    @BobCajun thanks for the link, same one as I found. Have you or anyone on here build a panel up to test yet. They would provide another option for my veg box.

    Nice thread dude. Cant believe I have somehow missed it this long.
    Looking damn healthy! Cant wait to see how they finish.
    Seriously considering some QBs for the other half of my tent.
    Any idea what your light weighs? I got a bit carried away with the oversized heat sinks on my Clu058 build. Could do with going light weight for the other half.

    I'm just using the slate 2 heatsinks they hold 2 x qb boards. Not sure on actual weight but light enough for a gentle breeze to blow them about lol.

    I Think it would suit my remaining space well, only 3x4 feet to cover, the cob side covers slightly more than 4x4. Fans ect take away about a foot on that side.
    What did you pay from HLG after VAT and delivery?

    Dinafem: Amnesia Kush Cola 13 inches length still a lot more packing out to come.

    No idea how these photos look on a computer monitor as I'm lazy and just using the tv to sort them out.

    Day 56 12/12

    Ok folks it's getting close to end of this diary.

    The Dinafem Critical +2.0 is now being fed Ph adjusted water with a background and total ec of 0.3. They have had some defoliation of fan leaves that are past their sell by date.
    The buds are starting to fall over on top of each other, they are not massive (6-10inches) and would not expect them to be in a single plant scrog but they are as I expected them to be Trichome covered Rocks with a really strong smell of sweet strong lemon and pine fragrance.

    The Dinafem Amnesia Kush is now on a feed of Hesi Bloom for a few days and will then start getting some light feed of grow nutes at EC0.5 for another couple days. Monday the 24th they will be getting plain ph'd water till chop.

    So harvest is going to be in two parts as both strains have different time periods for harvesting.

    You can see from the canopy shots that I switched to 12/12 to early, the stretch was only a few inches which I was not expecting, I reckon if it had filled right to the edges front and back there would be a few extra ounces to harvest. Live and learn.

    I will leave you with some shots till next time. Hope you all had a good Easter.

    Note this is a scrog not just a support for flowers that a lot of people would call a scrog.

    Looking fantastic but if you're flushing adjusting the PH of your water is counter productive.

    Final score will be less that what many would like, dialling in your grow room and learning the plants behaviour under different lights takes some adjustments.
    No doubt in my mind about these lights in any way.
