What's up AFN.... as the title states I'll be testing an Amare Technologies Solar Eclipse 250. ....... I'll be running it in a 2x2 tent wich is WAY over kill but the only thing I have available atm. The strains are Mephisto "Grape Crinkle" x2 and "3 Bears OG" x2. They will be grown in 3 gallon smart pots filled with Pro-mix BX from Premier Horticulture and fed the Advanced Nutrients line as always.

The beans dropped in a cup of water around lunch today. They will be placed in a wet napkin tom.

Aaaaaaaand to the light. Shipping was fairly quick coming from the other side of the planet since they were sold out here. The light was well packaged and protected.

Once the box was opened I did a little inventory to see what it included. There were the standard metal non adjustable hangers as well as ratchet hangers wich is nice. All other lights I have had did not come with that. There were mounting braces to assemble this with the other modular units as well as 4 secondary focusing lenses. 2 power cord as well 110 and 240.

I flipped the light over and inspected. There was 0 damage and it was clean and Shiney as expected.

And you know I couldn't have this beauty up with out anything Green under it lol... so I pulled my little Evol Seeds "stoopid" female in a pint pot under it to see what happens. Here a pic just as I placed her in there. Well check back in a few days to see how she likes it.

Ok @BigSm0 @Wile e Peyote @Discretepete2676 @stepside and any other Amare users. I would appreciate it if ypu guys participate in this grow as well... my first question is light height in Veg at a young age. I plan on running veg only so at what height do you guys run the lights in this phase?

I have to say that is a brilliant White when only the veg swith is on but hey.... I'm no plant so week see how they like it.

Day 1 for test... Sept 25

I was told by Victor to use only the surrounding LED's- not the cob - at 24" until they are about 6" tall then add the other light too...seemed to work really well for my first grow so far.

You want me to just add mine in here with you or start my own? I have mine now in the Mephisto area but you can move it if you want... This is my first run with them and so far they girls love the light.
