Cheers bud these lights performed well enough in the test run but ya know, they can't throw hands with a proper cob or qb setup. Tight budget so can't complain at about 50 bucks all in :smokeit:

I replaced the e27 splitters with these new ones to hold the bulbs straight vertical instead of at an angle. This has meant I can pop off the bulb covers. There are now six warm white 4000k bulbs and two cool white as the girls start to flower.

They’re still throwing photons and that’s the important bit. Are those at least 20 watt bulbs? Name brand or generic? If they’re name brand 20+ watt bulbs, then each one is throwing between 2500 and 3000 lumens. They might be able to throw hands with a single COB or two...probably not a quantum board, though. I do like the new splitters...much more efficient.

They are generic 20W a piece bulbs, no idea on the lumen count but pretty unpleasant to look into without shades :headbang:

Checked your DWC run by the way, awesome show. It's a joy to behold when DWC is done well, the growth is flatly ridiculous :smoking:

Getting into the second week of flower. Tops are just starting to look like tops.

Amnesia Haze has a serious STINK. She's always been sativa-slow and I overwatered her last week which made her even slower.

AK47 is fast, wide, and always hungry. Two of her eight branches were crowded out and under developed so I sliced them off.

Besides fungus gnats getting at that overwatered pot, it's a happy tent :smokeit:feed has been 4ml/L biogrow and 2ml/L biobloom. Humidity is up above 50% with the extra foliage and some warmer weather. Temps 27-28'c lights on, 23-24'c lights off.

Cheers, all enjoy a fine smoke today. I'm getting comfy here with a jar of strong, sticky Kush from a test run of this space :smoking:

Where are we, starting the third week of flower. Both stretching, AK47 more vigorously. Amnesia haze just isn't hungry and goes slow. I've had to raise her about 8cm to keep things level.

Nutes are now equal 3ml/L grow and 3ml/L bloom, feeding every other day. Temps are getting up to 29'c and humidity is 40 to 50%. Cruising :smokeit:

AK left, Amnesia haze right

Next time if I mainline for 8 mains again I will know to tie the branches down in the early stages to keep them equal. Their tops are not equal at all because I just let them grow after the third topping.

Also, I am having trouble containing the smell. My exhaust fan, carbon filter and ducting are all fine, but the tent has a gap around the zip. I can cover it with duct tape and then no smell gets out, but that will gunk up the zip eventually. The Amnesia haze is such a stinker as well, so the smell fills my apartment. Any ideas for plugging this gap are welcome, cheers :pass:
