In this thread we will examine 2 photographs. One printed in the latest issue of High Times and one taken by me. Let me preface this by stating that I know High Times is distributed to help it's advertisers sell products, and most of these advertisers do not manufacture of sell LED lights. This being said, it is no excuse for them to diseminate false information and other acts of motherfuckery. Here is the photo in contention, which I will disect for thee: The caption and the blurb in the article claim that because most LED light looks purple the plant may develop signs of problems that cannot be so easily seen when compared to HID. This may or may not be true, and if so can be remidied by SHINING WHITE LIGHT ON THE PLANT! Any grower who cares about his plants will check on them many times DAILY. Whom the fuck ever at High Times chose this photo to further disgrace LED lighting. Lets get back to the grower though, and weather or not this was a staged photo: The setting ia a 40-site cloner. Covered in crack-rocks. WTF is going on here?!? Close inspection sure as HEL reveals problematic developments! This idiot has #1 put plants in a contaminated area, and then left plants in the cloner for weeks?!? Did he forget about them, and then when High Times needed a photo said Hey, I have the perfect travesty of LED you can print. Here is my photo: This is a Romulan in a Growlab40 tent at 1 month. It is growing in a recirculating drip-system I designed. 5 gallon bucket, Drip-Cap on a 4" Grodan cube, and a submersible pump. I added an air-stone because the roots are in the water. The light is Sunshine Sysytems GlowPanel45 which is a 28watt 1x1' panel. This is what a properly cared for plant looks like. GREEN. LED lights are GREAT for vegitative growth. The only thing problematic is the plant has outgrown the tent. DARN. LED's for Veg, Hortilux Blue's for flower. That is all.
