    Ok folks, first time posting a grow journal here on rollitup.

    Big thanks to the good people on RIU for helping me along the way, and a special thanks to Robin at Northern Grow Lights, a real pleasure to deal with, quality service.

    My setup is in a 1.2x1.2 tent, lights being used are Quantum Boards only.
    They are the 2 X 250 watt kits wired in series. (waiting for another kit to be in stock)

    Plants being grown are Dinafem Critical+2.0 and Dinafem Amnesia Kush.
    They are in 20litre Hempy buckets with a mix of 60% perlite and 40% canna coco pro, with clay pebbles in the bottom and clay pebbles on top so I don't disturb the growing medium to much when watering.
    The plants have been trained to grow wide from the start for scrog, under a couple of 3070cobs.
    At present they are currently weaving their way through a 1x1meter scrog net, and just starting their 2nd week of 12/12 with the Quantum Boards.
    The Quantum Boards have just been turned up to 400 watts and are floating about 30 inches above the canopy.
    Temps inside the tent with lights on 24-25c, Lights of from 20-24c.
    They are being fed Ionic Hydro Grow, Canna Mono Trace Mix.
    EC is 1.1

    I am not on here to preach the usual led bollocks and wild claims on yields etc.
    I have grown for a good while under burples, hid, and cobs, time will tell me how well they work, so long as I don't screw it up.

    If your interested feel free to pull up a seat.

    I will upload pictures in the morning and will update my diary every Monday

    I'm running the lights at night and to be honest the plants are not happy at 24c, they love 26c but to hell if I'm adding a heater. They can learn to cope lol.

    Cooler seems to be better for trichomes and potency. Interesting lights, I was thinking of going COB, but these have got me thinking.
