DIY Cloning/Sexing lamp!

  1. Basically this is two quarters of a qb288v2 (3000k) that I mounted on some leftover angle beams, and one qb3 FR strip in the middle. The FR is to help with sexing clones and for when I do mini solo cup seed runs. The main board is running on a meanwell APC-25-500 (25W 500mA) hopefully that will be soft enough for cloning with.

    It aint pretty and I know its a bit crooked, not OCD enough to drill new holes to fix it :bolt:

  3. Why would you need to sex clones?

    FR help with rooting? I have some FR pucks that I am not sure what to do with since I’m not flowering with that setup anymore. Wondering if there is a way to use them in veg?
  4. I grow regular (non feminized) plants so sexing clones allows me to find out the sex of a plant, which I keep a s mother and only flower clones from.
    The FR is just for sexing clones and for flowering seed runs (I do a mini seed run in my cloning chamber with clones in nursery pots).
    I don’t use it for veg.
