    I shortened my drip rings slightly & enlargened the holes to 7/64 in. They don't plug as much but I've found that you've gotta match the strain to the waterfarm & when you flip & the amount of stretch you get after the flip is a key factor I'm running jack herer- x-blackberry it's as near as I can tell a sativa dominant hybrid & so far giving my best waterfarm performance to date I'm putting it in a 3x3 tent today & soon I'll fire up my single homemade waterfarm also going in a 3x3 tent with a calif light works ss275 which is a 200w light all my stuff is here I've just got to get it all hooked up its summer in the calif gold country & its hot

    I drilled out my holes as well, its defo strain dependent i think if you have a mother and grew cutings by the 3rd time you cud max ur yeild for your light space but theres alot of variables

    Things are looking up, my gf has reluctantly agreed to finish this grow for me however im guna have to show her everything n im not sure how its guna work out but hopefully itll be ok n nicely cured by the time i get back haha fingers crossed.

    Lifted the lights, the buds under the cobs were starting to look a little bleached. Its awkward because the panel needs to be closer, i will ditch the panel next grow n maybe get 2 more cobs....

    Hey dude I've been enjoying your grow and I'm just curious as to how far your lights are from the tops? Also how tall is your cab or tent?

    Edit: also how was the tapping? That's always kept me away from building cobs

    I always leave it around1 foot abouve the camopy of thw highest point, i think start at 1 foot amd adjust to the what the plant likes if you zoom in on the cola on the left right under the cob you can see the tip is just startingto get bleached, this is really only because it is directly under it but never the less i raised the light up a few more inches and wait and see if it gets better, with leds you want to get it as close to the plant as possible leds juat don't have the output of hids.

    Tapping was a bit if a mess to be honest i ruined one heatsink becuase my drill was broken and drilling oval holes! But if you take your time its easy. I am an engineer by trade so i have done it before ans still messed it up ha.

    If i could get a well suited driver i think 3 72v cobs in my space wud be perfect. But i may even get another pair of cobs and have 4 in there that wud be more than enuf light!
