    @verticalgrow The smokes great from both strains, the taste of lemon and spice with maybe a hint of pine just sticks to your lips, almost like your eating it lol, it will need a few weeks in the jars curing to be honest, but if it's anything like the last grow using the same strains it will get sweeter and become very smooth. Certainly a more intense flavour than what I had been getting a few grows back when I used the 600w hps. (everything is better).
    Thanks for popping in.

    great grow.since you have run this strain under hps and led,do you think the color is different under led?mine come out much darker and fuller in color.

    @zep_lover yes the buds seem to have a purple hint to them, I also run the last week of flower at about 18c lights on and lights off which enhances the colour and resin even more. Similar to cobs.
    Under hps they never done this, unless the temps got really low. So I would say in all honesty it's the lack of heat that leds produce that do this. I might be wrong but it is my findings.
    Cheers for dropping in more than welcome.

    About $39bucks for 550 watts for 36 days? That is pretty good because electricity costs in europe are usually pretty high especially Germany.

    Some of the nicest flower pics on a QB board I have seen so far.

    @JDMase shoot them a message on here mate, sometimes the website says out of stock even if they are not.
    They are really good when it comes to customer service. My cobs arrived as quick as they would had they been from the UK, or quicker!

    Flipped my Bubbalicious and Aurora Indicia from nirvana after 8 weeks in veg. Using HLG 550 in a 4x4 about 20 inches from canopy. going to lower my light another 4 inches after the stretch. Using a trellis just made squares a little smaller 3". Using 5g smart pots Roots organic soil and feeding FF trio and a little calmag, but cut the Grow big out. have a Roots organic Pk boost use and blackstrap molasses I give on nonfeeding days. I'll use PK after 2 weeks of bloom. Gave 24 hours of darkness before flip. lights on 75 to 79 RH 35 to 50% Aurora then Bubbalicious have a lowrider auto in there but putting in a 3x2 during flower.

    Btw: Shot out to Steve and Robincnn from NGL and HLG Happy with the Light :bigjoint:

    @pop22 just finishing off my new grow cab, just doors to make. 4 Dinafem OG to scrog, should not take long in veg since the grow space is smaller (57" long x 30" wide x 72" high).
    Will post a diary when I'm ready to get going again.
    Same 4 boards as last run but now runs long ways, nice long strip of quantum power. Just hoping my passive venting design in the cab works correctly.
    Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my diary, appreciated.
