I think for veg they r ok, but don't think the penetration is good for flowering..

I like the concept of led's n lower temp's
I still have my old ballasts, fixtures and lights if I don't get a good yield.

Edit: The Buds are looking pretty good, just kinda small

Hey 420 , your buds look good , blurple LED's don't have the penetration of stronger COB LED 's like I mentioned before , I made the transition from a 600w hid for flower to +400w of COB LED's and they are up to par when it comes to yield , compared to the 600 watter .

I think it's the multiple points of light and the heat spread on smaller light points (Instead of a huge bulb in the middle) that makes my leds efficient covering every bit of my space , all my colas glisten, even the lower buds grow evenly , hopefully you can also go this route .

The initial investment to me is worth it , and comparable to hid's and withe less power drawn , either way good luck !!! FSG.

Hey FakeSunGrower - Question: What is a good brand of COB LED (fully assembled) to look at?

I'm not looking for cheap, I'm looking for very good.

Thanks!

Any ideas will be appreciated.

Hey 420 , I'm glad you are looking into cobs led's , I can suggest timber grow lights , THEY HAVE TO BE ASSEMBLED , but it's fail proof with color coded wiring , they have different kits but I suggest the 200w citizen CLU48 , you can buy them separately but this kits has everything you need and matched , just take your time , if you can grow , you can assemble this light.

BTW I HAVE NO ASSOCIATION with the sellers , I just think that their price is fair , there's other Sellers like cobkits(.)com with great prices , whatever you decide I will definitely lend a hand , FSG.

Cool Morning Pictures

The Buds are looking good - couple more weeks



Flowering under the Vipraspectra 600 and 90w RED LED



Then we'll check the yields
