  1. i haven’t used leds before i’m looking for an led equivalent of a 600watt hps for a straight swap if any one has any idea and are the as good as hps i was thinking quantum board samsung leds
  2. I’m new to the LED grows and just bought a Zeus 600w pro 2.7 pre owned for £400 and I’m looking for another one to fill my 1.2x2.4 loft tent. It’s looking a bit hard to find another similar 2nd hand one close to me so I’m wondering what’s the best prices people can find on new ones. Thanks in advance
  3. Hi Guys After a long time of looking on here I decided to join up and start getting involved hopefully. So after years of running just your average 600w hps lights I decided to buy a 1000w 400v De lamp a few months ago and to say I’m impressed with it would be an understatement,the only negative being the heat it generates,especially after that hot summer we’ve just had. Now I’m at the stage where I want to replace my light in my 1.2 x 2.4m tent and I was set on getting 2 x 600w 400v fixtures with a 315 cmh in the middle or even 2 of the 750 Gavitas as at least during the winter I can turn them up. Now after reading numerous posts here at length I’m thinking about getting 2 of the 600w Zeus pro LEDs instead. I’d just like to know what people really think of them and would the yield be comparable to the alternative hps/cmh set up I’ve been thinking of. I have read on several forums that people are hitting 30+ from a single dialled in Zeus pro. I’d be happy with 25 each light so 50 total. Is this really realistic? id be really interested to here people’s opinions on this TT

  5. Hello & Welcome First off, massive thanks to Paradise for the opportunity to run these We shall endeavor to do the fabled strain justice. Paradise SENSI STAR. Blurb says; So, according to that I should have flowered 20 instead of the ones I did. I try to keep below 20 at all times so I am just running these with a long veg. Whoop whoop for guidelines Packaging details; Environmental aspects; Seedlings go under a 2 tube T5 for a couple of weeks, small mother/seedling cabinet. They then go under a 250w in a DR90 while they get potted up and topped etc. They then go into a Hydrolab 120s, under a 600w adjustable. I grow in coco, using hesi (softwater) feed, some root stim during early stages and at each pot up. I do not use boosts or other snake oils. The story so far; They went into Jiffy pellets around the 14th of August, by the 16th we had movement; and by the 19th we had life; You will notice that only 4 of the initial 6 sprouted. 4 weeks later (all units are estimated), we have the following to ogle; You will see the runty one on the front right, more on mutant later. Speed forward 8 days and the following sight greets you; And if we skip on a few more days to October the 7th we see this; On the 10th I topped 2 of them; Today, we mark the day that they went into the flower tent. 9 weeks today will see me chopping on December the 16th, 10 weeks will be the 23rd so christmas chopping is in order. Today they looked like this; You can clearly see the extra height that the non topped plant has. This one will be bent and tied over the next week IF she gets to big during stretch The album which contains the above images plus those I chose not to post is found here; I will do an update on the mutant next time, she seems to have topped herself As they are now in flower, we should really do updates frequently. As always though, expect a lot of bollox, no regard for ceremonies and a liberal dosing of flying fucks. No doubt Zem will be along soon, telling me I am doomed from the off as his grow is better nannnaanana Stay safe and well and avoid pebbles. Cheers
  6. a 600w grow light? Im only asking as I dont really see it to be fair. I grow (or have grown) with all manner of lights, but not CMH, I use CFL for veg only as the buddage is a bit light any airier than HPS, even when you pound the plants with lumens... I would assume the same principal with CMH, but stand ready to be corrected... Surly the 315w would have the same efrect as CFL lumenwise? After all I understand the 'closer to daylight' spctrums etc. The same can be said the for PAR of CFL on paper, but you just need the light, its pretty much as simple as that. WE tried sulphur plasma for a while as well, the bit I still dont get is; if the light is so close to daylight, then are there two bulbs needed again?...Surely if it was 'that close' then one bulb would suffice, after all its not like the sun changes bulb, it just gets either closer or further from the equator... I would have thought that the PAR of the CMH would make up, at best, the odd 85w to equal a 400w HID - but taking that to a 600w HID comparrisson makes me dubious... after nearly 30 years of cannabis cultivation I have seen and grown with many things but I aint never seen a light that performs equally to a light twice its lumencount. I like to big up my grow style as much as the next man, thats why, like everyoine else, Im posting here - but really? 315 is the new 600? - Spock with a beard? ! think not.

