  1. Evening all! I'm struggling to find any information on what is a safe distance for a seedling under led lighting. I’m currently running 60w at 18”, temp 24c, 68 humidity, with a nice breeze. Does this sound ok? Or should I raise/lower or increase/decrease wattage? Thanks

  6. Welcome to the Humboldt Seed Organisation fast flowering express terminal... Toot toot! It's a simple idea, isnt nuts, crazy, stupid or indeed a grow gamble as with some of my other ideas and infact I think others may actually try it, honestly they might I have popped the seeds,written the introduction and the express will depart this week. "Tickets please" said the fat controller
  7. So here we go again, this is indoor grow number 6...ish? The seeds... (All Autos) 1 x Fantasmo express (freebie left over from last grow) 2 x Frosty Geleto (freebies left over from last grow) 1 x RQS Royal Jack 1 x RQS Royal Creamatic Only really got room for 4, so we will see what pops and take it from there. Same set up as before but i have now bought a thermostat for the heat mat. (set at 21c) 240w Dimmable quantum board LED 2 speed extraction Heat Mat and thermostat Canna terra pro soil mix Fabric air pots Biobizz root juice, fish mix and Cal mag. 21st February Seeds did 12 hrs in water then put into home made toilet roll seed trays, then put straight into the final pots. Soil temps are a steady 20 - 21c thanks to the thermostat, the last few grows i had been using a timer with the heat mat so this takes the guess work out, much easier! Drobe temps around 22c (using the light for heat) only using extraction twice a day for 15mins to retain the heat as its still damn cold in me shed! Humidity around 60%

    Very squat Blues raised in the centre. Only 8 this side due to late discovery of a Lotus Larry male.
  9. Diy led lights (F series strips) T his is a diy thread, for the diy guys, to diy a diy led grow light..Its the cheapest way to get a decent led light. Im not going to get too deep here. This is a basic guide with parts list with product codes to google, rather than a how to build it.. “what wattage do I need for my space” Strips. The Samsung f series strip. This features 144 Lm561C S6 bin leds. Driving them at the currents listed in the parts lists will achieve 2.2-2.35 ish µMol/j at system level. Warning! Don’t be fooled by the cheaper boards/strips.Genuine strips have the Samsung logo and are fully CE compliant. Heres the parts numbers for the strips.Google will give you the supplier. 3000K SI-B8V521560WW 3500K SI-B8U521560WW 4000K SI-B8T521560WW 3000k and 3500k will do veg and flower for weed, just buy whatever’s in stock. 4000k might be useful for mums or lettuce, micro greens etc Strips cost £28 each or you can get a discount on ten+ (including vat which they will add at the checkout) Drivers are easy to find, again just google the part number in the lists. TME is the best place to get them. Ill put rough prices so you know whats the right price to pay. heatsinks you want U channel aluminium. 1 3/4” wide 1” high and 590mm long. This is a very common size and easy to get. Framework you want 1/2” by 1” Unequal aluminium angle(Or whatever you can get. staiir nosing work great). For the length you need it a little smaller than your tent. So 60cm tent get 40cm angle. 1.2m tent get 1m angle. Just get it as big as possible.If your tent is 1.2m or bigger build it in two lights. Max spread is the game here. More points/angles of light over the area = “penetration”. The metal work you can buy cut to order online, or a local shop will do you it cheaper. Heat sinks cost around £4-5 each and framework is a couple quid. All the wiring/wagos/bolts ect be found easy on shitbay/scamazon. Or any local electrics shop. Make sure you get solid core wire. And your power cable is a 10amp one. Are you still here? Heres a chart, I think it makes sense Heres a list just in-case it doesn't. Prices are the max you want to pay really, you should get it a bit less if you get the metal cheap. . 150w. Total cost - 130ish l 2x F series strips. l 1x HLG-120H-48A driver (£40 max) l 2x heatsinks l 2x unequal angle. l 2m 18awg or 20awg solid core wire. l 2x 3 way wago connector. l Old kettle lead for the plug. l 3 core cable connector. l 20mm thermal tape roll l Bolts/nuts/rivets (whatever you want to use) 210w. Total cost - 170ish l 3x F series strips. l 1x HLG-185H-48A driver (£45 max) l 3x heatsinks l 2x unequal angle. l 3m 18awg or 20awg solid core wire. l 2x 5 way wago connector. l Old kettle lead for the plug. l 3 core cable connector. l 20mm thermal tape roll. l Bolts/nuts/rivets (whatever you want to use) 265w.

Total cost 340 ish l 210w kit parts x2. 530w Total cost 440 ish l 265w kits parts x2. 700w Total cost 520 ish l 350w kit parts x2. The build its self is self explanatory really. Mount the strips last so you don’t damage them. Get the tape lined up right before sticking it as it WILL NOT come off once on. Wiring is the only tricky bit. Its a parallel wired system. All negatives from the strips go the the negative on the driver and all positives from the strips go to the positive on the driver. Here a quick paint wiring diagram, to show how to do it. I don’t mind helping out, if you have a question, just post it on the thread. It is a low voltage system (47V) but still be careful, take time stripping wires right, cable tie them to the frame. If you can see any exposed core you have fucked it, try again. DISCLAIMER- key accepts no responsibility for damage caused to persons, or property. This is not electrical advise, just a parts guide. Don’t pm me asking where to get stuff , post questions in this thread. PMs will be ignored. @mods Any issues with this please let me know.

  11. Here it is, happy 2020 you all . In this new decade, I decided to give autos another shot. Having been happy with the results in 2018 outdoor, mediocre results in 2019 outdoors, I have been invited to test Auto Bean Stalk's MOBstar auto. To be clear, I am not an experienced indoor grower and have ran into problems before (mainly Cal Mag issues). I'll do my best to achieve a reasonable quantity of dried weed but given the small size of the setup I am not expecting any miracles. All your advice and comments are welcome (good and bad is always good in my book) so I can do this bean justice as much as possible. If you see anything I can do to improve please share your knowledge and experience. I have previously tested MOBstar photo regs in 2018 outdoors in the south west UK and was very impressed with both phenos showing (green and purple). Great smells, very frosty and bullet proof mould tolerance (it was a good year admittedly) very nice smoke too for me . For the first time, I will grow an auto in my micro cupboard which I normally use to start beans and keep clones for reversing and making small batches of experimental beans. I will also pop a few beans outdoors end of April for a harvest mid July to see how they perform in the great British outdoors. Genetics: 80 days finish time green pheno used ofr the auto version Set up: 250W blurple LED Home made airpot holding around 3 to 4 litters - I know, ideally I would have a 15L pot but hey, can't do it here. Medium: Jack's magic (mostly peat moss with added sea weed and fertiliser for 6 weeks), garden compost, perlite (60%, 30%, 10% respectively). I blasted the lot in the microwave to avoid having damping off and I added a handful of dried crushed local brown seaweed and some Mycormax beneficial fungi and bacteria to recolonise the soil with the good stuff. I will likely top the soil up with some of my worm castings at some point. The soil was kept indoors for 1 week prior to popping the seed. I used the paper towel method. On the 1st of January 2020 MOBStar auto popped it's little head. So this is day 1 I'll try and report back every week to show progress. Thanks for stopping by.

    Not as good as the white Secret Garden net on the left. Partly due to size, the white one is 1.5m x 1.5m and the black one is 1.2m x 1.2m.
