VerdantGreen's Quarters - 187 watt LED - Organic Modular ScrOG

Hi guys and gals , for those of you who have been following my previous grow diary, this will all look rather familiar - but ive decided to try an LED lamp in there again as a replacement for my 250w HPS.
Having done a few grows in my micro cab with an LED of the same spectrum as this one, i have found the quality to be a bit better and the flowering to be a bit quicker than HPS.
The new lamp is an HGL 126X2-pro (with 3w LED's) and uses 187 watts from the wall, which is a considerable power saving over the 250 HPS which actually uses over 300 watts
I used an LED of similar wattage in here a year or two ago and although the grams per watt were good, the overall yield from the cab was better with the hps. what i am hoping for this time is to get a total yield that is comparable to the HPS - hopefully LED tech has improved enough for that to be possible. We will see.
some pics
here are the vent holes in the base of the cab - there are actually a few more holes down each side now. i pack this cab very full of buds and this hollow floor vent system seems to handle it with a 4" temp controlled fan keeping the environment stable

her is a tray with a waterproof pipe in the middle to let the air through the central vent hole

here are the new plants - as you can see ive gone back to regular pots as the smart pots didnt seem to increase yields and were a bit of a wind-up to water as it tends to p1ss out the side holes. also the old pots were slightly shorter and i need as much height as i can gain because i need to keep the lamp at least a foot from the plants.


the plants were potted up today in my organic soil mix (slightly teaked - more about that later) and with a bark mulch
the line up -
back left quarter - Shark1
back right quarter - C4D no4 pheno
front left quarter - MMG
front right quarter - Chem D
am planning to flip them to 12/12 and fit the modular screens on friday. you can see the legs for one screen are already in place

fingers crossed for a good grow... hopefully there are a few scrogging tricks that i have yet to share with you all
VG

nameless, rusty - welcome!

GP73LPC - great to have you along - ive got a pic of the power consumption that i'll post in your thread

nugbuckets - sounds cool i'll check out your grow

Duplicate - its a pretty tough test for an LED to match up to what i yield in this cab with my 250 hps (about 10 oz last run) - i'll be very happy if i can get close to those yields with a lamp that saves me 40% or so on power consumption

mitch - thanks dude

VG

Where I live power is expensive so I'm more interested in efficiency than gross yield.
