Dual SP-150 in a 3'x3'

A little comparison grow testing LEDs. Thanks to Mars for the light. Some specs on the plan:


LED Space
  • 3'x3'x6' tent
  • 2(qty) SP 150 LED lights (~260w total)
  • DTW Rockwool with raw salts and 4 feeds per day around 700 ppm (@.5)

HID Space
  • 3' x 3' x 7' grow space
  • 400w HPS
  • DTW Coco, raw salts, 3 feeds per day @ ~700ppm

Strains
  • OG Chem from Ganja Rebel - (SFV x Chem) x [5G's Yellow x (SFV x Chem)]
  • SUSQ Chem from a buddy - (Chem 4 x SD IBL) x (Chem D x SD IBL)
That's pretty much it, basic and quick run just testing out the lights and comparison to the usual HID. I've been fighting some issues in the grow space that seem to be clearing up, so hopefully things will stay smooth.

First impressions. The SP-150 lights seem well designed and sturdy. The space is running cool, almost too cool, compared to HID. Keeping the LED lights about 18" away from the canopy and running out of headroom quickly.


A few pics from the LED, we're well underway:

LED - Day 1 (wet from a foliar)




LED - Day 9




LED - Day 15




Good vibes all, excited to see how they turn out!

LED (SP-150) - DAY 21

Thanks for stopping by all.

LED Day 21 update... If you're having trouble with auto-rotating pics through IC's uploader like I was, see kritios's post down below! Thanks bud


Plants are doing great though! Definitely reduced stretch compared to HID, which right now is a good thing since I'm out of vertical space...

It should be getting interesting now with some stacks on stacks of buds starting up

It is okay for the picture issue. we all can rotate it correctly.

Frow now on, they might grow vertically and become taller.

That's a great-lookin bunch of girls! Nice work.



You can fix the picture issue. If you open the picture with a photo editor and adjust the size (even slightly),then it won't rotate when you upload. Why? IDK but it works.

Thanks all, and especially for the picture note. Hopefully they stay healthy for the next couple months and reward with some satisfying pictures and meds. There is a similar 3' x 3' space running 400w of HPS with the same cuts that will be making an appearance for a bit of a comparison


I did get a 2' x 2' tent from Mars alongside the SP-150. While small, it should be quite useful as a pollen tent for males.

Here's a reversed OG Chem and SUSQ Chem hanging out in the Mars Hydro 2' x 2' tent. Plants were reversed with homemade colloidal silver. I generally produce it as needed and make a quart of CS solution every two days. Spraying approximately 1-2 weeks before flip and daily until 21-28 days as male flowers start to open up.

There's low level lighting and minimal ventilation while they start to drop pollen over the next several weeks in their mars hydro tent isolation chamber.

The tent is well sealed. I've got pinholes all over a different tent from amazon, and through the zippers. The Mars hydro tent seems to have better light proofing without the same light-leak issues as of yet. It came with a few extra straps and attachments that are useful. The zippers could use a little oil, but a little harder to use is likely due to the additional lightproofing materials around the zippers which is preferred. All said, it seems like a great tent and will work well for male pollen collection.
