  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

    MedCzech’s ManCave-BioTabs & “The Flavor Chase”

    @stoney 91 & @MedCzech I don't doubt your experience and have yet to grow some Mephisto of Fastbuds. I have a choice between Samsquanch, Purple Nuggets and some very pure indica freeby seeds. I will return once I've grown some small plants :cool1:

    MedCzech’s ManCave-BioTabs & “The Flavor Chase”

    No worries mate. I must confess that this was one of the worst journals I kept... probably because I want really feeling this grow. It got better towards the end though. I'm on day 1 of the next grow (7 BB and 1 BBK in 8.5L autopots) which I'll post soon. But yeah, the CC smells divine. I only...

    MedCzech’s ManCave-BioTabs & “The Flavor Chase”

    Aaaah @davisgirl you're making me blush :rolleyes1: I completely f*cked up my scrog on that grow, and my pH was all over the place because I didn't flush and set the pH of my coco coir beforehand. I'm actually a bit disappointed in the harvest because I have a lot more fluff than my Brooklyn...

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    Yes they worked extremely well. On my last grow I harvested 2.2 grams per watt. Check it out here. I built a makeshift cooltube around the lights as well. Works pretty good. The 1212 cobs are relatively cheap, so I'm very happy.

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    Thanks for the tip! I actually replaced the Mars Hydro Reflector 96 and 2 GN1 LEDs with my 2 new COB LEDs. I have them set to 125W each. I have a plan for making a cool tube for each light from some 150mm ducting, as the temp in my room swings between 29 and 33°C.

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    Hi everyone, I ended up making 2 entirely new COB lights with 4 COBs each. I've set them to 150W each because @ 200W they produced quite a bit of heat. Here are some pictures.

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    I've unpacked my COBs and I must say they look pretty cool. Can't wait to get building when the heatsinks and drivers get here.

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    Thanks for the tip. I just bought some circular heatsinks (ModuLED Mega 13450-B-HBG).

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    I received my 6 COBs + BJB holders today but haven't opened the package yet. I've decided to make 2 completely new lights and just placed an order for 2 drivers and 6 heatsinks (www.elpro.org). It hurts now :sad: but the pain should go away when I bask in the light of my new COB lights...

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    Hmmmm. Sounds dissapointing. I'm either going to buy a new aluminium plate or reuse the one from the light. A new plate would be less work. I might buy bigger heatsinks to mount on the aluminium plate though. Depends on the cost and if it's required. Could I buy a 1400A driver and reduce it to...

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    You mention running 4 cobs? My initial plan was to run 6 cobs @ 650mA (app. 22W per cob @ 33.5V) in the Mars with active cooling from the fans. The noise of the fans isn't really an issue, but I might replace them anyway because new fans are cheap and quieter. The other option I am...

    Mars Reflector 96 COB conversion

    Hi everyone, I've decided to convert a Mars Reflector 96 to use COB LEDs. I've opened up the light to check what type of drivers it uses (see the pictures). I decided to connect 2 x 36V COBs in series per driver putting out 0.65A. I bought the items below on Ebay and they should arrive...

    3 young girls waiting! First grow at all journal

    She's looking good bro. I harvested mine when the top fan leaves were dying and I fed plain water for a week. If I remember correctly my trichromes didn't amber up and stayed cloudy. My largest plant was still producing white pistils when I chopped her. I would say you're ready to give her...

    Cool bro. I might just check it out. I've been eyeing a few of those mephisto strains for a while but can't choose.
