Thank you.
Here is my choice for this run.
Seedsman Zkittlez photo


I will most likely scrog these. My method consists of letting them stretch out some so that I have something to work with in the scrog.


HGL gave me a recommendation of a 15"-12" light height.
Waiting to hear back from HLG about the their recommended height.


These will be grown in coco with Dyna-Gro nutrients.

Thank you all for your interest in this grow.

Day 2

Transplanted and topped.
16/8 Light Cycle
Light height 15"
going to try to get them to stretch out some so I can put in the net and get the scrog going.
I will also start defoliating the bottom soon.

Thanks man!
I just hear a hum from the tent, nothing loud. My exhaust is louder than the fans, and not from the fan noise, from sucking air noise going into the filter.
Then again I used to run vented HID, too. I'm used to a lot of fan noise in my grow room. It is probably half as quiet as my room used to be. I'm a rookie to LED, haven't even done a grow with one yet. Other than a bulb DIY thing I made a couple of years ago, but that doesn't count.
I had four 84x's in a tent once, and it was quieter than the HID I took out.
The only way I can see these lights being too loud is if they are in your bedroom or something.

HGL cutting looks more like HPS growth, which is something I prefer. I prefer less leaf in my flower so this should be interesting.

You can run HID a few different ways. I ran it with a 6" fan and duct work going through two 1000's and a 600. Air came in my room from outdoors, went through the lights, then back outdoors. On top of that oscillating fans in each tent, ballasts whirring with their little fans, water trickling, kind of a hum coming from the room in general, but in the next room I can't hear anything.
In my room four of these 84x's on at the same time isn't really heard. I hear them turn on, but that's about it.
My room isn't an industrial complex, either. It's my man cave, too. I watch movies, blast music in there, can talk and everything and it isn't like you are talking over noise or anything. Anyway, the hums are like a background noise for me that I don't even hear any more.

The hum from an air pump in hydro will drive you insane.