  9. Hi all, Please bear with me as I want to pick your juicy brain. ALOT. I'm a first time grower and was hoping to pick your brains. ( I've posted already but since reconsidered my set up ) If I show you my shopping list please can let me know your thoughts. Whether it's something I've missed or dont have enough of, please let me know. 5 plant scrog grow. 1x tent ( 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.8 ) 1x 8 inch fan / carbon filter kit 1 x 600w light HPS (would I need 2) 1x ph tester 1x ec meter Coco nutriants A + B Perlite 1x 20 Litre Cana coco 2x 50 Litre 12 Litre fabric pots x 5 Bruce banner seeds x 5 Twin pack Rope ratchet x2 2x mini usb desk fans 5 pack of syringe Thermostat/humidity stat Timer plug Scrog net Ph up/down So I'm thinking of growing/scroging 5 plants. I hear bruce banners are good for scrogging. Let me know your thoughts/experiences. If you wouldnt mind answering a few questions also? It would be appreciated. 1. Lighting - 1x 600w hps sufficient for 5 scrog plants. To handle the limited light I was going to use the middle of the net so there is 5 plants in an X shape. So there lights have less of a canopy to light. 2. Lighting - If the answer is no and I would need two lights. Can you reduce the size of the pots or would you have to do less plants. Or is the answer simply a smaller tent. (I wanted a larger tent so I can increase number of plants I grow once I become competent) 3. Seedling - how much light do you give seedlings? I plan on using the paper towel method to germinate and was thinking of putting them straight into the 12 litre pots once the seeds are ready. Would you go to a smaller pot and then into the 12 litre? 4. Veg - How long would you veg for based on my plan? Time is no issue, I'd rather a better yield. 4. Scrog net - how high would position the net from the plant? 5. Light height - how high above the net would position the light? Growing bruce banner and I have 1.8 in height. Training plans Please let me know if I'm missing a step or going wrong. I was planning on topping them two or three times early in the veg stage. Whilst regularly trimming the bottom of the plant to increase the energy going to the top of the plant. Once they have grown about 6 inches above the scrog net, start to train them to grow out instead of up. I'm unsure on how long to veg them - any advice? And once I switch to the flowering stage I will add an additional net to support tops of the plant as they grow up. Do I need to do any trimming once I switch to flowering? Thank in advance for you help and please ask me anything you might need to know in order to help. Major flop.
  10. Hi guys, been growing soil just over a year . Tents is 1.2, 8inch extract, passive intake, 600w , lights on 25-26, off 16-18. Feeding bio bizz nutes. Use plant magic soil as was getting issues in biobizz soil. yield anywhere between 10-15 from4-5 plants. 4/5 week veg. Topped and trained under mesh screen scrog type setup. looking to hit a bit higher yield . Reading of people getting close to 1gpw were as i am closer to 0.5gpw. any input would be great even considering hydro but it does scare me slightly with all the ph ec chillers and pumps. thanks

  14. Hey. I have decided to give growing a try. I have been smoking weed for years but I think it's time I stop breaking the bank. It's time I also get my friends to stop breaking the bank, so learning how to yield high will be very important to me to learn. However, I have got an autoflower for my first grow to gain an understanding of the basics of growing marijuana before I move onto multiple expensive projects. Pot: 6Gallon fabric pot Light: 600W Light from Amazon - Soil and Nutrients purchased/planning to use: BioBizz All Mix soil BioBizz Root Juice BioBizz Bio Grow BioBizz Bio Bloom BioBizz Top Max Aim of this harvest: To learn how to grow safely. And I mean safely because I want to experiement in the future and make sure it was my fault if it goes wrong by having the previous knowledge. I was told that I don't need to give no nutrients till the fourth week as it's an autoflower that could get nutrient burned? Basically, I don't want to hear from people who think my weed is doomed and give me advice I should have done. Or if you have advice that don't work here, then you're waffling and you're making the process longer for me to understand. That is called a smartass. Help me ahead and if you want to completely steer me off what I'm doing and make major flaws then have a better plan that has guaranteed results. Thank you.
  15. Hey guys, I've just started my first grow around 2 weeks ago. My lighting setup was : Lumii 600w Dual Spec HPS with Lumii 600w Dimmable ballast and reflector. Yesterday an engineer from my Tv and internet company called and was checking the wires, he then knocked on my door and said there is a massive interference coming from my house, I thought nothing of it and left the lights with timer on. He called again today saying the interference is still there and that he will have to disconnect my services if the interference doesn't stop. I told him to wait a minute, went in to my dr and unplugged the ballast from power and then asked him if the interference is still here and he said no. He showed me a graph and log and it clearly showed the interference only being there when the lights were switched on. This means that either my ballast or bulb were causing a massive interference in the area affecting the nodes. I've unplugged the ballast and HPS and won't be plugging it back in until I know how to sort this issue. My setup is 1x1x2m and I'm wondering if I buy a 1000w LED on Amazon for £180 will this be enough to replace the 600W HPS? I'd appreciate your help on this one ! It's quite stressful
  16. Hi all Does anybody know the answer to the question in the title? Reason im asking as I am in week 4 flower, starting week 5 tomorrow and I feel the plants are coming on very slowly, and my Swiss skunk is supposed to be renowned to be a fast finisher, well I can tell you now it isnt. So I can only think 600w is not enough for the size of my room. It is hung vertically inside a 1m parabolic. My room is 2.3m wall to wall wide (7.5ft) by 2m long from wall to door. But the plants dont come that far forward, when they were vegging and small I could keep all plants in a 4ft sq space but as they will out they are literally filling the while 2.3m width now. But I don't think the flower production is that fast at all, do I need to upgrade to 1000w to kick out the most of that space? Parabolic is hung around 1.7m tall The only other thing I can think of is it sleeping temps are high because of being in a loft. Lights come on at night and off during day, now I can see why that would cause stretch and stress but I dont see that in the plants. If you would like to see I have a diary (link in sig) this is not an advertisement but if I might need to upgrade my lights then today is the best day to do so as I am busy rest of week so it all depends what you guys think.

  17. Hi there, new to this forum so your help would be really appreciated! I have a 1.2x1.2x1.9 grow room that I have built, it took me some time and built it to perfection. I have 4 cuttings that I have planted in 3.8l fabric pots, gelato strain. They are on the cuttings and seedlings section on my grow chart, using mainly samurai nutrients. Finally got the temp right, about 21.5 lights off, 25 lights on. Temp has previously got pretty high due to working out the right timer settings on radiator, intake etc. I have noticed that my leaves have started to very slightly turn yellow on the ends, and have started to curl downwards - can anyone advise their experience on overcoming this? I am going to leave them for two days without feed as I believe it may be possibly an overfeed of nutrients or something, then next feed just give water to flush anything out. Does this seem the best course of action? Many thanks in advance!

