  1. https://ledgrowlights.co.uk/collections/lumatek-led-grow-lights/products/lumatek-100w Lumatek 100W 2.9 Supplement Bars We're one of the first shops to get our hands on these. I know some of you have been waiting a while for them....but they're finally here. They come with their own driver and plug so can be used as a standalone for clones, veg side lighting etc but we've checked them with the 600w Zeus Pro and they slot in nicely between the bars also (although you'll still need to hang them). "A flexible and dynamic solution to improve your grow results. You can either use this light as an add-on for your grow space that lacks light intensity, placing it on the top, side or bottom; or use it as a propagator for clones and seedlings. This light bar is compatible with the Lumatek Digital Panel Plus 2.0 and can be dimmed when connected. This is a great supplementary option not only for those wanting to boost light levels in unique and large footprints but also for propagation and early vegetative growth." https://ledgrowlights.co.uk/collections/lumatek-led-grow-lights/products/lumatek-100w
  2. 7th Sweet Seeds® Grow Diary Competition Just reserving a place for when the time comes to get involved in my first Sweet Seeds® Grow Diary Competition. I initially purchased And included along with my order So I initially thought that I was gonna go with this line-up Sweet Zkittlez®, Sweet Tai®, Red Hot Cookies® and Big Foot® Then after reading what some others here on UK420 were growing for the competition, reminded me of a couple of other strains I'd been interested in for ages. So back on to Sweet Seeds website to place another order. This time I've bought Mohan Ram® and Sweet Afghani Delicious S1® as I do like a high Indica content to help with the pain management and getting a decent sleep Next update will probably be my a photo of the additional seeds and my equipment list and germination plans(once I figure it out). Best of luck to everyone competing on UK420 and on the other included forums I look forward to following along and hopefully having a good laugh with my fellow competitors.

  5. Welcome growers.. This is my micro grow in the shed stealth style! (Attempt) I've been growing outdoors in the UK for the last 5 years with only a cabinet to get my seedlings going. Done the odd seed to harvest with CFLs but nothing special. Then I came across the QX-75 LED board from @diyleduk which looked made to measure for my cabinet and ideal for temps being in the shed. Never using an led before excited to get going was a understatement. Yesterday I received my QX-75 LED through the door from @diyleduk and it's obvious these lights are miles above anything iv seen before for light output to wattage! On full power 75w is crazy bright! Couldn't believe how bright it was. Would like to say a massive thank you to Adam for sorting it out! The light QX-75 Each QX board has 128 leds in total. 120x LM301H (3500k) 6x LM351H (660nm deep red) 2x (730nm far red) And looks pretty The driver has a nice length of cable to reach outside my cabinet and the dimmer switch is a very easy way to adjust wattage The cabinet I decided the cabinet needed upgrading ready for the new light to give me the best chance possible.. Dimensions, 35x35x80cm I put a mini tube heater in and usb fan to help control temps. Then decided I know longer like access from the side. Swapped set up around so I could get to the plants from the front. Both pc fans have acoustic ducting attached. The bottom one bringing in air through the bottom of the shed The top one is connected to my 4" rvk fan that's boxed in for silence sitting on a rhino carbon filter. I then insulted the cabinet.. I put the inkbird probe under shade from the light. Attached a wac1 step controller to my 4" rvk to reduce noise further. Then yesterday I got to do the exciting part.. getting the light in and set up

  7. SCOPEX 900 Full Spectrum LED Grow Light - Available to pre-order NOW Throwing out more useable light than nearly any grow light out there on the market and at a genuinely unbeatable price for such a high-quality LED fixture, this light is a more than worthy upgrade from a 1000W HPS. Even when running at 720 watts, it's able to match the photon output of a 1000W DE HPS and can easily outperform a 1000W single bulb HPS lamp. Matched for 1.5m x 1.5m grow spaces and upwards, you'll have all the usable light you need to get maximum results in this footprint (skill and experience depending, of course). The aim with this new range is to provide a great performing, solidly built light at a price that makes LED growing accessible to as many people as possible. All ScopeX LEDs come with a 5 year warranty for full peace of mind. This light sits at the top end of our £1-per-watt ScopeX range, and at £900, when you compare this light to other similar priced and similar wattage LEDs from other competitors, there should be no doubt about the value-for-money to be had here. We've got a limited quantity available for pre-order and we're getting the first round sent to us by air to get them in as fast for you guys as possible. You can guarantee one for yourself from this first round by following the pre-order link here.

