Click image for larger version  Name:	20210715_123722.jpg Views:	0 Size:	262.3 KB ID:	17898156 i will most likely take the driver off an put on a nearby shelf, that should make it a bit lighter, although not a heavy unit anyway.

74, Titoon and Phenome,
welcome in. Get comfy as it's gonna be a good one.


This Lemonn Mochi is going l.e.d.

She got a bit nibbled and needs a bit of thinning
​​​out but I think she will do well.
Indoor pics in the make.

Thanks Burtz. It's pretty bright,
I need to get a light meter to check levels.

day 1 of flower starts today.

This will give me a good feel for what this light can do.
Then, we do a full grow from seed/clseed to harvest,
To see how the plants respond
And quality of the bud,
under l.e.d.
I will also have HPS and CMH lights going aswell.
Not a true side by side but will show the potential/
Weakness of each.

Yeah, these are pretty bright.
you can also turn them down, if needed
Which is super handy in these heatwaves.

Hey there, been super busy but here's what's been going on...
The big Lemon Mochi is having a few niggles with headroom.
As that plant was so big.
And my ceilings are low at just over 6ft.
So It's either gonna get tied down or moved over under the HPS.
Got a bunch of smaller clones wich have been getting blasted by the FCE 3000.
For the last few days.
The plants do seem to love the l.e.d light
With all leaves pointing up loving life. Started the clones on 50% power. After a few days I turned it up a bit to 60/70%and you see the difference clearly.
Here's some pics of the smaller Lemon Mochi's.
Having trouble posting pics for some reason.
Already tried to post twice so I'll edit them in after.
Updates will be coming weekly from now on so get comfy and let's grow some fat l.e.d flowers dripping with resin..
