After I’m done with my current grow i plan on doing the same thing…keep as much heat out of the grow room as possible :sunglasses:

Looking good :+1:

It just makes sense with my setup. I picked up a sheet of 3/4" plywood and cut and painted it white, mounted them to the top of the box and when the lights went in they got screwed down to the plywood which really stiffened the whole thing up. If I need to I can even run a fan across the heatsinks out of the grow space.

Woohoo I got R/O water hooked up! Nor more 500 ppm tap water! Just for the girls though.

Update 3/17/18.

Plants have been transplanted into their forever homes. 7 gallon, using a blend of Ocean Forest, worm castings and coco. SCROG bases installed.

Lights are at 75%----590 watts at the plug.

They seem to filling out pretty nicely! Notice any difference in how they veg under the strips vs your other lights yet?

The plants are holding pretty tight node spacing and are now growing 1" every two days or so. No hint of tip burn or bleaching. Temperatures are more nominal with mounting the heatsinks outside the grow space. No fans!

@Myfriendis410 that is a class looking space you have there mate it is nice and tidy that is what I’m hoping for on my next grow so if you don’t mind if I pick your brain a little when I’m putting in my scrog but because it’s my first time using this technique so I am only going to do one female, so I don’t over do it lol :joy:… And your lady’s looking great standing there, :v:

That’s how I did it when I started. I kinda wanted to validate the technique before going in the deep end haha. I ran a Sour Diesel in the SCROG and my yield was over 12 oz of manicured bud. That sold me.

So my space is tailored for 3 SCROG’ED plants. With these new lights I can lay the plants right up underneath and tuck them up close.

Thank you for the kind words @Johnzy81.

did you ever figure out the problem with dead diodes @Myfriendis410 ?

I never did. No more have cropped up and I am hoping that it was 2 bad strips. I’ll have to order replacements.
