Probably a few inches further than cfls
Just trying to be helpful any way I can. I’m always having to come up with creative ways to get some things done. Getting old is not fun! And I think using a regular heat gun may be too much heat for this
Much appreciated on the brain storming . I have always end up macgyvering some solution. I can get creative when I need to solve a problem.
Ended up carefully soldering them off LOL
And that is a tip I’m putting into my “I CAN Do It” notebook
Do you feel like you have more light this way?
It’s ok @dbrn32. They seem about as bright as the CFLs but that’s just naked observation. I KNOW they are better so that’s all that matters
I will remove those aluminum reflectors I was just being a tad lazy since my wife was calling for me and I didn’t want to make her wait much longer LOL. That fixture is badass @M4ur
Best way to grow on a budget right there, in my opinion.
Good deal! Later in your grow you can use them to place in corners or anywhere you may need add a little extra light too.
If you can find a good deal on 90 cri 3000k bulbs those will add some good reds for flowering as well.
When I searched for 90 CRI 3000k it came up with a few different types. Is this the ones you had in mind @dbrn32?
I love it great idea there
Your on the right track everything looks great
Sure. Just pay attention to price vs efficacy. A small boost on lumens per watt could cost a lot more. Since this will be to supplement, no sense in spending a ton of extra cash
I will tag you in a thread to see a video about that I posted
Awesome. Watched the video gonna have to check that out. Added the light fixture to my list to get
Diggin it @Tylan love all the cool diy stuff you got goin on and cant wait to see those new strains start kickin!!
Great job. I need to learn more about lighting myself other than what I just read. I don’t understand a ton of it, but keep up the great work!
