Some of the best buds I've ever had foxtailed. Got my hands on cotton candy a few years back, it honestly looked like a ball of cat hair, but man was she potent.

Just sampled her yesterday... buds seem to shrink more once dried than those grown under HPS. Once grinded though, gains more volume.

I grinded one of the foxtails and a "normal" bud... felt like grinder was full of sugar. Fingers stuck to everything.

Seems to pack more potency than previous run

@blynx

i got to page 44 before i gave up on finding more bulb tests.

would be very keen to see some measurements on common big-box 100W equiv LEDs including power draw, if possible

in particular, Feit's 17.5 watt https://www.costco.com/Feit-Electric...100405758.html

and Ecosmart's 14.5 watt https://www.homedepot.com/p/EcoSmart...UL01/300377378

also, anybody have comments on build quality or reliability with some brands vs others?

noknees: regarding brands, you usually get what you pay for. GE, Philips, Osram, seem to be good quality brands with different "sweetspots" regarding şK, Watts and price.

Personally I've found total wattage to be really related to space. You should aim at creating a ceiling of homogeneous light intensity.

So once you decide on total wattage and design on how to spread it, it really boils down to decide between whatever offer you can source the cheapest with better quality, which usually restricts offer to your available ones locally.

Aim for 30W per sq feet and proceed from there.

The sweet spots are usually at the 9-17W range. Tip: The more LED chip count in the SIL, the better.

i'll be testing a few bulbs here in the near future.

just checked out the wm/gv 13.5W @5k

first two pulled exactly 13.5 from the wall, and read what you'd expect on the lux meter

16 chips in a ring around the outside

Wasn't sure if I uploaded this pic right so I'm just gonna send this and c what happens. But anyways this was a plant I grew from bag seed about 6 months ago. Had roughly 160w of sil's with one 13w UVB bulb for more trich production. It's in a 5 gal tote and got fox farms nutes. Vegged for roughly 5 weeks and sadly I only got to flower her 47 days but the final results were pretty good. Pulled 105 grams of dry herb and just super sticky. I've got some new girls going now. One is 3 weeks into flower and the other 2 go into flower today. All grown under sils and these plants r just beastin. I'm expecting at least half a pound from each plant. Plants r short and bushy with 100+ tops. Dont have a trellis so I just do LST and supercrop. And I've been feeding them the advanced nutrient trio set and they seem to be loving it. I also got fox farms organic nutes but the advanced nutes r better and u can get them for roughly the same price. I'll upload more photos of my last crop and get some new ones of my previous girls.

BigHitGuy420:

Opening the link works, trying to display the picture inline with the post doesn't for me, did you set the album as public?

Surrounding the picture with url blocks:

[url]https://www.icmag.com/ic/album.php?albumid=75732...[/url]

Should display it inline with the post. In my signature you have links to guides on how to upload/post pictures.

It certainly looks dank! is that pic from chop time? how was the smoke?

Sounds spot on... Price? pictures w/o the dome, are great to document and to spot white brands...
