    Just a quick pic I forgot to upload weeks ago this shows how well the development of the pistils and trichomes can be so early on using these lights.

    Day 36 12/12

    Temps Lights Out: 22c
    Temps Lights On: 24c

    Lights @ 550 watts
    light running costs up to this date is £25.89

    Water from tap: EC0.2 temp 20c
    Plants fed: Ionic Hydro Bloom @ EC 1.5
    RH: 45%

    So today is Day 36 of 12/12.

    This week has been plain sailing, they have had their feed increased to EC1.5 along with some cal-mag as they seem to be needing a little more than what they would have been getting under hps, feeding 10 litres every 3 days with about 2 litres of run off.
    A little bit more defoliation at net level to so some more fresh air can be pulled up through the canopy, with that done they will be left alone till harvest I think.
    The buds are just starting to show signs of swelling up, a lot of the first batch of pistils have changed colour and shrinking some what but being replaced with nice fresh ones.
    Trichome production is increasing at a fantastic rate as you can see from some of the close up images, typical when using cobs so it's nice to see the quantums doing better, than both cobs or hps.

    Will leave it at that, enjoy the images below.

    Cheers for popping in.

    @215Kush about 30 inches m8. Gives plenty of light spread across the scrog. Any lower and at 550w the spread is not as even, also I started to see leaves with signs of light stress.

    It's working good at that distance for you! I have 3 plants one is an auto. I have mine at like 28 inches from the canopy, I may need to raise it back to 30-32 inches the plants grew a couple inches in the last week. Don't want to fry them. It seems like they're thriving at that distance just waiting on a trellis to come any day now.

    Just a couple of bud shots this week, nothing has changed in the room. Will do a full update in another 7 days to show progress.

    Day 45 12/12 little canopy shot.

    Nice dense colas Dinafem Critical+2.0 are anywhere from 6-10inches long. Less than normal, due to unexpected lack of stretch during first 3 weeks 12/12.
    Simple answer to that for me is reduce power and raise the lights.
    Dinafem Amnesia Kush colas again are dense and range from 6-12inches long.

    NOTE FOR MYSELF AT A LATER DATE.
    Day 45 12/12


    Dinafem Amnesia Kush Trichomes at 40% cloudy, a few amber not many, buds swelling up nice. I think these may be ready early. Dinafem flowering guide is 60-70 Days.
    Dinafem Critical +2.0 Trichomes around 25% cloudy, buds are only now starting to swell. These seem to be at least a week behind. Dinafem flowering Guide 45-50 Days.
    As I always say they are ready when they are ready.

    Shot this one at 20mm couldn't fit all the scrog in, at 10mm they look like dots lol.

    @pop22 next run is looking like a sog grow, got about 20 cuts from my Dinafem OG Kush mother plant. Bubbling away as we speak if they all root they can veg for a week in 2 litre pots of coco, looking for 2ft tall single colas and we will see where it all leads to.
    I'm Enjoying these Quantum Boards.

    @ChefKimbo yeah bloody mad it is. I have grown both these strains on and of for along time now. The 600w HPS never ever produced the resin that's showing under the Quantums. I have also run the same strains under Cree 3070 cobs they stacked on the resin also but less than the Quantums.

    The future is crystal clear for all to see.

    Real nice grow man.

    Im going perpetual SOG for awhile, these QBs a perfect for my vertically challenged grow area. Looking to do about 15 3ft plants for SOG when i find a good strain/cut.

    Day 48 12/12

    Temps Lights Out: 22c
    Temps Lights On: 24c

    Lights @ 550 watts
    Water from tap: EC0.2 temp 20c
    Plants fed: Ionic Hydro Bloom Critical+2.0 @ EC 1.2 / Dinafem Amnesia Kush @ EC1.4
    RH: 45%

    So today is Day 48 of 12/12. Everything is moving along at a steady pace.
    I have reduce the nutrients for the Critical+2.0 to EC1.2, I will feed it at this strength till Friday the 14th and then they will be on plain ph'd water till harvest.
    The Amnesia Kush is a little more demanding on the feeding, she is getting an EC of 1.4, she has a few more weeks before nutrient levels need to be reduce as she is a longer flowering strain.
    That's it for now will post a little update Monday week.

    Love the diary, also from the UK here. Was considering two cmh's, but seeing this I might have to go quantum. Where'd you pick them up from here?

    Dudes, you can just buy Samsung inFlux linear strips. They're widely available. You just get the highest power ones they sell, the kind of short ones, about 20 inches as I recall. If you wait for Quantums to be in stock you'll die of old age first.