  8. Now with a new, lower price… Elite performance, efficiency and photon distribution is now even more accessible to the grower!

As a result of this, we’ve been able to reduce our RRP - passing this saving on to you and offering even better value for money. Assembled here in the UK, not a single light leaves our premises without being tested by myself or Adam. Our entire PAR+ Pro range really does offer unbeatable value, quality and performance for the grower. The PAR+465 Pro is now just £599 and the PAR+240 Pro just £329! For a more detailed look, follow this link. We're currently in production with our latest batch. Just waiting on some final parts to arrive and then they'll be straight out the door.

  10. Right I’m looking at upgrading my lights for the summer but not sure which unit to go for out of the lumatek Zeus pro 600 or the new diyleduk scopex 680 advanced it will be replacing my 600watt HPS any feed back of either of them would be very helpful. cheers in advance

  12. Hi all DIY'ers, I thought you might like a look at a hybrid light I made from 2x @diyleduk products. First purchase was a 'Scope 275' back in the day, later upgraded just the lighting strips to Scope V2, which offer more deep reds than the original Scope. Then came a High Light 240 lighting board, which I bought after reading the following blurb: "The extremely popular highlight board kit - for true connoisseur growers - is back and better than ever! With new features and an improved spectrum; these are amongst the most advanced LED grow lights on the market.The new "High Light 420" Horticultural LED pcb takes growing to the next level. With a broader UV range, increased Far Red, splash-resistant coating, and a waterproof plug-and-play cable system. With 20% better efficiency than the original High Light boards - over 3 umol/j at low current - these Australian-made grow lights combine top-bin Nichia LEDs with an array of customised highly efficient LED Teknik diodes (420 total), that cover the entire spectral range from UV to Far Red (390nm-780nm) with no supplementary lighting required. A collaboration between Grow Lights Australia and LED Teknik, the High Light 420 board is the most efficient “true” full spectrum, single-channel LED grow light on the market. These new lights have 5% UV and near-UV (390-420nm) and 10% Far Red (700-780nm) for faster growth and essential oil production." Most of which I didn't understand except the bit that says "faster growth and essential oil production", and I was sold. The High Light 240 alone is possibly overkill for an 80x80cm tent but I knew they'd be great together. I bolted a frame together using 40mm aluminium u-channel for the Scope V2 strips, wrapped the frame around the High Light pcb, wired the Scope strips back up in parallel and hung the beast up for my next SCROG. I even sprayed the frame in black paint to make it look nice. Both the Vo ADJ & Io ADJ on the original Scope driver now at lowest setting, which I believe to be 50% - The dimmer on the High Light is set to around 1/4 turn off the lowest setting. In action, both on: Using the Scope V2's to replicate sunrise and sunset, they're on alone for 2 hours before the High Light kicks in, same in reverse, the Scope's fly solo for the last 2 hours. Full sun Temps and RH% sorted My Sassberry (Purple Haze x GG3) looking happy with all that light. Another week and there's no space in there, especially once the grid is installed for an even canopy. So that's it, both lights really compliment each other. With 2x drivers on separate timers, I can play with both to respond to the plants needs. Both on 100% would create a lot of heat and probably burn the plants, but reducing both to half voltage, using only the Scope for the first and last 2hrs, I should keep running costs and heat down.

