Have just set up again after a 5 year hiatus and have successfully germ’d 3 out of 4 seeds that I’ve had in the fridge since 2011. If my addled memory serves me right they will either be AK-47, White Widow or Cheese. They’re currently under a Mars Hydro 300 (150w) until my Mars TS1000 turns up. Growing in a Bud Box grow tent (10
Years old!) A few things need dialling in but just wanted to get them going!

Nice getting them to sprout still, but honestly a ts1000 isnt gonna cut it for 3 plants its only 150 watts even combined with the blurple u have there. Not even close

Well..Still Welcome back to the Growing Community..

I can imagine you are anxious as I was after a 20 year Hiatus and going to indoor/hydro..I was even more anxious..

So welcome to the BEST Site and Info Forum on the Net...Trust me..Before I came here I researched and googled questions and answers

Guess What site had the 93% of not only questions and answers...? yeah..RIU

Have Fun...Ignore the Assholes (though very informative, they come across abrasive so have thick skin)...We have plenty to go around..lol

ts1000 will do 3 plants.. Idk what these guys are saying. Your true wattage between those two lights are the exact same if memory serves. Can you put both in the space?
 
Nice Project!
They seem to germ forever if stored in the fridge.

Would run a 315w cmh in that tent. Would give great yields and thc Production.

Dont letya fool by led.
You will get out, what you put in.
If you use 1000W MH HPS or CMH, you can make 1g/W, if your System is dialed in, with some Training. Same with a 1000W de.
But if somebody tells ya, all you need just his 200W cheapo led board to grow 2 Pound of Primo Bud, Kick his ass. Because he rips you off.
You need a small cool but powerful lamp for that tent. At the Moment cmh is a good one to go for, realy. Use this myself.

If it just needs to be led for you, Cob LED are good. You pay 1,5$/10W a piece At eBay. DIY is easy with this Barbies, just use passive cooling and rows of 50W Chips.

Peace, keep up the good work

Thanks for the comments lads, & yeah I used to use a T5 Fluro for veg and a 400w HPS for flower in my tent but I don’t own them anymore so I have only got this bloody blurple until I upgrade. If you search YouTube for my user name on here you’ll see some of the yields I got from that little set up...Tbh this is a bit of an experiment grow.. have since decided on a 2000w Mars Hydro or similar spec Spider Farmer light for flowering.

haha yes I’ve learnt from being on here years ago to not take contructive criticism to heart! Who’d of thought stoners and growers could be so opinionated!

So this was how my last two vegged under the same light a few years ago sadly these never made it to flower as I was dating a total bitch so they had to go! The leaves were a lovely healthy dark green and I couldn’t wait to start flowering them under the 400W HPS (no longer have) So for a couple of plants this little blurple light performed very well for veg at least.. just need a LED equivalent to roughly 400W HPS power output.

I disagree with the can't grow 3 plants under that light. I'm growing 5 plants under 2 viparspectra LEDs old blurple reflector 300w and p series 600. Not ideal I know but does the job well. And also in my opinion the blurple grows better plants with more trichomes than the new type, well out of these two lights anyway. This was my plants week 9 under the lights

I'm using biobizz light mix soil and biobizz grow/bloom topmax and calmag. I did a grow before with just the one blurple on 3 plants only 130 ish Watts at the wall and they came out great my profile pic is from that grow. Im not saying better lights wouldn't be better but I'm growing nice buds so it works great I wonder if this watts and par etc is all a gimmick for marketing purposes to an extent.
