VerdantGreen's organic modular ScrOG cabinet - 236W LED

Hi everybody, here is my new grow. Ive swapped the powerful 3w diode light for 2 of the 1w units because i was struggling with height issues. My cab has only 3-4' headroom and these less poweful lights mean that i can grow my plants taller without them bleaching... also the LED clusters are spread nice and evenly over the top of the whole cabinet which should give a nice level of light all round without any dull spots . Luckily i was asked to set up a tall cabinet for a friend and i sold the pro unit to him.

so the cabinet is 2ft deep by 28" wide, there is only just enough room to hang these two HGL 126X2 lights with a sufficient gap around them. power draw was measured with a kill- a watt at 236 watts for both units together.


and here is the cab with the plants added. these pics are from friday and we are at 3 weeks flower (up until now they have been under the 126X2 pro unit)

and the plants, quite a varied selection this run, but the modular scrog allows me to mix strains and types without compromising the yield. i can also allow a decent bit of height above the screens as the plants can get up to arond 6" from the lights
soil is a new organic mix which i will list the ingredients of later. im hoping to be able to recycle this mix
this is my Original Haze cut (haze6) - at 3 weeks



and going to the other end of the genetics spectrum here is a bubba kush

and the third plant is my Blueberry cut which i am trying something a little different with, ive trained this onto a 2x1' screen so that it takes up half of the cabinet. the motivation for this is that i'm trying to keep my plant count as low as possible. caacity of the trough is 29 litres which is about twice as big as the pots i normally use. again this is at 3 weeks, basically just finished stretching.



somewhere i have a pic or two of the plants when i fitted the screens and i'll dig them out and post em up when i get a minute.

cheers,

VG

p.s. i intend to hang a UV t5 tube in between the 2 LED's as soon as i get the chance!

hi ixnay, as i mentioned i'll try and hang a UV tube i there, but the LED spectrum is 10% green so no need for that. green should help penetrate the canopy but also the large spread of light sources overhead should help with that too.

setaemies, the Bb was vegged for 3 ro 4 weeks i think. it has a very big stretch on it which is why i used it as the first plant for this double size screen. so far so good, just needs a little bit of 'fine training'
the UV, yeah i wouldnt want it to degrade the optical perspex used in the X lenses, but i think i have a way to avoid it.....

paulo, thanks man , yeah - so far so good with the new mix, i'll post it up.

Abner Doon - thanks, im hoping this setup will be with me for a while to come, kind of feels a bit extravagant to have two lights in there but they still use a lot less power than the 250 i used to have (which actually used 300w)

mexcurandero - the original haze is from seedsman in UK, they were selling off their old stock cheep a while back. i got two phenos and kept this one - quite mexi dominant so it has the capacity to get some big fat buds for a haze. the other one was much more thai. nice spicy catpiss smell and lovely high. not the easiest plant to run but it stretched a lot less from cutting than it did from seed.