  19. A massive thank you to everyone who's taken part in our diary competition - @TheGreenShabeenReturns, @HEAVY_SMOKER, @Notorious B.U.D, @Mischief-Crew, @Shumroom, @growinggold, @SYZYGY, @lildaveham, @vince noir rock n roll star, @Moju, @Lazy Dayz, @Dan t, @Ranec, @Văru', @Larry Badgeley, @Sid the sloth, @Geoff, @iShouldCoCo, @Dirk-Diggler There have been way more entrants worthy of the shortlist than I could reasonably list for voting. Me and Adam really felt ruthless not including so many of these but we had to narrow it down as much as possible. With that being said, we couldn't bring ourselves to nominate any less than 8 of you guys. And big shout out to @InTheSystem who has very selflessly bowed out to allow someone else to make the shortlist. Please take a look through each person's amazing diary (link to each below in no particular order) and drop a vote for whoever you think is worthy of winning the £1000 prize, out of the 8 we've shortlisted. Sorry to everyone who didn't make it, it was very close.

  21. Hi lighting folks, does anyone have experience with the Highlight V2 boards? I was looking at the (sold out) Par+ 240v which offers 2x panels for roughly the same price, when the High Light V2 240w caught my eye. I'm def a sucker for extra spectrum, especially when they entice us with 'faster growth, and essential oil production' Spectrum porn: 120x LT-3030 Narrow Band 3000K (CRI 95) 120x Nichia 3030 NF2W757V3-F1 “Vitasolis" 3000K (CRI 80) 90x Nichia 3030 NF2W757HT-F1 5000K (CRI 70) 30x LT-3030 PC Blue (1x 405nm die + 2x 420nm dies) 40x LT-3535 Deep Red (660nm) 20x LT-3535 Infrared (730nm) Anyone use these, or have experience with the V1 High Light boards?
  22. Hey everyone hope your doing well. Wacky times at the minute, I was in the shop and some old fella looked at the till assistant and outreaches his hand after he dug out a treasure trove load of coins from his pocket! Then drops them all on the counter which seemingly took forever haha sounded like hail! But whilst doing this he says "Put them in the charity box Son." and the best it about it was the bloody box was literally 4 inches from where he dropped them onto the counter. The till assistant must have been looking around for Jeremy Beadle. This here diary will be one containing glimpses into what beers I'm drinking for instance, I'm drinking birra moretti tonight. Night before it was erdinger dunkel, that will make your pish smell alright. Usually hit the holsten pils though. The odd funny pic may slip on into the diary and even the occasional joke if they are PC enough. Really looking forward to doing this diary for everyone and a big thanks to the UK420 team and @teehee @splifi @Professor_X @Slippy One @zeroG @diyleduk @Lamster67 Sometimes for me just talking/writing shit and trying not to be a dick is the best medicine going about! So pop open your can of smingles or get tucked into your Jen&Kerri's here comes the first wave of my diary hope y'all enjoy so dim the lights and roll up a doob for the one time extravaganza the one and only Why"A"Ree! nudge nudge get it, don't be too mean about my bushweed botch up hoping it's more of a Wow"A"Ree than a Why"A"Ree. Enough of me talking gobbledygook. The grow will be of a plant I germed and vegged so far under a 6000K 40w light 600mmx600mm in size. Once my last grow has finished drying I will be moving it into the room with a lumatek attis 200 the whole way through from when I re pot it into a bigger pot from the 3.5 litre pot it is in at the minute, until its flowered and I get our auld danye son to go in and karatekid the fuck out of it. I'll be using the highly recommended clover multi purpose soil straight out of the beg, right! The beg! I have some blood bone and fish meal and also some potash I might or might knock into the soil when potting up. Don't know, think of this grow like the pantomime, feel free to shout in yer 2p, like don't be adding that ya gluebeg! Lucas formula with some other stuff added in. I know it was devised for general hydroponics nutes but I'll be doing it with advanced nutrients because I heard ya can, so spit your tea out, bite your tongue or call me a buffoon that's what we are rolling with. The room size that it will be moved into under the influence of the attis 200 will be 1.2high x 1.1wide x 1.4long. Snugger than a family of unwelcome roosting pigeons under your PVP panels. Thanks again everyone really hyped to have a stab at this comp, took me ages even just getting thisone post up but I really really don't mind I like to pour the contents of my grey matter onto the white matter in the latter half of the day. Right must stop with the rambling her patience is wearing thin and my eyes are on fire looking at this screen for 4 hrs! I'm so not handy with computers and phones, or maybe it's the water fuckits and morettis I've been doing. Thank fuck this saved I thought it wiped, phew here's the plant porn Bye everyone

