Mars Hydro has generously sent me a TS 3000 for testing and fedex tracking says it will be here tomorrow so i went ahead and got the Mars Hydro 5x5 tent which i won in a contest earlier this summer set up with ventilation so all i need to do is plug the lamp in and load the plants into the tent.


pretty basic set up,got a 6 inch fan hooked to a 6x24 inch carbon filter for exhaust,and a 4 inch fan for intake air. i will add an oscillating fan once the light arrives and i can see where it fits best.


for this run i have 9 plants already in 2 gallon pots to speed things up a bit and get to flowering as soon as possible. once the plants have a chance to adjust to the tent i will up-pot them to 5 gallon pots for flower and give them 2-3 weeks to size up then switch to 12/12.


this run will be


3x sunset sherbet
3x peanut butter breath
3x Mac1


i currently have sunset sherbet and peanut butter breath in my led room under horticulture lighting group 550 panels and will be running these varieties under 1000w hps in a bit..

the plants will be grown in pro mix hp and using general organics veganic line along with roots organics hp and hpk,silica blast,general hydroponics floralicious bloom,and olympus up liquid lime for pH up.


the plan is to up-pot to 5 gallon pots then install a trellis and allow the plants to get a good start on filling the trellis then flip them to 12/12 in 2-3 weeks then install a second trellis during flower to hold the buds up...




my current led grow at 7 weeks

it is a nicely made tent,very sturdy,good zippers...


i will do my best to give the light a fair run,but give this model a look since the drivers are detachable and they come with long enough cords to run them outside the tent so a good summer option...and reasonably priced...
