Madam Calamity’s Candy Factory 🍬

Okay guy’s round 2! So if anyone fallowed my last journal thing’s have changed big time!

This time around I’m growing Cotton Candy Rock Candy and Rock Candy & Cookies by Predicative Breeding. My girls will be in a 2x4 marshydro tent. Also I’m using 4 sf1000’s. I know, I know! Buuuut it’s 385 watts. Considered buying the 350r but I wanted more coverage and wattage. I also changed mediums! I’m so excited to be switching to coco with perlite. Bye bye happy frog and fox farm nutes :wave: hello Jacks!

I have to say I’ve been very happy with the 350r upgrade in the tent.
And honestly, I was very happy with the SF-2000/SF-1000 combo too!
According to their specs it’s actually over-powered for the 2x4 tent, they show a flowering footprint of 3x5.
It fills my space with light easily at less than half power. LOL!

The first thing I noticed was the difference in the “color” difference of the lights. The Spider Farmers were way more towards the yellow/red end whereas the HLG seems to lean more towards the blue end.
It also seemed generally “brighter” than the SF’s across the power range.

Not to fear though - the Spider Farmers have a home - at least the 2000, in the smaller tent I bought to run autos in. LOL!
And I’m sure I’ll be very happy with it’s performance, just like I was before!

The babies are looking GREAT!!

HGE!!

There is a difference in spectrum, a slight difference in efficiency. Pumping nearly 400 watts into a 2x4 is something I’ve never seen. Or read about.

Let’s pretend they both pull a minimum of 1.5 grams per watt in a scrog, for my own curiosity.

4xsf1000. 385w(1.5g)=578g/28g=20.6oz
350r. 330w(1.5g)=495g/28g=17.7oz
350r retail $549/17.7 = $31.01 per oz
4xsf1000 retail $640/20.6 = $31.06 per oz

:thinking:

Interesting. Or maybe I’m too sick, and intoxicated. LOL. I need to go to bed… but I’m really curious about the ppfd numbers corner to corner with 4 sf1000s… that’s crazy.

I have spider farmer, hlg, Mars, blurples, t5s, t8, and many more I’m sure.

Well, after following the last grow I think I know 1 thing about @MadamCalamity - she’s got some giant cojones!

I have had way too much Pineapple Cake this evening for math!!

And yes - it’s 2am and I need to go to bed too! LOL!

HGE!!
