Cheers buddy, yeah she has a super tight structure don't think I'm going to get much stretch to be honest but hopefully it fills out the space nicely. Excited to see some buds forming now.. fingers crossed.

Awesome mate, really love what's going on here. Top work with the cab and the plant's coming along beautifully.

 

Can't wait to see how she blooms under the QX-75. Mine hasn't been past 20W yet lol 

 

All the best

Cheers buddy appreciate the kind words :yep: yeah man I can't wait either especially with this new strain never grown a red strain before. Haha I shit myself every time I increase the watts by 5 shits fucking powerful lol I feel I have to though to see how far I can push it in this small space! Time will tell..

lol so tempting with these LEDs, and I guess the only way to know a limit is to cross it. I'd be careful tho if your RH dips below 50% - at the temp you have your plants will be perspiring quite hard so keep an eye for early warning signs if you do crank it. 

 

If you're happy with internodal spacing I'd leave it at 50W for a while, things look sweet :yep:

That's interesting to know thanks dude, my RH quite often goes below 50% which could be the reason for slow growth at certain stages :g: what other signs would I start to see? Im all ears from you led vets I'm a noob at indoor growing and no clue with LEDs lol iv got that typically thinking were more power equal more buds but I know that isn't the case! 2oz of frosty nugs is the goal

@80085 I only delved into LED at the end of last year so certainly not a vet but I can share what I've learned.

 

Essentially, the more you push the light intensity, the more your environment and inputs have to be bang on point. Mg deficiencies are usually the first to appear for me, followed by crisping lower fans with interveinal blow-out. I haven't had any bleaching yet. 

 

Ambient temps need to be higher with LED (mine sits around 28°C) but if the RH is low, the plants are working extra hard bringing more water up from the roots as they are quickly losing it to the air. High PPFD conditions exacerbate the problem. 

 

Less is generally more - I yielded better on my last run with the lights dimmed a little.

Ok mega thanks for the info @SYZYGY makes perfect sense that.. will probably keep it at 50w for a while now then because if I increase and have increased temps then I'm going to get lower humidity. I'm hoping once the buds start forming and I get more foliage there will naturally be higher humidity then so might get away with it. Rh is something I haven't paid much attention to really but will do from now on just hard getting a controlled environment inside a shed lol iv seen your grows man you done some stunners :yep: appreciate the tips!

@80085 You're welcome. RH will naturally rise as you go through bloom, ironically when the plants (and carbon filter) need it the least. 

 

Whoever's got a grow on in the flat above my workplace could do with remembering this! Panicked and thought the smell was something to do with me when I got here this morning lol
