VerdantGreen's low wattage veg/flower cab - Organic soil, 44W LED.

hi all,
i've been shuffling around my lights between cabs and have a new addition… the custom 104w LED ran too hot in this 2'x15" cab because the ventilation isn't that efficient (air comes in at the top and leaves at the bottom which works against the fact that heat rises). so ice replaced it with one of the new 'eco+' units from HGL - a 126X-ECO+ which uses 0.5 watt leds. one great advantage of this is that it has no fans - so silent operation, and the hope is that it will run cooler, and that although it uses much less watts - it virtually fills the roof of the cabinet so the clusters are well spaced out and also a bit closer to the plant.

a bit of background here, im rethinking the way i grow and in particular plant numbers - because there are new sentencing guidelines in the UK where the shallowest sh1t you get into is for 9 plants or less - so rather than flower 4 plants in my 'quarters' cab it will be two, planted in 2'x1' troughs with 2x1 screens.

and that's where this cab is going to come in - it is 2' x 15" and so will fit one of the troughs inside. what i would like to eventually do is use this cab for the transition from veg to flower in a perpetual system. i take a cut and in a month i will root and pre veg it in my mum cabinet under t5's. then it will go into this low wattage cab and be veg'ed for another two weeks and flowered for 2 weeks before going into the big cab under the stronger light for the rest of flower - lets say 8 weeks give or take. this means the whole perpetual cycle will have a max of 4 plants in existence at any one time - leaving me 5 more plants to play with up to my limit of 9. (i have one other flower cab - with the 104w custom light which takes 1 plant, so i can have 3 mums and one plant to play with over that). eventually i hope to start a thread which will encompass the whole 2 cab system - which is why i have put this thread in Grow diaries with my big cab rather than in micro grows.

but for now we aren't in the cycle and the other thing i was curious about was how well this unit would work for a whole flower cycle… i have a theory that bubba kush and other broadleaf types may well manage quite well in lower light conditions… plus i want to try and make some bubba kush S1's having successfully reversed a plant with CS and got pollen a month or two ago. if i can make enough seeds i hope to list some on seedbay too.

Right, enough blurb - heres some pics.
here is the cab with LED hung and a couple of Bubba x Cherry bomb at the back, more about those later

here is the light hanging at an odd angle to get a snap of the heatsinks which stick out of the top of the light. the main bit of the light is just half an inch or so thick. it also has a light intensity dial.. which i turned up to max and then forgot about!

here are the group of 4 bubba kush x cherry bomb girls - this was part of another bubba breeding project where i was going to do a bx to the bubba but ended up with 4 out of 4 girls so that will have to wait. i have half a dozen more seeds and at least the girls will give me an idea of what traits CB brings and how bubba like the cross is. i'll likely do some lst or something on them soon



more pics in a sec.

and here is the bubba - which has actually been in the cab for a few weeks. as you can see it's on one of my old screens which allows the other plants to fit the cab too.
at 3 days


at 10 days



and at yesterday at 18 days - i pollinated a couple of buds yesterday as a contingency and will pollinate a lot more next week.

hey killerweed, yeah the bubba was yellowing a bit from getting rootbound before it went in - and its pulled itself round and looks great now.
bubba is weird, the pistils die back very easily ive found. the upper buds especially tend to brown off early under the stronger led so i may find that this light suits it well.

and im looking forward to smoking the Bubba x CB - even though what i really wanted was a nice kushy male for the BX

thanks irie, its not like the law has changed so much as they set down some plant numbers for sentencing guidelines and up to 9 is the lowest category, and my grow is so small that i should really be able to stay under that most of the time. its gonna take some organisation though

---

i pollinated pretty much the whole of the bubba today, or attempted to - we'll see how it takes. the few buds i dusted a last week look promising. ive been busy with the bubba x CB's too. i'll try and post some pics on friday

thanks nader!

heres the bubba today at 25 days.

and here is a bud. you can see the ends of most of the pistils are withered which hopefully means successful pollination


and the bubba x CB have been ment over in a kind of linear scrog just to get a few more buds to the canopy and lower the height
heres 1 and 2 i think. think they are about 2 weeks in

and 3 and 4

hey yosun its going pretty well, i grabbed a quick pic of the bubba today that looks like it is fairly well seeded, and ill get some snaps of the 4 bubbaxCB on tuesday

yeah i managed to get this light before hgl moved factories in china so i guess there's been a delay in getting production of them back on. time will tell but so far it looks to be performing pretty well, scrog allows me to get all the buds in the bright light which helps im sure as this lamp will lack the penetration of the higher watt models... but im convinced the 'no fan' units will be popular
