could you explain the last one. is that the same as VPD chart?

and when you say full spectrum, you add UV and IR? i only add UV.
No VPD

Find a heat index calc online and adjust for 4 points above ambient

IR is not needed, I did several experiments with ir and never saw a benefit

will do. thanks.

with my low humidity at high elevation, VPD is almost impossible for me to achieve without spending a ton on climate devices. i've gotten by for 10 years with what i've got so why bother was my thought.

i don't use it and haven't seen anybody that adds it to quantum boards (yet). i think the general consensus is that to run your room hotter to make up for it. but is that really the best solution? not sure.
Nor am I , it is interesting though.
Yes warming up room helps but what if you didn't have to, what if you could sit with your plants in a room 72 F with them getting the IR not you ,sure would make indoor gardening a lot more comfortable as I get hot easy lol
I might try it later this year once it cool off won't cost a lot to try on one plant.

how were you thinking of adding it? one of those infra red bulbs they put in bathroom vents to heat up the area? and i guess there are IR leds too, i think some of those mars and vipars have IR

Probably semiLED's IR led chips and build my own strip-light whatever it would be called LOL

awesome! how about the specs on the whole fixture por favor?
9 strips of 3 k LMC561c with 6 strips of added supplement, 6 supplemental diodes on each strip. Diodes consist of 390-400, 410-420, 465-485, 620-630, 650-670, 720-740 and 840-870 nm. Sammy's are powered with a HLG 240H 24B, supplements are powered by 2 APC 35-700 so each driver powers 18 supplements, 36 supplemental total.

cool, very nice work! i'm trying to remember what light you had before but the brain cell isnt' working. was it you that had an Apache at some point?
and i'm guessing this new light is better than your previous?

I know roots because I have literally planted, raised, and harvested tens of thousands of annuals and perennials for 45 years. I have been experimenting and perfecting root control and development to the nth degree using root tip pruning systems. Here's one such journal that was posted to the old and infamous Overgrow.com forum -

June RootBuilder expansion of a large blood orange tree. Notice no spin-out and large scaffold roots growing into the native soil at the bottom. This is how you support mother nature:

i just found it cool that i had printed this stuff out and found it recently cleaning up stuff.

Uncle Ben you were one of the dudes that always had some useful info to share back then on OG. i was stoned cold bulldog hanging out with the Mole and Captain Skunk and many others of the crew growing moles Uranium Cranium. i sure hope i check your profile and you are still around. thanks for all the love showed brother. like i always say fuck them if they can't take a joke and fukc them even more if they can't handle the truth. My nasty habit of truth telling has also upset folks on and off line but most respect it.

I DIDN'T EVEN DEAL WITH THIS SITE OR KNOW ABOUT IT FOR YEARS. i use it mainly to lurk for good information and do strain research. I've already had a taste of the asshats that so often post dribble so i just leave them alone.

last seen here in 2016 too bad for this site imho. i'll check to see if your at the new version of planet ganja since i'm still a member there.

@RM3 Hello RM, I was reading through this thread and wasn't sure if it had been mentioned, but wanted to ask you - in your opinion, how much does the effect of the smoke increase with using higher K lights, like 6500K or 10,000K?

I'm growing equatorial landrace sativas, and I've heard it said that the effect is better when using higher kelvin lights.

(I'm growing for pure effect, I don't mind smaller yields, less bag appeal, etc - looking to buy a pair of Kingbrite 6500K LEDs (highest K they offer) and just wanted to ask your opinion).
