So quick update with lots of pictures

This is week 4 of flowering: The plants are doing nicely...and the buds are starting to really kick into high gear of calyx production:

120W:


90W


As you can see...the 90W plant has some branches that are beginning to sag under their own weight...so tied it up a little...

feel free to comment...

peace

the specks are slight discolorations, I think they are the combination of heat stress and a little nute burn. I have checked for spider mites and cant find any...but I'll keep an eye out :eek:

they look like they would be smelling very nice!
The only difference between the two different light looks like bud density but the 90watt one still looks very nice!!

is there any other noticeable differences in lights?

What's up with the clawing you have going on in the 120?  Have you checked your PH lately?  Looks like a classic case.. Combined w/ heat stress I would say

Anyways they still look great, and are flowering right a long!  Should be some nice nuggage!  I am 3 weeks behind you :crazy2:

Fuckin hell...

My nice-ass camera is puking its guts all over the deck of the failboat...

I'll try and get my girlfriend's camera in the next week or so...

I've had to tie up several more branches...they are sagging under the weight of the buds...

wow, sounds juicy!

the fuse keeps blowing in mine so im left with a 45 watt led. im using a 2a fuse on it... same that came off... know why it keeps doing it? i should be okay since i only have 2 plants but still its a problem!

I've always wondered how an LED grow would turn out, dang.  Seriously delicious from the hairs to the sugar leaves!

I know that most good LED systems use a current-limiting power supply since a small change in voltage across an essentially bare wire can cause a drastic change in current (LED's dont offer much resistance in a circuit, and therefore cannot limit current flow very well).

Other than this all i can think of is too much stuff hooked up to that circuit, do any fans stop working when the fuse blows? I cant see that causing it, but its all i can think of.

hope this helps,

no fans or nothing stop just half the light, it had to happen when i plugged it in, it flickered and it was blown. i checked em last night and with 45 watts this thing still kicks ass!

Agmotes, have you any experience with HIDs? As in could you give a comparison of the pros and cons of LED? What kind of veg and flowering time are you getting with the LED?

I have no experience with HID, I started growing about 7 months ago...In a closed closet, with no ventilation when the door is closed. This closet is in my bedroom so I have to close the door at night in order to sleep. Because of this lack of adequate ventilation I cannot run HID's due to the heat load in such a small, enclosed space.

This is why i went with LED's. I am currently using a 120W and a 90W LED in this grow area, along with an 80W incline fan and a couple of CFLs for full-spectrum supplement. I can run all of this equipment 24/0 during veg, and even during the summer with the door closed I dont run over 90 degrees.

I feel as though the LED's lack the yield that high wattage HID's can pump out, but seeing as I am running a setup that I would not be able to run in my current situation with HID's...I grow a decent amount of really nice bud, and although I wouldn't recommend LED's for commercial growing (I barely break even on my investments) I would recommend it to someone who feels limited by space and ventilation requirements.

They cost too much money IMO, but a 120W LED will greatly outperform a 120W HPS light, although it may not be on par with a 600W HPS like a lot of LED companies claim.

One other thing about the LED lights...I have used the 90W for two grows now, and I am starting to see a slight fading of the red LED's. I have heard that they dim the fastest, and granted i do run 24/0 veg and 12/12 flower. I also tend to do a lot of LST, and in my current grow my plants were vegging for 3 months while i trained them to max out the floor space without being 10 feet tall. So it seems that with about 7 months of pretty much constant use, the red LED's will begin to fade. Seems to be working just fine though for small plants.

:gethigh:

I'm guessing you can't replace the led bulbs then? And if they do indeed fade it makes the idea of purchasing a HID which you can replace the bulb with more appealing again. I'm running a 400W HPS in my closet. It's running 22/2 at the moment. During winter it actually keeps the grow space a nice temp, although I found during the summer that it did tend to get pretty roasting in there, and my ventilation was pretty shoddy. Still got over an ounce out of a plant dispite the high temp during flowering.

Yea I'm actually gonna quit growing after this grow finishes up around new year's...until i get a better housing situation...I think that if i had the money and ventilation i would just have a room sealed off with a 1000W or a couple 600W or 800W HID...just to get an idea of how they perform.

I will however be using the LED's to grow me some indoor veggies :grin::thumbup:

I do have a question for everybody:

My plants are about 3 weeks away from finished...give or take a week. I have been saving my purple maxx formula for right about now. I also have some gravity supplement to harden up the bud a little. Any suggestions on how to apply these and not burn up my plants?

I was thinking about doing a 3 gallon flush to try and remove excess nutes in the soil, since the purple maxx and the gravity both say it can cause nutrient sensitivity in the plants. I was also going to raise my lights as high as they go once I add the gravity, since I have heard that it makes the plants extremely easy to burn.

I also want to bring the temps down in order to really bring out the color of the bud...any suggestions on when to start bringing the temp down in order to get a little color without stalling out growth before the plants finish?

Any advice is very much appreciated :dancingshroom:

peace,
agmotes165
