Now that is awesome LST stuff right there! So you first let it grow for a while, then topped it and then started LST? Do you continue to bend while it is in flowering for first couple of weeks? I think I will set my net little lower and try out some kinky bondage early on after I first install the Orca grow panels.

Good photos! I can actually learn a thing or two watching them.

Yes, i let it grow till i see 4 new nodes - these will be my main branches :)
Kinky bondage rules :D I did not found any method of LST more comfortable than primitive tank lid, hooks and some pipe - cleaners :D And it looks clean too :)

TaNg, HS1 is still my base light, it is just pefect for that :) Simply i have a passion for things like DIY and decided to dissasemble HS1, put it's LED matrix on huge radiator for much better cooling and add some other Lumileds. This is what my light setup looks now and omg do my plant likes these Lumileds :D
I understand. that GN warranty is far gone, but this is not important, their great product together with my DIY addon will surey give me lots of nice plants :) And i am such a man, which can't use stardand things, i must make these better, or break it totaly diy_on.jpg hs1_on.jpg all_leds.jpg led__.jpg led_.jpg :D

Takes some guts and confidence to dissamble 500e device just like that! But that is so typical for true techies. They always rip everything to pieces just to figure out how things work and how to improve for your personal situation. I can respect that!

Just remember SAFETY FIRST!!

Bro, i'm playing with electrical equipment for more than 25 years already, this is nothing, just some pieces of metal and components which i did not manufactured myself anyway :) What about GN HS1 components - it's casing simply did not fit in my box with my addon, but it's components are top quality and this is why it is pricey. Superb quality driver, copper base LED matrix with carbon plated cooling, quality assembly and total unique optics - GN did great work with introducing of their diffusers - it alone is worth a big part of unit's price. Not regreting of buying at all and it alone is capable to give enough light to one plant and i was using it alone till plant grew a bit, to not scare a plant :) I did not copied HS1, bought completely different spectrums, just to have very wide range, even skyblue and orange LEDs are there. I believe in theory that it's quantity and richness, not few wavelengts. That is why HPS still rules in big grows :)
Ever thought about regulating plant height by adding too much light? Well. this is the case :D I'm testing this theory right now, but results will be clear minimum in 10 days.
Anyway, i'm thinking about diary here on AFN, maybe it will be interesting for someone :) It is not good to do so much input into thread which is not connected by mean.
