Well he did that too, but later he began to make some improvements.

I have a Mars 1600 believe it or not- I've lent it to my buddy for his personal grow at his house.
Well tell him he has about 14 months before it pukes on em haha.
Is there any threads here on realstyles redoing a mars this big?

Strain is masterkush, from cuts,veg unknown lol,prolly 10weeks ;)

Quick mock up on the 72v 3590 i grabbed from @robincnn and some aluminum rails i just started cutting up.mama said knock it off for tonight but i will be cutting that long piece to meet up with outside edges x2 to hold both drivers.couple eye bolts courtesy of robin and it should be simple as ramalamadingdong :)
Thinking i should grab some more of these 72v chips,big sale if'n ya didnt know :o

Oh my :)

The structure of that last plant is just gorgeous. How many times did you top her? My guess is 3-4 times.

these were 8 days apart with the hps plant being behind,but she is now ready to go at about 30% amber.i think some of that may be due to me feeding her to hard trying to keep pace with the cob plant.the cob plant is actually a few days later than normal but i was gone for 5 days so im sure i coulda pulled her right at 8 weeks like i always do.
probably gunna stick 2 gg4 in there next,one under this setup and one under the same setup but i will be using 2700k cobs with just a few 3000k mixed in on the center bar i think. im also thinking about hanging 2 x t5 uv bulbs on each side just to see what happens.should be interesting.

lokkiing good

how many w of hps compared to the cobs and what is your impression of which is doing best..you alsomay haveoother impressions..?
Thanks guys,oms the cob setup is 3 bars of 5x 3590 @1050ma so around 530 to 540w ish and the other plant is parked under a gavita 750 set @700w but its in a spot where its getting overlap from other gavitas and also some 600mh so in theory its getting way more light than the cob plant.my thoughts are that i really like what i see from just 540w of cob and i prob could have put 2 plants under those 3 bars or trained this one to be wider.
The cob buds are just super nice and rock hard. The hps plant is by no means my best work but at the worst she is better than average lol.i think the cob plant may outweigh the hps plant based on bud density. Hopefully the smoke is where it needs to be.before this i ran a chem soda cookies from jaws under the same bars and my people went gaga over the stuff.so the mk should be equally awesome :)
Def got alot more builds in the works over here if and when i get some time,or rain days.

If you get anything like the same results I've consistently gotten under COB LED, those smaller tighter buds will surprise you with their weight, impress you with their frost- and get you higher than you ever expected!

Man, that's it, you & a few others here have got me wanting to build a light. Nice job on the update!
Did you buy pre-fab or build from scratch?
Great job either way!
You also got me wanting to give that 3rd month to my veg.
Doing great bro., keep it coming. This forum needs big plants w/ great results to lock in the cob working factor IMO. And you're doing just that here.:clap:
