    You know, you're arguing with someone who's really pushing this untested method of creating bubbles, but the dude doesn't have a grow to show, using ANY method!

    This is a prime example of something looking good on paper or in theory, being disastrous in the real world.

    Agreed, which is why I keep pointing out empirical evidence.

    I pointed it out earlier, but I'll try to make my point to @XipXipXoom as clear as possible.

    If this method is so great, why aren't there others on here chiming in with their own experiences? There are some real cutting-edge growers on this site pushing the limits of technology to grow the biggest, most potent buds in the world, in the most efficient way possible. Being a noob, I highly doubt you're introducing technology that's so cutting edge, the pros here haven't even gotten wind of it!

    Got my seeds today from Aurora Winds Botanical today!

    Ordered GSC, Blue Dream, and Grape Ape, and the owner is looking for some GG4 beans for me!

    I've got to give props to this site! Quick feedback on questions, as well as shipping! He's based out of AZ, and his seeds are very reasonably priced! He's got a good collection available, with available strains changing often!

    It's a "Virtual Sun", which is probably some knock-off, but it was inexpensive, solid, and works great! Got it for $59.99 on Amazon.

    thanks.

    how tall do you think a plant could be under it and still have enough light? i'm trying to setup a veg tent 2x2. you think 96 watts is enough? my LED is too big (almost 350 watts in veg mode) which is like 90 watts/sq foot

    After a few inch gap, you'd have around 10" to 12" of usable light ranging from 10k to 24k lumens. I would say that this is probably about perfect for that size of a tent. I've vegged larger than that just with CFLs :p

    As far as how tall? probably up to 14" or so. Best guess :)

    When you grow under it, the girls will probably be more squat than with an HID or led. But that's usually more preferable when growing inside. I'm thinking of getting another one for vegging up to around week-3, in the tent. It would just hang under the reflector hood during that time.

    yeah, i'm trying to set up a kinda perpetual grow. start them in the 2x2 and cycle them into the bloom room when they get big enough.

    any idea how many hours you can get out of the T5 bulbs? and i'm guessing yours has the 4 6500K bulbs right?

    I used to do perpetual grows but instead of using mother's, I would repetitive clone until the time was right to start vegging. Everything depends on when the harvest is to time it right. Takes some of your free time keeping up with everything though lol

    The bulbs are 10,000 hours, which is pretty standard. I don't think they lose lumens over time like HIDs, or at least not nearly as much.

    The bulbs are all 6500k. That was one of the downsides of this order, no mix and match. But they're really cheap. I'm going to replace a couple of mum's light with 3000k's, but my veg T5 will stay all 6500k.

    My indoor plants have tighter buds than the one I grew outside. Seems to have more triches too. Everything is covered and glistening! Wonder if that because of growing via rdwc vs coco.

    I've got some of these big fan leaves left. Should I trim some of these, to get more light to the lower buds, or are they useful during flower? I did a lot of trimming, from around week-4 - week-7, then pretty much stopped. I'm in week-6 right now. Does anyone prune this late in flower, to promote growth and remove shade?

    Lots of triches!!!
    Post002-2048x1589.jpg

    Not bad for a first SCROG. There are a lot of buds right under the net that are getting a lot of light.

    Some close-up bud porn! I'm in week-7, with 2 - 3 more weeks. Triches are clear right now. Headband (sativa) takes up to 10-weeks.

    But there's also an indica-heavy strain of HB as well.

    I'm trying to find the info on the Sativa dominant strain, and the indica dominant strain, but now I can't find it LOL :wall:

    I meant there's also a "sativa dominant strain", which isn't as common as the indica dominant strain. Mine show a lot more sativa characteristics than indica. Earlier in this thread, there are some pics from someone who was growing the indica dominant HB, and there's quite a bit of difference between his and mine.

    But I've been wrong before LOL

    Can you see any amber trichomes yet? Are you down to the final 4 weeks yet?