  19. Well for fear of it going flat I wasn’t gonna start the diary so soon, but it’s probs the only way I’ll be able to keep track of days and dates. This is my 3rd grow, previous 2 were Hempy’s too. I didn’t go too badly, the last grow ended up with a tent full but, the quality suffered. This time I’m going to have to learn a bit of patience and settle in for a longish haul There’s loads of great diaries and grows documented on the site, but I’ve got to say this grow has been inspired by @Green-trialist, his adventures with a single plant scrog in 1m and 0.8m tents 600w & 400w respectively were enlightening to a newbie grower fumbling about. I’m not looking to break any records or re-invent the wheel, I just want to keep it as simple as I can and, hopefully end up with a tin of quality street. So here we go, Dinafem Early Amnesia CBD. Single plant scrog, 40l Hempy Bucket, 3:1 perlite/vermiculite, a 7/16th hole drilled so the bottom of the hole is 2 inches from the bottom of the bucket, the bottom of the Hempy filled with perlite to just above the top of the hole. I’ve got a Lighthouse Max 1 x 1 x2m tent in a detached garage, Lat 52N with enough West in it for a bit of influence from the gulf stream, but it’s still gonna be a bit chilly come January. I’ve got insulation under the tent. There’s a 125L Ruck extraction fan with the thermostatic control, Rino Pro 5 inch filter, passive intake, got a couple of tube heaters and an oil filled radiator, there’s a selection of fans to go at. The scrog net has been made, pvc tubing and fittings, 50mm plastic garden mesh. I popped the seed in a riot cube on Saturday evening 30th Sept. Steady temp @ 23.5c. Tuesday morning she had popped up albeit firmly hanging on to the casing. I’d managed to dampen it so switched on the lamp (125w CFL). Next day bit of a poke with a jeweller’s screwdriver to release the casing and all was fine. I don’t mind the riot type cubes but they do tend to dry out fairly rapid, this in mind and from having learned a bit previously, once I saw the tap root at the bottom of the cube I popped it in to the Hempy. I experimented the last grows, it was certainly better for keeping the cube moist getting them into the growing media early. I also tried using smaller Hempy cups before transplanting in to the final bucket. The seedlings that went straight in to the final buckets seemed to not miss a beat. Anyway it’s going to have a week or so under the cfl, I’ve then got a 400w MH for what’s expected to be 6 weeks or so veg ,before the 600w HPS for flowering, I’ve got a new lamp, 600w Gavita Enhanced for digital ballasts, I’m hoping my Lumatek digi ballast will get some sunshine out of it at 660w. The same as the last grows it’s going to be Ionic one part nutes, grow and bloom, no boost or anything, Formulex for a week or so until kind of established. My tap water (from private well via treatment system) has an ec of .2 and Ph of 6.7 The perlite was well washed before mixing it with the vermiculite. I then made 25 lt of feed up with the formulex and poured it through( ec 0.8 inc background, Ph 5.9) popped the cube in and another small water round. It takes 1.5l to get 0.5l run off but I’m putting another few litres through to keep things fresh in the bottom of the Hempy….Roll on February! Day 5 above ground.

  21. Hi all I have purchased a bundle of new gear to set up and wondering the best strain to grow to suit it. I've done a few single planters but not anything of this size, I'm looking for strains decent yield, take well to topping, With nice smell/flavour and obviously best for my setup. So here goes this is what I have purchased: Dr150 tent 1.5x1.5x2m 2x 600w hid dimmable with mantis reflectors...happy to use 1 or both 200mm fan Carbon filter Nft systems 424x 2 and the nft gt100... worth using or not? t5 starter lamp So what strain would you recommend and how many? Thanks in advance 邏
  22. Hiya Peeps, I've just found my lamp emitting a pulsing light and the cable off the ballast is distinctly warm. It is a Maxilight Digilight Pro 600w running a Solistek 10K halide bulb, does anyone have any ideas what's causing this? Clearly it is now turned off and cooling down so I can switch bulbs, I guess what I want to know is if it turns out to be a dodgy bulb will my ballast have been damaged or is it the other way round....
  23. My growlight smells like a fire lighter, like paraffin, and is extremely hot! Temps have gone up about 10c and was fine for the 1st few weeks, Iam using sun master bulbs.
  24. Ive been using feminized seeds for a while but,When i first did growing yr 2000. This is what i was told regarding regular seed. the seeded plant was an f1.its clone f2, which should be used as mother,and f3 the ones you finally smoke. So is this still true?, ever been true?,can the f1s and f2s not be smoked? or is it just the best way to find best clones for mothers, smoke the f1s and see which is best smoke and use the f2cutting in waiting as mother? therfore your f3s are off your best tasting plant. im thinking of doing regular seeds i want to try ugorg blues. or have i just thrashed everyones head as much as mine is?
