    Had to drill a couple 1/8" holes on the ends to put a single rivet to hold the end reflectors, kinda looks like a mini hood lol.

    That torad! How does the light footprint compare to a no-reflector version?

    Where did you get the reflectors?

    They have the reflectors on the HLG site and have tabs with holes that match the QB holes on the long side, just used the center hole for adding them to the ends.

    Haven't fired it up yet to see the footprint.

    You can look up ledgardners youatube page. He has a video where he measures the boards with reflectors and without; in a tent, in open space.

    I've had some bad health issues so I haven't been on here lately but I seem to be on the mend so I'll try to start posting more. I came close to losing the garden because of it so things were looking pretty rough but they are improving.

    We know it's serious when your garden is affected. Hope you're back to 100% soon!

    I was planning on doing a veg comparison between 4000k and 5000k before all this health stuff popped up. And it appears to be a opportune time to do just that just by chance. I have six young plants, 2 Sour Dubb clones, 2 Chaos clones and 2 DarlinsNet from seed. I'll take one of each and put them under 4000k and the other three under 5000k.

    Here we go, I put the larger or more developed plants of each under the 5000k on the right, one Sour Dubb, Chaos and DarlinsNet on each side. I'll take pics of each with a tape measure for a starting point and compare later. Have some panda film and my good bug oasis for a divider.

    Designed what I hope is a pest proof pot. Basically took a #10 hard pot and siliconed in fine sun screen on the drain holes then put a layer of enough Gnat Nix to cover the drain holes, they covered that with another layer of sun screen to keep the soil from migrating into the gnat nix. Then the soil and plant, then I dug a trench around the pot and installed a watering manifold set into a layer of perlite and covered everything with a layer of Gnat Nix. Watered in nematodes and I hope I'm bullet proof now, did something similar with some small pots but without a manifold.

    Day 35 for this Sour Dubb, I was told the Dubb's only draw back is the buds aren't very dense. Buds can't be that fluffy because I have my first branch start to flop today, guess I'll put some stakes and strings in tomorrow. Bumped the feed and did some more foliar sprays. Bringing in a new secret weapon to finish her and it's suppose to ship tomorrow.

    Got a sample of a friends bud tonight, Fuck OG = Gorilla Fuck x BSOG. Loud stuff and only 42 days of flower, that's not a type-o.
