You have your shit dialed in bro. I don't have the patience to fill a screen, it seems like it takes too much veg time. What are those plants that are hanging? Are they complete plants or branches from a plant? If those are whole plants, is your screen even doing anything? Wouldn't you get the same results without the screen? If your buds smell as good as they look you must be sold on LED's huh? I'm kinda amazed by your grow. congrats.

Those are chunks of plants. I only had 6 plants in that 4x8

Scrogging is a pain. RDWC grows plants so quickly and i dont have an area set aside for mothers so by the time my flower is cleared the plants have been begging for 6 weeks. Got no choice but to scrog.

Got a mom space set aside so will be doing 3 week veg from rooted clones moving forward.

Thanks for the kind words. Ill be even more dialed in soon. Getting CO2.

These buds stank for sure. Been drying at 60F 60% lately and it makes all the difference. Also been using a finish nutrient recipe.

Scrogging is a pita...lol.
Im going to switch to led one day, are they up to the hype? Can you light a room @35w/sf and get equivalent hps yield?
Theres a user on overgrow who does 2000w of LED over like a 12x6 and gets 8# harvests

I have been running LED for 3 years now and would recommend. Sold my HLG light for $350 that I paid $570 for 3 years ago so they hold their value.

I couldnt give a 3 year old HPS setup away. Not to mention I would have gone through 3 HPS bulbs at $80 per.

I was approached a couple years ago to build a small commercial grow. I was looking into led but the budget wasnt there.

Whats the build time per fixture?
You get in a groove. Im OCD so I dont even wanna get into it lol.

Was about 20 minutes to cover the solder on connections with liquid electrical tape. About 2.5 hours to wire.

About 4 hours to tap, drill and rivet. Shouldnt have taken that long but I get rivet troubles. In hindsight I should have just used longer rivets. I used 1/8" shorts and a bunch popped out.

Could probably cut down to 5 hours a fixture. My first one was about 7-8hrs.

But i cleaned up as I went.

Spent about $100 on the frame. $60 aluminum shapes. $7 box of rivets. $20 rivet gun. $5 stainless eye bolts and nuts. $5 bag of stainlesews screws.

Used 6 4ft 1"x1"x1/16" L and 2 4ft 1/2" x 3/8" x 1/8" channels

I got 3 8 foot L for $12 per and the channels were $12 each 4footer

Heres the finished product

Also that monster plant with a 4x4 canopy is called Blue OG. Had to rip down Moby Dick as it was crowding this one and id rather spread this one out

Not sure if you're still around these days but in case you see this compliments on the beautiful garden and light you put together! I'm a fellow jack's 3-2-1 user and I've been searching allover for any discussion about the 7-15-30 finish formula. This thread is the only one I could find. Your flowers look fantastic! I'm planning to run the 7-15-30 for the last 2 weeks of my flower cycle with a 3 day flush before the chop. Just ordered a 25# bag yesterday. Did you feel the finish formula made any appreciable difference in the end result? I'm super excited to run it :) Keep up the good work man. Your garden looks fantastic!

Thanks homie...I liked it so much id get a 25# bag. I got the 2# bag I think. Whatever their smallest bag is. I feel it makes the product smell and taste better. Tough to tell because I also changed the way I dry as well. But I think it does help.
