@MaD-VapoR I saw your post about dli and your 600r. I haven’t been able to effectively measure using the phone apps. Is that what you used?
Photone app on iPhone……with diffuser. I found that I was over lighting in a big way. LED is way different than 600w HPS. lol Next grow I will start taking dli readings at the start.
Can you convert what you’re getting into watts from the wall? I never went above 500 watts last grow.
I have a “chart” from HLG that shows what each “click” draws from the wall. I’ll find it and post it here.
This is the response I got from HLG:
Here is a breakdown for the dimmer on your 600R:
The 1st click has too much resistance to turn the lights on
The 2 click is about 20%
The 3 to 4 click is 50%
The 6 is about 80%
The 8 to 10 close to 100%
I have a watt meter so I can measure from the wall. I was asking if you had a way to compare what your app shows you to the watts from the wall.
Ooooh…lol. No, I don’t have a way to do that.
I got the same chart from hlg, I also have a 600rspec…I don’t think is super accurate but I can and check it later against my kilowatt meter. The Photone app for my iPhone seems pretty accurate though.
Moving SLOW… I was having trouble keeping temps up for a while, couldn’t get much over 73-75. I have that straightened out now. I’ll grab a pic later
That would be great…let me know what you find out.
It was closer than I thought and there was a a little play with the dimmer switch…
So these were using my kilowatt meter
After a ton of bad luck germing seeds I ended up with 1 mephisto double grape, 2 ilgm gorilla glues, and 1 Dutch passion auto mazar, double grape is the biggest.
I also because of my new found mobility issues came up with this lazy Susan type situation, I can just sit in a chair in front of the tent and bring the plants to me. Works like a charm and also allows me to give the plants a turn so they get different light angles…
New found mobility problems? Yikes I hope everything is ok.
Yeah, I messed my back up back in June so I’ve been going thorough the whole process. Just trying to keep surgery as the last option.
I don’t want to like that post. Sorry to hear that. I agree definitely wouldn’t want back surgery or any for that matter. Hope it heals up for you.
Thanks, it’s could be worse. Hopefully get back to work sometime soon. Lol, there’s no way I can pay the bills with my growing skills!!!
Pretty close for sure! Thanks for doing that.
Just ordered new seeds for the next grow. Fast buds tangimatic, cream cookies and fastberry. Get 2 free seeds unknown autos.
