• 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!)

I just turned them down from a combined 525W to around 465W. I was seeing some pretty bad leaf curl from two of the plants. Indica doms struggles with my heat.

They can go up to 1100++ watts driven to max though.
Have you used it max on any sativas?

The way i got it set up, its not meant to be driven to max. Some would consider two boards overkill in my grow space but I use 3×800 boards for a total of 2400 diodes. I then threw in another 50++ watts of high efficiency reds.

I don't see myself exceeding 600w white lights for the entire grow. But thats the flexibility of them. I can technically double my grow space without buying an extra light.

I know you have been putting out some killer looking ladies. Looks super bright in pics.

I'll have to invest in a couple just to see what I like. But the mixture of lights and spectrums are doing wonders for me.

Just a newbie with some good beginners luck really. My grows are nothing compared to yours, buddy!

I'm liking them lights so far. Expectations met.
Thanks but I think you got me beat on the consistent level bushes! Maybe after this run I'll just do one at a time so I can enjoy it more. I messed up and let some family know and was giving them some, then I found out there spouses also smoke. So long story short I got about 10 heads and tired of growing all the time. So I'm going all in once and stopping so I can enjoy a vacation without worrying if my girls will be okay.

Its never ending once you go down that road. I started with white cobs. Then mixed in a blurple cob and liked what I saw. Then got myself QBs. But I liked 4000K for veg so bought more boards in 3000K to use for flower. Then, I discovered the lack of reds on these white LEDs so I added them. Also with the hope of achieving Emerson effect. Not cheap at all lol

Then, I read about spectrums not covered by LEDs namely the UVs and blues, that may increase terps, resin and most importantly, potency! So....I added them too. Sometimes i wonder if i should just work on my growing skills rather than spending all this money on toys?

No telling what I'll find lacking again come next round. Its really never ending....lol

Don't really believe i beat anyone in any aspect of growing here on afn. This is only my third grow. The bushes are nothing. Like you said, just needs maintenance. Anyone with time can do it.

I am in 6 battles/ grow offs this round. So i also will be growing 100% for myself next round. Zero obligations. Just grow....

Ohh...besides testing 2 strains for Dinafem that is! But its just a journal. No battling involved.

Both your grows look great!

I just ordered a 240W QB 3500K with the 660, a splurge I should not have taken but as you say, always something to get and it never ends!
It should be here Wednesday and I can't wait to put it together and set it up in my tent that needs it. Wish I could order many more but it will take time.
