Hi. Noob here. Appreciate all of the help, I’ve gotten through half of this forum.
I am still confused about where to top. I’ve seen all the diagrams, so I thought I should top right above the fourth node, counting from the dirt, but in one of these threads, I read that the first set of leaves after the cotlydons doesn’t count as a node. Can someone enlighten me? First grow, have a OG Kush, Bubblegum, and Jack Herer, all autos, in a Mars 2x2. Day nine. I know that is too many plants for the tent. Didn’t expect them all to germ. Might top at node 3 to keep em smaller footprint.

If u look on page 4 of this thread.it shows clearly how to top a plant for best results. The node u top at depends how many branches u have to play with later. every grower here is showing u solid advice ur in the right place thats for sure.keep up the good work growers.some awsome plants.keep it mean and green.happy growing every1;)

Those old viparspectra leds are still bossing it to this day with the blue spectrum. I’ve seen amazing and huge autos vegged under them. Was actually thinking of buying one from eBay the other day, despite their being better led chips such as Samsung nowadays. On that note, I think I’m gonna go buy it on eBay loll

The vipers 1 did cave in on me a few month back.viper tried fobbing me off. Lights were under warranty.mentioned who i was and i had alot of followers.then they did agree to fix it.did my last grow.so lets see if they last this grow. The veg spec these lights give off is really special and easily over looked. Its something iv discoverd since buying and using the vipers.i cannot find any other led panel anywere!!! that give off just the white and blue spec in veg.the blue is a game changer.major plant growth .awsome plant structure and node spacing.quite amazing.as u say they grow monster plants.indeed they do with very little power;)if these lights fail il always buy these vipers again just for the blue and white spectrum.i will not be happy if they stop making these lights lol.and for the price.there unbeatable;) i do use a migro 100w cob also in the middle of my viper panels.so the vipers can not take all the credit. But they grow me insane big plants everytime.the perfect veg lights in my experience so far in growing;) i would say buy them to any grower.ul be suprised thats for sure. Any questions just ask.happy growing every1;)

Yes brother, indeed. I contacted them for their p2000 because any plants I’ve seen grown under their p series, seem to grow the same kinda bud structures. Of course strains vary but any I’ve seen have similarities. Nice dense chunky buds. But, they refused my purchase because I’m in the UK also. They said they cannot provide warranty because the light has to be shipped abroad to Be fixed. I am very interested in building my own light soon. That way I can make the spectrum exactly how I want it, including plenty of blue for veg
