  1. hello, i have some questions about my light if any of you
    can answer them please do so ASAP! thanks!

    ok my light uses the new FLUOREX technology, it shoots out
    the same blue spectrum as a MH growlight, its wattage output is 500W but it only uses 65W and operates at low heat, its LUMENS that it puts out are 8,255, is this enough? will this grow my plants? thanks and please get back to me ASAP

  2. What light you use depends on you're grow should try to aim for approx 2500lumens per square're light is enough to cover approx 3 1/2 square feet.....hope that helps you.....Peace out...Sid
  3. thanks for taking the time to reply brother, but does that mean im good to grow? :D
  4. Yeah...just make the box a bit smaller....and it does mean you'll have to flower the plants in the same box for the amount of light you have....if you had twice that amount of light, you'd be able to veg in one box and flower in the other......all it means is that chances are you'll smoke or sell you're product faster than you can grow it...there will be a period in between when you will have no smoke and be waiting for the next batch....that's the way i have to do it....but i don't sell it the buds last me till my next grow is ready.....Peace out....Sid
  5. you rock man :D i cant wait for my little baby sprouts to begin so i can start the cycle ;) remind me when my first crop comes in to send you samples, be cool man and thanks for the help

  6. You're welcome, just be carefull with the young sprouts, use just some fluros till they're a little bit bigger before using the hps.....Peace out...Sid
  7. hey sid, i just wanna let you know that when we talked you gave me some hope that my seeds would start, the dirt that i was planting all those hybrid and special seeds was almost toxic lol i lost alot of good seeds, but now i have 2 sprouts from some good hybrid strands, im lettin them mature a little under the fluorecants, then puttin them under my light but i do want to ask YOU sid, if i add these 2 fluorecants to my light fixture will it help or hurt? thanks sid

  8. Do you mean after they've sprouted and spent a few days under the fluros....if you add the fluros will it hurt the plant???....if so then the answer is no, the extra light will help'd need a lot of light to damage you're plants....probably more than you or me could out....Sid
