Help please! Is my plant going to grow any more

I know I asked you guys about lighting before but I was wondering what everybody think about ES 180 led lights?

they make some nice lights but check out horticulture lighting group and the quantum board kits. that’s what most folks have converted to. i have the ES-300. it’s a great light but also too expensive. HLG has some great lights that are cheaper. i picked one up for my second tent and it is bright as blazes

Thanks going to look rite now

@KinSEDC since u have both which do you prefer? An which one preforms better?

i don’t really know but moving forward i’ll likely stick with HLG due to the cost. i knew i needed a good light and i knew the ES was good and it was on sale so i grabbed it and have zero regrets. now with a little more time and knowledge seems the HLG is better bang for the buck.

@dbrn32, have you ever done a spec head to head comparison with the electric skies and HLG?

Nope. Just comparing cost to third party test data.

what did that third party data tell you though? i don’t know how to read any of this stuff.

More par per watt on qb’s and they are cheaper.

BOOM. tx.

also, the equivalent QB to the ES-300 has 20 more watts FWIW. and actually @bellabstar … if you’re looking at the 180, the 260W is that equivalent, so even more bang for your buck.

FYI they got a 10% off sale right now

@KinSEDC sorry which place has the 10% off thanks

HLG- just go to their site you’ll see it

@KinSEDC thanks do they come Assembled already I’m not good at putting things together lol

you can buy them preassembled at growerslights dot com but at least watch the video. i was scared of it too but it was really easy and took about a half an hour. all you need is a wire stripper and a screw driver for a few turns. if you’ve ever assembled Ikea stuff, this is easier.

@KinSEDC that’s funny u say that I just put together an ikea bunk bed for my granddaughters man that was a pain in the butt never again I would have paid somebody to put that together for me it was ruff I was sweating an stuff :joy: here is a pic from today do everything look ok I notice a few leaves r curling

pic didn’t post. make sure you give it enough time to fully upload.

a bunkbed is WAY WAY harder than this light. i promise!

@Killadruid @MrPeat @KinSEDC @Myfriendis410 @Familyman @Bobbydigital @Axemanjake23 @LoCoRock sorry guys just wanted to get everybody’s attention sorry if I forgot anybody here is pics from today I noticed a few leaves are curling is everything OK? image image


@bellabstar Leaves will curl so what you have I don’t see a problem. Now if the leaf was in a taco shape, then that is a cause for concern.

My leaves curl when I don’t water them. Soon as they fed, they will uncurl. Usually when the grow lights are on.

But your picture shows healthy and happy little girls.


looks pretty good. could be a little light or heat stress. it also helps when you tag folks if you could recap your growing conditions. when we get chit chatty your original info gets buried above- makes it easier for folks to jump in and and help.
