    Hey all. Sorry it's been a while. Just been so busy with the kids etc etc.

    Anyway here's an update. Girls in the vert tent underway again and my last horizontal grow I think 4 weeks into flower.

    Bit gutted as ill have to shut it all down this year for a few months. Go some work needed on the house. But one good this is that I will hopefully end up with more space so hopefully I can ditch the tents.

    Looking healthy! I hope you can ditch the tents, that sounds so nice. Also hoping you don't have to wait too long in between, I know how that feels. I get sad without my girls around.

    Yeah I'm thinking it could be 3 months. So not to bad. Just sucks having to pull it all down and then set it all up again.

    I was wanting to take the family on a trip overseas, so maybe this will give me the time to do it, as I wasn't sure if my 5 gal buckets would last 7 days without being topped up, or they would have fuck all nutes / water after a week, well a fully flower plant. The small ones in veg would be fine.

    Vertical growing is best done with a vertical socket and no reflector at all. I used open rated lamps, it's essential to make sure you run only open rated lamps under such circumstances.

    No reflector means better efficiency. More canopy space means better yield potential. I strongly recommend higher efficiency LED lights instead of HID for best results.

    Another kiwi here. Chur bros! I'm looking at switching to hps for the coming winter to help with heat. I'm running led cobs (easygrow haha) at the moment and they seem awesome for summer but come frosty time I think I'll need to change it up. This vert stuff looks the business. Impressed.

    Why not just insulate your grow space a bit? Problem solved!

    I would like to bring it inside the house from out in the shed eventually but need the kids to leave home before that's an option. I've been slowly "procuring" empty polystyrene boxes from work with the thought of building a shell around my tent. It gets damn cold out there in winter. I have an oil heater in there on a thermostat but it's 2000w so if I'm burning that much juice I figured it may as well be putting out some light. Still new to this and trying to figure things out.

    Hey man! Good to see us breaking the norm eh. I have a 6 cob and 4 cob led from easy grow, I grew "double black" with the 4 led, buds fattened up and I was stoked! But once I harvested the buds were not dense at all!! So I don't trust using those cobs for flowering. Has anyone else had similar experience?

    If I were you I would run the lights at night to compensate the temp drop.

    Only prob with that is I get fucking paranoid with the choppers and flir haha, it may be me just being too stoned

    Here's my scrog, I'm really needing 1lb+. Any guesses to yield potential? Haha
