Hahaha! The last picture I zoomed in for the multiple adjustment knobs! Then I realized it was just the washer... I need to smoke a bowl.
You aren't the only one! I was pretty impressed initially, but couldn't figure out what most of the dials were for. Only briefly mind you. :biggrin:

Decided im going to run UV With my next grow. Shouldn't be too long before I have this up and running. From what I've found through research, I'm going to run a single T5 24 watt UV light in between my bars on the X2. I will start it roughly half way through veg cycle and all the way through flower. Run it an hour a day at about 18 inches from the canopy. Any tips or first hand knowledge of running UV would be great if anyone wants to chime in.

At risk of being flamed for not researching first... What response is the UV light supposed to bring into the grow?

UV has been proven to increase potency, in both thc and cbd, increase terpenes, and also increase tricome production.

1) How is this light working out for you? Considering getting one for myself to flower a 2x4 tent and wanted some feedback.
2) I saw on YouTube that Chilled now has a "drop in" modular UV bar you can add to this, it's designed to literally rest on the frame in between the two PCB strips and provide that extra spectrum for a window of time you decide. Pretty cool, can't find anything on their website but the trailer is here:

The light is working great thus far. I'm working on a run of clones at the moment. I'll be posting some updates once they are rooted.
