds are bigger and all the leafs are tightly packed in trichomes. I already now wonder how much to trim off, and how much I should keep.

Keep watching, we are getting closer to the end. Another 20 days or so, and we should be ready to harvest.

Not sure how I will go about the smoke test, besides I will collect the top buds. Most exposed to the specific spectrum, lable them and get them dry and cured.
I think I will ask a mate if he will help me out with the smoke test, being honest my tastebuds are not that great or I don't have a high number. What ever the reason, im not great at picking up the different notes in the flavor.
To me it's more in the line of, this taste nice and rich or it's just pretty bland and borring. My nose is much better, and during flower I have no problem picking up the aromas and different smell in different pheno's. But come smoke time, it often have to be pungent for me to taste the minor differences in terp profiles between phenos.

Im thinking this will be the same, with one strain grown under different spectrums. I can smell a clear difference in a few of them, most pungent is still the small 8000K buds.

Almost full house


But a bunch of LED's on the 3000K Strips have died, they are running with the same drivers.
Getting the same voltage and current as the other strips, but all the failed strips are of the 3000K spectrum.



Took a look at the other light, and yes same problem with the 3000K strip. Im guessing bad production!
