    The whole truth is that Heath Robinson's grows got me started on vertical gardening!

    When I set up my room (after a 25 year hiatus), I almost took the reflectors off and went vert, I decided to hold off until I had a few good grows. Then I started to read some of your posts and figureing out surface area covered by light one night and ended up switching the whole flower room all around in mid grow. My next big change is going to be CMH. Thanks!

    Skip the CMH and just go straight to LED. Even if you do it in stages.

    I believe that LED's should work fine in a vert grow, but I don't think any one makes panel for vert yet. I have not seen any thing, I have a ida how it would work thought.

    I don't have to believe, I've proven it.

    TTy,
    I have only used the CLW SS400 in a convention horizonal grow, pentration was lacking. I did do a 6 plants sort of SOG, flowered two week old clones in 4 gallon Hempy buckets. That was a better grow.
    The heat sink, I think that is what it is called that DesertHydro posted,
    headed in the right direction [​IMG] .

    Looks like that would be a good starting point.
    Since I know very little about LED mechanics, and especially COB's, if I a correct the individual diodes are affixed to the heat sink. My LED lights are 5W x 80 lights, and it has is fan driven cooling.
    Do you have a website with a simple tutorial on constructing an LED fixture. Would be interesting,
    Just want to learn a bit about them.

    Well once bitten twice shy with anything og in my soup. I've been pouring it in over the top at full concentrate. can't really say I'm seeing any results positive or negative at this point.. still paranoid about it. think I'll run it in a separate system instead of half assing it.

    Try using a mix of RO with your tapwater. Most of what it removes is calcium, which buffers pH up.
