T5/CFL only thread (the manual)

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

50 grams from that little plant...Now that's impressive. My grow shop gut said I would not get the dense buds with T5's. You sure proved him wrong.

Hey all looks like ill be back in the garden sooner than later, recieving clones this week from a friend. I will be using only a 4ft 4 bulb t5 light for 3 plants. The clones were taken just 2 days ago hoping they will be ready for transplant tomorrow. Think this will be enough to veg these ladies for 3 weeks and finish them to the fullest? They are all pato #1 any input would be great. Thanks in advance

CGR,
Both to some degree.
There are now VHO bulbs as well @110w, but require VHO fixtures.
Is the fixture you require need to be 2'x4'? If so Sunleave pioneer 8 might suit your needs.
I know the newer ones are 25.5" where as the older models are @24" exact.
Either the sunleaves or hydrofarm 8 lamp fixtures are nice, and have good reflectors.
Hope this helps.
