    This is why single die LEDs will probably always have an advantage for mass production over COBs.



    Machines can assemble LEDs on a PCB much faster than a cob can be drilled into a heatsink.

    New grow.
    Lower temps (mid-high 20's instead of low 30's)
    Better humidity (60-70% instead of 70-90%)
    Better reflective walls (Diamond foil instead of light light pink).

    hoping to beat my previous attempt of 1.37gpw

    :)

    @goofy81, If you need a garden gnome I'm available. I'd sit quietly in the corner and just watch and learn.

    That stump in the first photo actually used to be a 4 week fat bud !! that's why it's so bulbous and you can see some of the old bud junk around it.
    Its actually unaturally large compared the the non-revegged buds which are 4-5 times smaller.
    Each plant has a 3-4 foot square canopy to keep low plant numbers.

    Define "success".
    Are you getting at least 1 g/w?

    Btw it's not the best light under 400 dollars.

    90% of the growers in this led forum have lights far better than that. No light is the only or best light. That light is five year old technology at that.

    COBs just knock the shit out of HIDs. White and a few red leds only here for 3 years. Mostly white COBs for 1 1/2 years. Bigger and better buds and easier to be around.

    Can i dip a LED light strip in a clear marine epoxy and make it water proof? Would I be better off trying silicon? Curious if anyone has tried this? Sorry I didn't do a search. Worried about the silicon spheres on a the emitters if I went with them. Just fucking around and thinking about building lights for a light dep with low power in 660nm red to keep them in veg at the min. Far red maybe if it works.

    Also sorry I never watched Vitally on youtube yet. I guess I should head there now and see if thats what his lights are before I sound like an idiot. A minute in and I can tell the dudes cool as fuck.

    So unless Im mistaken thats not what he is doing. Is he on here?

    Got my answer about VOCs. So ill be researching and trying to make it work. Cant imagine I need it to thick and maybe can leave the lens alone.
    Sorry for the stream of consciousness.

    My strips have silicone over the diodes making it IP-65 water resistant. It increases the blue in the diodes original spectrum.

    I imagine I would lose the original beam angles if I covered the original silicone? ie. Osram 80 or 120 would become 150+? or would it hold do you think?

    It will change the spectrum of the light to coat it with something.
