  12. God damn it felt amazing to RIP that 1000w hps out and remove all the hurricane fans I needed to cool it. Ahhh such a good feeling. Well worth the $!

    4 zips per plant is my goal now for this run

  13. Here's a plant around the size of yours that gave 4 ounces you can check it out for a reference.
    It's going to come down to genetics I believe. Your plants look healthy and you got the light intensity so that leaves genetics.
    Also on the light I recommend getting a lux meter to set your light levels. These lights are very intense and can easily damage a plant.
    Congratulations and good luck.
    I usually doubt my grows around this stage also. lol

    ya i can believe it. These lights are fuckin insanely bright. I was looking at it the light when I first assembled it and plugged it in for the first time on accident and it literally blinded me and burned the led pattern into my eyeballs for a good 3 minutes lol. I have the light 33 inches above canopy. Kingbrite says for 0.8 - 1.0 meters. So I'm within that range.

    Man that plant looks super fat though!!! Lol I hope I can get there. I just hope the temps stay under 79.. if I have to rewire and extend the driver outside the tent I will.

    My genetics are
    Blueberry, jack herrer, and girlscout crack

  15. Anyone wanna chime in in the 2 middle girls looking light colored ? Hungry? Genetics?
  16. Here's some good news about your temps I run my grow at 81° ambient air temperature to achieve a Leaf surface temperature of 75° which is thought to be the optimal temperature for the plant itself . I know guys running 84°-86° ambient with these leds.
    Here's an article that explains in depth


    This paper demonstrates that plants grown under an optimized spectrum as provided by LED grow lights may require warmer ambient air temperatures than identical plants grown under other lighting to achieve their full potential.

  17. Zoom in on my temp gauge 20190521_062135.jpg
  18. Good to know. The light has been on for 5 hours and its hovering around 81-82 degrees, at roughly 31 inches away from the canopy.

    But I also have the driver mounted to the light so I think once I put that externally it will reduce temps 1 or 2 degrees. But honestly the leds are hotter than the driver. So not sure if it will even help enough to make it worth the effort of putting the driver outside the tent.
  19. Do you rotate your plant's positions?? Could have something to do with the fact that THEY are the "center" of the light......might be getting "the most" light....................affecting them like that........just a thought
