    So here we go,

    I start my second ever grow and im now about 3 weeks into flower and going strong. This is my first time on the forums so play nice :)

    So im running a 2.4m x 2.4m gorilla grow tent with the height extension in so its 2.4m High.

    Pots Medium and strain: so im running 4x5 30L pots filled with pot socks with straight canna coco and a bit of white rhino in the pots when they where transplanted just to get the good bacteria doing their thing from the get go. Now as for strain im running Lemon Venom but its a crazy pheno that i found from my cuttings from the mother. For you that don't know Lemon Venom is meant to be a heavy indica that is nice and short... as you will see mine is far from that.

    Lighting: In the tent I'm running 4 gavita pro 600w E series lights and i have just added in 2x 900W spider COB LED lights for a bit of cross spectrum and just to see what these bad boys can do.

    Watering and food: im running the full rapid nutrient solutions feeding program plus i started them off on Biodiesel just to top it up, ATM i think they have just hit their peak of watering and im down to about every 3 days and about 7L each. I also have a bluelab monitor that monitors my EC and Ph wireless from anywhere in th world (i thought it was cool) At the moment I'm mixing my food just in a 60L res and pumping into my tent and hand-watering them and they drain into a run to waste system with a catchment on each side that i drop the pump in and empty when needed.

    Environment: Because of my current location and our weather has just only started to cool down im having to run a portable A/C to keep my temps down but i keep the A/C ducted into the roof and run a passive intake and exhaust is run by a 250mm isomax with carbon filter which as well as that lights is running though an SMSCOMM Hybrid controller that will shut off lights if it gets to hot and always keep a negative pressure in my tent and keeps my girls safe.


    So i have LOTS of photos 90% of them are in my instagram so i wont post to many backdated pictures ill trickle a few though over the journal or by request :)

    So now i have ended my little rant i hope you all stick around ask questions point me in the right direction and hopefully i can help you and you can do the same, im here to learn and help others do the same not to brag so don't be scared to hit me :)

    OH P.S im using a method 7 camera Lens and glasses for the photos that's why half are still all yellow i only just got it haha

    So here is few more photos a bit more recent :) took them last night :)

    As you can see in the first photo no matter how much i bend snapped and tied them down they just want to grow in the walkway.. good problem to have lol.

    Second photo is the new LED that im using, so its a 9 pod COB LED that punch out around 900 a fixture (ill have all the proper stats soon and ill be measuring the light with a par/UMOL meter in the next few weeks)

    and last one explains itself haha, got the new fixture in. don't ask how. wasn't easy over a canopy with no room -_- but shes in and the other side will go in tonight so ill post up a few photos of the girls and their new toy :)

    Yeah dude, i never would but the fact that it can run 80 lights that right there is an impressive feature being as it has morning and night time dimming is pretty impressive and the auto-dim and shutoff is a massive saver so im going to have to add it by minimum by my next grow :)

    Yeah that auto dimming feature would be enough reason to use one, I like the way the standard dimming function has the fine adjustment, a lot better than the usual adjustments on regular digital ballasts

    Hey guys,

    So here is my latest photos and a small update.

    So since putting the new LEDs in i have had problems with heat and the little air-con just not keeping up (I've been avoiding cutting a 250mm size hole in the roof) until now it was fine with it just venting into the room and the air-con could cool that but now that's just not happening so tonight ill be jumping in the roof and cutting out a new hole -__-

    But other than that they are loving life as you will see in the photos, and we are coming up on 4th week of flower (8th of this month) but here you go and keep and eye out on my signature im about to start my next journal for my little pheno hunt im starting have some killer genetics ill be using to try and find some dope phenos and then mother and clone for my flower room :)

    Looking awesome boss!! I hope you can get the heat sorted. At least it's starting to get cooler now anyway. Winter is the best time to go beast mode on lights :)
