    Im sure that will work just fine, However I prefer an always on dehue/hue controlled by a room controller. Mod the dehumidifier to drain into the humidifier or res. that is easy and you never need to worry about dumping it. Ill be moving up to a very efficient grow atmosfeer Putting the buckets on tables just high enough to allow for having the res underneath. Total cost for the overhaul including lights and AC thats currently nonexistent.... $10,000. Kinda pumped as well. But thats another thread for another day. :) Im not worried about cost next go round.

    Plants are cut down, and if you follow me Via IG you can see the carnage. Pics will follow.. but its bed time... Also The OG Kush Pheno on the COB side is a keeper all day. Will have that around for a while.

    I have some bud shots and I still have to jar everything up to get a final weight. But it's looking good so far!

    Great videos & job on this. Big props!
    Real impressed w/ the 4k results. I noticed wicked frost under my 4ks too & big colas.
    Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see the new room you build. Nice work!

    hi Killer,
    Does the COBs smoke better then HPS?
    Are u going to put results on utube for side by side?
    HPS looked good for awhile but then COBs took over which is the same as Spektum kings side by side.

    Still trimming when I can, I have some weights but Ill wait to post them till I have everything all together. I do have some lessons learned to share after this grow and a few other things that I think will help people. I did a hanging Cure for a long time to Ill have cured weight. Till then life goes on.

    I have all the weights and everything measure out. I'll be making a video shortly to talk about this grow as a whole, what I learned, what I need to change, and a few other tidbits. Might be a longer video but it will be scripted well.

    I'm waiting till I have footage of the room remodel to add narration since I didn't get the trimming footage, camera died lol. I see no reason to rush it IMO a better video is always the better option

    Thanks man, it wasn't a good yeild, but that's life without AC. It's an all encompassing video it will be worth it and show the future plans while going through them. Currently in the process of starting a new job, college, and normal life stuff.

    How can it not be a good yield when using cobs guarantees even a dirty floor grower like yourself an easy 2g / w :lol:

    My guess is that The HPS outperformed The LEDs This time... maybe the decades of breeding under HPS-spectrum have caused MJ to utilize, for plants, abnormally high amounts of the orange spectrum? My guess is that leds would outperform hps if light was less abundant than in this grow op.. that the suboptimal spectrum of HPS would show it's inferiority if the total amounts of photons blasted wasn't MEGA-huge..

    Yeah, HPS does deliver.. The heat and humidity that comes along with it can be a bitch though.. just as the stretch.. depending on your grow situation..

    Maybe an hps with extra 440 or - few added 6000 k cobs, to counter the Stretch, would kick even more ass..?