    From the album Sids Random Shots

    Lumatek Zeus 600 pro. Probably overkill for a 4x4, but I have room for an upgrade now so its future proof for a while. Love this thing. Its an absolute beast. Shout out to @diyleduk for supplying this absolute monster.
  24. Yes now fellow farmers! Hope everyone is well during these unique times going on in the world...So I thought about packing up on doing forum diaries entirely as I seem to have a lot of misfortune on the last 3 grows/diaries from roofs falling down, old bill issues, COVID-19 lockdown (quite draconian in Spain) and so on.. Despite this I am back with a diary for this competition and to stop myself going crazy bored - I am hoping to break this diary curse and get through a grow and diary successfully again like I used too! Bigups to @diyleduk and @Diyleduk Craig for running this competition and a shout out to the guest judge Mr @tokenroll. I will go all out with my usual diary layout and chatting/sharing gardening information (aka potential bollocks) - as it stops me chewing the mrs ear off about horticulture The Genetics & Story The Royal Wedding is pheno hunted and selected by myself - but due to COVID-19 restrictions: I got locked down far away from home with no proof of address resulting in a big fine trying to return home and as a result - lost all my plants (3 tents including mothers), but a mate did a run of the Royal Wedding I got samples of and this was the best out the 6 girls I got in the pack.. It was not grown to full potential by any means, but still really good smoke - so I am very keen to see how they perform for me. Royal Wedding Breeder: Emerald Mountain Legacy Selection: IntheSystem Strain: Wedding Cake x Royal Kush 8 I actually retrieved the cuttings off another friend (5 hour round trip once was allowed to travel). I left the original cuts from my run with him prior to flipping and getting locked down for 2/3 months visiting my gf for the weekend with just a backpack - This friend is not a grower really, so he ended up putting the mother cut outside in MARCH. Very grateful he kept it alive nonetheless! This was when her when I got the cuts: This was the plant (pheno 4) about 2 weeks or so later - it's off my mates phone so sorry about the photo inconsistency here: Equipment So after the lockdown and losing crops I decided fuck it and moved down south with the mrs. I brought a new tent from local grow shop as I only had big 2.4 x 1.2's before. I stood in the tent for light leaks and picked it up for 80 euro on sale and I have to admit, the quality is nearly as good as my expensive Hydrolabs tents! Don't always have to spend more 1m x 1m x 2m Darkbox tent 420w Atreum LED custom made for me by Adam. 220w Highlight Full Spectrum 8 inch RVK silent extractor in a DIY HDF soundproof box 6 inch RVK silent intake GSE Fan speed controller 10 inch Mountain Air filter with 8” reductor Klarstein 16l/day dehumidifier Pure factory humidifier Custom built SCROG net 170l Smart Pot Blumats irrigation system. 4 carrots, 1 long carrot on a 25l reservoir. No-Till Gardening For those that don't know (I see topics pop up often): No-till essentially means the soil is never dug/turned/tilled. It’s living soil made from simple components and relying on the natural cycle of the soil food web thus, recreating what happens in nature. Along with a strong mulch layer to replenish, improve and give back to the soil as time goes on just like how the biggest and healthiest forests and trees in the world do. This is essentially the 2nd cycle in this bed and has a lot of Cannabis mulch beneath the straw and cover crop. Here is the old stalk: Soil Mix 40% Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss 40% Homemade worm castings fed only kelp, neem, skrill and barley 10% U-Gro rehydrated coco coir 10% Biochar (charged via worm castings and an air pump for 24h) Per cubic foot I amend with: 3/4 cup of Kelp Meal 3/4 cup of Neem Cake 3/4 cup of Crab Meal 1 cup of Ground Malted Barley 7 cups of Basalt (rock dust) Cover Crop & Companion Planting Cover crops give a whole host of benefits from improving aeration in the soil via more roots thus more pathways, increased soil life activity with interactions/exchanges of bacteria and fungi and of course when chopped and dropped; give back to the soil. My Leguminous (nitrogen fixers) cover crop is: - Crimson Clover - White Clover - Red Clover - Buckwheat (also draws phosphorus in its leaves making it bio-available when culled). - Alfalfa - Vetch (sparingly, found it attracts a lot of green aphids where I am) - Rye Grass Companion plants this cycle are: - Greek Basil - Mint (need to cull it back haha) - Marigolds (if they re-seed from the last cycle natuarlly) Diversity is the aim of the game here... Hopefully it stresses the point that plants exchange nutrients with each other and live in harmony to thrive - they do not pull or suck from each other. Again, look at the biggest forests in the world with the healthiest trees. This is what we are trying to mimic in a pot ultimately - also why big pots and companion planting help tremendously Outside Inputs - Top dressing of 2-row diastatic malted barley seed ground fresh every time - Kelp/Neem teas every fortnight providing immediate and complete source of nutrition - Mountain Organics Botanicals foliar providing supplemental minerals/hormones/enzymes and IPM (insect pest management). I do drench the bed in it sometimes too, particularly the seed sprout tonic (sst) Predators - Greenhouse Rove Beetles (Fungus Gnats & Thrips) - Swirski (Thrips) - Phytoseiulus persimilis (Red Spidermite) Let's do this! I think that is all the background info and introduction done (finally you say!) - so it’s time to put this into practice! This really is all in the preparation and it quickly becomes permaculture basically topping a 25l reservoir up every couple of days in full flower.. Plain tap water straight out the tap - you can lookup my chloramine opinion in the many topics but essentially it's a non-issue simply as the soil is the filter (microbes take care of the ammonia once the bond to chloramine is broken basically). The cuts were taken off a flowered plant but still shot roots out in around 5 or 6 days using Aloe Vera from my terrace: They were potted up in 3 month old living soil to slow them down as the intention originally was a multi strain grow with OgKushman’s/Source Genetics "Root Brother" off my pal @Sargares, but again due to COVID delaying post and everything in general - the post took way longer so they are a fragile state to run alongside: Once rooted firmly, they were then transplanted into the bed: The girls were watered in with Mountain Organics seed sprout tonic (sst) at around 2ml per 4 litres just to get some fresh minerals, cytokinins, enzymes etc in the soil and I also gave them a heavy foliar/IPM spray on equal parts of: Mountain Organics SST, Citrus Tonic, Neem and Ritha (soapnut) tonics at 2ml per 4 litres. The aim will be to update this diary weekly, it will keep me out of trouble! haha Finally, I would like to Wish the best of luck to everyone else in this competition! I am still learning how to take photos with a DSLR properly, so bare with me on that front... I am getting better slowly. I shoot mostly in Aperture Priority mode using the exposure compensation with standard Nikon D3500 and lens kit on a tripod. Stay safe all and catch you in a week for the 1st update Cheers
  25. Hi all This is my first attempt at using leds and my first diary so its a bit of an experiment for me. I'm using a lumatek Zeus 600 bought from Adam @diyleduk and growing a bubba's gift which was a freebie from my hso order @HSO-Mark. I'm in a 1.2 x 1.2 tent growing hydro with an oxypot xl using shogun nutes. The Bubba's gift was a bit slow in veg but I take some of the blame for that as I was experimenting with the light settings/distances etc. All in all shes had a 5 week veg just using a+b with an ec of 0.8 up to 1.2 and ph from 5.6 to 6.1 then taking it bk down to 5.6. Any advice/tips is appreciated ✌
