She was a yielder, easy to grow, really a 5 by 5 kind of girl, I miss her.
Haze’ll do that,
One more shot I dug up, of those same colas. They were both roughly as long as my arm, I'm 6' 3". She would put out 4-6 like that per plant with a month veg or slightly less, in coco dtw.
Forgot to say, easy to trim.
I have to stay small, so usually about 4 plants in flower at a time.
I dropped two PCK x Bubba and two PCK x Sour Grapes today, hoping to find at least one female, clone it out and run a handful of them after the current run is done.
How many watts of light?
600W HPS, over 120cm square. No real temp control, literally venting out into the room. Ghetto, lol.
Running some marginally cheap-ass LEDs now. Hope to get quantum boards rolling this year.
Nice work man
Thanks brother, I haven't had a decent harvest in about a year, hoping to get the fuckin' show on the road again!
Im hoping for some loud goodness when i get these popped
Im all about the crystals and the terps
Quantity is always nice but its never my priority
But it is always nice haha
I love my quantum boards. Great for keeping temps low. They are producing some nice rock hard buds
How much lower are the temps compared to hps
Cauae i thought with led you needed "grow hot"
Since my ability to vent heat is limited, at least until we move, it would probably be perfect for my situation. Based on the micromoles per joule they throw out it should be around 45% cooler which would probably mean canopy temps just shy of 80f for my current setup, with about 35% more photons!
I use 100w/sqft cree cxb 3950s. With lights out my temps are 68f. Lights on temps are 78, with just air circulation, no venting.
Glad to hear there is some skunk funk in them there genes!
Never used HPS, but canopy temps only went up a few degrees. You can actually mount your driver outside your room or tent, and heat output would be super low... my canopy temps usually run right at 80, so I guess I grow “hot”. But my room runs about 74 with lights off (lower on chilly nights) so there’s not too much fluctuation
Trying to decide between cobs and strips for an led build
Basically what i was wondering was if the heat saved from the lights was made up for by having to run the room @80
which i thought terpenes degraded at those temps and higher?
I have been impressed by led
Just havent tried myself yet
You don't have to run the room at any tempureature. My temps almost touch the 80s cause I dont vent. If I vented my air the room would be in the 60s and all my plants would be purple.
I use a controller
Keeps my room 72 in the morning to 76 ish at night
Night temps dont go below 66
Environment is big imo but thats just me
But i know the led guys have to run warmer due to less transpiration
But i always heard your terps and crystals break down at temps over 80 something.
So i keep it cool. Plus the cold smoke always tasted better then the hot summer runs
All just oppinons
You can lower the temperature + light in the last two weeks of flower to maximize resin. I don't really care cause I grow resin heavy strains. In florida I had to use an ac, even with leds. I kept the tempureature at 75 degrees
I have a buddy who spent a mint on custom recirculating liquid cooled COB’s and it was too cool. The theory behind it (lower operating temp = higher efficiency) was solid, but the effect on the plants’ growth, due to low ambient temperature was detrimental overall. Many of you know of whom I speak, he basically bankrolled HLG, too. (And is currently getting fucked from every direction)
