  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

    Mr.Sparkle's Ikea Cabinet "186g, 99watts, 2.25sqft, in 66 days from sprout"

    That would be correct but thinking about coming back the start of my next round, but yeah just so many sub forums here you people kinda get lost in there own echo chamber, and id rather have discussions and community, mind you saying that im not actively pushing to do that myself here on afn...

    Off the Shelf Screw in LED Bulbs as a Viable Alternative

    Yeah thats alot of the custom made, horticultural focused stuff now they are including the near/far reds in a lot of arrays just to shift the amount of available light in that side of the spectrum, reason being is light on that side is more efficient plant uptake wise vs say blue light, thats...

    @Dudeski Far/near red augmentation yeah worth a try i honestly cant say how much efficiency gain may be had if running watt to watt with or without red augmentation, but simplicity wise i would want them to be same voltages and current as the bridgelux's or i'll be having to running a second...

    @WalterW So its been awhile since i started this thread, and and me hanging around these forums "too many sub categories" but actually and i'll post this here so other can see. Check out the Bridgelux EB series Gen 2 Strips coupled to the new Meanwell XLG drivers. Cost is cheap even when...

    COBShop.net Summer giveaway

    Seeings how @mcpd_refugee mentioned that this is now open to international people "Canada" guess i can enter ;) Here are a couple pics of some recently finished Dark Devil f2's i ran in my little cabinet under 100w of 18/6 light , ended up yielding 186g over 66days. Top bud of one of the...

    Haven't been around here much, lurk occasionally, but have moved over to another forum. But to those here on AFN just want to share some Auto love. This was last run that ended a bit over a week ago. The setup is a Ikea Besta cabinet, lights are 3 solstrip x2's in a 3500k color temp, exhaust...

    Mr.Sparkle’s Arduino Controlled 5 Gal Bucket Micro Grow 2017

    It is just haven't been posting on here or as of late "as i may be over on another forum" but i haven't had too much on the go as i stopped and did some changes and only now really have some plants starting to go. If i start posting here again i'll start up a new thread, but the micro section...

    depends on how far along they are but if in say the last week or two no not really.

    @Ozone69 those are made using those cheap ebay 25-50-100w chips and a lot of them are not grounded properly. Big Clive on youtube i believe has a video about them, also they are inherently bad as far as the chips goes. Sure you can use them but id be surprised if you got more than a couple...

    Off the Shelf Screw in LED Bulbs as a Viable Alternative

    @Chunder @alfa88 First don't confuse plant elongation with leaf growth, as any plant that has a light source that is far away will grow towards it to try and gain more light. I'll also presume there were a few other issues as well, maybe underwatering, high of heat levels to cause the stunted...

    Off the Shelf Screw in LED Bulbs as a Viable Alternative

    The point to consider is light that is on or nearer the red side of the spectrum "2700k-4000k" is more efficient for our plants to use compare to the blue side of the spectrum "5000k-6500k". Our plants actually downgrade the wavelength/energy of bluer light to a point that is easier to process...

    2017 PC Micro Grows with Mr. Sparkle

    Well up and running again, new changes includes a different watering system that comes straight up from the reservoir which reduces the amount of tubign significantly and should run more even, also added in a drain tube for the tray so any excess water will drain back to the res. Currently just...
