Using LED horizontally

  1. Another benefit of LED disovered- it's easy to reposition.

    Due to a variety of learning curve errors with aeroponics- controlling fog, heat, and pH, I only have 2 survivors. Both are same seed stock: one is 21" the other only 7", but a healthy, fat 7".

    No way I could get decent light to the short one (without sacraficing light to the top of 21), which impeded its' growth, and bud development. I made a makeshift riser so I could get it closer, but then it lost out on the timed spraybar, bubbler, and fog.

    This morning I had a brain-fart :confused: and experimented moving the LED horizontal to the plants. Because LED bulbs run cool, and not motion sensitive as filiments in MH/HPS are, I was able to unhook it from above the canopy and hold it so that the light was horizontal.

    My Ureka moment :eek: was seeing light flooding the many developing buds all along the 21s main stalk. SCROG without the hassle :D
