How far along are you? I was looking into NFT but heard it wasn't as good for bud, how do you like it? Looks pretty good.

I just picked up a 24 site aerojet, can't wait to get it running. Hey normal does your system feed 24/7 or is it on a timer? My system came with a 1 min on 4 min off fixed cycle timer.

Cool, hey what brand of LED you using? Are you noticing any differences between the LED side and HPS side? I've been thinking of switching, but there still more expensive than HID's atm to cover the same area,and am not sure if its worth the extra investment.

Just got my new tent sent up today, a 4.5x9x7, things massive and barely fits into my room, though i got alot of space now to work with. My aerojet fits perfectly into 1 half of it.. heres a pic..



Obviously not fully assembled yet, just needed to check spacing.

I'm not sure the brand led.  I got it used from a buddy for around $250 think i over paid.  I can tell the 400hps side is doing a little better than the led side. If it were me i wouldn't invest in led unless u make your own pannels.  Also that is a very sweet system i can't wait to see your grow.  What light are u thinkin about using with it?  What brand tent is that i'm lookin for a tent around that size and how much did u pay for it?  I think next grow i wanna do 1/2 the plants and scrog.

I'm going to be using my 1000w Lumatek Ballast&bulb with a silverstar 4XL hood, if you look in my current journal its being used right now with my 18 site dwc table and 5x5x7 tent, just sold the table and tent to my friend who is housing our current grow to help pay for my new setup. I bought a cheaper tent this time around couldn't afford the $400 for a secret jardin 4x8x7, i found a the 4.5x9x7 tent for $249, was skeptical of what the quality was going to be like, but it seems good quality and well worth what they were charging. heres the link to where i got it...tentlink
its listed as a 4x8x7, but actual size is 4.5x9x7. They actually have even cheaper tents of the same size if you check out the site. Free shipping too if you live in Canada.

I got my 4x8 tent for $200 on ebay and its decent quality. Its very similar to the one you posted, maybe even the same. I like it except for the thread seam that broke on the door/zipper and the poles that need to be thicker. Mine are starting to bow but its not really a problem. That 600D cloth is good thickness. I have a smaller tent that was also very inexpensive that doesn't light seal around the zipper and a T5 4x4 fell against it and punched an L tear through the thinner fabric.

That looks like your standard generic light. Sometimes people know how to order them and get a good combo of different colors and know how to order the stuff (putting in a custom bulk order), but its pretty often that people just get what the Chinese want to put into it; two, three, spectrum, whatever diodes, you just never really know. I've yet to see that really kick ass generic Chinese LED growlog.

What I try and tell people is that right now it is best to order from a company based in the U.S who are basically developing a working grow light, as well as keeping tabs on quality. You have to pay more for the light, but they're providing a valuable service. They buy the more expensive parts, the guy has no problem putting them in. But if you expect him to put the best quality, highest priced diodes in a light he's trying to mass produce and no one's really quality checking then your severely mistaken.

And even a lot of companies importing them are still trying to go cheap because they are an expensive investment, there's a few hundred diodes per light at $1-5 each and they go up in price the higher "bin" or quality/efficiency rating. Now try and think of a wholesaler trying to stock every hydro store in the country with an LED... the quality is just going to cost too damn much for them to get the quality parts in a market that is still in its infancy. If the price of diodes goes up $1 each its millions of dollars more they're needing to invest in these lights. Overhead is a bitch, and its harder to sell a $1000 LED sitting next to a $150 HID package. Sure they might work alright but I don't see anything good about lights from hydro stores or similar web-hydro stores.

A few companies out there are making good lights. I'm a fan of the Advanced LED Diamond series (specifically the DS400 for a 2x4 area) from experience using them, but there are a few other companies that look like they're producing good lights, such as GrowBlu, BlackDog, California Light Works, and maybe one or two more. The important thing is that you do some solid research before you buy your LED's. Right now the market is such that it is an investment. LED's are somewhat application specific, so the different brands offer different footprints and penetration vs coverage which determines which is the best method, usually LST/topping where you spread the canopy out, but some lights will support larger single cola plants. READ UP BEFORE YOU BUY! There's lots of hype and bullshit advertisement around LED's, don't buy into it.

LED technology is doubling faster than processors right now, they're coming out with more powerful diodes all the time, its just a matter of time and someone putting them in a grow light.

Here is my current setup, I was a little disappointed because they kinda stretched from lack of lights in the beginning, no fan either, but the bud are still filling out since the start of PK week. This is from day 29 when I added a few more lights. Six plants in 5gal coco coir.


Oh, and your light might not be total garbage, just not the best. I bet it would make a really kick ass veg light or filler for if you wanted to overload some plants with light. It looks like its doing decent.

Tents are great; I recommend them to everyone over a closet conversion. You can control the airflow from one side to the other and vent easier than most home made chambers. I just had a yearly apartment inspection, I have a 4x4 next to a 4x8 and they didn't say shit. I took down the fan and ducting and made sure it was dark and quiet. I've done this twice so far and last time I opened the 4x4 at the top and had a bunch of clothes hanging, showing it as an elaborate wardrobe closet--plants vegging below/behind and all.

Keep your carbon fan on at all times, I had a cop who was investigating a potential ID theft tell me he could smell my plants. And it was true, I could smell the dank a hundred feet away easy. I had a new controller that I was using that only runs the fan for temp/humidity, but not able to do continuous low--something every fan temp/humidity controller needs but none have.
