Happy Monday everyone!!! Here's a Monday morning bush shot for your viewing pleasure:


We have a couple open box p300's for $300 and p450's for $450 available. They were returned from a customer who decided to go with the p600's instead. They all include the 5 year warranty. Let me know if you are interested!

Cheers, Tom

I have a p900, i am growing autos on a 20-4 schedule. I am starting to show flowers, when should i turn on the flowing light?
I would flip the bloom switch on. Just keep an eye on them for bleaching as I have found the lights to be strong. I turned on both switches at sex last round. This round I have had both switches on from the start because I am doing a perpetual grow.

What's up @hillbillydeville? We recommend running the P450's over the seedlings at about 36-40" just running the VEG switch. You can slowly move it down over the course of a couple weeks to around 24" which should be the sweet spot for VEG. Just keep in mind different strains have different light sensitivities, so just make sure the plants are happy, healthy, and praying towards the light. Move it up if you encounter any forms of light stress.

Happy growing!

Hi @PlatinumLEDTom, I could use your expertise in my veg room. I have two small areas, each 28" x 35" x 45" high (measured from the top of the totes) . I'm currently using a 280 watt FERO Bulldog over each. These are bloom lights and a bit too intense for young plants. In fact, I have to cover them with a piece of door screen to reduce the intensity until the plants have good roots in the water and are showing new growth. I would like to replace them with a better veg light so I've been looking at yours. Depending on the strains (photos), I generally veg to between 18 - 24". That doesn't leave me much head room once the plants get bigger. I doubt I have the head room for a P300, but I've got a couple concerns about using a P150. Given it's core of 3' x 1.5' I'm not sure I'll get enough coverage when the plants get bigger. I'm also concerned that 50 watts may not be enough for 4 plants. Depending how high I can mount your light I may end up with as little as 15" head room for the last week or so of veg. Also, do you think a P150, again running in veg mode, would be enough to maintain 4 mothers? I appreciate your feedback on this.
