Seems to be. I just opened the plants up a bit and spread them out so I now have all three going.

I added the third light before flower on the last grow. Ended up with exactly 1000g of bud from the seven ladies. Four different strains. Some produced more than others.

 

Would probably do better with better lights but I'm happy with this. For now that is LOL!

 

In the future I wanna' set up a separate smaller tent for veg and get better lights for the bigger flower tent. The last thing I need though is a light addiction! 🤣

Be careful I’m in the edge of having this problem 

tell myself every day 

your good grow with what you have 

(sitting in a circle looking at my grow buddy’s saying my name is Dave and I have a light addiction) LMAO

ill save a chair for you Bro

well... does it?

If you are running them at lower current it didn't at the time.   If you were running them at higher current then the extra cost did pay you back.

this video helped me understand leds and deficiencies a little bit better

he says in paraphrase "light quality does not affect cannabinoids" and that weird reason why you have to feed/water more under leds, along with 50 million other gems

im not paid , nor do i work for apogee , he spends 2 % hawking instruments and 98 doing real relevant stuff to us led growers on the bleeding edge 

++ UV + IR

The light got here last night

think I’ll finish the run with my black dog 700

then hang the new HLG 650R and see how it does

the only thing I’m not liking now is no UVB 
going to add a fluorescent uvb tube for the last couple weeks

I see some of these grow rooms and lights and thinking I’m in the high rollers club.  Some big money around here.  
 

That HLG 650r does look nice but my other half would find a new couch more essential.  How you guys hide this stuff LOL.

Same way as all the seed purchases from GLG and goodies the local grow store. Cash baby! The grow store doesn't get near the $ they used to before I put the plug in the jug. Happy dirt here.

Remember @Johne71, these lights actually save money, lol , and people are getting 2+ grams per watt... if you compare to buying ounces of the street your definitely saving money... technically couches are a losing investment... means you investing in sitting around, no resale value... fairly disposable item these days... and if you get a really nice one the wife wont want you trimming your weed on it either, ...I'm already convinced now you just gotta practice the sales pitch..

Do a outside grow.Use the fund's from that to buy a new light or two.With my wife i just use math with her.If the math makes sense than conversation is over.

Now I know what to tell my wife when she gets the credit card bill for lights, etc. That's part of why that has been put off. Thanks z-lab rats! She was a bit concerned at the regular delivery of boxes from GLG,  until I gave her the per seed price after all the Bad Dawg Freebies. I think the pumpkin seeds I  looked at were more!

In haven’t been selling. Just growing for fun and myself/family.   Spent a decent amount already for a hobby.  I grow all year...just need to find the right situation I’m comfortable with.   It’s awesome seeing all the cool tech.

HLG 550 RSPEC pounding out the girth. Well worth the price in my opinion. Have the new growcraft x4 600 up with next round under them. Curious to see how they compare
